Seville oranges remind me more of lemons than usual oranges in that they attack your taste buds. You'd have thought the folks would have learned to plant mandarin or naval or valencia oranges!?

Hi GarryRF. Thanks for the feedback. The lovely afternoon I spent at Crystal Cove State Park with my family really was one of those instances where you look around, feel grateful and content for what you have and say to yourself..."What more could you ask for".

I keep a Video Log in my mind of all those "perfect moments" when you say to yourself " Hey ! Life doesn't get any better than this" I often re run those moments to myself on a winters day - usually catching 40 winks on a Sunday afternoon. Priceless !

This may go down in retail history as the stingiest promotion ever offered by a corporate entity. Three (3)? Really? Absurd and yet another reason to color HoJo tacky, as well as orange (or maybe that's the same thing).
