    There are a lot of heroes in the Libyan revolution but also a lot of pain and heartbreak. Many victims of the war, civilian and freedom fighters alike, have gone to Tunisia for medical treatment. Some are children, some are women, some are men young and old – all have terrible injuries and are far from their families and support system. Family is so important in...

  • Obama’s birth certificate
    After a few years of right wing hysteria over the birthplace of Prez Barack Obama, and questions of his eligibility to be President of the United States, the copy of his birth certificate has been released. Maybe Donald Trump and the others can move onto other issues now? Or will the conspiracy theories start about this is a fake?

  • Irish Black & Tan on St. Patrick’s Day
    We like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a big way here at the Beach.  It takes two PhD’s to put this special Black & Tan together.  Use a lager on the bottom and pour the Guinness on top.  It helps that one of the PhD’s is in chemical engineering.  He’s the one that came up with the spoon. photos by Carol Georgi Dr. Nielsen and...

  • The Temptation of Vegas
    I feel like a woman with a husband and a lover.  They each speak to a deep need in my soul, but neither, on its own, can satisfy me.  That’s the choice between Las Vegas and Shell Beach.  They pull at me, hard, in opposite directions and I need to be both places to feel complete. Throbbing Las Vegas with its pulsing avenues lined with a crazy patchwork of...
