Last MonthÕs Activities:  At the beginning of January, members enjoyed seeing a beautiful sunset while we walked along the beach at Del Mar and then sharing a wonderful meal together at  JakeÕs.   Later in the month, we visited Carlsbad and had a reasonably priced but superior meal  while listening to/singing along with a Bavarian accordian player.  We had a rousing time!
