I was in Japan for the first time, admiring the sakura blossoms and so many other wonderful things.
A lot has happened in that year, but I'd like to reflect on good things. So a couple weekends ago we did a little sakura viewing out at Lake Balboa in Encino, Calif.
Feeling a little hungry from walking and seeing all the picnics, we stopped at Jerry's Famous Deli on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City.
