Admittedly, I don't watch Modern Family as often as I'd like to, but this scene from a recent epsode is hilarious.  Phil turns on the juice, and goes for the kill.  I think my favorite part is when Sophia Vergaro's character, Gloria, snaps back with, "Ah...he's a Realtor®.  There is a difference ...

I wrote previously about a walk to Aquatic Park and the fun we had there with Tanner, the golden retriever. Mid-day today I took a break, and borrowed Tanner again for more adventures.Our free time was short, so we simply walked along Broadway, from Franklin to the top of the Lyon Street stairs a...

 Admittedly...I'm a little addicted to Blue Bottle coffee.  Thank goodness, you can find them all around the City.  And, when my staging business (back in the day) had a warehouse on the 300 block of Brannan Street, we often walked over to Brickhouse cafe for a quick take-out lunch.  It was good ...

Steiner Street in San Francisco is definitely one of the most photographed spots in the City.  You can't drive by without seeing a flock of tourists on the hill with their phones held out and aiming eastward.  And, while it's a cool spot to see in person, I can think of several, "prettier" (and l...

In San Francisco, you see dogs everywhere. Taking a dog to the park is an easy way to meet neighbors, to belong to a group. Store owners have water bowls out for pets; many have doggie treats behind the counter to hand out. This is a city that loves its dogs.But not everyone is a pet owner or wis...

Just for fun...Aerial footage shows just how massive the Fleishhacker Pool was.  This (color) film was shot in 1935.  Other cool footage showcases the old De Young Museum, as well as The Legion of Honor (modeled after the same in Paris),  I never got to see Fleishaker Pool, but it must have been ...

Long time San Franciscans will remember it fondly as "Deadly Doyle" Drive...no center barrier or any kind of separation to avert oncoming traffic with everyone speeding along.  That's just how that stuff was built then.  It was definitely 'heads up driving' in each direction, and drivers were fea...

Flocks of wild parrots in San Francisco? Yes, it's true. Originally spotted on Telegraph Hill in the early 2000s, they have since spread to other parts of the City, including Dolores Park and the Presidio. Monday evening, as we walked over Russian Hill to North Beach, we stopped to enjoy the anti...

Living in the heart of San Francisco often feels like living in a village -- well, except for the driving and parking part of it. But that's OK, there is the MUNI bus and trolley service, Uber and Lyft, and our own two feet. The village feel comes from our unique neighborhoods, often separated fr...
