Yes, California's Governor is a busy man.
Yesterday alone Arnold Schwarzenegger was out and about at multiple
stops in San Diego. First stop, a press conference backing "Jessica's
Law," the petition up for stricter predator monitoring laws.
Among the political mix were Mayor Jerry Sanders, District Attorney
Bonnie Dumanis and Sheriff Bill Kolender.

Then it was off to a luncheon at the La
Jolla Beach and Tennis Club with a who's who mix of www.JoinArnold.com
guests. Chris McKellar, had these remarks to say regarding Arnold's
"Our Governor was exceedingly eloquent,
friendly, and highly complementary of the LJB&TC and its natural
Talking about how much he is enjoying the campaign, he said his
wife Maria is beginning to equate him to the Kennedys. He asked
her "My speeches remind you of Jack's and Robert's?".
"No," she replied, "Your growing waistline reminds
me of Teddy."
He spoke about the surging economy, and that his resistance to
advice of others that he increase taxes has had the effect of
keeping businesses here. He says his predictions have proved correct;
tax revenues increased $20 billion over budget in the last fiscal
year, and now there is money for needed infrastructure.
He spoke at length about working closely with the Democratic state
legislature, building trust and focusing all in power on keeping
the interests of the people of California foremost in all their
Very impressive guy."
Other impressive guests there included
Madeleine and T. Boone Pickens. Pickens as you probably know,
is the smarts behind Mesa Oil and more. The Pickens are also the
incredibly kind couple who contributed millions to aid Katrina
victims, people and pets alike. Seems Arnold and his guests have
a common goal, making things better for people's lives.
In the golf world, there are some clever
entrepreneurs. One is photographer Don Kohlbauer of the Union
Tribune. Don reached an agreement with golfing great Jack Nicklaus.
Don took a photo of Jack's last putt. The last putt.
The photo, along with a Scottish 5 pound note with Jack's image
on it, a sports agreement with Jack, have all melded together
for a slick limited edition. To learn more about this fun collector's
item, go to www.jackslastputt.com
For those of you who are Hawaii bound this
Summer, make sure to check out Aku Bone in Waikiki. This is not
a tourist trap, it's a pure local hang. Incredible food, reasonable
prices and live Hawaiian music every Wednesday, make this a venue
worthy of Hawaii surf and The Chart House legend Joey Cabell.
And don't forget to check out "tiny
bubbles" singer Don Ho. An incredible entertainer with an
incredible heart. In fact it's his heart that has experienced
quite the life saving miracle. Don went to Thailand for stem cell
injections into his failing heart. The result? Don is back on
stage where he thrills so many millions of other hearts. Don is
45 years strong on stage with song, wit, and yes a lot of heart
Don Ho and some
of his favorite friends including Yana Deaton and Joey Cabell,
and Big Lennie!

afford to be romantics."
