Salvatore Attanasio arrives at Café Solé every morning by 6:30. He bakes the fragrant bread for the day's customers. His wife arrives after dropping their three kids at school in time to make the fresh pasta, the panna cotta and tiramisu. They greet lunch guests, wait tables, cook, bus, fill to-go orders. They take a quick break, pick up the kids and prepare for the pre- and post-movie dinner rushes. It's lucky if they're home by 10 p.m. They get up the next morning and do it again.

We are all creatures of habit. Let's take inventory. What do you eat or drink habitually? We each lead very different lives and food and drink are faithful medicines that help ease the runaway train of emotions we feel on a daily basis. There's caffeine for when we feel sluggish, cigarettes and comfort food for when we are nervous, a cola to keep us company while driving in the car, ice cream for late at night when we're bored. Name the emotion and there just might be a food or beverage that routinely piggybacks right along with it. Looking back on your history, what you were fed as a child, and whether or not you learned how to soothe yourself and manage your emotions, predisposed you to the eating habits you have now. Simply put, we like what we like because of how we were raised.

Years ago, a young mother of small children, I was looking for the "perfect diet" to help me lose a few pounds. When my mother heard about this she said, "Loa, if you want to be thin ? you've got to THINK THIN. It's as simple as that." Yeah, right, Mom. I didn't think much of it at the time. But now, some 30 years later, I realize she knew a very big secret. The masses have searched for this elusive secret, for it is truly a "forest for the trees" scenario. Hundreds of weight loss products and facilities abound, but the most essential ingredient might already be available to you. Natural slenderness is accompanied by a state of mind.

There you were a cute little toddler sitting up in your highchair, being fed what your parents thought was best. Your sense of taste was being developed right along with your other four senses. Toddlers can learn to enjoy spicy food, bland food, whole foods or junk foods depending on their experience. As you chew, chemicals in the food release volatile gases. The aroma of these gases creates 90% of the food?s flavor. Since smell is a big part of the taste experience, as you grew you developed favorites.

It's not been unusual in recent years to see k-rails in hillside neighborhoods of La Cañada Flintridge decorated for each season. While living next to the mud-blocking barriers that were installed after the 2009 Station fire, residents have added festive touches: pumpkins for Halloween, inflatable animals wearing Santa hats for Christmas. Now, one scuffed-up barrier at the end of the cul-de-sac on Big Briar Way has a new decoration: a sign that reads, 'ADIOS KRAIL.' The La Cañada Flintridge City Council voted in June to remove the k-rails from all but one neighborhood in the city, an action that will free the residents of Big Briar and nearby streets from the barriers they have said devalued the neighborhood and caused blind spots.
