Taking a trip

Taking a trip

The 1960s was a time of war, domestic strife, civil rights, trips to the moon and trips on acid. Inspired by Timothy Leary and his belief in LSD as way to understanding, the “Brotherhood of Eternal Love” (also known as the “hippie mafia”) set out to spread love—and drugs—throughout the world. In his book Orange […]

The Six

The Six

WHY Because there’s nothing like a comfortable neighborhood spot for a beer and weeknight dinner with family and friends. The Six, with its entertaining concept — six choices in each menu category (appetizers, sides, entrees, etc.), six rotating brews on tap and six wines by the glass —  fills a gaping need in the Overland-Pico neighborhood, […]

Wood & Bones: Chronicle of a Cottage, Part 4

Wood & Bones: Chronicle of a Cottage, Part 4

About a week before closing, we were getting hit with heavy rain. The Realtor called me with the combination to the key box so we could open the house, look for leaks, and attempt any repairs that would prevent the already-bad condition from getting worse.

The Rose City Plays Chicago: A Look Back at The Sting

The Rose City Plays Chicago: A Look Back at The Sting

Watch the classic 1973 film The Sting and if you’re from Pasadena, you will probably see some oddly familiar locations. That’s because while it takes place in Chicago and Joliet, Illinois, much of George Roy Hill’s film was shot in Old Town Pasadena. Set in 1936, the film centers around an elaborate confidence game orchestrated by […]

Zen Monday: #89

Zen Monday: #89

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something […]

Like the Wind

Like the Wind

Cyclists, vintage car enthusiasts (and photographers) aren’t the only ones who meander down the winding stretch of road along the Arroyo. Here, runners make the most of warm spring weather — and cast three lovely shadows in the late afternoon light. Looks like the tree wants to join in. Read the Full Story at Glimpses […]

The Forest is listening …

The Forest is listening …

… or at least the US Forest Service.  About 20 residents showed up at the Community Center for Saturday's listening session with the U.S. Forest Service on making plans for the future of the Cobb Estate.  District Ranger Michael McIntyre, above, listened to the often-passionate views of people who hike the popular area.  A site […]
