    Oceans beaches in Southern California are very different than the Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Those poor folks who live by our beaches do not wax nostalgic for the loss of cold, foggy summers here when they move elsewhere. :>) But I doubt they choose the Michigan Shores for relief! But we do have great Spring and Fall weather!

    No, not Pacific Palisades, the South Bay which faces Malibu across the bay - we could see it across the water on clear days. I went to college at UC Santa Barbara where the view from anywhere I could afford was not great, but the short walk to the beach was just fine with me.

    I didn't read the article but I saw the headline. It's funny.

    I'm gonna sue Stephen King because he doesn't make clear that when his books are thrown at someone's head, it hurts.

    I'm pretty tall, but I think you would have to be REALLY tall to go several inches below the belly button and still NOT be gynecological!

It's such a great time for good conversation and intense thought.....saying "Good Morning" to passing people.

    I am sure this is where I learned to have a morning ritual before I officially started my day; first, it was about sitting outside, relaxing....later, it became about completing my daily crossword puzzle before the chaos started. Ah yesss.....take a deep breath, and then go forward, grasshopper.
    I am glad to hear you truly enjoy the outdoors and mother nature! So many people, in my experience, think they like the outdoors and when they really meet it, do nothing but complain about the noise, the animals, even the trees being in the way! Just soaking in all that makes up the outdoors, from the sun, the air and the birds tweeting, can be very good for one's health!

    I find it peaceful and amazing and refreshing. I've always enjoyed the, seemingly, simpler things; my son....the more complex and dramatic and overdrawn, for him, the better. I'm hoping he will finally come around to my way of seeing things, one day. He is missing out on a lot, which I find sad.

    I enjoy walking the dogs, I love the air this morning, its not cold but crisp. The dogs know its warmed up and they love it..frisky.

    My son and his wife love camping, and have introduced my granddaughter to this.

    My dogs were chasing the power truck down the road today. Good to see them acting so frisky. Woke up yesterday to the sound of birds chirping. It was wonderful. Almost made me forget how cold and miserable I had been earlier in the week.

    Do you remember the first time you explained to your child that his/her grandmother was YOUR mother....just like you were his/her mommy? That was one of those precious moments. My son was standing between us, and it was hilarious the way his eyes were shifting from one of us to the other. He was definitely in awe!
