Kindred Spirits

  Thank you for responding by email and comments to my question. Your response was exactly what I thought, the majority of you who read my blog do not follow Instagram nor FB.  There is a community here that I adore and that keeps me sane. "What "sane" did she say?" Yes, you keep me sane. The other day I was telling a friend, "... one of the reasons I blog is to help me see things in a light, a loving light which does not come naturally for me. First, I grump, I express without filter and proc...

George R.R. Martin: Elden Ring Is a Sequel to Dark Souls

Flashing yellow arrows on traffic signals are here to stay

Q. Fullerton and other cities have had flashing amber signals for years. I, my wife and our friends don’t like them and there are still drivers who don’t know what to do when they come upon them. We respond to them like we would to any amber signal. I hope that’s right. If it is a trial, when will it end? Some drivers are hesitant to even enter the intersection, until they get beeped from the car behind them. – Don Schilling, Anaheim A. Fifteen or so years ago, Fullerton was one of only a handfu...

Luke Wilson and Martin Sheen team for ’12 Mighty Orphans,’ an inspiring, true-life football story

Ask Luke Wilson what it was like to work with Martin Sheen on the new film “12 Mighty Orphans” and he sounds just as awestruck as he was the first day on location in Texas. “I’m from like the Blockbuster Video-era where I didn’t see ‘Apocalypse Now’ in the theater, I’d never seen ‘Badlands,’” Wilson says of two iconic Sheen films. “So as I started to get into movies and directors and actors, I did see ‘Apocalypse Now,’ and then ‘Badlands, which, you know, just blew me and my brothers and my frie...

Return to the Luberon: Ansouis

Another lovely village we visited in the Luberon was Ansouis. Officially named one of the most beautiful villages in France, Ansouis is the Luberon at its best.   The population is just over 1,000 people, and the residents take much pride in the upkeep of limestone facades of their ancient homes by maintaining beautiful vines, plants and flowerpots.   Two other highlights of Ansouis is the impressive 12th century chateau and the Saint Martin  C hurch.   ...

Where are the Martian scientists?

When Perseverance, the Mars rover, landed on the Red Planet on 18 February 2021, I found myself asking a familiar question: where are the Martian scientists?I’m joking of course, but the idea of Martian scientists—Martian anthropologists, Martian linguists, Martian sociologists, Martian biologists, even Martian philosophers—has become a rhetorical staple. When a writer wants to invoke the perspective of the unbiased observer, a Martian is just around the corner. The trope scientist has been made...

Got a staff shortage? Raising wages normally helps

As the UK’s post-lockdown hospitality sector struggles to find staff, one obvious solution presents itselfFrom Michel Roux Jr to Tim Martin, from swanky Le Gavroche in London to Wetherspoons pubs, the message is the same: we need more staff.

Stop Letting Lore and World Building Define Your Enjoyment of Things

There was a point where I was watching Tenet and wondering if I was watching the same film as explained by reviews and fan reactions. The puzzle box of a plot I was expecting wasn’t there. While there are details that were undoubtedly missed on my first viewing, it never felt like I was missing some key piece of the narrative or like I needed to re-watch it several times to truly have a grasp on whatever director Christopher Nolan intended. A part of me wonders if most of the folks talking abou...
