Le Chateau Restaurant Review

Posted on July 28, 2009 | 9:00am

Le Chateau is a charming bistro nestled in the courtyard of the European, boutique-style Ayres Hotel in Costa Mesa.  Diners can enjoy Le Chateau’s tranquil garden setting on a beautiful sunny day or its old-world style dining room.

I opted for the garden amongst the thriving greenery and a soothing water fountain. Read More

A Visit with Buzz Aldron, Moonwalker

Posted on July 7, 2009 | 9:00am

Yesterday evening, I spent some quality time with moonwalker, Buzz Aldrin, and 250 of his closest fans. We all met in the South Coast Plaza Borders Bookstore for a brief talk with Buzz and a book signing. Although I didn’t get my copy of 2010 signed (or, Buzz Aldrin’s recent nonfiction, Magnificent Desolation [a must read for space nerds!]), I did enjoy an inspirational question and answer with Buzz.

One note from Buzz was particularly memorable for me. Buzz addressing his alcoholism after returning from the moon landing [paraphrased] “All my life I was disciplined… going through my Ph.D. required discipline, and the Space Agency required the highest levels of  discipline… after the moon landing, I had realized so many goals, and no longer stayed disciplined… so I slipped into bad alcoholism… but I was saved by the power of love [new marriage].”

Positive guy, moon walker, and concious rapper? Buzz Aldrin: Hero.

If you haven’t picked up the book yet, you may want to check it out at Amazon. Below are some photos of the lecture, and Buzz’ most recent work with Snoop Dogg and Talib Kweli.
