The canals of Venice (California)

We’ve lived here over 6 years and still haven’t seen a lot of California (yet). So we decided to check out the canals of Venice, CA. We took the dogs, they had a terrific time smelling everything. The original canals were designed by Abbot Kinney, one of the early developers of Venice – the ones […]

The #IceBucketChallenge at DIRECTV

We’ve started a new leadership program to take forward our award-winning F-12 effort (Fail Fast, Fail Fearlessly). One of our team learned about the ALS ice bucket challenge and asked us to join her – some of us agreed. I’m there in the video – the fat old guy one in from the front left.

Aviva and I decided to have an art day yesterday, so we went to the Hammer Museum which is part of UCLA; this was my first time at this gallery. It’s very nice, modern, clean. We ate lunch at the cafe – very interesting eclectic menu; I had eggs and chick peas, and a drink […]

Chinatown in Los Angeles (photos)

Aviva and I decided to visit Chinatown; it’s always interesting, lots of tourist crap and some more interesting things. We found some clothes we liked, and fit us (which is a bit unusual – most of the clothes are for tiny people). And we had Vietnamese for dinner at Via Cafe. As usual, I took […]

The Rambling Robbie Rhino cardboard kit

I was on Fab the other day and saw this cardboard kit for sale. It arrived earlier this week. It took me about 15 minutes to assemble – you can get an idea of the size of the finished model from the Mountain Dew can.
