We welcomed a new addition to the family this past week. The brother got married. Welcome to the family Audrey!

all in all, a good time. the ceremony was done at city hall on the 22nd. banquet was on the 25th. friends and family from all over the world gathered to celebrate.  particularly nice was the carmen visit. it seems that running around san francisco in november can be a lot of fun.

Oh, NBA television rights why do you hate me so?

of concern is the crushing footnote:

Sacramento Kings games are not available in the Bay Area due to NBA restrictions.
ESPNEWS and other programming will air during games and replays.

f-ing warriors.

the sound of 18,000 pennies marching out of my piggy bank . . .
