I am just back from a weekend in California's heartland, the central valley. It was actually pretty fun to be away from the San Francisco fog for a few days. We stayed on a ranch with goats, horses and the works! Goats are really amazingly smart. I have the feeling that if they weren't quite so into eating everything all the time, they would rank right up there with dolphins.
Yay for goats! They are smart and make good cheese.
