In the summer of 1973, Len and I were married in a garden full of flowers. The valuables brought to the marriage by the bride are called a dowry; the equivalent for a groom is called a dower. Since we didn’t know the difference, we used the word dowry for everything. My cats were my dowry. The battered electric skillet was his. Plus the stereo, a chess set and a ’68 GTO. The most valuable gift that Len brought to our marriage were his best friends — Steve and Judy.

With proud smiles and carrying cameras, the grandparents of Palm Crest Elementary School's kin-dergartners came last week to their annual Thanksgiving Day feast. The students in Wendy Senour and Maggy Landau's classes prepared for days, making their own pilgrim or Native American costumes and one for their grandparent, including macaroni necklaces, as well as practicing selected songs. The students brought in the ingredients for the stone soup they shared with their grandparents, which was also served with cornbread, apple juice and cranberry crisp for dessert.

Ten Years Ago ... An electrical problem in the ceiling area of an empty Bank of America building caused the most devastating commercial fire in La Cañada Flintridge history. Suffering a combined loss of $1.5 million were the four local shops in the 500 block of Foothill Boulevard. County firefighters responded in less than two minutes and saved the other businesses, including Ralphs grocery store. No injuries were reported, although County Fire Chief Mark D. McConnell said only seconds separated two firemen from death.

La Cañada celebrated Zoe Ferraris' novel “Finding Nouf,” a OneCityOneBook pick, in two events this past weekend. A children's event called “The Ships of the Desert” was hosted for children on Saturday at the city library, and a book signing and author interview drew about 130 people to the La Cañada Unified School District Office on Sunday afternoon. Ferraris' novel is a mystery about a young woman's disappearance and is set in present-day Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. While the book is a mystery, much of the story focuses on the tensions between a devout, traditional Muslim male and a bold Muslim female ally who has launched her own investigation into the girl's disappearance.

Sonia Chung stood at the front of a third-grade classroom at La Cañada Elementary School Wednesday and held up several commonly consumed beverages, including soda, apple juice and chocolate milk. “It is easy to just suck these down,” she said, brandishing a Capri Sun juice packet. What the drinks have in common are large amounts of sugar, said Chung, a parent volunteer who teachers healthy cooking classes at the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA and the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge.

In spite of sweltering heat last Sunday, outdoor events across the Southland were well-attended by families eager to enjoy the last days of summer vacation. Our family made a tour of two popular festivals. In Montrose the Harvest Festival farmers brought fruit, vegetables and flowers, but the organizers added extras especially for children. As we exited the car, we bumped into the Schechter family from Pasadena in the parking lot near Market Street. Cathy carried baby daughter Kyra, while Steve toted bags of produce, and a gorgeous bouquet of giant yellow sunflowers.

In searching for information about the human brain, researchers commonly use rats. While studying the effects of various fruit and vegetables on aging rats, scientists made some startling discoveries relative to the field of nutrition. For one early project, in the mid-'90s, three groups of aging rats were studied. The first group of rats ate their usual grain diet. The second group had spinach added and the third ate a diet enriched with blueberries. Rats can swim, but they dislike water.
