The Treasures on Your Block

The Treasures on Your Block

In Pasadena, if you have an organized block with a Neighborhood Watch, you can arrange with the police department to block off your street for your block party. (Check with the Pasadena PD for details.) Children do not tire of riding their bikes in the road. No bouncy house necessary. That’s what we did yesterday […]

Tight Life

Tight Life

I rarely post night shots–not because I don’t like them, but because I don’t get out much. Time for a change. I don’t know about you, but lately I’m tight-fisted with my time and my money. These days we’re all working hard and not taking much time off. Even then we don’t spend much. I […]

Why Don’t They Have to Pick Up the Horse Poo?

Why Don’t They Have to Pick Up the Horse Poo?

The other day I posted a photo of Boz at a Hollywood cafe, contemplating a pair of LA’s mounted police. In comments, Laura mentioned the volunteer mounted patrol that assists the mountain rescue unit in Altadena, adding that there was once a mounted patrol in Old Town Pasadena, too. Old Town gets so crowded now; […]

Pic of a Twit

Pic of a Twit

When I was a kid, my nickname was Tweeter. Please don’t laugh, but yesterday I finally figured out how to upload a photo to Twitter using Twitpic. The first time I looked at Twitpic I must have been distracted or upside-down or sleep-walking, because it’s about as easy as an application can be. Yesterday I […]

New Tricks

New Tricks

With summer officially here, it got officially hot yesterday. I have no official complaints. You may wish to brush up on local water use regulations. Pasadena’s water shortage has been declared officially over (yay!), but certain instances of water waste are still out of line, baby! Sprinklers are for running through, but not between 9am […]

Bulgarini

Bulgarini

They don’t spend money on fancy bowls and utensils. And you’ll see when you arrive at the Altadena strip mall they call home that they haven’t splurged on rent. Bulgarini Gelato Artigianale puts everything into the flavor. Seriously. (Quite seriously.) I suggest you browse the website. That’s where I learned that Leo Bulgarini, a native […]

Zen Monday: #151

Zen Monday: #151

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. I took today’s Zen Monday photo in Hollywood. Okay, so I’m cheating. At least I’m an honest cheat. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Blackberries

Blackberries

A friend posted on Facebook about picking apricots with his dad. It reminded me of the hot summer days of my Illinois childhood, when blackberries were in season. My dad would give us each a bucket or basket and load us into the station wagon, and we’d head along the country roads outside of town. […]

La Bodeguita

La Bodeguita

La Bodeguita restaurant and mini-market squats at the corner of Summit Avenue and Hammond Street. I was in a bit of a hurry when I drove by the other day, but this photo was not to be resisted. I didn’t take the time to go inside. I found this post about la Bodeguita on Chowhound […]

Camelot & Grind

Camelot & Grind

Who remembers the Coffee Shop Quest? Anybody? Awhile back I was on a quest to find my ideal coffee shop. I wanted a place where the music was either non-existent or very much in the background, where the chairs were comfy and the tables were the right height for typing on a laptop, where nobody […]
