Fortunately, Pasadena has the nicest, newest, biggest float therapy spa anywhere. It’s called Just Float. There’s a protocol to follow. The video on the website shows you around the place and […]

Whelmed

Being overwhelmed is not good. It means you’ve got more than you can handle. Yesterday I felt overwhelmed. But I decided it was my attitude so I decreed that my attitude would change. Being underwhelmed is also not good. It means nothing’s good enough. That’s a bad attitude right there. So, I’m whelmed. My Story […]

Since I don’t know a lot about antique vehicles, I enlisted Scott’s help with this post. His additions are in italics. Thank you, Scott!1. […]

Rubel Castle, Michael’s Room

Rubel Castle, Michael’s Room

I almost forgot I promised to tell you more about this triangle shaped, glass bottle wall when I posted a photo of it last week.

Rubel Castle, the Old Parts

Rubel Castle, the Old Parts

The oldest buildings on the Rubel Castle property are the packing buildings, used when this area was orange groves. This one was kind of a bachelor pad for a friend.
