Spring Equinox

Ah, the day that so many love—when night and day are about equal length—the Spring Equinox. Before the Spring Equinox, Earth’s axis is tilting neither away nor towards the sun, but after wards, to the relief and joy of many, our hours of daylight extend.

Here is Hometown Pasadena’s first installment of a book review by a local book club. For this occasion—wonderfully, but atypically—the author of The Big Truck That [...]

Want a New Wardrobe?

Want a New Wardrobe?

This does not fall under the typical “event” that Hometown Pasadena covers, but we thought our readers might be interested—our female readers in particular, or even that significant other who wants to—or needs to—earn brownie points.
