    I haven't spent a lot of time in California but I'd like to some day. I took a week long trip to San Francisco a few years ago which was wonderful, and have also been to San Diego and through LA when younger.

    My state it really nice too, and in the same general vicinity. Washington state really packs a punch for it's comparatively smaller size to California.

    Didn't California opt out of the clock-switching nonsense, or did it not get passed? That would be a great reason to move to California.

    We passed a bill that will allow us to get out of clock-switching if we want to (either standard time or DST all year long).
    A way a lone a last a loved a long the riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs.

    I'd go with DST year round for later sundown and more evening time to enjoy the outdoors.

    That's right. Crooks charge a fee for advising how to rip off other members of society and society as a whole.
