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, […]

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

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 […]

Not That Kind of Passion

Not That Kind of Passion

When I need a break I go for a hike in the hills. But some situations call for drastic measures. When it gets that bad you need a complete departure from civilization. I remember going on church retreats when I was a pre-teen. They were fun, like going to camp. On one retreat I had […]

Old Pasadena Vintage

Old Pasadena Vintage

Peering out from under the awning at the Pasadena Christian Center (yesterday’s post), take a look across the street. There’s a cute, little old building that houses the Old Pasadena Vintage Lighting Company at 2569 Colorado Blvd. The “about us” link on their site doesn’t work but the other links do. They get good reviews […]

Cinematic Church

Cinematic Church

At 2588 East Colorado Blvd., among antique shops, used furniture stores and a cute-looking restaurant or two, you’ll find the Pasadena Christian Center which (obviously) used to be a movie theater. A snoop around the church’s website will tell you about their religious mission and practice. They’ve been in Pasadena in various locations since 1929, […]
