Itchy!

As my brother-in-Law Earl used to say, "Leaves of three, let it be."

I can't remember when i haven't experienced that nasty rash of poison oak every Summer.

This unpleasant trio can cause 500 people to itch from the amount covering the head of a pin.

The oil can stay active from one to five years on any surface, including dead plants......oops!

Excuse me, i need to shower.

Vibrations

Towering

Towering clouds stretch through the low, middle and high cloud layers.

Have you ever played the cloud game where you try to see different shapes?

Do you see the cat's face?

"A"

Designer Philippe Stark literally turning yacht design on its head, with superstructure reminiscent of an upturned keel.

The 394-foot yacht "A" owned by Russian billionaire, Audrey Melnichenko costs 300 million, featuring 3-pools, bomb-proof glass, floor to ceiling mirrored rooms, one covered in white sting-ray hides.

With a crew of 37 people and a full tank of gas that cost more than $500,000, why stop at Malibu?

Consistancy

"I pray to be the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistancy rather than the highs and lows. --Drew Barrymore

Umbilical

A mother laughs our laughter, sheds our tears, returns our love, fears our fears, she lives our joys, cares our cares, and all our hopes and dreams she shares.  --Julia Summers

Back

Out on the road today, I saw a dead head sticker on a Cadillac, a voice inside my head said don't look back, you can never look back. --Don Henley

Cave

At Leo Carrillo State Beach, this cave is actually a tunnel, large enough to walk through to the other side and has the distinction of being the only cave on the entire Santa Monica mountain range.
