Film Talk By Jack Lyons

11/09/2012 ● By Steve

The 13th Annual Big Bear Lake International Film Festival (BBLIFF) presented some of the best feature length, short films, documentaries, and student films in a film festival that MovieMaker magazine said was one of the “Top 25 Festivals worth the entry fee.”

Ramblings From Randsburg: ON THE TRAIL OF… The Feet Which Made The Floors Creak For Over A Hundred Years … By Lorraine Blair

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

Is it possible to ‘live in this moment’ when you know the floor creaking under your feet has felt everything from bare feet to boots moving over it for more than a hundred years? Sometimes that knowledge can even make the room feel rather crowded...but then this IS a Living Ghost Town....

The Way of Things – Petroglyphs of the Coso Mountains By Carlos Gallinger

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

The Coso Mountain petroglyphs are the last remnant of a society that started thousands of years ago and lived almost to our present time. Through the artistry and symbolism of these petroglyphs we know that it was a hunter- gatherer society based on hunting desert bighorn sheep, and so the desert bighorn sheep loom large in its everyday culture and mythology just as the buffalo hunting societies that once lived on the Great Plains centered their culture and mythology on the buffalo.

Gold Prospecting: Right Place, Right Time, Right Equipment, Bad Technique By Philip Bonafede

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

The old adage of,” if gold were easy to find then everyone would be doing it,” rings so true! You can arrive at the best place at the best time with the best equipment and yet failure to have a solid foundation of good recovery and hunting techniques can leave you high and dry

Real Desert Gift Ideas By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Steve

It’s that time of year again, the time when humanity overruns shopping malls and ships full of Chinese merchandise are unloaded upon our shores. But we have one tip for your consideration this holiday season..... Shop independent and local. Support shopping that supports our communities.

Desert Destination: The Palms at Indian Head By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Steve

Imagine relaxing on a lounge chair of a classic desert resort, Marilyn Monroe to your left, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift on your right. Bing Crosby and Lon Chaney Jr. are dangling their legs in the cool waters of the pool as a breeze rustles the palms and the sun warms the mountains behind you.

Finding the Wild: The Coachella Valley Preserve By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

I remember a Thursday night some years back, when I met a couple visiting the Coachella Valley at Palm Springs’ VillageFest. I was providing information on the Joshua Tree Gateway Communities as part of a visitor outreach program conducted by the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The Treasures of Desertland By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

One of the Coachella Valley’s greatest places to visit are also the easiest to miss if you’re not careful. One such location is Desertland, the Moorten Botanical Garden, on South Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs (just south of the turn where East Palm Canyon Drive splits off and heads toward Cathedral City and the rest of the valley).

Trio: Modern Palm Springs Dining You Can Bank On By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

Restaurants can convey the essence and culture of a community as well as a museum or landmark, and sometimes, they can embody its uniqueness better than just about anything else. A great restaurant is a place where locals and visitors come, not only to dine, but to get a feel for, and be part of, the life of its community.

Experience Classic Palm Springs at Copley’s on Palm Canyon By Steve Brown

11/09/2012 ● By Denise Brown

Time hasn’t always been easy on the Palm Springs that was once Hollywood’s stylish desert playground. It isn’t as simple as it once was to feel close to the spirit that drew movie stars, along with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, out to the desert.
