Pat It and Prick It and Mark It

Pat It and Prick It and Mark It

Ugly mural, no? No? Someone thought so, and now Altadena’s Patticakes Dessert Company is having to defend itself–albeit with a legion of fans to support it. Patticakes is a good place to buy baked goods for an event, as well as nice little spot to have a cup of coffee and a piece of cake. […]

I Might be Able to Get You its Fax Number

I Might be Able to Get You its Fax Number

Kevin over at East of West L.A. photographed a courtyard not long ago. (Go! Peruse his noir!) It reminded me of my reaction to Los Angeles upon moving to the area: nostalgia. Yet I hadn’t been here before. The feeling confused me. Why did roaming the city’s streets make me long for — what? home? […]

Zen Monday: #145

Zen Monday: #145

  or It’s a Zen Monday twofer! Today’s the day you experience the photo(s) and tell us what you’ve learned. If you’ve been lurking, I hope today’s the day you’ll jump in. Is this your first Zen Monday? Just say what the pictures make you think of or feel. Usually I post one photo, but […]

Petrea’s Kitchen Tips: Beer

Petrea’s Kitchen Tips: Beer

When I posted my first kitchen tip (about blueberries) I didn’t think there’d be another. I’m not what you’d call a kitchen maven. But behold, I have another tip for you: Don’t leave your non-alcoholic beers in the freezer too long. They blow their tops. I’ve come to this knowledge through years of error and […]

High Strung

High Strung

How does the saying go? “The best laid plans go to hell in a hand basket,” or something like that. You think you know how things are going to go. They don’t. C’est la vie, dammit. A good way of looking at surprise chaos would be to greet it as though it were welcome serendipity. […]

Different Route

Different Route

You might happen to turn your car up Sierra Bonita Avenue looking for a cut-off from Washington Blvd. You might want a different way, a new route. As you’re driving along this residential street you might happen to glance to the side and see a front yard–well, a garden–well, a folly, you might call it–a […]

Parker-Mayberry Bridge

Parker-Mayberry Bridge

The Parker-Mayberry Bridge is a small, graceful bridge under the colossal, graceful and more famous Colorado Street Bridge. The Parker-Mayberry doesn’t have a Wikipedia page, nor do many links point in its direction. Scroll down to the second photo in this post by Pasadena Public Information Officer Ann Erdman to see how the two bridges […]

It happens from time to time that I bring a blank brain with me to the blank screen. As I write, it’s the night before today. I’ve spent what little mental capital I had, sitting in front of a computer all day typing numbers. I don’t have anything left with which to write intelligently, about […]

Zen Monday: #144

Does it seem like Zen Monday comes around faster and faster lately? Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and tell us what you’ve learned. If you’ve been lurking, I hope today’s the day you’ll jump in. Is this your first Zen Monday? Just say what the picture makes you think of or […]

Theme Day: Mailbox

Theme Day: Mailbox

Today’s City Daily Photo theme is “Mailbox,” which can be interpreted in more imaginative ways than I came up with. That’s okay, the homeowners here did the interpreting for me. I love their slightly twisted, “approved by the postmaster general” U.S. mailbox. I wonder what they’re commenting on, exactly. Not that I want to know. […]
