Empty Emissary

Empty Emissary

I was a little shocked the first time I stumbled upon this mansion. A mansion is not something one normally stumbles upon. But there it was hidden in plain sight, invisible from Orange Grove Blvd. and the surrounding streets, yet accessible when I got out of the car and began strolling through the Ambassador Campus [...]

Wear Your Extrovert Genes

Wear Your Extrovert Genes

Did you know the Doo Dah Parade is coming up this Saturday? Did you know it’s in a new location? Do you want to be in it? You could march with the winners of the Thorny Rose Award. The award was given late this year. I just learned that Friends of Hahamongna (I’m a Friend) [...]

Zen Monday: #93

Zen Monday: #93

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. There’s no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

Here’s a photo taken outside Pasadena: an overview of one small section of the gargantuan Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on the UCLA campus. The fun part: going down the Janss steps. The good-for-me part: going up them. Diving into the crowd was the insane part. I went Saturday with my brother and sister-in-law. [...]

Pie ‘N Burger

Pie ‘N Burger

I was strolling down South Lake Avenue the other day when woops! That umbrella I’d left in the car was looking like a brilliant idea I’d forgotten to write down: shoulda coulda woulda. You could say rain is just water. Or you could say it’s a good excuse to go to Pie ‘N Burger. I [...]

At Least I Don’t Have Twelve Toes

At Least I Don’t Have Twelve Toes

I’m willing to spend a little on shoes because if I don’t, my feet put up a fuss. (I’ll cut corners in just about any area but this one.) But I’m about to give up. I’ve been looking and walking and shopping and walking and walking and my dogs are sore! (and I don’t mean [...]

Greening the Earth

Greening the Earth

Can you believe it’s been forty years since the first Earth Day? I suppose if you were born after about 1965, you can. I like the way Pasadena celebrates. With love in our hearts we hail April 22nd as Earth Day, then when Saturday rolls around we celebrate Greening the Earth Day when everyone can [...]

Denim Day

Denim Day

Annual Denim Day in LA celebrates it’s 11th year today. Denim Day was inspired when in Italy in 1992 the Italian Supreme Court overturned a guilty verdict in a rape case. One judge stated that the middle-aged man in the case couldn’t have raped the young girl “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, [...]

Skyline News

Skyline News

A chance of rain tonight, they say. Lovely, lovely rain. That rain comes with a “cold upper level low pressure system.” For two days. Snow in the grapevine,* maybe. In April. In southern California. You know, where we live in this here hot, desert climate. Bundle up. *“The Grapevine” is local vernacular for the highest [...]

Zen Monday: #92

In a few weeks we’ll celebrate 100 Zen Mondays. What do you think? Shall we have a contest of some sort? A prize? I welcome your suggestions as well as your comments about today’s Zen Monday photo. Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling [...]
