When Frank Sinatra ended his two-year retirement at 57 in 1973, Warner Bros. Records art director Ed Thrasher came up with the perfect title for the legendary singer's comeback album. The album -- for Warner's Reprise Records label -- with its cover photograph by Thrasher showing a relaxed and grinning Sinatra during a recording session, was called "Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back." "Ed showed the artwork to Frank, and he just flipped, as we all did," recalled Joe Smith, former president of Warner Bros.

For all the madness and hype of modern-day Super Bowls, it's interesting to note how the NFL came to have its first championship game, 66 years ago today. In the 1932 season, the Chicago Bears and Portsmouth Spartans ended the regular season with 6-1 records, and the league quickly put together a title game--indoors--at Chicago Stadium. Chicago won, 9-0, and claimed the title, although the result was listed as a regular-season game.

Orange County wasn't born yesterday. But most of its high-rise hotels were born after 1974--the year that California adopted an ordinance mandating automatic sprinkler systems in new buildings taller than 75 feet. Therefore, the vast majority of high-rise hotels in the county are protected by sprinklers in every room.

When I first met Marcel Montecino he was playing the piano at a place on Sunset Boulevard called the Cafe Brasserie. He was a quiet, moody kind of guy and his music reflected the slow and bluesy attitude one associates with lazy summer nights in a city of dreams. You get lost in music like that, remembering places you've never been and seeing faces you've never seen, like misty segments of a romantic fantasy.
