LA fires

The fires are still raging here and the effect is being felt all over, even miles away from the actual flames. Driving today, I could see smoke on the horizon while ash rained down constantly from a bright blue and cloudless sky, coating everything and everyone in a fine, grey layer. The air pollution in LA isn't good at the best of times and this certainly isn't helping matters, burning the back of one's throat and making breathing a tad more difficult. That said — and I mean this without any disrespect to those who have lost their homes in the fires — the sunset last night in Santa Monica sure was colourful and pretty.

Oh you Brits and your crazy Sainsbury supermarket managers. When will you learn?

Has anyone heard anything about "Defiance" (w/ Daniel Craig) that's supposed to come out "in select theaters" this winter? it looks really good but have heard/seen nothing about it until today...

It has the dreaded words "directed by Ed Zwick" on it.
