Hello and Happy Spring! I realize that not everyone is getting spring time weather yet – I do wish everyone luck through any “spring” storms. It’s been wetter in the west than the last 5 years, so that’s a good thing for us.

Thank you, thank you….
Hello! I wanted to thank EVERYONE: family/friends/neighbors/fans/Pepperdine staff/students and ULTRA fans who flew in from out of town, to the performance Friday night at Pepperdine University/Smothers Theatre.

I loved hearing remarks afterwards – this was my favorite: “I felt like I just had a brain massage!” That puts […]
