Videos of Basil – Blackberry on AT&T finally hits 4.5 …

A friend I walk with at lunch often also has a Blackberry with AT&T service, and he found that the latest OS was […]

A drive down Mulholland Highway

New Years Day 2009 – we decide to take a drive, which we haven’t done in a long time.  We decided to pick up Mulholland Highway at Topanga Canyon and drive towards the coast. We packed the dog and Aviva and I into the car and took off.  There are a few treacherous sections of […]

New Year’s Eve dinner at Angelini Osteria

Aviva found this restaurant somewhere, and I’m glad she did.  An Osteria typically serves food somewhere between the quicker trattoria and the all-out restaurante, while also offering more localized, seasonal, special dishes.  Angelini Osteria (323.297.0070) fills that niche perfectly. We started with the fried calamari; the plate is huge, definitely share any appetizer among two […]

Free lunches

We worked through lunch reviewing architecture materials my team have been creating; we’re taking on a bunch of new responsibilities and this is the best way I know to learn enough to start taking responsibility – start at the top and bottom and work to the middle.

Chakra Restaurant

Yesterday we ran errands, purchasing a new iPod for me (I could have done with a black and white screen and a better scroll wheel, but having 120Gb is a huge upgrade given my old, dead iPod as a 20Gb model – hey, I use it for music, I put photos on my phone; I […]
