Three cheers for Anna's. . . but I still miss the _original_ lemon pies by the old Goleta Bakery, owned by the Wolfe family, our former neighbors. *That* was the best lemon pie I've ever tasted. I still wish I could make one as good.

Sezme hasn't been to Stow lately? did he miss the barnyard? The house? the lovely garden? the lake? one wonders where smug sezme lives, and if he holds his nose every time he travels through Goleta. Goleta is suburban solely because the county didn't care what happened beyond the red tile zone.
The setting at Stow House is gorgeous and YES- a perfect place for nostalgia, music, and fun.
Missing all those avocado and lemon trees. . . .

Where do lemons come from? From your neighbor's backyard, or your own-- where they should ;) Talk about culture shock- when I moved away from my parents' home I found out you had to BUY lemons and avocados, and they were expensive! Before all these housing tracts, almost everybody you knew had a tree or two, so lemons and avocados were always free.

Move the sellers of the FARMERS MARKET there-- and KEEP THE MOSAIC IN PLACE. Why move it when it's stable where it is?
Above all, ADD TREES. That lot and the Arlington's are too bare of landscape as is.

Sure hope the Council has the guts to deny Bacara its request to ruin the beach/habitat.

Costa just has a chip on his shoulder. Like HE is the only person in the world that Bible was there for? He's renting a furnished room! Others who rent it may appreciate that Bible. Over many centuries, people who have read the Bible have been inspired, saved from suicide, enjoyed love poetry, war stories, wondered about life, and yes, even found God. It addresses many needs for many people. Just because Costa hates it is no sign other renters of the room do.
My grandmother, wise woman, used to say, "if you have insomnia, just start reading your Bible and the Devil will put you to sleep!" Great literature and a soporific. And the guy's protesting <shrug> :)

THANK YOU Supervisors-- nobody needs a "house" that large, and its siting was a travesty which should never have been allowed. Why should we be forced to look at a dirt wall when we have the beautiful Gaviota coast!
