Liberace's Pets

It's been a long time since this flaming piano virtuoso has died, over 2 decades. Gee, how time flies.

Liberace had a home in Palm Springs.

The Work Never Stops

The work never seems to stop on South Palm Canyon near Murry Canyon Drive. It seems as though the construction workers have been working in that wash forever. What in the heck are they doing?

I'm afraid to ask.

Kaufman House

You have to love this house. It's the Kaufman House in Palm Springs. Richard Neutra designed it. The house, which was built in 1948, has gone through many renovations. If it were to be sold today, the cost would be well over 10 million. It's one of the most important mid-century modern landmarks in the world, and I ride my bike by it every day.

Disco Balls in Palm Springs

You gotta just love a business that replaces a light fixture with a disco ball.

I love the night life, I gotta boogie on the disco-round.

Grocery Store War

Palm Springs is in the midst of a grocery store war. The competition among all the new stores that have sprung up is fierce.

The battle to keep the Vons open in Palm Springs Mall has been lost. It closed just as the Fresh and Easy is about to open a block away.
