Earlier today I sent an email to a colleague re: my jury duty predicament - stating "well, no one ever died of boredom". As I walked out of the jury room for lunch -I am now at Butch & Nelie's(http://midtowngrid.com/butchnellies/butchnelliescoffee.shtml - there were a cadre of Sacramento's finest resuscitating a poor soul laid out on the floor...
I am wrong... apparently you can die of boredom!
Here are a few pictures from my walk from the courthouse to Butch & Nellie's for lunch... what a pretty day in a beautiful city... with perfect weather... just wish I was in my garden working... don’t have to be back until 1:30… so will hang out and walk around my beautiful city! The older white building is city hall, I would sully this blog with a picture of our courthouse... there is bad architecture and then there is the Sacramento County Courthouse...

Sure, here are a few pics:
The first pic is from that march I went to in Sansuntepeque against the Canadian mining company.
The second is from Perquin, which is up in the mountains. They have a really famous war museum that shows a lot of the weapons. They also have the destroyed bodies of the helicopters that blew up the Commander responsible for the Massacre at El Mozote (in which about 1000 people were killed...). Powerful place.

Not half as exciting here as in Kathmandu... Since coming back to California, I have been doing some work on the Ponderosa. Joe V. the contractor did some nice detailing in front before working on the bathroom in back... This morning got up and painted the trim and posts... looks pretty good if I might say so myself.
