SNOWING ON THE STRIP
THE LUXOR COVERED WITH SNOW
NORTHRIDGE, CALIFORNIA THIS MORNING... MY FRIEND SAID "THIS IS WHAT I WOKE UP TO!"
I've been in Las Vegas when it snowed, and it's kind of surreal... like art...
I saw it snow in L.A. too... People look around and go, "wow... look at that!"
For some folks, it's their very first time. Snow Virgins.
All those tourists are having a bit of a surprise this week. They didn't expect snow on the palm trees.
I love it when the weather surprises us. Kind of fun.

Bettie Page, the pinup girl from the 1950's, who is credited with contributing to the sexual revolution in America, has passed on to other realms. She died in a Los Angeles hospital after suffering from pneumonia and a heart attack. She was 85.
What was different about Bettie was her popularity, which hit mainstream America at a time when the so called sexual revolution was taking off. Her web site, BettiePage.com, gets 20 million hits a month. Her photos have been popular continuously for the last 60 years. She appeared as a centerfold in Playboy Magazine in 1955. "I think that she was a remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, someone who had a tremendous impact on our society," Playboy founder Hugh Hefner told The Associated Press on Thursday. "She was a very dear person."
"She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality," her agent Mark Roesler said. "She is the embodiment of beauty." She has been said to be a pioneer of women's liberation. She is said to be one of the most photographed people of the last century. Bettie earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in education from Peabody College in Tennessee in 1944, according to her official biography. She claimed that teaching was impossible because she "couldn't control her students, especially the boys." She had similar troubles in Hollywood, being plagued by romantic producers. Her trademark black bangs, and her sparkling eyes became the subject of photographers across the country. The fact that she is so well known, even today, is a commentary on her powerful personality.
Bye Bettie... rest in peace.

AND she also wrote the above book, which looks very interesting to me. I'm going to get myself a copy and read it. AND she also did a documentary on her mother, Anita Velez, a Puerto Rican former circus and vaudeville performer, now in her eighties, and that documentary won many awards. Here is 30 minutes, I think it's the entire documentary, and it is sooooo revealing! Turns out Jane's dad died before she felt she really got to know him, his history, his past, that is. So she didn't want that to happen with her mom. That's why she made the documentary. I leave it to you.
