Catholic bishops approve steps toward possible rebuke of Biden

By David Crary | Associated Press U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many of them hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, for receiving Communion despite their support for abortion rights. The result of the vote — 168 in favor and 55 against — was announced Friday near the end of a three-day meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) that was held virtually. The bishops had cast their votes privat...

Breakfast is best at Nat’s Early Bite Coffee Shop in Woodland Hills

For as long as I can remember, Nat’s Early Bite Coffee Shop on Burbank Boulevard in Sherman Oaks has been — like the nearby Art’s Deli — a weekend destination for old-school cooking, a great place to go for that morning cuppa joe, a classic omelette or scramble, maybe some hot cakes to celebrate losing a pound or two (and gaining it back in the process) — and this being Southern California, a down-home assortment of Mexican dishes. Nothing fancy. Nothing too modern. Just the sort of chow that sa...

Fed’s decision to keep interest rates low may sink home prices in 2022

Sometimes you just have to take the punch bowl away for the greater good. Too bad Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and his merry men and women don’t have the backbone to end the Fed’s zero-interest-rate policy and $120 billion per month bond-buying binge. Concerned about promoting maximum employment and price stability goals at 2% with the coronavirus not fully contained, the Fed doesn’t plan to raise short-term interest rates until late 2023, Chairman Powell announced after this week’s Fe...

What to do if you want to move a patio plant indoors

Q: I have a plant on my patio and I was hoping to be able to bring it in the house because it looks so pretty but I figure it would need to be climatized or it would die.

A: Plants that have been outdoors may have some pest issues, so they should be inspected before bringing them inside (another lesson I learned the hard way). Plants that have been indoors need to be gradually acclimated before they can go outdoors, even on a covered p...
