    Did go you a little further south into Big Sur ?

    I remember years ago there was talk of selling Yosemite National Park to the Japanese.

    I think the Germans have their eyes on Death Valley.
    No, I didn't get to the Big Sur, unfortunately. She was driving. She had/has a large motor home, so after leaving Pebble Beach, we traveled up the coast, ate salads with steaks for dinner that she cooked on a little grate right on the sand at the Pacific Ocean's edge, and then we slept in the motor home. And that was only the first first day of my trip, too. Wow! Every day it was something new and exciting to see....

    Ate a lot of salads did you ?

    That area just east of Monterey around Salinas is known as the "Salad Bowl of America."

    Catroville just north of Monterey is the "Artichoke Capital of the World."

    That "Ram Rod Club" in San Fransisco that looks like a country western bar isn't country western.

    Thats a pretty low bar you have set there.

    Hmmph.....I live in NorCal and I've never heard of this place.
    You seem to have done a lot of in-depth research.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Dont forget Gilroy garlic, or San Diego Avocado's.

    And the "Male Box" in Palm Springs has NOTHING to do with the mail.

    Liberals are big on salivating over any good news, even if it's raping the tax payer to gain a few bucks, but there is no mention of them paying down California's gross debt.

    Also saw The Winchester House in San Jose; the Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz where the gravity isn't normal...

    With a name like "Ram Rod Club," in San Francisco.... lemme guess

    Arnold gets a bad rap as guv.
    He pushed for financial reform and was able to put several reform initiatives on the ballot.
    They were all rejected by the electorate.
    After those initiatives failed, he was just treading water, and the 2008 financial collapse drowned the guy.

    I sure didn't vote for that girly man, I voted for McClintock.
    McClintock??
    The professional politician?
    Jeez, the guy moves all over the state, from district to district, in an effort to keep his GOVERNMENT job.
    The only guy worse than Tom is Dan Lunngren.
    They're both career bureaucrats.
    Beats working, I guess.

    EDIT: Not really a fan of Arnie's anymore....the guy humiliated his girl...unforgivable.
