Education: 09/07/14 16:48 THE RULE - A Must-See Film about Engaged Education
Like it’s title, the film, THE RULE, is deceptively simple. Referring to the concise, document St. Benedict wrote in 641AD as a pattern for monastic life, as spiritual and rich as it is practical to create community, THE RULE film profiles how the monks at St. Benedict Prep(SBP) use it as a pattern for stunning success in their inner city Newark school with at-risk students. THE RULE is a must-see -- inspiring, witty and engaging, even if it is primarily the unique, extraordinary Benedictine monks of Newark Abbey that are the key ingredient to make a school work.

Dining: 07/30/14 21:36 Best Breakfast and Bakery in Town
A pretzel croissant, salt-sprinkled and so light it floats, deserves this lovely presentation with service to match at M Street Kitchen bakery. Also from the oven are irresistible over-sized cookies: a salted chocolate chip (divine), a peanut butter so moist you don't miss the jelly, and a flourless chocolate with a chewy crunch. But wait- there are scrumptious main meals. We always order the Farmers Market Root Vegetable Hash with tarragon aioli and perfectly poached eggs though our friends vouch for the Crispy Hash Browns Benedict. And it's two blocks from the ocean in Santa Monica.
