BA's Notes:
I was turning right on Palomar to check out Moids when the blue car in the photo came flying into the picture -

It looks like the driver may have clipped the tail of the parked - FOR SALE - Porsche.

How did he end up hitting the parked car - who knows - I do know, however, that for any of us, just a slight distraction, just a moment of inattention, one's life may be forever changed.

BA is a granddaddy AGAIN!!

Introducing Baby Andrews, err, Nicolas Antonio Andrews, err "Spike" ...
"We're proud to announce the arrival of the newest Andrews!  Nicolas Antonio was born at 6:08 PM on Wednesday 9/19 weighing in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces, and at 19 ½ inches in length.  Nick loves to eat, is sleeping well, and has a mellow temperament so far.  Mom is feeling really good and getting rest with help from the grandmas.  Paige was happy to meet her little brother and is beginning to adjust to the new member of our family.  Nemo is pleased to have a second kid to slip him food when we aren't looking."

Today's Notes:
First of all - not too many of my rants lately - too caught up with son Kris' wedding plans, etc., but how 'bout this??
Another one of the stupid [my opinion] round-abouts in Bird Rock - this one at the corner of Bird Rock and Bellevue - are you ??@!! kidding me...
An existing 3-way stop, low traffic volume - I guess one of my neighbors figgered the best way to make the intersection more ??attractive???? by his / her casa is to spend OUR $$ on an absolutely [my opinion only] unnecessary round-about!
Must be nice to have a lot of time and $$ on one's hands!

Speaking of no time on one's hands, and certainly no $$ - here's my contribution to La Jolla surf history:
PM Photos 1: Include Guy Hanson | Patrick Ahern | Lucas | More...
PM Photos 2: Include Skippy | Rowe Would Go surviving a death defying take-off | More...
PM Photos 3: Include Roger surviving a death defying take-off | More...

I have often wondered if this Bird Rock street [Bellevue] were named after:
"Bellevue has long been a pioneer in identifying and categorizing mental illness, in training psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses and in formulating effective treatment options combining science and psychosocial support that allow even seriously ill patients to return to more normal lives."
I guess my wondering was correct

My opinion: Can you believe the waste of our tax $$?? Corner of Bird Rock and Bellevue - what a joke - maybe my world has gone insane??
It's Only $$!!!!
