Tom was the local heartthrob. He never missed a workout. He spent hours at the gym (where I was working my way through college) lifting weights for his upper body, mostly his biceps. His legs were thin but he said the “curls were for the girls.” He never wanted help, said he “had it all figured it out.” We like to see results for the effort we put into exercising.

Preston MacDougall In the timeless American film “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” the political machine lost its rhythm after a Western state’s Senator kicked the can. In the current upper house drama, Idaho Senator Larry Craig played some footsie while on the can, but the only thing that died was his credibility. Still, the political machine is churning as if he had died, and I wouldn’t be surprised if a Republican Party loyalist in Idaho was secretly picking out drapes.

If you’re wondering why La Cañada High’s junior varsity baseball field still looks so fresh after the beating it received from football and soccer over the last few years, there’s a reason.

The biostimulant, an organic formula created by Highland-based Athletic Field Specialists, has seen sports fields in La Cañada maintain nearly 99% of its grass turf heading into baseball season, according to Gonzalo Venegas of the city’s facilities and maintenance superintendent.

Incan tribes in the Andes Mountains of South America knew they had something special. They considered quinoa to be sacred and referred to it as the “mother of all grains.” They held ritual planting ceremonies in which the emperor sowed the first seeds of the season using golden implements. They believed quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) gave their soldiers extra strength and stamina on the battlefield. But the Spanish conquistadors came along put a stop to this “food for Indians.” They forbade cultivation and forced the Incas to grow wheat.

Loa Blasucci Let's talk about the most coveted commodity in your life. The more of it you have, the better you feel and the higher quality of life you enjoy. Hmm, you say, is it money, your big, beautiful La Cañada home, gasoline … what could it be? Surprisingly, none of the above. It's energy! So let's cut right to the chase and focus on your body's "squeaky wheel" when it comes to energy usage. The digestive process uses energy on demand.

Dining with Duvall by Lynn Duvall In our kitchen, we've battled a cupboard pest that looks like a small, brown moth. The mysterious moth devours dry goods like flour, cereal or rice. We've taken to re-packaging those staples in tightly closed glass jars. Naturally, we're now paranoid about dry goods, searching constantly for any sign of the enemy. Last week, we found a plastic bag of rice, overlooked in the last round of re-packaging. Bob thought he saw a suspicious speck.
