I am Doris in N CA. Over time, this has become the "serious" blog.
Since the suicide of my son, I have become involved in suicide awareness and, yes, that creeps into the blog on a fairly regular basis.
This and that again
It's hot this weekend, very hot, heat warning until tonight, heat advisory until tomorrow morning. We turned on the A/C just after 8 am. It's going to be a long, hot day. I need to edit a whole memory stick full of pictures I took at Rodeo Beach a week or so ago, maybe later today. We went again on Friday - I live for trips to the ocean, especially the quiet beaches. But this time, we didn't spend all of our time on the beach, but walked up (and I mean UP - my shins are still hurting badly two days later) a hill to Battery Townsley. Another old military installation on the Marin Headlands. Not much of an installation, but at one time, it housed a huge gun, and it's on top of a rather steep hill. There's a road leading up to it, but it's blocked off at the bottom, so we walked. Wasn't a problem and makes for nice pictures from above. The first five pictures are all Battery Townsley, the next one is of an installation on another hill (not sure that's accessible), not quite sure what the next one is. The last two show Rodeo Beach, the buildings of Fort Cronkhite (http://www.militarymuseum.org/FtCronkhite.html) and the lagoon. My friend Marilee reviews movies and books on her blog regularly and it turns out there are quite a few movies we both like. I don't plan on making this a regular feature, but, just this once, I'll talk about a movie I watched last night. A German movie, called "Guys and Balls," about a gay soccer team. Funny, enjoyable, but, very obviously, not for everyone.
