Thursdays in Old Town

Thursdays in Old Town

One week from today it’ll be September. It will also be Thursday. These are two good things because Old Pasadena Locals Only Thursdays are back. The program must have been a success last year because it’s been extended to two months this year. On Thursdays during September and October, Old Pasadena merchants will offer discounts […]

I’ve Got Your Pasadena Weekend

I’ve Got Your Pasadena Weekend

I know it’s only Tuesday but calendars fill up. Listen, don’t worry about it. I have your weekend planned for you. Friday the 26th: Wine tasting and silent auction benefiting the Be The Match Foundation, the national bone marrow registry. They’ll be tasting wines from some of California’s top vineyards. There will also be a […]

Zen Monday: #159

Zen Monday: #159

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and tells us what you’ve learned, rather than me lecturing you about it. In Zen, one learns through experience rather than books or lectures. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good book. It’s just that Monday is the day you write it. Read the Full […]

Sunday Steps

Sunday Steps

We’ve been having cool, cloudy mornings and warm afternoons. If you’re one of those people who complains about hot weather, all you have to do these days is get up early. And not like 6am. You can get up at 10:00 and still get in a good hike before it heats up. I wonder how […]

Whoosh

Whoosh

I was trying to make a “whoosh” with the camera, and I got this instead. It’s more of a “whu-uhp!…phhh.” I’m fine with that. Often, when I set out to create something, I have to let go of the outcome. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Pomegranate

Pomegranate

Wikipedia says pomegranate trees were introduced to California by the Spanish in 1769, to be exact. Someone must have kept a record of it. Wikipedia’s article doesn’t mention how long it took them (the pomegranates) to reach Pasadena. Our neighborhood pomegranates will be ready to eat in December or thereabouts. Tell that to this bug.

Victorian Pile

Victorian Pile

Someone once asked me for a photo of a Victorian mansion, as opposed to the usual Pasadena Craftsman. A “Victorian pile,” I think she said. Pasadena has them, but the fanciest ones are behind fences and foliage, hard to photograph without trespassing or at least being downright rude. But wait. How many times have I […]

Tool Talk

Tool Talk

I have a red wheelbarrow. I like it a lot. I don’t need a blue wheelbarrow but if I did I’d go to Altadena Hardware, because last time I was there they had a pile of wheelbarrows. I love hardware stores and we have many excellent ones in the Dena. Besides Altadena Hardware there’s Crown […]

In Zen, the emphasis is on learning through experience as opposed to books or lectures. Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and tells us what you’ve learned, rather than me lecturing you about it. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good book. It just happens that Monday is the day you […]
