Paying it Forward – to the environment

Posted February 13, 2015 by Surfwriter Girls

“Remember, girls, we always leave a campsite cleaner than we found it,” Girl Scout troop leader Dorothy Gibson would say as the tents were being taken down and the camping gear stowed away. Gibson (known as “Mrs. Gibson” to the girls in her troop and “Dottie” to her friends) had another rule, too. “For every […]

Lucero’s Pasteleria is a second generation, family-owned business. Lucy, the daughter of the founder, is now the owner and works beside her mother. One of my coworkers confirmed for me that they have the reputation for the BEST Tres Leches cake around, which is a favorite for birthdays. We each had a slice for breakfast! Photo by Karen Caplan.

One of my passions is food (obviously) and because I live in Southern California, one of the most amazing food meccas in the world, I continue to explore different areas of the Los Angeles basin for delicious destinations.

Posted February 12, 2015 by courtesy

Orange County Breeze editor Shelley Henderson gesturing while talking with the students in Room 29 during King Elementary School’s Career Day. I’m wearing my Winter work clothes — jeans, a polo shirt, a dark sweatshirt, and billed baseball cap. The kids wanted to know if I ever wear a dress. I told them sometimes, but not usually because I never know what sort of situation I’ll find myself in. I would rather feel underdressed at a business meeting than have to hike around a muddy field in high heels, nylons and a flippy skirt! Photo by the nice substitute teacher in charge that day.
