What a great night. My 3-year-old was thrilled by the train and the serious rain held off until we reached our car at the California/Bryant parking garage.

What a shame. I get this in my Monday digest for an event on Saturday that I would certainly have gone to.

Glad it was a good time!

Oh wow, so 24 hours notice is the next best thing to 48 hours later?!?

There was absolutely no mention of Kwanzaa or the winter solstice on the holiday train. Talk about being racist, bigoted, and not inclusive. Clearly this is a hateful right wing 1%er conspiracy. They should be taxed more. I shall circulate a petition for an appropriate proposition on the next ballot.
