Today was a beautiful day despite predictions of bad weather.I started the day at the Paciifica Democrats meeting. I saw two incredible speeches by two great public servants- State Senator Leland Yee and San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley. I then went with Elena to go shopping. We bought some food at Whole Foods Market. We got her two pairs of tennis shoes. We shopped for a low-calorie lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. We resumed shopping ad got things for the house and a great Christmas gift for my cousin,John R. Helms, Jr.
