Dec 29, 2009 - Horses and the Crystal Cathedral

Today was a long, busy and fun day. We packed a picnic lunch and headed out the door to get on the bus at 10:00 a.m. Our first stop was the Equestfest in Pasadena. All of the equestrian groups who will be appearing in this year's Rose Parade come to the Equestfest grounds to practice their routines and prepare for their appearance in the parade. As they practice, they put on a show at the grandstand which we got to watch. The horses were all absolutely beautiful. There were all types of shows from Indians to the Calvary, from fancy ladies...

Anyway - we headed east and turned at Ventura to head across the hills to Valencia, where we will be staying for the next week. -- We are at the Valencia Travel Village RV Resort.

Aug 9, 2005 - And so it begins....

With only 6 days left as a liberal American residing in my well preserved bubble, the panic is beginning to set in. On Sunday I will be leaving for Philadelphia for my staging (beginning training) for my two year term of service in South Africa. From there I will be going to New York where I will be flying to Africa on the 17/18. The response rate to the decision that I have made to do this has ranged from merely humorous to frightfully alarming. Thus far these are some of the best responses I've received. Some names have not been included...
