It's been awhile since I've updated the blog.... anyway, there is so much going on that I really didn't have time to put anything down.

Since I've been here just over a month, we've settled into our temporary housing. We love it, nice view of the golf course and the night sky. But it's sad that we have to move again to a more permanent location.

We wanted to settle at the same location but there wasn't any that we liked and rent was on the high side. So we settled for another place, it turns out to be cheaper and closer to my work and schools for the kids.

We finally got our driver's license, we tried convincing the DMV people that we need not take the written and road test, but they say that only people from Germany and NAFTA get this special treatment.... ok... it's a load of crap. I could've used my Arkansas drivers license that I got more than 20years back... but I lost it and had to go through all the paperwork to get a transfer done.

So, my wife & I took the test and passed. My kids both have IDs now, so moving around would be easier.

Boring first Christmas, but will have lunch today at my boss place. Not sure what to buy his kids, but decided on Amazon music download gift cards, suppose to work on all devices including ixxxxx Apple stuff.

We took a short break in San Francisco before getting into Arizona. Great time at Fisherman's Wharf, Sausilito, we went to UC-Berkeley just to give the kids a feel of college environment...

Oh, we went to Paris for a short break, I had a conference there so got my wife & kids over after the conference. Beautiful city, almost got caught in the snow storm. Well I was caught in it, but thank God my family missed it by a day.

Got my kids into watching American football, my son plays basketball, so he loves watching both college & NBA games. Arkanasas Razorbacks football team will be in the Sugar Bowl... so will be cheering them on... "Woo Pig Sooie"

ok... until next time... have a Blessed Christmas & a Happy New Year! Stay Safe! :)
