|No matter where you go, you will love it....the Chumash believed their tribe was created on SCI, by Hutash the Earth Mother....I'm always sure God (can I say that?) lives there.|
well said Regan - thanks for reminding us because I totally agree <3

Cheryl - A beautiful and informative promo with a great history lesson. It's always nice to know how it all started and where the eagles finally settled down to nest. :><: :><: :wub: :wub:

...and a feisty chicklet that A75...as I recall the eaglet hopped out of the nest on its own accord when approached! :lol:

This is the poem that started the Red Hat Society... When I worked in Ojai at a tea room/gift store.. this framed poem was our #1 seller. We also had many teas for the ladies of the Red Hat Society and it was always fun to see what they were wearing... :D
by Jenny Joseph
WHEN I AM AN OLD WOMAN I SHALL WEAR PURPLE
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

Regan, My next trip to Santa Cruz will be to Scorpion for sure... might be fun to get a group together and you could lead the way....
ojailala - April 26, 2012 01:11 PM (GMT)
Peetie, thank goodness you are able to work at last.. fingers crossed that you stay well. :X:

Good morning, all.
Cheryl, beautiful opening! Thanks! <3
It is supposed to be a very windy day later today. I hate the spring winds here. I have to go for even more tests today. News yesterday was pretty good on some things, not great on others. I got so mad at one of the doctor I told her off. Every time I see her, all she does is prescribe more medications. She also tends to contradict what all the other doctors say and recommend. I know the doctors are as frustrated as I am trying to figure out what is wrong with me, but simply randomly prescribing drugs is not the answer – IMHO. So many of the meds have made things worse or caused unwanted side effects.
Have a great day, all. :}^

Cat stick to your guns - I think they do the same with my mom - "oh that didn't work - how about this one - see ya in a month :( "
Well here's what's been going on:
Fri after layoff - ES called one of his old bosses (they have 2 offices) and met with a friend which seemed to be positive - encouraging
Mon - 8am - old boss called ES to meet him on Tues
then LI office called and texted him to come in this week to talk too
then headhunter called about sending his resume to a place
Tues - met with old boss and it was super positive!
a friend at that office saw ES - called his wife who then called ES and took his resume for her office who is hiring
ES then emailed contacts thru AIA Board and several sent him a bunch of places to consider/apply to
Wed - called old boss for follow up - called LI office for appointment today
contacted a couple of the other companies
Thurs - got call from old boss who offered ES job in NYC
talked with LI office who doesn't want to compete with NYC office BUT has said that should ES decide to not return to City to work, they have a position for him and would still like to talk to him
(all by 8:30 this morning)
SOOOOOOO ES is going to accept the NYC job and should be back to work on Monday! :**: back with a former boss and co-workers! a place he liked and knows and with a few extra $$$ to boot! :ok: We're going to have lunch and discuss it a little further to be sure and then he'll call old boss this afternoon. There is a meeting tomorrow AM and they want to reassign staff to get gary into place! WOO HOO
Sooooo we're still not able to do the CA since it's all been so close in date :( but we are still going to OH for family visit and that's OK with us too.
Thank you all so much for your positive and encouraging posts - it truly did help us thru a very stressful, unexpected event in our life! (((GH))) can't say enough about that Cruzer Mojo - it gets the job done that's for sure!
NOW I can renew our IWS memberships - whew! :<<o>>: (and get my credit hehehe)

Can I go, too??!!
Well I booked the boat for Prisoner's Harbor. My thinking was, since it's my first time there, I will get to see the island from the boat on the way to Prisoner's Harbor - and take the hike and learn about the island from the guide. I didn't want to hike alone the first time since there are things there I am completely unfamiliar with - like scorpions! And what is a jumping cactus anyway??
However, going back the next day to Scorpion Anchorage is an option because I liked the idea of the visitor center - and I'm sure the ranch buildings would make great sketching subjects.
A visit to Ojai Raptor Center would be nice, too! :D

Cheryl, outstanding NAC post!!! :)^ I hope you do more - it would be a great theme to show everyone the nesting pairs and some of their history. Lots of great information and pictures in the Meet The Adult Pairs thread.

teacherlady - April 26, 2012 03:11 PM (GMT)
Yeahhhhh! Gary and Deb!
Gary's initiative, his reputation....added up to a new job in one week's time! And, as always, your teamwork!!! Congratulations! I'm so happy for you.
Jeanne, there is always a guided hike on Scorpion, either an IPCo naturalist, or an NPS volunteer. So, if you don't make it this time, you will enjoy it another time.
I'd be happy to go to Scorpion and share all I love about the Island anytime.
Again, great job NAC....all of you are so inspiring!
Artsy Mom - April 26, 2012 03:14 PM (GMT)
GaryThat must be almost a record in terms of getting a new job at a higher wage :**: :><: :><: :**:

Woke up and went to w*@k and it was raining. Now clouds are clearing and blue skies. Supposed to be nice, and warm this weekend.
Was up again last night til about 1am doing homework, and then up at 6:45 to go to w*@k. After class tonight I am going to bed nice and early!!!
Tonight is the last class for this GIS class I have been taking!!! I am soooo happy about that! Then I am on a break for 4 weeks :**:
Hope everyone has a nice Thursday. Its almost Friday!

Congrats to GARY....what an inspiration you are :)^ You went right out and turned your luck around....Congrats to you too Deb for staying so level headed in the face of such adversity....I can see why you two are together... :wub: You both do so much for others and in doing so good luck has come your way ...
I see people on the news and read stories of people that lost their jobs and people like you and Gary who "made lemonade out of lemons" which reminds all of us that one must remain calm under pressure in order to win. Each day I am thankful for my job, home, and friends(humans and animals) and stories with happy endings like you and Gary...Hurray :Hugs:
ojailala - April 26, 2012 03:24 PM (GMT)
Congrats Gary !!!

Artsy Mom - April 26, 2012 03:52 PM (GMT)
Deb these are a few :clk: 's of a seal pup who was on the beach on Balboa Island last year on May 25th. DH took lots of :clk: 's of it :D
It followed the camera guy around everywhere. The animal rescue was called because it appeared it was having some issues although there didn't seem to be any visible injuries. Don't know what happened to it :unsure:
I hope the little one you saw last night will be ok :X:

Lala sent you PM!
Peetie - glad you are doing better. Physical therapy seems to be helping my shoulder - I actually have a little more range, a little less pain. Hopefully I can get back to normal!! :X:
Cat - I hate when doctors get pill happy like that - they seem to have a designer drug for every little thing! Ugh! Listen to your body and trust your instinct and find a doctor who doesn't write you off like that - grrr! :angry:
susano - April 26, 2012 04:24 PM (GMT)
Still raining here in Studio City...weather is supposed to move to the East by noon :X: It's always a blast taking my daily four legged charges to the park in wet conditions...messy at best :umbr: :rn:
Hoping for sun B-)) on the WE nest so the triplets can be seen again :X: :X:
