So last night was a bit of baseball with some of my friends. It was the Houston Astros playing the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Astros won, so one of my friends was bummed, but it was a decent game for a neutral party.

It will be back to the movies tomorrow night for Deadpool. Maybe I will just lay low this weekend.

This Saturday was the KROQ Weenie Roast over in Carson. It was a better show than I expected. The main band I wanted to see was Nothing But Thieves because I had not see them before. They played early on the side stage.

Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park played his first solo show since Chester died. He held it together really well.

I hadn't

The birthday week adventures went on after the last post. The rain went away, so I took the show back on the road. There were Champion's League soccer matches to watch around lunch. One surprise was my brother bought me a throwback jersey of my boyhood idol, Dwight Gooden. I had never owned a jersey before, so it was a neat touch on his...

So I have been off since last Thursday for my birthday. I take the week off every year. On my way out the door, my staff thought it would be fun to send me off by giving me cans of diet Coke and Mentos. Throughout the day different people would come into my office and hand me a can of soda or a roll of...

Saturday was the day for a trip to the Petersen Automotive Museum for a lowrider exhibition. I think the lowrider thing is bigger in L.A. than it is most places. The exhibition was cancelled, but I still had a fun day at the museum. They change things around often, so it gives me plenty of reason to go back.

Let's see where next

That’s awesome Franny!

Yesterday's adventure was a trip to the California Science Center to check out the new King Tut exhibit. I am not an uber Egypt fan, but my father was before he passed away. I wanted to take the chance try to see what about it fascinated him. The exhibit was cool. It had a lot of artifacts that had never been out of Egypt...

So the quiet nights are slowly starting to go away. Tonight I went over to Pomona after work to see the band Haim with one of my buddies. He has a crush on the girls in the band. I had seen them before, but he was pumped to be there.

This weekend will feature mummies and lowriders. More adventures to follow!

So this week really is the beginning of year for me because the baseball season started yesterday. It is an annual vacation for me. The weather is good so I can hang around the house and enjoy the view.

I bought the new Far Cry and MLB The Show games to keep my occupied before the baseball starts for the day. Far Cry should be

The last full week of winter was quiet for the most part on my end. It was all work stuff. I saw two movies. The Tomb Raider one was not that good. I enjoyed 7 Days in Entebbe more, but I can see why film critics didn't love it.

Last night I went to high school basketball, since it was the state semifinals. My...

I think I might be weird because I like driving around on rainy days. It may be because there are so few of them in Southern California.

I went to The Grove in midtown L.A. the other day for an event by Nike for the launch of a new design for the Nike Cortez shoe. It was designed by the tennis player Maria Sharapova

Last weekend after I got home from Sacramento, I had a good uncle day. I took both nephews to see Royal Blood and Queens of The Stone Age. It was the first concern for the younger one. The fellas had a fun night from what I can tell, but with them being a couple of teenagers, you never can tell.

This weekend will be back

Jealous!

So last week was spent on the road in the city of Sacramento, the state capitol of California, for a work trip. The work part was silly because I didn't need to be there. I just messed around during that part of the day. On the plus side, we finished early each day, so it meant time for other stuff. On the night we
