Saw the Dune remake trailer last week before the 007 screening. The new version looks strong, directed by Denis Villeneuve who likes the pressure of handling a remake of widely popular features…he did Blade Runner 2049. Versatile casting of newer talents and veterans (Josh Brolin, Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Faithfull, Javier Bardem, wrestler turned actor Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgard, Jason Momoa). Special effects were strong!

5. Witch Creek Fire (2007, affected my favorite city, Del Mar, while I was in town. Del Mar was briefly evacuated, and I stayed two nights at a hotel next to the @sureshs P.F. Chang's near UTC)



Burned into memory

Strides made one year after Witch Creek
The 2007 Witch Creek fire was a frightening wake-up call for Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Del Mar.

“I think most of us felt that we would never experience fire in our neighborhood,” said Bill Beckman, who serves on the Rancho Santa Fe Association board. “We were made very, very aware that’s not true at all.”
In the year since the fire, with fires lighting up in the North and East Counties earlier this week, one thing is clear: Residents are getting the message that Rancho Santa Fe is one of the top three areas in San Diego County most likely to burn, as stated in a recent report.

And if the Ranch’s oil-rich eucalyptus forest lights up, Solana Beach and Del Mar are vulnerable to flying embers and fire coming through the San Elijo Lagoon and San Dieguito River Valle

The most iconic image from the '68 Olympics is that of Tommie Smith & John Carlos with their black power salute on the medal awards podium

6. The poor country of Ethiopia produced the third consecutive gold medal marathon winner. Mamo Wolde followed Abebe Bikila’s Rome and Tokyo golds and won in devastatingly difficult conditions that forced nearly a quarter of the field to quit mid race.
