Delilah Meets Her Match

Delilah Meets Her Match

Been awhile, but Delilah is just over five months old. She was 8.6 pounds the day we brought her home and is weighing in at 36 pounds today.  She still has an astonishing amount of energy — happily walking many miles a day, and then making her route in circles around the yard at breakneck [...]

Kitchen Gardens for Everyone

Kitchen Gardens for Everyone

Some call them Victory Gardens, but we prefer the term “kitchen garden.” Whatever they’re called, everyone suddenly wants one, including Michelle Obama. The Obamas will have a professional team and a serious budget to create their kitchen garden, but we San Gabriel Valleyites have one thing they don’t have: A near-perfect growing climate. Although there [...]

Explosion in Pasadena

Explosion in Pasadena

It’s Monday afternoon, March 16th, and if you’re hearing the helicopters and seeing the traffic in southwest Pasadena (we’re watching it all out our office window), it’s because there was an explosion at Californian Linen (the former Dy-Dee Diaper) on California at Raymond. Three men are reportedly seriously injured and are at Huntington. If you’re [...]

County Spraying Pesticides in the Arroyo

County Spraying Pesticides in the Arroyo

Every Wednesday morning a group of friends and I meet in the Lower Arroyo parking lot (by the Casting Pond) for a dog walk. Many of us also walk there regularly on our own. If you’ve spent any time in the Arroyo in recent years, you don’t need to be told why we love it, more [...]

Pasadena Turns Out in Force for Sue Campoy

Pasadena Turns Out in Force for Sue Campoy

“With good friends and good food on the board, and good wine in the pitcher, we may well ask when shall we live if not now?” — M.F.K. Fisher, as quoted in the memorial program for Susan Barbara Jolly Campoy  If ever there was a testimonial for why many of us choose in live and/or [...]

Some Posts for Pasadena

Some Posts for Pasadena

No time to post much today — we’re spending the day paying our respects to Sue Campoy, whose memorial service is at Holy Family Church in South Pasadena. But here are a few things worth checking out: • It’s election day in Pasadena, and three city council seats are up for grabs. Don’t forget to [...]

Susan Campoy Passes On

Susan Campoy Passes On

I just posted this on Eat-la.com, and for obvious reasons it bears running on Hometown-Pasadena.com, too: I am sorrowed to report the death of Sue Campoy, the founder and chef at Julienne. I’ve been working with Sue these last several months to help her write her upcoming cookbook, Celebrating with Julienne, which was produced and designed by [...]

Mt. Waterman Lives!

Mt. Waterman Lives!

Our friends Steve Ellison and Sue Smrekar have been sending reports and photos from Pasadena’s own backyard mountain, Waterman, which is back in action this season after being shut down for a few years. It’s open only on weekends, but so far it hasn’t been crowded at all, and the snow’s been fantastic, as evidenced [...]
