Another great place to take kids in the Bay Area: Oakland Zoo.
The Park Street Spring Festival is today and tomorrow. I swung through there this morning on some errands, it looked like fun!
It may be a local Bay Area thing, but the strawberries have been just perfect for the last couple of weeks. Yum yum, go get yourself some.
A funny anecdote from this week. I attended a tech review meeting with maybe ten other guys from various nearby companies. A few minutes into the presentation, one of the guys asks the presenter, “where’d you go to school?” A quick back and forth, and they realize they were roomates in graduate school, I’m guessing at least ten years ago. Heh. Then, after the meeting, I’m yakking with another attendee and it turns out he and I had a brief correspondence a few years ago. I check my cell phone and bang, his number is still there. That’s the valley for you.
The grill we purchased last week for the big BBQ just dropped $50 in price. It’s a good one, high heat density, not overly expensive.
