Hi Everyone,

Some of you know that I have been working part-time for my dad for the last few months helping him out with a few big deals that he has. The client that we are working for came into the office yesterday and gave me a new digital camera and picture printer. It will really cool so I should be taking a lot more pictures in the future.

Rebecca is in the All-City Childrens Choir. Her conductor had his doctoral recital on Wednesday night and had the Childrens Choir perform two selections. They were great. He also had his university choir perform a very long song. It was Bach's Easter Oratorio. It consisted of an orchestra, a choir and four great soloists. I was helping supervise the Childrens Choir during this as he had warned them that the piece was 12 movements long and that they were not to applaud until after the final movement. The choir was very well behaved considering they had to sit absolutely still and listen to all 12 movements which lasted 55 minutes and was not in English!! Kudos to Brandon for a great recital I'm sure the doctorate is in the bag!!

San Diego Zoo

We spent Saturday at the San Diego Zoo. 100 acres of plants and animals. We began our day with a 35 minute guided tour on a double decker bus which covered 75% of the zoo and gave us a great overview. We spent the rest of our day exploring the zoo ourselves. At the San Diego Zoo they are very much into endangered animals so along with the zoo regulars they have many animals that you don't see at other zoos (or anywhere really). I didn't know that they also have many endangered plants and trees. Our guide showed us one tree that was worth $25,000 and told us that they have several of these trees in the zoo. In fact she said that their plants are worth more money than their animals!! After we left the zoo we had supper and went shopping. That's it for today so I will leave you with some animal pictures.
