Robert Frost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay"

Nature's first green is gold

Her hardest hue to hold

Her early leaf's a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay.


Here is a Yale lecture on America's own flinty isolator Robert Lee Frost.

Louis Prima and Keely Smith

This incomparable duo redifined Vegas entertainment in the 1950's.
Here they are with "Hey Boy Hey Girl."

This weekend I saw the truly terrific show "Louis &Keely Live at the Sahara." at the Geffen Playhouse. It's also directed by one of my personal favorites; Taylor Hackford.
If you get the chance see it.

Happy Labor Day!

This year I am going to maintain constant vigilance! I vow no burned burgers! I pledge not a single curled and immolated hot dog!
God Bless and be safe-
