Must Like Hikes

For Dana Dickey, a week at fitness boot camp the Ranch at Live Oak Malibu is an uphill battle.

by Dana Dickey

At 11 o’clock on a hot Southern California morning, nine miles into a guided silent hike, I rub my neck and see salt crystals on my fingers. Before I can alert my guide to this odd discovery, my body starts shaking, my hands clench like claws, and I keel over and vomit. “Am I going into shock?” I ask the guide as he takes my pulse. “No, you’re just dehydrated,” he replies cheerfully. “I see this a lot in heavy Diet Coke drinkers.” Just another day, it seems, at the Ranch.

The Product That Changed My Life: Dana Dickey

A friend of mine tells the story of how, during one of her first intimate sessions when she was transitioning a longtime best friend into a boyfriend (and now husband), he lay next to her gazing lovingly at her. He whispered, ”You have…” Of course she waited breathlessly. My heart? My devotion? My undying love? No, reader, what he said was, “You have...such big pores.”

Somehow that comment wasn’t a deal-breaker for them, but it would be for me. I’m more than a little sensitive about my pores. As a child I overindulged in the beaches of my native Florida, not knowing that those suntans and burns were going to accumulate, rendering my complexion the approximate hue and condition of a salty sea captain by the age of 40, mostly on my cheeks. Unfortunately, cheeks do sit right in the center of one’s face. While people have been known to comment, “What a nice smooth forehead you have,” I know what they’re really saying is, “You might want to put a little spackle on those cheeks.”

Cathay Pacifc Discovery


Hollywood’s Pleasure Domes

While many of the first movies were shot in New York, it was California’s sunny, dry climate and open spaces that drew the soon-to-be-legendary film companies such as MGM and 20th Century Fox. Vaudeville players, stage actors and others who had just a pretty face to their credit headed to Los Angeles in search of stardom. Nearby ranches provided the horses and the sagebrush for Westerns, while entire “towns” were erected on studio back lots.

But movies needed to be seen and a complex business relationship grew between film distributors – usually a subsidiary of the studio – and theatre owners. Movie theatres became the palaces of the people, especially during the Great Depression of the 1930s when films and the grand theatres they were shown in provided respite for a population facing unemployment and financial ruin. But the rise of television and the advent of video – as well as the post-war flight to the suburbs – left many city theatres disused and derelict. However, in recent years there has been a determined effort to restore movie houses to their former palatial glory.
