24th Annual Pasadena Chalk Festival

Over 600 artists take to chalk to create over 200 chalk festivals at the annual Pasadena Chalk Festival. The art of street painting is centuries old. In fact, it goes back to the 16th century when soldiers returning from battle gave homage to the Madonna in front of local churches. Consequently, the name Madonnari or […]

2016 Art on Palm

2016 Art on Palm

One of the art events we love to attend is the biannual Art on Palm held down the hill in a secluded nook called Wildwood Park. It’s small, intimate, and full of arts and crafts from painters, tile makers, and ceramicists to jewelers, weavers, and clothing designers. It’s hard to choose what humorous tile we […]

Right to Bear Arms vs. Right to Life

  While perusing Facebook on Saturday, I read an article about the young singer from The Voice who was shot by a deranged man while signing autographs after a performance. In the 24 hours after that shooting, seven random people were shot and killed in unrelated events in LA. I read about that on Sunday morning […]

Omega-3 Garlic Barramundi with Mushrooms & Wild Rice

Omega-3 Garlic Barramundi with Mushrooms & Wild Rice

Traditional Western cooking techniques like grilling and roasting set off a chemical reaction in food that releases advanced glycation end products or AGEs. When ingested, AGEs damage collagen. They literally age our skin! The good news is there are simple tricks that can be used to reduce AGE formation, and they’re found in my Omega-3 […]

In Case of Emergency

In Case of Emergency

For the past nine years, Chalk Repertory Theatre has been creating some pretty unusual theater in the Los Angeles area. On Saturday night, I witnessed their latest production, In Case of Emergency. The play takes place in the garage of a young lady tormented by fears of disaster, so the venue for the play was, […]
