Lovely climate - 7/29/2007
I admit I miss a stronger delineation of seasons, but there is a lot to be said for the climate here. It's rarely unbearably hot and it's never bitterly cold. It seems we have two seasons, not four: wet (winter) and dry (summer). In summer, anything not watered by humans is brown and dead, but there's a positive side: it's not humid enough here to support lots of mosquitos and the like.

The high cost of earthquake insurance - 3/7/2007
My wife and I live in an 1100 sq. ft condo in a gated community of 96 units. We bought in 1994 for $189K and our home has appreciated to at least $500K. That's the good news.

Sunnyvale, California - 6/23/2006
It is in the heart of Silicon Valley. Many of the Hi-Tech companies are located in this area. Moffett field and Lockheed are about 15 minutes away in the city of Mountain View. I am surrounded by the cities of Cupertino and Santa Clara.

Sunnyvale is about 30 minutes away from Stanford University in Palo Read More
