Come 2015 when my youngest daughter graduates high school, this East Coast, Arizona transplant will be coming home to Ventura County. Besides, UC schools have a reciprocal in state tuition agreement with Arizona so my ocean loving daughter can join me and get a first class education. Another plus!

Funny story, I was at a game with my mother, the Red Sox fan, and I had to beg her to stop booing Manny. You should have been there for the reception we would give Bonds though! Manny at least knows he has a problem and has served a punishment for it; Bonds rode off into the sunset like some super-charged gorilla.

And seriously, you're gonna put La Brea up against Acme or any of a half-dozen other bakeries I can't name right now (largely because I can't get them in San Jose)?

8. The Bay Area, as a whole.
9. I live in Sacramento which a VERY pretty city and county

However, I'd only leave the state if I were blasted out, Socal, Central or Norcal. I LOVE MY STATE.

Oh yeah, Sonoma, Mendocino and Humboldt counties!!

Also the only place I know where, on a drive of only 15 miles, you can use the car heater and air conditioner both. I did that a few times when I lived by S.F. Bay and made trips to Orinda. There may be places where you do that driving up a mountain, but this is level terrain except for a row of small hills.

60. Some things are being done.

Not as fast as we'd like but there are increasing efforts to extract energy from our resources.

Some of the slowness is probably politics but also it takes a long time to build power plants on the scale needed to supply communities. There are several projects that are being constructed right now but none are online yet.

Also many of the technologies aren't ready for industrial use yet. They have to be pretty efficient and robust before communities can start to rely on them and many are still in the experimental phase.

There are several ideas for getting energy from the ocean and tests are being done right now but none have yet proven to be the reliable, efficient system we really need.

Unfortunately science is a very time consuming process and turning science into functioning technology can take even longer.

65. Ramen, brother, ramen.

Or, as Warren Beatty, his friend since 1970, sums up: “I think what you’re saying is he’s not full of s- - -.”

A lot of people are saying that, now that he’s done what was long assumed impossible: balance the California budget. This is California, the Greece of America, the liberal state that wants to spend on everything and the libertarian state that won’t pay for anything. Californians are so committed to their faulty economic theory that they built laws to enshrine it: The legislature has to pass tax hikes by a two-thirds vote, and citizens can put new laws on the ballot as propositions. When Brown took office two years ago, the state had a $27 billion deficit. Standard & Poor’s (MHP) rated California’s credit the worst of the 50 states, and 24/7 Wall St. ranked it as the worst-run state in its 2011 and 2012 surveys.

This year, California will have an $850 million budget surplus in the coming fiscal year. Unemployment, which peaked at 12.4 percent just before Brown took office, is 9.4 percent. S&P has upgraded its outlook on the state. Confidence remains fragile, according to a survey of 1,142 large and small business leaders conducted by the California Business Roundtable: More than six out of 10 say it’s still harder to do business in California than in other states. But 24 percent of businesses say they plan to add jobs this year, compared with 16 percent that intend to cut them.

http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-minimum-wage-20130913,0,1527959.story

SACRAMENTO — A bill that would boost California's minimum wage to $10 an hour by 2016 won approval by the state Legislature on Thursday and was sent to Gov. Jerry Brown, who said he would sign it.

The measure would raise the current $8 minimum wage to $9 an hour next July 1 and to $10 on Jan. 1, 2016.

The 25% increase would be the first minimum-wage hike in California in five years and would put extra money in the pockets of an estimated 2.4 million Californians.
