INSIDE/OUT The first of two parts. I can count on one hand the great loves of my life, and the one I count on my little finger is a tall, brown-haired girl named Aubrey. Aubrey and I were 14 when we met. She was the first big crush of my life, and my first girlfriend. And it would have been among my happiest childhood memories were it not for the fact Aubrey turned out to be a Nazi. OK, she wasn't a real, swastika-wearing Nazi -- more a Nazi sympathizer.

When you're on your own, you can either be the tiger or the rabbit - the opportunist or the victim. A long time ago, Robert Standlee chose to be the tiger. He would mold life the way he wanted; he would make the most of the fortune that came his way. And if fortune skipped his address as it came calling, Standlee made damn sure he got its attention. “If you see yourself as a victim in any way, you're saying you don't have control. But if you have power over your life, you can forgive people and move on,” he said.

There's been a lot of hype in the media lately about gray hair. It's hip (American Idol Taylor Hicks), it's hot (CNN stud-nerd Anderson Cooper), it's superhumanly sexy (Halle Berry in "X-Men"), it's a possible sign of a thyroid disorder or a B12 deficiency if it sets in at a young age (says AOL news). Of course, that's in America. If I were getting my news from the British press, it would be "grey" hair and examples might include some secrets from Mick Jagger's hairdresser or shots of that sizzling-hot Margaret Thatcher.

Laura Sturza Candy Conery is a woman who has run her hands through Elvis' hair. And John Wayne's. More recently, her fingers have tousled the heads of Vince Vaughn and Tim Curry.

John 12:3 tells us, "Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume." (Holy Bible, New International Version) Mary's act of devotion to our Lord was expensive and unusual. Not only was perfume typically poured upon someone's head, Mary used her hair to wipe Jesus' feet ? and a reputable woman in those days did not unbind her hair in public. What can we learn from this act of devotion?

INSIDE/OUT You often hear that the only certainties in life are death and taxes. But if you're a Silva and male, another certainty is that you'll go bald at an early age. All of the men in my family possessed or possess the cue-ball gene -- my father, his father, my uncles, brothers and cousins all suffered the same, hairless fate. It's a fate we were destined at birth to meet and meet soon. No one escapes. It isn't an easy thing, to be bald in a society that worships youth and beauty.

Martina Maina happened to listen to talk radio in her car a few weeks ago on her way to lunch, two things she rarely does. The founder, hair designer and make-up artist at TBirds Hair and Nail Salon in Burbank is usually so busy she skips lunch - but on Oct. 12, she was “just devastated” by the news of the Salon Meritage shooting in Seal Beach that left eight people dead. On Monday, she kicked off a fundraiser at her own salon for the families of the Seal Beach victims.

Burbank business owner Stephanie Singleton says "hair is hair," but her salon day at the PATH homeless shelter in Los Angeles brightened clients' day. The scheduled "Glamour Day" was intended to expose clients to hair, makeup, photography and other services that may not be able to afford. When the other vendor canceled at the last minute, Singleton, owner of Xtending Hair in Burbank, stepped up to create a full salon day for the 10 women who attended. Singleton originally planned to teach the residents sew-in hair weaves and extension techniques to later use on their own. Although she did perform some weave services, many of the women were just excited to have their hair washed in the shampoo bowl.

So I’m driving home the other day and we pass a barber shop. The kids notice the candy stick-like barber pole out front and ask what that means. “I’m glad you ask,” I tell them, and proceed to enlighten them with what Wikipedia told me. “In the Middle Ages,” I start, “barbers not only cut hair, but also performed surgery and tooth extractions. Oh, and they used leeches for bloodletting. A basin at the top of the pole represented the vessel in which the leeches were kept.
