It is a far, far better thing to have a firm anchor in nonsense than to put out the trouble seas of thought.

I don't know what's going on with the weather forecasts; over the last week none of them (Weather Underground, AccuWeather, Weather.com) seem to be predicting the high temperature correctly.  I'm looking at the thermometer right now and it reads 86 degrees, so I'm guessing it'll be closer to 92/93.

Fun Pic(s) of the Day

I've been meaning to post these since last weekend:  Cheryl and I were out in the pool and saw several dragonflies buzzing around.  So I put my hand up as if coaxing a bird to land on it and within a few moments, one of them landed on my finger!  So I grabbed my phone/camera and asked Cheryl to do the same.  Not only did they continue to land on her finger, but they kept stopping by for a rest more often as time went on.  Are we the dragonfly whisperers?  No, we're not that special.  Turns out this is fairly common dragonfly behavior; so if you're in your pool and they're buzzing around - give it a shot!  As long as you're not entomophobic.

(p.s.  Nails by Gaby.  Cheryl told me to say that.)

~ 10900 Ventura Avenue - reduced from $924,900 to $899,900.
~ 12841 Treeranch Road - sale pending.
~ 582 Cruzero Street - sale pending.  Think the market hasn't changed over the past 8 months?  This one came on the market at a list price of $545,000 back in January, 2015.  It took 11 months to finally sell the property for $476,000 (it closed on December 31, 2015).  Jump to July, 2016 - this one came on the market 3 days ago at a price of $549,000.  It received an offer in 3 days!  (Note:  It does look as though the current owners installed central A/C, something the home did not have prior to this owner.)

Have a great night and stay cool; it's still 93 degrees on our side of town.  We'll see you tomorrow for Big Preview Friday.

Regarding late-morning updates:  Many times throughout the week I'll log into the MLS at about 8:00 a.m. to see what's new.  However, some days (as was true today), there aren't any changes at that time.  As a result, I'll wait until later in the morning for some activity to pop up so I'll have something new to tell you about.  Just so you know.

Thanks to a new series of concerts that have arrived in Ojai, we saw the Rick Springfield concert with Maria and some friends at Libbey Bowl last night.  When "Jessie's Girl" came out in 1981, I was a senior in high school.  I liked his music, but wouldn't consider myself a "fan" (I never owned any of his albums).  But I have to say he and his band rocked the place out last night - it was great to hear some of the older songs - and some of the newer ones were good as well (especially the song "Down").  The vocals were tight and Rick sang right on key and to my ear, didn't lower the key of any of the songs.  I did suspect some electronic trickery with the background vocals - they were too perfect and sounded processed - but nevertheless, the band sounded tight and we had a great time!

At one point during the song "Human Touch" Rick came out into the audience, walking atop the seatbacks with the help of the audience.  He ended up right in front of us, and in fact, Maria spent about 10 seconds holding him up.  Those are her arms in the photo below (I didn't take the photo, I'm still slow on the draw when it comes to whipping out the phone - mine never left my pocket),  Maria was just a tad exhilarated after the encounter!

We had a weird July 4th:  On July 3rd our power went out in our neck of the woods at 5:30 p.m.  Text updates from SCE told us that we could expect power back at 7:00 p.m. that day.  Then it was moved to 8:00 p.m.  Then it was moved to 2:00 a.m. (now July 4th) and then again to 6:00 a.m. and finally to 3:00 p.m.  At that point we figured it was time to haul out the generator to save the items in our refrigerator and deep freezer.  Unfortunately, I hadn't fired up the generator since 2004, so it was no surprise (and I point the finger at myself for not maintaining it better) that I couldn't get it started.  We called around to several stores until we found a new generator, headed down to Lowe's in Ventura to pick it up (their last one in stock), and finally got back to Ojai to fire it up.  Orange power cords running everywhere, we were able to save everything in the fridge and deep freezer, get some power to our phones, and run the water circulator so we could take hot showers.

Unfortunately, we missed the parade as a result - as well as an afternoon party at Maria's.  The power came back on at about 2:30 p.m.  Although we felt our July 4th was somewhat ruined, we made sure to thank the people whose 4th of July was probably worse; the SCE workers that were out there trying to find the problem.  We were able to catch the fireworks and although they seemed slightly shorter in duration than usual, the Grand Finale was spectacular!  We love July 4th in Ojai!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
