Harriet Schock is bringing a special show to the Coffee Gallery Backstage. It illustrates how everyone is searching for the perfect lid to his or her pot. But when you think about it, your pot is not so perfect so why are you looking for a perfect lid? Shouldn't you be looking for a lid that has nicks and dings and dents that align with yours so that they don't clank and bang against your pot? The songs of Harriet's set will expand upon this premise in unimaginable ways. This is a brand new show for the Coffee Gallery Backstage, where Harriet recorded her highly acclaimed CD, "Harriet Schock Live - From Fairfax To Pasadena."

Summers in La Cañada Flintridge are lovely. The weather is gorgeous. Some nights, there are meteor showers. Traffic is lighter. Summer is the perfect time to take Miss Audrey Hepburn, our Lab-chow dog, out for Sunday brunch. If we lived in Paris, Miss Hepburn could accompany us to lunch. There would be an empty chair upon which we would place five or six shopping bags. The maitre d' would bring her a small, porcelain bowl filled to the brim with spring water. If we lived in West Hollywood, Miss Hepburn would come with us to the WeHo Bistro on La Cienega.

The vitality of a vitalized person vitalizes. That's how I feel about fellow La Cañadan Don Sheppard. You're not going to believe this guy; he's as tough as nails but you don't judge a book by its cover. Behind his piercing eyes is an encompassing heart and an undaunted spirit. I had coffee with him the other day and believe me, his spirit and energy were truly contagious. After hanging with Don I felt as though I could go a few rounds with anyone. Look at Rocky Balboa! At 60 he fought the champ, Mason Dixon.
