Last night was truly a memorable Thanksgiving with family and friends. There is nothing like good food, wine and taking time to reflect on how lucky most of us are to be living freely in the US. Yes, we've got our issues: our current administration will go down as one of the worst run governments in modern times, there is an increasing disparity between rich and poor, much of the world hates us and our unwillingness to take action for our fuck-ups, whether they are environmentally, diplomatically or militarily oriented. Nonetheless, ours is still an accepting country, one of opportunity for many. Nowhere on earth is there such a wide array of people from different backgrounds, living together in the same towns and cities. These were all things we discussed briefly last night before dining, and it was cool to have different perspectives from young and old, 1st generation and 3rd generation Americans, left and further left (we did not purposefully exclude the right, it's just that, you know, it's California).

I would add a brief photo diary of yesterday, but as I couldn't find my camera all photo's were taken on my phone, which does not sync with my Mac. At least not without buying software and doing lots of fancy footwork that I don't have time to do right now. So look for the photo's a little later. Also, as is customary, some good hip-hop (or maybe reggae today) will soon be up for your listening and viewing pleasure. Maybe a couple of informal restaurant reviews? Lots to catch up on here...Happy Friday.
