Site Update
image I've been visiting family in Virginia this week, so posting has been pretty light... and will continue to be light until July 11th. Just in case anyone was wondering. That thumbnail there shows part of the Chesapeake Bay visible from my parents' front lawn. It's a lot nicer than the view of a busy road that you get from my house in San Diego (even though I much prefer San Diego weather).

Sure, sure, you were in Virgina. That picture proves it. - Okay, so I'm envious.

This is the biggest hoax I've heard in a long time! Visiting your family in Virgina, as if anyone would believe that! Well, some people might, but after visiting your site for a long time, I know better. You just don't want to update!

(I'm just kidding, in case you couldn't tell.)

Having lived nearly 30 years in SoCal, I can
tell you first-hand that California weather
is BORING. 80 degrees and sunny or 68 degrees and overcast.

East coast weather is more unpredictable. Give me a THUNDERSTORM for chryssake, high winds, blizzards, ANYTHING but dull weather.
I want SEASONS. Screw the convenience of
never having to use an umbrella...I like umbrellas.

On the other hand, to be fair, just because the entire
population of Southern CA are pussies does not
make them wrong.

it must be a hoax! why is the Chesapeake Bay visible from the front lawn instead if the back??? The picture must be photoshopped.
