It is a well-established fact that girls and Hello Kitty just go together. That would explain the dozens of smiles that were found in front of La Cañada Books and Toys on Saturday afternoon, where the store hosted a Hello Kitty tea event. “This is one of the many activities we’ve been trying to do for boys and girls throughout the year,” says Chelsea Waterson, a La Cañada Books and Toys employee. “Toy stores are supposed to be fun!” Although this was the store’s first-ever Hello Kitty tea, it proved to be quite a success with all of its free-of-charge activities for Hello Kitty lovers under the age of 12. Young girls could be seen happily playing Hello Kitty Bingo, making wands, coloring, getting their face painted, or simply munching on lemonade and animal crackers.

I met them in the Officers' Club. Although, because of its state of disrepair, it could hardly be called a club; the week prior it had taken a hit from a wayward rocket meant for the airfield. My shyness did not keep our distant but similar worlds apart. I was immediately attracted to their boisterous gregariousness and broad smiles. They were rogue warriors, SAS (Strategic Air Service) from Australia, and were considered to be the best of the best. The Viet Cong called them Ma Rung , (phantoms of the jungle)

An Episcopalian neighbor sent me an interesting brochure. The brochure was for a conference on the Middle East at All Saints Church in Pasadena, organized by “Friends of Sabeel.” I looked closely at the brochure. The conference would commemorate the al nakba . I was puzzled. I knew that al means “the,” but what in the world was nakba ? Naturally, I took the brochure to my friend, Ahuva Einstein. Ahuva’s mother is familiar to those who read this column.

There's great satisfaction when the rewards for our efforts multiply. It's why I began drinking tea. What started out with sense of duty, trying to offset a cold or settle my stomach, or whatever those first few cups were for, has grown into a welcome, calming, routine part of my life. I am a tea snob. I appreciate a really good cup of tea and am delighted to know where it was grown and the properties it carries. I get excited about it. Tea is much more than we give it credit for - tea preparation alone can lower your heart rate.

With the Dec. 15 certification of seven candidates crowding the field for three La Cañada Flintridge City Council seats up for grabs in March, there hasn't been much time for hopefuls to communicate their platforms or for voters to make up their minds in what promises to be a hotly-contested race. But conservative activists with the Pasadena-based TEAPAC, an umbrella political action committee for Tea Party organizations statewide, have wasted no time in throwing early support behind three local candidates — even before any of them had met with the group or asked for its backing.

Incumbency may have its advantages come election time, but not with this crowd. Members of the Pasadena Patriots, a local Tea Party organizing group, dominated the audience Monday at a 44th Assembly District candidates' debate in Pasadena, turning up the heat on state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge). On the other hand, dark horse Republican challenger Alvaro Day — a recent UCLA graduate and co-founder of the Pasadena City College Republican Club who traces his political career back to a 2009 Tea Party rally — enjoyed a number of audience questions that allowed him to spell out a platform that includes across-the-board tax cuts, rollback of environmental regulations and smaller government.

Stepping into the Lanterman House ballroom on Sunday was like stepping back in time. Couples, dressed in clothes that echoed to the turn of the 20th century, twirled across the wood floor while a four-piece band played song after song. The annual Rag Time Tea Dance draws dozens of period enthusiasts, vintage costume collectors and musicologists, as well as a few curious onlookers. Among the most spectacular get-ups was a World War I military uniform, complete with knee-high, brown leather boots, and a long-sleeve, floor length white gown topped with an enormous floppy hat. The event attracts people looking for a splash of elegance, said organizer Walter Nelson.

Last Thursday, I dashed back to La Cañada to attend a tea at the La Cañada Thursday Club. That morning, I had dropped off six dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies for the tea. Despite a busy work schedule, I wanted to reconnect with the ladies. In case you are a newcomer, or have been living under a rock, the La Cañada Thursday Club is a women?s social club, founded in October 1912 by Elizabeth Frances Knight. When I was president of the Thursday Club, we did a lot of charity, including substantial scholarship awards, but the outside world did not intrude into the meetings.
