    This last week, I watered the garden (as well as a few hospital stairwells) with a lot of tears as my heart is heavy and filled with emotion.

  • Glendale firefighter memorialized

    When Jonathan Upton was looking for a mentor after joining the Glendale Volunteer Fire Department, he found one in Jonathan French.

    Upton and French became friends about three years ago. Volunteering for the fire department was at the heart of that bond.

    “He loved firefighting,” Upton said.

I can rattle off the names of every major (and most minor) Game of Thrones characters, I love history, I take an odd amount of pride in remembering completely pointless movie trivia (did you know that all of Jeff Bridges’ attire in The Big Lebowski was from his own closet?) and I generally occupy my free time with the nerdiest hobbies around. I bowl, I play video games and I’m all caught up in collecting those Pop! vinyl figures lately.
