Here it is, just a month and a half before I head to Istanbul, and I'm already in the planning stages for a September trip to Australia!

Uh...that's about all I've got. Man, I'm a lousy blogger.

Hey, It's 2006!

Thank you, Mother Nature, for not raining on my personal parade this New Year's.

I thought for sure I'd be struggling with wind-shredded umbrellas and soaked shoes, but it turned out that the storm passed through San Francisco by late Saturday morning; when I arrived, the skies were appropriately blue and the sun was shining.

I was at the Ferry Building at midnight, and the fireworks show was a lot of fun.

The rain I did encounter hit on my drive home from the airport on Sunday afternoon. Phooey!

Sunday night I was over at my friends Tony & Kevin's for a New Year's dinner which they prepared. So good! And they had some interesting (and, in one instance, cute) friends over too.
