Thanks, Mike!  Definitely both good suggestions.  I think I'll stay away
from Ghirardelli , though, as I'm not much of a chocolate fan, and my wife
is, so I get more than enough of that, at home!

As a side note, the weather out here is just spectacular.  For one used to
summers in DC, this place is a literal breath of fresh air.
