Drove back with an over night in Santa Barbara and returned to Los Angeles today. It was a good vacation.
I'll post more later, including a possible update of the two (I remember emailing three) previous blogs. It looks like they were formatted poorly due poor translation between my Blackberry and Blogger. In tireless service (servitude?) to this blog, I composed them on my Blackberry and then waited to post by email until we returned to an area with wireless phone service.
