Just A Personal Note

In case anyone has noticed that blog posts have been somewhat irregular for the past two weeks, I would like to explain that I was experiencing the “Griswold Family Vacation.”  I will be writing about some of the things I saw in my visit to California in some future posts.  California is a beautiful state–I wish I could magically transport the Southern California weather to Massachusetts!

I will be posting an article about what is happening in the Central Valley in California, where extreme environmentalists have shut off the water to the farms.  This used to be the ‘bread basket’ of the nation–now it is miles and miles of empty fields.

I also had a chance to see the movie “Despicable Me” with two of my granddaughters.  It is a great movie for young children.  It has a really good message.  It is amazing what is being done with animation in today’s movies.

I spent a day at Knott’s Berry Farm (mostly at Camp Snoopy).   At the end of the day, the park sells holographic glasses that do amazing things to the lights in the park (only in California!).  The park was clean, well-run, and my granddaughters really enjoyed having their pictures taken with the Peanuts characters.

I also attended a family reunion in Santa Rosa and visited the Charles M. Schultz museum there.

Now it’s time to get back to work!
