    Maybe check in tonight from scenic Barstow, California.
    So jealous. I LOVE that restaurant.

    If you make your way to wine country try Bouchon Bistro (Yountville). It's a Thomas Keller restaurant that kind of takes the Chez Panisse mentality. Simple foods done very, very, well. Whatever else you order, do yourself a favor and order the fries . . . excuse me. Frites.

    Perfection.

    I'm feeling better about my booted kid this morning.

    I don't think there was anything more that I could do for him. It's really down to the parents to put aside their "wants" and do what their son "needs". Mainstreaming him isn't going to make his communication issues disappear nor help him control his impulsiveness.

    Still feel bad for the kid but I don't blame myself any more. I feel like the parents put his teachers and his son in a position to fail.

    You did nothing wrong, you can't ignore negative behavior. If they wanted him to learn something from you, you did the right thing, whether he learned anything or not, is not something you can control.

    Please, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    It probably wouldn't hurt to learn a couple of songs off book. House of the Rising Sun would probably be a good one.
    I do:
    Am, C, D, F - Am, C, E7
    Am, C, D, F - Am, E7, Am, E7.

    More or less two beats on the chords. A little more on the E7s, on the end, that turn you around to go back to the Am to start again.
    Just start playing it, 'cause you know what it sounds like. You probably already know the words?

    Please tell my baby brother
    Not to do as I have done
    For he'll spend his life, in sin and misery
    In the house of the rising sun.

    Just a thought.
