I’ve been assisting a Former Fire Chief and a Former Public Works Supervisor in getting a pedestrian safety app launched that may actually save some lives. It’s a very simple idea, easy to use, and FREE. Though you can argue that it is drivers that need to be more responsible & to treat pedestrians with respect, the reality is, it’s a jungle out there.

Was thrilled to hear the surprise guest with the Brides of Funkenstein with Blackbyrd McKnight at Zodiacs in Petaluma last night was none other than Cynthia Robinson, horn player and singer with Sly and the Family Stone. She sang “Everyday People.”
Last time I heard her was at Woodstock.
“Reality shows – People who aren’t actors, are put into situations by people who aren’t writers. They are reacting in a way they think you would like to see them behave if this was a real situation, which it is not, and you are passively observing it. You are watching an amateur production of nothing.” ~ Stand-up comedian and comedy writer, Dana Gould

Late one night in the early ’70s, I was in a Vons on Sunset near Beverly Hills, when I spotted Leonard Nimoy. Mr. Spock.
“Wow!”, I thought to myself, “One of my TV heros!”
He was alone and was pushing an overloaded grocery cart, with a number of boxes of Huggies, as well as many groceries.
I thought, “Oh. He’s just a regular guy, living his life. Not everything in it is exciting.”
