Jess and Lili’s Legendary Wedding on The Lost Coast(Raible Designs ~ We Build Web Apps)

If you’re a long-time reader of this blog, you’ll know I’ve been to some great weddings in the last couple years. This past weekend, I had the pleasure of experiencing yet another fantastic celebration with two old and close friends, Clint and Jess. You might remember Clint from his wedding in Costa Rica or when we almost slept in a snow cave. I’m happy to report we didn’t get in any trouble and everyone survived the weekend without a scratch.

My trip to Jess’s wedding (on the Lost Coast of Northern California) started with a flight to Portland, Oregon. After arriving, I drove to Clint and Autumn’s house in Eugene where we enjoyed some sweet Oregon micros and reminisced about Costa Rica. The next morning, we headed for the wedding; an 8-hour drive.

Whitman Closes Gap with Brown

A new Public Policy Polling survey in California shows Jerry Brown (D) leading Meg Whitman (R) by six points, 46% to 40%. In May, Brown led by 12 points.”Casting a shadow over Whitman’s campaign is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s
continuing status as the least popular Governor in the country. 71% of
voters in the state disapprove of the job he’s doing and only 19% give
him good marks. Generally when you have an outgoing Governor that
strongly disliked you’re not going to be inclined to replace him with
another person in the same party.”Bottom line: “The trend is good for Whitman but with atrocious favorability numbers in
a strongly Democratic state she still has an uphill battle to win this
election.”
