Not Everyone Watches Football

Not Everyone Watches Football

Everyone has stocked up and gone indoors. They have their wide screen TVs, their sofas, their chips and salsa, their chicken wings, cole slaw, sandwiches and noisemakers, and enough beer to last a dozen people all day. Everything else is all yours. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

My Walk With Tommy

My Walk With Tommy

The famous Tommy, of My Life With Tommy, had an opportunity to check out Hahamongna Watershed Park the other day. He gave it countless stamps of approval (the solid ones responsibly removed by Tommy’s human, Susan). When the rain came after the Station Fire in late 2009, water rushed off the mountains bringing with it [...]

Pearls Before Whine

Pearls Before Whine

It’s been chilly here for a few days, so I wanted to post a photo that would remind me of summer. I like our hot, languid days. Not everyone does. My Chicago friends are freezing right now (30 below!) and I’m not going to gloat. The night before last, Lake Shore Drive was closed down, [...]

Notes on the Sam Merrill Trail

Notes on the Sam Merrill Trail

We’ve had cool weather for a few days and the sky is clear. I took this shot from about a mile and a half up the Sam Merrill trail, looking out from alongside one of the electric towers toward Century City and Santa Monica. That glow you see is the sun setting over the Pacific [...]

Petrea’s Kitchen Tips: Blueberries

Petrea’s Kitchen Tips: Blueberries

Friends are coming for breakfast today. Isn’t that grand, in the middle of the week? Each of us is grabbing an hour or so out of a busy schedule to indulge in coffee and talk. I’ll lay off the caffeine so the laughing won’t be too strident. Because people will bring things to eat and [...]

Theme Day: Fountains

Theme Day: Fountains

The first of the month is theme day, and we’ve got a good one: fountains. There are many interesting fountains in the Pasadena area. This one’s at El Molino Viejo in San Marino. I was taking pictures for an article for South Pasadena Patch without a thought for the blog. But when the boy ran [...]

Bobcats in the Back Yard

Bobcats in the Back Yard

A who’s who of LA County environmentalists showed up at Eaton Canyon Nature Center yesterday morning to make plans–for Hahamongna and for the future. As can be expected from a first meeting of many minds, it was inconclusive. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works plans to clear fifty acres of sediment from behind [...]

There’s No School Like an Old School

There’s No School Like an Old School

The signs in front of this building limit parking to fifteen minutes. I couldn’t imagine why anyone would want to stay there that long. Might make a good movie set. Chase scene? Drug deal? This building houses the southern California campus of the San Francisco Theological Seminary as well as something called North-West College, both [...]

Hilltop Life

Hilltop Life

“Solid life has a capillary connection with the air,” says J. “You can burn it, but it won’t die.” He speaks metaphorically, of course. Plenty of living things died in the Station Fire a year and a half ago. But you can’t defeat life itself. Thus the new growth in the lower part of the [...]
