Quote of the Day

Great souls have wills; feeble ones have only wishes.

–  Chinese proverb

This Day in History

July 21, 1899:  Ernest Hemingway is born.  On this day in 1899, Ernest Miller Hemingway, author of such novels as “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “The Old Man and the Sea,” is born in Oak Park, Illinois.  The influential American literary icon became known for his straightforward prose and use of understatement.  Hemingway, who tackled topics such as bullfighting and war in his work, also became famous for his own macho, hard-drinking persona.

I visited three separate weather websites to try to get an accurate high temperature reading.  I saw anywhere from 94 to 101, so I’m just shooting somewhere in the upper/middle.

We’ll be scattered about Ojai as a team, as we have inspections on three of our listings that are in escrow.  Should be a lot of fun crawling around in the attic today for the inspectors.  I don’t envy that job, especially when they’re under the house in the crawlspace. We know an inspector who got bit by something in a crawlspace (he didn’t feel the bite, only noticed it later in the day) – and ended up in the hospital for a few days as a result!

Stay cool, we’ll see you later…
