    I went to iPhone Park (formerly AT&T Park, formerly SBC park, formerly,
    Pac Bell Park) on Sunday because someone gave us four tickets for a
    Giants game. It was the first baseball game I've been to since the
    stadium opened (though I'd been there for football). Beautiful park, but
    the prices for food and drinks make movie theaters and airports look
    like the Costco snack bar. $8.75 for a plastic cup of beer. $5 for a
    small bag of peanuts. $5.50 for one of those Minute Maid paper cups of
    frozen lemonade. Garlic fries were a bargain at $6.75.

    The game appeared hopeless when the Pirates took an early 5-0 lead, but
    the Giants got 10 runs in the fourth inning, and won 11-6. Verizon
    coverage was good, though they tried to confiscate my Motorola phone at
    the entrance.

    There is free WiFi throughout the park, so Larry could use his Nokia
    tablet if he comes out here, but there are no Waffle Houses in California.

    Y'all boys stop by. These are my neighbors across the Ashley River in the
    Old South. They've been there since the 1600's. Nice place ta visit but
    kinda showy for me. The Yankee tourists love it.

    What's fresh shrimp sell for in Californicate? Think we could sell some at
    $2.50/pound like here? The crabbers pulled up their pots early this
    morning out front of my place. Nice catch since yesterday, nearly a whole
    bushel in two traps! Hmmmmmm...great eatin, Blue Crabs. Some Saturdays we
    buy 'em right off the boat. My next door neighbor has the finest cookin'
    equipment. Bring your own crab utensils.

    The storm passed us by, this time, again. It's a blue sky over Magnolia
    dis mawnin'. By California standards our pace is nearly imperceptable.
    The slower the better. There's plenty of time, when you live in paradise.

    Just to make you feel at home, I live about 300 yards from the fault line
    perpendicular to the river that leveled Charleston in 1886!

    It was a 7.3, impressive even by California standards! It's only rumbled,
    occasionally, since.

    Lots of those, but the name is a misnomer as they serve all sorts of
    Korean food, including Korean beef and dolsot bibimbab (my personal
    favorite). I never met anyone that didn't like Korean food.

    They've played football at PacBell/AT&T/iPhone park? I had assumed you were
    in error; as far as I knew, it was a baseball-only stadium. But of course
    Google proved me wrong; the college "Emerald Bowl" (football) is played
    there. The food is outrageous, but there's higher-quality fare available
    than was the case at the 'stick.
