Evening Under the Stars

Evening Under the Stars, a fund raiser for the AIDS Assistance Program features the B52s.

That's the great thing about Palm Springs is all the retro acts end up performing here at one time or another. In my past newspaper career, I had the opportunity to interview Meatloaf, Vicki Carr and Peter Noone (Herman's Hermits). No one under 45 probably has heard of any of these people.

Ouch! Tickets to this event are $395. Sure, it benefits of good cause, but that's an awful lot of money for most people. That's the equivalent to the pay for writing 30 ehow articles. You gotta just love this economy!

Empty Building

Come on! Weigh in! What do you think of putting a casino here?

Sahara Mustard

Sahara mustard in the high desert. You can eat the blooms. I tried one, not bad; tastes like broccoli.

Visit Palm Springs and you'll have no trouble finding a beauty salon. Here is one happy customer in the middle of getting her hair done at a beauty salon.

Vacant Downtown Palm Springs Library

In 1938 Palm Springs city leaders wanted landowner George Welwood Murray to donate his land at Tahquitz and Palm Canyon to the city so that a new library could be built at the site. In order for Murray to donate the land he had asked that the city would run the library and that it be a memorial to his father.

Today the library is closed for renovation, and , like the vacant Weisman property caddy-corner to it, one never knows if it really will open again.

Smoking a hookah at Cafe Ignition is the thing to do in Palm Springs.

On the Radio...

The set of the Joey English Show. Image was taken just before I taped the show, which had another author talking about his book.

Steven Biller, editor-in-chief of Palm Springs Life, is wearing the white shirt in the image.

He was co-hosting the show.

I explained my new book New Image Frontiers--Defining the Future of Photography. I also gave information about cloud computing, Google presentations and the Wonder Camera (although it didn't say it by name).

The show airs on Saturday, April 16th on KNEWS 94.3 FM.

Palm Springs

Palm Springs anyway you think about it means pleasure.

I took this shot, then twisted and turned it in Photoshop so you could read it.

Tiki Shack

New Tiki store on 301 N. Palm Canyon Drive, Unit E (It's a roll-up unit, unique in the neighborhood, between Belardo and Palm Canyon.)

Nothing like a touch of Polynesia in downtown Palm Springs.
