Don't know as much about San Jose, but over the montains to Santa Cruz on the coast is nice.
    PS The Beach Boys were talking about Southern California girls, so that's where you should go if that's what you wanna see. Go in summer and hit the beaches from LA down to San Diego and you'll see what they were talking about.
    No, I'm going to Perkin Elmer for a Total Chrom Principles of Operation class. Believe me, San Hose ain't a destination. I'll have a car and on Friday I plan to go to the Steinhart Aquarium. It's in Golden Gate Park and I've wanted to go there forever!

    I grew up in Palos Verdes. Got there in 1953 (on a covered wagon, I know!) and left in 69 (the Summer of Love ). I spent lots of time in Torrance, Redondo, Hermosa, Manhattan, Venice beaches just to name a few. I passed out listening to lots of Beach Boys songs. Pet Sounds was a great album.

    there were no covered wagons then! i remember! plus you would have still been in plastic training pants. come to think of it, that still could have been the wild west. have they minted any west coast state quarters yet?

    I have two brothers who've served in Iraq, one is going back in December. I guess I was hoping Kerry would get into office so my brother didn't have to go back. Blood for Oil. If we spent half the money on an alternative fuel source as we have on this war we would be much better off. I have a friend who's currently in Iraq, will be for another year, he keeps me well informed as to what's going on over there. It's a shame we're still there, I guess 1100 bodies weren't enough.

    Looks kinda like Rick Foxx, but it's too fuzzy. Hey, U.B., did you hear about that solo album that Brian Wilson did around the same time as Pet Shop sounds but never released until now? I heard some of it on the radio, it's pretty good. He had the same guy doing the lyrics, metaphoric hippie stuff but stilll really nice.

    Re: Chaintech 24, a Place to Hang Your Chips

    To all the non-amricans wondering about our electoral prosses for the prez its like this. Every state has 2 representitives to start. Then there are 438 representitives that are assiened by population value (i.e texas has 32 and ohio has 20 because of ohios smaller population as compaored to texas). 38 states have rules in their consitiutions that say if the popular vote has a majority for one canidite then ALL representitive from that sate have to vote in line with that. Only some of the samller less crutial sates have other chartes (like main whom can split theirs even with the populare vote).
    I personaly think that the system is a little out dated and subject to abuse, but it works for the most part.

    Yes, the other one is Bernie Williams. Actually? They were both really nice fellas. It's in the dungeon of the Safeco Field in Seattle. A friend of mine is great friends with Jeters agent, only way a low life like me got in there with security so tight! I was kinda amazed. I wanted to think he / they were a bunch of stuckup snooty punks, no way was that the truth!
