Skate Part

I was doing some YouTube research and would you believe the top-ranked videos for the keywords "Hollywood High" are folks using the school grounds as a skate part--videos documenting the various skaters who come to show off their talents. I'm slightly of mixed-feelings about this, but I do remember being a very young kid once...so it's logical to embrace the reality that Hollywood High doubles as a skate park.

My Life in Lights - Growing up at Hollywood High - By Mary Melton (From Los Angeles Magazine)

Every opera house has a phantom, every theater its ghost. The drama students at Hollywood High School have, for as many years as anyone can recall, shared their auditorium with Olivia. While crossing the stage in a Christmas processional, the story goes, Olivia burned to death when the candle she carried lit her papier-mache dress. Her spirit ascended into the catwalk above the…

Do You Wikipedia?

I was very impressed to see that our listing in the National Register of Historic Places was posted so quickly on Wikipedia. I also wanted to encourage you, if you like to Wiki, to review and update our page on Wikipedia. Possible content is far greater than what is actually on there. I'd love to see this page grow and encompass the depth of valuable information really out there about our school.

If you have the desire to Wiki, please go here and make some valuable…

The Law of Compensation

Somebody says, "Well, I can't be concerned about other people. About the best I can do is to take care of myself." Well, then you will always be poor.

SUCCESS IS NOT AN ACCIDENT

Success is not a miracle. Nor is it a matter of luck. Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, positive or negative. When you are absolutely clear about what you want, you only need to copy others who have achieved it before you, and you will eventually get the same results that they…

Respecting Our Differences

There are generalizations about all generations but be very careful not to accept negative stereotypes, because those in the Silent or Traditional generation are not necessarily inept at programming the VCR, and all Millennials are not short on work ethic. Accurate insights into each other based…

Einstein and his Chauffeur

When Albert Einstein was making the rounds of the speaker's circuit, he

usually found himself eagerly longing to get back to his laboratory work.

One night as they were driving to yet another rubber-chicken dinner.

Einstein mentioned to his chauffeur (a man who somewhat resembled Einstein

in looks & manner) that he was tired of speech making.

"I have an idea, boss," his chauffeur said. "I've heard you give this

speech so many times. I'll bet I could give…

1. Hone your subject line

Try to be more specific. Instead of giving your email the name 'Byrne project', call it 'Byrne project: new deadline for phase 2'. Your email is already more interesting than most.
