The Hollywood Sign

Signs are designed to signal directions

They’re also able to instil inspiration

As well as hope, dream & aspiration

Ever since I was a school projectionist for our cinema club, I was fascinated & captivated by the word “Hollywood”.

One of my travel dream destinations is to see the Hollywood sign in all of its glory perched high on top of

Mount Lee in Los Angeles, little realising that in 1923, a Los Angeles real estate group first unveiled it as a massive billboard to promote their new “Hollywoodland” development. Little did they know too that their brash operation has come to remain such a lasting significant Sign.

So the Sign from “Hollywoodland” became known as just “Hollywood”.

   The Hollywood Sign is a landmark and American cultural icon located in Los Angeles, California. It is situated on Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills area of the Santa Monica Mountains. (Wikipedia)

It’s more than just nine white letters spelling out a city’s name; it’s one of the world’s most evocative symbols – a universal metaphor for ambition, success, glamour…for this dazzling place, industry and dream we call


Although the Sign’s appearance and purpose have evolved over the years, its basic aspirational message remains the same: This is a place where magic is possible, where dreams can come true.

For many visitors to Los Angeles, there is no more coveted photo than a shot of the world famous Sign. Though it is visible from all over the city from its lofty perch on Mt. Lee, it can actually be surprisingly difficult to get a well angled shot. Many are surprised to learn that it’s actually illegal to hike to (or basically get anywhere near) the Sign, which is set well back behind restricting gates and protected by security cameras and Park Rangers.

Contrasting Abraham Lincoln & Nancy Pelosi

Americans have had great presidents in the past. Abraham Lincoln was one such president. Herein below are some of his great wisdom:

How true in what he said. He had the absolute ability of saying a lot with the least number of words. Abraham could “paint with words”. World leaders should emulate him and implement his wisdom . . . then the present world would not be this topsy-turvy.

People at the helm of government must be smart and act the part. The destiny of a nation depends entirely upon the calibre of leaders.

Consider this true incident of a supposedly great lady politician:

Nancy Pelosi – A “Brain Lift” Rather Than A “Face Lift”

A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of Congress, happened to appear. Ms Pelosi took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.

Would you mind telling me, Doctor,” she asked, “how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?”

Nothing is easier,” he replied. “You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track.”

What sort of question?” asked Pelosi.

Well, you might ask, ‘Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?”

Pelosi thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, “You wouldn’t happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don’t know much about history.”

Can you imagine that? With people like that, what can you you expect of the country? Surely not as dumb as a box of rocks!
