I'm in Santa Barbara, California - gratefully 90 miles North of Los Angeles.
Good wines, fine horses, fancy cars (you can street park your ferrari), friendly natives, sun, surf and home to the Beach Boys. Also known affectionatly as the home of the newly wed and nearly dead. Currently prosecuting Michael Jackson for child molestation. Top notch Mexican food. "Mellow, Laid Back" alternates with, "Dig Me". Will party at the drop of a sombrero and call it, "fund raising". Fantastic natural beauty - scary property values. Generous people who will invite you into their homes and share anything they have with you. Rich ol' farts with private guards. Come visit and you WILL believe in California girls.
