As someone who lives near the beach, I feel qualified to make the following observation: Seagulls are evil. No, you say. Not seagulls. Yes, seagulls. They dig through your garbage, dump on everything they see, serve only themselves—they are the lawyers of marine vertebrates.  Contrary to myth, seagulls are not friendly. A seagull’s opinion of you is based largely on whether or not you are holding food, which includes but is not limited to bread, ... [full story]

THE WINE ENTHUSIAST Reading "Red, White & Drunk All Over: A Wine-Soaked Journey from Grape to Glass" (Bloomsbury, $23.95), I couldn't help but compare its author, award-winning wine journalist Natalie MacLean, to George Plimpton.

Once upon a Monday I met Mr. Becker, the landscape guy. He arrived while I was cooking lunch, grumpy-hungry. I was prepared to spend money on my flower bed, but it ended up costing something more precious: my time.  “We’ll have to dig up the seasonal flowers before we can add the perennials.” “Fair enough,” I said. “Yup,” he said, looking around. “We’ll have to dig 'em up.” There was an awkward silence followed by ...

MESA, Ariz. - Spring-training performances are like, well, jinxes and curses and other such nonsense involving billy goats. Simply, they are what you make of them. With that understanding, consider the following sequence from a recent Cactus League game at HoHoKam Park: - For openers, high-priced (and converted) center fielder Alfonso Soriano badly mistimed his failed lunge at a first-inning line drive that gave the Colorado Rockies a 1-0 lead. - Same inning. With Rockies ... [full story]

NEW RELEASES   'MEET THE ROBINSONS' - Lewis is an inventive orphan who is trying to track down his birth mom in the animated family film 'Meet the Robinsons.' CNS Photo courtesy of Disney. MEET THE ROBINSONS - Many of the digitally shot movies, even those high on effects, are not filmed for serious depth of field. They look pancaked.

The game begins with a static image of meadow grass and wildflowers that fills most of the computer screen. The image of a small bird briefly flashes on the left side of the meadow. At the same time, a letter appears elsewhere on the screen. And then both disappear. Players have to simultaneously click on the spot where the bird appeared and remember the letter. The better they perform, the more difficult the game gets. ... [full story]

Jim Mazziotti say’s it came to him about a year ago when sitting in the bleachers at Mountain View High School (MVHS) for a meeting of parents with boys in the basketball program.
