rod's is out of the spotlight

This is an important issue, and I haven't heard a peep of it in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. I am thankful to read the posts here. This is just awful. West Covina recently got in trouble for these backdoor deals by a car dealer. This sound quite similar. Sounds like perhaps a Brown Act violation ...

ethnic world & walking in L.A.

I took to the streets and walked around Pasadena City College. Work off the turkey I guess. I got a heck of a lot of scary stares. Maybe if some fellow walkers were abound rather than folks who continuously talked to themselves or 15 years going Hey Beautiful! It would have been much more pleasant. ...

5-0 in favor of modified tombstones

Thanks for the input at the meeting and on-line here. The decision was to make MONUMENTS and MEMORIALS as they called it. Really emphasizing the tombstone effect. They really meant to say a permanent sign with a photo and description. It sounded just ghoulish, but I'll be happy with the photo and de...

Proposal to landmark demolished buildings with tombstones

The City of Glendora will be addressing a recommendation to install what I consider as tombstones for buildings that are no longer there in most cases to remember what was there. For example, the fun variety store Bock's (it has been so long that I might have spelled it wrong.) No longer there and t...

Manhattan - I am here!

Well, on my free day, I went to 2 museums, well, I didn't know that both were closed. The architecture was 80's - Ukrainian Museum and Whitney Museum of American Art. On Friday, I hope to make it to the Four Seasons, and I am still reading for ideas. Thanks for all the contributions.

Macy's started the trend

Macy's started the trend of packing all those things into a small space, and again, it really caused visual overload. I am so glad the Pasadena Macy's has a few more bodies in it these days.

Don't know about Blair's.
