Free Training for Kids

Former St. Louis Rams running back and Super Bowl XXXIV Champion Justin Watson says playing in Super Bowl XXXIV in 1999 was “surreal” and “equates the feeling of playing such a close and significant game with constantly holding your breath in anticipation of the outcome.” The Rams beat the Tennessee Titans 23-16, though it came down to [...]

City Hall Historic Photos

City Hall Historic Photos

I think this must have been shot from the top of All Saints. That’s the St. Andrew’s Church tower in the background, mid-right. I’m not sure what the church is on the far right. Maybe Pasadena Congregational at the southeast corner of Los Robles and Walnut? Anybody have a better guess? No hard hats, no [...]

Helping Families of Granite Mt. Hotshots

Helping Families of Granite Mt. Hotshots

What does it take to join up to be a hotshot? Immense amounts of courage. Daring, boldness, and valor. What drives these men to sign up for a particularly dangerous career?  A personal code, moral or otherwise? A sense of chivalry and responsibility? Is it for the adrenalin rush?

Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

Equal parts harrowing and hilarious, Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple, concerns the disappearance of a semi-dysfunctional mother (aren’t we all?) as told through the eyes of her super-smart eighth grade daughter, Bee. Bernadette is as smart as her daughter, but considerably more acerbic and decidedly misanthropic. It turns out she has been on the [...]
