Volume 49 - No. 50
By Friedrich Gomez
Famous New York newspaper columnist, Walter Winchell, once said, “California is a place where they shoot too many pictures and not enough actors.” California’s unique culture and its often-shocking lifestyle and alternative views have made the Golden State the most eclectic and eccentric piece of real estate in the Only in entire cosmos.

mindset, topsy-turvy priorities, and questionable cultural values inspire Jay Leno, former host of “The Tonight Show,” to joke: “A new candidate for California governor is running on a platform of taxing breast implants, which of course are California’s largest natural resources.” In actual truth, California spends more money on breast augmentation than any other state, with San Diego County among the top three in
California. With Americans spending more than $16.5 billion on breast implants just last year (2018), Jay Leno’s comical notion of taxing such a procedure could, in reality, create a substantial “war chest” (pun intended) in revenue. Only in California can such bizarre comedic material from standup comics, actually blur the line between humor and fact in our Golden State. Suddenly, the ridiculously

funny notion of a California gubernatorial candidate running on a platform of taxing breast implants – well, isn’t such a bad idea, after all – in California, that is. Aside from our home-grown, organic eccentricity and diversely-creative lifestyles, California is “officially the most linguistically diverse state in America,” with 220 different languages spoken (Source: https://statisticalatlas.com/state/California/Lang

What this essentially means, for many people, is that you can be told to “Go to hell” in 220 different ways . . . and not even know it. In essence, California is more than just a state; it’s a “state of mind.” True natives of California know how to laugh at ourselves, without being destructive. We are among the most resilient and sturdy of people, and wise enough to know that “humor truly is the best medicine.” And that a life devoid of humor is a life being measured and fitted for a strait-jacket.
I’m a California boy, born and bred, and I learned early-on, even as a 7-year-old kid, that our California culture was shockingly different from any other U. S. state. Far, far more different than, say, Nebraska from New York, or Oregon from Louisiana, Boston from Texas.
For example, where else can you brag that “The Terminator” (actor Arnold Schwartzenegger) was actually your state governor? And also, fellow movie star, Ronald Reagan? Some voters actually wrote in Jack Benny’s name
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The English Plural
We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes, But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes. One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese, Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice, Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice. If the plural of man is always called men, Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet, And I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet? If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth, Why shouldn't the plural of booth
(as a “write-in candidate) for California State Treasurer, during Ronald Reagan’s second four-year term as state governor (1971-1975).
Such real-life political antics by California voters at subsequent voting polls has even moved famous oddball American comedian, “Gallagher” (full name, Leo Anthony Gallagher, Jr) – who is well-known for smashing watermelons as part of his prop comedy act – to quip: “Living in California is like living in a bowl of granola, you have a mixture of fruits, nuts, and flakes.” It seems as though everyone has something to say about us California natives and our great Golden State.
Even America’s great, but eccentric, legendary author, Truman Capote (1924-1984), author of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “In Cold Blood” (both novels were made into celebrated films) had this opinion: “In California everyone goes to a therapist, is a therapist, or is a therapist going to a therapist.” Despite Mr. Capote’s cynical views on California, the New Orleans native became a California resident by choice, and enjoyed the unique culture until his death in Bel Air, a

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; Neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England. We take English for granted, but if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can
suburb of Los Angeles.
I learned a lot about my own California culture by just hanging around my two older brothers and their circle of friends. According to them, you know you’re a real native Californian because you’ve asked at least one female friend: “Are those real or fake?”
I also learned to enjoy our paradise weather, miles of beautiful white-sand beaches, endless panorama of palm trees, exotic landscapes with an abundance of drop-dead gorgeous bikini-clad beach girls with pierced-perfect navels, who cause many men to revert to stuttering. And of course, the obligatory closing of each summer’s day with breathtaking, giant orange sunsets. Along with our famous sushi restaurants, yoga classes, meditation groups, and jogging, we have a Golden Rule here in California which other states have stolen and copied, therefore, making our ‘sacred chant’ common knowledge. It is a cardinal rule when we Californians often stand-up and repeat together -- out loud, in group unison – at various California meditation classes: “GROWING OLD IS MANDATORY . . . GROWING-UP IS OPTIONAL.” make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking English should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.
In what other language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? We ship by truck but send cargo by ship... We have noses that run and feet that smell. We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway. And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, While a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language In which your house can burn up as it burns down, In which you fill in a form by filling it out, And in which an alarm goes off by going on.
All Californians live by this rule.
We also never stray far from our sense of humor, with some Californians – it has been alleged -- born with the congenital “tongue-in-cheek” condition.
Everyone is made to feel young in our Golden Bear State. Even though there may be an occasional ‘generation gap’ in word communication between young and old. Especially in today’s world of computers, emails, and social media. This was evident when I asked my friend Joey’s grandfather “Do you Tweet?” He answered me, “Not really. I just fart like everyone else.” And yes – to reiterate -- I’m a California boy, born and bred for mischief and fanciful tales.
BEACH BOYS, BIKINIS & PALM TREES. Along with our very own, inimitable sub-culture, we Californians have The Beach Boys, our very own home-grown, truly legendary rock ‘n’ roll band, formed from a garage, back in 1961. All original five members were born and raised in Hawthorne, California, less than five miles from the beach.

Twins Celebrate 90th Birthday Together! – It’s not very often, if ever, that you hear of twins celebrating their 90th birthday together, but it did happen recently in San Marcos. Twins Harry Roth and Helen Roth Sollman just celebrated this special occasion in San Marcos where Helen now lives and has lived for the past two years. When they celebrated their 70th, 75th, 80th, and 85th birthdays together, Helen went to Seattle on each of those occasions from Evansville, IN, where she had moved back to some years earlier. They were born in Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, MO, and were not expected to live, as each weighed under 3 lbs, but their father was determined the babies were not going to die, and of course they did survive to be able to share their birthday together.

THE BEACH BOYS PROMOTED CALIFORNIA’S LIFESTYLE TO THE WORLD. The Beach Boys became the biggest, most powerful, and most successful exporter of information regarding California’s sub-culture of carefree “fun in the sun lifestyle,” all wrapped in our own music and song lyrics, so that other countries could marvel at what they were missing.
The Beach Boys saturated the globe with California sub-culture song titles such as: “Surfin’ Safari,” and “Surfin’ U. S. A,” with the lyrics creating sensual images of beautiful white sand beaches, adorned by beautiful, tanned bikiniclad girls cavorting under the sun, against the backdrop of exotic palm trees.

Happy Holidays from Escondido Public Library – Holiday Hours are 9:30am-5pm on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve; closed on both holidays. Events at the Public Library for December include: 2nd Saturday Concert Series presents Ekaterina Bessmeltseva & Hugo Nogueira on Saturday, December 14, from 3pm4:30pm, in the Turrentine Room, and is appropriate for all ages. The repertoire of this recital consists of nineteenth-century music originally written for classical guitar and piano. Interestingly enough, there were quite a few composers who wrote music for this uncommon instrumentation. Although composers such as Mauro Giuliani (Italy), Ferdinando Carulli (Italy), and Anton Diabelli (Austria) has been recognized as a representative depiction of their epoch, it is still difficult to find a concert built on the repertoire for guitar and piano. Hence, this project is based on disseminating such marvelous music.

Households around the world were filled with The Beach Boys music, and danced in record numbers at their soldout international concerts. Foreigner sang the words in unison to the global favorite Beach Boys song “Surfin’ U.S.A” wherein San Diego County was mentioned an unprecedented five different times! Within those lyrics, favorite surfing areas were clearly named from Hawaii to Australia to Malibu. But only San Diego County was mentioned for having more legendary surfing areas (5) in the worldwide recording: Del Mar, Trestles (in San Onofre), Swami’s (Encinitas), San Onofre (State Beach), and La Jolla.
In the lyrics within “Surfin’ U.S.A.” which was the Beach Boys’ live concert anthem song overseas, and which brought fans to their feet, San Diego was clearly the place to visit!
Rabid fans in record numbers, in several languages, from around the globe, suddenly had “California Dreams,” with different colored pins stuck on wall maps, showing San Diego County’s five surfing “hot spot” regions – all planned within their tourist itinerary-plans.

California tourism peaked as these picturesque songs canvassed every time zone and hemisphere with irresistible imagery, all greatly influencing die-hard fans across England, Asia, the Orient, Europe, Africa, Latin and South Americas, Australia, to come join the fun – California style. The Beach Boys songs, with their international impact in faraway lands, was enormous. UNLIKE ANY OTHER MUSIC GROUP, THE BEACH BOYS SANG OF THEIR CULTURE.
While other rock groups, such as the Beatles, sang a range of songs, they never (emphasized) their English roots and folkways -- The Beach Boys did. They sang, specifically, about Southern California’s culture, mindset, social values, and surfing adventures. Their overall cultural message was clear, seductive, and profoundly influential, in its impact on foreign soil. The message being that you don’t even have to surf to enjoy the tropical California lifestyle, beaches, and summer fun. All you need to do is just pack your bags, fly over and experience it firsthand. Immerse yourself, and vicariously enjoy the panoramic vistas of heart-throbbing

But all were surfing aficionados.) Such compelling influence on other nations caused musicologists and social historians to opine: “Their (The Beach Boys) influence spans many genres and decades, inspiring the development of social movements within other foreign cultures.” SEXY BEACH BUNNIES, FUN IN THE SUNSHINE & PALM TREES IS NEVER A “HARD SELL.”
The song titles, alone, were provocative, lustful, and irresistible in their ‘teasingimagery’ across all cultures, worldwide. The release of such titles as, “Surfer Girl,” and “All Summer Long,” as well as “I Get Around” created a sensation overseas, with these three exact song titles all topping the music charts in the United Kingdom during the same year of 1965.

The nonprofit Preserve Calavera announced Friday it has filed a lawsuit challenging Oceanside’s approval last month of North River Farms, a 585-home development proposed for the city’s rural Morro Hills area.
“We have long referred to this as the ‘egregious North River Farms Project,’” said Diane Nygaard, president of Preserve Calavera, in a news release. “It represents the worst kind of sprawl development, placing dense housing where it was not planned, where there is inadequate infrastructure, and where the local community ends up paying a high price.”

An influx of foreign tourists, all chompin’ at the bit, and vicariously singing the lyrics of their favorite Beach Boys songs, all wished to now witness this vibrant California palette of colorful experiences and sensual delights, breathtaking seascapes, and exotic topography where snow skiing, surfing, and mountain hiking can all be experienced, literally, in the same day! All wrapped in carefree songs. No longer just a fanciful dream, but a reality. By July of 1964 “All Summer Long” became the top hit in the U. S.
But the world was now ‘crashing’ the California party. Lustful titles such as “Kiss Me, Baby” and “The Warmth of the Sun” all were music-and-song with the California ‘scene’ in the backdrop. In time, The Beach Boys would have over 80 California songs hit the top music charts around the planet.

In Japan, The Beach Boys’ hit single from their album, “A Postcard from California” created a historic, and unprecedented, impact on the entire nation of Japan, with the album deeply affecting all the Japanese people, across all ages, demographics, and ideologies, as no other American song, before or since. Why?
Because, The Beach Boys album “A Postcard from California” contained a charity-raising single called “Don’t Fight the Sea,” to help aid the victims of the deadly 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami victims. The 9.1 magnitude earthquake, at a depth of 15.2 miles, created 30-foot high waves and was the largest and most ferocious earthquake ever to hit Japan, resulting in more than 120,000 buildings

The World Bank estimated the economic damage at $235-billion to be the costliest natural disaster in world history. Almost 16,000 Japanese people were killed with 2,500 missing, and resulting in more than 150,000 human evacuees who lost their homes.
The SoCal Beach Boys never forgot their loyal following of fans in Japan, so their charity single to raise financial help was a ‘musical bouquet’ lovingly tossed to the Japanese people. It was a rare, shining moment for California’s own, proud native sons, to express their sentiment to the Japanese Nation: “We love you. And we shall never forget you during your time of need. Now or forever.”
Music suddenly became more than just frivolous fun in the sun. It became a real, visible, tangible instrument of “love and compassion,” with an unexpected healing power for a nation of suffering souls.

According to official U. S. Tourist statistics, foreigners visiting from around the world, rate the following American states as the most popular places to visit, in transmission order: 1. California. 2. Florida. 3. Nevada (viz. Las Vegas). 4. Texas. 5. New York. In the distant past, New York was most popular due to its point of entry for overseas immigrants. But this has greatly changed.

World, but, these newly-established immigrants now dream of continuing westward, out of the east. As the author records, “There is a whole quality of hope here (in the west) and that the future is still open-ended. In the way that people (used) to come to America.”
In her final analysis, which world polls and U. S. statistics confirm, Carolyn See writes: “California is the repository of America’s dreams, a place that is to America what America is to the rest of the world.”
How did all this global “California Dreaming” concept begin? And why? Let’s take a brief look back in time, at the beginning.
POWERFUL WORDS THAT MOVED A NATION.
Although famed author and statesman, Horace Greeley (1811-1872), himself, never claimed he originated the phrase, “Go west young man, go west,” it was Greeley’s version which became, by far, the most repeated. And the most famous. To the point where it, literally, moved a nation of people towards the Pacific. Westward migrations within our own United States are nothing new in our history books, with significant westward migrations recorded as early as the 1830s and 1840s. However, Horace Greeley’s pronouncement, somehow, was a different kindling for the fires that burned within Americans who dreamed of a better life in the Golden Bear State known as California.
As founder and editor of the New York-Tribune (one of the greatest newspapers of its era), Greeley printed a single sentence as part of his editorial column, on July 13, 1865, which simply said: “Go west, young man, and grow up with the country.”
Unlike previous announcements expressing the same sentiment, Greeley’s clarion via the powerful New YorkTribune, gave his opinion vastly, greater exposure. That simple piece of advice would prove historic, effectively changing the human and cultural landscape of America forever. As chronicled by U. S. historians: “The phrase captured the imaginations of clerks, mechanics, and soldiers

Last week I gave the keynote speech at the State of Reform Health Policy Conference in San Diego, one of the largest, most diverse gatherings of health care executives and policy makers in California. Health care is one of my passions, and as a member of the Assembly Health Committee, I was thrilled to be invited.
Mental health is a major topic. One in six California adults experience some form of mental illness, and two-thirds of children and adolescents suffering from depressive episodes go untreated. More empowerment for locals on the front lines of mental health treatment is a must. This year, legislation I authored to strengthen local mental health boards became law. California faces a shortage of 4,100 primary care clinicians and will have only two-thirds of the psychiatrists needed in 2030. Two bills that would help by expanding the health care workforce and reducing the disparity in mental health services stalled in 2019. We’ll be revisiting these issues next year. Addressing substance abuse is critical. Preliminary data indicate that more than 2,300 opioid-related deaths occurred in 2018 alone. Despite demonstrated success of medication-assisted treatments
(MAT), far too few MAT providers have been certified. Despite overwhelming bipartisan support, my MAT funding request and 2019 bipartisan legislation stalled, but the problem isn’t going away. Health care and homelessness are directly linked. Addressing the issue requires interdisciplinary solutions involving housing policy, public safety, human services and more. Though homelessness results in three deaths per day in Los Angeles alone, it receives less attention than other, less deadly state emergencies. An all-hands-ondeck effort will be necessary to help resolve this major public health/safety issue.
Health care, homelessness, substance abuse – are among the state’s most pressing policy issues. California must make it the priority it should be, with much work necessary in 2020. \ Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

More Bike Lanes!?
I sound like a broken record, but SANDAG is up to their usual tricks. The latest update comes from SANDAG’s staff and their proposal to use an extra $90 million on bike lanes. Time and time again, I’ve sat in our SANDAG meetings and heard how the road projects the voters were promised, can’t be fulfilled due to a lack of money. A few months ago, we passed an agreement at SANDAG that prioritized SR-52, SR-67 and SR-78, yet when it comes time, this new money is going to bikes.
So far, SANDAG has spent $123 million on the Regional Bike Plan for San Diego County. They’ve only completed 8.8 miles, which breaks down to a little under $14 million per mile, FOR BIKE LANES! I am not anti-bikes, I even understand that in certain areas people can use them to and from work. But, less than 2% of the population uses bikes as their means of trans-
portation. While about 96.5% of people use the highways and roads. Choosing to spend $90 million for bike lanes over roads and freeways is a decision for people to feel good about and not about doing the right thing for San Diegans. Luckily, Chairman Steve Vaus was able to delay the vote on the bike lanes to a later date, but this will come back again. No matter when we vote on this matter, we need to continue to prioritize the 52, 67, 78 and reduce gridlock. Until then, I will not support any bike lanes.

returning from the Civil War, many of whom moved west to take up a homestead.” And they did, in steady streams -- nonstop -- along with occasional “spikes” of historic “relocations,” such as found during the Dust Bowl migration to California during the Great Depression in the 1930s from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico and neighboring states, with some 2.5-million Dust Bowl refugees emptying out of the Great Plains States. EARLIEST CALIFORNIA DREAMS BEGINS.
Although ‘west’ encompasses a large expanse of U. S. states, it would be California -- bordering the great blue Pacific waters – that would prove the most magnetic and, thus, the most populated. The earlier dreams begat from the California Gold Rush of 1848 and 1849 (which preceded Horace Greeley’s westward advice) were suddenly resurrected and renewed in homesteading out west. Today, with its nearly 40-million residents, California has a bigger population than most European countries. Imagine that, a single U. S. State vs an entire country in population. It is most sobering to translate those same stats in an oblique way: Of the 44 countries in Europe (recognized by the United Nations), only eight have populations larger than the state of California.
And if the dreaded supermega-size-earthquake, affectionately called “The Big One” in Hollywood disaster films, ever slices half of the Golden State into the Pacific Ocean, the remaining half of the state would still be more populated than many countries in Europe. THE BEAUTY OF CALIFORNIA GIRLS CONTROVERSY.
The huge blockbuster song “California Girls” by The Beach Boys, and released on July 12, 1965, touted California girls as the most beautiful in the entire world. The song lyrics risked losing fans outside of California, possibly offending and alienating loyal Beach Boys fans with such lyrics as: “I’ve been all around this great big world, and I’ve seen all kinds of girls, but I couldn’t wait to get back to the States, back to the

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
King of Oil – America’s Richest Man -- Ever
John Davison Rockefeller Sr., was one of the original six moguls who built America and was the world’s historic wealthiest ever at an estimated $409 billion (in 2019 dollars).
2 percent of the national economy. In 1913, his peak net worth was estimated at $336 billion (inflation-adjusted for 2007 dollars). Rockefeller spent the last 40 years of his life in retirement at his estate in Westchester County, New York.
His fortune was mainly used to create the modern systematic approach of targeted philanthropy. Rockefeller’s foundations pioneered the development of medical research and were instrumental in the near-eradication of hookworm and yellow fever in the United States.
Rockefeller was a devout Northern Baptist and supported many churchbased institutions. Rockefeller adhered to total abstinence from alcohol and tobacco throughout his life. A faithful congregant of the Erie Street Baptist Mission Church, he taught Sunday school, and served as a trustee, clerk and occasional janitor. Religion was a guiding force throughout his life and Rockefeller believed it to be the source of his success. He also was considered a supporter of capitalism based on a perspective of social Darwinism and was quoted often as saying: "The growth of a large business is merely a survival of the fittest.” Rockefeller often offered his shares as payment for a business, and quite a few of whom became very wealthy as managers as well as owners in Standard Oil. They include politicians and writers, some of whom served Rockefeller's interests, and some of whom built their careers by fighting Rockefeller and the "robber barons".
Controlling the American petroleum industry made John D. Rockefeller one of the so-called “robber barons of the 19th and 20th centuries. He controlled first kerosene, then motor oil and gasoline.
Rockefeller was born on July 8, 1839. He controlled the industry for all of his adult life. He became a business magnate, industrialist, and philanthropist. Rockefeller is widely considered the wealthiest in modern history.
In 1867, at age 28, with a company owned by Rockefeller, his brother, and two partners, they formed Standard Oil, but instead of drilling for oil, they concentrated on refining.
As the need for kerosene and gasoline grew, Rockefeller's wealth soared, controlling 90 percent of all oil in the United States. Oil was used throughout the country as a source for fueling lamps until the introduction of electricity and as a fuel and lubricant after the automobile. the of invention Furthermore, Rockefeller gained enormous influence over the railroad industry, which transported his oil around the country. Standard Oil was the first great business trust in the United States.
But in 1911, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Standard Oil must be dismantled for violation of federal anti-trust laws. It was broken up into 34 separate entities that included companies that eventually would become today’s Exxon/Mobil, Chevron and others. Some of them still have the highest level of revenue in the world. Individual pieces of the company were worth more than the whole and shares of these doubled and tripled in value in their early years.
Rockefeller became the country's first billionaire with a fortune worth nearly
By the time of his death in 1937, Rockefeller's remaining fortune, largely tied up in permanent family trusts, was estimated at $1.4 billion, while the total national GDP (Gross Domestic Product) was $92 billion. According to some methods of wealth calculation, Rockefeller's net worth over the last decades of his life would easily place him as the wealthiest known person in recent history. As a percentage of the United States' GDP, no other American fortune — including those of Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, or Sam Walton — would even come close. At age 86, Rockefeller penned the following words to sum up his life: I was early taught to work as well as play, My life has been one long, happy holiday; Full of work and full of play— I dropped the worry on the way— And God was good to me every day.
SCAG SEZ: Think about it -- a lawyer is who you get to help you get what's coming to you. – Cecil Scaglione, Mature Life Features. COURT QUERY -- Judge: "Mr. Quinn, I have reviewed this case very carefully, and I've decided to give your wife $775 a week." Husband: "That's very fair, your honor, and every now and then I'll try to send her a few bucks myself."
FINAL WORDS -- On Ribbesford, England cemetery tombstone: "Anna Wallace -- The children of Israel wanted bread, and the Lord sent them manna. Old clerk Wallace wanted a wife, and the Devil sent him Anna."

cutest girls in the world – I wish they all could be California girls . . .”
The song’s release could have been a promotional nightmare for the group’s marketing team, because the lyrics clearly mentioned East coast girls, Southern girls, and even MidWestern girls . . . as not even holding a candle to the goddesses who resided within California.
Remarkably, the song was an instant hit in both domestic and foreign markets! The song is now considered by world music critics to be “emblematic of the 1960s California sound era.”
The Beach Boys’ “California Girls” hit recording was included in “The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” as well as being inducted into the “Grammy Award Hall of Fame.” And Rolling Stone Magazine ranked it among the “Top 500 Songs of All-Time.” Unlike The Beach Boys, some high-profile VIPs were not as lucky in citing the California girls as the most beautiful on Earth. Such opinions can be viewed as divisive and egobashing to listeners. Such was the unfortunate case with
America’s most powerful and most popular radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh. With a staggering number of over 256 million listeners, the Rush Limbaugh Radio Show has the highest-rated radio show in the entire United States – by far. With U. S. Presidents as frequent live radio guests, and topics of discussion on such luminaries as Pope Benedict XVI, Limbaugh’s massivelyinfluential airwaves originate near his home in Palm Beach County, Florida, where he has lived since 1996. It was here, on the Rush Limbaugh Show, that the scene of the great “California Remark” took place.
Thinking his radio’s studio microphone was turned off, Limbaugh quipped ‘live’ on the air: “Have you ever noticed that the farther west you go, the prettier the girls become?”
What a bombshell that proved to be. Limbaugh, who was ostensibly speaking, particularly, of California girls, quickly apologized to his loyal nonCalifornia fan base, which were now deeply offended (by comparison) from all over the United States – outside the boundaries of California – especially from New York, where Rush Limbaugh’s radio show first originated at WABC New York City.
Though he profusely apologized, it was too late, the whole world now knew of Limbaugh’s viewpoint on feminine beauty as being unmatched in the Golden Bear State of California. In the wake of this verbal faux pas, there would be vestiges of the lyrics on The Beach Boys’ California Girls recording, hauntingly omnipresent in the minds of music fans: “The West coast has the sunshine, and the girls all get so tanned . . . I wish they all could be California girls . . .” Rush Limbaugh’s apology was akin to trying to put squeezedout toothpaste back into the tube. It is humanly impossible to recall words.
Nonetheless, I always admired Mr. Limbaugh, and still do. Such personal opinions are God-given rights. In the opinion of many, honesty in this great nation of ours is in serious jeopardy. CALIFORNIA DREAMING.
California’s music, culture, cuisine, lifestyle, Hollywood movies, television shows, recording industry, trend-setting lifestyle, eccentric and controversial millionaires, all the way down to our coastal beaches, palm trees, sunshine, and stunning girls in string
bikinis – all compose a mosaic of America’s most quintessential dream factory.
Simply put, California remains – more than any other state -the matrix, the purveyor, the world’s greatest assembly-line for producing the most soughtafter dreams, not only in America, but for many people throughout the entire world who wish to visit this most populated U. S. state in all America. It is here, where the motion picture capitol on the planet sits, which entertains, and enthralls billions with film-making, providing a fantasy world of refuge in which all of us may escape from the drudgery and stress of life.
California’s lifestyle, customs, folkways, and unique living may not be for everyone, but if freedom and democracy has its way, and majority rules – without the shackles of tyranny and enslavement -- then California remains the favorite place to visit among world travelers who wish to exercise their right and dignity of freechoice.
HOW MANY NUDE BEACHES ARE IN CALIFORNIA? A. Three nude beaches in

California. B. Five nude beaches in California. C. Seven nude beaches in California. D. Ten nude beaches in California. No doubt that California has a cutting lifestyle. Correct answer is “D.” There are at least 10 optional-clothing (or nude) beaches in the Golden State, from north to south.
San Diego County has three official nude beaches: Blacks Beach near Torrey Pines. Boneyard Beach at Encinitas is one of the most private nude beaches in California. San Onofre State Beach has a “clothing-optional” section or part of the San Onofre State Beach, which is accessible by taking Trail No. 6 and walking south at the bottom of the trail. To repeat, NOT the entire San Onofre State Beach is “clothing optional,” only a portion of it, as is the case with other state beaches that have “clothing optional” guidelines. San Onofre State Beach is described on one website thusly: “It’s a wonderful, sandy beach, and a great spot to unwind without the constraints of your swimsuit.”
San Diego County’s three recognized “nude” or “optionalclothing beaches” are among the most popular and are even listed as among the “Best Nudist Resort Beaches” or “Best Topless Beaches” in the entire United States. OF THE STATES LISTED BELOW WHICH HAS THE YOUNGEST AVERAGE AGE? A. New York. B. Florida. C. Oregon. D. California.
Correct answer is “D” for California. Average age in the state of New York is 38.7 years old. Average age in Florida is 42 years old. Oregon’s average age is 39.3 years old. The Golden Bear State of California has an average age of only 36.5 years of age. (Source: U. S. Census Bureau, 2017 American Community Survey.)

The Garden’s annual holiday event for the community, Botanic Wonderland, will be held throughout December in the new Conservatory. Throughout the month, visitors of all ages can enjoy the treasure trove of unique plants that can only grow in this incredible new space against the backdrop of amazing holiday lights and horticultural displays.
“There is nothing more exciting in the botanical garden world than the opening of a brand new conservatory,” said Dr. Ari Novy, President and CEO of San Diego Botanic Garden. “The Dickinson Family Education Conservatory will allow San Diego Botanic Garden to conserve critically endangered plants while educating the community about the wonders of the plant kingdom. It is a resource for every age group in San Diego County.” The Conservatory was designed by Green House Works of Kansas City and Daneen Powell Atelier and domusstudio, both of San Diego. It consists of a one of a kind steel frame with glass panels made by Deforche, a Belgian company with expertise in quality construction of botanical conservatories. The Conservatory contains a state of the art climate-controlled, reverseosmosis fog system and boiler radiant heated floor, to help foster growth of the tropical plants it houses. It also contains specialized roll-up doors, roof vents, fans and ceiling shades all connected to an automated control system for optimal plant care. The Dickinson Family Education Conservatory is designed to serve as a community meeting space where people of all ages can connect with plants and nature, fulfilling the mission of the Garden. Named after the charitable organization that pledged the initial $1M challenge grant for its creation, The Donald C. & Elizabeth M. Dickinson Foundation, this new education and events space will enhance the mission of the Garden “To inspire people of all ages to connect with
plants and nature.” For rental pricing and more information on the Dickinson Conservatory, visit our website at: SDBGarden.org/conservatory.htm. The San Diego Botanic Garden is located at 230 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas, 92024; SDBGarden.org.

Project Wildlife Gets Influx of Seabirds After Rain - San Diego Humane Society is preparing for another round of rain. With the recent rainstorms in San Diego, Project Wildlife has seen an influx in seabirds who have washed up from the ocean. The rain and wind causes weaker seabirds to become beached. The seabirds are too weak to get past the waves into the open ocean, and fluctuating ocean temperatures cause the fish they feed on to dive lower than normal, making it harder for the birds to eat. Project Wildlife staff has been caring for Western Grebes, Surf Scoters, Fulmars, Loons and a Blue-Footed Booby this week at the Chuck & Pilar Bahde Wildlife Center. The birds have been transferred to SeaWorld for further rehabilitation. Tips for the Public - If you see a seabird in distress, please contact a life guard, San Diego Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement at 619-299-7012 (press 1) or SeaWorld (1-800-541-SEAL). If the animal is in immediate danger in an area that is easily accessed, wrap the animal in a towel to cover the bird’s head and protect yourself from talons. Then place the bird in a box or pet carrier and transport to Project Wildlife (5433 Gaines St. San Diego, CA 92110). Do not try to feed sick or injured birds. You are Incredible; Thank You! – The San Diego Humane Society, in their letter to Friends of the Animals, thanks you for your generous support; Giving Tuesday was an incredible success for animals in need! You helped the Humane Society raise more than $100,000 to save the lives of homeless pets and wildlife in our com-
munity. Best of all, donations are being matched up to $200,000 by the Resource Partners Foundation, so you’ll make twice the impact. Your gift gives hope to thousands of vulnerable animals and shows them they are not alone this holiday season. Thank you for ensuring that we can provide the shelter, medical care and second chances that each one deserves. From the nearly 50,000 dogs, cats, guinea pigs, humming birds, rabbits, and more that we’ll help this year, thank you! Contact the Humane Society at 619.299.7012.

And that is a shame.
Big ol' hunk of a man .. . kind . . . gentle . . . and talented. I called him Norwegian.
But we don't really know if he was Norwegian or not, because Troy was adopted. No matter.
We Norwegians would be proud to claim him as one of our own.

Social Butterfly Shares Her Dear Santa Letter
A Focus on Disability Inclusion at Disney, the BBC and Sundance – RespectAbility was honored to participate in the Walt Disney Studios’ networking mixer recently. Born This Way star Sean McElwee testified about his business Seanese on Capitol Hill this week, advocating for more business opportunities for jobseekers with disabilities. Variety’s Tim Gray covers three Oscar-worthy disability-inclusive films: The Peanut Butter Falcon, Give Me Liberty and Motherless Brooklyn. If you missed it earlier this week, we are partnering on a Canadian campaign pushing for more accurate representation of people with disabilities in media. Forbes covered more of our work in Hollywood with the studios. The BBC made major new commitments to be more inclusive of people with disabilities in front of and behind the camera. Peter and Bobby Farrelly are being honored for disability
Building Family Identity
The pace of our lives and the opportunities available today are so numerous that it’s easy to get pulled away from what really matters. December is one of the best times of year to reflect and refocus on the things that really matter. And it is the best time to build something we don’t think about very often, and that’s family identity. Having a sense of family identity means I know who I am and how I fit into this world. I’m part of the Smith family. Or the Jones clan. “We do XYZ together!” People who have a sense of family identity tend to have better self-images, look at life more hopefully, and be able to take more risks. With that in mind, I’d like to suggest a new family identity-builder
Traditions are what bond families together. We remember good times together, but we especially remember repeated good times we do together year after year after year.
One tradition of my family’s best traditions was attending church as a family on Christmas Eve. We stopped when my parents divorced, but the memory lives on.
Attending Christmas Eve services could be a very positive tradition for you and your family as well. Check out church websites for Christmas Eve service times, dress up (a little bit) and experience the wonder of the Christmas story together. You’ll find yourself slowing down, bonding together, and drawing closer to God. What could be better? New Song Community Church will be holding Christmas Eve services at 4 and 6 p.m. 3985 Mission Avenue. You and your family are sincerely invited to fill a row with us!

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
Last week I concluded the three things that keep me up at night – Housing, Budget and Transportation. I will keep you posted as updates occur. But if you have a specific question, send me an email at email@example.com Also check the city website for our committees that deal with these issues and join one if you want to get more engaged.
As some of you may know, there is an initiative to have all the North County cities send two of their electeds to work on homelessness from a regional perspective. I was elected the chair of that group and so I think it is worth discussing, because again there is no easy fix. I may repeat a few things but it’s worth it.
As I stated earlier we have a housing challenge. But we also have a housing challenge when you think about homelessness. Now when someone uses that word it conjures up an image but it is more complicated than that. More to follow… Semper Fi, Mac

We, Evelyn and I, already thought of him as our third son.
You notice I'm referring to Troy in the past tense. Troy has died.
I got a call at about 5:45 this morning (Sunday, 12/8/19) from Edie, the love of his life, Edie.
"Lyle, this is Edie. I'm so sorry for calling you so early but . . . Troy died this morning. You were always so good to him. I knew you'd want to know."
"Oh, no!" I said . . . always the wordsmith; but that's about all I could think of to say . . . it was a shock.
"He got up this morning and just collapsed," said Edie. "We tried to bring him back with CPR but it didn't work. We called 911 and the paramedics were here in no time. They worked on him for over and
hour. No success. He's gone."
This is the second time Troy has died.
He died about a year ago and they brought him back . . . and then they did a heart valve transplant, giving him a "bovine valve," which had come from a cow but seemed to work just fine. The "they" we refer to is the VA. Veteran's Administration. I'm a big admirer of theirs. As was Troy. The VA took good care of both of us with our medical issues. Troy had been in the Honor Guard in Washington, D. C. during his stint in the military. They don't let just anybody in the Honor Guard. You have to be special.
Troy was special. And now, Troy will have an honor guard give him full military honors as he is laid to rest in a military cemetery in Washington state. That guy could do anything. He knew computers backward and for-

LLAMA LLAMA RED PAJAMA AT THE OCEANSIDE PUBLIC LIBRARY Llama Llama from the popular picture book series Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney, will visit the Oceanside Public Library during the holiday season.
Kids of all ages, and their caregivers, are invited to a special family pajama storytime at the Civic Center Library, 330 North Coast Highway, on Monday, December 16, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., which will feature a visit from the popular book character Llama Llama, stories, songs, and craft activities.
The costume book character, Llama Llama, will also visit the Oceanside Public Library mobile libraries on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at John Landes Park, 2855 Cedar Road, and Thursday, December 19, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. Libby Lake Community Center, 4700 North River Road. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to meet Llama Llama, listen to Llama Llama stories, enjoy holiday treats, and make a craft activity. ward. Whenever I had a technical issue the first person I'd call was Troy. He'd have it fixed in no time. For the past several years, over the phone. He could walk even a klutz like me through the procedures to make the computer work again.
He had moved from San Diego County to up near Tacoma, Washington, where he met the love of his life, Edie Metz. Together, they bought a large piece of land, cleared it, and built a new home, complete with stable for horses. Troy worked way too hard on this project and both Evelyn, I, and Edie, kept telling him to slow down. But he would work all day, into the evening hours. And he wound up in the hospital several times as a result. Before he left San Diego I saw Troy could do magnificent gardening, landscaping, carpentry, heavy labor, sensitive art work, he did it all. And he was a big, lovable bear of a man.
Troy and I have been together for the better part of the 20+ years I and Evelyn have owned The Paper. He did all of our cover art as well as building ads for advertising clients of ours. Often, I'd have an
idea and put together what I thought was fairly decent cover art . . . or a fairly decent ad. Then I'd send it to Troy. He'd work on it and send it back. It was always about 1000% better.
In those 20+ years and over 1000 cover art illustrations I think I sent, maybe, five or six covers back to Troy to do over. He almost always got it right; he and I were almost always on the same wavelength as to what we wanted portrayed on the cover to illustrate the cover story. Very, very seldom did we ever disagree. Twenty years is a long time. You get to know a guy. And to love him.
Evelyn and I are mourning the loss of Troy, right along with Edie, and all those who knew and loved him. He was a very special, very talented man.
He is missed and will always be missed. And remembered.
Rest in Peace, Troy. Ya done good!

Hey business owner, there are two big days coming up.
Dec 31st That’s the last day of 2019 and, for most of us, the last day we can deduct business expense for 2019 taxes. January 14th That is the day Microsoft will euthanize the Windows 7 operating system. If you need to add, replace or upgrade any or all of your business or home PCs, we have three options for you.
1. NEW PC: Have us design and build your workstations. From simple desktops to designer workstations and custom servers using your choice of

vhat a fine looking woman she was.
Vhile dey were taking up the collection, Ole leaned forward and said, "Hey, Lena, how about you and me go to dinner in New Ulm next Friday?" "Yah, Ole, dot vould be nice," said Lena.
Well, Ole couldn't believe his luck. All week long he polished up his old Ford, and on Friday he picked Lena up and took her to the finest restaurant in New Ulm. When they sat down, Ole looked over at Lena and said, "Hey, Lena, vould you like a cocktail before dinner?" "Oh, no, Ole," said Lena. "Vat vould I tell my Sunday School Class?"
Vell, Ole was set back a bit, so he didn't say much until after dinner. Then he reached in his pocket and pulled out a pack of cigarettes. "Hey, Lena," said Ole, "vould you like a smoke?" "Oh, no, Ole," said Lena. "Vat vould I tell my Sunday School Class?"
or amount of RAM, DVD or Blue ray, Any ASUS Motherboard, case style, power supply wattage and other options. Priced from $500. 2. Enterprise refurb: Many school, corporate and government organizations have opted to replace their Win 7 PCs with new Win10 PCs, even though their Win7 PCs were not due for replacement under the usual three to five year budget cycles. We take these “trade-in” workstations, test and replace components as needed and upgrade to Win10 Pro. These late model, high quality workstations sell at a fraction of their original cost. Win10 Pro “enterprise refurbs” are very different than the cheaply built “retail” PCs with Win10 Home that clutter the shelves in the “big box” electronics stores. 3. UPGRADE: Often the most cost effective approach to meet the Win7 “end of life” challenge is with your existing Win7 PCs. If a PC is meeting its job requirements with Win7, it likely will do the same with a Win10 upgrade. With Microsoft’s new and improved Widows 10 (build 1909), we can upgrade workstations from Win7 to Win10 while maintaining the existing file structure, settings and installed programs 90% of the time. The price to upgrade from Win 7/8/8.1 to Win10 while saving files and settings is $165, $120 without file saving. The inhouse (our shop) upgrade cycle Vell, Ole vas feeling pretty low after that, so he yust got in his Ford and vas driving Lena home ven dey passed the Hot Springs Motel. He'd struck out twice already, so he figured he had nothing to lose. "Hey, Lena," said Ole, "how vould you like to stop at that motel with me?" "Yah, Ole, dot vould be nice," said Lena.
Vell, Ole couldn't believe his luck. He did a U-turn right then and there across the median and everything, and drove back to the motel and checked in vith Lena. The next morning Ole got up first. He looked at Lena lying there In the bed, her hair all spread out on her pillow. "Vat have I done? Vat have I done?" thought Ole.
He shook Lena and she woke up. "Lena, I've got to ask you von ting," said Ole. "Vat are you going to tell your Sunday School
Class?" "Lena said, "The same ting I alvays tell dem. You don't have to smoke and drink to have a good time!"
takes one and a half days.
We are extending our hours at least through Jan 14th in order to meet the demand for windows 10 upgrades. We will be open all day Saturdays (9-6) and will close only on Sundays, Christmas Day and New Years day.
A new shipment of “refurbs” came in on Tuesday Dec 11th so we have a great selection of desktops, all-in ones and notebooks from 14 to 17 inch. In addition we have some really good deals on 20 to 27 inch monitors. We also got a price reduction on 500GB and 1.0TB
Samsung EVO 860 SSDs (Solid State Drives) that we will be passing on to those upgrading to a solid state drive on their a desktop or notebook.
We have been building our finished goods inventory of new AMD Ryzen based desktop computers. These PCs range from a $495 basic workstation to a $1000 gamer/designer workstation that benchmarks faster than the fastest Intel i7. They all look exactly the same in our new “Blackbird” case. Check out their specs in our attached ad and remember; only The Computer Factory gives you a trade-in on your old PC.

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English ... And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.' Theodore Roosevelt 1907
