5 restaurants to try near Knott’s Berry Farm

Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park has a wealth of both sit-down and walk-up eateries throughout the park, as well as the Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant just a short stroll from its entrance, but if you visit often you might want to try something different. Knott’s passholders often discuss their favorite places to eat outside the park on Knott’s fan pages on Facebook so we conducted an informal poll to find out some of their favorites. From there, we asked some of the passholders to tell ...

6 places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the San Fernando Valley

I am not Irish. But I grew up in an Irish neighborhood, in an Irish city, wishing I was. For awhile, I suggested my last name was O’Shindler, in the hope that I would pass. When I got out of college, I made a beeline for Dublin, where I spent many happy days (and nights) wandering from pub to pub, drinking Guinness and listening to old fellows (in Dublin, everyone seemed to be an old fellow) telling long tales about the old days and old ways. I never got tired of listening. I suspect in part it ...

Make Any Veggie Sandwich Better by Treating It Like a Reuben

A reuben is not a reuben without corned beef, but that doesn’t mean that reuben toppings can’t be used to upgrade other, vegetable-heavy sandwiches, because vegetables is a good practice. Tangy Russian dressing, melted Swiss cheeses, and funky sauerkraut bring joy to everyone they hang out with, and vegetable lovers…Read more...

Best vegetarian places in Chicago

Chicago has such a long history as a meatpacking town that one of the city’s nicknames was once “hog butcher to the world.” The legacy of that era has evidently caused Chicago to remain a meat and potatoes kind of town, where it’s almost always easier to get a gyro, Polish sausage, or Italian beef than it is to get a good salad. But the city is also a world-class metropolis so of course there are tons of great vegetarian and vegan restaurants all over. For the non-meat eaters out there, or if...

In Memory of Mike

  This morning the brocante market did disappoint, it rarely does, but today it exceeded my hefty expectations it was off the charts good. If money grew on trees and a chateau or two were at my disposable they would be full this evening. The colors, textures, variety, period pieces, the wealth of history surrounded the brocante market today. Our car was full. Maybe today was so good because a shining star looked down wished it so. A man that taught me a great deal about the antique business ...

10 Best Jennifer Aniston Roles

Everyone knows Jennifer Aniston—her decade-long role as Rachel Green in the sitcom Friends made her a household name. Indeed, her relationship with Brad Pitt was and continues to be tabloid fodder—but she really broke through with Friends . Prior to the hit show, she replaced Jennifer Grey as Jeannie Bueller, Ferris’s older sister in the sitcom spinoff of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off . She has had a number of great roles in films since—but has stayed mostly true to her comedy roots. For good re...

Zesty Chipotle Rachel Sandwich

I know that most people like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with lots and lots of booze. I like that part, too, but what I really like to celebrate is the food. Every year my family hits an Irish buffet and we stuff ourselves to the gills with corned beef, Irish potatoes, and every cabbage dish under the sun. Most people wake up the next day with a beer hangover – I wake up with a cabbage hangover. I wanted a recipe to get myself in the spirit of the holiday (and to train my stomach for the buff...

06292018 – Mountain Bike

We are camping with friends in Cuyuna Country State Recreation area, which means that we’ll be getting some great mountain biking in! Since we needed two cars, I was able to leave before the family and get some riding in. We were there two years ago and that was my introduction to mountain biking.  I didn’t ride a lot of trails that weekend, but this weekend I hope to get quite a bit in.  Today was a good start for that. They have recently opened a bunch of new trails and basically you ride out ...

‘Ocean’s 8’ Director Gary Ross Talks Missing Cameos, But There’s Only One We’re Curious About

Ocean’s 8 hit theaters this weekend and the Sandra Bullock-starring spin-off from the Ocean’s 11 series debuted at the top of the box office with $41.5 million. That’s enough to give it the biggest opening in the entire heist franchise. It should come as no surprise that a movie featuring some of the biggest actresses working today did so well at the box office. Audiences have been hungry for female-led movies like this for some time, and why wouldn’t you want to see Sandra Bullock having some ...

Thai-Inspired Salmon Salad by Erica

Last winter Reuben and I took a week-long trip to the Sarasota, Florida area.

Not only was the peanut dressing full of flavor, the salmon fillet was also very tasty. This impressed me, […]

Taranaki Tunnel Tour - Part 2

So where was I?  Oh, that's right, we'd just popped out of tunnel 2 or 4 and it was time to head for Whangamomona for a late lunch.  But first there was a little more gravel on Junction Road to get us back onto the Forgotten Highway.Our last little bit of excitement was the Whanga Saddle and all its neat twists and turns before dropping back down into Whanga itself.  As per usual on a weekend we weren't the only bikes there, two filthy trail bikes and an even filthier 1190 were parked up having ...

Dropbox went public on Friday, and is now worth $20 billion.

Now, his stake in Dropbox is almost certainly worth billions. Read Houston's full application below. In 2007, an MIT graduate named Dre...
