Click-Clacks * How Cool Were You?

Click-Clacks * How Cool Were You?
If you owned "Click-Clacks" as a youth, then please share this blog entry with your friends... CLICK-CLACKS - I was always drawn into the latest fads as a youth. Whether skateboarding, yo-yo's, or even Click-Clacks. Yes Click-Clacks... Do you remember Click-Clacks? I can remember when the fad hit, because I was an immediate fan and bound and determined to learn how to make them work. I can't remember if it was my cousins Kenny B and Roger in Colton, California, or if it was my neighbors Paul and Chucko Gage that introduced me to Click-Clacks, but when I saw them the first time, I just had to get some and learn how to use them. In fact, I wanted to master the new art form of Click-Clackers. In the beginning, resin ball Click-Clacks were not...

Sprinklers - Utah Disclosure Update

Sprinklers - Utah Disclosure Update
NOVEMBER 21, 2015 - As a home inspector here in Northern Utah, when I read the newsflash article in the latest edition of the Utah Realtor magazine I just giggled. I was once again struck with the way that everybody has to protect themselves from common sense. In previous times, buyers of homes had to close on a property, take a look around, and decide what they needed to do to protect the structure. If it was fall time, then they would have to shut down their sprinkler system.  If there was snow on the ground, then they should have already inquired with a seller how to shut down the sprinklers and how to bring it back online in the spring, as well as to whether or not this winterization process had already been done. Then in the Sprin...

Teresa Live - Big Jet Plane

Teresa Live - Big Jet Plane
NOVEMBER 21, 2015 - A while back I created a Facebook Group call "Washington Irving Junior High * Los Angeles * 1970's" and have had a wonderful time reuniting friendships from nearly forty years ago in my youth. It has been fascinating to learn about the pathways through life that fellow classmates have taken. Teresa Crespo, now Teresa Crespo Hartendorp, took the entertainer track and has enjoyed playing and singing throughout the Southern California area and beyond. She recently extended the invitation to come and see her live, and due to living so far away I decided to see if she was on YouTube, and she was. After watching some of her videos, it would be fun to see her live and in person... Enjoy! ...

Hopeful Dreams - The Jr. High School Bus Stop

Hopeful Dreams - The Jr. High School Bus Stop
Memories are an interesting phenomenon. I was going through some funeral photographs of a family friend earlier today and my mind started to wander to the hopeful dreams I had as a 9th grader at Washington Irving Jr. High School in NE Los Angeles, California. As a 9th grader, each day I dreamed of catching just the right Rapid Transit District (RTD) bus so that I might get to see a very special young lady, and some days I timed it just right. This blog entry is dedicated to those fantastic, magical, warm and fuzzy feelings felt in the days of our youth when eye contact is made with just the right person at just the right time and they see into our soul. Catching the right bus was tricky because my 9th grade school day actually started much ...

A Romantic Atmosphere

A Romantic Atmosphere
As the head waiter in a romantic restaurant, my tallest son Aaron gets to sing a great song in his high school play "She Loves Me". The blog cover photo shows Aaron losing his cool with the fighting couple who are killing the romantic mood in his establishment. Below is the YouTube bootleg video version of "A Romantic Atmosphere" and I invite all of you to travel to Utah and catch him in the final two performances on Monday and Tuesday nights at 7PM.     I just love watching Aaron singing on stage. Make it a great day! Michael Leavitt - Orem, Utah
