Well, here is a reminder. At least make the appointment today for it. I am going to become your nag about this. Remember what CarolPa's husband went through a while back. I remember when my second husband had them. Not fun for either one of us.

Reading up on, keeping track of the Soberanes Fire.
InciWeb the Incident Information System: Soberanes Fire

We had to be around that area a few days ago. I'll tell you what it was eerie how still everything was. The sky was orange. The moon that night was actually red. Cal Fire all as far from L.A. are up here helping out.

The pull out areas on the road,local business banners have hand written, painted "THANK YOU ALL! for your help, all over them.

Locally they've set up base camps so the fire fighters can sleep in tents and get what they need. Medical, food, and more equipment.

Air quality is really bad especially at night. You open the door and can actually see and smell the smoke.

I feel bad for everyone. All because of someone who just had to start an illegal, and leave an unattended campfire.

I'm up to my neck in horse (and his product) at the moment. My horse sharer has decamped to Cyprus for a fortnight so I'm "doing" him every day. Only one visit a day needed fortunately as another friend is using him as a baby-sitter for her horse in the evening and brings mine in with hers late on.

My cherry tomatoes are a bit flat in flavor this year although very prolific, so I'm trying Martha's recipe:

Hopefully I can salvage them!

Looks more like you're watching Olympic men swimmers.

Me too! They not only can swim, but are quite easy on the eyes.

Well, you can't watch the swimming without watching the swimmers!
