3 Days in the Cali

I was in SoCal this week and just arrived back in Austin. I was out there doing some business development in the construction industry. We manufacture products that are used as ingredients in grouts, mortars, stucco, etc. On Tuesday I arrived and drove over to Rancho Cucamonga to meet with a company that makes concrete patch and floor coatings. I then headed back to my hotel in Irvine and headed to the hotel gym. The damn exercise bike was broken, so I hit the treadmill. Nothing is more boring than a treadmill and to boot, I forgot my iPod at home. On Wednesday I drove down to San Diego in the morning for a meeting with a company that makes stucco. After that, I headed North for a lunch meeting with our distributor in La Palma and then headed to a meeting in Cypress at a company that makes stucco and floor leveling products. We had a great dinner last night in Irvine at a fish restaurant where we had a very nice Cabernet Sauv. (One of my favorites - Heitz Cellars). Today I had a meeting in Santa Fe Springs where I gave a presentation to the company that supplies Home Depot with all of their grout and thin set products. I then headed back to LAX to catch my flight to Austin. I drove home, hung out with The Bug for a bit and am now watching American Idol. I will then watch The Office and My Name is Earl, both of which are taped. What a week. I just want it to be over.

Low clouds cover the mountains behind Rancho Cucamonga.

I sweated my ass off on the treadmill doing one of those preprogrammed routines.

The nuclear power plant along I-5 in San Clemente. Nothing generates more power than a giant set of tits!

Cucamonga and stucco are fun words.

I LOVE the treadmill, but not as much as actually riding bikes!

Welcome home from the bottom half of my glorious state!

Mortars and grouts. We probably specify your products (via the manufacturers that use them) every day. Maybe you should stop up here to my office and give a presentation. You know; up here in rainy, cold, icy, storming Michigan. Sounds better than Cucamonga, doesn't it? :^)
And we have a nuc-lear power plant too! Pretty enticing aye?

I stared, I squinted and I still couldn't see mountains...those there are what we Alaskans call "hills". I'm sure you've heard of 'em.

Giant, metal, radio-active, a woman's body parts. Yeah, we have controlled, but dangerous, power.

Sweet-I can see why everyone wants to live in SoCal. The weather is fantastic and the variety of terrain is incredible.

Oldman-you probably do spec some of these products. Let's see, Michigan or Sunny California. Hmm. That is a tough one. I will have to think on it. Does your NUKULAR plant have tits?

Michelle-I am going to have to come up there and check out this Alaska place. I have always said that boobs control the universe.
