What do skulls mean to you?

A former co:worker friend just asked me that, when she saw a pair of earrings I had just made.



For me, skulls never really meant all that much, until I learned about Dios de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

I think of my grandmother all the time. The idea of a special day to honor our deceased relatives therefore allows me to pay a special homage to her. She also made me believe in some "weird" possibilities. If ANYONE could visit me from the dead, it was my Mimi. I dream…

Endeavour Over Pedro

Friendship Park on the hill overlooking San Pedro had to have been the best spot to watch the space shuttle Endeavour arrive in Southern California on its last air voyage. We arrived in the blazing midday sun hoping to catch a glimpse of history and we got a lot more than we expected.

Mary Star Should Re-Look at Football Program

They say that the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  The Mary Star Football team keeps playing against bigger schools, still won't pay its coaches, and have kept the same basic coaching staff (changing head coaches but keeping it all in the family) for years while continually having losing seasons.  And when hey did have a winning season they limped into the playoffs to get their clocks cleaned.  Maybe it is time to actively…

Politics and Politicians - My Turn

I'm not a political person. I don't think like one or act like one. Maybe that's why I have such a hard time understanding the nature of the game. Be it family politics, corporate politics or government politics, I'm still baffled to this day by the need, of some, to lie, cheat, steal and orate their way to a better position in life.

But, I guess that's just human nature.

Where do…

Curmudgeon Corner - An Education Expert

My Rooney thoughts for November 16, 2014Just got done reading Ester Cepeda’s (Washington Post columnist) article proclaiming teachers need to be better educated.  Better educated?  What teachers might she talking about?  Teaching is a profession and just like all professions, you have those individuals who take their training serious and those that don’t have a clue.  When I was in college there were students who were serious minded students to the point of making one nauseated.  Others; not so…See More
