    The cost of living is outrageous...and it's cold.

    Think Northern California, not Southern. We are just as sunny here...
    Just as sunny? For the two years I lived in San Fran it wasn't very sunny at all ... same for a lot of the coastal areas. You often had to wait until noon for the fog to burn off and some days it doesn't burn off at all ...

    As Mark Twain said: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

    I think he meant that SF was cold and come up to the REAL Northern California . . . . (shhhh Tazzi)

    Redding gets over 115 in the summer. We are over 100 here in the mountains but it cools off nicely at night.

    Right.

    However, if you have been following the thread (and who hasn't?) you will have picked up on the fact that SF is neither SoCal nor NorCal.

    At the moment, it's sort of NOCal, as we haven't quite figured out WHERE you are....

    She didn't tell you to shush, she told you to shhhh, which is a completely different language.

    Has anyone noticed that we, meaning the "WE" we, are all over forty? Could that be why we have all lost our minds?

    I will now chivalrously stand aside and allow one of the ladies to post the HUNDRETH post for this thread.

    I'm already teary-eyed....

    I am not nuts because I am over 40. I am nuts because I have children.

    I wonder about the songwriters. Was Silverwood a fruit, nut, or flake? What about Frankenstein?

    California State Song
    I Love You, California
    words by F.B. Silverwood, music by A.F. Frankenstein

    I love you, California, you're the greatest state of all.
    I love you in the winter, summer, spring and in the fall.
    I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I adore.
    I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.

    Chorus
    Where the snow crowned Golden Sierras
    Keep their watch o'er the valleys bloom,
    It is there I would be in our land by the sea,
    Every breeze bearing rich perfume.
    It is here nature gives of her rarest. It is Home Sweet Home to me,
    And I know when I die I shall breathe my last sigh
    For my sunny California.

    II.
    I love your red-wood forests - love your fields of yellow grain.
    I love your summer breezes and I love your winter rain.
    I love you, land of flowers; land of honey, fruit and wine.
    I love you, California; you have won this heart of mine.

    III.
    I love your old gray Missions - love your vineyards stretching far.
    I love you, California, with your Golden Gate ajar.
    I love your purple sun-sets, love your skies of azure blue.
    I love you, California; I just can't help loving you.

    IV.
    I love you, Catalina, you are very dear to me.
    I love you, Tamalpais, and I love Yosemite.
    I love you, Land of Sunshine, Half your beauties are untold.
    I loved you in my childhood, and I'll love you when I'm old.

    I think "love" is a rather strong word....

    How about, "trapped in..."
