Mt. Sierra College is a local, small college offering programs in Technology, Business and Media Arts and Design.
I took some certification prep courses here years ago and my experience was mixed although that wasn't entirely their fault. A positive was having courses with one of the best instructors I've ever had anywhere. He's since moved on to running his own training business.
-Sorry I missed the local blogger meetup today. Hope everyone had a good time.

These are located in Monrovia Canyon Park along the trail up to the waterfall. They are stamped with the year 1964 and were built by the L. A. County Flood Control District. Their purpose is to slow the water down, or break its momentum by making it drop over the edge, during times of heavy rains. Without them, the water can flow powerfully enough to take out everything in its path.
When they were put in, a road was built up to the waterfall for the trucks and equipment. As they worked their way back down the trail, the road was torn out behind them. The water has changed things so much in the canyon, it's hard now to believe it was possible for a road to be there.
I haven't seen it myself, but I hear that the fire department has a photo of one of their fire trucks parked at the waterfall.

Located across the street from the post office.
For a little change of pace, this one is 3 separate exposures blended using Photomatix. Photomatix is more well known for processing High Dynamic Range images (all the rage these days) but I really like the lesser known Exposure Blending option. You get a lot of the advantages of high dynamic range processing but with a much more realistic looking final image. The most obvious difference, you don't get those odd color changes.
Which one is best? It depends on the image and your personal preference. Tomorrow I'll post a photo using high dynamic range processing with some emphasis on the color in the image.

Here is an update on the progress being done on the long vacant building at the southwest corner of Myrtle and Colorado in downtown Monrovia. This is a side view from Colorado Blvd.
To remember what it used to look like, here's a photo from last November when the front was used for a Christmas mural.

Located on a side street off Old Town Monrovia next to the Krikorian Theatre. Stop by Baldwins Baked Potato or Moondogs hotdogs before or after the show. There's even a nice little patio out of the photo on the right hand side tucked in between the theatre and the building above.

These signs are at all the fire stations in Monrovia and all of Los Angeles County.
This means that you can go to a safe surrender site and give up a baby within the first 72 hours of birth, as long as the baby has not been abused or neglected, and there will be no arrest, judgement, names or questions asked.
A chance to put the baby first. Read about the law here.

Normally the first of the month is City Daily Photo Theme Day. The theme this month in "Sister Cities". Since Monrovia doesn't have a sister city, I didn't sign up to officially participate. That being said, since I couldn't use "Monrovia's Sister City", I'm still posting unofficially with "My Sister's City":
La Verne, Calif.
The photo above is of the La Verne City Hall. La Verne is located about 15 miles east of Monrovia and is the home city of my sister.
Visit all the participating sites in the official theme day!
Now, back to the telethon...
