It’s good to be back in a state where your tw0 trillion dollar economy now appears to have regained its place as the 8th largest in the world, and where your recent Academy awards ceremony was evidently seen live in about 200 countries. It’s of interest for Canadians to know that there are more Californians than Canadians and that as of several years ago there were an estimated 700-800,000 Canadians living in this state. Having last Friday left about three feet of snow in Ottawa, it was a pleasant shock to feel the temperature in the 80-degree (F) range over the weekend.
