Just around the corner…

Visiting a Buddhist Temple had been on our list since the beginning.  So when we finally checked into it, we found one in Culver City in a non-descript building that looked more like a home circa 1960’s.  We went to the morning service at Venice Hongwanji Temple.  There was a handful of friendly and welcoming … Continue reading »

If the service had only been in English!

This week, Lisa and I headed to our local Buddhist temple (more like a chapel within a community center).  Like so many weekly adventures, we were welcomed with open arms.  The attendees wanted to tell us about their religion – but without that feeling of someone trying to recruit you.  We were offered coffee and … Continue reading »

Everything’s Coming Up Roses!

I was interested, a bit nervous and hugely skeptical about being hypnotized.  Turns out that the hypnotist we saw was not one of those who claim that they can make you quack like a duck.  She’s more into getting you in a relaxing position and convincing you that you can do whatever it is you … Continue reading »

You are feeling sleepy, very sleepy…

Thank you Groupon.  Not sure we would have thought to visit a hypnotist on our own but with the idea put in our heads by Groupon, it was a must!  Now don’t get your hopes up.  It was not the kind of hypnotist you see on TV (when you see chocolate, you will bark like … Continue reading »

Uke would not recognize me!

I have no musical ability…yet this is one of my favorite We Never’s.  I look forward to our ukulele lesson every week.  We’re strumming, singing, jamming to Brown Eyed Girl (one of my personal favorites), Let It Be, Satisfaction and others that probably sound nothing like they’re supposed to sound.  But we actually think we’re … Continue reading »

Somewhere, over the the rainbow…

The best We-Nevers are the ones that we love enough to keep on doing so I guess that makes this a winner.  Lisa and I thought we would try playing the ukulele. I have never played guitar and I was under the impression Lisa had not either – until it came out that she had played … Continue reading »

Look out Pinky Tuscadero!

Going to watch the LA Derby Dolls in a warehouse just outside of downtown LA was not exactly your typical family-fun fare but we did have a great time.  Both my and Erin’s families joined us on this We Never.  We were probably the only families in attendance but no one seemed to mind.  The … Continue reading »

Channeling my inner Pat Benatar

Not sure why but the entire experience of going to the Roller Derby reminded me of Pat Benatar.  We decided to take the families with us on this one and it was well worth it.  Mostly, you just need to use your imagination. I will tell you this: the arena (if you call it that) is in … Continue reading »
