Farewell San Diego!

San Diego skyline just past sunset, looking towards Tijuana on the Mexican border, Sunday, May 4, 2008.
And so, my trip is over and I am returning home this morning, going directly to work after my plane lands. It's been a great weekend, thanks to Mersedeh's hospitality. Talking the night away with friends, I didn't get any sleep last night, much like the night before! I'll come back and write a proper post tonight if I can keep awake!
Those of you who live in these parts should know about an event which will take place tomorrow night. Reese Erlich and Norman Solomon, two reputable American journalists and authors, will be speaking at Mt. Diablo Peace and Justice Center, 55 Eckley Lane, Walnut Creek, CA 94596 at 7:00 p.m. The topic will be "The Elections, Iraq and Iran: How the Major Media Distort the News and What You Can Do About It." (For more information, call Mary Alice O'Connor (925) 933-7850).
If you still have your calendars handy, please also note that Ostad Mohammad Reza Shajarian and Ava Ensemble will perform at Cupertino's Flint Center next Saturday, May 10th, 2008. Tickets at ticketmaster.com, Flint Center Information: (510)885-8200.
Have a good Monday you all!

Nazy Jan,
Thank you for featuring the city of San Diego on your blog. It was fun having you visit and I certainly hope you will considering coming down again real soon.

Samantha also thanks you for posting her picture on your blog, although she is not "totally" pleased with you. I think she is still a little upset over the fact that you repeatedly referred to her as "HE" instead of "She" and you even called her FAT!!

After those insults, I guess she expected her feature in your blog to be more in depth and a more "personal" account of the trials and tribulations of the past 15 years of her existence and the challenges that she faces as a "do-rageh" Iranian-American feline living in southern California. I have assured her that you will not let her story go untold and you will one day tell it to the world!

Have a fabulous week and try to catch up on sleep....(even though you are ahead of me by about a night's worth!)
