    if I wanted a taste of California I would go to Hailey.

    I actually spent my senior year in high school at Cupertino H.S., less than a mile from where Apple now is. Lived just over the line in Saratoga. Back when our neighbors across the street were plum trees.

    Then 1967 happened and I went off to Michigan (Ann Arbor), got used to having seasons (we had come from Texas in 1966, talk about a culture shock, lol), and never went back to warm climates again.

    Even in 1967 I felt like I would never be able to afford a house in CA, and just kept losing ground on that score ever since.

    I do make it a point to visit CA about once every 10 years or so. I'm about 10 years overdue at the moment.

    Moderation in most things.
