I think you are going to have to deal with a lot of humidity this season. Really I can not believe how much the East Coast got rain this year, every time I turn on the news its another town facing floods. In Perth nothing, in fact I have almost forgotten what rain looks like

... which is not a bad thing

Where I live we've had a few nice gentle rainfalls in the past few days. Mostly at night. And it's been a bit on the cool side, hasn't it? Warming up in the next few days though. The weekend looks perfect with 32 and 34 on Saturday and Sunday. Sunny, of course

Not sure how high it is, but you feel it from 7am (well when I walk out the door).

ha! It hasn't rained in Perth since 1975, right?! It seems to never rain there.

Went to the Eagles concert last night ... fantastic, as expected. Probably my favourite ever group. They don't need light shows or lasers or gimmicks. Just their amazing talent.

Nice one .

Awfully cliched, but I drove through California several years back with the windows down and "Hotel California" blasting through the speakers (with additional volume boost during the brilliant guitar rift at the end)

LOL! Yes, very cliche but we've done the same.

Other good tunes for such cliche behaviour: California Dreaming, Ventura Highway, All I Wanna Do, Californication, and anything by the Beach Boys.

I saw two shows here in Sydney -- Hotel California is my favourite song.... seeing it live was fantastic!

Love America's Ventura Highway, keeping with the Cali theme Hollywood Nights - Bob Seger and Boys of Summer - Don Henley are one's I love for those long drives

On another topic I see Shane Warne is in the News again. No its not about his return from retirement but about his affair with Liz Hurley. I'm not one
for media gossip but that guy really gets around

All great songs. Also 'I Love LA' by Randy Newman.
