Association to complete roof rehab on historic Osuna Adobe

The Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Osuna Adobe will undergo a roof remodel, replacing the clay barrel roof with the more historically significant wood shingle. The Association board approved a $50,000 expenditure for the roof at its Nov. 7 meeting, subject to approval by the Covenant Design Review Committee which is set to meet on Nov. 19. RSF Association Assistant Manager Arnold Keene said the abobe on the Osuna Ranch on Via de Santa Fe represents “an amazing piece of history” in the Covenant—in 1836 the adobe was the home of Juan Maria Osuna, the first mayor of the pueblo of San Diego. In 2017, the adobe was placed on the National Register of Historic Places as one of the oldest historic adobes in California. Over the years, the Association’s Osuna Committee has done a great deal of research to uncover how the adobe evolved since being built in 1831 as a one-room home with a long front porch and thatched roof. In the late 1800s, a living room and another room were added. After the adobe fell into disrepair, Rancho Santa Fe architect Lilian Rice completed a renovation in 1924, adding a kitchen, bathroom, fireplace, an enclosed porch and a tile roof. The long porch in the front w...

With the popularity of the iPhone and iPad comes a sea of accessories for both devices.

With the popularity of the iPhone and iPad comes a sea of accessories for both devices. While iPhones and iPads are powerful devices on their own, they can be enhanced by accessories that protect them, let you use them in different ways, and make them work harder for you. But sifting through the plethora of cases, cables, keyboards, adapters and other accessories available today is a daunting task. It’s made even harder thanks to all the different companies making accessories—while that means you can find iPhone and iPad accessories to fit any budget, it also means that not all of those accessories are worth buying (the cheapest option isn’t always the way to go, nor is the most expensive option the best out there). To make things easier for you, Ars has spent the fall testing a slew of iPhone and iPad accessories in order to find the best and most useful ones that are worth your hard-earned dollars.

Anker’s PowerLine+ II family of cords are arguably better than Apple’s own lig...

The ideal cat harness offers both durability and comfort, not to mention excellent adjustability for a

The ideal cat harness offers both durability and comfort, not to mention excellent adjustability for a snug and secure fit. Though a traditional nylon harness might get the job done, we found that vest-style harnesses were better for larger cats and for escape artist cats. Vest-style harnesses offer a larger surface area for an added degree of security with wider straps to minimize pinch points and maximize comfort for your cat. Our top pick for the best vest-style cat harness is the Kitty Holster Cat Harness. Made from 100% breathable cotton with an undyed lining, the Kitty Holster Cat Harness is optimized for comfort and durability, but it is still easy to use and machine washable. This vest-style harness comes in four sizes, so you can find the ideal fit for your cat. You also have several color options to choose from. The harness has a D-ring so you can attach a leash directly to it. As an all-purpose harness, the Kitty Holster Cat Harness is perfect for everything from trips to the vet to long walks outdoors. Kitty Catter gives the Kitty Holster Cat Harness an A+ and 5-star review for its comfort and durability. Cat Overdose also comments on the security of the harness as ...

The last seven days have seen an abrupt change in the weather as cooler temperatures arrive

The last seven days have seen an abrupt change in the weather as cooler temperatures arrive at last in the Costa Cálida, with maximums falling from 29 degrees last weekend to a forecast high of just 17 this Friday, and as heavy snow falls in the mountains of northern Spain there could even be a flurry or two in the north of Murcia over the weekend! October was so warm that fruit trees in Blanca and Cieza have been mistakenly beginning their spring blossom, threatening next year’s harvests, but the arrival of a cold front has brought heavy snowfalls to the mountains of northern Spain as ski resorts prepare for the 2019/20 season. Even in Murcia it is just possible that light dustings of snow could reach the north-west of the Region over the weekend, and most Murcianos will be digging out their duvets – however, this IS the Costa Cálida, after all, and by Saturday and Sunday maximums will be back up to 20 or so on the coast! Apart from the weather, the news in Spain this week has been absolutely dominated by the general election which takes place on Sunday, the fourth in four years, and on Thursday the issue of the Mar Menor was in the campaign spotlight as the leaders of both the...
