Garages, 2

Garages, 2

I thought doing a series on garages in Pasadena would be easy. My favorites are the old ones, some going back to the early part of the 20th century. (This does not impress the European readers or those on the east coast, but so be it.) But it’s hard to find a garage without a [...]

Pick One

Pick One

It sure feels like summer’s over. It is over, I guess, with kids back in school. Summer stays late in southern California, but here it is October and I’m lamenting its departure. I’m a glutton that way. It’s been nice, though, to feel the fall chill. Why is fall so nostalgic? I think the word [...]

The Giving Season

The Giving Season

We’ve been enjoying some wet weather. It feels like winter, southern California style, although it’s only a taste. We can expect the heat to be back this weekend, with perhaps more rain next week. Nice. The weather puts me in mind of what’s to come: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and what we like to call The Holidays: [...]

Zen Monday: #115

Zen Monday: #115

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something, I stay out of the comments box until the [...]

Webster’s Fine Networking

Webster’s Fine Networking

Anton Anderson emcees as Lori Webster looks on. Fluorescents be damned, I like the shot anyway. Like a lot of people, I’ve been looking to spruce up my online social networking skills for the sake of my business. I’m okay at blogging, but I’ve got a few things to learn about Facebook and my LinkedIn [...]

Love Tag

Love Tag

I almost posted this photo for yesterday’s “graffiti” theme day. I see this kid-sized blackboard on my walks in the neighborhood. I’ve even featured it before. The messages change, as you can imagine. This time I got permission from the homeowner to come onto the porch and get a close-up. I resisted posting about graffiti [...]

Theme Day: Graffiti

Theme Day: Graffiti

Pasadena’s good at cleaning graffiti when it happens. If you see graffiti and you want it removed, call the Pasadena’s Graffiti Abatement Hotline at 626-744-7622 and the offending tag will be removed within 24 hours. Sounds like a tall order, but so far I’ve seen it work every time. I took this photo two years [...]

Inspired Gardening

Inspired Gardening

I joke that my back yard is a desert. Actually, until recently that wasn’t true. It was a field of weeds. I’ve mentioned I want to plant a tree. I aspire to planting ground cover one day. But a garden, lush with native plants, populated with objets d’art and a shady pergola, that’s–that’s–well, I haven’t [...]

Playhouse Elements

Playhouse Elements

I’m not an insider when it comes to the Pasadena Playhouse or to Elements Kitchen, for that matter. But I’m charmed by the sight of the Elements tables set up for lunch on the Playhouse Plaza on a hazy day. The reviewers gush over the food at Elements Kitchen. (A better word might be “slobber.”) [...]

Compostiltskin

Compostiltskin

Eaton Canyon Nature Center What could get me to a workshop at 9:00 on a Saturday morning when I have an appointment at 11:30, another one at 1:30, another one at 5:00 and another one at 7:00, and somewhere in there I have to make two pies? A $50 compost bin. Last Saturday morning I [...]
