Nearly 800 million people are still illiterate TODAY. That’s 1/9 people who cannot read or write, with 2/3 being women and children. While some may not think that helping ‘them’ will affect us here in the US, it certainly does.

As the daylight savings switches our clock back an hour, delaying our Sunset to a timely 8pm and the California warmth approaches to the perfect 78 degrees, it's also time for the beach! While Californians can virtually go to the beach 350 days out of the year (when it doesn't rain), we have been so [...]

Classic Burger: Hamburger Hamlet

By | September 23rd, 2016|Categories: Los Angeles|Tags: , , |

Los Angeles never disappoints when you want a good meal. In fact, it's my favorite city in America for the best food in all categories. We could find virtually anything that our heart desires, and in an instant. But to find quality, we must dig a bit deeper. I'm a huge burger lover and am always [...]
