I know, I know, it ain't too hot and it ain't snowin'.... but I'm feeling like those prairie women who lost their minds because of the wind LOL!

On a fun note, I learned the difference between crows and ravens. Lots of ravens around. Very cool, smart birds. They're bigger than crows and their tails are shaped like a "V" whereas crows are smaller and their tail feathers are the same length, so they look bobbed off straight.

I love watching the ravens just hover in the air in the wind. When it's not gusting 50 mph that is.

I will take the ravens any day over the "flying rats" (pigeons) that inhabit my neighborhood

I went with a neighbor to the senior lunch at the Lucky 7 Casino on a Thursday, which was really nice by the way. Don't bother with the one at the Elk Valley Casino - it's funky. But, the Lucky 7 Casino is really nice and they serve you in the cafe. We could even see the ocean, and they actually serve you - as opposed to Elk Valley, where they let you go through a buffet line in a windowless conference room...

Anyway, I don't gamble, but we thought we'd try out the cheap senior lunch days. To get the best price, you first go to the member services desk and get a club card. So, we're chatting with the lady who is getting us our club card and she asks us where we're from and why we moved to CC. Both of us are seniors who are from CA, and moved to CC from a different part of CA because it's affordable and by the ocean.

This woman moved to CC from Medford, OR, and started complaining that she can't buy a house in CC because of all of the rich Californians who are moving to CC and running up the price of real estate.

I didn't say anything but I thought it was hilarious. People in OR or WA or wherever, love to hate Californians for moving to their state and driving up the price of real estate. And she's so used to complaining about that, that she wasn't realizing that within CA, we are the locals simply moving within our state - and she is the outsider from another state creating more competition for the real estate.

Anyway, some of you Californians will understand the hilarious irony in that. Heck, she's also taking someone's job! It's pretty funny when the CA haters actually move to CA and then still hate on Californians for making their lives difficult - in California.
2 Casinos in Crescent City? Who owns those, are those tribal? The town isn't on tribal land, how did anyone get a permit to have casinos there?

Don't know details about land, but you can google Elk Valley Casino and Lucky 7 Casino. I'm assuming they're different tribes. Elk Valley is in Crescent City, and Lucky 7 is in Smith River. You can also get cheap gas at Lucky 7. You can get cheap cigarettes at both, I think.

Not the point. Most tribal petitions to set up a casino off-rez get rejected, which is why I was asking. Otherwise, all major urban areas would have them, right? They have to abide by federal tribal gaming regs.


edit: I see. The Elk Valley one is actually outside the city limits, and there's a Rancheria out there.

I've been looking at houses in Crescent City CA on zillow. Doesn't anyone have a wood burning fireplace? I see all these ugly little metal things instead.

With google street view, using your computer mouse, you can explore Crescent City almost like you were driving around there.....look to see if fireplaces are scarce there or not
