Pac-12 empire, and a look back at where I was a year ago

4 05 2011

This morning I got up early to attend the news conference organized by the Pac-12 (formerly known as the Pac-10, so if you have anything that says Pac-10 on it, it might someday be a collector’s item). Here’s the story I wrote on today’s announcement.

So NCAA stuff in the a.m., baseball in the P.M. Got the Diamondbacks tonight vs. Colorado.

Last year on this day, my wife and I were celebrating being in Venice, Italy, walking under archways to stay out of the downpour, watching glass blowers do their thing and taking a boat ride to Baveno, a picturesque little town among the waterways leading to the Adriatic Sea. I look back with fondness on the fact that I have seen other parts of the world, and on Friday, it’s off to see more of the planet with a trip to London and Paris.

So does anyone have any recommendations as to what to eat/see in London and/or Paris? Taking suggestions.
