Post  Cajun Cappy on 12/14/2015, 11:07 pm

Nice to see some traditions still exist. Some grumpy 1%'ers that have their beachfront McMansions got upset with the commoners using "their" beach for bonfire gatherings and actually coerced the city of Carmel California to ban campfires on the beach, citing health hazards from the smoke. The hypocrites -every one of those beachfront manors have 2 or more fireplaces, but I guess that those don't count. Only in California Mad Mad Mad
