I am staying in a motel in Studio City until noon on Monday. Rather than going up to San Francisco by plane, which meant getting back down to LAX and then going from the SF airport into town, I've decided to take a 6-hour "shuttle bus" from North Hollywood to downtown SF. From there, I'll take a taxi to the apartment on Russian Hill I've rented from my friend Jane.

Hilary - I've enjoyed your trip reports & all the photos. Your father looks so young!

We're all anxiously awaiting the results of the elections tomorrow; I'll be awake all night. I'm glad you didn't let that Bush supporter in your photo get away with her comment about Muslims. Welcome back to America! maura

hilary,

Good seeing you in LA. Would like to correct one of your comments, though. I am not involved in personal investments for high school students. I am involved in personal financial education for high school students. Here is a quote from my website:

"The majority of California high school students have never taken a class in personal financial education. This has lead over the past few years to teenagers being the fastest growing demographic filing for bankruptcy. This has lead to America’s savings rate being a negative for the first time in history and being one of the lowest in the world. Smart Money magazine has stated that unless we change our habits, 54% of today’s high school students will be dead broke at age 65 and another 41% will still have to be working to make ends meet. We cannot let this happen. "

Best,

Hi Hilary!

How nice it is to follow your adventures through this blog. I agree with the person who finds your dad young looking. I'm shocked to hear via your brother that CA teenagers are filing for bankruptcy. I guess I've been away from the US too long to understand why teenagers are in a position to file for bankruptcy. Does this mean that while they are in school, they are starting businesses? Sounds like a money making gimmick to me! Would love to have Gary fill me in.

You certainly are lucky to be in an apartment with a view in SF.

Keep those blogs coming.

Mary Lynne
