Hello everyone, the two weeks since my previous update have continued to be
very busy at work, as the implementation of the changes being made goes
full-speed ahead and the prospect of my time in LA finishing at the end of March
begins to draw near.
Andrew has returned back to the UK so last Saturday I moved into a
one-bedroom apartment, although still in the same complex. I have a view of the
hills & mountains from my 4th-floor balcony which is great on a fine day - which
is quite often! And I can see the planes coming in to land at John Wayne Airport
- heaven :)
Last Thursday was a bad night as I'd just climbed into bed at 23:30 when the
fire alarm for the apartment block went off. After returning to bed it went off
again at 02:00. I was not happy!
On Friday I went to see "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King". An
awesome and visually stunning film, with the 3hours 20 minutes length of the
movie passing very quickly.
Yesterday I took Dave, who's been in LA for a week, on a whistle-stop tour of
downtown LA. Check out the photos plus also pics of my apartment by clicking
One final word of thanks goes to the New England Patriots, my favourite
American Football team who have just won their 2nd Superbowl in three seasons. I
would just like to say that I had a £5 bet on Deion Branch to score the first
touchdown and the Patriots to win by between 1-6 points. After Deion scored the
first touchdown the Pats had me on the edge of my seat until they made the
winning field goal with 4 seconds remaining. Thanks to that I won £175. Very
nice! (Just don't ask about the tenner I lost on Sheffield United yesterday!!)
Until the next update, take care and goodbye.
