The Shadow of Your Smile

One day we walked along the sand
One day in early spring
You held a piper in your hand
To mend its broken wing

the fire and floods are bringing out lawyers like vultures and everyone is suing Southern California Edison for starting the fire...ok so you might as well sue Mother Nature, too

look, it was a combo of things but mostly it was the dry winds in December spell TROUBLE!!

but after all the fire and fury, I'm happy to see Visiting Nurses and Hospice heap awards on the News-Press for their outstanding coverage, at least that's what the front page story said...the News-Press got the 110% Award from the nurses..then a little farther down the story it says so did everybody else from Noozhawk to  Edhat....

but during the disasters, the only reliable source of info (in Carp anyway) was the radio..the transistor COX TV, no paper, no internet....just the good ol' transistor radio

The News-Press was the worst coverage  of all...even their radio station was bad with the Baron wise-cracking instead of informing....

nurses, hear this: “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”

It's a Beautiful Morning

think I'll go outside for awhile...

gorgeous sunrise with the cold I see frost..the power lines look like glistening icicles...the ocean is so blue..after the rains it's just so nice

today the students are marching for their lives so I headed out to the fields and rivers...took in some fresh air then headed back by Carpinteria High....the kids were organizing a march so I parked and watched and took some pics..waved and cheered them on as they headed toward downtown

some idiot in Maine actually running for a House seat called Emma Gonzalez a "skinheaded lesbian"...the guy's name is Leslie so he probably has some issues...

this is the kind of ignorance these young people face -teabaggers cling to the 2nd Amendment but they can't stand the 1st Amendment

I have no doubt the kids will beat the shit outta these knuckleheads...

Night of the Iguana

Hannah Jelkes: Nothing human disgusts me, Mr. Shannon, unless it's unkind, violent

Florida...what a state! Gov Rick Scott shows some spine and signs into law some small but important gun control's a start but wouldn't you know it the NRA sues him! the feeble-minded old man Wayne LaPierre and his Stepford Wives sidekick Dana Loesche are gun-crazed...Dana, AR-15s are not dildos...

Florida will win the lawsuit and now we can dismantle the NRA which serves no purpose that I can see...

on the other hand, on the front page of the News-Press we got the Florida Fish and Game teaming with the University of Florida to kill iguanas for the same tired old reason: they are invasive and may pose a threat to native species

so the "biologists" are going around bashing the iguana heads in with hammers, bolt guns and whatever else they can find...

this madness reminds me of the Channel Islands pig killing (and every other species that got in the way) to "save" the native the islands are overrun with foxes!!

so, let's see where the US Humane Society and PETA are on this issue....

probably hiding under a rock somewhere

Plane Wreck at Los Gatos

(also known as "Deportee")

The crops are all in and the peaches are rott'ning,
The oranges piled in their creosote dumps;
They're flying 'em back to the Mexican border
To pay all their money to wade back again

Goodbye to my Juan, goodbye, Rosalita,
Adios mis amigos, Jesus y Maria;
You won't have your names when you ride the big airplane,

All they will call you will be "deportees"

Summer, fall, winter, spring

ok so the new norm is December is summer, January is spring, March is winter and the rest of the time is fall...

I've heard people say that evacuations are the new normal but I don't think so...even though I spent a restless night in a stuffy Holiday Inn during the last light rain, I realized that people are in the psychological phase called "cover our asses"..I was on the red evac map but never should have been so the Sheriff evacuated EVERYONE this time to cover his ass

an epic fire, weird weather and a 200 year rain won't happen again unless they forgot about a 300 yr rain which may be just around the corner...

but the creeks have been cleaned out as they should be every year..instead, the nut-jobs plant natives on the banks ...creeks convey water to the sea, that's the primary function..just let Nature provide the plants and frogs and the native-only cult leave it ALONE!!! you should have learned your lessons by now

the FULL WORM MOON-At the time of this Moon, the ground begins to soften enough for earthworm casts to reappear, inviting the return of robins and migrating birds—a true sign of spring.
Roots start to push their way up through the soil, and the Earth experiences a re-birth as it awakens from its winter slumber.

but March is in like a lioness...we got the moon, the snow and high surf...

tonight, it's lamb chops!!

Good Vibrations

she's giving me excitations...

ok you know things are bad at the News-Press when they have pictures of nobody and recycle the old Independent this case in the Life section, the Pet Psychic now has a column in the News-Press....further evidence that Wendy is in the throes of dementia...

and the Independent has joined the other local online news outlets to suppress reader comments!! now the Indie is just a bunch of wine tasters, beer drinkers and potheads...virtually worthless

the News-Press  article introducing the Pet Psychic starts like this: Laura Stinchfield remembers the first time she heard a pet's thoughts. She was a baby. The Yorkshire terrier allegedly said "you're so small" when Laura was a baby...

look, we're all small when we is babies so I don't think the dog was thinking that..maybe her mom was

besides, dogs can't think..they don't have thoughts....they have fleas

I think the News-Press should call this new column the Pet Psycho-Chick!
