After all the hype from the weather people about how much snow was expected in sunny Southern California over the weekend, I was disappointed that there was only a tease of the swirling white flakes. In fact, where I live it was more like slush — those rain drops were trying, though.
The next morning, once again, the mountains that rim our valley were generously dusted with snow, which is always so beautiful.
The “Super Bowl” of the film industry — The Academy Awards — was unfurled on Sunday. Film buff that I am, I eagerly await this night of the “Oscars.” The red carpet walk was, as usual, a great beginning for the event itself and, for some, the only interesting part of the evening. The gowns the actresses were wearing were all stunning. Nothing quirky, like that swan dress of long ago, navigated the sea of tulle, feathers and sparkles.
