I love L.A.! - 04/24/14

A belated Happy Easter to everyone.  I spent the holiday in Los Angeles.  What a beautiful place!  While there I visited the FOX Studios.  You want to talk about impressive!  Check out the picture of the entrance I attached to this blog.

The second picture is of a sign on one of the buildings at FOX promoting an upcoming television show on the network.  If you've never seen "24" starring Kiefer Sutherland, you're missing out.  It's non-stop action!

Sort of like the traffic in L.A.  You better be on your toes making your way around the city.  No matter what time of day, there's a chance you'll run into heavy traffic.

That being said, as Randy Newman once sung in a song, "I love L.A."  You should check it out if you've never been there.  And one last word to the wise, you'll need way more than "24" hours to enjoy all Los Angeles has to offer.

86-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WRITES STEAMY ROMANCE NOVEL

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- It isn't quite 50 Shades of Gray. But a book written by an 86-year-old Utah woman is getting attention because of the steamy content of the book about a bored housewife. Georgia Gorringe tells KUTV it took her five years to write the novel available on Kindle and Amazon. The story is about a woman who listens to talk radio and is mesmerized by a man's voice. The writer's adult daughter says she was taken aback by the amount of steaminess in the book. Gorringe insists the book "No Good-Bye" is all fiction -- but her daughter says much is based on her mom's life.

MUG SHOT T-SHIRT

MADISON, Maine (AP) -- So, what does one wear to be booked into jail? If the "one" is Bobby Burt of Pittsfield, Maine, it's was a T-shirt featuring his mug shot. Burt served a 48-hour sentence for drunken driving back in June. And when showed up for his booking photo, he was sporting a T-shirt with the mug shot from his arrest on an orange shirt. The shirt had the words: "Sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff." The mug shot is getting a lot of added attention, thanks to The Smoking Gun. Jail officials say there is no policy on what inmates can or cannot wear for booking photos.

101-YEAR-OLD MAN KEEPS WORKING

EAST HANOVER, N.J. (AP) -- He just turned 101 years old. And part of the way Herman "Hy" Goldman marked the occasion was to do something he has done for the past 73 years: Go to work. Goldman works four days a week at Capitol Lighting in East Hanover, New Jersey. His co-workers observed his birthday on Monday. Aside from a brief absence to serve in the Army during World War II, Goldman has worked at Capitol Lighting since 1941.
