Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns

Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns

It may be late July, soon to be early August, and the temperatures are rising and we’re all a bit grumpy, but get ready to smile. Because who can’t smile when confronted with five thousand—yes, 5,000—jack o’lanterns? We primarily love Halloween because of the carved pumpkin-lit with a candle-glowing in the dark-element (though, yes, the [...]

Whoop & Alley-Oop with the Four Preps

Though the band began with Bruce, Glen, Ed, and Marvin and now consists of Bruce, Bob, Skip, and Michael, The Four Preps still harmonize and comprise a vocal quartet that will erase—momentarily—all images of twerking or the contemporary sounds that some folks of a particular age and era may have a hard time acknowledging as music. The [...]

Debra began baking using techniques gleaned from French and German bakers (and the New York Times). Now, Debra runs a “home-based” bakery in Altadena and delivers fresh loaves to lucky recipients. [...]
