My friend (and former physician), the late George Hjelte, regularly drove from Pasadena to Palo Alto, up Highway 101. He made the trip to see his daughter. He did this well into his 80s, loading up the car with his favorite pooch, making stops along the way. “I'm not in a hurry,” he told me. For people in a hurry, there's the Interstate 5 to the Pacheco Pass, right through Old Gilroy (the garlic capital of the world), to connect with Highway 101. People in a hurry drive (or fly)

Bob Hanley and I graduated from Saint Frances of Rome in 1961. After graduation we went our separate ways. It would take 50 years before we'd reconnect in a serendipitous encounter at Penelope's Cafe. A few days ago out of the clear blue, I received a note from Bob. “Joe, I am performing at Saint Bede's for their 61st birthday celebration. Please come.” Although it would take an act of Congress to rearrange my girls' involvements, I fired a note back: “I'll be there!” Bob has a voice like Frank Sinatra's and is backed by a 17-piece orchestra.

One of the most popular LCF Tournament of Roses "Happy Hour" events is the annual Hamburger Nite coming up on Friday, Aug. 25, from 6 to 9 p.m. Sarah and Mayfield Marshall will generously open their home and garden for the event, and Jim Geoghegan, who has gained quite a reputation as the 'Hamburger Chef' will again be flipping the burgers. For only $5 each, members, guests and anyone in the community over 18 can enjoy one of Jim's hamburgers with all the fixings. Everyone brings an hors d'oeuvre to share, and members of the board of directors donate salads, baked beans, and condiments, i.e., lettuce, mayo, sliced tomatoes, pickles, relish, etc. Your favorite beverages are available, as usual, for a most nominal amount.

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association defines a "self built float" as an entry built and decorated entirely by volunteers. This year La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association salutes the dedicated volunteers who make each float possible by naming its 28th Rose Parade entry "Self Built Float." In keeping with the 2007 Rose Parade theme, "Our Good Nature," the recently unveiled rendering of "Self Built Float" depicts a group of arctic characters working together to build a giant root beer float.

With summer drawing to a close and the chaos of back-to-school season approaching, families and community residents eagerly gathered Sunday in Memorial Park for the final 2010 Music in the Park concert. The evening kicked off with a performance by Andre Thierry, a Northern California musician, and his band Zydeco Magic. Zydeco, a combination of both Cajun and Creole music, is rooted in Southwest Louisiana. "Here's a little zydeco music for you and it goes a little something like this," said Thierry to the enthusiastic crowd as his band kicked off its set. Though guests had comfortably settled into their lawn chairs, ready to relax and enjoy the show, many were in front of the gazebo dancing as soon as Zydeco Magic began playing.
