|Stay independent, my friends|
Perhaps the development and water moratoriums wisely passed by the City Council last Tuesday will be a first step in preserving the rest of this town from the kinds of destruction the McMansionizers and their a little too clever for their own good lawyers have planned for the rest of our little planet in the foothills?
You do know, one of the great ironies of the day is that The Canyon (the more formal name for that place), thus protected, has become, according to Redfin, one of the hottest real estate markets in Los Angeles County. You can read about that one by clicking here and scrolling down. Which only goes to show, properly shielded from the usual suspects, and safely nurtured by the innate wisdom of the smartest amongst us, our quaint little Canyon is making wealthy land barons of many living up there.
However, once having stooped to conquer, Anita and John decided they needed new frontiers to save, and left that little slice of paradise and headed way up north to Mendicino County and the little 'burgh called Point Arena. There they bought a parcel of wilderness land amongst the mighty coastal redwoods, and made their stand.
Point Arena is well within the erstwhile breakaway State of Jefferson. The portion of California that, if life were cooler than it generally is, would become its own government and save the people living there from the depredations of that deeply corrupt one party regime governing us all from Sacramento.
John, Anita and I joke about the whole Jefferson thing, and apparently it isn't about to happen. But that almost state does have a cool flag, which I posted above. Sort of the Dos Equis of lost causes, with neat merchandizing. Whatever that cause might be. I'm not sure anybody really knows, but stay independent my friends, anyway.
But I have gone way off the reservation here. Anita and John kindly sent me a pictorial guide to their brave new world in the wilds of the nor'western tier, and I thought I should share it with you here.
