And the rains came down. The weather people said that it would rain and it did with great gusto. You know me, I just love the rain — guess it’s because I have webbed toes from all those years I lived in Seattle. Most of the folks around town have been complaining that there was just too much of the wet stuff day after day after day. Ohhh, and the snow capping our local mountains was absolutely gorgeous. It has been a very weather dramatic week or so. Just remember these past few weeks next August when it is so hot you can barely move — maybe it will help you cool off. The 2008 Showcase House of Design is once again in La Cañada Flintridge.

Nostalgia is like a gecko. It can creep up your spine, without ever revealing its presence, and then sting you with its tongue just when you least expect it. Today nostalgia stung me, hard, just a few weeks short of my coming home. My last exam was a few hours ago, the 14th of June, also the last day of school. Walking through the long corridors, I reflected upon the change that had occurred in me over the last ten months, and over the change that I had caused within the school. The same passages had seemed drab before, hosting a mass of people who did not understand me, my values, my habits, my language and were as foreign to me as I was to them.

The few summer weeks I had in Spain were among the best of my life. Two glorious weeks of fun in the med, festival nights and medieval carnivals were all set off by the last sweet school bell. My house became nothing more then a place to sleep, and maybe pilfer a plate of food if I had no money to buy from a market. The bed in question was only used during the daylight hours, for the night offered such an intoxicating selection of activities that any weariness seamed to be expelled from me. Just when I thought that I could no more — aching eyes from lack of sleep, sunburned skin, and a hurt body from too much aggressive sport, Hogueras came.

My Iberian Immersion By Morgan Hartley I have left "the bubble" to go blindly live a year as a high school junior in Spain. I left behind my cozy little home in La Cañada on August 30 to meet up in Washington, D.C. with dozens of other pumped-up, adventure-seeking American Field Services students headed to all points in Europe. All I knew of my heading was an address, a family's name, and three years worth of Spanish at LCHS. My body was filled with a nauseating mix of excitement, curiosity, trepidation, and anxiety.

Don't be misled by the title of the first cookbook by José Andrés first cookbook. José, who was recently named "Chef of the Year" by Bon Appetit, explains in the preface of "Tapas" that almost all his recipes for "little plates" or tapas, can be used for breakfast, supper meals, dessert or dinner entrees. When my pre-publication copy of "Tapas" arrived, I jumped for joy. As readers will recall, I heaped high praise on Mark Bittman's PBS television series, "How to Cook Everything Bittman Takes on America's Chefs."

I loved Monday's rainstorm. I lived in Seattle for several years, and while there, acquired a rainy day state of mind. However, last week that fair city was snowed-in. Old friends who still live there said their back yard looked like a winter wonderland. They live on one of Seattle's many hills, so they couldn't even get out of their driveway - it was a good thing they stocked up on groceries before the snowflakes started to fall. I hope that Monday's storm brought us some snow in Southland's mountains so the snow bunnies can hit the slopes.
