Pull Up a Chair: Finding Our MIddle Ground


Outside the San Francisco Main Public Library there is a great exhibit, called Middle Ground. It is about pulling up a chair and reconsidering ourselves and others in a way to pull us together as people:








And it helps to have something to drink with it:


And find some peace:

You can sit with the Japanese Peace Woman
It is such a powerful exhibit that you will want to reach out to anybody who sits next to you.

National Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi


I was in the North Beach area of San Francisco and visited the Naitonal Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi. The church was established in 1849 and the city of San Francisco and the State of California were both incorpated in 1850, so the church predates both the city and the state. The current church was built in 1919. The church is no longer a parish but in 1999, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops granted the church the title of National Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi:



















The National Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi is a beautiful place and one of those places in San Francisco that is hidden but worth going to.

Music Monday: Root Beer Number One's

For this Music Monday, I am going to attempt to spell the word R-O-O-T B-E-E-R using songs that were Number 1 on the Billboard Top 40:

 R- The Reflex- Duran Duran (1984):


O- Oh Pretty Woman - Roy Orbison (1964):


O- Out of Touch- Hall and Oates (1984)

T- Two Hearts-Phil Collins (1989):


B- Babe- Styx (1980):


E- Every Breath You Take - The Police (1983):



E- Every Time You Go Away - Paul Young (1985)



R- Rapture- Blondie (1981)



There you go, the word ROOT BEER spelled out with all Number 1 hits. Pretty cool, now I think I am going to have some Root Beer as a drink.

Ferry Plaza Farmers Market


It is weird I have been enjoying the simple things in life lately. I went down to the Farmers Market at the Ferry Plaza in San Francisco on a Saturday and it was amazing. It is huge and you can buy anything that you can think of there. It is also a great social time with friends:

















The Ferry Plaza Farrmers Market is held on Saturday morning and it is fun.
