Big brother is back, and this time he’s in your phones and Facebook accounts

Facebook has undergone yet another facelift, but what may not be as obvious as the layout changes are changes to much of the popular social networking site’s privacy settings. Now you may be sharing even more information about your “likes” and various other browsing without really wanting to. What’s more, there have been allegations that […]

Zen Monday: #165

Zen Monday: #165

I took this picture across the street from a library. Here’s a second shot. Let’s say, for clarification: Zen Monday is the day you interpret the photo(s) instead of me telling you what I think it’s about, so please have at it. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Library: "Designing Your Life Part II" next Monday

Next Monday, Allan Wasserman returns to the Altadena Library with "Designing Your Life, Part II." Last June, Wasserman, who juggles careers in business, music, writing, and acting with an Altadena Town Council seat, gave a beginning workshop on how to create the life of your dreams.

The Boy Who Taught Me How to Be a Teacher

Once you get old enough, you start to develop a perspective about how life’s random puzzle pieces have come to connect. Some pieces attach by sheer force, some settle gradually; but there are others whose fit becomes apparent only after the passage of years. I was fortunate enough to be hired as a high school […]

Glimpse Her While You Can

Glimpse Her While You Can

Mystery Object

Mystery Object

It’s the first day of the month, and that means it’s Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. Today’s theme is Mystery Object. Well, I hate to spoil everyone’s fun but I know exactly what this thing is. At least, I have a few ideas… It’s a robot stairclimber. A literal translation of cubism. […]

Theme Day: Mystery Object

Theme Day: Mystery Object

I was all ready to post another library and I remembered: today is City Daily Photo theme day! It’s a good thing I remembered because–well, I don’t know what would happen if I forgot, probably nothing, but it’s too late now.
