San Gabriel Mountains National Monument Obama Visit Declaration San Dimas

Here’s the video of the event where Obama declared the San Gabriel Mountains a National Monument.


If you have not heard President Obama is coming to town today and among the events he is attending is one in San Dimas to declare the San Gabriel Mountains a National Monument.

While not all agree with this event, there are many who feel it is deserved and will mean that additional funds become available to improve the San Gabriel Mountains, which extend from Pasadena to San Dimas and surrounding communities.
The San Gabriel Mountains are full of recreational activities, hiking trails, water falls, vast area of land.

Bonelli Park in San Dimas on Friday

The San Gabriel Mountains comprise approximately 345,000 acres.

Pasadena State of the Mulch – Transition Pasadena

Do you want more high-quality mulch more easily? Come share your ideas and concerns at State of the Mulch, Wednesday, October 8 at 7:00 PM at the Wright Auditorium inside the Pasadena Central Library.
Arborists trim our trees, shred what they trim, and haul that mulch to the landfill every day as waste. At the same time, residents are starting to spread a thick layer of tree mulch on lawns and then plant drought-tolerant plants into it to save water and money. But buying mulch in bags at a garden center is expensive. For lawn removal to scale up to meet the City of Pasadena Zero Waste and water conservation goals, homeowners need abundant free tree mulch.
To meet the needs of all, arborists, homeowners and the city, Mulch for the People, a project of Transition Pasadena, has planned a public meeting for all stakeholders to develop a program for making mulch more freely available. Gabriel Silva of Pasadena Public Works, Wendy DeLeon of Pasadena Water and Power and Marco Barrantes of La Loma Development will speak. Moderator Blair Miller will also invite the public to contribute ideas and concerns.
The library is located at 285 East Walnut Street Pasadena, CA 91101. Use street parking; library parking is for library patrons. Questions? Post or message at

at 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Elon Musk – Tesla to Unveil D and Something Else – Oct 9, 2014 @elonmusk @tesla

Update: The Tesla media event is scheduled to take place, Oct 9, 2014 in Los Angeles at Hawthorne Airport, where we understand not only will details on the D be released, but also a prototype of the Tesla Model 3.  Since there’s no prototype of the Model 3 which has been seen in public, this will be a welcomed development, as Tesla releasing a $30,000-$35,000 price range, will surely impact the competitors such as Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt, who presently outsell the Tesla. Nissan LEAF is the #1 selling all electric vehicle.

The Oct 9, 2014 Tesla Media Event taking place at Hawthorne Airport, in Hawthorne California.  at 7pm.

Tesla has a design facilities in Hawthorne, CA

3203 Jack Northrop Ave, Hawthorne, California 90250 (310) 219-4600

Tesla Factory
45500 Fremont Blvd.
Fremont, CA 94538

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk is set to unveil  “D” and something else on October 9, 2014,  per his tweet:

Speculation is that it is a new model, just in time for auto shows around the globe, could it be a driverless Tesla?  Model D for driverless….or perhaps Driver Assisted, others are speculating that it is a dual motor model, or all wheel drive.

Tesla has variations of the Model S, which has been wildly popular.

The Model X is out next year, which is basically a Model S turned into a stunningly stylish SUV.

The Model 3, which is supposed to be the lower priced $35,000 Tesla entry, announced earlier this year.

And don’t forget the original Roadster, which is very popular, perhaps we will see some enhancements on the Roadster in the coming years.
