Henderson went on
to explain that tar and oil have been a commodity for thousands of years
and are today, in essence, the international gold standard. The platforms
off of the California coast are mainly named after women. "In the tradition
of men naming sea-going ships after women," Henderson points out. In our
own backyard, the platforms off of El Fornio county are well known to
be named after the legendary Abraham Librado's wife, Maria, and their
two daughters, physician Pearl and her younger sister, the Olympian-turned-designer,
Janet "I really enjoyed myself down at UCSB," Pere notes. "I had
a great time at the opening and, although they didn't have the rosé
wine I had wanted, everything went really well . . . Did you know that
rosé is really a mixture of chablis and bergundy?" he smiled. Mr.
Henderson's plans for the future seem to be the same as his usual schedule.
He will keep his business interests so that his afternoons are wide open
for painting and tennis.
