Los Amores

It’s a continuing mission of mine to bring to light the true History of Beverly Hills.

There are so many parts of our modern culture that come from the Fertile Triangle that we sometimes take it all for granted.  For example, remember that great song that came out a couple years back,  ”Last Kiss” by Pearl Jam?

Well, [...]

All-Hallows Eve

Dia de los Muertos, Halloween, etc…  whatever you call it, it’s here!

Party time!

Choosing a costume can be fun yet oddly nerve-wracking.  Luckily, ole’ BHB has taken the guesswork out of it all.

I famously removed myself from the BlackBerry project when [...]

Startling New Discovery

Archaeologists have recovered prehistoric cave paintings that rival the detail and insight of those found at Lascaux (France).

Here’s one of the French cave paintings:

Lascaux Equine

And below, the decidedly classier and more elegant  ”cavepaper” which actually predates the rather heavy-handed efforts at Lascaux:

Hand-painted early Beverly Hills "CavePaper"

This tells us so much about the subtle elegance [...]

D & D Club of Beverly Hills

We all know the jokes about Dungeons and Dragons.

It’s “Dorky.”  ”Unrealistic.”  ”Hard to figure out.”

But there’s quite a following here in Beverly Hills, and over the past few years the local club has vaulted to international prominence.

If you’re on Facebook, you can join the [...]

Welcome!

My name is Beverly Hills Bert.  This is my blog.

Everything I write is relevant and funny.

I have received several grants and a large degree of private funding to maintain this blog as I see fit.

Mostly, it’s about the most perfect place in the universe – [...]
