Hey folks this one was no joke. Lived through many quakes, this one was definitely the strongest since Loma Prieta in '89. We live less than 20 miles from the epicenter. It rolled very strong for a good 15-20 seconds. Actually had some difficulty making it down the hallway in a straight line. Was st...

LSU football is a big part of my life. Not so much going bat shite crazy if LSU wins or loses but because of the traditions and bonds that I have formed with my children, family and friend regarding LSU football that includes coming from Cali to Death Valley with them for at least one game every year....

Over the past 10-15 years the SF Bay Area easily has rivaled LA. There are many times when it seems like every road in the 9 Bay Area Counties are completely gridlocked. The 101 from San Jose to SF sucks 24/7. Then you have that parking lot that forms every day northbound 101 from Petaluma Blvd. Sou...

Sandwich me between Marilyn McCoo and Carly Simon and I'd die a happy man. I had severe hots for them when I was back in HS. Lusting aside, voice-wise they were also tied for second as my two favorite singers of my teenage years (early-mid 70's), only behind Miss Irma who will always be my favorite ...

In the USA I agree with Mark Twain
"In America, there’s New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco. Everything else is Cleveland."
Outside of USA for me it has been;

-Lyon, France (Can not imagine food is better anywhere else..Si...

My oldest daughter is getting married in Healdsburg (Sonoma County Wine Country) in 3 weeks on a Saturday. To have the wedding on a Friday is -$1500, Sunday -$1200, weekday -$3000 for the venue. So if people are strapped for cash to have a reception any day but Saturday saves big $$$. Caterers, flow...

1968 Sugar Bowl versus Wyoming. I was 11 and to show you where my head was at, the only thing I remember about the game was 1-the drive with my Uncle and Dad from the San Francisco Bay Area and 2-It was cold, wet and I was miserable. Wish I really could remember something more about that game....
