I promised bacon soda and I will deliver! So I wandered into BevMo the other night because I know they have an amazing selection of root beers and sarsaparillas, and they’re also about the only place in town that sell birch beer, which I adore. (I want to try spruce beer, but I’m told that’s an East Coast thing and… Read more »
This piece of wood is the edge of a bleacher seat from California Memorial Stadium, home of my beloved California Golden Bears. In the process of renovating and modernizing the facility, which was originally built in 1923 on top of a major earthquake fault, they tore out the wooden bleachers. I’ve not had a chance to get back to Memorial… Read more »
So, I’ve promised a friend I would start taking pictures of Sactown to show her. It gets me out of the office at lunch — most of these will be walking distance from work — and it lets me see a bit more of the city I live in. I’ll start the series with this shot, from last Friday, of… Read more »

But at the bottom of my offramp, it looked… Read more »
I found this in the grocery store last night. Me: I’m afraid to look at how many calories that has. Jill: (flipping package over): Servings per package: 12. Calories: 200. Calories from fat: 90. Me: Yeesh! That’s one-sixth of one cup per serving. So I guess if you really like Reese’s, this might be worth it. Just keep in mind,… Read more »
This is an abandoned car in the parking garage I park in.
I’m not feeling well lately, and I don’t have much to say today, so have a picture of some clouds taken at sunrise this morning. Maybe I’ll feel more like talking tomorrow, although my magic 8-ball suggests that’s unlikely.
There are some mornings when Ebony is being unbelievably cute.
