What use was made of Fort Ord, a former US Army post after closing in 1994? For that matter, I might ask as to the use of any former US military post?

Lindquist? Lindquist? Was the deceased descended from our Dr. Rudolph Lindquist, superintendent of the Santa Barbara school system long ago?
God rest him!

As the world turns! Before going to bed last night, I took a trip into yesterday and listened to Gershwin's immortal "Porgy and Bess," with the splendid voices of Leontyne Price and William Warfield. I had forgotten what beautiful voices both had.

There are certainly some things that cause the eyes to mist. It's the pleasant memories, you see. I did not know the deceased. But I have fond memories of Eric Bruckner, whom I remember from my Santa Barbara High school years. I was not aware of Eric's transition.
So may I express my condolences to both families and friends. I'm so sorry!

Hot Pastrami or Corned Beef on Rye. Yummy! My favorite. And as my mouth waters, two places from the past come to mind. The Westwood Village Delicatessen, or the VD, as we used to call it, in West Los Angeles. And Cantor's on Fairfax Avenue (Cantor's daughter, Marjorie, had just died and at an early age, if I remember rightly). I frequented both for my favorite tastebud delight: Hot Pastrami and/or Corned Beef on Rye.
Heck, often I asked for Swiss cheese to be added.

Quite a refreshing read. It opened my eyes to other cultural contributions to the world of music that go beyond Xavier Cugat, Perez Prado, or Desi Arnaz. However, one other name that deserved mention here is that of Yuri Buenaventura, Colombian salsa singer. My favorite by Buenaventura is "El Guerrero."
