Free Mulch ’til Eternity

Free Mulch ’til Eternity

Our street is still lined on both sides with piles of tree branches, although we can see the clean-up approach and it looks like the crews will get to us this weekend if the weather holds. It’s been fun, but I guess it’ll be nice to have street parking again. Few members of the relevant […]

We’re doubling up on guest authors this week! It’s like it’s Christmas or something! Which is convenient, because this book is a good idea for a holiday gift and next week you’ll already have your shopping done, right? Two friends, Brenda Goldstein and Gail Herndon, take us along on their journey to The Spa Less […]

Tomorrow, Friday evening at 6pm, there’s going to be a ceremony at All Saints Church to honor the homeless dead.

Just ten short months ago, Des Zamorano pioneered the Guest Author post here on the old blog with her novel, Human Cargo. Here’s the book cover, to spark your memory: In this mystery, Des’ smart heroine, Inez Leon, is the private eye who tracks down some dangerous types and foils a heinous crime right here […]

Zen Monday: #174

Zen Monday’s the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the picture’s about. There’s no competition, no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun. (Some Zen Mondays are more fun than others.)I look for something worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or […]

Christmas Charisma

Christmas Charisma

Your local Christmas curmudgeon got her veneer cracked the other day. Donna Chaney invited me to a Women’s City Club luncheon, and I don’t like to miss a chance to spend time with a good friend like Donna. Nor do I like to miss a chance to visit the historic Blinn House, the Club’s home […]

I promised to reveal the location of our mystery mansion today. As I said in comments (somewhere in the last two days) it’s smack dab in Pasadena. Smack dab. The address is 386 W. Green Street. You don’t notice it from Green because a plain wall faces the street. There’s a parking lot behind the […]

Whenever we have a free day, John and I like to explore. You start out with a vague plan and it always, always changes. That’s the beauty of it. On Thanksgiving day we discovered a place I had never noticed before. You may have seen it, but in my six years in Pasadena I had […]
