Merry Christmas 2009!

The above image is, The Candle

Today's song is Merry Christmas Darling by The Carpenters, released in 1970.

I received a wonderful holiday treat this past week. My best friend, Bill Artus (shown below), came to San Diego for a visit. I last saw Bill in July in Chicago. I took Bill around to various places in San Diego last Tuesday.

The picture above is from Wyland Galleries located at Seaport Village near beautiful San Diego Bay.

This was Bill's first visit to San Diego. It's the first time I introduced him to a new place. It previously was always his introducing me to a place he'd been. It only took me 40 years to be the first!

Earlier in the day I took him to Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park where I remain a charter volunteer docent. Afterwards I took him to the coast where we drove along to Old Town San Diego and had lunch at the Cafe Coyote.

We caught up we with each other's lives all day long. As usual it was as if we hadn't seen each other in only a few days. That's how it is between us, we are brothers in so many ways. Thanks, Bill!

The year 2009 is almost over, many changes in many areas of life. I am enjoying all the gifts of life, my family and friends this holiday season. Merry Chistmas to you all!


One of the countless places Bill and I traveled together in the past was Santa Barbara, California's Arlington Theater. We were there together back in February 1972. It's one of the coolest theater's I've ever attended. Shown below is a picture of me there in March 1999.


My friend, John Stenbeck, is a great teacher in helping people pass project management certifications.


My friend, Bob, sent me this link On Memory: Recalling music:

"Unlike odours, it is easily preserved over time, either abstractly on paper, or as a learned skill, or in records, tapes and discs. Paying attention to it requires deep cognitive processing of its quasi-mathematical structure, which is known to help preserve memories. And it comes complete with a built-in emotional aspect -- either in its own tempo and melody or through the context in which it is usually heard -- that likewise promotes long-lasting recollection."


Mary is a new friend on my Facebook Wall, if you're interested in Angel Card Readings, take a look at her website, Tranquil Waters.


I always thought FireWire would be faster than USB.
