New sun-beds!!!

Well, hardly new. The old ones are getting a make-over.
The beds are being picked up tomorrow July 30th and all 12 returned August 17th. Won't we look smart! The straps will be 'wrap around' and not held in place by plastic rivets which eliminates the amount of time Stuart spends repairing the snapped straps!!! This is a prototype. Guaranteed to hold 300lbs!!!! But don't hold me to that!!

It pissed down!!!


It absolutely pissed down with rain here in Palm Springs over the Wet 'n Hot weekend!!!! And it WAS Wet 'n Hot.

We almost lost the mountains, as you can see!!!
Can just see the mountains

Has it really been since April?

Say it ain't so!!!!

106f here today phew! Certainly the hottest day of the year. We took the Buzz Bus to Spencer's for lunch thinking it was our 7th wedding anniversary only to realise it's tomorrow!!! Oh well ... we won't take the Buzz Bus again in this weather. There was no shade on Indian Canyon waiting for the bus home and the closest stop to home was south of the hospital and that's quite a walk in the heat. Not complaining about the heat!

Huge fire south of Big Bear consuming 7,500 acres and 400 people having to be evacuated. It's so dry up there the forest is just, well, on fire.

The smoke is visible from here but the wind is keeping it away from Palm Springs for the time being.

Great weekend

It has truly been a lovely weekend. The weather was perfect, clear blue skies, no wind just beautiful. We have had visitors in from Germany and Nevada. Indianapolis, Alaska and Oregon. We had to say goodbye to John and Wim from England :( Hopefully we can drop by in August).

A very Merry Christmas

That's all folks!!!! A very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year to all our readers!!

Just myself and Stuart this year. Goose breast, roasted potatoes in goose fat. I bought myself 3 HUGE brussel sprouts which are a no-no for Stuart. And Creme Brulee. Yum. I've installed Skype so at 7am tomorrow morning I'll be able to see my mum and dad at my sisters house.

All the very best for 2 0 1 5. Please come back to visit.
