>Well hair we are another Monday. Starting to get a little cool out there at night and that means warming fires. I'm sure a lot of people who lite them put them out when they are done using them but there are others either too drunk, stoned, or just don't care enough to put them out and that is one of the reasons the rest of us must remain alert to signs of smoke, fires, or even the odor of a fire. Many times the odor of smoke is a fireplace or BBQ, Better to be safe than sorry. I don't call unless the odor is very strong or when I see smoke or fire. Warming Fires can be set anywhere in town usually where someone is camping but common areas where one might see warming fires include: The Beach, Vacant lots, side of the road in wooded areas, the Side of the freeway, or Rail Road Tracks. When I'm listening to the scanner some of the areas I hear: Highway 101 in the areas of Castillo, or Haley, Upper State Street at 101 near Calle Real, 101 Around Milpas, various locations on the beach. The beach fires are not always warming fires. Granny Field, downtown Goleta along the Rail Road Tracks, West side along the tracks, and East Side along the tracks and Bird Refuge. Almost every morning smoke investigations are called in along 101 in Carpinteria I'm sure there are other places but the basics are there. I've said many times that I'm not against people sleeping under the stars; I don't think it should be against the law to sleep outside either. There are laws that are broken that I think should be enforced like lighting Illegal fires, littering, loitering if there are loitering laws, drunk in public, Etc. I also think people should not sleep in residential HOODS. But that's just my opinion. People are going to be homeless while others like it or not. Not everyone can work or has enough money to rent a place, I think it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
Someone sent me this thingy in the mail that I won over a million bucks along with a check with my name on it of course I have to pay 12.99 to get the funds released. I hate jerks that send things like that out it gives people False Hope. A lot of people fall for those scams many times you try to find the punks who send that scrap out and you run into a series of PO Boxes and false addresses. I've never fallen for anything like that but I have heard of others that have the Elderly and Handicapped are targets for this sort of Fraud. I think people that victimize the poor and elderly would serve a better purpose as a bucket of Chum.
I have a really bad back I can't lift heavy things anymore when I tell people my back is bad and I cannot lift much they treat me as if I'm faking, I'm not. It hurts more now than it has any other time in my life. I'm really not sure how I injured it this time possibly riding one of my bicycles, but it had gotten worse and now it's HELL. Right in the spine I'm not looking for advice or drugs just making a point I bet a few of you have bad backs also which leads into the last subject marathon hot-tubbing. I heard a medical call the other day for someone that was in the hot tub on Cathedral Oaks for over an hour they didn't say if there was another medical problem associated with that just that someone was in the hot tub for over an hour. I have heard that it's not good to have alcoholic beverages before taking a tub because people have heart attacks doing that I have heard a couple of those on my scanner in the past so for those of you that don't know don't Drink Alcohol and Tub.

P.S. Be careful out there walking around carrying cash. The First is coming up and people get robbed when they got a few bucks on em, especially when they are sleeping out in the elements, or walking home from a bar all alone when it's late. Be aware of your surroundings don't put your purse down unattended be a bad thing to lose the rent, or food money while some worthless piece of garbage gets away with your loot Be Careful! OK? OK.
