Attention, the 4th of July is THIS FRIDAY!  If you do not have plans as of yet to view the fireworks from somewhere in San Diego county, you might want to start planning now.  From Oceanside to San Diego, there will be festivities celebrating America.  Legoland even has fireworks over looking the Carlsbad Flower Fields.  Not too shabby if you ask me.

1970s Pinup Queen Farrah Fawcett Anniversary

1970s pinup queen, and not so dumb blond actress, Farrah Fawcett died five years ago this morning. Farrah, who was best known for her part on Charlie’s Angels, passed away due to cancer.

Since I like a good pinup queen, I love the story behind this famous print. She was one smart cookie -

To promote her instant celebrity in Charlie’s Angels, a Cleveland poster company arranged to shoot Fawcett in a bikini at her house in 1976. As Rubenstein explained, “She wasn’t comfortable so exposed, so she pulled this red one-piece from her closet. The company hated the pic, but Farrah had final approval (and retained photo rights). Smart girl: The poster sold over 12 million copies and is still for sale today.” [InStyle]

Still selling copies after 12 million have already been sold!  And she owned the rights up to the end.  Not so dumb, now was she?

SoCal Earthquake WeeeEEEeee

Last night was rollin’ here in Southern California. We had a few good little earthquakes, and then we had a big one about 5.1 in La Habra (that’s South of Los Angeles)

Don’t worry, we’re OK, but that was rolling for a while and we were a little worried for a second. Twitter and Facebook kind of blew up with all of us talking about it, making sure each other were ok.

Did you all feel it last night? Do you have friends here?
