My return trip to Los Angeles part 2

So, as I left off.  I was in Los Angeles.  The city of angels.  Such an incredible city.  There is so much to see, and so much to do here.  I couldn't begin to list the top 100 things to do in Los Angeles.  But here are some of the things that I look forward to in the summer.  Free summer concerts are best, because lets face it, it's free.  Here's a list of free concerts in the Los Angeles area.  Farm-fresh summer music at Farmers Market, Grand Performances Summer Festival, Ford Amphitheatre Summer Season, Pershing Square Summer Concert Series, Live at Hollywood & Highland, and Twilight Dance, and Music at the Santa Monica Pier.  There are many unique things to do in Los Angeles.  Your probably asking if there are any kid friendly things to do in Los Angeles.  Like I said in my last post, my son which is only two seemed to enjoy little rides at Disney Land.  Disney Land can be pricey, but I believe that my son enjoyed his time more just chasing after the birds on the beach in Santa Monica, and the Venice Beach area.  I would have to say that Santa Monica is one of my favorite places to go in Los Angeles.  I love the Santa Monica Pier, and love seeing how it has evolved through the years.  From a mini arcade, restaurants, games, and rides.  Me, and my family also took a walk around the 3rd Street Promenade.  Many places to eat, shops, movie theaters, and can't forget the Promenade Mall.  They also have street entertainers, which don't mind a little donation to help their cause.  So much has change through the years to this mall.  Welcome to the 21 century I guess.  It has a more open and spacious feel to it from the 15 years, or so when I knew it primarily as an indoor shopping experience.  Enough of my ramble now.  More to come.  Los Angeles has to be one of my favorite destination spots.  I hope that helped with your future family, couples, or single trips out to Southern California.  More to come soon.  Please subscribe or follow.

Script Writing and Software

Okay, so you have probably said to yourself, I want to write a script, but how do I go about doing that?  There are different types of script writing software.  I know that you maybe saying to yourself that I don't really have the money to invest in something like Final Draft.  I feel the same way you do.  My answer is celtx script writing software.  It is free, and works well to use.  Whether you are writing a movie, stage play, or t.v. script it does the trick.  I have used the program for a little over two years now.  I have since bought other screen writing software, but it was great for what I needed it for.  I hope that helps give you a little insight of what some free programs have to offer.  Celtx is the way to go for sure.  Please follow, leave a comment.  If you would like the Celtx program, you can use my search engine at the top of the page to find the free link for download.  Thanks for reading.  Much luck to you, and your writing projects.

like to visit often, because they are considered to me, to be 

sweepstakes worth entering.  Or you can search for your favorites that 

you like.  I usually like to enter sweepstakes that have, either cash 

payouts, or some type of electronic giveaway. Sometimes, I like to also 

enter ones that will send you on a trip.  I guess we could all go for a 

little vacation.  I remember winning a local raffle, and remember how 

excited I was winning it.  I dream about winning the lottery, but who 

doesn't?  If you like my helpful tips, please follow.  Updates and more 

to come.  Lets all win big!

Prostate Health

I would like to talk a little bit about my own personal struggles with Prostate health.  

Years ago after foregoing a few trips to the hospital over a lack of understanding of 

what it meant to have great Prostate health, I find that as I get older, it is more 

important as ever to make sure that I maintain good overall health.  Educating 

myself, as far as, exercising, having a balanced nutritional diet, adding more fiber 

to my meals, Men's Dietary Supplements, a healthy lifestyle, and specialist check-

ups can mean the world of difference to a great, and healthy prostate.  Vitamins 

have helped me to feel in the holes, so to speak, where I may have been somewhat 

deficit in my overall nutritional health.  Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy, or Benign Prostatic

Hyperplasia, or B.P.H is a common part of aging.  It can also mimic a male cancer, or an

enlarged prostate.  It's something that I have suffered from since my mid twenties.

I also seem to have plenty of back pain, but it's not like it's back cancer or anything.

That extends from my feet, but that is another topic for another time.  Please, always

consult your primary care physician for the best advice on Prostate health and nutrition.

More to come on men's health.  Stay tuned.

Infamous 2 Review (Exclusive for PS3 Only)

Infamous 2 is a great and highly acclaimed game by the makers of Sucker Punch 

Productions.  I was eagerly waiting for this sequel to come out.  I became an instant 

fan when I received my playstation 3 with a christmas bundle back in 2009.  It had 

Batman Arkham Asylum, The Dark Knight film, and of course Infamous.  At first I 

wasn't sure what to expect from this game.  I thought that maybe I would play it for a 

little bit to see how things go.  I never expected to not be able to put the control 

down.  What a great game I thought.  You could actually choose a good or evil 

karma path. Cole being the man character in a city that was destroyed because he 

possessed the powers of electricity, and as a conduit had new found powers.  Not 

going to spoil the plot for those of you that haven't played the first one yet, but I 

wanted to give you a basis of the game.  No game that I played before would ever 

let you chose the path you wanted to follow.  I was thinking that I found a game to 

put on my top ten lists for favorite games of all time.  Sucker Punch had definitely 

out done themselves.  Needless to say, I finished the game in a little bit over a 

week.  It has great playability, because there are so many side missions, and other 

things to collect.  So even if you finish the game.  It lets you pick up after you finish, 

and complete those side missions.  Now that I explained a little history of the first 

Infamous, it is on to Infamous 2.  I found that picking up a copy of any game, like at 

Amazon, can save you loads of money.  Great discounts, because most game type 

stores will charge you full price.  Infamous 2 has in my opinion better features than 

the first because it gives you more of an arsenal of things to choose from.  Like in 

the first Infamous, you have weapons like a rocket launcher, grenades, the power 

to heal, or take away life.  Also, your main weapon, which is a bolt stream, and 

some other special abilities that you can unlock and buy as you progress in the 

game.  Infamous 2 improves your physical fighting abilities, by allowing you to use 

a weapon, and combo your enemies with.  With a special finisher type move you 

are able to restore your energy in no time.  This will be definitely one of those 

games that you will not be able to put down.  I give it a 10 out of 10 for all around 

game play, and replay value.  I suggest you head over to Amazon and pick up a 

copy today.  I'm am one of those Infamous gamers for sure.  Can't wait for an

Infamous sequel for sure.  I would like to give a Infamous 2 interview if that is

possible.  I heard there may be an Infamous sequel.  Hopefully I will be able to

load one of Infamous 2 screens.  I love the screen shots.  Especially when Cole

is doing a finish move.  If you haven't played it, I would highly recommend the

first one, because you can continue your game play if you choose from your

first Infamous game.  Well that's all for now.  Pick a karma, and play.

My return trip to Los Angeles

This past January seems like a short time ago.  The start of a New Year.  

Champagne and count downs for another year gone.  2011 seems to be going past 

quickly now.  I can say that I had a blast at the start of the New Year, by visiting the

Los Angeles area of California.  I believe that it has been about fifteen years, or so, 

since my last visit.  Great memories of taking long strolls around Venice Beach.  

Watching all of the interesting, acts perform there.  Grabbing a slice of pizza from

one of the local vendors.  Or even grabbing a pair of inexpensive sunglasses.  I try 

to never pay full price for a new pair, considering the fact that I always seem to 

break the pair I have for one reason, or another.  The ambiance is always in the

air.  Whether it's men, and women weightlifting on muscle beach, or guys playing 

pick up basketball games at the courts.  There is definitely something for everyone 

to do.  I wouldn't just take my word for it.  Fun for the whole family.  That's exactly

what I had.  Loads of fun with my family.  Running along the shore of the beach, 

and letting the water from the tide mix with the sand, and dissolve on your feet..  

Making sand castles with my son was a high point for me as well.  I even enjoyed

watching a different variation of tennis, called paddle tennis.  The court is much 

smaller, and you don't have a traditional racket.  A small paddle like in ping pong.  

Not your regular Wilson type racket.  Regular tennis balls are still used to play

the game, so it didn't seem to foreign to me.  We actually stayed at the Best Western 

in the airport area of Los Angeles.  I would have to say that it was very fairly priced, 

and clean.  I was really excited about the covered parking on site.  I thought

the price for parking was very reasonable.  We had a very spacious room with two 

beds, and a nice size T.V. with HBO.  It reminded me of our flat screen Vizio back 

home in Salt Lake City, Utah.  When we arrived, we actually moped a little about

not bringing along the Playstation 3, just in case we got bored.  Being bored never 

happened by the way.  Not even remotely, crossed our minds.  The other thing I 

really liked about staying at the Best Western, would have to be the convenience to 

other places to eat.  When I say convenience.  I mean, right across the street. 

Panda Express was a favorite of ours to frequent, after a long day on the town.  I 

will tell you more about our trips around town later.  How can I forget free wifi.  Not 

just free wifi, but very fast wifi.  Pages load in an instant.  Especially important, 

when we would google everything first, to make sure we didn't get lost on our way 

to something.   Nothing could beat the breakfast in the mornings.  I would always 

make sure that we were up before breakfast was over.  Making waffles in the 

morning became routine for me to do.  In our room we could overlook the pool 

area, which I thought added a nice twist to a great Hotel.  Even if you didn't want to 

take advantage of the food places right across the street, you could easily cruise 

too over 20 restaurants in the area, within a  4 mile radius.  Such a friendly staff, I 

would say topped off a perfect stay.  The Best Western I would say became our 

favorite destination Hotel to stay, for the affordability, and sure convenience of

everything.  There are many things to see in downtown Los Angeles.  Here are some

top 10 things to see in Los Angeles.  Universal Studio, City Walk, Hollywood Sign,

Grauman's Chinese Theater, DisneyLand, J. Paul Getty Museum, and Hollywood

and Highland Center Mall.  More to come stay tuned.
