No televised special can compare with the magic of Christmas in Santa Barbara during the 60s and 79s. It's that reality I'm nostalgic for as I sit snowed in where I somehow managed to wind up "living". I wish you all the Merriest of Cristmases and a magical and happy New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving to Stormy and her family. And to everyone else. Let's be grateful for all our many blessings.

As an ex-pat Santa Barbaran living in Illinois, I can only say that the "fun" of winter sports is highly overrated.

As for resoures, I have to recommend Freecycle (www.freecycle.org). Freecycle is a community offering members the opportunity to offer or receive items free of charge. Groups are local but post online via a Yahoo group. I've received numerous books, clotthing items, computer equipment, even a television set (other people's trash becoming my treasures) and found new homes for stuff I no longer need. Recommend everyone check this one out!

Santa Barbara has always had an awesome library. Kudos to all who continue making it so!

I think thast "adults only" shopping times would be wonderful. Being retired, I'd appreciate time during the day when I'm not bombarded by other peoples ill-behaved offspring. As much as I enjoyed my own kids when they were little (and kept them under control in public), I have zero tolerance for other people's kids.

Definite steps in the right direction. I cannot fathom how abuse of innocent animlals can be tolerated. (But, then, I like my cat more than I like most people).

Sadly, few people give thought to the challenges of life in a wheelchair unless they or someone close to them becomes disabled. As far as businesses claiming they are "not responsible for accessibility" since they don't own the property, I'd counter that they should be held accountable for their choice to block wheelchair access in order to expand their business onto the patio.
