Ouch!  That's the weekend of Winter Blast, where all the pyros on the west
coast get together and make the ground shake, the sky rumble and  stars fall
from the heavens.  I'm afraid I'll be busy.

Today was kind of weird at work, but I should get gas for you tomorrow. I'll
check on the helium prices while I'm at it.  Another question that came
up... do we want to buy our own tank? We'd have to keep renting them
otherwise.

Getting to the bottom of the hill is convenient. The view from the top of
the hill is stunning. Where would you choose to live?
