Saw actor, Tony Shaloub (Monk, etc) riding his bike on our Santa Monica BIke Path Wednesday. Interesting fact: Tony & his actress/artist wife, Brooke Adams are 1/2 owners of a popular Art Gallery on Ocean Avenue!

Yes, I still love basketball! This year's NBA Playoffs are tricky. Clippers are out! Lakers are out! Oklahoma is out! Chicago is out! In a last ditch cheer, I am rooting for Knicks vs. Pacers in tonight's 5pm Playoff Game. At 1-3, in Round 2, I better start cheering/praying for the Knicks now! PS: I lived several years in New York after college. I have been waiting since Patrick Ewing's New York days. Give a gal a break, Carmelo take charge & let's pull this series off!! "Enjoy" the game!!

I love basketball! I wanted the Clippers, then Oklahoma, then Chicago, then the Knicks... Not looking good!! Knicks "may" be able to pull something off. Then again, I did speak to Tim Duncan from the Santa Antonio Spurs recently. Maybe, just maybe I am meant to cheer for the underdog/unknown Golden State with the respected (albeit new to me) Curry. Stay tuned!!!

Was at a recent event May 6th, where Paul Anka was interviewed by "Inside Edition's" Jim Moret. Paul has a new memoir out called "My Way." Note: Paul wrote the song, "My Way" for Frank Sinatra, the "Tonight Show" theme song, etc...

Walking Santa Monica seems to be thee thing to do, especially when the weather is beautiful & Ocean Front Walk & walking/bike path lends itself to walking fitness! Recently saw a "walking" Billy Joel out & about, staying at one of our Santa Monica beachside hotels. This after performing in Australia a few days earlier=his 1st live performance in 3 years!
