    The Valley Line: Taking in the Big Picture in Laguna Beach
    What fabulous, cool weather we have had during the first part of this month. Whoever thought that those two words would ever describe August weather in our area, for crying out loud? I hope my words don't jinx the situation. I have to keep pushing the...
