The setting was the elegant Westridge home of Don and Cheri Fleming on Wednesday evening as the 2008 Man and Woman of the Year Nominees were announced. And if the magic dust from doing good works could rub off, then anyone brushing through that august crowd could then walk directly through the Pearly Gates without setting off the alarm - such was the caliber of those present. First there were the 23 nominees themselves, being recognized for volunteerism above and beyond the call. Then there were the members of the Man and Woman of the Year Committee, all past award winners ...

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. And these days he doesn't mind a bit. In fact, that role launched a side career for him as the "ambassador" for Princess Cruises.

A traditional Ukrainian custom at Easter is exchanging highly ornamental Easter eggs, called "pysanky" (from the Ukrainian word "pysaty," which means to write).

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.

You may have removed ...
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. The variety of takes on the Las Vegas theme ranged from a table full of Elvis-es to female-impersonation to the Renaissance. Anything worked as it was all for fun and a good cause - raising money for the Respite Adult Day Care at the SCV Senior Center.
