Kat, a friend of Aviva’s and I, brought her schipperke, Dexter, over to play with Iggy and Jett.  I took some video on my Flip – here’s the result, slightly edited (just joining bits and pieces) in iMovie. Translate

5 pics with the new Hipstamatic release and Fashion pack

I grabbed the latest release of Hipstamatic Friday along with the free Fashion pack; yesterday I tried the combination out with four “art” shots and one fun pic; hope you enjoy them! As for the program, the latest Hipstamatic is a huge improvement – the old one would eventually stop working, requiring me to restart […]

The Toy District, Little Tokyo, and a red bud (pics)

Saturday, Aviva and I bundled up Iggy and Jett and drove to the Toy District in LA.  We had high hopes, and they were dashed – don’t waste your time going there, it’s just a bunch of small import shops selling cheap crap.  We did get to walk the dogs around, they liked that of […]

LACMA

Aviva saw that there was a potentially cool show up at LACMA, and we hadn’t been to that museum for an eternity, so we decided to leave Iggy and Jett home alone for a few hours and check it out.  Their mobile website is iPhone-compliant and asks you to save it as an “app” which […]

Shadow Ranch Park

Today was another gorgeous day in southern California so we decided to take the dogs to Shadow Ranch Park which is just down the street (after running a handful of errands). And of course I took pictures with my iPhone, so take a look, hope you enjoy them! Translate

Mission San Gabriel Archangel and Pasadena

Aviva and I decided to bundle up the pooches and be a tourist – we drove out to Mission San Gabriel Archangel.  Here’s the blurb on the Mission from the one page flier you get for the $5 admission fee: Founded in 1771, only two years after the discovery of the Sari Gabriel Valley, San […]

Iggy and Jett playing – 3 pics

Iggy and Jett play together all the time – if one has a toy the other simply must have it! So here are three pics from my real camera (a point-and-shoot Sony DSC-T10 Cyber-Shot) of the two of them struggling over an orange stuffed toy. Translate

Pics from Santa Monica

We decided to hang out in Santa Monica on Monday, so we bundled up Iggy and Jett and drove down. It was a bright sunny day and so we walked the dogs around the park overlooking the Pacific Ocean and then shopped a little and drove home. Translate

Venice

Aviva, Iggy, Jett and I decided to spend Saturday in Venice – California of course. While the beach is the most famous part of town, the city is also very cool with lots of tres chic boutiques. One of my fav design shops, A + R Store, is in Venice. So we walked the dogs […]

Pictures: Toastmasters Leadership Institute and some others

I attended Toastmasters leadership training last Saturday – all club officers try to attend training twice a year; clubs get credit towards their goals by having at least 4 officers training twice in the year. We also had an offsite meeting for work to talk about offshoring; I took a picture of a cool flowering […]
