It's where Steve and Jamie grew up.

Between The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman are a number of episodes in which both Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers appear.

I bought a pair of Big Dog boxer shorts at a store in Ojai in the late 1990's. There was a music store that had some connection to Jackie Lomax, a George Harrison protégé who was one of the original Apple Records artists other than the Beatles.

Pronounced O Hi or OJ?

O Hi r13.

Has evolved over the decades from a sleepy vineyard and ranching town to early Cali-hippie earthy-crunchy outpost, to tourist-trappy weekend retreat for screenwriter and other Hwood types who want the privacy Malibu stopped providing.

There are some very good spas there as well as couple of decent boarding schools iirc. Still has a metaphysical-Eastern vibe, the international Theosophical Society was based there, still owns many acres and runs a school.

Somewhere, someone's calling.

6 o'clock on a Thursday evening I saw the smoke rise orange in the sky I watched the fire climb over the hilltops.

Canyon's burning Canyon's burning down.

Hear the trees crying All the years dying Fire has turned the hills into ashes And as the sun ran down from the sky The canyon burned.

Canyon's burning Canyon's burning down.

Ashes, long lying Memories, slow dying Fire has gone and the rain has fallen The winter has passed and the springtime is near But under the wind someone is calling.
