The CE and I are comparing notes…East coast or West coast? At any given moment, would you rather be shivering in New York City or here in Southern California? The weather (58 degrees here; 62 in NYC today) is a toss-up. But there are clear differences between the two venues. In New York, for example, no one has come to our door to report that a dead, rotting skunk is lodged under the swimming pool cover. So today was a day we would rather have been there than here.
However, on this coast we have dogs and cats and chickens, oh my, and, for a limited time only, we also have Daniel!
