	Actually, PST means Pacific Standard Time...Summer is still a few months 
away.  In about a week we'll be going to PDT or Pacific Daylight Time.  

	This is our way of extending the (*wink*) beautiful NW Spring, Summer and 
Autumn.  It's wonderful to sit outside at the Summer Solstice and watch

of the Pacific Northwest (which, to a certain degree -- "pun" unintended, 
includes San Francisco, CA).

ps. Los Angeles, San Diego and parts of Southern Canada are all part of 
the timezone referenced as "Pacific".
