Good 58º clear sunny morning.
Yesterday morning the clouds were fascinating...
We hit 90º by noon and by 2pm it was 100º. We topped at 109º at 4pm.
I get tired of the gloom all winter, but right now this heat is making me say, COME ON WINTER!!!!
On July 13, 1923, a sign consisting of 50-foot-tall letters spelling out “HOLLYWOODLAND” was dedicated on Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills to promote a subdivision. The last four letters were removed in 1949 and the sign remains a landmark known around the world.

Years ago you could drive up to Mount Lee and sit up above the sigh and enjoy the view. Not saying anyone's name, but a boy I dated and I went up there a few times, parked where that opening is, and "enjoyed the view"!! Well, a little necking also!!!
