Roundabout Shame

Roundabout Shame

I love Pasadena, I really do. But when I drive down Glenarm or El Molino, I am embarrassed for our city. Who thought up these no-doubt-expensive, half-assed roundabouts? Have these people never traveled to the many places around the world that have roundabouts? Do they not understand the whole point of them — which is [...]

my little pony + my little drunken pony

my little pony + my little drunken pony

Tomorrow is Delilah’s puppy class graduation, but she doesn’t exactly have a trick to perform, unless we frame that biting-pants thing as something special — but instructor Penny Scott-Fox (see Concierge) will be onto us in a flash. I think some of our rivals… oh, I mean classmates…  have got their little pups rolling over [...]

Honoring the Call

Honoring the Call

A national day of service? Linked with Martin Luther King? Even though I didn’t realize it till I started paying attention, that part’s been around since 1994. Thank you, Congress. Now, a big high five to history, for converging upon Obama who calls me personally to service. Well, I wasn’t home, but I heard he [...]

Doo Dah Wrap Up

Doo Dah Wrap Up

As always, the parade was memorable. Since words do no justice, here are a few pictures I took on Sunday. So I think that about sums it up. Anyone have any particular fun stories from the event?

Great Scott, It's a Great Egret!

Great Scott, It's a Great Egret!

This weekend as the TV brought us the (fabulous) Inaugural concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and the Steelers playing in Pittsburgh, I watched people shivering in the bitter cold and reflected on yesterday’s walk in the Arroyo. My friend Bob Goldstein had never walked in the Arroyo before, so Molly the labradoodle [...]
