The Shanghai exhibit at The Asian Museum in San Francisco closes September 5, 2010. It is definitely worth seeing, being so educational, exciting and fulfilling. Examples of art from the city's tumultuous times, making history come alive. This exhibit is presented in conjunction with the recent World Exposition in Shanghai.

Preparing for a wonderfully shallow day of watching the red carpet and the Emmy Awards! Thanks, again, Heather for letting me practice my "acceptance speech" with one of your awards. Oops, guess I am supposed to be nominated first?

Romantic souls are always collecting sea glass. Fashionistas are coveting it for jewelry. This bowl of sea glass, geodes and crystals can be found in my neighbor's home.
Haven't we all, like the book's heroine, been enchanted when collecting sea glass? Having the setting be a dilapidated beach-side mansion was the stuff of novels...especially, during the Great Depression. Hard times were emotionally expressed through all of the character's disparate social and economic classes. Anita Shreve's novel, "Sea Glass" will tug at your heart strings while giving insights into the times. Reading it was a great way to celebrate summer.

We were the guest of a best-selling author and an undisputed Malibu goddess. Having meals at her home always feels as though she prepared everything with great love.
So many new tastes...this was our first experience with Israeli couscous laced with figs..., and, shrimp with curry...and, yes, that is steam rising...
...it is nori (seaweed) you are seeing in the upper right hand corner...Dick loved the tandoori naan bread...
