Happy Jack's Pie-N-Burger


In Bakersfield, I ate at this place called Happy Jack's Pie-N-Burger. The place opened 60 years ago and has been owned by the same family for the last 47 years.

It does have a certain Yoda vibe to it:

And the food is very yummy:

Happy Jack's is a cool visit if you are driving through the Bakersfield:

Views From a Road Trip


Just some views on my drive from the Bay Area to Las Vegas. First is a little stop in Bakersfield:

And then some of the views from CA-58 (Bakersfield to Barstow):

Had to stop at Love's for a pit stop:

Then some views from I-15 (Barstow to Las Vegas):

And in Baker, Ca (The last city before the Nevada State Line):

It was a long but nice drive. I always love the scenery.

Nuts and Who's at the San Jose Museum of Art


At the San Jose Museum of Art, they have an exhibition called Nut's and Who's. It is a collection of work that was done by artists who work through a small gallery in Folsom, California called the Candy Store from 1968 through 1985:

I think that these pieces are cool and love them. I am glad that I was able to learn about the Candy Store gallery.
