Ventanas Window

Ventanas Window

I’m a lightweight. I didn’t used to be. I think I need to get out more often. Ventanas Restaurant and Bar at the Westin is a quiet spot for a weeknight martini. A little off the beaten track (aka Colorado Blvd.), which is sometimes exactly what you need. Or exactly what I need. For me [...]

Last Night, Fountain, City Hall

Last Night, Fountain, City Hall

I’ve said it so many times I sound like a broken record: you can’t take an ugly picture at Pasadena City Hall. You can take a blurry picture there or an amateurish one, or one that’s poorly framed. But no matter what you do it won’t be ugly because City Hall has no bad angles. [...]

Whispering the Good News

Whispering the Good News

Another TV crew shooting in Altadena? Oh yawn. I spotted the Ghost Whisperer crew again. This time they were shooting at the Mountain View Mausoleum on Marengo Avenue across from the Mountain View Cemetery. It’s not really a yawn. I’ve been in the LA area twenty years and I still get excited when I see [...]

Make Lemonade

Make Lemonade

I’m a fortunate person because the other day, a lemonade stand popped up on my street. When it’s almost a hundred degrees out, that’s what you do. I happened to be thirsty. I also happened to have 25 cents. That bought me a glass of cold lemonade, time with my neighbors and some good memories. [...]

Zen Birthday: #50

Zen Birthday: #50

Last week was a special Zen Monday for lovers of the Space Program and adventurous hearts throughout the world. This week is a special Zen Monday for my love and the light of my life. Zen Monday is (usually) the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you [...]

Morning Doves

Morning Doves

Someone who came before us attached a birdhouse to a post supporting the roof over our back porch. This photo is oddly framed because Ms. Mourning Dove doesn’t want me near her. She’d fly out of the nest if she could, but she’s got eggs and doesn’t dare leave them. I took the picture from [...]

Mind if I ask, who does your landscaping?

Mind if I ask, who does your landscaping?

Boz tried to chat up a rattlesnake on our evening walk yesterday. I wanted a photo, but cooler heads prevailed and the snake refused to pose. So I thought I’d show you a photo of his yard. The law says I can take a picture of your yard as long as I take that picture [...]

Free to Believe in Green

Free to Believe in Green

I have always had the freedom to think what I please and say what I think. Sure, we have conventions. If I’m rude I may be chastised or lose a few friends. But the law protects my freedom of speech. For those like me who love to share opinions and feelings, the internet is a [...]

Crisis Control

Crisis Control

This has been a week of crises worldwide and on the home front. The latter culminated with a trip to the Animal Emergency Clinic last night, where Kumba the cat is in charge. I won’t go into detail. I’ll just tell you that our beloved Boz is currently in his bed, licking his underbeneath parts [...]

Green Balloon Friday for Iran

Green Balloon Friday for Iran

The Iranian protests touch me through blogging. That is, I’ve become friends with Iranian bloggers who have been threatened and whose blogs have been censored in recent days. This tells me how easily an issue becomes personal if I can only put a face on it–if I meet a person who is part of it. [...]
