I am in California, land of the ubiquitous toilet seat protectors.  I’ve been away for almost nine months and it’s good to be back, even though I won’t be staying.  California certainly isn’t perfect but there is much that I miss about my adopted home of 30 plus years.

On the surface, New York City and Los Angeles seem to have little in common, other than the fact that they are both very large cities.
