The first week of September recipes will be forthcoming (it’s under preparation – this month is fish) a day late due to:

  1. the holiday or
  2. my laziness or
  3. possibly both.

In the meantime, if you were me, and you had a week’s vacation in October, and you were going to visit all your friends in Northern California, would you:

  1. fly to California, then rent a car and drive amongst them
  2. rent a car and road-trip all the way (my car not being up to such a trip)

The cost is approximately the same for either option.  And none of the friends live particularly close to airports or each other.
