    Welcome Pete! sorry for the clouds! This week is suppose to clear out. The thing that gets most people is the suburbs are streets and walls. We do have some green here. Mainly after our monsoon season. The Freeways do take some getting use to, people here drive like if they are not first they will melt. If it says 65 most do 75 or more then there are the ones that do 55 in the fast lane, The left lane, for you NON-Yanks, Fun time for all. And if you notice, Here everybody tells you about how long it takes to get somewhere instead of how far, and it varies as time of day and rush hour driving, and I bet you have not seen that many cars in one place and one time....
    Enjoy the Black cause they can't take it back............

    How'dy ya'll. Sure havin a swell time here in little ol' Lalaland ! We gone done the horse trail thing , up in the Palisade hills. I actually got essy going horse, more Model T ford thasn Mustang ( REAL happy about that ). Seems this horse was owned by Steven Spielberg, his kids horse ! The guide tells me ( after ) I mount him, that he was a show jumper with them . I am already mounted , tackled up and now nervous, no worries though , he just sauntered along , nice and slow.

    After that it was down to Santa Monica Pier, miles of sand , and hardly anyone on it !!! If thsat had been a beach in spain , it would have been standing room only, lol . Spent a few hours there and then decided to head back to hotel, I was getting a headache ( heat/sun ) was taking loads of water just in case.

    Driving !!!!!! Jings crivens an help ma boab !!!! Ya need eyes everywhere , and then some ! All I can say is thank gawd the GPS can say ''Recalulating'' , ''Recalculating'',

    Four times I took a wrong exit,lol. Hey , tell ya what though, from a European driving point of view, man is turning left here real interesting, lol. Anyways , I have survived my first juants on the Freeways, turn right onj reds and all the other whacky(races) things that ya'll do over here.

    Sun is splitting the trees, blue skies with a wee bity haze, life is good. Gonna chill out tonight, rest up and get ready for Monday FreewayApolis 500 !

    Ya'll be safe now. Have a nice day :-)

    Clear Skies

    Pete

    Welcome to the states Pete. I love it out west. There is so much to see. My favorite drive out there was to drive the 1( I think) up towards San Fran. It is truly gourgeous. Have fun and enjoy the coast. Cheers.

    I love it!

    Pete your making my days friend! Just about fell off the chair laughing.

    Buckle up and hang on tomorrow. Wait till about 9:30 am before you tackle the freeways! Get off of them before 2:30 pm and stay away till about 7:30 pm. (come to think of it you probably shouldn't be out after dark.)

    Supposed to be really nice and warm tomorrow. Enjoy!
