Four Stars, To Be Exact

Four Stars, To Be Exact

I learned from the 1/17/11 issue of Wired Women, Monica Hubbard’s packed-with-Pasadena e-newsletter, that the Pasadena Public Library earned a four star rating from the The Library Journal “for providing exceptional response to patrons and superior customer service.” The Library Journal, a trade publication for libraries (as opposed to, say, itinerant rodeo riders), was founded [...]

Lights, Camera…

Lights, Camera…

When John came home and told me he’d seen inside our sewers, I had to go look. Woohoo! The Advanced Sewer Technology truck had appeared on our street like the Wells Fargo Wagon, spreading excitement, joy and sewer video. Hey, this stuff doesn’t happen every day. The monitor in the upper left of the photo [...]

Civitates Orbis Terrarum “I’m one of those people who get dizzy just being in a bookshop, so you can imagine what these rare books did to me.” Thus spake Barbara Ellis, aka Bellis, about how it felt to assist the head of Caltech’s Archives and Special Collections in putting together an exhibit of rare maps [...]

Zen Monday: #129

Zen Monday: #129

It’s Zen Monday again, can you believe it? This is the day you tell us what the photo’s about, rather than me telling you. The reason we call it “zen” is loosely (very, very loosely) based on the zen idea of teaching through experience rather than telling–you know, lectures, taking notes, reading books. So, please [...]

Lose Somebody?

Lose Somebody?

We interrupt this post to bring you today’s stray dog report. This little guy followed Boz home but ran away when I tried to lure him into the yard with treats. We saw him again when we walked in a different part of the neighborhood. This time, with Boz as a lure, a couple of [...]

Sugar Water

I love the pergola and whatever’s growing on it. It’s a nice way to shade a porch. I didn’t think I’d like the lion but he grows on me. Not crazy about the other statue, but that’s a personal choice. The bougainvillea is gorgeous. I have two of them that look like weeds. Occasionally they [...]

Home Shopping: To the Rescue

Home Shopping: To the Rescue

John saw an article in the Pasadena Star-News about an unincorporated area of Pasadena called Michillinda Park. A group of neighbors there is trying to save a vintage Craftsman house. We decided to drive over and have a look. Michillinda Park is a lovely, historic neighborhood where peacocks graze on the median. Too bad it’s [...]

Moving On

Moving On

At a memorial service yesterday I saw a lot of people with whom I once worked. It’s appropriate for the photo to be a little fuzzy, as I discovered my memory to be. “Remember the time we all…?” Not really. “You were there when so and so…” Was I? It was nice to see them, [...]

Chris Cleave

Chris Cleave

I was at Vroman’s last night, obviously. I might not have gone had my brother not asked me to get a book signed for him. He likes this author, Chris Cleave. I hadn’t heard of Cleave but I like my brother and plan B involved doing nothing, so I went. Chris has two books out [...]
