My neighbor, DEMI MOORE is selling her triplex apartment in the San Remo Tower………a twin peaked masterpiece by Emery Roth.

The asking price is a mere $75 million.  She hasn’t lived there for several years so it is time to sell.  She bought the penthouse with her former husband Bruce Willis.

1950’s……remember the SOCK HOP???

I lived through the 1950’s.……….as a “tween-ager”.  Went to every Elvis Concert…….never drove a Chevy……..ate hamburgers at the drive-in………played the juke-box at the “Sugar Bowl” cafe……….and wore the 3-D glasses at the movies.

I won a HULA-HOOP contest…..kept it spinning for nearly two hours!
