i visit to the homeland would be very nice!
SF has shown me that its weather is not 'bright and sunny california' - but 'foggy and cold with bits of sun'. so although i do like the city and the people immensely, it is not a place that i want to spend another year in. so i am looking at Berkley as a short-distance move or perhaps down the coast in Venice Beach - where the weather is 340days of sunshine and miles of beach. http://images.google.com/images?q=Venice+Beach
i just returned from a weekend there, driving up and down the coast and was absolutely floored!
