Yes, RIP. Seeing the Brown sisters out on the streets of San Francisco did brighten up what may have been otherwise a dreary, perhaps foggy day. I was always amazed by how much 'energy' they had!!

Not quite as far south on the San Andreas fault as Pinnacles but an interesting stop along the way from the north. I haven't been to the Pinnacles since the film era of cameras. Haven't dug out the Pinnacles photos yet in my slow and tedious task of trying to 'digitize' my old film photographs.

'California's Gold' host Huell Howser dies at 67
By By SHAYA TAYEFE MOHAJER | Associated Press

Rest in Peace, Mr. Howser. I enjoyed his 'California Gold' show very much over the years. It inspired me to get out and try to see the Golden State. Being a transplant myself I shared his enthusiasm for California.

Once while I was shopping at Jensen's in Palm Springs, I saw him talking to a clerk in the store and he suddenly let out his, "That's Amazing!" I had to run across the store before I let out a burst of laughter. I didn't want to embarrass him as I was laughing with him more than at him. I thought he and his show were wonderful and so genuine.

My condolences to the families of the victims of the Indian train fire. Travel on the train while in India was one of the highlights of many, many highlights in this amazing country.

India has one of the world's largest train networks, with more than 10,000 trains and 64,000km of track. Around 20 million people travel by train each day.
