Whale watch off San Diego aboard Soleil, Beneteau 323. We saw at least 4 whales; I was busy driving the boat and didn't get pictures of them.

+Judy Weismonger  Lots of behaviors, diseases, etc. require both a genetic predisposition and an environmental trigger.  You might be susceptible to a disease, but if you never get infected you never get it.  

There might well be an evolutionary basis for believing what authority figures tell you when you're young.  But that doesn't make you a suicide bomber unless someone tells you that there's a big reward in the next life, and you never get any educational that teaches you how to separate fact from fiction.

Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous year of the Yang for you and your family
The word for the eighth animal in the Chinese zodiac’s 12-year cycle of creatures in Mandarin does not make the distinction found in English between goats and sheep.

WHale watch 2/22/15 off San Diego aboard Soliel, Beneteau 323. There was a small craft advisory, so we tied in a reef (that is, didn't unroll the sails completely). We had great sailing but saw only a couple of distanty gray whale spouts. Several dolphons passed very close by, though.

Ken Knight in the Internet Sales department was the most knowledgeable and professional salesperson we spoke with during our entire car search, at other Honda as well as Kia and Mazda dealers. After he took us through the Costco auto purchase program (worth joining Costco just for that) and showed us the car we were interested in, my wife said she was comfortable buying the car right there and then, even though we had planned to see some more dealers.

The menu is pretty much standard Mexican-American: tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, mole, with a few modest innovations. The food is good if more authentically gringo than Mexican. The decor is very nice and the service is very good. I've been told that the margaritas are good. It's a good place for Mexican-American standards and a drink that's a little fancier than usual.

The roasted vegetable tapa and the seafood paella were delicious. Highly recommended.

The food is mediocre at best, and expensive at that. We had one terrible experience with a hostess and got a comped dinner; both times the seafood was so-so at best. It's a tourist view-of-the-bay place.

Good solid Cantonese food at very reasonable prices. The salt and pepper fried fish is delicious - beats conventional fish and chips any day. The Yu shiang eggplant (eggplant in the style of fish) is delicious also. The duck soup with leeks was just so-so, but other soups there are very good. The service is slow; I think they keep prices down by cutting back on the number of servers. As long as you aren't in a hurry, and you don't mind the informal ambience, it's a great place.

Genuinely authentic Italian pizza (not quite as thin crust at Rome style, but close) with good not excessive toppings. Octopus salad is terrific. Just a few salads, salumi appetizers, and the pizzas. Wood burning oven.
