Hey Rich - Nice to hear from you and glad you had some fun while sharing our gorgeous weather. Not sure what part of SoCal you visited but maybe next time you could drop me a line in advance. I'm in OC . . .
How are you doing? I thought I would drop you a line saying "hello"! I was over in southern Cal last week on business and playing a little golf with buddies. I hope you're doing well!
I bet a person could sit in the room, have a glass of wine, play a little jazz and just sit back take in your selected furnishings and art work. I do like simple but interesting artsy objects. I always had an appreciation for art especially abstract and/or pop art...it wakes up your imagination.
I do remember where I was at on 9/11. I happen to be on the phone with Chase Bank in New York at the time of the attacks discussing loan purchases. I had a tv in my office and it was tuned into NSNBC when the program was interrupted bringing us the coverage of the attacks. I then was going back and forth, CNN & MSNBC for the remaining day. Terrible!
Buddha Bar is a high end, well known bar & restaurant in Paris. The music played in the bar is sort of avant gard, eclectic. I do enjoy listening to various genres-ethnic variations of World Music such as the Breton Alan Stivell who did an album in the '70's called "Renaissance of the Celtic Harp" which I first heard while living in England. I also like listening to "Afro-Cuban" music. Actually I like all genres, some more interesting than others.
I appreciate you responding back to my message. I was just in southern Cal on business and playing a little golf. I grew up in San (Pacific Beach/La Jolla) Diego last week.
Thanks again...stay in touch!
