The Yariv garden is a quintessential example of the Mid-Century Modernism style. The house, designed in 1960 by the notable local architect, Bill Blurock, presents an austere façade to the street that belies the elegance of the interior and rear garden…
When my husband and I stopped at an estate sale the object of our interest became the garden! As soon as we walked in to the home it became a secondary thought, one look out of the window and the garden became first and foremost…
This is the first time this private, estate garden has been included in the Open Days program. The house and garden are designed to take full advantage of the mild, Mediterranean climate where outdoor entertaining can be a year-round activity…
Our gardens surround our Thornton Ladd-designed, modernist house completed around 1950. We extensively re-landscaped the grounds around 1990 with the assistance of the late landscape architect Owen Peters of EPT Design…
Donivee Nash grew up in Delaware surrounded by the rich culture of nineteenth-century estate gardens like Longwood, Mount Cuba, Winterthur and Nemours. She brought this garden aesthetic with her to the New England-style saltbox (as this property was in 1938) over thirty five years ago…

Carl Icahn has sold all if his firms Apple Stake amid China concerns
Owned a massive 45.8 million shares in Apple at the end of 2015 (FactSet).
Sold his entire position in the gadget maker on concerns of its uncertain future in China.
This couple owns $1 million in Apple Stock.
Even at the trading average at the sale, Icahn most likely made a pretty nifty profit. Calculating that 45.8 million shares at say $95 = $4,351,000,000, that is over $4 billion!
This will weigh down Apple stock which has been battered after 13 years with positive growth now turning down and expert sentiment that at least the next quarter will also result in downward sales.
Shares of Icahn Enterprises (IEP) have plunged 33% over the past year due to bad bets on oil-related companies like Chesapeake Energy (CHK) and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX), according to USA Today.
The question is how will Apple fix this?
Could we see Apple stock in the $50 range? Perhaps it will hit $75, but $50 would mean massive loss in stock valuation and investors most likely would start a massive sell off which could present a buying opportunity, but could also cause issues for investors, many why hold large positions of Apple stock.
AT&T is making slow progress to implement robocall blocking for its customers. Tell AT&T’s CEO to step it up and make robocall blocking a priority.
Your campaign to End Robocalls has caught fire, and phone companies are paying attention. Because of you and the half-million consumers who joined our EndRobocalls.org campaign, AT&T has started to make it easier for some of their customers to access robocall-blocking tools.
But we know that’s not enough. We need AT&T to set the gold standard and provide 100% of its customers with free and effective tools to block robocalls.
Join Consumers Union and 600,000+ other customers in telling AT&T’s CEO, Randall Stephenson: “Thanks for taking steps to block robocalls. It’s time to finish the job!”
Even if AT&T isn’t your primary phone provider, they’re an industry leader with millions of customers nationwide. Pushing them to act could create a domino effect that leads to action by your phone provider.
While providers like Time Warner Cable have started offering free call-blocking tools to all of their voice customers, Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T, has been happy to let his customers deal with the headache.
Together, we have over 600,000 voices that AT&T can’t ignore. Join us.

Open Studios AltaPasaDena, Presenting A Gift Of Art With Our Neighbors – Come Curious, Leave Inspired!
The Open Studios Tour is a Free Tour of the home studios of local artists in the Altadena and Pasadena area. During this tour, the artists open their studios to people to come in for a visit.
Open Studios is an intimate view into an artist’s domain, where ideas are conceived and come to life. When you visit an artist’s studio, the creative process is palpable. It’s unique to each artist and unattainable at your typical gallery show. That is, in essence, what makes this event so special.
People of all ages love this self-guided tour, with the flexibility to visit with as many artists as you like over two days. We have found this casual format to be a wonderful exchange between artists and visitors.
Note: for what it is worth, I tried to open an account and got to the “Review and Sign” page and hit submit and the page goes nowhere and if you call to speak to someone, be prepared to be on hold for a while.

The U.S. Treasury has decided to put African American abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the front of the new $20 bill.
Former president Andrew Jackson, will be moved to the back of the bill, Treasury officials said Wednesday.
The new $20 bill along with other changes to US currency are already in progress.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced Wednesday the decision to keep Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill
Harriet Tubman was an African-American abolitionist. She rescued approximately seventy enslaved families using the Underground Railroad. She died in 1913, at age 91.
Sad news today regarding the closing of the Arroyo Food Co-Op Market. Items will be sold to clear out and return the keys to the owner, who apparently is in the process to begin construction on the property.
It is with a heavy heart, and deep regret, that we must announce the end of the road for the AFC market.
Our financial challenges are more than we can overcome. Our income has been declining for the last few months, and the cost of doing business has not. This, coupled with our urgent need to relocate, and the extra expenses that relocation would bring, has forced us to make the painful decision to close the Arroyo Food Co-op market.
Our relocation fundraising efforts resulted in around $5000 in donations, and we give thanks to those who stepped up to keep us rolling – too many names to list here, but you know who you are, and you did far more than your share in trying to make this venture a success.
Our loyal shoppers also did their share, making us their go-to spot for all sorts of better-for-the-planet goods, and we salute you for putting your grocery money where your heart and soul knew was best.
If you have purchased pre-paid grocery cards,
this is the time to use them up.
We will continue to operate while we liquidate our inventory, so stock up on your favorites while we have them. We will continue, for a while, to re-stock on some dairy and produce items, to make your trip worth your while. If you would like to pre-order Mark Stambler’s fabulous breads, please do so – but we will not place any stocking orders with him, so the only Pagnol bread will be reserved for pre-paid customers.
Our goal is to wind down operations in the next few weeks, so we can hand the keys back to the landlord at the end of May. We will make further announcements as things develop.
