John Keats was not a man given to effusive bursts of happiness. Witness his brooding “Ode to a Nightingale”, written in the growing warmth of May 1819, but lost to an opening line of: “My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains my sense/ As though of hemlock I had drunk”. And yet even this most melancholy of poets detected a joy of sorts in spring. In “The Human Seasons” (1818) – a short musing on a man’s emotional development over the course of a lifetime – the most positive quarter of the calendar is a metaphor for youthful exuberance: “his lusty Spring – when fancy clear/ Takes in all beauty with an easy span”. Such rare moments of elation were not enough to keep Keats from tragedy – he was dead at 25. But you cannot say he didn’t have a point. The coming of spring is a reason to be cheerful – to shrug off winter’s drab touch, with all its insistence on Dry January and self-denial; to … [Read more...] about The 20 greatest cities to visit in spring

ByGuy Trebay Feb. 23, 2019 WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — The problem with stardom, most any star will tell you, is you can’t turn it off anymore. Certain protocols used to apply when it came to sightings of famous folk in public. But that was in the bygone days of the Brown Derby or Chasen’s, about a billion “creepshots” ago. Now, of course, it is next to impossible for people like Jennifer Aniston or Justin Timberlake to do the boringly normal stuff the rest of us take for granted. And that realization was at the core of an idea the hotelier Jeffrey Klein had for a personal second act. After more than a … [Read more...] about The San Vicente Bungalows: Hollywood’s New Clubhouse

Michael Biesecker and Lisa Marie Pane Associated Press Published 6:17 AM EDT Oct 25, 2018 Washington – Investigators examining the explosive devices sent to high-profile targets in Washington and New York will be working to glean forensic clues to help identify who sent them, gathering fingerprints and DNA evidence while tracking the origin of the packages and the components used to make the bombs. Larry Johnson, a former head of criminal investigations for the U.S. Secret Service who also served as a special agent in charge of the presidential protective detail, said that bomb makers usually leave evidence behind. “If there is a human involved, there is a high probability you’re going to get somewhere investigatively,” he said. “There will be no stone left unturned.” Johnson said it is highly likely that the person or people who built the bombs have been previously flagged by law enforcement. The Secret Service maintains an extensive database … [Read more...] about Bomber likely left mass of forensic clues
