    Yes, almond trees get old and need culling. Also in this era, the almonds are taking too much water, so I’m guessing that is part of it. Burns well. If we get rain again, sustainably, then the almonds will be replanted.

    I burn almond wood and oak. Even on the south central coast it gets damp and cool at night. I have a nice fire almost every night….. makes me happy!

    Also, OT, but does anyone know how long the fall fundraiser goes on? I keep getting the pix of Jane and the boys when I refresh and then have to scroll down. I can click ‘don’t show again’ forever, but no one hears me. Whatever.

    I know about those gasoline prices….. nice, for now. I’m trying to keep filled up before it all goes north.

    Wow. That sounds really purposeful. Real engagement rather than just check writing. I hope you will keep us informed as this develops at your school.

    And, Hi, All. Still having wonderful weather down here on the south central coast…. tho they say we may get some rain. Can hardly remember what rain is all about.

    Great! Why didn’t I think of that?! I feel better already. Off to buy some bolt cutters in the a.m.! Seriously.

    Do not give in to fear. The whole country is giving in to fear. What a mess!

    Oh, they have lots of signs pointing to the escape routes, but I can’t imagine 1300 housing units trying to get out on one or two routes….. as for me, I’d just as soon scramble up over the dunes and across the strawberry fields as to sit in a line of cars trying to evacuate!

    I’m never blase about earthquakes….. just refused to live in terror. I do try to keep prepared. Worst is that I live on sand and have read about liquifaction or whatever it’s called. I’m more concerned, at this point, about a tsunami. And mad as hell that the person who owns the sand dunes to the east of me has a big old chain link fence that prohibits us from getting to a safe zone.

    I’ve been through so many earthquakes in CA that I don’t really fear them. Also been through hurricane while living in Houston…. scary! Trees down all over the place and no electricity for days and days. Also been through tornado warnings while in Ohio…. Xenia came way too close! Spent the night in my basement sleeping on cots with my baby daughters over that one. Never yet been through a tsunami, tho there is a sign at the entrance to my street that screams “Tsunami Zone”….. so there is that.

    Hi, Tut. Hi, blue. No lava on the south central coast! Just a lovely late summer/early fall evening. Hope all are well.

    The best part is that they show homes of all prices and various locations. Really fun…… and even inspiring for those of us who might wish to live in another Paradise!

    My point was that I don’t believe he was calling you a cement head…. he certainly said that he wasn’t. And I just don’t know Mason to talk to commenters that way, so I’d hate for people to believe that he’s some kind of mean guy. That’s all.

    Hey, Tut. How’s Paradise? I really enjoy the house hunters Hawaii episodes that show all the lovely islands. Fun.

    Wait, wait, eCAHN……I’m sure he came back and said he didn’t mean you but the subjects of the discussion. If I’m wrong, I apologize, but I don’t think of Mason as one to offend commenters….. I think you misread him.

    Thank you for sharing this, Elliot. Sadly the right wing will not read it… or will twist it if they do read it. There are times when abortion is appropriate, but those whose belief systems rule their lives cannot think for themselves or hear divergent points of view. But, thanks anyway. I’d never heard of [...]

    Well, share if you will about whatever harvesting and putting up that you are doing….. I love to read about that. I always get enthused about making pickles or beef jerky or stuff. And how are your chickens?

    Hi, Suz. One of my grandtwins told his teacher that he’s not coming to school on Halloween because he doesn’t like all the scary stuff. That’s a boy who knows how to take care of himself! And, really, Halloween has become much scarier with zombies and technology…. not the same kind of innocent fun that I remember from my youth.

    This will be my first time voting by mail. I’ll be working in Santa Maria on vote-day, so I asked for a vote-by-mail ballot. I enjoy going to the polling place and seeing friends and neighbors, but I can’t count on being able to get home in time to vote, so I will vote by mail. But I really do not have any confidence that my ballot will be counted; so, I’m sad about that.
