Dear Readers: It was very silent in the shrine last week. The reason? Horemheb and I had a major, life-changing decision to make and we had to talk and research to make the best possible choice. Horemheb was blessed to receive 2 job offers — one in Santa Barbara, CA and the other in Houston, TX.
Now, long time readers may thing that free market spirits such as my husband and myself might automatically pick Texas — like so many other Californians. And, the temptation was there. However, between 300 days of sunshine, moderate Mediterranean climate, and the fact the school district is getting Halloween off, we are going to suck up the higher taxes and blue state blues and stay in California. As a bonus — I get to stay teamed-up with the SLOBs. I have just over 1 year to start converting some of the bluest of the blue!
So, I want to sign off today wishing everyone a HAPPY HALLOWEEN. Here is a picture of the Young Prince and I at the Halloween parade. He went with a ninja, because the weapons were so cool. Me? I am a Slytherin Professor of Dark Arts, channeling Harry Potter. And, seriously, I will need some potent magic to counteract the liberal voodoo of Central Coastal California!
And, a little music to add to the ambiance:
