Stuart, who served in 1953 as the volunteer president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, he proposed the Walk as a means to “maintain the glory of a community whose name means glamour and excitement in the four corners of the world”. On February 9, 1960, The first star to be dedicated on the historic walkway belonged to the actress Joanne Woodward, an Academy Award winner for The Three Faces of Eve (1957). There are currently 2,691 stars - The five categories are Film, TV, Radio, Recording and Theatre/Live performance. Every application has to include a statement from the celebrity that confirms they actually want to have a star, they also have ... read more


One of the longest running TV shows of all time, is a day time "soap" opera, Guiding Light. Binge-watching the longtime-favorite soap opera Guiding Light would take quite a while: Between 1952 and 2009, the show aired 15,762 television episodes. Before that, Guiding Light began as a radio show in 1937 — between the airwaves and the small screen, 18,262 “stories” were broadcast overall. Not only does that make for a lot of long-lost relatives, murder, and clone plot lines, that makes... read more

We went to Denny’s for breakfast this morning, as apparently it’s a classic American diner that everyone has to have breakfast at, at least once. I’m sure everyone is aware of this, but far out the portion sizes are huge here! Definitely couldn’t finish everything. We got metro cards at the subway station and loaded them with juuust enough for the time we’re in LA (each time you tap it takes $1.75, no matter how far you’re travelling, so as long as we don’t take more trips than expected we’ll be fine), and hopped on the subway to Hollywood! It was so surreal. We walked the walk of fame and got probably as close as we could to the Hollywood sign (so, miles away) and decided to go check out the Dolby theatre and see if ... read more


To our dismay we looked out of the window in the morning and it appeared that the cloud has been following us from San Francisco. The sky was drab and grey and not what we were expecting from August in the city that brought the world Bay Watch. Not that it could make the early morning view from our hotel any more depressing. We watched a bit of the Olympics coverage whist we were getting ready for the day. Needless to say it was focused around the American athletes (but then I suppose any Americans on holiday in the UK will be making a similar complaint) although the plucky Brits did get a mention or two. For our first full day in LA we planned on going to Hollywood, starting with the sign. My daughter had ... read more

Bags packed...car fueled...itinerary handy... excitement over-ruling... Yayyyy! My friend and I are on a road trip to LA, the world famous Hollywood hub. While I already pacified my wanderlust soul of not being able to completely cover a place as vibrant and happening as LA in just two days, my friend, who was a frequent visitor, reassured that things would be fine. Waking up at 4 am to a quiet, stand-still morning, we headed to the US 101 South Highway to witness the most scenic route alongside the Pacific coast. It was such a bliss to watch the Sun dawn upon the lush green mountains, with its golden rays sparkling on the deep blue waters of the mighty Pacific Ocean. Grabbing a hot cup of coffee and sandwich for breakfast, we drove through the phenomenal Pacific ... read more

We have tickets to Universal Studios! Hello everyone and hope you are enjoying reading the blogs as much as I am experiencing them! We were told by Hugh's friend that Universal was packed out because they had only just opened The Harry Potter World 2 weeks ago, so when we got back we ordered tickets online. Has a few problems getting it to work and had to go back on myself a few times, but as I pressed buy, I realised that I had bought tickets for the Monday and not the Tuesday and it was now 11.30pm Monday night! Stupid system! So, I woke up at the crack of dawn and called them in the morning. Luckily they changed it over and so one excited little girl yesterday was secretly like Tigger, bouncing around trying ... read more


Geo: 34.0983, -118.326All good things must come to an end and so it was with our journey along Route 66. A road warrior purist might argue that we spent more time off of the legendary route than on it and don't qualify for the T-Shirt, but we did use it as beacon as we worked our way across America.Our last stretch along the Mother Road in California allowed us to spend a night in one of the iconic Wigwam Motels. We had seen one of these earlier in Arizona but it was closed for the season. I'm not sure they pass the definition of Politically Correct anymore but how often do you get to stay in a motel that was built in the 1930s/1940s which mistakenly refers to the rooms as wigwams- they are actually in ... read more

After two and a half years in L.A., I'm taking my show on the road again. I've done a lot while here... I've joined a fire conclave, spun fire poi at Burning Man in 2014 1n 2015, face painted at El Pueblo on Olvera Street and at the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round, taken painting classes with Julio P. at Art Works, taken a Cyr Wheel class, done some Capoeira, saw Evita, Wicked and Matilda... and walked a lot. I saw my daughter play a million princesses, Mary Poppins, and Ursula the Sea Witch at Creating Arts, perform in Burlesque and Freak Show formats and fire dance. I helped a friend to live with joy and not die alone. I conquered my fear of choreography and savored the joy of face painting. The time is ripe for leaving. ... read more
