San Francisco Trade Catalogs from Yesteryear

I was at the San Francisco Main Library and they had this exhibit displaying old trade catalogs. I thought it was interesting:






The clothing store Roos-Akins 1967


It is amazing that these catalogs have survived for so long and it cool to look at the art work on them.

Oakland A's Root Beet Float Day

One of the cooler events the Oakland A's put on before a game is the Root Beer Float Day. For $10 you buy a mug and get free Root Beer Floats in the area known as the Treehouse. You are encouraged to tip the local celebrites when you get one (or many floats). All the money goes to the A's Community Fund which does good things in the East Bay:

The staff from local station KRON (Channel 4) doling out a float
KCBS (740am) Staff having some fun
Oakland A's radio voice Vince Cotroneo
The Oakland A's wives
Former A's catcher and now broadcaster Ray Fosse
Sharks mascot SJ Sharkie
The legendary voice of the San Jose Sharks- Dan Rusanowsky
A's President David Kaval
A's Centerfielder Ramon Laureano
The legend-Rickey Henderson Signing a ball and he was making floats also
Root Beer Float Day by the A's is a really cool thing and the best part of it is that the money goes back into the community.

Walking Around Sausalito

Sausalito is a small town, a short ferry ride away from San Francisco. It is a place where many people take a day trip over there and visit all the little shops and places there:

Saw this in one of the shops

From the Scott Hanson Gallery

Sausalito is cool little town but a little too touristy for me but I can really see the allure in taking a day trip on a nice summer day.

Stutterer Interrupted Book Reading

I went to a book reading at one of my favorite book stores- Books on B in the city I live in Hayward, Ca. The book is Stutterer Interrupted and it is the amazing story of the comedian Nina G.  She is an amazing person and the book is amazing. It was a great time:

Renee Rettig- the owner of Book on B introducing Nina G.

Stutterer Interrupted is a great book and a great read. If you get chance to read the book or hear her talk, Do it. She is amazing./
