With great lawyers you have discussed lepers and crooks. You've been through all of F. Scott Fitzgerald's books. You're very well read. It's well known. But something is happening here and you don't know what it is. do you, Mister Jones?

I have to admit that I am totally in love with the food at Thai Vegan, which opened last week at Osuna near San Mateo.
I confess - I've had 4 meals in the past 5 days there!!!
As a vegetarian (not vegan), the menu is diverse, the "faux" meat is delicious, and there are plenty of vegetable-only dishes to choose from too.
I've sampled the Pad Thai, the spring rolls, the golden tofu appetizer, the Cashew "Chicken", the fresh Ginger stir fry, the tempura vegetables,… Continue

I have some pet peeves w/certain words/phrases that are over-done. I'd love to see these banned:
"At this point in time" - what about 'now'?
"Yummy" - should be banned by anyone over kindergarten age particularly by Food Reviewers!
"Bucks" or "Grand" - instead of Dollars as used by TV anchors

Imagine you hear the sound of pearls falling on a carved jade plate. The sound is round and smooth, delicate, falls gently into the curves of your ear canals, stringing a beaded melody. Or you hear thousands of hoof-beats trampling moist forest floor, thudding, the breath of men and horses straining, spears lifted. Or you hear a hawk lighting on a pine, claws clasping, soft bend of a branch, drops of morning dew falling to earth.
Or perhaps… Continue

Tonight will be our first performance at the Route 66 Casino! I'm excited about the new venue and look forward to the fun environment! I've taken the family to the Buffet at Route 66, but the new Thunder Road Steakhouse and Cantina sounds even more delicious! Adding the live entertainment, I hope it will be a great experience for all those who come out to see us tonight! Nos… Continue

It's a brisk morning and the sky is gray-white and overcast. I'm staying at the River Inn in Monte Rio, a small, sleepy town along the Russian River, enjoying a brief vacation between semesters in graduate school. The River Inn, nestled among dark-green trees, is a comfortable ochre European-style house, with a dining room heated by a potbelly iron stove and wide windows facing out onto the river, and small, unheated bedrooms on the… Continue

Our communities are going through an extensive long term planning process, one for the International District (Councilor Garduno area) and the East Central Gateway (Councilor Harris area).

We are approaching the one year anniversary of the Downtown Apartment Fire at the historic Huning Castle Apartments
which took place August 3rd, 2009.
I don't know of any 'good' that has come of this fire other than this year's story line from Br Ba

) which utilized actual scenes shot from the KOBtv… Continue

• Can you even name
the Republican candidate in CD1? I didn't think so. But a poll shows Democratic Congressman Heinrich losing to John Barela 51% to 45%.
Whatever that means, it can't be good for Martin Heinrich.

It is a bittersweet birthday, this 20 year anniversary celebration for the Americans with Disabilities Act. I’ve yet to learn how Burqueños are marking this day
, but perhaps folks will fill me in. To be sure, the celebration is less important than the achievements over the past 20 years. Legislation that provides accessibility to over 50 million Americans is a profound… Continue

The last couple of Sunday afternoons I've gone for a ride on two wheels, something that's fast becoming a habit. Here are a couple of quick observations from today.
A bicycle ride is unlike driving a car or walking in that you can cover a fair amount of ground without either missing details or tuning out because it takes a long time to get anywhere. Today's ride took me to the Ridgecrest area, and included a small amount of rain and a good breeze. I took a small amount of… Continue
