Moteaze’s Salon and Spa in Burbank may well add “gallery” to its name. Located at 4021 W. Burbank Blvd., the salon mixes hair styling with the works of local artists. It held a pre-grand-opening celebration where family and friends of Moteaze, who goes only by one name, gathered to sample some of the hair salon and spa’s services. Prior to the celebration, artist-in-residence Melissa May Curtis could be found with hammer in hand as she hung her works of art on the salon’s gray walls.

Thousands of kids and adults saw good old Santa in his electric wheelchair. And they waived to him! Boy was his arm tired from waving back to his multitude of fans, both young and old folks too. That arm had to keep on waving for the entire parade route. Seventy-five-year-old Santa flew in from the North pole (OK, so it’s Burbank)

I 've been a little tense lately. Could you tell? Maybe it's being home with the kids too much. Maybe it's finances or wondering when I'm going to figure out who I really am.

I don't care why, how or when Lindsay Lohan is in court and wonder what ever happened to real news reporting. I'm sick of hearing people argue and blame each other, right, left and ambidextrous.
