Hannukah Finger Puppets

image

We went to see the giant Hannukah menorah at a shopping center but couldn’t find it cause it moved to a new location.

When I got home, I was about to light the menorah that my Mom gave me, but my girlfriend moved it and I couldn’t find it.  It had a lot of melted wax on it. So she thought it was a mess and I feared she might have thrown it out. When I asked her about it, she didn’t remember where she put it.

So we drove around trying to get a new one.  Target ran out, and so did Ralph’s grocery store. This was already the 2nd day of Hannukah, so I really wanted one.  We tried CVS and they didn’t have one either.  As a last ditch effort, since we didn’t want to go to a far away synagogue on a weekday that was probably closed, we went to Party City and this is where we saw this cute finger puppet menorah. I snapped the picture of what she called a “baby toy” but I thought it was really cool.

Later when I came home, a Hanukkah miracle occurred! I found our menorah in a kitchen cupboard.  Now if I can only find Hannukah candles!

My Restaurants?

Here’s one of the restaurants that bears my name that I don’t own. The other one’s in Pacific Beach on the ocean. This one is in Rancho San Diego. 

Here’s a few more beautiful pictures near Jordan’s in the back of the mall.

There’s also a movie theater there. We went
to see “Horrible Bosses 2.”

Museum of the Living Artist

A few choice photos from the children’s section of the Museum of the Living Artist. This kid in a cup is just too cute!

Here’s one of the cleaverest things made by  kids I’ve ever seen: A hat with Legos on it.  Wear it proudly!

Here’s an interesting mask one of the kids
made out of an egg carton.

This wasn’t at the museum but I still think it’s quite precious. It was a costume for a baby I saw at a Halloween shop.

Peter Pan In San Diego

I spotted these two near the Star of India in San Diego. What is Tinkerbell doing in the same place as Jack Sparrow? Whatever happened to Captain Hook? And where’s Peter Pan when you need her/him?

Snakes On The Beach

Taking a walk around Ocean Beach, CA in San Diego, an area that harkens back to the hippy era, with all kinds of funky Mom and Pop stores,can be a lot of fun.  People find a lot of creative ways to ask for money on the beach. This couple displaying their pet snakes is an example.

I went out to a fantastic Greek restaurant last
night.  Appollonia’s is not your average “Coke Coke, Pepsi Pepsi, cheeseburger cheeseburger” falafel place. For those of you who don’t know, that’s a mid-century Saturday Night Live reference. The food is fantastic and the classic art copies here are amazing.  Above, you’ll see the goddess Venus as the statue in the middle.

Here’s a sculpture of “Winged Victory” on the way to the bathroom.

Here’s three lovely ladies. Are these the three fates?

Here’s a few textured frescos inside the warm, relaxing atmosphere of the restaurant.

So this is what you see while you wait for your falafel, shishkabob or other Aegan  meal which is reasonably priced, along with the rest of their menu.

He’s a Big Boy!

Today November 1st, is the Mexican Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. It’s a holiday  with a Halloweenish  flavor. Last week, I was invited by a friend who eats fire and walk on stilts for a living named J7 to go to a Day of the Dead ceremony in a real San Diego cemetery, La Vista Memorial Park in National City on her Facebook page.  It was amazing!

J7 on the right and her friend

Here I am below with face paint on for the event as the clown of death. The face painter liked my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving” so much, she traded me her work for a signed copy of my book. The face painting cost less than my books so she gave me $5 on top of that!

The event had a carnival like atmosphere in the cemetery. There was a main stage

image

where many people were in costumes wearing day of the Dead skeleton face paintings.

The one in the middle represents the artist, Frida Kahlo.  Day of the Dead celebrates the passing of relatives in a fun party atmosphere. Food and drinks for the living were also available for purchase right in the cemetery.  Altars were created of the person’s favorite foods and drinks

image

and personal items. Here are some altars that are homages to dead relatives:

This is how we celebrate Day of the Dead, San Diego Style!

This couple is dressed in traditional Aztec costume and is representative of the San Diego State University sports mascot, the Aztecs.  If you attend this event at a cemetery next year, make sure to tip toe around the graves!
