Pub Games

March 13, 2012










This Games Design company got their name when they figured out that they did their best work after work in a near-by pub.  The Melbourne company said they don’t have a combo video-drinking game for use in pubs.  Well, not yet at any rate.

Sign in San Francisco










Lunch stop in San Francisco

We noticed that the lunch truck food fad is going strong in San Francisco.  We also noticed that their sign reminded us of our favorite German Country and Western band.

What?  You didn’t know?

Which?  That there are good eats in SF or that there is Country and Western music in Germany?

Ain’t dat de truth

November 23, 2011

















This example of folk art was seen at Occupy San Francisco recently.  It was seen in front of the Treasury Building and that site was cleared out over the weekend.  So this piece of art is now part of protest history.

Seen on Shattuck in Berkeley CA










Now there is a flames paint job!










A car with a flames paint job always gets our attention.  Since we try to carry our Nikon Coolpix with us at all times, that means that we can get pix of all the flame paint jobs we see.  Should we do a photo book on that theme?
