From Don Henly in 1976.

Then the chilly winds blew down
Across the desert
through the canyons of the coast,
to the Malibu
Where the pretty people play,
hungry for power
to light their neon way
give them things to do

I still have the LP of the Eagles "Hotel California".

That was a good old song and album!


I started out with nothing and I still have most of it!

Though I live about 35 miles from the Woolsey fire, I have so many professional friends and colleagues that have been evacuated. Just another tragic episode in So Cal.

I am getting tired of hearing about the various celebs who have lost their homes in the fire. I feel sorry for them as they lose much too. However, many, though not all, of the celebrities can easily rebuild. The vast number of people who were burned out will struggle with the insurance payments and using credit to furnish their homes. No matter how "important" a victim of the fire is, that person is a victim.

but they serve a purpose.. annoying as it is, the celebrities will help keep national/world attention on this story long after the rest of the victims are forgotten.

...but you don't hear about the quiet ones that donate tons of money to help like Sandra Bullock.

Thanks for the heads up NannyBear... Maybe a little snow tonight before the bigger snow storm tomorrow afternoon/evening. NWS has gone as far as issuing a Winter Storm Warning for tomorrow. Never seems to end around here this year

The 3.5 'bed tax' must be a local thing in Big Bear. Nobody's sent us a bill. The only tax we pay is the Lodging Tax to SB County.

You know they are heavy. I’ve been carrying them around for weeks now. People ask me, “What’s that?” I say Ben told me to carry chains. Can I just keep ‘em in the trunk of my chicken?

But we could see a few snow showers or flurries this evening. Roads getting icy once again as temps drop so drive safe and ALWAYS carry chains. Can't say that enough but people still don't seem to get it.

Mike we have a couple waves coming through, a weak front overnight with the potential for a couple inches. The stronger system rolls in tomorrow afternoon into Monday morning. That storm brings the potential for around a half a foot or more. Full details [Click Here]
