  1. Kudos to you all for making us laugh at ourselves and giving us two hours of irreverant, crazy fun! First time enjoying your comedic wit and it won’t be the last!
    My team flies just about every week so I especially enjoyed the “travel soliloquy”. Any way to get a copy of that? Is it in one of your publications, DVDs, etc?
    Wishing you all a safe, healthy and relaxing Merry Christmas (irreverant I know) and Happy New Year!

  2. Well. I shouldn’t have watched the trailer. Do you know how much airline tickets cost at this time of year from California? Cest la Vie…….sigh……..sniff,sniff…Please just click your heels together as many times as it takes and say “there is no place like home in Sonoma and doing the UCSA at the Sebastiani….Merry Christmas!
