    hey beadiful,

    love the mix of stones you have here, and glad to see a Pick from another “west coast” person, is this your first Pick? I lived in Los Angeles many years ago, miss the mild weather and sunshine there!!!!! :)

    Thanks J Yee! This is my third pick. I live in San Francisco, but lived in San Diego for 7 years, and the weather there was PERFECT!

    ooohhh, you live in San Francisco, another city I’ve sometimes fantasized about living in, due to the cultural diversity you have there. Ah, glad to hear you loved the weather in San Diego, I can just imagine… I now live in Seattle, and the weather is either kinda cool and rainy or too hot, even our sunny days do have a tinge of coolness… not complaining cuz our rain and somewhat cool temps keep our environment really green :) , the city has an amazing amount of green areas all over!

    chicky LE,

    hope you do get to visit California, the regions do tend to vary, as in north from south, central from the other areas, one of my brothers lives in Santa Clara w/ his family up north… :)

    and do hope you get to visit Seattle some time beadiful!!!! is it a case of “grass looks greener” – what others have we tend to want more, not what we already have??? :)

    Been to Sacramento and Seattle but it was very dry and parched when I was there for the most part, but I loved it in Sacramento, but I’m not good in hot climates. Love this pick.

    Yes, it can be very hot in dry out here, but the City of San Francisco generally stays a bit chilly. Except for last weekend it was 90 degrees in the city on Sunday. Yesterday it was 50. I think the weather gods are bipolar.
