It's been beautiful here in the Bay Area the past couple of days. Thetemperature has been in the low seventies with plenty of sun and a breezeoff the Bay.

The current weather in the Bay Area is in stark contrast to the weatherwe had in Boston while I visited there last weekend. Chilly, rainy,and snowy would best describe the conditions on the East Coast while I wasthere. To offset this, however, the East Coast has plenty of Dunkin'Donuts franchises, which the West Coast sorely lacks. After seeing AlmostFamous, I'm glad that Kate Hudson did not win the Oscar for BestSupporting Actress. In fact, I was actually surprised she wasnominated.

We also saw TheInsider recently. The film was okay, but it certainly held nothingback in its criticisms of CBS, Sixty Minutes, and Mike Wallace.
