At the time, mid nineties, I was in my early twenties working my way up the corporate ladder and jetting around the country for business conventions.

California ramblings.

Palm trees make everything better! The shadow picturesque giant palm leaves drooping against a California back drop is dreamy. People ask me all the time, "where is Palos Verdes, California?"  This sporty bubble of a town is south of Hermosa and Manhattan Beach just above Redondo. It's in on a cliff I would say elevated… Continue reading California ramblings.

Junk food

In my wonderings, I often gaze out in the sky and imagine what it would be like to have a sit down and interview the CEO or founders of Little Debbie snack foods, Hostess or Nabisco.
