Cool - then you should know about Baker-Botts. Walter Brown Botts (Ella Botts Rice's grandfather) was kin. That is the legal branch of the family that runs to Will Farish, late ambassador to the court of Saint James and is associated with the Baker's and Bush's. My side is the record-keeping branch that flows from Reverend Joseph Botts and keeps track of who is who among the millions in the extended family. Kiddo is Bush's cousin on his mother's (damn yankee) side.
So you are in Glendale? I'm actually a native born in Sacramento and lived in Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, Thousand Oaks, Ojai, and RPV. Now I live in Texas and work hard to head off our illegal immigration problem (it is simply a crime to allow any other Californians to move here

If my dad had stayed there he would have also becomed a millionaire too. But I love California where we have the drive-by shootings on the freeways. It is always random selection or road rage late at night.
We also have people being beated or shot if someone hits someone with their cars. We are a city of wheels and have thousands of drivers who prefer not to carpool. But I live in a small community of Glendale where the people are really friendly and it is safe to walk the streets at night.
I truly like my community. BUT.... crime can happen anywhere.... we just have to be smart and aware of our surrondings where ever we go in our world.
When I go into ports I don't carry anything important in my purse. I hide my money and credit cards, etc. under my shirt in a money type bag.
So if someone grabs my purse they can take it. I also don't wear any jewelry in ports. I see lots of gals wearing beautiful jewelry in third world countries.... ports... when all the ships arrive. These gals and their hubbies are super rich. It would be nice to be super rich but I am confortable.
So your son is coming to Hollywood. Tell him to visit Universal Studios because they always have something new to see. The weather is really nice right now. Plus, he can always go to the beach to cool down. Luci
