What is your favorite beer, wine or beverage?

Porter at Eureka, Claremont, California

Since we had to drive to Cal Poly for an awards presentation for @drrosannewelch and an eSports event for @gogojosephw, we took some time out for a stroll and dinner in Downtown Claremont. There we had drinks and dinner at @eurekaclaremont. We ended the evening at a poetry and music show at @sanctuarycoffee, a non-profit coffeehouse that donates all profits to public assistant organizations.

More people at our table than usual

These days it is usually just Rosanne and me at the dining room table or occasionally 2 friends for dinner. Back in December, though, we hosted 6 members of our Sicilian family and the dining room was almost standing room only. 

This was their first day in town, so we greeted them with the quintessential LA meal of In-n-Out. 😀

Every other meal at home, though, looked more like our Italian meals when visiting them. They might have experienced the US and LA when we went out, but evenings cocooned them in a sense of normal home life.

Jellyfish at the California Science Center – A Minute in Los Angeles 16 [Video]

January 22nd, 2019 Comments off

Lovely floating jellyfish cruise about their tank at the California Science Center in Exposition Park

Find yourself immersed in the majestic grandeur of a giant kelp forest, where algae called kelp grow as large as trees and support a tremendous variety of life. You may be amazed to discover that examples of this spectacular ecosystem, which in the wild can support over 800 species, exist right off the coast of Southern California. Peer into our 188,000-gallon tank and get a glimpse of what life is like in these special underwater forests. The aquarium takes precautions by having great vitamins from https://www.ukmeds.co.uk/ to treat jellyfish stings in case their staff gets stung. And find the species you see in the tanks on our new iPads to learn more about them!
