A former Speaker of the House once remarked, "All politics is local." Rep. David Dreier seems to have forgotten this during his 24 years in Congress. His website states that "David Dreier came to Congress with a vision promoting individual liberty, economic opportunity, personal responsibility, limited government and security both at home and abroad." He has betrayed the values of the voters of this district with his reckless behavior in Congress. Apparently, "limited government" means "pork-barrel spending" in Mr. Dreier's mind.

A cold front originating in the Gulf of Alaska delivered periodic rain showers to La Cañada Flintridge on Tuesday and left the San Gabriel Mountains dusted with snow. The forecast for the storm led to the closure of Angeles Forest Highway from Aliso Canyon to Angeles Crest Highway, and of a portion of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road. Some La Cañada areas interfacing with the Station fire debris flow area prepared for the storm with sandbags. But no significant rainfall totals were recorded, with Descanso Gardens reporting 0.07 inches as of Tuesday afternoon.

I cannot believe this! Another mouse/rat in the pantry! Royal just suggests I have a meaningful chat with the cat regarding his practice of bringing the outdoors IN. This time there is nothing the creature can get into, so it is shredding the cardboard sleeve on a can of English Plum Pudding. I was trying to explain rat poison to the French kid -- how it is the same chemical used to thin the blood when people get older. Warfarin/cumidin. He fixed me with that particularly French look and asked dryly, "You give this to the mouse to make it old or to your old people to kill them?"

I love jokes, all jokes. Blonde jokes: How can you tell a blonde has been working at a computer? Whiteout on the screen . Women jokes: Why couldn’t Helen Keller drive? Because she was a woman . This runs in our family. We have weird senses of humor. My sister, when she was a blonde, got a license plate (in Alaska) that read “blonde” and she installed it upside down. Most of the cops who saw it pulled her over to say they thought it was funny.
