Word/Play

No one tells MUSE/IQUE to sit in the corner and be quiet… From Stephen Sondheim to Bob Dylan and Carole King, from Cole Porter to Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda—sometimes lyricists are so brilliant that their work becomes the word. In a local temple of literacy, MUSE/IQUE brings LA’s best musicians and vocalists together to explore how […]

Music, Martinis & the Maestro

Music, Martinis & the Maestro

In Noor’s Sofia ballroom, 240 guests will sip martinis and enjoy an intimate performance by members of the California Philharmonic Orchestra, followed by an interactive discussion with maestro Victor Vener. Now sipping martinis at 2 p.m. may not be on one’s regularly scheduled Sunday, but if one plans accordingly, it could be a delightful near-end to […]

Nipped by Frost?

Nipped by Frost?

The last several nights have threatened frost, even down here in the mid-lowlands of my garden in the southern section of Pasadena. While the end of January is the average last frost date for our area, I haven’t worried much about it for quite a few years since we haven’t had even a light frost […]

Stunning Ceramics at Scripps

Stunning Ceramics at Scripps

We would like to thank Rosey Bell, realtor with Coldwell Banker, for this lead, which prompted us to undertake a spur-of-the-moment midday trip to see the Scripps College 73rd Ceramic Annual exhibit. From Pasadena to exit 25B in Claremont, it was a quick half hour drive, which provided a constant backdrop of snowcapped mountains defying the open driver’s side window and […]

Ojai Marvels

Ojai Marvels

The lull after Christmas and before the new year was a perfect time to take a jaunt to Ojai. Though we were experiencing almost continuous rain, we managed to snag a few hours between downpours. We arrived in Ojai with an appetite and chose a very cute spot called Knead Baking Company. We partook of a sandwich no bigger than […]

Coconut Cake!

Coconut Cake!

I just finished this book called The Coincidence Of Coconut Cake about a chef and her romance/restaurant dramas. All I could think about while reading it is that I’d love to master a really kick ass coconut cake like she does in the novel. So this started the wheels rolling and I created what I’d […]

Writing Our Future

Writing Our Future

      “Writing Our Future” by Esther Bradley-DeTally December 13, 2016 Tattered nerves on a planet gone flat as in air out of bicycle tire, or thin conversations conveying empty space. Ain’t it awful?  It’s been done before. Nasty Nero and his violin and Caligula, that besotted fool committed unspeakable acts of horror, all […]

Biking in the San Gabriel Mountains

Biking in the San Gabriel Mountains

I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes our family adventures can be a little bit extreme for the average family looking to get outside for the day. Ocean kayaking, searching for sea caves, driving three hours into the blazing hot desert or camping in the mountains with no bathrooms or running water – it’s […]

The Batchelder Registry

The Batchelder Registry

The Pasadena Museum of History is looking for you! And your Batchelder tiles. Do you have a fireplace, fountain, door frame, floor, or even a pool with Batchelder tiles? Have any colorful peacocks, oaks, Mayan heads, medievalized lions, leaping hares, or geometric shapes interpreted by Ernest Batchelder and immortalized in tile? Become a part of the […]
