As you may have already guessed, I love a bright red Mohawk. Maybe it’s because I never had the nerve to rock such a radical look. I barely dipped my toes into punk — when I was 15 and wore a trash bag and black lipstick to a Devo concert. That was 30 years ago, […]

Ellen’s Silkscreening

Ellen’s Silkscreening

By day, you can’t beat Ellen’s for silkscreening, embroidery and promotional gear. (Just ask Occidental College, the Getty Museum, the Huntington Library, the Rose Bowl, the Armory, Art Center, Cal Tech, Trader Joes and the Norton Simon Museum — they’re all clients.) Ellen’s has been a San Gabriel Valley favorite since 1978, with an in-house […]

I don’t know which I like most: the big red door, or the little black awning. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena

A Many Splendored Thing

A Many Splendored Thing

Even the rooftop of Wild Thyme has been struck by Cupid’s arrow! It’s a good thing. As I’ve said before, I love Valentine’s Day. My husband proposed to me on Valentine’s Day, so I’m particularly sentimental. I love every hokey, over-the-top, shameless bit of it. (And the chocolates aren’t bad, either.) I know, you don’t […]

Newsworthy

Newsworthy

Since moving to South Pasadena two years ago I’ve marveled at how much living here is like being in a Frank Capra movie. The small-town friendliness, the community spirit, the sense of fairness and consideration permeating everything from the business we conduct to the celebrations we share — it all adds up to something right […]

Ceteris Paribus…

Ceteris Paribus…

Mark Zandi, the oft-quoted chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, recently proclaimed to CBS News that “The Great Recession is Over!” This immediately brought two questions to my mind: 1) Is he sure the rest of the country got the same memo? And… 2) When did we start calling it the Great Recession? Whatever you call […]

Wish You Were Here

After each winter storm roars through, South Pasadena wakes up to a snow-capped morning. And suddenly, every picture becomes a postcard. Read the Full Story at Glimpses of South Pasadena
