Earlier this month we attended the taping of the Prairie Home Companion radio program held at the Greek Theatre in Griffith Park. It was very entertaining. Garrison Keillor and his cast are very talented and can be very funny.

The next week we took a road trip for our P-day. We drove through Ventura County (and bought a case of fresh strawberries), through Santa Barbara, and then to Solvang, a small town with a Danish flavor that caters to tourists. We walked around the town, had lunch in the a cafe, and did a bit of shopping. It felt good to be in a small town, where the pace is slower and parking is plentiful and free. We also visited an ostrich ranch in the nearby town of Goleta. We took the back roads, through the mountains, on the return trip to Santa Barbara. It was a beautiful and uncrowded drive. Then we stopped at the ocean-front town of Carpenteria for a walk on the beach.

Our big event for the month was our move, finally, from our cozy studio apartment on the second floor to our one bedroom apartment on the third floor. The kitchen seems larger because we don't have the table there. We have a large desk for our computer and a credenza for our files and a larger and nicer dining room table. We also have about three times the usable closet space. And a room just for the bed. What a novelty! We started moving on Thursday morning before our afternoon shift at the library and finished Friday, our P-day.

Keep doing your family history. As seen on a bumper sticker : "Genealogy; it's how we raise our spirits"
