Today is January 1st, 2010. It marks a new year, a new decade, and my husband's birthday. It also marks the first day of a series of blog posts that will document publicly various facts pertaining to master architect Lilian J. Rice. This will help scholars to find out never before published facts about Rice, her life, her work, and her influence,information that has been culled during four years of research and is included in my new book "Lilian J. Rice: Architect of Rancho Santa Fe, California" which will release spring 2010.
