    FABULOUS convention. The rest is details. Just fabulous.

    Back to money: On a 10-mins-away room Wed and Hilton Th-F-S, both shared with a roomie, on outdoor parking, meals, drinks alcoholic and not, a couple of meals, and about $35 in tips to everyone from food trucks to housekeepers, I spent about $450 on the ground in San Jose.

    Obviously, the bulk of that - about $320 - was on the hotels. I brought breakfasts b/c it was cheaper, quicker, and more healthful*, and was pretty conservative for the most part, except for splurging on the hotel attached to the convention. I wonder if this is a pretty typical expense.

    *plain yogurt, granola, and a banana. Perfectly delicious!

    We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.
