San Francisco Marathon 2009

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009 · 11 Comments

A week ago I ran my third marathon, and my first of 2009: The San Francisco Marathon. It was a most excellent experience with perfect weather, beautiful views, and quad-grinding hills. It also happened to fall on mine and Jen’s 6th wedding anniversary, so extra special thanks to Jen for supporting my marathon habit – […]

Thursday, March 20th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Although I had a pretty crazy day yesterday and, unfortunately, didn’t make it to the local anti-war demonstration here in Saratoga to mark 5 years in Iraq, I did take a look at some of the photos from yesterday’s protests in San Francisco: Looking at the photos brought back memories of living in San Francisco […]

San Francisco / Sacramento 2008

Friday, February 15th, 2008 · Comments Off on San Francisco / Sacramento 2008

Last week following a work trip to Atlanta for a conference Sunday through Tuesday, I hopped on a flight to my home away from home: San Francisco. I love that city and every time I go, it’s like I never left. I was there Tuesday and Wednesday nights, cruised to Sacramento Wednesday and Thursday nights, […]

CA Trip: Dad’s Birthday & Family Reunion

Thursday, November 8th, 2007 · 3 Comments

I’ve come to an important realization: I’m a morning blogger. The earlier I wake up, the more likely I am to blog. If I don’t wake up early enough, I always have good intentions to blog at the end of the day after work, but by then, my eyes are usually pretty sore after being […]

Monday, September 24th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I enjoy watching the real estate market of my old city, San Francisco. I last wrote about how you pretty much need a million dollars to buy a house in San Francisco. Today the Chronicle has a story on an unfinished mansion in Gold Coast (near the beautiful Presidio, which overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge, […]

We Did Not Have $1 Million

Friday, June 15th, 2007 · Comments Off on We Did Not Have $1 Million

The ever-poignant and hilarious Mark Morford has a column today that really hits home for this San Francisco ex-pat. Morford writes about the common plight of pretty much everyone who loves and lives in San Francisco: The inability to buy one’s own real estate. This was one of the many reasons that prompted our move […]

California Whales

Friday, May 18th, 2007 · Comments Off on California Whales

Back in 2001 when I was between jobs, Stella and I made the most of it by frolicking on the beach at Crissy Field in San Francisco nearly every day after we took Jen to work. It was awesome and the best three months of unemployment ever. We lived in a beautiful city and I […]

SF Landslide

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007 · Comments Off on SF Landslide

Even in the wake of a natural disaster like yesterday’s landslide in San Francisco, the city is still breathtakingly beautiful. I love this photo since you can see Yerba Buena Island (next-door neighbor to our old home on Treasure Island) in the background to the left of the Bay Bridge. And back in the day […]
