Her mom is a champion manicurist, her dad does the books, her sister works the spa pedicures and the salon is named after her late brother. So for Jennifer Grubbs, it might be an understatement to call her salon a family affair. Valentino's Salon and Spa celebrated its grand opening Wednesday with a fair amount of planned fanfare, including expensive champagne, a raffle, gifts and dignitaries. "It's like a dream," Grubbs said. She graduated from La Cañada High School in 2000 and immediately went on to secure a business degree from Loyola Marymount University and a license in cosmetology in her quest to one day operate her own salon.

A 66-year-old man died Thursday after receiving a massage at a newly opened spa in Glendale, police said. The man was reportedly lying on his back while getting the massage at about 10:40 p.m. at the spa in the 500 block of East Broadway when he suddenly coughed and became unresponsive, Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said. A spa employee said his eyes were closed during the massage, so she initially thought he was sleeping. Glendale fire personnel performed CPR and transported him the Glendale Adventist Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Just about the time those bills come due for your Christmas presents, you?ll want to consider the next important gift-buying opportunity of the year, Valentine?s Day. While Feb. 14 is still two weeks away, you?ll need to make your decision early if you want to turn this year into a special getaway for you and your significant other. This year Valentine?s Day falls on a Thursday and that, no doubt, will encourage more getaway travel than if it came earlier in the week. Many couples will take Thursday and Friday off, or leave late Thursday and make a weekend out of it. The upshot: lodgings for those dates may be a little harder to find at the last minute.

Fire Up The Grill Sometimes, when I am interviewing, my subject says, "You won't mention that, will you?" Or she tells me something funny and adds, "That's off the record." I nod politely, thinking to myself that I've just waved good-bye to an amusing tidbit. One day I asked myself, "If you were interviewed, Lynn, what personal topic would you want to avoid?" Boy, is this one silly. I have a thing about my feet. I don't like them. They make me nervous. As a child I was afraid to go barefoot.
