Letters to the Editor Are you missing a guinea-fowl? There is an uninvited guest at our house. It asks nothing of us, except perhaps to be left alone, and is free to leave whenever he/she decides. But he/she cannot seem to make up his/her mind and has been hanging around us since last November. At first we didn’t know what he/she was but finally concluded it’s a guinea-fowl, a feather-duster looking creature about the size of a chicken. It can fly if scared, making a high-speed run to get airborne, then awkwardly flapping its way to our roof.

Junior Girl Scout Troop 890, fourth graders from La Cañada Elementary, attended a two-night, three-day camp out at Lazy J. Ranch in Malibu for a weekend of Girl Scout fun. Troop 890 participated in activities that included fencing, archery, animal husbandry, hiking, horseback riding and mining for quartz. The girls demonstrated great teamwork by cleaning and caring for a llama, several guinea pigs and rabbits, and their efforts earned them several ribbons. They also performed a skit during their stay at the Lazy J. Even the moms participated by doing their own skit called "Scouting U.S.A."

On your marks, get set - roll! That was the call Saturday afternoon at La Cañada's Petco, where local hamster lovers raced their pets in the store's 2014 Hamster Ball Derby. Tiny rodents competed from inside clear plastic balls arranged on rows of plastic tracks. A checkered finish line marked the goal. The first to make it down the track won his or her bracket, plus a few edamame beans for a treat, before moving onto the next round. Although nine hamsters were registered, only a few owners mustered the courage to show.

Ever wonder why the flu thrives in winter? It’s always been explained away — kids back in school, people crowded in buses, airplanes and movie theaters. Sounds reasonable. But if this were the case, why doesn’t flu season start in September when school starts? Also, crowding happens even in the summer when there’s no flu bug going around. Flu season is always during the coldest months and we’re right in the midst of it here in Southern Cal. Northern latitudes get the season from November to March, down in the southern latitudes it goes from May until September.

Pony rides, a petting zoo and a plethora of activities made Saturday?s Dragon Faire the place to be Saturday as St. George?s Preschool parents put on the school?s annual fund-raising event. Hundreds of folks showed up to enjoy the Dragon Faire, which has been a part of La Cañada for the past about 35 years and helps pay for extras at the preschool. ?This is our only fund-raiser and it?s completely organized and run by the parents. It?s a wonderful event,? said Cherie McSweeney, who has been involved in the activity for the past 29 years, the last 10 years as the preschool director.

As the cool kids would say, it sucks to be a mom at my age. And they would say it if they had to deal with a brain as old as mine. A dozen times each day I forget why I am where I am, and why I’m doing what I’m doing. I’ve turned to chemicals for help; I’ve taken gingko biloba (one of the oldest trees on earth with a unique vein pattern to its leaves, which eventually forms a lovely, spreading canopy that switches almost overnight to brilliant lemon yellow in the fall)
