As I type this, the clock is slowly ticking toward the first Tournament of Roses Parade of the new decade. Around this time, 100 years ago, the parade had no theme (and wouldn’t have one until 1918, with the theme of “Patriotism”). The grand marshals of the 1910 parade were Dr. Francis F. Rowland and Professor Charles F. Holder, both founders of the Tournament of Roses Parade. Rowland is the only person with the distinction of having been grand marshal seven times, according to the Tournament of Roses.

It is hearts and flowers day on Saturday — Happy Valentine’s Day! It seems that we are going to catch up with our rainfall numbers. The rain certainly has been falling and falling. On Monday afternoon it hailed like crazy at my house. Lola, my little dog, had just gone outside to take a stroll when she was being pelted by the little balls of ice. She couldn’t quite figure out what it was and came running pell-mell into the house again with a very frightened look on her face.

Life changes at the end of October. Last Friday, a colleague, the sole Trojan in our law office full of sensible people, sounded off about his team’s rough landing en route to the Notre Dame game. I reminded him of USC motto, Palmam qui meruit ferat — “Let whomever earns the palm bear it.” Further inspired, I dusted off the silver-framed ten dollar bill which serves as a perpetual trophy — my Blue ‘n’ Gold versus his Cardinal ‘n’ Gold.
