The office has moved

A couple of astute readers have noticed the small change in my profile. In answer to your questions, yes ... I've moved.

I'm now about 75 miles north of Los Angeles. Depending on where you are, you can find me by driving to the end of the world and turning either right or left.

Seriously though ... LA has gone nuts. LA's business climate is insane. It's little wonder why so many businesses are leaving the city. They are very hostile to businesses. The cost of operating in the city is way too high. City taxes are way too high.

A few months ago, the public utility raised their power rates. Tier 1 rate - turn on one light blub in your house and you'll be OK. Tier 2 rate - about the power usage of a pensioner in a studio apartment - however much you made this week; send it in. Tier 3 rate - what most would consider normal southern california power usage - however much you made this month; send it in. So, for a home based business owner with a few pieces of electronic equipment running - I was tier 3'd right out of the city.
