In the Midwest we had to wait until April or May for flowering trees. This Mediterranean climate is a gift giver and deeply appreciated.
If you are a regular visitor here you will notice a couple of changes to LIGHT BREEZES.
It is now easier to "follow" and be noted. In addition you'll find other blogs, connections, and a keen flow of the latest from Apple, Google and Microsoft- the new Big 3.
SHOOTING THE BULL
Our instant flash mob hungrily assembled again on the deck to continue celebration of Diane's birthday. Celebrating began last evening when Norbert entertained the lads and lassies with his extraordinary key board work and compositions in the back room of Brambles.
It is a group that can sustain several conversations simultaneously, while making short work of the ample and marvelous chow. There was a unison act in the birthday serenade and consumption of the ceremonial cookies. This is a crowd that enjoys.
All the while this guy grazed only yards away. I wonder if he knew that some of his kin
was being consumed within earshot. Consumed and appreciated!
It's a long shot and a bit grainy, but this grand abode towers over both the grazing and and chewing venues. The heirs of William Randolph Hearst, the man of the castle, have made us happy, because of the free range and naturally grazed cattle that becomes Hearst Ranch beef which finds its way into the busy mouths of the Friday lunchers.
Though in truth the only bull shooting is done by the instant flash mob.
And so a weekend begins in the Middle Kingdom.
BUT SOMETHING ODD THIS WAY FLYS
Some of the long time residents are wondering what's up with the gulls?
This weekend, we'll take a closer look.
Could a mystery be lurking?
As we used to say on TV, that and more on the way.
Plus coming soon THE PLANT POLICE.
See you down the trail.
