Leaving (left) Los Angeles

After nearly 30 years, we sold our house in Los Angeles and moved to North San Diego County.  It was a really big job to pack up, stage our L.A. house for sale and move.  We we're fortunate to get a buyer after less than a month on the market.  Wishing many happy future memories to the buyers.

We now are in the process of getting acclaimated to life on the ranch (yea, we bought an avocado ranch), the serenity of living away from the city but close enough to the city to enjoy it's culture and entertainment.  Ziggy loves it in that he can roam without a leash but stay out of the coyotes way.

Here are a few pictures of the house and the views.  Breath taking!

Our New Home

I am still unpacking boxes while continuing to compete on the BBQ circuit.  Recently I competed in Kansas City at the American Royal.  This was a two day competition with an invitational and 150 plus teams from all over the U.S. competing day 1 and then day 2 over 540 teams competing in the open registration.  I cooked both competitions but wasn't proud of my results but am happy to say it was a great experience.

I am looking forward to my next comp in less than two weeks at the Santa Anita Race Track.  This "Lady of Q" is itching for another big win.

Sylvie, good luck with your new venture. I've been following your food blog for a while though gave up on ours, Peanut Butter Etouffee.
Since Santa Anita is relatively close I hope I can make it to see you compete. You got me started in BBQ and now I enjoy it a lot--just not pro like you.
