Ivy on a Santa Cruz building
Last weekend, we visited my son at UC Santa Cruz – to see his new apartment and hang out for a while in one of my favorite Bay Area places. The UC Santa Cruz campus is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen – its literally in a redwood forest.

We had an excellent product launch of the first commercial product that I designed, helped code and deliver. It has been an overwhelming success, exceeding my hopes and dreams.
As expected, this summer flew by, and was a great one – one that I will remember as being one of the better summers. My neighbors two trees are the sentinels of first fall color, and this weekend signals the unofficial end of summer. In the recent week or so its actually been perfect weather wise – some nights have been flirting with dropping into the 40’s, and during the day barely hitting 70 – so its been just perfect all around.
We usually get about 6 more weeks of warm weather, then it starts really feeling like fall in the second half of October – and the end of year festivities begins.
