Iâ€™m very very relieved to hear that everyone is all right.
I didnâ€™t realize the Southern California fire was where it was until yesterdayâ€¦the headlines didnâ€™t mention the fire extended into San Diego city, so I thought this was all out in the boonies. Then I saw this picture and read that parts of Tierrasanta have been evacuated. Tierrasanta is not I the boonies. This has threatened large parts of the city. I guess I thought modern cities are not supposed to burn down in times of peace. I was home-sick yesterday. And Momâ€™s cell phone number didnâ€™t work. But now everything is OK.
I still have a bad sore throat. I went to a different toastmasterâ€™s meeting last night and Iâ€™m making some friends. Tonight Iâ€™m going to the American Chamber of Commerce Mixer. Iâ€™ve been drinking 2 beers a day so that I can build some tolerance for social drinking. It seems everyone here drinks a lot.
