Monica Hubbard is a former Caltecher, and I’m a current Techer (well, I use that a bit liberally since the students probably want to own that phrase!). 

I’ll be at Wednesday’s Chamber of Commerce mixer that Monica is sponsoring — I look forward to meeting you!

~~~    The Altadena Library’s new Web site looks great!
http://altadenalibrary.org    They are in the midst of their Banned Books
celebration. Over on the Orange Cat Web site, Karen Klein suggests
that this would be a good time to take your children to a library and
have some discussions about First Amendment rights and freedom of
expression.  More online on this at the American Booksellers
Foundation for Free Expression. http://www.abffe.org/

~~~    Parents with children of any age will appreciate an online
newsletter with advice, tips and a calendar of family-friendly events
going on in the San Gabriel Valley.  Visit the Orange Cat
http://www.theorangecat.org/ and sign up to receive their e-mail
newsletter. Karen Klein has a great article this month on her math
phobia and a new resource for parents to use to help their children
with math.

~~~    Are you a mom struggling for balance in your life?  Kristin
Maschka would like to hear from you.  She recently got an offer for a
yet-to-be-titled book on motherhood, to be released by Berkley, an
imprint of Penguin, in April 2009. Kristin is requesting mothers
everywhere to contribute stories and insights to her work.  She’ll use
the collective voices of moms to help mothers see the hidden beliefs
about mothers, fathers, money, marriage and work that make motherhood
an often disorienting experience. These collective voices will guide
mothers to things they can do today that will immediately enable them
to break free and think differently about themselves, their families,
and OUR future.  Mothers can contribute and sign up for my monthly
newsletter at http://www.kristinmaschka.com and e-mail Kristin directly at
kristin@kristinmaschka.com .

~~~     Great article and photo in Thursday’s Pasadena Weekly about
Catherine Bauknight, Patricia Cunliffe, and Ellen Snortland who all

films.  Check out this great article here:

~~~    Our Youth Activities League at Elliot Middle School is going
strong.  Save November 4 for a concert to benefit this worthwhile

~~~    Flu season is almost upon us.  If your health care provider’s
office doesn’t have shots available yet, Phoenix Wellness Center on
the corner of Washington and Altadena Drive does.  10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday. $25.00. (HERE’S MY CAVEAT ON FLU SHOTS — I’LL NEVER GET ANOTHER ONE. I JUST DON’T BELIEVE IN THEM, DATA DOESN’T SUPPORT THEIR USE. AND THE THREE TIMES I GOT ONE, I GOT VERY ILL. SO I WOULD CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR, AND A WELLNESS SPECIALIST, BEFORE GETTING ONE.–Debbi–AAIA)

Have a great week!    ~ Monica Hubbard
