Re: Slightly off topic but still in the 50's

HGTV had a show called the 50's home. For those who enjoyed the show, there is also going to be a "That 60s Home" special on HGTV in the future (probably around the beginning of next year).

Re: hotels in palm springs

hello, i'm heading to palm springs solo. which hotel will have a better social scene, the hideaway or the desert star? The Desert Star is intended to be a quiet, mellow place, and so I don't think that you'll find much of a social scene there. The motel is a six-unit building, with only four units ...
