alan - purple flowers


The restaurant Manresa was an incredible experience.  I am still digesting it, both literally and figuratively.  I had no idea the food, display, atmosphere and service would be so amazing.  Of course, I knew the company would be great, and it was.  :)

Jeff and Jan set their home up as a B & B for us, and flowers were in our room and bathroom with an assortment of candies on our pillows and beautiful new towels and blueberry pancakes, bacon, and eggs if we wanted them for breakfast.

Unfortunately, we had to scurry away as I need to be in Napa this afternoon for a writer's conference that begins today and ends on Friday.  I am hoping my aging lap-top holds up so I can check in while I'm there.

There is sun on each end of the fog which engulfs us here.   Happy Sunday and beyond!!

The George W Bush Presidential Library is now in the planning stages. You'll want to be the first at your corporation to make a contribution to this great man's legacy.
The Library will include:

The Hurricane Katrina Room , which is still under construction.
The Alberto Gonzales Room, where you can't remember anything.
The Texas Air National Guard Room, where you don't have to even show up.
The Walter Reed Hospital Room, where they don't let you in.
The Guantanamo Bay Room, where they don't let you out.
The Weapons of Mass Destruction Room (which no one has been able to find).
The Iraq War Room.  After you complete your first tour, they make you to go back for a second, third, fourth, and sometimes fifth tour.
The Dick Cheney Room, in the famous undisclosed location, complete with shooting gallery.
Plans also include: The K-Street Project Gift Shop - where you can buy (or just steal) an election.
The Airport Men's Room, where you can meet some of your favorite Republican Senators.
Last, but not least, there will be an entire floor devoted to a 7/8 scale model of the President's ego.
To highlight the President's accomplishments, the museum will have an electron microscope to help you locate them.
When asked, President Bush said that he didn't care so much about the individual exhibits as long as his museum was better than his father's.
