When in Rome...

Or at least in SanFran, you have to see the landmarks.

And of course, no trip is complete without a picture of your faithful steed in front of said landmark. This time, it is Casper, the too friendly, too white, rental micro van.

San Fran is a nice place, but my favorite spots in the Bay Area run between US 101 and I280 from Menlo Park to San Jose.

You know priorities have changed when you leave this place in Santa Clara...

Drive right past this place...
Image

To laugh at this NFL Franchise's new home because they just acquired the racist coach that sucked in Philly...
Image

Then, passing through Mountain View, you have to work very hard to keep from running into these because they run 10 MPH under the speed limit with a 35 MPH max speed...

Finally, we stop at my wife's alma mater to touch base with a few folks...

And then head back to SanFran to see Twin Peaks and check in at the conference we are attending in the city.

But the best thing of all (was not going to the Apple mothership store to purchase t-shirts to wear into my local Apple store in Philly :twisted: ) was seeing my nieces this afternoon in Cupertino after I picked up my mother-in-law from the airport and took her down to stay with our family. That is what makes the trip to NorCal so special is being with family.

I'm embarrassed to say I don't know what that is..... :oops:

Formerly WWHY, WHRD, WPLH, WEMM_AM. Formerly on 1470 for ages from a site near WRVC.
The tower is in the 4 pole creek flood back-up area from the floodwall at 22nd street west.
In reading the various applications, after someone stole all their equipment, they were sold
a 5 KW "get on the air" transmitter that really didn't pan out. Didn't work, no parts, no hope of parts,
that sort of thing. I wonder what kind of a turd in a truck they bought? And who sold it to them?
