My favorite restaurant at Seaport Village


What a great feeling restaurant! Good food at high prices. But what a view!

As you might be able to tell, my phone was dying when I shot this so it’s reel short.

 

San Diego Comic Festival

I had the privilege of being invited to attend the San Diego Comic Festival last weekend for Free by Photoshop impresario, Stephen Burns.

What a smorgasbord of creativity! First, Stephen taught a lesson on how to use Photoshop to create 3-D. Then I went to another suite called the Crescent Room where there was a participatory lecture about how the ancient Hawaiians navigated by direction. Then, back in the design studio, there was a class on 3D printing. The instructor said they couldn’t quite print organs yet for your body, but dentists do use a 3D printer to print replacement teeth. Whole houses have also been 3D printed for the fraction of what they usually cost, even though they don’t compare to most conventional homes. But mostly 3D is being used to print doodads and chachkes like these below.

Then in the same room, a drone seminar started with Josh Freidman. He showed how his drones can showcase Laguna Beach real estate and told us that San Diego county restricts drones for similar purposes. I asked him if he would fly a drone in the room or outside and he said he wouldn’t. That was a real disappointment. But it was interesting to learn about drones and how they can be used with Adobe Lightroom to create panoramic photography.

 

Here, Josh shows us that drones are now becoming flying cars in Dubai.

“Naked Skydiving” Now Available @ Verbatim Books!



Get a signed copy of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” based on the true story of the personal life of a dream interpreter, travelling through the west coast before 9-11, now available in the San Diego local author section at Verbatim Books, 3793 30th St, San Diego, CA 92104.

Verbatim is a great, open minded space to get zines, modern fiction and classics, in a cool, artistic area of San Diego without that Barnes and Noble Big Box corporate mall feeling. They even have a poetry night once a month. So you can read your work there too!

However, if you’re looking for a bookstore with Wi-Fi, as the cashier, Nick, who’s a great guy, agreed with me, they want you to read books here, like you did in your old college bookstore. Not be on the internet. Maybe even heaven forbid, buy a few. Authors can sell there books on consignment too and get 60%. Just ask their cool staff members. Not many chairs here to sit down, but it’s a great literary hangout!

Upcoming Real Estate Seminar On May 26

Naked Skydiving Now Available @ Mira Mesa Barnes and Noble

After talking to Cameron, the head cashier at Barnes & Noble, he agreed to carry a few copies of my autobiographical novel, “Naked Skydiving,” the story of a dream interpreter, traveling throughout west coast before 9-11.

There might also be an open reading at this Barnes & Noble near the 15 freeway on Mira Mesa Blvd this Wednesday night and I’ll read a little from the book and maybe some new work. You can read your own work too! Check back to this blog for details, all thanks to Cameron and the new management at Barnes & Noble. “Naked Skydiving” is available in the fiction section under the S’s for Schaffner, my last name. If I see you in the store, I’ll autograph your copy! Next, I’ll be working to get the book in every Barnes & Noble

 

Chassidic Pop Art

A few months ago,I went to an art exhibit at Chabad of University City and saw these magnificent artworks , some like this picture of hamantashens, which are Jewish cookies, resembling a Warhol painting.

Most of his work is brightly colored like this, giving his religious subjects an ecstatic feeling.

 Here is dreidel, a Jewish top from a Hannukah game.

This is the Etz Chaim, The Tree of Life.

A Little Early For Halloween In La Jolla

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After closing the sale of my parents home in Oceanside,  unfortunately, my Dad fell down and ended up in the La Jolla VA hospital at the escrow office.  A beautiful sweet woman in the parking lot saw it happen, helped me lift him up and gave him some bandages. She really reaffirmed my faith in human nature.

Afterwards, we went to visit him at the hospital.  Then, my date & I went to La Jolla shores for dinner.  We saw this restaurant  called Barbarella that was decorated thoroughly with these scary animated Halloween characters. In fact, it was so scary that my date didn’t want to eat there because of the giant fake spiders, even if they were near a romantic fireplace.

Since my “Day of the Dead” pictures from a few years ago became my most popular blog, I figured that I should share some of these fun early resHalloween  images as well.  My Dad is feeling better now too.

More Stunning Casa Mira Views

Other modern art is featured though out the complex and there are quite a lot of solar panels on the roof and electric car chargers. Some of the chargers are open to the public for a fee and others are private. They also have a party room for karaoke, an indoor fluorescent bowling alley, and food trucks stop by frequently.

At the beautiful pool,  they  show movies at night that are mostly family oriented. There’s even a merry go round and a choo choo train for little kiddies, and for big kiddies a massive gym called the high voltage fitness center.
