Down in Baja

Down, Down in Baja

22.10.2015 in Locale, People

Memo’s life resembles the plot of a Steven Soderbergh film… only this film doesn’t star George Clooney, Brad Pitt, or Matt Damon. The star of this film is a short, round, boisterous Mexican hotel valet manager named Guillermo, but like all his friends you can…

Eight years after our first journey around Europe Kim and I are making a rare *return* trip to a place we’ve already been to! A couple of them even. When friends of ours announced they were going to be married in Spain we jumped at…

15.05.2008 in Culture, People

To follow up Kim’s post about what we can all do to help out the situation in Tibet… we called and emailed our representatives and senators and now there is legislation drafted in the US Senate for action to be taken! I haven’t read the…

Obama Bus Down To P-town

27.04.2008 in Locale, People

I’m an unlikely volunteer for the Democratic party. I was a Nader voter and a Deaniac, and often find myself to the left of the mainstream Democratic agenda. I did throw a Rock The Vote registration and benefit show with the help of some laptop…
