When at Ten Thousand Waves, I was reading a book about Japanese-style spas. Most of the spas were in Japan, but there were a few in the US shown, including, of course, Ten Thousand Waves. Anyway, looking through the index at the contributing spas one in particular jumped out at me: one Watercourse Way in California. When callicrates interned in the Bay Area for the two summers, we almost got there a whole bunch of times.
On the kitty front, I firmly believe that Heidi is working on ventriloquism, particularly voice-throwing. Sean appears to be perfecting his telekinesis; glasses of water fall over even when he's in different rooms. Both kitties are street legal now; it appears that tags now accompany cat licenses in Albuquerque. Although the two are none-too-pleased with yet another tag on their collars, I'm glad of it. I always thought it should be called a tax since no physical license, paper or tag-wise, was given.
