San Diego in 2006

We visited San Diego in late winter 2006. That matters purely for date-keeping purposes, since the weather in San Diego is famously constant and pleasant throughout the year. And so it was while we were there; I think it drizzled a bit one day and the rest of the time it was sunny and pleasant, in the high 60s and low 70s.

We loved the port area and that’s where we spent most of our time, although we ventured into the hills and the rest of the city for a bit. Ligia in particular loved her time there and still praises the city and its wonderful weather to this day, six years later.

Hope you enjoyed the photos!


Wondering when California's budget is going to get fixed

One great thing about California is they’re not allowed to go into debt, like the federal government. They must always balance their budget. And yet the California legislature has failed to address this problem and has let deadline after deadline slip by, in seeming mockery, in spite of Gov. Schwarzenegger’s continued pleas and coaxing. When in the world will they get their act together?

Governor discusses state budget in weekly address

Anyone from California care to clue me in? Seems to me the legislature’s stalling because they have their own agenda and want to spite Schwarzenegger. What he’s saying makes sense to me. Is there another side to this story that I don’t know about?
