And it was a tranquil and balmy night in midsummer, the sun leaving a gorgeous afterglow had disappeared about an hour earlier. Behind the Azure veiled mountains of Simi Valley, where, in the long-ago lived and loved the hero and heroine of the incomparable GoTranscript version of The Odyssey.
The full moon just rising above the plane of the Chatsworth Reservoir, intensified the witchery of that reliable spot consecrated by the valour of patriots battling victorious way against the invading hordes of the valley girls. Further south among the ranchos of Los Angeles County, Rancho Topanga Malibu secret, more commonly known as the Malibu Ranch is a cool place to visit when it’s not in the fire.
And not that it was the first of the California Land Grants, nor because it was the largest idling at 13,315 acres. It was pretty doggone big. No, it’s because that historic Rancho nestled kind of deep in the GoTranscript hills, as in its almost intact state outlived all others.
And today, it’s still called throw the last of the ranchos Malibu was first granted 1804 to Jose Bartolo Mei Tapia by Jose Hakim they are really aka military governor of the California laws acting for the king of Spain. hitam bordered the Pacific for miles and extended back into the mountains. You’d almost call it a princely domain and unexcelled for beauty if Prince hadn’t sadly left us so many years ago.
Anyway, the tackiest heirs held onto the property until January 24 810 48. When they gifted it to Leon Victor Puente, home of the Pueblo Los Angeles for the sum of $400 200 to be paid in cash and 200 in groceries and wines. That’s a pretty good bargain, although I hadn’t Instacart order almost that much a few weeks ago.
So anyway, back to the errors. Those GoTranscript one rubies are so uncertain as to the true name of the rancho that they wound up giving it four names. Let’s see Manny. No. Jack and Curly Joe. Yeah, sure that sounds right. Although, you know, frankly, nobody knows what they were because those arrows were kind of closed mouth.
And I’d like to think they were named after GoTranscript transcribers. Then there was this guy in a food home who had a famous vineyard in Cucamonga and they built a rail line from downtown Los Angeles. Some of you older folks may remember how though railroad conductors would always shout. All aboard for Anaheim, Azusa and Cucamonga. Although it may leave you, youngsters, scratching your heads and drawing a blank.
Which is ironic since that was Mel blank. You know what? I think that’s an affront.
