to Saturday 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9
questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other
times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random

years, later got his citizenship, married, has twins who are going to
college now. And my Brasilian daughter, Sonia, who ultimately married
a man she met in Davis (I was her matron of honor). Her husband is a
vintner and they live in Napa with their two grown kids.

A year or so ago, our Comcast decided we could no longer get
the San Francisco PBS station, which MANY of us protested, alas to no avail.
Sacramento has a PBS station, but our favorite programs were local to San
Francisco and we can't get those any more. Our protests were not
No, but it's terribly dirty, and all the dust bits
