A Trip Inside Omega Mart at Las Vegas, Nevada
Las Vegas has always had a reputation for pushing and breaking boundaries, for stretching the possibilities of what you can legally experience in America. If that can be done in Las Vegas with gambling and other forms of entertainment, why not an immersive art experience? That is the challenge that Meow Wolf, an arts collective based in Santa Fe, rose to when they opened Omega Mart at Area 15 in Las Vegas in February 2021. Neek, Sar and I couldn’t wait to discover what it was all about!

A Happy and Safe Easter to everyone! From Lex and Neek
Merry Christmas to all!
Neek sez: Lex, Sar and I would like to wish everyone a very Merry and Safe Christmas! The following are photos from a recent trip to King Gillette Ranch near Malibu, California. It was the one time home of the inventor and seller of the Gillette Safety razor, King Gillette (his actual name). His fame was to create the thin, inexpensive, disposable blade of stamped steel.
The mansion was built in the late 1920’s by renowned architect, Walter Neff. It had changed hands a number of times after Gillette’s death. Once being owned by Bob Hope, Claretian Order of the Catholic Church, Elizabeth Prophet, and Soka University of America who had opposition from the residents of the area on its planned expansion. The residents sought to protect the Chumash ancestral sites as well as the nature habitats and ecology of the area. King Gillette ranch was purchased jointly for $35 million by the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, National Park Service, Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and California State Parks, who then made it available for public use.
Hope you enjoy it.
2020 Downtown Disney and Knott’s Berry Farm Marketplace
It’s the middle of summer. The scorching heat of the southern California sun is driving us crazy. Our normal knee-jerk reaction would be to get out and have fun. But with social distancing measures still necessary in the middle of a pandemic, is fun still possible? Neek, Sar and I set out for Downtown Disney, determined to find out!
Happy 4th of July!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe 4th of July at home! Here are some photos of a day trip that we took to Placerita Canyon at “Oak of the Golden Dream” in the Santa Clarita Valley in Southern California. It’s where gold was first discovered in California when it was Mexico’s territory. Francisco Lopez discovered the gold on March 9, 1842 under an old Oak tree. It pre-dates the John Marshall discovery at Sutter’s Mill which was in 1848.
Take care Everyone!
