Introduction Since 2003, I have been writing and publishing about the community I called "home" off-and-on between 1973 and 2007. The last "go-round" (2002-2007), I was actively engaged in the community. From 2003 until 2005, I served on the very first Silver Lake Neigthborhood Council. Elected to a 2-year term as the top vote-getter, I founded the SL Beautification Committee and served as Vice Chair in 2004. My life in Silver Lake prompted me to begin a community website, "The Silver Lake News". After a slow start, the website is now Silver Lake's "Most Visited" Community website! As of December 2011, the site has rec'd almost 5 million hits! In 2007, Donna and I packed our bags and moved to the next-door neighborhood of Los Feliz. We live in the Beaton House, a beautiful c.1929 Spanish Revival home, dubbed "La Casa Contenta", where we frequently host community gatherings and charitable events.

You can whistle and steam can whistle, so why do you sing in the shower?

Because I'm happy and I love to sing.
