I spent a lot of time in Santa Monica in the mid-1980s while doing my internship and residency at UCLA Medical Center in nearby Westwood. Always cool on a hot day, always a nice place to walk around. Brings back many good memories, thanks!

Re: Just over 2 weeks to Christmas. Be sure you get your letters mailed to Santa

I like it ! Simple and straightforward picture. Does Santa still read letters or are all of the elves taking requests via email now ?

The letters are triaged by elves, and the ones by naughty kids don't make his reading list. But all the good kid letters do!

They sure have an interesting mix for travel in Cuba...I loved the pictures of the old cars in your other post! In New York I saw bicycle taxis, too, but they were smaller and just for tours, not really for getting around.

Me too DrFumblefinger ! The Oxen pulling ploughs I've seen in Lancaster PA. but if you need a vase for Flowers (Birthdays) you get the bottom half of a 2 litre plastic Coke Bottle with wrapping paper around it. Looks quite good really ! But the bit that hurts is seeing folks suffer from curable things - like thyroid problems - that we take for granted now as being treatable. Homeopathy and Voodoo prevail... really !

Thanks for the link T&N. Bill Gates funds the School of Tropical Medicine here in Liverpool in its search for better treatment and a cure for Malaria. But tales of Save the Planet are all Hogwash. People who live in cool climates - like me - cant wait for the climate to warm up. When the Vikings discovered Greenland a thousand years ago they described it as a "Green and pleasant land with pastures and animals" - and now its just a frozen waste again ! Turn up the CO2 !

Your Dog-Friendly Guide to Santa Barbara

Jhon Issac ·
I recently got a puppy shortly after my graduation. Living alone without having anyone to give my endless love was starting to bother me. Plus, as far as the word goes- A dog is a man's best friend, it's very true. So I got myself some time off from work and decided to travel to Santa Barbara. But I was in a real pinch. I have a four-legged friend who needs constant attention and care. I didn't have anyone to leave him behind with, and I personally didn't want to. So I decided to embark on...

Originally occupied by Pueblo Indians, the "Kingdom of New Mexico" was first claimed for Spain in 1540 — 67 years before the founding of Santa Fe. Today its...
