It was incredible...the property consists of several separate cottages (all have a fireplace) and several large rooms to choose from. The grounds are very serene and the owners are really nice people.
Every morning, we'd hear a soft knock on our door and be greeted with a basket of fresh made muffins, OJ & coffee (all organic). Every eve , the fog would slowly roll in as we enjoyed our newest wine selection from our visit to one of the many winery's along the Geyserville Winery Loop Rd ...the restaurant on the property was one of the best I've ever experienced and there are way too many in the area to mention. If you ever go that way, make a reservation, you won't regret it!
If you go inland from there, you'll find Ukiah, the city known as 10 thousand Buddhas, they have a Buddhist Monestery there and the cafe serves some of the best vegetarian food on the planet, even meat-eaters go there for lunches, it's sooooo good!
After lunch, if you go just beyond the monastery, you'll find the natural hot springs where you can soak till you turn into a prune...ummmmmmmm! Just heavenly....

When Hollywood leaves Hollywood, you know things are bad.

Sony Pictures Imageworks is moving its headquarters from Culver City to Canada.

The visual-effects unit, which employs about 270 people, said it was moving a bulk of its operations to Vancouver, where it already has a satellite studio, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The move will cut costs due to Canadian tax breaks, the Times said.

For the moment this is just the visual effects unit, but considering how much filming is done abroad, it’s not a good sign.

California produced 68 percent of the top 25 movies at the worldwide box office in 1997. In 2013, it was down to eight percent. Of the 26 live-action films with production budgets over $100 million, just two — “The Hangover Part III” and “Star Trek: Into Darkness” — were filmed primarily in California.

Los Angeles, however, won’t be getting the sequel.

If California loses the film industry and pushes out non-Green energy companies, it’s going to be left with the tech industry and a giant welfare state that the tech industry will flee.

Who could see this coming?

Because he gets his news from the NY Times?

A Southern California couple received a letter from Glendora city officials threatening to fine them $500 if they don’t get their sun-scorched brown lawn green again, reports AP. Which Laura Whitney and Michael Korte would gladly do, except for one thing: They could also be fined $500 if they water their lawn too much; they’re currently only watering twice a week. With more than 80% of California in an extreme drought, according to the Los Angeles Times, the state water board voted this week to implement emergency conservation plans and gave the OK to fine water wasters up to $500 a day.

Yes, from the NY Times or MSNBC or CNN etc.

That's what I mean about local politics getting as bad as national. I think it's just awful, we have all these people WHOSE SALARY WE PAY telling us how to water or not water our lawn, how tall our lawn can be, what trees we can or can't cut, how many we can cut, if we can or can't build something on our property, if we can flush our toilet or not.

California recorded a budget surplus at the end of their fiscal year on June 30th, and all of their tax receipts exceeded expectations. Moody's lifted their general obligation debt status from A1 to Aa3 as a result of their surplus. Their employment rate is up 3.6% over the last 18 months, compared with a national average of 2.8%. The amount of uninsured people has been cut in half, thanks to Obamacare! California is in much better shape than what they're telling us on The Forum Of Gloom!

Who saw this coming?

 Shocked 

Healthcare insurance premiums for individuals in California rose between 22 percent and 88 percent in 2014 from last year, even after the federal healthcare overhaul, the state’s insurance commissioner said.

The rate increases, with variation for geography and age, were masked by federal subsidies that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provides to 88 percent of the 1.4 million Californians who purchased healthcare through the state’s exchange, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said.

Cash Trumps Global Warming...

Post  News Hawk on Wed Aug 13, 2014 8:22 pm

The chemicals used in the batteries are also not safe, they’re actually toxic and volatile. The standards in this situation are those of waste, which ultimately happens when the battery can no longer hold a charge.

Tax breaks and waiver of environmental rules for one company that will produce a car that creates more pollution then any gas vehicle. The democrats are the middle man where in this case Telsa will pay (money laundering) the democrat party to finance their crooked elections.

Meanwhile in the central valley, water has been turned off to an area that produces 25% of the food in the country because a minnow that was introduced to man made canals for mosquito control is all of a sudden endangered after being there for more then 70 years. Really done to lower land value so others can buy it up.

California made an exception for Tesla, which is the focus of the article.

Look again:

Stop the music. All the merriment over the California recovery may have been a bit premature. Tax revenues are way down this year in the Golden State, and this could throw the books back into the red.

Not so Golden State

Here is the sobering analysis released last week from the Rockefeller Institute of Government, which monitors state spending and revenues:

"After four years of uninterrupted growth, states' tax collections saw a decline in the first quarter of 2014. Preliminary figures for the second quarter of 2014 indicate further declines in personal income-tax collections and possibly in overall state taxes."

Then came the show stopper:

"Most of the decline is attributable to a single state — California — where personal income-tax collections declined by $2 billion, or 11.1%. If we exclude California, personal income tax collections show a growth of 2.0% in personal income tax collections and a growth of 0.6% in overall state tax collections."

This time last year, liberals around the country were trumpeting the big fiscal comeback of the Golden State in the wake of Jerry Brown's giant tax increase — Proposition 30.

That initiative was passed by voters on Nov. 6, 2012, and it raised the personal income-tax rate on taxpayers making over $250,000 for singles and $500,000 for married couples to as high as 13% — which is the heaviest tax penalty on working and investing in the nation outside of New York City.

What was especially devious is that the tax hit was made retroactive to January 2012. Sacramento was so desperate for money that nobody seemed to mind this after-the fact taxation is really a form of confiscation.

Forget so-called "Mexifornia." How about the United States of Mexico?  On Monday, Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto called on other states to "evolve" like California so the United States can be more like his home country.  

Appearing with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and California Governor Jerry Brown in Los Angeles, Peña Nieto called for amnesty legislation and more open borders while blasting governors who have taken a tough stance on illegal immigration. "This is the other Mexico," Peña Nieto reportedly "said of the United States, which is property to an estimated 11 million Mexican immigrants," according to the Los Angeles Times. —LATimes

State Announces 21-Day Quarantine For Anyone At Risk Of Ebola; To Be Determined On Case-By-Case Basis


California is imposing the risked-based quarantines after the governors of New Jersey and New York were criticized for ordering mandatory quarantines.

The quarantine concept has been controversial in those states and is being challenged by a nurse from Maine who says there’s no reason to keep her locked away, after she came home from treating ebola patients in West Africa.

The Pentagon says troops returning from Ebola missions will be isolated.

UCLA Faculty Approves Diversity Class Requirement.

UCLA chancellor Gene Block was a proponent of requiring a course on diversity. A course in ethnic, cultural, religious or gender diversity is likely to become a requirement at UCLA Opponents to a diversity course requirement at UCLA said students are already overburdened Most other UC campuses already require such courses in diversity, as does UCLA's arts and architecture school The faculty of UCLA’s largest academic unit voted by a narrow margin to require future undergraduates to take a course on ethnic, cultural, religious or gender diversity.
—LATimes

Why is this needed?

Is it because "immigrants" refuse assimilation?

And the US could have had this...!

Post  News Hawk on Tue Dec 30, 2014 6:40 pm

After months of seeing gas prices sink ever lower, Californians will ring in 2015 by paying more at the pump as a result of the state’s landmark greenhouse-gas emissions law.

But how much more we’ll pay, and whether it’s worth it, remains bitterly debated among oil companies, some state lawmakers and environmentalists.

Starting Thursday, gasoline and diesel producers will be subject to the state’s cap-and-trade system, forcing them either to supply lower-carbon fuels — which are more expensive to produce — or to buy pollution permits for the greenhouse gases created when the conventional fuel they supply is burned. In the short term, at least, that will mean higher prices at the pump, starting almost immediately.
San Jose Mercury News

Cheers for higher gas prices!

Even Should You Die in California...!

Post  News Hawk on Tue Jan 06, 2015 5:56 pm

Leaving California?

Soon, you may be paying a California "Departure Tax"!


The goal of this proposition is to gain revenue from the rich, give it to the poor, and keep anyone from leaving the State of California. Idiotic taxes like this ballot proposal actually do the opposite of what they desire. Instead of gaining revenue, they scare away more of the businesses that keeps this economy moving, which in the end takes away more jobs, and leaves more people in the poor-house. The left doesn’t seem to understand that a profit driven economy needs profit to survive.

The American Dream is all about that profit. Removing any and all rewards for producing and making more money will only do one thing – turn the high producers into takers, and make more people poor.

Solution: Offer Federal Grant Money for Students to Study Global Warming...

Post  News Hawk on Fri Jan 16, 2015 6:00 pm

University of California Pension Costs Force Tuition Increase

Time and time again, California proves itself to be a what-not-to-do handbook for states looking to responsibly balance their budgets. This reputation was clearly on display by the University of California Board of Regents’ decision to increase the cost of tuition by 25 percent over the next five years.

The increased tuition won’t be going to make improvements for students but rather will almost certainly go directly into funding for UC’s underfunded and mismanaged pension system.

The University of California Retirement Plan (UCRP) is facing a major shortfall. In making sure that it is funded adequately enough to pay current retirees while investing retirement money for current employees to be paid out once they retire, UCRP comes up $8 billion shy.

Like the broader California Public Employees Retirement System (CALPERS) and California State Teachers Retirement System (CALSTRS), which handle the retirement funds of most state employees and K-12 teachers respectively, the root cause of funding issues for UCRP is due to an outdated form of pensions that is common among the vast majority of states governments and municipalities.
American Legislator

It’s a feedback loop: pay public employees a lot of money, they contribute to Democrats, who get elected and vote to pay public employees a lot of money.
