Juanita De Anda Parsons has the secret to surviving a century. Just have a good breakfast and don't stress yourself out, she prescribes. As Parsons sat among more than 125 of her closest friends and family members at her 100th birthday party, she looked back on her long life. She's been a sister to five, a daughter, singer, beautician, divorcee and resident of Glendale, but most importantly to Parsons and those who love her, she is alive and well. As a young woman, she and her sister, Chinta, were regular guest singers on the local radio station in Globe, Ariz.

I did something I've never done before in my whole life. No, not dye my hair. Last week my youngest son took a class at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena. Since the class was an hour and a half long for five consecutive days, I indulged myself by eating every morning at my favorite breakfast place in Pasadena, Marston's. In business since 1987, Marston's, located in an actual house on Walnut, offers tasty recipes such as French Toast encrusted in corn flakes and macadamia nut pancakes.

Claudia Peschiutta HILTON GLENDALE -- Breakfast came with more than just eggs, bacon and potatoes for those who attended the Glendale Chamber of Commerce's Friday morning function at the hotel. U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) was on hand to share his views and answer questions on everything from HMO reform to oil drilling in Alaska. Rogan said meeting with constituents at such events keep him from falling into the "beltway mind-set." "This is where I get my sense of are we working on things that matter, are the things we're working on really relevant in the real world," he said.

Truth be told, the broken, faded sign had kept me away for years. But my husband and I love novelty almost as much as we love our Saturday morning breakfasts together, so despite the B rating card in the window, we ventured into Jeremy's Restaurant. Am I glad we did. It's “our” spot now. It's not because of the food, though the food is unfailingly good. It's not even the decor, though the decor is shabbily charming. It's the whole package, really, including the curmudgeonly signs on the walls, the funny waitresses, the weathered faces all around talking about power sanders and long car trips, and the endless cups of diner-style coffee.

Studies abound on the importance of breakfast enabling students to concentrate on lessons rather than on grumbling tummies. Breakfast foods do not need to be cereal or eggs, either. Nontraditional, healthy foods for breakfast are better than nothing, said Chien-Wei Kung, Glendale Memorial Hospital dietary intern. "Breakfast increases concentration and keeps students more alert," he said. "Pizza can be good because of the dairy from cheese, carbohydrates from crust for energy, and nutrients from tomato sauce."

Robert Chacon One local restaurant has garnered top honors from a major Internet service provider for its unique breakfasts. America Online City Guide editors voted Dish in La Canada Flintridge the best breakfast in the Los Angeles area earlier this month. With menu items such as cornmeal jonnycakes, apple oatcakes, other seasonal pancakes such as pumpkin, daily whole-roasted ham and fresh-squeezed juices, apple-wood smoked sausages and bacon, and one-of-a-kind omelets, the costs are still comparable with traditional breakfast restaurants.
