Pinkey’s Pizza Lady

Here in Petaluma there’s a pizza shop that has a rabid following as you can see from the crowd gathering by its door before it is even open. We’ve never been inside but if the crowd and the sign is any indication of the quality of the place we’re definitely missing something.

Digital Detox

There always but ALWAYS is this damn digital addiction in our pocket or purse. It’s just got to be cut back. I’m speaking for myself of course but my guess is I’m onto a problem that you have too. I’ve deleted Twitter today and am trying to get my courage up to delete Instagram as well.

Feliz Navidad!
