Walnut Creek, Contra Costa Co. Aunt Ane always accepted people as they are, and she was the one who made everyone feel welcome. Nothing special about her, she would have insisted. She just tried to be a good person and help out where she could. Modesty became her, her family says. Ane was born in Concord when there barely was a Concord. The Olsen family was very proud of its heritage and remains so today. Elizabeth was the first of 12 children born to the Frank family, which had emigrated from Germany and moved to the Clayton Valley in the s, making it among the first settlers.
2 Week Route 66 Itinerary: The Ultimate American Road Trip
Of course, this is Owens Valley — just about all of the climbs are incredible. This last trip, I took a long weekend and enjoyed some fun cycling, hiking and camping. This was my schedule: Camp at Horseshoe Meadows Thursday night just over 10, ft Friday, descend down Horseshoe Meadows Road, then climb back up to camp reverse climb! Horseshoe Meadows, needless to say, deserves its own entry. An impressive sight, and an impressive climb.

First, it wouldn’t start Then, my idle was WAY down and I got the “reduced engine power” message. I drove it around, but couldn’t get above 20mph. When I shut it down, my key wouldn’t release. Thought that was odd. I really had to play with it for a while before I finally got it out. Then, I gave up and just let it sit for a while.
About 2 hours later I tried it again with the same results but I didn’t have to jump it to get it started. About 5 hours later I started it up with no problems at all The next day I started it up Took it to a place to get a new radio installed. Now, while there the problem reared it’s ugly face again. Except this time I couldn’t even jump start it.

Assessing the time sequence of landslide activity during the Holocene can help i better frame the present day landslide distribution in the wider context of climate change and ii better define landslide hazard to take adequate mitigation measures to preserve the elements at risk such as archaeological heritage and currently used structures and infrastructures. Rigorous image interpretation criteria applied to the interpretation of remote sensing images can be a valuable tool to derive information on landslide spatial and temporal distribution.
However, it only allows to broadly estimate the relative age of landslides based on their morphologic signature. In this work, we investigate the topological relations between landslides and archaeological sites for nine selected settlements in the Moldavian Plateau, situated on ridges and hillslopes. Landslides were classified as very old relict , old, and recent, according to their morphologic appearance.
We were very happy with our experience with Great Hawaii Vacations. We had one issue (we were not happy with our Ocean View – It was more like a Tower and Pool view) I called and left a message for Cheryl and within an hour she had spoken to the hotel and had us moving to a better room the next day.
Palm Springs and Mid-Century Modernism Mid-century modern room As early as the s, the Coachella Valley, and particularly Palm Springs, became known for the dry clear climate and mild warm winters which were so helpful to those recuperating from serious respiratory conditions. Wealthy people from all over the country, wishing to escape the winter snows and cold, soon began to value the area for relaxation and fun and as a place to enjoy the stark beauty and contrast of the scenic wonders the desert offered.
Soon the area became a get-away playground for the Hollywood elite and the stars created their own burgeoning movie colony here in the desert. The stars could stroll down the main streets and enjoy themselves in the restaurants and watering holes in relative comfort confident in being fairly anonymous. Because these homes were not the primary residences of the occupants, the owners felt that they had more freedom to take architectural risks in the designs.
The uniqueness of the desert landscape and environment and the luminous, rich, clear and strong light required an architecture that was sophisticated and understated — one that would blend with the spectacular austereness and palette of the desert. The desert was a blank canvas to the architect, open to creative and innovative approaches in new lines, angles, and textures that worked with the environment. It inspired artists to work with, blending and contrasting, the natural materials in abundance around them.
Dolly Faibyshev states in her book Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern, that Palm Springs has one of the largest concentrations of mid-century modern architecture in the country.

A news agency which supports Islamic State said on Friday the attackers were followers of the group. US government sources have said there is no evidence the attack was directed by the militant group, or that the organisation even knew who the attackers were. The developments in the probe come two days after 14 people were killed and 21 others wounded at a year-end office party in San Bernardino – the deadliest mass shooting in the United States since the Newtown school massacre in US-born Syed Farook, 28, and his year-old Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik were killed in a firefight with police hours after the attack, leaving investigators to comb through their belongings to try to determine a motive.
FBI director James Comey said the probe so far had shown that the couple were radicalised and inspired by “foreign terrorist organisations,” but were not part of a larger group or cell. Farook had contact with people from at least two militant organizations overseas, including the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front in Syria, the Los Angeles Times reported on Friday, citing a federal law enforcement official.
The official described “some kind” of contact between Farook and people from the Nusra Front and the radical al Shabaab group in Somalia, the Times reported. It is unclear what type of contact or with whom, the newspaper said. A pro-IS news agency, Aamaq, on Friday said the mass shooting was perpetrated by sympathisers of the radical group, which has urged followers in the United States and elsewhere to carry out lone wolf attacks.
Relatives of Farook and Malik were at a loss to explain how the couple, who had an infant girl and seemed to be living a normal life, could have committed mass murder.

We had a wonderful vacation and would use Great Hawaii Vacations again. Everyone was courteous from the start and my check-in went smoothly because all the information was accurately conveyed to the hotel.
