I can see why the beautiful people live in California.
After 5 days of gathering data, I can conclude that there is a direct relationship between being fat and eating bread.
Texas people may know how to eat and prepare the food they are accustomed to (to perfection).... but there is another lifestyle out there, and their food is better. It tastes better, looks better and feels better.
Now, let's talk climate.
When you are outside in California, (the majority of the state), you hate to go inside. Simply put.... but the truth. The weather was so delicious at 6,000 feet (and that is not that high when you think of the rest of the West... that's lower than Santa Fe, lower than Taos, lower than most of Albuquerque and lower than most of Colorado and Utah, AND lower than where I lived in central New Mexico), that you wanted to spend every minute outside. The TV seemed like a vulgar substitute for happiness. Happiness was out there.... away from the noise. Windows needed to be open. It was almost atheist to keep them closed. Breezes were welcomed. Sun was welcomed. I didn't get bitten by any mosquitoes although I saw a total of two.
There were no flies.
That is all for now.
