We returned to the Bay Area and settled in Mountain View for our second professions - myself a commercial seed analyst at Ferry Morse Seed Co, he a technical photographer at United Technologies. I was, thirdly, for 7 years, a library assistant at Alza Pharmaceuticals in Palo Alto, while my husband did tax accounting.
