Hello Everyone
Hope you are all coping well in this heatwave? I was fortunate enough
to get out of town for a few days down in Palm Springs. It was actually cooler there! I borrowed Craig's gorgeous mid century holiday home,
completed by a refreshing saltwater pool.
see more photos here
There is a Brits in LA rental rate, so if you are interested in staying at this 3 bedroom home, contact Craig for info.
We already have our football team the BLAggers,
who are currently 6th in the LA Premier League , but for those of you looking for more of a casual thing,
 join our latest group Brits in LA Kickabout


You may recall that Brits in LA recently sponsored Lundu's education in Africa? Click here to read a letter and some photographs
that arrived this this week
Lots of fun stuff coming up over the next week. I will be attending The Citizens Band show at the Avalon on Wednesday. Hope to see some of you there? When buying tickets don't forget to enter the
discount code BritsinLA.
Paul Oakenfold is also playing at the Avalon this Saturday.
Lots of other fun events in this weeks newsletter too,
so make sure to read all the way through so you don't miss out.
Great discounts from LA Theatreworks, Anaheim Helicopters and also
Eden Sassoon. Kings Head II also offering a discount during the day.
Craig had a Sunday Roast there a few weeks ago and loved it.
Mark your calendars for our pub crawl on September 25th.
Talking of pubs, one of our favourites, The Cat and the Fiddle are celebrating 30 years this October and will have some very special 1980's prices in store for us during the week of their birthday.
Click here for all the details.
We are going to be sending out information next week
for you all to join our Red Cross running team, for a short charity run on November 11.
I also thought it might tie in nicely to ask the Red Cross
if they could host a Brits in LA First Aid Course,
as think this would be really useful for a lot of us.
So watch this space...

ARIES.

Please be kind to another who may be feeling sorry for themselves this week.
This person is really not having  a good experience in life and needs your support.

TAURUS

What has been a problem will melt away like snow in sunshine. You need
to get moving and grooving and start the week in good form and energy.

GEM
What can you achieve this week is up to how willing you are to make the right connections. Holding back for the right time is wasting time.

CAN
If you continue to hold on to grudges you will be on the wrong end of the stick
this week in a situation that will require to keep your temper or cool.

LEO.
The powerhouse planet Mars is in a difficult position for you in that you could clash with others you would not normally clash with. So remember to think before you speak.

VIR
Any task you take on will be easier to deal with than for the last few weeks and as this will last until the end of this month  make it the priority to complete. Happy Birthday

LIB
Travel is much on your mind and this can make you a bit antsy if you cannot get away right now. The clue is to make an effort to keep busy or to take short trips to  visit interesting places.

SCOR
You are getting nearer to the best time of the year for you, Autumn and as these next few weeks ahead your powerful ruler Mars is bringing many gifts and opportunities to advance Its about time .!!


SAG,
You may need to be alone a little more this coming week and if you could travel to a quiet peaceful place this will help .Although you are the mildest of fire signs you still can stir up a fire ,Just don’t burn yourself.


CAP

Change is not always good but this next week it will be inevitable so be prepared to accept what you cannot change as Pluto in your signs rules the underworld and is in your life for a long time so lay low until December.


AQU
Any unfinished business from the past will require you to not make any waves this week ahead as in the end you will not win, however the reward will be at last it’s done and no one can change that


PISC
You will benefit from taking a break away with close friends or family this week.
As the  past few weeks have been full of problems in varying degrees for some of you
 This to will pass even if you cant believe that is so.
