James, I'm hearing a lot of good things in your area. One of the best things for me is that many people from Johnson Space Center are headed my way. I'm working with several Texan's now relocating with NASA here in Huntsville, AL. Anyway, congrats on the Governors Community Achievement Award!!!

The Bay Area is such a wonderful place to call home!  If you haven't seen the newest "Don't Mess with Texas" ad, check it out.  Another well-done ad to remind Texans to take care of the state we love by not littering.
