Found: two cocker spaniels,

Reader Kathleen writes us: I found two dogs running loose Monday afternoon, Nov 29, on Woodbury Road between Lake & Mar Vista.  Though I don't have a photo I hope you can publicize that I have them, as I have not had a response from leaving a phone message.   The dogs are male cocker spaniels & they […]

Food borne illness: $152 billion; a bill to fix it all: $300 billion; petty bickering in the Senate to pass the bill: priceless

It passed through the U.S. House of Representatives with bipartisan support, but the FDA Food Safety Modernization bill ended up being stuck in the Senate for over a year before finally passing this morning. The bill gives the Food and Drug Administration the power to conduct wide tests for contamination and recall food that does […]

WHY For a robustly flavorful, modestly priced salad-and-pizza meal after an Arclight movie. And if you live or work around here, they deliver! WHAT This noisy, cheerful café has something for everyone-breakfast burritos, panini, chopped salads, vegan lentil soup, a kids’ menu-but we’re most partial to the rectangular pizzas. A fun spot for a casual […]

It may be cold outside for Southern California, but it’s still pretty nice to hang out in the sunshine at one of our parks. And, hey, while we’re on the subject of hanging out at local parks… check out my latest column at South Pasadena Patch. (It will be posted around 8:00AM, PST.) Read the […]

Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis

A praying mantis is, according to scientists, quite aware when being watched, at least in laboratory conditions. Briefly, I fooled myself. “She’s letting me take her picture,” I thought. Clutching the side of the back step, she posed while I practiced with my macro setting. The leaves behind her are on the ground and I’m […]
