There is a plain, brown, squarish car parked every night in our driveway that has become an unlikely hero to me. It’s 28 years old and of the make that, to most Americans, is the Rodney Dangerfield of the automotive universe, the low-brow Fiat. Do not even consider uttering “Fix it again, Tony” in the presence of my husband, who practically worships at the Agnelli family altar. If do you say something so rude, Gil will just stare at you before turning his back, deeply hurt by your words and disappointed by your ignorance.

City Spaces Golf Tourney a success More than $55,600 was raised for children in Kenya, Africa orphaned by the AIDS crisis at the 12th Annual City Spaces Golf Tournament on March 14. Commercial space planning and interior design firm City Spaces, Inc. hosted the sold-out golf tournament attended by 150 real estate brokers and developers in Los Angeles. The beneficiary of the annual tournament was Pasadena-based Discover the World, a U.S. coordinating organization for The Shepherds Homes, children’s sanctuaries that offer a safe and thriving environment, and the best chance for children in Kenya orphaned through AIDS to end the deadly cycle of AIDS and to help build the “new” Kenya.

So, I'm walking back to my car after class at UCLA last Thursday evening ? well, it was late, I was tired ? and WOW what a din, what a commotion coming from the parking structure. I saw a few people headed my way hesitate. I didn't see the structure falling down, so I kept going. Then I heard order in the chaos. I heard the beat. Drumming has always fascinated and delighted me, so I followed my ears until I found the source. It was a group of young folk, strapped with hourglass shaped drums, moving with precision and rhythmic harmony.

Spring has blossomed beautifully at the California Poppy Reserve near Palmdale. I went to the Reserve with friends last Sunday and it was spectacular. The sun was playing hide-and-seek so the poppies were not quite certain if they should show their faces. We traversed the 2-mile loop over the gentle rolling hills. I?ve never seen so many poppies in one place before. The poppy is not the only brilliant star in the wildflower mix because the lupine, Goldfield, cream cups, owl?s clover and many other delights were also in bloom.

"We moved here for the schools," is our local mantra. My daughter is a graduate of Paradise Canyon Elementary and La Canada High, now in her junior year at Berkeley — so L.C. Unified is doing many things right, in between various goofs. Speaking of goofs, yes, we do need a separate middle school — and brava to Karen Mathison and Faye Therrien for standing up (among others) to say so. Sigh. Meanwhile, my education was entirely different from that of my daughter's.

Valley View by Fereva Truthfully, I expected it to be a quiet day. Cliff Jones and Bob Tanabe had enlisted several volunteers, including me, to assist at local supermarkets last Saturday for a "We Support Our Troops" effort. The idea was to request donations from folks before they shopped, items which could be dropped in a collection box outside each market, then sent to Iraq to benefit the Marines of HMH 465. The acronym HMH stands for Marine Heavy Helicopter squadron and yes, I know that doesn't make sense in terms of alpha sequential, but that's the way it is. A whole lot of stuff in life doesn't make sense, so we're gonna go with the flow and not worry about it. Cpl. Michael T. Morton, son of LCUSD head maintainance Marty Morton, is a member of HMH 465. Mike is serving in Iraq as I write.
