A brief greeting to blog readers from Pasadena


I’m in Pasadena.  Just toured the float making area.  This is my second year here for this magical celebration.  So I’m dashing off a quick hello and will add a picture if any if them are good enough.  Had a wonderful seafood dinner last night in Hollywood with friends and former students.  Live is good.  It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood and I consider myself very lucky.

This is to wish you all a wondrous , prosperous and Happy New Year.  Don’t miss the Rose Parade, if you can watch it on television.  It really is spectacular.
