Niles Canyon Railway
    Sue Butler needs to hear from all those interested in the Niles Canyon Railway trip in Sunol on May 20, 2007.  Meet at 1:00 pm.  The train leaves promptly at 1:30 and returns by 3:00.  We can eat and drink on the caboose.  Bring cheese and crackers and munchies to share and drinks for yourselves.
    Afterwards we can go across the street for a picnic lunch at a private area.  Or, if you prefer, we could eat lunch first and meet at 11:30 at the private park across from the station.  Give me some feedback.
    Cost is $10.00 per person, plus we will split the $75.00 fee for caboose rental based on the # that attend.

Ladies Spring Fling
The Ladies Spring Fling is to Harbour House in Bodega Bay for 3 nights, May 31st - June 3rd.  Check it out at:

Pippin at Westmont
Randi and David are going to see "Pippin" at Westmont on Saturday, April 21st at 7:30pm.  Randi has already bought her tickets, along with her friend Lynn, but you can get yours by reading the info online at  It is closing night, so get your order in soon.  If you want to sit with another couple, send your money in together.  Also, we will meet for dinner at 5:30pm at Sonoma Chicken Coop in Campbell.  Westmont puts on top notch shows... this show is being done in the round and I am sure it will be creative.  Randi produced this show and was in it with Darren (who played Theo) a number of years ago.  It has beautiful music  (Stephen Schwartz who also did "Wicked") and a fun plot.  Let
Randi know if you are going so she will know to expect you.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
    After much discussion, it was decided to try something different for coffee this year. We will be picking a new place to visit each month. We will go to that location for the entire month, unless we decide to have an "away" coffee :-)  For the month of April, we will be back in Evergreen at Starbuck's next to Govea's restaurant. It is in the shopping center at Quimby & Tully Road across Quimby from Michael's. For anyone wanting to walk there, Ginny has offered her house as the meeting spot at 8:30.
    We will also have an "Easter Vacation Coffee" at the Starbuck's by Cosentino's on Thursday, April 12th (AKA Merrilee's birthday) at 9 AM.

The Rules of Chocolate

If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.
The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal.
It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.

A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?

If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

Money talks. Chocolate sings.

Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
Because no one wants to quit.

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

Chocolate is a health food. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived either from sugar beets or cane, both vegetables. And, of course, the milk/cream is dairy. So eat more chocolate to meet the dietary requirements for daily vegetable and dairy intake.
