Lettuce start the new month with just a couple of quick notes on happenings yesterday, the last day of the of de month:
An addendum to my locos in the local news of 3/26/10. In the late afternoon I noticed yet another familiar name made the local paper. Public Editor Wilson, quotes Petrea Burchard the photographer, as leaving a comment against soccer fields for kids in the Hahamongna!!
Doesn’t sound like the Petrea Burchard I know: actress, writer, actor, blogger, voice impersonator, friend to all, speaker. Yet, most known in these parts as the personal servant for Boz the Boxer. Besides, my Petrea de blogger rarely leaves a comment, even on blogs!
I surmise it’s just a name coincidence. It does get me to thinking about some other locos I would love to see in the news.
However, her name does remind me to remind you of the actress/writer/friend-to-all/blogger/speaker Petrea who will be giving a speech on Blogging for Business tonite! Call the Pasadena Womens City Club @ (626)796-0560 to reserve a seat (at $6), if seats are still available. So, be there or be…well, I’ll let you know after the talk.
For most of the morning I was at Citihall and the Citihall area taking care of business. No, not balancing the city budget by paying parking tickets. However I’ve noticed the line to that window is usually vacant. I guess most violators promptly pay their tickets through some others avenue.
I made sure to avoid the city council chambers where all kinds of insane fireworks have been known to occur. Who elects these “representatives” anyway!?
At lunch time, after having eaten lunch, I left Pasadena with a couple of local chefs into busy downtown LA. To have lunch. One of my very worthy dining companions just happened to be a professor of culinary studies at one of the top culinary institutions in the world.
We were basically trying out, or just eating, various fancy sandwiches. While all were good, only one was deserving of an encore. IMHO. Ate at the bar and lounge area. All of us agreed in the great waiter/food service – from the bartender.
We found parking, saw, ate, reviewed, paid parking, and gotta out that maze – back to Pasadena!
So, just a few quick bites from Monday. The resta day was just more work.
Gotta Do Some More of Something Today. Stay Thirsty My Friends!
