Red Meat vs Rubber Chicken and more...

You can see it all in San Francisco
First off, thanks to all of you that offered condolences on my mothers passing both online and through the mail. I heard from some folks I never expected.

Tonight's NBC news tidbit that caught my ear... something about the Romney campaign, red meat, and rubber chicken for dinner. Seemed to me that reporter Chuck Todd went off the deep end tonight. You would never guess that the reporter is somewhat biased in his reporting... HA!

And finally, I'm thankful we live here! After traveling to Washington state for moms funeral services and back through San Francisco, I can honestly say I don't feel like a city slicker anymore. As I relax looking out our picture window at the beans and corn drying in the fields, I'm reminded of our San Fran tour that included the sights of Chinatown, the Haight Ashbury neighborhood credited as the birthplace of the hippie movement, and the alternative lifestyle neighborhood catering to all sorts of sexual persuasions.

Of course San Francisco has much to see. From the Golden Gate Bridge, to the financial and shopping districts downtown, Fisherman's Wharf, The Presidio, and of course the cable cars, it truly is a city of the most diverse citizenry I've ever been subjected to.

I guess I was more tolerant in my youth... much of what I saw in the city now made me wish I wasn't there at all. Sure is good to be home again!
