I LOVE Led Zeppelin and especially Robert Plant. When Led Zeppelin was recently honored at the Kennedy Center, Ann and Nancy Wilson sang Stairway To Heaven. I adore this video. It brings tears to my eyes and perhaps to Robert Plant’s too. Ann Wilson is fantastic!!!
I recently read Ann and Nancy Wilson’s autobiography Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll – which was excellent. They used to do covers of Led Zeppelin songs!
Speaking of beauty, here is Robert Plant when he was younger:
I am bragging, but I met him once. I shook his hand and was in a room with him for an hour.
I also went to many Led Zeppelin concerts in Los Angeles.

1. “Somebody” needs to wipe the dust off their car dash board.
2. I was really hoping that there was a spelling problem here…I was hoping the song was called “Somebody’s HERE.” But no, the song was called something liked “Somebody’s Heartbeat.” The word “hear” is in “heartbeat.”
This is what I learn while I’m driving.
When things get too hectic or too much for you, take a deep breath and
be in the moment!
I shot this last summer when I was wandering around downtown Madison. I scoped out the Madison Children’s Museum for my niece. She lives in California and when she comes to Wisconsin, we are coming to this wonderful museum. I was enthralled by the felt art display above the trash area. It visually showed what items they compost.
It’s all felted and is a masterpiece!
Because I shot this last summer, I am not sure if it’s still hanging there. I shot it with my iPod so the quality is not as good as I’d like.

I bought the bar of soap at Marshalls and it’s so big you can barely hold it!

It was interesting to stay in my favorite Courtyard Marriott in Marina Del Rey, California for the first time in two years. It’s off of Lincoln Blvd and Maxella.
So much has changed in that neighborhood in two years. I could no longer see the hotel from the intersection of Lincoln and Maxella. There is a trendy-looking condo building called The Stella on the corner that blocks the view of the Marriott.
My son and I walked over to see the movie Skyfall at the AMC Loews Marina 6 Theatre.
Turns out they serve alcohol there and because of that don’t allow people under the age of 21!!! WE WERE SO DISAPPOINTED and…pissed off and inconvenienced, might I add!!!
So we walked over to the Marina Del Rey United Artists movie theater and it’s been CLOSED down!!! Basically, there is nowhere within walking distance to see a movie in that neighborhood anymore if you are under 21 years young. That sucked!
They do have a Fatburger close by though, and I always love going there. But I didn’t take a photo of my Fatburger burger because sometimes with food I chow it down before I remember to take the picture!
Back to the Courtyard Marriott…The rooms had been remodeled and I always feel at home there. And they have a pool that I can swim laps in.
The BEST THING is eating their cooked-in-front-of-you breakfast omelettes in their restaurant. They are DELICIOUS and the salsa they serve is home made. The potatoes and bacon are excellent too!!! The cooks and food servers are friendly and I love eating there every morning when I’m at the Courtyard Marriott.
