Painted Lines on the Freeway ... what does this mean?

What are all of these lines supposed to mean?

I noticed these lane markings on the side of the High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane on Interstate 5.  Does anyone recognize this odd combination of a solid white PLUS double-solid-yellow?  What does it mean ... if I cross it for any reason will I have to pay a $2,000 fine?

I went to the California DMV website.  There is no way to ask a question via the Internet.  Their website links to the drivers' handbook, but that scholarly work does not answer this question.

Emirates Stewardess looks like ZZ Top?

Watching a presentation at the BNP Paribas tennis championships.  For a moment it looked like those Emirates Airlines ladies were wearing ZZ Top beards.

Special Guests at the BNP Paribas Tennis Championship
They got legs AND beards?
They play tennis?

Tennis at Indian Wells

We had a nice four-day weekend in the California desert, highlighted by watching tennis pro's battle for the BNP Paribas Open Title.

Gloria protected by her hero, Roger Federer.

Linda and Paulette smile for the camera,
unaware that Rafa is about to smash a forehand
in their direction.
