the pacific coast dream machines show — an annual springtime sensory blitz of chrome, steel, smoke and decibels that’s been going on for nearly three decades — was blessed with picture-perfect weather this year and an expected record crowd.highway 1 was jammed in both directions en route to the half moon bay airport, where about 2,000 gleaming vehicles of a wide variety of vintages and types were on display. some equally impressive rides were sprawled out on the grass alongside the entrance road, overheated casualties of too much idle time waiting to get in.“maddie’s caddy,” a dazzling white 1959 deville, was one of those. but owner magdalena dominguez, 88, didn’t mind giving the car she calls her “greatest joy” a rest and appreciating attention from passers-by headed to ...

* tottenham’s success under mauricio pochettino will not be defined by their performance in comparison with arsenal’s, but by trophies and trinkets. yet for a group of supporters who have been taunted and teased for over 20 years about their inability to finish above their local rivals, this was a day of celebration.arsenal’s decline only makes tottenham’s progress more pronounced. one of these clubs has embraced their battle against the premier league’s financial elite, developing their own, buying young and searching for well-priced bargains. the other is an old dog that refused to learn new tricks, and the promises that their manager still can have come far too long after the fat lady cleared her throat. arsenal are playing catch-up on catching up; tottenham are leading the...

dear abby:six years ago, not long after i announced to my family that i was going to be married, my parents decided to divorce because dad had been cheating on mom. because i allowed him to walk me down the aisle, she didn't attend my wedding. i was extremely hurt by it but decided to forgive and forget. unfortunately, my mother could not do that.for the past six years, she has ignored my phone calls and text messages. i have sent cards and gifts for birthdays, christmas and mother's day and received no acknowledgment (although she does generally send me a generic birthday or christmas card).we were very close before all this started, and i have tried reaching out to her in every way i know how. what makes this even more awkward is that she lives a stone's throw away, and my teenage daught...
