At this time of the year I'm usually complaining about the heat and how we are experiencing the dog days of summer. However, capricious Mother Nature has decided she was bored with the same old fare and is giving us what is up to now one of the coolest beginnings of August on record. Last week I was looking for my fuzzy slippers and this week I was donning a sweater in the early morning because I was shivering!
I have been listening to the weather people patter on and on about how disappointing it is that summer hasn't arrived in Los Angeles yet. Yep, I've been liking things just the way they are. I just hope that those dog days don't hit us in September and October.
Recently it seems that music, music and more music is what it is all about in and around our community.
On Sunday evening folks were dancing an Irish jig at Memorial Park with lively Celtic music. Although not as crowded as other Sundays, it was a delightful evening of traditional music from Ireland performed by the musical group "Wake the Bard." When I closed my eyes, it sounded like I was back in a pub in Dingle — all I needed was a pint of Guinness.
