My view at breakfast. Hard to be cranky looking at this.

I am making good choices. Everyone at these things drinks like crazy, and no one can really believe I quit drinking. I think it says more about them than me that they find not drinking unbelievable.

My cardiologist would approve of this breakfast. On the road and by yourself is the hardest time to eat healthy.

I saw a graphic on the news that 3 or 4 of the top 10 most expensive areas to live are in California. (New York, surprisingly, did not make the list). One of the areas listed was Santa Cruz. As I sit here eating beautiful berries, I wonder how long those berry fields in Santa Cruz county can hold off urban demand. California's housing problems and regulatory environment may change the way we eat.
