Trike Squadron

Trike Squadron

We’ve learned they’re called “recumbent tadpole bicycles.” Thank you, Trike Asylum. Of course, this name doesn’t make me think any less that this is a sport for chillin’ aquatic larvae that are systematically going insane, but that seems not to be the truth and we don’t want to promulgate alternative facts. Not only is a Trike […]

Strolling the Campus

Strolling the Campus

After we roamed, bedazzled by the ceramics at the Scripps College 73rd Ceramic Annual exhibit—and even though we were somewhat oversaturated and overstimulated by the sumptuous art work—we decided to take a stroll… One of our first sites was this memorial to Harriett Tubman, with a note tucked in her arm. It reads, “What makes her heroic?”     […]

Bee-Luther-Hatchee

Bee-Luther-Hatchee

Who has the right to a life’s story—the person who lived it, or the people who were touched by it? This is the central unanswerable question behind Bee-Luther-Hatchee, a play by Thomas Gibbons…. Intelligent and unsettling, Bee-Luther-Hatchee pulls off a nearly impossible trick: creating a situation in which two people, at a complete bypass, are both right and […]

Word/Play

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 […]
