Theme Day: Under Construction

Theme Day: Under Construction

A few years ago, the eyesore at the corner of Washington and El Molino was a problem liquor store that plagued the neighborhood. This photo is almost exactly two years old. Now, thanks to Joel Bryant and Trademark Development Group, it’s about to become the Classics at Washington Park, a group of eight craftsman-inspired townhomes. […]

Altadena Urban Farmers Market

Altadena Urban Farmers Market

If the photo looks a bit homey it’s because the Altadena Urban Farmers Market takes place at someone’s house. Granted, it’s a big house, but it is indeed private property. If you’re local you’re likely familiar with the Zane Grey Estate, owned by Steven Rudicel and Gloria Putnam, a young Altadena couple. I can’t claim […]

Zen Monday: #148

Zen Monday: #148

I know it’s a holiday but it’s also Monday. I wouldn’t leave you hanging without your Zen. Is this your first Zen Monday at PDP? Here’s the deal: today’s the day I don’t give you my interpretation of the photo. Instead, you give me yours. There’s no winner, no prize (although I admit folks get […]

Sermon on the Mountain

Sermon on the Mountain

St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment. (He was pronounced a saint in July of 1228. Do you suppose they used the word “environment” then?) He was many other things as well; interesting guy. It’s a refreshing surprise to come across such works in our ramblings. It makes me feel privileged […]

Summer

Favorite Place in Glendale

Favorite Place in Glendale

My Burbank friend and I have finally found the perfect middle ground: Favorite Place (that’s its name) in Glendale. I’m not a foodie. I’m not a restaurant reviewer. I can’t describe the delicate blabbedy blah on the palate or the minglings of fine spices in the this and the that. What I can tell you […]

Seriously, Though

Seriously, Though

It’s safe to say that every moment in one’s life is the result of all previous moments, but some moments are more culminating than others. Every once in a while there’s the rare instance that requires you to stop and remember what brought you there. It’s a gratitude moment. It’s standing at the end of […]

Guest Post: Dianne Emley and "Love Kills"

Guest Post: Dianne Emley and "Love Kills"

Today we welcome guest author Dianne Emley, best-selling crime novelist. Her Nan Vining “thrillogy” is set in Pasadena and features a female Pasadena Police Detective. Dianne was the first author I interviewed for PDP and she’s been a friend of the blog ever since. I always wondered how she researched the books and today we […]

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion

A Stubbornly Persistent Illusion

I’ve always had a desire to travel back in time. I’ve even written a novel about it called Camelot & Vine which, fingers crossed, is about to embark on its journey to get published. (I’ll keep you up-to-date.) I’m not the only one with this desire. We want to go back and take a look–safely, […]

Zen Monday: #147

Zen Monday: #147

Here’s your Monday Zen, a chance to give us your thoughts on the photo without me telling you what I think it’s about. There’s no right or wrong, no secret, no prize. Just tell us what the picture makes you think or feel. Have fun and enjoy the other comments, as I do every Monday. […]
