           Use your library. Introduce yourself. Say anything.

           Follow one of these suggestions once in a while and you will have a better
           neighborhood. You may even make your way softer during the next disaster.

                 Thursdays in Westwood, always. 

                  Friday night on the beaches south of LAX lot of solstice fires. Even a driveby

7)        Feature

              Sixty nine years ago, my father geared up for his 19th combat mission about the 
              carrier Bella Wood. I will forever have to imagine his thoughts and feelings. 

              He said there was no way to get through flak like that and he was right. His plane
              took repeated hits and was unable to return to the ship. 

              What happened has never been told. 

              Today I take a moment to honor, and to thank him for his sacrifice, and for his crazy
              choice to be the only midshipman who couldn't swim. 

               ...and ended up floating in shark infested waters on this day almost seven decades 

              Battle of the Marianas youtube video

              Take a minute to enjoy the spinning of the planet in our warm hugging, bubble at this 
               markable point in the annual loop. Namaste

8)        Lit Minit : "Les Miserables," Victor Hugo.
