Men in coats and ties or tuxes, and bejeweled ladies in finery sat around white linen covered tables topped with centerpieces of red roses. They talked of children, grandchildren, vacations, murder mysteries and college pranks. There were reminiscences of float years gone by and even talk of the snowfall that lightly covered La Cañada during the 1949 Christmas program at one of the local elementary schools. About 130 of La Cañada’s finest turned out to share An Evening of Wine and Roses Sunday night at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club.

On my return from Northern California, I gave my daughter an extensive travel report. When I finished the Kendall Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival section, she said, "So, that's going to be five-part column?" without a trace of sarcasm. I wish I had space and time to share everything I experienced up north, but I don't. Instead, I'll request your patience over the next few weeks, while I wander the countryside, mixing news from our native oak Foothills with tidbits gathered in the lush vine-covered hills and valleys of Napa-Sonoma.

Continuing with tips for French international protocol, business and social dining with dress etiquette is addressed here. Fine dining and fashion is important to the French.

My garden loved all the rain we got when February came to an end with a series of storms. The leaves on my camellia bushes seem shinier, the azalea bushes are abundant with glorious blooms and the lemon tree is very heavy with fruit. It looks like I'm going to have plenty of juice to freeze for summer's lemonade. Last weekend I basked in the warmth as I plumped the pillows on my favorite swing in the back patio and settled in to read a book and listen to bird song. An occasional butterfly would momentarily distract me from the pages of my book.

Hundreds of costumed children made their way to my doorstep last Thursday night for Halloween treats. I ran out of the goodies earlier than expected so this witch had to shut off the lights and pretend she wasn't at home. I thought when dawn came I would be seeing candy wrappers blowing across my lawn. Instead, the only remnant that the marauding candy horde left in its wake was a beautiful red feather that had once belonged to somebody with an exotic crimson boa - it was a sweet reminder of All Hallow's Eve. -- The La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn.

The first time you drive to Altaeats, you'll probably miss it. Situated between a salon and a cleaners on North Allen just south of New York Drive, the diminutive Altadena eatery has no sign, only a black awning. But find it you must. It's not often a restaurant with such meticulously prepared dishes opens in our drivable realm. A couple years back, head chef and co-owner Paul Ragan, formerly of Derek's Bistro in Pasadena, was walking his Altadena neighborhood, toying with the idea of buying a food truck when he came upon this vacant property.

Whew! I'm exhausted from the unrelenting heat. This has been quite the late-summer siege. I know that some of you thrive in this kind of weather but for me, it is torture. Here in my very old house, the slightly younger but still antiquated air conditioner tries really hard, but it just can't make it cool enough for me to get any relief. I have found myself eagerly jumping into the car to run errands just to cool off. I'm really counting on the accuracy of our weather people, who tell us that for a few days the temps will drop into the lower 90s or high 80s, which is certainly a whole lot better than the 100-plus we have been suffering through.

Were you howling at the moon last Saturday night? We enjoyed the first full moon of 2013. Not that I usually pay any attention to the names of the full moons throughout the year, but this moon is known as the “Full Wolf Moon.” The Algonquin and Sioux tribes thus named it. Of course I wanted to know why. According to NBC news, “Amid the zero cold and deep snows of mid-winter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. It was also known as the Old Moon or the Moon after Yule.” *** Noir Food and Wine restaurant in Pasadena gave a prelude Saturday to the upcoming sixth annual Pasadena PinotFest, which is scheduled for Feb. 9 at Altadena Country Club.

Four years ago Mike Farwell, owner of Noir Food and Wine Restaurant in Pasadena, was sharing a wonderful pinot noir wine and exquisite food with his chef, Claud Beltran and good friends. During the meal Farwell brought up the idea of having an annual grand tasting of pinot wines that would also benefit a local charity. The idea became a reality within a few short months. It was a quiet but important beginning - that first year 60 people gathered to taste pinot noirs and to sample foods from top chefs.
