Cruising with the Soroptimists

You all know him as Captain Merrill Stubing from the "Love Boat" television show, which aired from 1977 to 1986. And though you'd say "Oh yeah" and "That's right" when someone lists all the other TV shows and movies he's famous for (remember Murray on the Mary Tyler Moore Show?), the "Love Boat" will forever be Gavin MacLeod's biggest claim to fame.

Smile and Say It!

Smiling has a lot of power. It's always good to smile when you're having your picture taken. It's easy to smile when you are having fun, and it's also good to smile when you have something sensitive or difficult to say to another person. Smiling sends a good message. It sets a tone of ease.

Celebrity Waiter Dinner

It was Viva Las Vegas, baby, at the Hyatt Valencia Saturday night, as the annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner gave a number of our local notables the opportunity to serve, and the rest of the lively crowd the opportunity to party and exercise their alter-egos.

'General-ly' a Great Time

On Sunday, there weren't enough seats to go around at the SCV Senior Center when the classic Buster Keaton silent film "The General" was shown. But that had more to do with the music than the movie, as Bob Mitchell, 95, the last living organist/pianist from the silent movie era, offered the accompaniment to an enthusiastic crowd of seniors and others.
