From my very own couch I enjoyed viewing the filming of TV’s Shameless just across the street. Kudos to the film/TV folks who frequently work in our neighborhood. They are always courteous and make a sincere effort not to interrupt our daily lives any more than necessary.
Opening Sat., Oct. 14 at the Santa Monica Playhouse: ‘Love Affair’
This will be a RARE TREAT! Starring the dedicated and inspiring co-artistic directors Evelyn Rudie and Chris De Carlo, both EXCEPTIONAL actors, with three others in the cast, this is sure to be a theatrical experience! It has been a while since these fine actors have taken the stage together, as running the theatre is so time consuming. Be aware – this is a 7:30pm curtain!
Footnote: this is a wonderfully innovative theatre group. I have never been disappointed in their work!

A shout-out to Burbank Police Department
Sometimes I think we Burbank residents forget how lucky we are.
I got an unexpected knock on my door in the middle of the night recently, which was a bit scary. It was two nice Burbank police officers. Thanks to the observations of a business guard next door, the front door of my parked car on the street was seen hanging wide open and he called police. Nothing was missing—probably just me having a senior moment—but the follow-up was certainly reassuring!
‘Ladies & Gents Night Out’
On the last Friday of each month between 5:30pm-9pm-ish, a myriad of eclectic shops stay open and tons of yummy food trucks offer delectable treats on Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank. The street is abuzz with hipsters, families, kids and dogs (on leashes) as folks check out the local stores.
Ladies & Gents Night Out takes place at Magnolia Park, on Magnolia Blvd., between Hollywood Way and Catalina St.. Visit LadiesNightOutBurbank.com.
