November 13, 2006
Quite chilly and overcast. Worked yesterday on several scenes for the Top Secret Project. Got some sweet dust storm effects.

Went on three bike rides with the dogs. Enjoyed the brisk air and quietude. Took a nap, went over the Bisbee Budget (we have all the money we’ll ever need as long as we die before Christmas).

Drove into Paradise Valley to meet Deena for lunch. She was flying out to Ontario, California for her company and we met at El Conquistador, but they were closed so we went down the street and landed at Tio Taco, a small neighborhood Mexican food joint that just opened. Had the green chile and a 7-Up. Girls had burritos ($18.75 cash). Fun talking to the Deen. She's a real road warrior. I asked her what her impressions of the country are now that she's been to almost every corner and she laughed and said, she always felt so "deprived" growing up in Arizona because people would kind of dismiss her when they found out she hadn't lived anywhere else. But now that she's travelled extensively she said she has a newfound appreciation for Arizona and the desert. As for living somewhere else, she said most of the midwest "has too many bugs and it's too cold," although she said she really liked the people in Minneapolis, but would only consider it if she could live there only three months of the year. Ha.

I need to thank Neil Schneider of Sonoran Communications, who came out with the PA on Saturday and shot video and stills of the entire event. If you need a good soundman at a fair rate check out Neil at:
