Neil Diamond

How much do you love the Neil Diamond?

He's really the whole package, sparkly outfits, moving stage show, classy back-up dancers, smart lyrics. . . Here are some of my favorite lines from the Neil Diamond song book:

"I am," I said
To no one there
An no one heard at all
Not even the chair

Soo, soolaimon
Soolai, soolai, soolaimon
Soo, soolaimon
Soolai, soolai, soolaimon
Soo, soolaimon
Soolai, soolai, soolaimon

Pack up the babies
Grab the old ladies
Everyone goes
Everyone knows
Brother Love's show

That was so much fun, let's do it again!

I love LA!

And who wouldn't?  It's beautiful, warm, sunny, and the food is amazing.

Spending a day at the beach in Malibu, playing football in the sand, catching up on my long reading list, snoozing a little, and cooling off in the water.  Just look at the smile on this girl:   

You can even find a bit of culture in LA.  These pictures are from the Getty Villa.  Make sure to spend a lot of time looking up, some of the best details are on the ceiling:

I never go hungry in LA.  Here are my top 3 restaurant choices:  1) Casablanca (flour tortilla are made fresh and served at your table with butter), 2) Cici's Cafe (try the Forget Me Not pancakes - strawberries, macadamia nuts and chocolate chip buttermilk pancakes with whipped cream - yum!), and 3) Sabroso (which appropriately means delicious).

And the sunsets are fantastic.  Here's the view we enjoyed during dinner one night:

So long for now, until we meet again my friend.  I'll miss you.
