All Smiles

Some of our City Council members had a long night on Monday. Not only did they have a Council meeting that lasted until past midnight, but it was preceded by the swearing in of Pasadena’s new Chief of Police, Phillip L. Sanchez. I have a feeling they preferred the earlier event. I won’t go over [...]

Be You

Be You

When you do that, there’s no competition. Happy birthday to my wonderful father-in-law, Sandy. And happy Fete Nationale to mes amies Francais.(I apologize for Blogger’s undiplomatic behavior. It refuses to allow me a circonflexe or a cedille.) Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

The City Council Meeting Was…

The City Council Meeting Was…

…mixed. The Council was divided on some things, although thankfully they all saw the wisdom of not building a soccer field in a lake. The other Hahamongna soccer field, however, may still go forward even though not one single person advocated for it at the meeting. I could write miles and miles of compelling arguments [...]

Zen Monday: #103

Zen Monday: #103

Once again it’s Zen Monday, the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no competition, no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless [...]

An Ocean

An Ocean

When I moved to Hollywood I imagined life in the fast lane: you know, I’d be a movie star and date incredibly rich men. I’d live in Beverly Hills where my neighbors would be as fabulous as I was. When I wasn’t working on my next Oscar-winning film I’d summer on exclusive islands in the [...]

Plate 38

Plate 38

I’m not one to stand in line for the opening of a movie. I won’t camp out to be the first to buy the latest product from Apple. I figure if these things are any good, they’ll be around for a while and I can take advantage of them when sanity sets in and the [...]

The Bridge is Back

The Bridge is Back

The Colorado Street Bridge party is back! Do I recall we didn’t have it last year? Sure enough. The 2009 event was canceled due to budget cuts. Well, hallelujah! It’s back. Food, music, food, people, fun for kids and more food all begin at 6pm on Saturday night–that’s tomorrow, July 10th. Sponsored by Pasadena Heritage, [...]

Thank You

Thank You

As Bellis said, it was “like Christmas.” Thank you, Barbara Ellis (aka Bellis), Karin Bugge (aka Altadena Hiker) and Michael Coppess (aka East of Allen) for helping create a terrific groundswell yesterday, a blogging extravaganza to express our communal desire to keep soccer fields out of Hahamongna Watershed Park. And thank you, Pasadena/Altadena blogging community, [...]

Hahamongna Blog Day

Hahamongna Blog Day

Counselors from Tom Sawyer Camp set up a learning center on the shore of a natural lake at Hahamongna Watershed Park (click to enlarge). This Monday, July 12th, Pasadena’s City Council will discuss and probably decide once and for all whether or not to build soccer fields in Hahamongna Watershed Park. One field is planned [...]

John and I are a little in love with the light in our house, especially at the day’s extremes. Sometimes, around sunset, I’ll catch him standing still, head cocked as though he’s listening for something. But I know better. He’s just watching the light working its magic. I do the same thing. If you peeked [...]
