  1. What's your problem with Julian? Unless it changed in last 7 years I would describe similar to comments about Lake Geneva with apples not cheese. Sure it had/has a bit of an over the top tourist trap undercurrent and should avoid any put on "town events" but is a nice quick day trip into "real mountains" close to SD to visit snow, see some Fall colors or stop over to seeing Borrego Springs desert flowers. We made annual trips to pick-your-own apples until orchids had to stop the practice due to liability insurance rates.

  2. There's a fine line between quaint mountain town and tourist trap. Julian crosses it -- I think it's the mediocre apple pie. You can get some really good cheese in Wisconsin.

  3. I hate glass stopcocks.

    PS: That thread just picked up again, looks like you only wounded it.

  4. I use "activation energy" and "overlap" quite a bit. I gave my kid the "cavitation" talk when heating water for pasta, but I think the effort was lost.
