Take warm clothes..we are back in a cold spell and rain in Sacramento so that means S.F. is too. The paper says tomorrow will be 61/54 with rain.

Hey PA have a great time. Go to fishermans wharf. There is a nice little pub there overlooking the ocean, forgot the name, but they have the best Ramus Fizz in teh world. Have one for me. Hurry back, we will miss you.

Hi everyone! I'm back and slowly wading my way through all of the posts. It looks like I have days of reading to do! I missed you all and am glad to be back!

My trip, work part aside, was great. Marge, you're right it was cold and rainy the whole time, but it didn't get in the way of what we wanted to see and do. We ate lots of good food, saw Food Network filming a segment (some Al Roker special, who's not my favorite, but still neat to see) and saw lots of beautiful sites.

The best part for me, by far, was the tour of the Scharffenberger chocolate factory. It was THE BEST food tour I've ever taken. It begins with a good half hour lecture on chocolate making and their technique and includes a tasting of all of their different chocolates. It's set up just like a wine tasting--very cool! Then they give a tour of the chocolate making facilities. It's very thorough and up-close, and the best part is it's free! I took a bunch of pictures that I'll post once we get them developed. We also ate in their restaurant and I think it was one of my best meals out there. DH isn't real picky about what chocolate he eats but after that experience even he admits that there's a huge difference in something like Scharffenberger and Hershey. I think I have another convert!
