Save the date, folks: December 10, 2016!
Those of you who have heard my daughter Maura sing know that she’s got a soulful, bluesy, powerhouse instrument. And now, she’s put together a talented band that compliments and amplifies her unique and groovy vocals.
Get ready for Ms. Maura & The Misters.
On Saturday, December 10, 2016, Ms. Maura & The Misters will make their public debut at Ms. Maura’s 1st Annual Holiday Happening at The Offbeat bar in Highland Park.
Ms. Maura & The Misters will be rocking original bluesy-funky-soulful tunes for hip, hot and happy holiday grooving.
There’s no better way to kick off the festive season than to party with Ms. Maura and her musical friends – including my youngest daughter and her band The Eva B. Ross Foundation.
Maura assures me that this is just the first event in Ms. Maura’s Swinging Shindigs quarterly kitschy party series.
She’ll also be celebrating the release of Ms. Maura & The Mister’s first single — an original holiday tune serenading the lack of snowmen in L.A.
Don your jingle bells and bring your friends to Ms. Maura’s 1st Annual Holiday Happening.

My wife and I are reasonably fit, slightly overweight, middle-aged hikers who cherish our adventures in the great outdoors – and our visit to Glacier National Park in Montana was a highlight in our hiking history.
Knowing we were in for a memorable mountain trek, we decided to shoot a video account of our journey on the trail to Sperry Chalet. (See video above.)
The trail to Sperry Chalet rises 3,360 feet over slightly more than six miles from the Sperry Trailhead, located across the road from the Lake McDonald Lodge.
The guidebooks call this hike “strenuous” – but, despite the July heat, the bugs, and the challenging elevation, we call it doable: provided you take your time, bring plenty of water, and start off early in the morning to beat the heat.
Sperry Trail hikers will be rewarded for their climb to the chalet by fast-flowing mountain streams, a variety of dramatic waterfalls, magnificent trees, verdant foliage, carpets of wildflowers and air that’s as fresh as it gets.
When you reach your destination, Sperry Chalet does not disappoint. It was originally built by the Great Northern Railway in 1913, and is now listed as a Historic Landmark.
Many visitors to the chalet push on the nearby Sperry Glacier – but we opted to hang out at the chalet, enjoy the homey dining room, and take in the dramatic views.
The Sperry Trail was built in 1902 and 1903 by college boys from Minnesota, and was likely the first organized trail-building effort in the park. These two reasonably fit, slightly overweight middle-aged hikers wish to thank those industrious, visionary college boys.
Onward and upward!
The Apocalypse begins tonight. And it’s going to be lots of laughs!
Our very funny daughter will take the stage at iO West on Hollywood Boulevard tonight for her first standup comedy special event — “Emilia Barrosse: Headlong into the Apocalypse” — which runs July 8, 9 & 10th at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $10 — and you can get them here.
