The theatre is a fun way to start the week and ‘An Act of God’ was hilariously wonderful! Sean Hayes delivered a tour de force of a performance!

 Every year there is a ‘Lunch With the Scientists’ luncheon at UCLA to inform the guests of the Iris Cantor-UCLA Women’s Health Center work.  I’m thrilled that Miss Judith invited me.  Here we are just about ready to leave…..Lizzie Girl with Eileen in the middle and new friend, Julie who has the most interesting story being born in Japan.  Her mother is Japanese and her father from Hungary.  Loved her story!

 Miss Judith is on the ‘Executive Advisory Board’ and it goes without saying that she’s my template for doing good!

 I immediately put dibs on this 1925 Rolls-Royce Phantom1.  A derelict, it was rescued and restored in the early 50’s.

 We had drinks and then wandered to the third floor waiting for dinner to be served.  Docent Tom, told us this little Honda motorcycle put Honda on the map.  They sold 88 million of them in the ’60’s.  Imagine!

Finally and can you believe we were at table 11?IMG 0537

 The young musicians are from the ‘Spotlight Academy’, an educational program for high school students sponsored by the Music Center.  One of the many things the ‘Founders’ support.

Time to saunter over to Chateau Marmont to investigate things.  The elevator creeped us out but we were brave. (It’s been years since I was there and nothing has changed.)  Actually, nothing has changed  since 1929!IMG 0622Care to sing a little tune for us Amy?

IMG 0614O.K., enough of old Hollywood…..We wound up at Bar Bouchon across from the Montage Hotel where they have the best tomato soup…..

Brush painting class in the Studio on Saturday was wonderful.  Lots of inspiring conversation by all and happiness finding the mystery of the Plum.
