The National Parks.

on September 28th, 2009 by mark

George Will once wrote about Ken Burns’ film, The Civil War, “If better use has been made of television, I have not seen it.” I have come to the conclusion that Burns’ craft, his art–is creating masterpieces of democracy. His skills as a documentary filmmaker are legion and as I write this, I’m watching his […]

The Long and Short.

on September 26th, 2009 by mark

It’s rather remarkable that a weekend has come along. The weeks are going much faster, even than they did in the summer when a week is supposed to go fast. Surveys show that the average summer week, particularly when spent in vacation destinations such as camping, Disneyland, hotel rooms and out on the road, goes […]

Threat Alert: Orange.

on September 22nd, 2009 by mark

This is the night that the girls went to see Hannah Montana. Yes, I know. And I didn’t even get invited to go along…..heh. Well… So, I was a bachelor tonight. Aunt Laurie (Sue’s twin sister) came over and brought dinner–Chick Fil A, don’t you know. Good stuff. I thought ahead for a long time […]

Time and Drive

on September 20th, 2009 by mark

Well, a fine weekend behind us. We wandered away from our wonderful church in Westlake Village for a few months. We thought to come to church closer to home here in Camarillo. But, it simply didn’t work out and we’re back in Westlake and thankful to be there. Westlake Lutheran Church is our home, our […]

And now for the weather…

on September 18th, 2009 by mark

Friday night and most welcome. It appears that another heat wave is set to grip this area. I’ve lived in Southern California for the better part of 35 years. That’s hard for me to believe, as it was never something I wanted, but it’s true. Still-with all of that, most friends, acquaintances and colleagues balk […]

Wine and Wings…

on September 17th, 2009 by mark

Well, friends-there are several things of interest about which I should tell you and the first is the wine and food tasting fundraiser at the Commemorative Air Force Southern California Wing. We’re raising funds to “keep ’em flying” of course. In this case, the “ems” are several really great airplanes including an F6F Hellcat and […]

So Not the Drama…

on September 15th, 2009 by mark

I’ve been falling in and out of sleep and dreaming here in the recliner. It’s quite odd but also reassuring. The dreams have a Christmas quality to them and are comfortable, honest and nice. That’s even more odd because my daughter is going through a phase right now and a rather dramatic one at that. […]
