We'll be packing up today and sticking around the pool. We had a super lunch at Spencer's at the Mountain yesterday....a fabulous ribeye steak encrusted with blue cheese and wonderful salad and sorbet. A first class restaurant. We wish we had discovered it earlier. As always around here people watching is great. There were some old show business dears performing in the local Palm Springs Follies beside us and it was quite amusing to overhear some of the showbiz memories.
Goodbye blue skies, nice weather, no rain...
Welcome our home the wet coast...

We woke today to the unhappy news from Germany that Ingo had lost his battle with cancer. He was a lovely young man who was just about to begin his career in teaching when his cancer returned a few months ago. We will always have a happy memory of Ingo singing joyfully at the Huxley conference in Riga. Our hearts go out to our friends, Bernfried and Ellen, and Ingo's brother, Henning, at this very painful time. Ingo is now at peace and we hope you will find your own peace.

I bought a little book on hummingbirds that states that "the experts say they can't fly, but they do, they can sing, but they try, they can't perch, but they do. It appears they confound the experts by defying the laws of gravity and the laws of nature.
They can't smell and are attracted to the flowers stricly by colour...red being their favouite. On an average day the hungry hummer will go smorgasbording on about 1500 flowers...wow!

There are some wonderful songbirds around here. Last night we were sitting out on the patio and playing some Stephen Grappelli and Django Rheinhart and some bird really started responding to the music. I guess it was disappointed when no potential mate seemed to be about...
