I am now 36 years old.

I have never visited inside the capitol building before, the museum sections as well as the different floors where state business gets conducted.

Here is an old map of "Alta California" -- how about that? The Spanish travelers believed that it was an island at one time.

When I saw this portrait, I had to add something to make it better:
