My poor old laptop gave up the ghost leaving me with only my phone to get online for a few weeks there, meaning little posting and no podcasting. But the new one is here and after a couple of days of set up and updates (man Windows 10 is a bear of a download) I’m back online properly.
Thanksgiving came and went with no news on my visa, but I did get to spend time with Ashley. She was in town for a few days and we toasted goodbye to San Francisco repeatedly and at several places that I hadn’t had a good excuse to check out before. Among them the Starlight Lounge at the top of the Sir Francis Drake (not what I expected but surprisingly fun), the Redwood Room at the Clift (fab, and so much friendlier that I would have expected), Hogwash (delicious, cozy, and friendly to boot), and the Library at Bourbon & Branch (so fun!) all in all it was a very fun visit and a good send-ff. Hopefully.
Meanwhile I continue to wait. Will obviously be spending the holidays here, but expect to hear soon and be able to plan 2016.
