November 2, 2018

I was momentarily excited this week when I was able to successfully add pages to my web site using SeaMonkey software.  The excitement went away when I tried to place a link that would lead you to the page.  I'm getting too old to learn new stuff but I'll see what I can do.  In the meantime, I'll post the http addresses and hope you can figure out how to copy and paste them into your browser.  

My new book, co-authored with Nancy Wingo, was published this week by Arcadia Publishing.  It features 90 color photos that I took around Pacific Beach beginning in 1979.  Each photo is paired with a recent shot of the same location taken by Nancy.   The book sells for $23.99, plus shipping and tax.  Copy and paste the link below for information on how to purchase an autographed copy.  (Or email me at

I'm thinking Jack Tempchin '65 is a lucky guy.  As the writer of some of The Eagles best-known songs, he should be sitting pretty.  Better yet, he is anonymous enough that he can probably visit his favorite haunts and not be pestered.  Anyway, the 71-year old Colt was part of last Saturday's 10th Annual Aging Expo, which was a good excuse for George Varga to write a nice article for the Union-Tribune.  Click HERE if you'd like to read it. 

Remember when Coors Amphitheater was built in Chula Vista in 1998?  Doesn't matter.  As of yesterday, it is North Island Credit Union Amphitheater.  Think it's had a bunch of other names?  You're right.  Click HERE to read the article in the Union-Tribune.

Speaking of naming rights, I believe NASA allowed as how it was considering the concept.  The humorists on Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, figured Viagra would be first in line.

Bob Belenzon '70 has TWO items for Show and Tell.  Above is the 1964 Montezuma Elementary Graduation program.  Below is the Rolando Little League American Mattress team from 1962 -- maybe.  Bob isn't positive about the date.  The good news is I've posted these on my web site.  The bad news is, the system I used to use, doesn't seem to want to work on SeaMonkey web software.  

Here's the Golden Anniversary issue of the Pacer from October 31, 1968.  Click HERE too see all four pages.
