Just Above Sunset has changed - split into a new commentary site and a new phototograpy site. The new locations are here - and you might want to change your bookmarks to reflect that.
Many readers have noted that while this site looks fine when using Internet Explorer, when using Netscape or, on a Macintosh, Safari, nothing is aligned and it looks a mess. So from this point forward this blog will be built with software that behaves better on all platforms.
Happy New Year and All That

Light posting, if at all - New Years Eve - got to get out of Hollywood. On the other hand, the new issue of Just Above Sunset is now online, with new material, and ten pages of photographs, from the Catskills to Santa Monica. Take a look.
New Years Eve won't be like this -
There will be no posting here until Tuesday - it's off down the coast for the big family Christmas. If one is to believe the folks who do the window displays at Neiman-Marcus on Wilshire in Beverly Hills, it's all about "finding the surprises."
There no Sunday evening column. Things got backed up by a day. There was this family birthday party down in San Diego on Saturday - Nicholas turned three. That meant the weekend edition of Just Above Sunset, the magazine-format parent to this website, had to be assembled and posted on Sunday, not Saturday. And that takes time.
Check it out. This week, six extended observations on current events, one quite alarming, and one having little to do with politics as it has to do with malls and surrealism and such (it is Christmas shopping time) and includes reader comments - eleven pages of astonishing Southern California photography, five of them botanical in nature and the others… well, you'll see. What about that scientologist Santa on Hollywood Boulevard? And those birds are a bit scary. Note also the page "Glow" is highly recommended - better than Hallmark, or something.
There are the weekly diversions - handy (and cynical) quotes on listening (this was the week for that, as that is what the president says he is doing), and the weekly dose of the weird from our friend in Texas.
And there are some amusing hidden photographs here and there, if you look around.
Some of the material appeared here first, but it has been revised and expanded. Much is new.
Now it's time to relax.
No Tuesday Entry
Other matters have come up, and produced writer's block. Commentary will resume tomorrow.
