Move clocks ahead this Saturday night La Cañada Flintridge residents are reminded to move their timepieces ahead one hour before retiring Saturday night as Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday. This is the second year that Daylight Saving Time will last a month longer than in the past; the change came about with the 2005 Energy Policy Act. Arizona and Hawaii do not observe Daylight Saving Time, nor do Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands or American Samoa.

Our daughter was so excited by her 6-week educational sailing trip last fall on the 134' Corwith Cramer from Woods Hole, Mass. down to the Virgin Islands, that when we were presented with the opportunity to sail on her sister ship Robert Seamans, which plies the Pacific - a four-day cruise from San Pedro to San Diego for alumni and parents - my wife and I jumped at the chance. The Sea Education Association of Woods Hole runs trips in both the Atlantic and Pacific for students who learn oceanography, maritime history, navigation, weather and a lot about themselves, first on shore and then at sea. It is commonly done in place of a college semester.

Penelope’s Café is filled with dogs, cats, and adorable children this month — well, some pretty realistic renditions of the kids and pets — as local artist, Sarah Prescott displays her watercolor artwork along the walls of the popular La Cañada venue. The exhibit runs through April 30 at Penelope’s, 1029 Foothill Blvd. Larry Moss, who owns Penelope’s with wife, Penny, said he’s excited for Prescott’s work to be on display in the café.

“What do you look for in a jockey?” It was 6 a.m. at Santa Anita Park. I was visiting with Doug O'Neill, a race-horse trainer. We were at his barn, one of many barns just west of the racetrack. We sat in a small prefab office near the stalls. Outside were horses, trainers, grooms and more horses. Inside were photos of horses, grooms, jockeys, awards and paintings of horses. Staffers walked in and out, going about their business while we talked. O'Neill and I chatted about Kevin Krigger, a young jockey from the Virgin Islands.

“If you come here at 6:30 every morning, after you leave, you will always have a good day.” I was chatting with a young jockey named Kevin Krigger. We were seated in the stands at Clocker's Corner in Santa Anita Park. Clocker's is one of our region's undiscovered gems. Good coffee. Great breakfast menu. Inexpensive. The morning haze had lifted. Before us stretched the verdant slopes of the San Gabriel Mountains. Thoroughbred race horses exercised a few yards away from us. The customers were a mix of trainers, owners, jockeys and hangers-on like me. There were a couple of dogs, happy to accompany their owners.

It was a beautiful Friday morning at the Santa Anita racetrack. Here in La Cañada Flintridge, an annual trip to Santa Anita to watch the thoroughbreds is an essential event. There I was. I picked the first horse simply for its name. The horse, a 4-year-old filly, was the third horse in the third race. Her name, appropriately, was Too Many Tomatoes. That night, I planned to attend a lecture for Tomatomania at Descanso Gardens (See “Around Town: Just crazy about tomatoes” Valley Sun April 4)
