A Local Excursion

It’s been a busy weekend at The Aerie. With some trepidation, we went Saturday to provision ourselves for Thanksgiving and to our great surprise the stores we hit (Costco, Vons, and our local Asian market) weren’t terribly crazy. That meant that we were able to get more done than we thought we would, which subsequently…

Puppy Party Poll

With the US general election drawing closer and closer, there’s a lot of talk about parties, polls, and the choices facing undecided voters. Of course, some parties are easier to embrace than those with donkeys or elephants, and the Beloved and I got to spend a bit of our Saturday at a convention of sorts…

Central Coast Dog Days

Penny here. Most often, Friday nights are pretty easy around here. There’s usually a trip to the chaparral and then comes the drink-making (I never get one, but after they’ve had a couple, I can always count on more treats…) and the dinner-making and the whole weekend thing gets started. I like weekends. My people…

Vacation’s Dog Days

If there was anything that could be considered “the hard part” of two-plus weeks in France, it was that we couldn’t take Penny with us. Now, I don’t think that she would have liked Paris all that much (crowded streets, lots of traffic). But it was pretty easy to imagine a pointer running through the…

Good Buzz

One of the logistical things we were juggling before we went to France for vacation was whether we’d be able to take delivery of our all-electric BMW ActiveE before we left. Well, it turns out that it didn’t ship down from Oxnard until the day before we left, so we postponed delivery until we got home.…

Hunted It was the shortest day of the year, and the early morning light was still soft and gauzy, reflecting last night’s light snow – the first of the…

Chaparral Time

One thing we’ve begun to notice over the past several months is that Penny isn’t quite as worn out by our morning walk to the top of Mt Miramar as she used to be, and that she is almost always ready to go-go-go when we get home from work in the afternoon. At 2 ½…

Front Page Penny

It’s been a couple of good months for Penny’s Publicity Officer. Today there is an article in our local San Diego paper (SD Union Tribune) which ran a story about our company and one of the programs that we’re working on. I don’t usually go into work stuff here, but since Penny’s in the pictures,…
