I was born and raised in La Jolla. It was a nice place when I was a kid and the population of the Greater SD area was 120,000. Now there are just too many rats in the cage for me. Northern Cal I love. Southern Cal is a zoo. Some have nicer cages than others but it's still a zoo.
I got a sidecar to travel with my dog. He never complains, is delighted to be with me, approves of my dietary choices, is a social butterfly who helps me meet folks, appreciates a good beer, snuggles better than my wife, and hangs on my every word as if it's the most profound thing he's ever heard.
