The name Filoli comes from a shortening of Mr. Bourn's motto: "Fight for a just cause; Love your fellow man; Live a good life." Unfortunately, the mention of Love made me want to call Hope "Faith" for the rest of the afternoon due to thinking of Faith, Hope and Love. Oh well. I suppose there are worse things to want to call someone!

After touring the 1%'s home in Hillborough, we headed back to the house where we hung out on the balcony. We had some drinks, freshly picked tomatoes, homemade paneer, sauteed peppers and polenta slices with tomato sauce. It was delicious. Reluctantly, we decided it was time to head home in order to get ready for the upcoming workweek. I can't wait until we have Hope and Jeff down here for dinner in Mountain View!
