How to know you're in California

Could it be the blue skies and palm trees?

It's a good start, but you know, Florida and all that.

How about the architecture? Stucco anyone? How about pink, purple and orange stucco? Looks like a throwback from the Flinstones. Not only is this building unique on the outside, but it's very special inside as well. This is co-op housing, where you and your neighbors live like one big family and have to participate in "family" meals and babysitting. Kind of like a commune in the city.

For me though, the real indicator is the billboards. You can tell a lot about a community by the billboards. When I went to Arkansas with my husband a few years ago, I was intrigued by the billboards. There were a lot of anti-abortion ads, paternity testing ads, and even one that just read "JESUS"

I have never seen any of those displayed here in California. No, we are all about the good times here. We have.....

Alcohol (lots and lots of these)


and of course, pot

Hey look, they even take credit cards!

It's only because there's nothing but Churches and abortion clinics in AR. Typical Sun-- Pick up a woman from church, sleep w/ her, and pray she don't need an abortion a few weeks later. lol...
