You are probably correct. I think last year I basically worked for the state and federal governments for one third of the year. Regardless, if you want mild weather and enjoy outdoor activities, there is no better place in the country to be. You just have to be willing to pay for it.

If you want warm, there is no shortage of work in the energy industry to be found in California. This includes transmission (Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric) as well as renewables (Duke Energy, Iberdrola, BrightSource, etc.). Only the coastal towns and resort areas are expensive to live in. Inland property values are still way down and buying a house is pretty affordable right now. I will acknowledge that taxes are a little high.

I have a ceramic wine bottle shaped liked an Ohio State player. The stamp on the bottom reads:

Collectors Item

Vento Wine

Cleveland Ohio

Hand Painted

1980

I was going to post a pic, but I guess there is no way to upload pics on here anymore.

The response to the site update reminds me of when I switched my company last year from a custom-built intranet site that was a pain in the ass to maintain to SharePoint. About half the staff were filled with glee at how much easier everything was. The other half thought it sucked when they just figured out how to use the old site.

Using IE 11 (Desktop) on a Surface Pro it is not possible to log in to the site using the on-screen keyboard. The login dropdown will not persist open if touched by your finger. It will only stay open if tapped with the screen pen, but then closes again as soon as I type on the keyboard. I have no such issues in IE 11 on my full size TouchSmart computer, which is where I'm typing this now.

This thread makes me want to visit Stone in Pasadena. I haven't been there since they opened, but I love their beers.

If you have a place to go to, I can't recommend trail running enough. There will be less wear and tear on your body. I run 50 and 100 mile mountain races. I can't fathom doing the same distance on asphalt and concrete. I'm convinced I'd die. You can train on trails for road races, too. I exclusively trained on trails in preparation for the LA Marathon.

I would not have guessed that after spending Saturday with my family on the Palos Verdes Peninsula at Terranea Resort. The whole place was packed with Auburn fans here for the game, and that is a really pricey resort that is nowhere close to Pasadena...

This is one of the few games in memory where we were winning at halftime and I felt like we were losing. Better than losing at the half!

I'm over there quite a bit. All kinds of stuff being built in that area, temporarily, for the Rose Parade and bowl games, as there is every year.

What's the issue with Al Jazeera? They're highly regarded for their objective news coverage.
