    Favorite City In the World!

    I'm not saying I've been everywhere, but I gotta say, when the weather's nice (I know, I know, rare event), there's very few places I'd rather be!

    I Live In San Francisco

     We moved here from New York in 1947.  Then a few years later my mother found a house in the Richmond District for $15,000.  I lived there until I got married and bought a house in the sunset for $17,000.  It's hard to believe, isn't it, that you could...

    What Bus Do You Take?

    I used to take the 22 everywhere, cause it crosses the Mission, cuts through the Castro, up to Pac Heights, down to Cow Hollow, through Campus and dumps you out at the bay. The 1 is OK, but very crowded during rush hour. Oh! The F-Line is cool, too. Much better than Cable...

    You live in a bubble

    and every thing is awesome until you live outside of that bubble. You realized you overpaid wines, beers and coffees and of course, rent... But then you come back to that bubble over and over again because YOU LEFT YOUR HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO.
