This actually sounds like something Chris would be great at. But he's probably staying busy with that little CEO gig he's doing these days. ;-)

Are you sure you want to live in Berkeley, CA? Remember what Mark Twain said about San Francisco: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco" or something like that:-)

Hahaha yes Tom!  I have been talking about moving to either California or Florida since I was a 4 years old.  I hate the harsh change of seasons :) so either I'm moving in with you Tom or 3DR.  Who's gonna take me in?! :)

When I was in the Navy I went to Electronic Tech A school on Treasure Island which is in the middle of the Bay between Oakland and San Francisco and the Bay Bridge passes over it. The school is long gone, but I can still remember standing watch on the west end of the island that faced Alcatraz and being able to lean into the very cold wind out over the breakwater in the early fall:-)


TCIII An old Navy salt:-)
