Ever wish you could literally immerse yourself in art? Well, that’s what I did at last month’s South Pasadena Art Crawl. (See how I turned a goofy photo after a few glasses of wine into a truly highbrow endeavor? I’m good that way.) Carnival Cut-Outs were scattered along the South Pas business district, giving South [...]

If the South Pasadena Downtown Revitalization Project had not gotten hung up in litigation and a bad economy, our little town might have had a bowling alley to ride out summer’s hottest days. Oh well, East Pasadena is an easy drive and that’s where you can find 300 Pasadena. It’s cool not only in terms [...]

Whenever I drive through Monrovia, I can’t help but smile as I think about the hard boiled novelist Raymond Chandler living there with his wife in a sweet little bungalow. (Yes, it’s true.

Sure, it’s pretty, but this daytime moon has nothing on the 2012 Perseid meteor shower. The astronomical event kicked off Friday night but it expected to hit its peak tonight. In fact, NASA says it’s supposed to be “the best meteor shower of the year.” Those NASA scientists aren’t known for hyperbole, so I say [...]

On Heatwaves, Bad News and Butterflies

I could post yet another photo of the flies that are buzzing around my kitchen. I could post a photo of the wilting hydrangeas, the backyard thermometer that tells me it’s 105, or the patch of paint on the west wall of my house that is cracking from the onslaught of blazing August sun. It’s [...]

Daydreaming of Winter

Daydreaming of Winter

Am I the only one who starts fantasizing about cold weather right about now? I don’t mean shovel-the-snow-in-the-driveway, get-out-your-lambskin-gloves East Coast/Midwest cold weather. Please! This is Southern California! I’m just ready for black tights, root vegetable stew, hot toddies, roasted marshmallows, down comforters and, for the love of heaven, no more flies in the house. [...]
