Los Altos Tweets About Fathers Day, Festival Theater Ensemble and the Price of Aaron Spelling's Mansion

A news story sparks speculation whether the Spelling Manor sale outstrips LAH's $100 million house, the history museum wants art about water, and there's an intriguing 'never nude' comment.

Can Aaron Spelling's French chateau-style manse beat Yuri Milner's French chateau-inspired digs? A Wall Street Journal story about the rumored sale of the famous television producer's former L.A. home called "The Manor," triggered tweets speculating whether Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone paid close enough to the reported $150 million asking price to push Los Altos Hills' reported $100 million house off the nation's highest- home-price throne.

The Los Altos History Museum is looking for art for its water-focused exhibit, a child is looking for her hippo doll, and plenty of people found produce and pancakes as the Rancho Farmers Market kicked off Saturday.

A music booker commented on live music heard in Los Altos. We eavesdropped on an intriguing "never nude" comment. And one Los Altan went twice in one week to see free Shakespeare in the Park in Sunnyvale—the theater company production that got away from Los Altos this summer.
