A Pasadena Latina


It’s all in the hands.

It’s all in the hands.

I was planning to write a bit about the Bandini/Elliott family a couple of weeks ago.  But I have to make an admission here, I have two addictions.  The first, is an addiction to coffee.  The second, as if you didn’t already know, is an addiction to historical research.  There are worse addictions to be [...]

A matter of perspective

 Some days it seems  that Larry gets  all the attention. Sigh.

O say can you sing

Today is Bastille Day.  I was reminded of this because one of my friends sent me this link to Youtube.  I’ve added a link at the end of this post. Many of my friends deeply believe in the national motto of France – “Liberte, egalite, fraternite/ Liberty, equality, fraternity”.  These friends are diverse enough that [...]

Our very own Larry and mantle

Our very own Larry and mantle

It’s raining outside.  Not only do we know this from the sound of raindrops – fats ones, I’m guessing – hitting the ground. Larry brought us proof on his fur. He is drying off now.  We may go about our business.

Even on a hot day

Even on a hot day

It’s parade planning time so I found myself at City Hall yesterday.  It was hot, hot, hot, but the skies were clear. The light on the cupola gives a sense of the heat. Even in the heat of the day Pasadena City Hall radiated in her own distinct manner.

In the Good Ol’ Summer Time

In the Good Ol’ Summer Time

In the midst of summer mulching and dusty dirt digging  I need to remember   and  before I succumb to Larry’s lead.

Between gardens and yard work

Just poking up my head for a moment.   Here’s a before picture.  The after pictures will be posted next week. We’re trying to catch up and maybe get ahead of our plants.  A dear friend shared that there is a difference between yard work and gardening.  She loves to garden.  We are in the [...]

Music abounding

To say I was absorbed in my prep for my talk is a little like saying Jello can be jiggly.  It was great to share the talk and being a Reader at the Huntington allows me access to great resources.  But there is so much going in Pasadena it’s hard not to transition from the [...]

Pasadena General Plan Update

Pasadena General Plan Update

Okay, I’ve just broken all sorts of rules.  Very, very unsexy title for this topic.   But like brushing your teeth, if you don’t attend to the task, things begin to fall apart.    I’m hoping that you’ll find the information and the colors on the page a little intriguing. Beyond being colorful they respresent [...]
