Wow!  We have been inundated with requests for eclipse glasses so I know many of us will be watching and enjoying this rare phenomena.  We are completely out of glasses.  Thanks for joining in!  I called my contact at the UC Davis Geology club (that would be our fabulous, amazing daughter!) and she said TODAY ONLY there are a few pairs left available to purchase at the UC Davis Geology building.  Here is a bit more info that she sent me:

For additional information you might find interesting. Go to:

and enlarge the map so you can see the path of the eclipse.  You will see the partial eclipse from all over northern California. Within the path, you can see the moon centered in the sun so that you get a ring of fire around the moon during maximum eclipse.

Good Luck  and good viewing.  Please send any great photos or experiences you have with the eclipse.


I am excited about the social networking workshop Jody, Larisa and I are running tomorrow morning!  The space is being generously donated by Sean Boyd’s office and we greatly appreciate it.  Speaking of tax time…did you hear about the guy in Austin, Texas that was so disheartened and upset with “Big Brother IRS” that he set fire to his house and flew his single engine piper into the seven story IRS building in Downtown Austin?  Too bad he didn’t know Mr. Loophole, our own Sean Boyd.  Save your friends and family from a similar fate by introducing them to Sean Boyd, the man who knows the hard questions and has creative, profitable and completely legal answers.  Thank you again Sean!
