The San Francisco Neighborhoods


I walked into an ice cream shop in the Inner Sunset area of San Francisco and saw these cool paintings on the wall. They celebrate the different San Francisco Neighborhoods (Sorry for the weird angles as there were a bunch of people in the shop and the paintings were in some interesting places as far as angles in the shop):









This one I tried to get from many different angles. It was in a super weird spot in the shop and this is the best I could get:


So now if one asks, you know the different neighborhoods in San Francisco.

The Japanese Tea Garden at Golden Gate Park is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been and I really enjoyed the zen there.

Music Monday: Childhood Movie Songs

Music Monday: We are going to try some Movie Songs from my childhood. Normally, this would be easy because when I was a teenager there were great movie songs but I am challenging myself as I am limiting myself to before I was in eighth grade:


From The Muppet Movie:


From Thank God It's Friday:


From For Your Eyes Only:


From Flashdance:



From 9 to 5:


And the big one I still listen to, From Raiders of the Lost Ark:


Hope you enjoy and Have a wonderful Monday.

A Special Graduation


Cal State East Bay had their commencement ceremony for the Class of 2018 last week. It was special for me. I graduated the school when it was Cal State Hayward with my degree in Mass Communications. Last week, my daughter Allison graduated from Cal State East Bay in Communications. We both worked on the school newspaper-The Pioneer.  It was a pretty cool time:

Dad and Daughter
Allison shaking hands with the Dean
Someone is happy
The happy graduate
Party time
I am so pround of Allison. She is a lovely and an amazing woman who went to three colleges and graduated in four years. Not Bad. I love her with all my heart and the future is so bright for her. She is amazing.

Besides the DJ, games and being a cool place to hang out, the beer and food are good also:





The Cleophus Quealy Beer Company is great addition to the local brewery scene here in the Bay Area.
