Our Own Festival of Lights

Our Own Festival of Lights

We love lights. Any kind of lights: July 4th fireworks; firelight (indoors or out, fireplace or campfire); moonlight; sunlight (that’s a big one); the lights we hope to see one day, like the Aurora Borealis. And then there are Christmas lights. Walking our neighborhoods on Boxing Day, a sliver of a moon rises in the […]

Missing dogs: Truman still out, Maddie may be dognapped [UPDATE: Maddie’s home]

Truman, one of our still-missing dogs, is still missing, but we have a picture now and some description from his owners: TRUMAN is a 7 month old pitbull.

Boxing Day 2011

Boxing Day 2011

Happy Boxing Day or we could call it Unbagging Day in NW Pasadena. It’s a great stretch, but the two could be seen as being related. Near as I can tell the origins of Boxing Day had to do with the upper classes giving tokens of appreciation to those of the lower classes. “Good King […]

Merriment

Merriment

That’s me in the foyer of Pasadena City Hall, reflected in an ornament on the city’s official Christmas tree. John and I have each other, our home, work we love and a host of friends and neighbors we’re grateful for. Boz is healing. All is well. Happy holidays to you from the entire staff at […]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Entries will be light or nonexistent today, as we celebrate the nativity of the Lord with our family (we celebrate Christmas without apology in our household).
