We had a number of memorable experiences this year. Candy Cane Lane. Brunch with friends. Men’s chorus and dinner after.
Went to see the movie at the Sonoma County Airport Stadium theater. Can’t say anything about the film – Thought maybe I should observe a sensible spoiler margin for a few days here…
Last night we went to see “The Last Jedi.” (Do not read below the fold until you’ve seen the movie, or if you don’t care about spoilers. This is not a review, it’s simply some of my reactions.)
…for some reason on this day, I rose at about 4am and sat with my computer to catch up on games, and recreational reading. I worked at the dining room table for a couple of hours, savoring the quiet of the pre-dawn morning. At about 6am, the household landline began to ring. (Yes, we stillContinue reading “Wildfire”

Fortunately, Lays launched another of its marketing programs designed to have people suggestContinue reading “Do Us A Flavor”
What happens when you discover an expired passport on the way to the airport?
…tonight we’re still experiencing the “atmospheric river” that will continue to flow into the heartland, bring storms across the continent in the coming week. For us, it’s rain and wind – and what a dramatic show it is! I had to step outside for a call with clients in the UK at 3:30am (which explainsContinue reading “Rain Sounds”
…you know, when I started this journal, it was simply an exercise in writing regularly, and an opportunity to try out some writing styles that I don’t get to employ on a day to day basis. I write, of course, a great deal for my work, and a great deal in response to my driveContinue reading “Reconnect”
