Please help Elaine and her cat Georgie! Someone recently came and stole many of her hanging and potted plants she has had for 35 years. If you have any succulents, cacti or any others you wish to donate, please drop off at 631 Ramona St., (her house is near the Hare Krishna temple). The below picture is what it used to look like before the theft.

The Gazebo in Heisler Park is available for weddings. The permit costs $255 and you get an incredible ocean view. We stroll by there on my Heisler Park/Downtown tour.
