This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

Village Green Picture of the Day - June 24

What is this? Why is it POD? My mother sent it to me, at my request. It arrived today. It is an antique citrus juicer. What's so special about it? A few things: first, it works. The new fangled thing we bought SUCKS. This is efficient and easy to use. It gets out all the juice, doesn't make a mess, and cleans up easily. Second, I remember it from my childhood. Third, and most importantly, it was a 25th anniversary gift to my grandparents in 1947!
