Today’s news was filled with reports that southland foreclosures were up 33% in June over last June (2007).  That’s depressing.

The Los Angeles Times reported that in Q2/2008, there were 4 foreclosures in Seal Beach versus 0 foreclosures for the same period in 2007.

The third concert in this series of six concerts was enjoyed by a large crowd in Seal Beach this evening.  The Regular Guys played with gusto – even inviting the event organizer to join them for the closing song of the first set.  I would guess that the crowd was larger tonight than for the earlier two concerts.

The chamber hasn’t announced any attendance that I’m aware of, but with the cool coastal breeze in the evening, it’s no wonder that folks enjoy the park setting, eating their meals while being entertained.  During the break (I never win raffles anyway), I walked across the street to Bogarts (one of the coffee houses in town).

I’m already looking forward to the remaining concerts in this year’s series.  Next week will be rockabilly and blues, then classic rock, then surf to conclude the series.
