Christmas Majesty on St. Albans

Christmas Majesty on St. Albans

This is not a block to be driven. One must park the car and walk the long block of St. Albans Road between Huntington Drive and Monterey in San Marino. Evergreens loom overhead—40 feet, 60 feet, fat and paunchy, lean and towering—all dressed in colored lights. Most of the strands consist of the standard red, [...]

Christmas Greetings from Dr. & Mrs. Adalbert Fenyes

Christmas Greetings from Dr. & Mrs. Adalbert Fenyes

Hearty Christmas Greetings!  However…before I present a selection of Dr. & Mrs. Adalbert Fenyes’ historic holiday greeting cards, I am going to comment on a curious phenomenon.  So often when I mention the names Fenyes, Fenyes Mansion, and Pasadena Museum of History, my listener dons a puzzled expression or gets a strange sleepy look in [...]

No Two Blades of Grass

No Two Blades of Grass

For Ann They say no two blades of grass are alike, but is that true for eggs? See how, once you look awhile, each egg scarcely resembles its twin… There are patterns in the brown, striations in the white, stories in all. Yes, even in that one. Oh, and look how so sweetly the eggs [...]
