Also a lousy shot, sorry. Taken at Big Morongo Canyon. Probably just another Song, but the bill seems long and the streaking isn't all that extensive, so I just wanted to check...

Thanks again!

Been really busy at work, so haven't had much chance to sample it. So far, food is great, traffic sucks, and the important things like gas and rent are really expensive.

Hey, Harpo!

Indeed I did. Got an opportunity for a new job, and I couldn't pass it up. Glad I got to meet you in person once before I skipped town :)

Hope the move is going well for you, despite the downgrade of going from Florida to California (just kidding!.... kind of)

Yeah, I know what you mean by "kind of". I wish they'd just have opened up an office in Florida for me :)

On the other hand, I should also mention that the weather is really good here. I mean, really, really good. I can't wait for summer, then I'll be laughing at all my friends in hot, humid Orlando :) In some ways, I guess you get what you pay for here.

Good for you. Hope everything works out. Looking forward to seeing some of the birds you see out there.
