True story of Indian culture shock. When my friend Geeta came over to the states she and her family moved to Iowa because that's here the work was. Less than a week after they settled into a house there was a hail storm. They were terrified and spent the night in the basement. They were from an area that got absorbed into Bangladesh although they were Hindus. How the hell did they know ice could fall from the sky?!? Geeta laughs about it...now...

If by "politicos" you mean Senators and Congressmen then no I don't move in those circles. However I have seen famous people all over the place. I've seen Obama in the flesh twice*. I saw Michelle** and their daughters go into a pizza place*** across the street from my favorite bookstore**** off Dupont Circle. (Total neighborhood lockdown, cops everywhere. I felt sorry for them. Imagine having to go through all that just to have a night out at a pizza joint with your daughters?)

It's that kind of place. When you go out and about here there are so many places where groups of people gather that you're bound to run into celebrities and notables in non-official settings. I saw Sting and his wife at a museum once. Impressive, huh? It happens.

Frank, 62 degrees, IN SAN FRANCISCO, can be positively bone-chilling!

Duane has a point Frank. The wind factors in and makes that really cold. And for people like me who walk almost every where we go a 10 to 15 mile an hour keeps out in the cold much longer than we'd like.

Since this is a food thread, I thought I'd show you the Dutch processed dark cocoa powder I make hot cocoa with:

http://www.amazon.com/Cacao-Barry-Extra ... _pr_sims_t

Two tablespoons of this stuff + 1-2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar (to taste) for every 6 oz milk.
A bit of cinnamon, and a tiny, tiny dash of cayenne.
You'll never tear open a packet of instant cocoa again.

As I type I am eating the most amazing thing in my limited food expirences.

It's called a sushiritto, and it's just what it sounds like;a sushi roll as big around as your fist. I'll post the web address at the end. Mine was a Myan Dragon.
