If I Can’t Grow Anything On It, Maybe I Can Hang It On The Wall

If I Can’t Grow Anything On It, Maybe I Can Hang It On The Wall

I’m trying to kill the lawn in my back yard so I can replace it with drought-tolerant stuff and a vegetable garden. I looked online for information on how to kill the grass and weeds: chemicals. I asked at a couple of nurseries: chemicals. Some people suggested I smother the lawn to death with a [...]

Walkabout

I Heart My Watch Cat

I Heart My Watch Cat

Sure, he looks sweet. Benign, even. But see the sign? Not the heart–that’s a trap. I’m talking about the one that says “Protection One.” That’s this kitty’s middle name and I don’t take these things lightly. He’s a feline chameleon, and don’t think he doesn’t know it. He could hang out on a higher step [...]

Traffic

Traffic

It’s bad enough to have a long day. But when your long day is topped with a bumper-to-bumper commute on what’s laughingly called a “freeway,” it feels like the world has it in for you. I had one of those days yesterday. It wore me out. When I got to the Colorado Street Bridge I [...]

Social Media

Social Media

I finally made it to a meeting of the Social Media Club of San Gabriel Valley. The group meets monthly at the Business Technology Center in Altadena to discuss– –well. I’ve given it away, haven’t I? It’s not like this is the wave of the future anymore. Potential clients, customers or employers no longer ask [...]

Still Life

Still Life

The news says the president has quit smoking. It’s not easy and I congratulate anyone who achieves it. I did it myself once and it was so hard I haven’t so much as taken a single puff since August 31st, 1991, because I never want to have to quit again. I feel sorry for people [...]

True Luv, Written in Cement

True Luv, Written in Cement

We’ve begun a pedestrian theme this week, of shoes and feet. I didn’t know if it would continue or not, but I happened to have this sidewalk shot in my files. I say it counts because sidewalks are for walking. And for lovers, apparently. Do you suppose Chris and Patty are still in true luv, [...]
