frome Lisa Bianconi via Nancy •
In honor of Italian Heritage Month, NoHo Gallery LA
is exhibiting the works of featured artist Lola Scarpitti
as well as Italian and italian-American artists of all
mediums in " Viva I'Italia " group show October thru
November 11, 2006.
" Our goal for October is to slowly show that 'guidos,
gumbas and gangsters' are not the Italian tradition...
ART is. The Italian persona is diverse and each artist
in the exhibit demonstrates a unique art perspective
using different mediums and portraying varying
subject matter... creating their own traditions ",

• OUR BOYS
Our wonderful Dodgers did not get to the winning
thing this season but since they are always our
winners we love them forever. These pics were
taken while I went up to the gift shop up at the top
of Dodger Stadium to get matching his & her T's
for family Gladys & Sean.
"FOLLOW THE BLUE LINE" the guard said and
I did that, enjoyed the views of L.A. [ below ],
got my goods and enjoyed my stadium
while Practice was going on the field and viewing
the THINK BLUE sign off on the hillside.

• ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
WILD WILD WEST 1950's
I went to primary school in Noho, then just known
with the gentle name North Hollywood.
Victory Blvd. El. down from Laurel Cyn. is where
I spent my first 7 years from Kgn to 6.
In those years I saw everything from tanks on trucks,
U-2 aircraft built at nearby Lockheed Airport,
now Bob Hope Airport, and even Naplam bombs
drive by on trucks. The school district also
provided many times of non-classroom fun.
There was the usual bus trips to L.A. City Hall
and Olvera Street and Manfull Dairy in Pacoima.
Ah, I can still smell those dairy cows, anyway,
many Events came to the school such as the Sears
sponsered Animal Trucks that would bring the zoo
to school. The LAPD had cars racing across
the paved yard to show us car braking,
or something safety.
Above we see the Wild West
visiting our elementary
with a special show
by Montie Montana
who rode his horse
and performed rope tricks,
he also rode in many parades
for years, and was in my daughter
Jessica's Homecoming in the 1980's
@ Verdugo High School.
