Successful Aging: There are ways to connect with grandchildren during the pandemic

Q. Before the pandemic, I was a physically active grandmother to three young grandchildren. Currently, I am extremely compliant with the CDC recommendations because of my husband’s compromised immune system. Some of my family members and friends are less cautious. Because I am not physically present, I feel passed over for those grandmotherly activities in favor of those who are less cautious. I’ve become the absent grandmother which is having a negative effect on my mental health. I feel I have...

Senior Moments: Waiting for a Bobcat fire evacuation order with a frightened kitty

The car was packed. Lark’s kitty carrier, stashed with treats and her favorite Woody Woodpecker toy, was parked by the front door ready for a getaway should someone with a bullhorn go up and down the block ordering us to leave immediately. The Bobcat fire had us in its sights. Having checked off most of the items on my evacuation list, I stopped by the kitchen to get one of the brownies I’d baked earlier and packed in a to-go container. Who doesn’t need brownies in stressful times? I doubted tha...

What you’ll want to plant right now in your garden

1. A little extra effort on your citrus trees now will make a wonderful difference at harvest time. Prune out the upright-growing new sprouts ASAP if you haven’t already gotten around to it. Then apply Citrus Grower Blend Micronutrients, according to the instructions on the label, but don’t delay. These micronutrients will help your oranges especially, and other citrus, to develop extra sweetness – a taste you’ll notice and love at harvest time. 2. Did you know that you can get your crape myrtle...

Entertainment industry treading water after 6 months of coronavirus restrictions

Entertainment happens in gathering places, which is what officials are trying to discourage to combat the novel coronavirus. When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in March, few people could have imagined a world without places to go for entertainment: no amusement parks, no multiplexes for movies, no theaters or festival grounds for concerts, no casinos. But not only did all those venues close, most haven’t reopened. And as we head into fall, no one knows when they will come back. They are part o...

Emmy Awards show could go off the rails — and make for fun TV

Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Sunday’s socially distanced Emmy Awards telecast won’t look anything like it usually does. And that could be a good thing. Late-night funny guy Jimmy Kimmel will host the event from Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, but there will be no audience or traditional red-carpet festivities. Instead, nominees will be stationed in their homes (or other locales) with special camera-and-mic rigs. Organizers say they will be able to tap into live feeds from 130 loca...

Recipes: Here’s how you elevate a cheese snack into a proper meal

Some evenings I’m in the mood for a cheese-snack dinner. Something decadent, rich with creamy texture and complex flavors. A treat that balances the cheese’s bold personality with a bit of sweetness. On the side, a lightly dressed mixed-green salad augmented with raw vegetables. Perhaps some apple wedges. Easy. My father would have dubbed this menu a cocktail nibble. He would have raised a ruckus. His annoyance with the absence of a traditional meat-and-veg evening meal would no doubt have led t...

There’s horror at the drive-in as Beyond Fest brings genre movie celebration to Montclair

Beyond Fest, which bills itself as the most-attended genre film festival in the nation, will take place as scheduled this year. Though instead of indoor cinemas, all of the movies will be screened at the Mission Tiki Drive-In in Montclair, organizers announced Friday. And really, given the mix of horror, suspense and similar fare, what better place to watch this mix of world or U.S. premieres and retrospectives of classically creepy films than the drive-in? “We covet the theatrical experience ab...

The real story of how the violent, drug-fueled ‘Goodfellas’ became a gangster classic

Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” is not just an iconic gangster movie; it’s an all-time classic and a pop-culture touchstone that’s packed with one memorable scene after another, whether it’s that minutes-long shot tracking Ray Liotta’s Henry Hill and Lorraine Bracco’s Karen Hill through the bowels of the Copacabana club or Joe Pesci’s terrifying Tommy DeVito asking ominously if Henry thinks he’s “funny like a clown.” It’s also a film that Glenn Kenny, a veteran film journalist, has re-watched reg...

Disneyland could allow for social distancing at 50% capacity, data shows

Disneyland could theoretically let in 25,000 to 30,000 visitors per day and still allow for six feet of social distancing per person when the Anaheim theme park reopens with new COVID-19 health and safety protocols in place, according to new data analysis. Disneyland could comfortably accommodate 50% of the 110-acre theme park’s theoretical pre-COVID-19 attendance capacity, according to estimates by the Thinkwell Group. Thinkwell Group’s Brad Kissling calculated the COVID-19 physical-distancing ...

These stars of fall flower gardens are starting to appear for sale in nurseries

There is a Chinese proverb that says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” This is a metaphor for doing something without further delay, even if it could have been done 20 years ago, since it is never too late to embark on a new venture and there is no time like the present to start. However, this proverb is not meant to be taken literally since although China, like the USA, has areas with mild winters, it also has Alaskan style winters in certain region...

Is it safe to eat squirrel-bitten avocados?

Q: We have a large avocado tree that used to have great fruit but now, as the trees in our tract have gotten bigger, we have squirrels that seem to delight in taking bites out of many of the avocados. Is it safe to use these avocados if we cut around the bite marks? Is there something we can put in the tree to scare them away or keep them out of the tree? A: To answer your first question: Yes, it is safe to eat the avocados that have been bitten into if you cut out the damaged parts. Of course, ...

Buena Park calls on Newsom to reopen Knott’s Berry Farm

The six-month closure of Knott’s Berry Farm has been “devastating” for the Buena Park theme park and a “disaster” for the city that depends on the 100-year-old institution to drive spending at area hotels, restaurants and businesses, according to Buena Park mayor Fred Smith. “Tourism is a big part of Buena Park’s economy,” Smith said during a press conference across from Disneyland. “Knott’s Berry Farm is the largest employer in our city.

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Looking for inner peace while still being lazy

So, apparently I need to stay calm. I know this because my son tells me all the time. As in “Calm down, Mom!” whenever he’s doing something I consider highly inappropriate like walking around my front yard shirtless, wearing only basketball shorts. He looks like a parolee when he does this, because he’s all tatted up and has visible muscle groups like people do when they get out of prison. Call me crazy, but I do not find this respectable. I don’t know why my 23-year-old son has to walk around o...
