Kris, Me, Jon and Ellen at the Orange Vision Christmas party in 2004

Whilst I don’t want to over play my move to California (and I think it can be said that I have been doing so recently - this blog is testament to that), but as soon as my feet touch the ground at SFO it almost feels as if the next era of my life is set to begin.
