Enjoy a photo of an Obama shotglass!

I just don't have enough pictures of Bear on the blog, so he's making a cameo. He looks fairly presidential, right? So does Mount Tam in the back. I learned this week that Tamalpais is a word from the local Native Americans, the Ohlone, who gave it the name. Tamal means "west" or "coastal" and pais means "mountain," or "peak". It, along with Mt. Diablo, are the two eyes of the turtle; the rest of the turtle lies east of the mountain. Current political boundaries make the turtle's other features somewhat unclear to define.
At any rate, the picture of Bear with Mt. Tam is appropriate, since Bear happily spent most of this holiday with his loving mama. For him there could be no better way to spend any day.
