Another update on SF Park (see earlier posts number one and number two). You can now find a spot in the public garage
by texting the garage code. What you get back is the garage's address
and the number of spaces available. Sounds like a nice plan but a bit
complicated, if not dangerous. Please pull over when you try this!

We're in the process of painting our 1907 Victorian so my reticular activator

One of the projects we're working on at home is a remodel of my
husband's office. We got rid of the nasty carpet and had a decision to
make about what floor covering to use in its place. It just so
happened that while I was out on Zephyr tour Wednesday, I came across a
listing that had a product that looked suspiciously like linoleum, only
better. It was colorful, stylish, and looked great.
One of San Francisco's most beloved parks is undergoing plans for an

Embarcadero, I came upon this plaque embedded in the sidewalk on King
St. I knew that the area was landfill but I didn't know how far back it
