Boston is Important

Boston is an important city. You might think it's not important, but it is. Although Boston is nowhere nearly as important as New York City. Chicago is important, being the center of the farm belt and the heartland. Texas is important -- that's just the way it is. And California is important. Here's a few reasons.

California is the number one farm state -- They grow more food here than anywhere else.

California has the most people.

And the most immigrants --- California will rise or fall on the strength of immigration -- but they all want to come here.

California is number one in baseball -- with five major league teams, the Padres, Dodgers, Angels, Athletes and Giants.

California has the best-looking women.

Texas is a close second overall -- they have Ted Cruz.

For countries, Mexico is important, but Canada is not important. Canada is a very nice country, but it's not important.

Other nice places -- Seattle, Minneapolis, Denver, for example -- are good places to live, but they are not important.

But for some reason, Boston, not an especially large city, is important.

What is important?

“No, I’m not angry at anyone. No human being can do anything important enough for that. You get angry at people when you feel that their actions are important. I don’t feel that way any longer.”

–The Teachings of Don Juan

I need to point out what is obvious.

Being important is not really important.

Coming to Seattle and the Skagit in mid-August

Laurie and I are coming to Seattle and the Skagit in mid-August for about a week. We will need to bring sweaters and socks, I guess. Climate change! Culture shock! But it will be fun to see friends and family.

Figuring two nights in Seattle, two nights in Anacortes, two nights in Victoria, and then one more night in Seattle. We hope to see Butchart Gardens among other things, but don't want to over-plan this, just pay for the plane tickets and bring money.

My daughter lives in Ballard -- we will stay with her. We'll stay with friends in Anacortes. We'll book a lodge in Victoria -- anybody know a good place to stay in that town?

See ya,

Signing up for the particular Wilton Process Redecorating Principles Study course is
good for those people thinking of getting a jump in cake adorning.
There are different gestures for different moments, moods and each gesture
is unique in its own way. Cake decorating is absolutely not confined to large cakes
by any means.
