Visiting the Grandkids

I am in Murrieta, California, visiting my middle son and grandchildren. Murrieta is next to Temecula, about 45 minutes north of San Diego and south of Los Angeles. The Grandkids appropriated my iPad to play with the piano app, and I haven't had time to post.

My daughter in law tells me Murrieta was named for the famous Mexican bandit Joaquin Murrieta, whose head was cut off and preserved in a pickle jar. If you saw the last Zorro remake, this legend was portrayed in that film. Allegedly, the pickled head was on display in a local bar for many years. Poor Joaquin, my head has been pickled a few times and it feels like hell the morning after.
