Sam’s Club, Calistoga

It’s 114 degrees in the shade and I slept from midnight til 10am. Two recipes for delight. Now Sarah and I are finishing our trip with eggs and coffee at Sam’s where they split the NY Times into individual sections; a kind of news buffet.

Today the Times shares the astonishing news that women’s employment in the US is down from its peak in 2000. This is the only developed country where women’s employment has dropped. By coincidence it’s also the only developed country where paid maternity leave is not a right.
