Picture of a Laguna Beach Sunset

I’ve been asked for a recent picture without sunglasses so I picked one out that was taken a few weeks ago when my Mom was visiting. She took this shot of me as the sun was going down.

That photo is on my deck in front of my house overlooking the Pacific ocean as the sun sets. While not every sunset looks as spectacular as this one, I am still overwhelmed each day I catch the sun going down! It’s been about 10 weeks since I moved to Laguna Beach and while it does feel like home, I am still awed by how great it is here!

I really lucked out and got a great house in a very special place!

Life in Laguna Beach, California

Today – April 28th, 2008 – is pretty hot although not as hot as yesterday. It hit the 90’s here in Laguna Beach yesterday and that’s unheard of in April. It’s in the 80’s today which is still hot for here by the ocean, but hey – it’s tolerable!

My friend Lorraine said the polar icecaps are melting. Uh oh…

I guess it’s a good thing I am 4 blocks from the beach and NOT right on the ocean! That way if the water rises I’ll still be in a good place.

Of course I hope that is not true, but hey – who knows! Crazy stuff happens in this world and I would not be too surprised if the climate changes and that affects people.

The good news is that while I am complaining about it hitting the 90’s yesterday is that we did not have it as bad as other areas in Southern California as many areas hit the 100’s and even up to 110! Yipes! That’s insane!

Not long ago I lived in Sherman Oaks and that kind of hot weather was not uncommon. Here at the beach however we expect it to be close to 70 most of the time. It’s quite a shocker to jump into the 80’s or 90’s.

Group 87 Live Video

Wow! This is a flashback to my past! I found a video clip of Group 87 performing live!

For those who aren’t familiar with Group 87 – this was a super group of sorts featuring Patrick O’Hearn, Terry Bozzio, Pete Maanu and Mark Isham. Man they could jam!

When I lived in the SF BAy Area we used to go see these guys regularly. In fact I do have a few audio bootlegs of them somewhere.
