We’re in Napa right now, where everything is overpriced, overhyped and pretentious. We’ve come up with another medical couple for a meeting. The hotel, which advertised full internet service, has no internet service. I can’t find a critical piece of my Verizon gizmo that I use while traveling, so this post is being written on my Blackberry, a task that is a real pain. Had I known that the hotel didn’t have internet service, I would have made sure I had the full complement of Verizon equipment before I left.
If you’ve written a comment that hasn’t appeared yet, I’ll put it up as soon as I have internet access. Also, as soon as I get access, I’ll post about my brutalization at the hands of fate over the past few days. It started with a dreadful concert I got roped into Thursday night (Joe Cocker and the Steve Miller Band), followed by the Napa experience, which culminated (so far…unfortunately, there could be more to come) in a meal last night for four that cost $1,400.00 plus. You read right. $1,400+. Absolutely obscene. Not the amount of food, but the price. I’ll describe the meal and include pictures as soon as I can.
