ON THIS DATE (23 YEARS AGO) October 25, 1991 - Bill Graham/Wolodia Grajonca (b. January 8, 1931) tragically and sadly died in a helicopter crash, when it hit a 200ft utility tower in Sonoma County, California Born in Berlin, a Holocaust survivor and orphaned, fate eventually took him to America, where he stayed in a foster home in The Bronx in New York City. After being taunted as an immigrant and being called a Nazi because of his German accent, he taught himself a perfect New York accent, graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School, changed his name, and was drafted into the United States Army in 1951, serving in the Korean War, where he was awarded both the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Graham moved from New York to San Francisco in the early 1960s to be closer to his sister, Rita. He was invited to attend a free concert in Golden Gate Park, where he made contact with the San Francisco Mime Troupe, a radical theater group. He gave up a promising business career to manage the troupe in 1965. After Mime Tr ...

Throwback Thursday's Summer Solstice from the past in Golden Gate Park, in San Francisco.
The Human Be-In was a happening in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, the afternoon and evening of January 14, 1967. It was a prelude to San Francisco's Summer of Love, which made the Haight-Ashbury district a symbol as the center of an American counterculture and introduced the word 'psychedelic' to suburbia. The Human Be-In focused the key ideas of the 1960s counterculture: personal empowerment, cultural and political decentralization, communal living, ecological awareness, higher consciousness (often achieved with the aid of psychedelic drugs), and liberal political consciousness. The hippie movement developed out of disaffected student communities around Stanford and Berkeley and in San Francisco's Beat Generation poets and jazz hipsters, who also combined a search for intuitive spontaneity with a rejection of 'middle-class morality.' Allen Ginsberg personified the transition between the Beat and hippie generations.The Human Be-In took its name from a chance remark by the artist Michael Bowen made at t ...

Tonight for the first time in about two years of daily efforts, my dog "Cool" snatched the dog biscuit balanced on his nose!!! Every time I tried this, I thought back to the following cartoon: "Easy. I'm gonna kill him..." Of course I tried it again, but he was unable to "repeat the feat". If you are a Larson fan, you must someday go to De Young Museum/Academy of Science in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and see the "Gary Larson Hall" exhibit, "A Far Side Looks at Science" to see some of his best work. I saw it when it opened in ~1986 and was surprised to see they were his ORIGINAL 8X10 pen amd ink drawings!! Too cool as you could see the endless amounts of white out he used and the iterations it took him to create some of our most favorite cartoons! Sadly these originals have been replaced by copies for the ongoing exhibit (my kids were bummed as I had told them excitedly of this). See the following link: for this quote: My favorite bit of ingenuity in the Academy is Gary Larson Hall. Gary Lar ...
Do you know when is California's birthday??? You say it's your birthday? It's California's birthday, too. On September 9, 1850, it became the 31st state in the Union. Interesting 19 facts about the Golden State: 1. The 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the Mexican-American War. The U.S. paid Mexico $15 million for war damages. In turn, Mexico ceded nearly half of its territory, including California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and parts of Colorado, Nevada, and Utah. 2. California was originally known as the Bear State. As California boomed—and the bear population was wiped out—it became the Golden State. 3. The grizzly bear on California's current state flag is a tribute to Monarch, the last wild California grizzly bear. In 1899, newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst paid a reporter named Allen Kelley to capture the animal. Monarch was sent to San Francisco, where he lived at Woodward's Garden and then Golden Gate Park. He was a star attraction until his death in 1911. The last reported sigh ...
Some of the very best memories in my life. I was stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco in the mid 70's while in the the Army and I had the fortunate opporunity of seeing The Dead play numerous times at Winterland and at Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park, as well as seeing The Jerry Garcia Band play often over at the Keystone Berkeley w/ Merl Saunders, Nicky Hopkins and other selected guests. Yeah, I'm a Deadhead and proud of it. I consider myself a lucky fellow And I'm so glad I was born when I was

Words of HOPE from a Street Youth: Over the past 10 months since our son, Sean SIDI went missing from San Francisco on May 21, 2013, we have been blessed with the support of MANY - Recently Lynn (Sean's mom) received an email from a street youth who was a former missing person, who we will call 'MM'. MM has lived in Golden Gate Park and is wise to the ways of the streets. She also has been on the look out for Sean (SIDI) - for some time now. MM is aware that Sean suffered a life threatening traumatic brain injury shortly before going missing, and may not be cognizant of who he is/we are. This week, I received an email from MM. She said: "I tried with a group to find Sean at GGP (Golden Gate Park). I was a missing youth for a few years and I know that a young person can be successful and healthy with his injuries. PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP HOPE." Thank you MM for your letter of HOPE, AND for searching for Sean!! Lynn, Claude & Danielle SIDI For more information about the search for brain injureed Sean Sidi, mis ...

I want to thank everyone for all your birthday wishes! It's so much fun to hear from old friends and newer ones too. I'm so blessed. My husband and son planned a most wonderful day for us, discovering a whole other side of San Francisco. We hiked an easy trail at Lands End, drove through Golden Gate Park, then on to Sausalito where we had a great Italian dinner before walking around that nice downtown area. Loved spending the day with them all. Just sorry our other son is out of town working and couldn't join us. Thank you all.
Hi guys this is your neighbour from 'The Barking Lot' up the street. I have noticed that you have 35 year anniversary T shirts up, however I feel it only right for Scott`s sake that I mention he opened 'Simple Pleasures' in 1967-68, cant remember exactly. The art work on the walls is original from that year. Here is a brief synopsis of his life since. All the best JB. .~*Scott Oglesby grew up in the hinterlands of the “Ark-La-Tex,” a respectable region in the good ol’ Southern USA. After obtaining a BA from the University of Arkansas, he spent the next twenty years tripping around Cleveland, LA and San Francisco working in Civil Rights, public schools and social services, before finally settling down in S.F. There he discovered espresso and became so excited that he opened his own coffee house, "Simple Pleasures Café," on a fog-banked avenue not far from Golden Gate Park. Defying the Starbucks juggernaut, the cafe continues today as a neighborhood institution. Indulging new muses, Scott then reinve ...
All these decades, I've moved through San Francisco pursuing my straight white literary activist girl pursuits but with joy in the people pursuing theirs and in the range and variety of life. Those mornings in Golden Gate Park, when I lived on that side of town, when the drummers were doing their thing on Hippie Hill, the roller disco royalty gyrating on skates, the old Chinese people doing their martial arts (with big pink fans, once, a whole flock of old ladies like flamingos), the bullfighters practicing sans bulls in the Panhandle, the swing dancers on the little bridge by the De Young, the saxaphonists and digeri doo guys playing with tunnel reverb, the runners running, the weddings and tourists and museum goers and cyclists and houseless campers and the archers at the far west where the *** men used to cruise before online shopping for sex: it felt like a world with room for everyone. I keep coming back to the sign an old woman held up at Occupy Wall Street: "We are fighting for a world where everyo ...

The San Francisco Marathon is a loop course. The race starts and finishes on the Embarcadero near the Ferry Building, traversing San Francisco. The Full Marathon runs through Fisherman’s Wharf, the Marina, across the roadbed of the Golden Gate Bridge, through the Presidio and into Golden Gate Park.
When I was a kid in San Francisco we lived on Fulton St. between 32nd & 33rd Avenues. I learned to ride my bike across the street at Golden Gate Park right there at the small lake. I started thinking about it and remembered that I used to take that bus on Fulton all the way downtown. It dead-ended right at Market and Jones turned around and headed back towards the avenues and the beach. Well to make a long story even longer I took a virtual walk in that area and saw that the old Hibernia Bank is still there after almost sixty years. Do you happen to know the history of it?
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR In January we joined the local Recreation Center for a month to exercise and lose weight, but it did not help much. In April we went to the Asparagus Festival in Stockton for the first time. We tried deep fried asparagus, asparagus ice cream, both good. In May we went to a Wyndham owners 4 day retreat in San Francisco and had a great time. We took a Bay Cruise, Wine and Food Festival at Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, Golden Gate Park, and beach. In June my Mom, Lillian, had her 88th birthday. At the end of June we went to the American Legion Department (CA state) Convention in Palm Springs. It was a nice convention on one of the hottest weekends of the year. We stayed at the Wyndham Indio resort and went to Joshua Trees NP and rode the Palm Springs Tram up the mountain. It was a beautiful revolving tram ride and 30 degrees cooler at the top of the mountain. June was the end of a one year term as Commander of the Yolo County American Legion Post. A nice experience but I am ...

I was able to go to the Lands End area of San Francisco this morning to try to see if there were signs of life in the Pacific Ocean after the latest reports of the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster. It all looked pretty normal and healthy to me, but I admit I did not put on a wet suit and a snorkel and fins and check out the undersea realm. But I did enjoy seeing the beauty of that area again, with the old Sutro Baths, the Cliff House Restaurant, the Dutch windmills in Golden Gate Park, etc. Beautiful it is.

love this! Mountain Lake brims with historical import Gary Kamiya September 14, 2013 Commuters know Mountain Lake only as a brief glimpse of water as they roar along Park Presidio Boulevard on the way to or from the Golden Gate Bridge. Tourists strolling through the Richmond District who venture north of Lake Street at Funston or 12th avenues are pleasantly surprised to come upon a pretty pond, surrounded by a charming little park and connected by walking trails to the rest of the Presidio. It may look humble, but this little body of water is one of the most extraordinary sites in San Francisco. For starters, Mountain Lake is a natural, 1,700-year-old freshwater lake in a densely residential part of the city. That's remarkable enough - the only other natural lakes in the city are Lake Merced, little-known Pine Lake west of Stern Grove and the semi-natural Chain of Lakes in Golden Gate Park. The underground water that feeds Mountain Lake is also the source of the city's lone remaining free-flowing stream, ...

Haven't been tending to this page very much of late. Apologies all the way around. Other than Rafal Blechacz's concert in San Francisco there haven't been as many events which we have put together as in the past but we did take part in the International Festival at I-House in Berkeley and in the Third of May Observance at Golden Gate Park. There will be more in the Fall. We are currently waiting patiently for the Vatican to announce the actual date of John Paul The Great's canonization to move forward with our celebration at St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco. Most of the countries which took part in the Beatification are geared for an even bigger celebration! There will not be a PAC -NorCal Polish Festival in the city this year since the fees for the venue were increased again. Instead we will participate in the ones already planned by Polonians in Roseville, San Jose and Martinez in September. We had the opportunity to bid Farewell to Mme. Joanna Kozinska-Frybes from the Polish Consulate in Los Ange ...

1. Albuquerque, N.M. The largest city in New Mexico has the highest percentage of parkland in a metro area, with 28 percent dedicated to parks and green space. Albuquerque also boasts 310 days of sunshine and seven nearby national parks, including El Malpais National Monument, which has a unique landscape created by volcanic forces over a million years. 2. San Francisco, Calif. With 220 parks and green spaces, as well as 11 national parks in the vicinity, San Francisco is an ideal urban destination for people who love the outdoors. No visit to the city is complete without seeing Golden Gate Park, which is the fifth most-visited U.S. park. There are also a variety of lesser-known parks throughout the metro area. 3. Washington, D.C. Although the National Mall and President's Park are two of the most well-known green spaces in the nation's capital, D.C. has many other places where you can get back to nature. Check out Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens, which is located near the Maryland border. The park co ...
1988. “Soviet American Peace Walk” with Jerry Garcia. “Goodnight Irene” Jerry Garcia & Zero. Jerry signals my piano solo about halfway through the song. I had been asked to procure musicians and produce the music for the "Soviet American Peace Walk," a concert held at the Band Shell in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. The event drew 25,000 people, probably mostly thanks to Jerry Garcia agreeing to come down…but it didn’t hurt that people like Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Mickey Hart, Merle Saunders, Norton Buffalo, John Cipollina, and the band, Zero, and many others also came down to play. It was towards the end of the cold war...but nobody knew that yet, and a large group of Soviet citizens had arranged a peace and goodwill walk across the USA. This was one of the concerts welcoming them to the West Coast. It was a beautiful day in the park and we had a strict mid-afternoon curfew placed on us by the city. I'd asked Zero to play two songs on their own before switching to the role of back-up ban ...

6/25 This day in music... 1966, Jackie Wilson was arrested for inciting a riot and refusing to obey a police order at a nightclub in Port Arthur, Texas. Wilson had a crowd of 400 whipped into a frenzy and refused to stop singing when requested to do so by police. He was later convicted of drunkenness and fined $30. 1967, During a north American tour The Jimi Hendrix Experience gave a free afternoon concert in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. They then played another two shows that evening at the Fillmore West. 1967, 200 million people saw The Beatles perform 'All You Need Is Love', live via satellite as part of the TV global link- up, 'Our World', *** Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Graham Nash, Keith Moon and Gary Leeds provided backing vocals. 1969, The Hollies recorded 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother'. The ballad was written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell (who was dying of cancer of the lymph nodes). The pair met in person only three times, but managed to collaborate on the song. The track whic ...
Coyotes in San Francisco If you have seen a coyote in San Francisco, the question might cross your mind: What are they eating? You think you better keep your dog on a leash? Your cat inside? In the past five years, coyotes have established colonies in many open space and parks in San Francisco. In the past two weeks, field scout and wildlife photographer David Cruz verified coyote pups born in Golden Gate Park. His research shows the new families are thriving, and how well fed and healthy the animals appear. The first coyote reported in San Francisco arrived nine years ago from the Marin Headlands. Security cameras on the Golden Gate Bridge filmed it trotting across the bridge one night. In 2007, two coyotes were shot in Golden Gate Park after they had attacked two dogs. In 2010, 10 coyotes lived in city parks, according to the best estimates. Last year, the number was raised to 13. Based on sightings from residents, dog walkers and photographers, and the survival of pups reported in the past month, the n ...
On August 7, 1967 George and Patti Harrison strolled through Golden Gate Park in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury section, where George gave a spontaneous serenade on a borrowed guitar He later voiced his disapproval of the hippy lifestyle, which he termed 'wasteful'. Aug. 22, The Beatles recorded 'Your Mother Should Know'. Aug. 24, 1967 The Beatles met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi while attending one of the guru's lectures at the Hilton Hotel in London The guru taught a technique known as Transcendental Meditation , which involved the silent of a mantra (a word, sound or short phrase). Meditating for 20 minutes twice a day was said to reduce stress and produce calmness and energy throughout the day.
San Francisco, the city where I was born and grew up. I can almost see the houses where I lived -- in the rectangle on the right by the ocean. The long strip in the middle is Golden Gate Park, the green line perpendicular on the right is Sunset Boulevard. I lived a block up from it in my teens, and down lower towards the Ocean Beach when I was a kid.
NO man has ever "moved" me as much or in the same way that Todd has. This house will officially go on the market on July 3rd. The packers will be here August 26th-28th...the trucks will be loaded on the 29th-30th and we will embark on our next journey together. Taking a HUGE leap of faith and moving on to California! In the 23 years I have know him, we have moved a total of 11 times. Our lives have come full circle. We are going back to where we met! Right now I have mixed emotions about California (none of them good) the housing market is IMPOSSIBLE (what are we doing?) But, as our lives go...(and God willing) we wont be there for too long. Here's to looking forward to a year of no snow, Pebble Beach, Santa Cruz, Monetrey, Cambria, 17 mile drives, Golden Gate Park, Grilling on Christmas Day, San Francisco, The Redwood Forest and need I say more...NAPA!

To kick off the "Summer of Love" here in San Francisco back 46 years ago in 1967, This poster for the Summer Solstice Celebration was circulated calling for a "Love In" in Golden Gate Park. I have no idea just who this Hippie pictured was or the artist that created this piece for that matter. No doubt music was played there but the bands that did, remain a casualty of time as it was never documented to my knowledge. There were several concerts in Golden Gate Park during that summer that are documented as who played, but that was later on during the Summer of that same year. This poster marks a brief spot in time that the flowers were plentiful, the beads we around everyone's neck and the San Francisco hippies were dancing in Golden Gate Park with long hair flowing. That slice of time has become as much of an enduring American archetype and legend as the gunfighters and cowboys who roamed the Wild West. We celebrate once again, the coming of Summer with this "Poster From The Past". HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE! M ...
Update Today: Compelling information received two days ago from Dr Geoffrey Manley, Chief of Neurosurgery at San Francisco General Hospital, indicates that Sean's brain injury puts Sean at "SIGNIFICANT RISK as a missing person". Dr. Manley states in part, "I am fearful that in his (Sean's) current state he is in danger of not making a meaningful recovery, or death if he is not found quickly." The family is organizing an informational vigil on Sunday at 2:00 pm at Stanyan & Haight Street in Golden Gate Park. They will speak and explain their requests of law enforcement. A large turnout will help to persuade the SFPD to take more action. Please consider attending. Please click on the link below to join us on Sunday for the Vigil to Find Sean Sidi:
Is racing tomorrow at the Call Me Crazy 5K in San Francisco! Wish me luck as I tear through Golden Gate Park!
So anyway, when I go to California in just FIVE WEEKS TIME, I'm taking a few books with me, as my agenda is to A) sleep a lot B) Rise late, and, having found a quintessentially American coffee shop, go in there for coffee and maybe a light breakfast (I don't tend to eat in the mornings) C) take a stroll thru Golden Gate Park, D) maybe walk to the harbour but if it's too far take a trolley and just walk around and dig that fresh sea air E) read a few books - especially books set in San Francisco. Already taking Carter Beats The Devil by Glen David Gold and The Man In The High Castle by Phillip K *** (the later being an alternate history where the Axis won the war, and the West Coast of the USA is ruled by Japan). As far as non fiction goes, I have a book on Alcatraz (my gf has bought us tix for a harbour cruise and guided tour of Alcatraz Island for my birthday present, we are going on the 30th of July which is my 41st birthday). I picked up a second hand book some time ago which I think I'll take, Jan ...

Rolling terrain, highest elevation gain was 300ft.   The race was held on Sunday, June 16th. I started my adventure on Friday the 14th. Flying out of Spokane, I thought it was only appropriate to wear my Spokane Windermere Marathon shirt. I was asked at the security checkpoint if I had ran in the marathon, I told him I had and that I was on my way to run the San Francisco Marathon. He then asked me if I was a professional marathoner? I just laughed and told him I wish. How fun would it be to train all day and travel around to run?   My flight to CA was smooth sai ...

Mom Dunn, Tina, Debbie and John will be arriving to the Bay Area from Upstate New York on a pretty sunny summer day. (They are my extended family, the ones who cared and nurture me when I first came to the US as an exchange student and later on brought me to the USA). We have plans to visit Yosemite, Carmel, Monterey and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz, Sonoma, Napa, Sausalito, Tiburon, and of course the whole San Francisco sights: Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park with the Japanese Garden and the Academy of Science, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, Twin Peaks, Grace Cathedral, China Town, Mission Dolores, Muir Woods, North Beach, Coit Tower, etc. etc. etc. What a gift this is for me because I love them and miss them so much and we are going to have A BLAST! I am so blessed:)
I have out-of-country visitors with me today and am taking them for a joy ride around the city. Here are my must-see top 5 attractions: 1. Golden Gate Bridge - love this bridge! 2. Presidio of San Francisco - great drive through Eucalyptus trees, Baker Beach, and scenic cliff views. Also stop by the neighboring Crissy Field and the Palace of Fine Arts. 3. Golden Gate Park- largest urban park in the country with the most diverse array of plants in any urban park. Also houses several events and beautiful buildings. 4. Coit Tower, North Beach - intimate neighborhoods, iconic tower and views, and great pizza! 5. Sutro Tower, Twin Peaks - ultimate 360 view of the Bay. This would be higher on the list but it tends to be cold and windy.
Headed down the most Crooked street in the World. Then Headed South 2 hr to famous Santa Cruz and Board Walk for Lunch, Taking Mountain Valley and Mountain Drive, Then Back North up Coast on Hwy 1, along the Pacifica Hwy Costal Drive till we get back to San Francisco and then across the Golden Gate Bridge. Then Headed to Muir National Park to see the Redwood Forest. Then going to San Quintin State Prison, I use to do all this when I was a teenager.
Golden Gate Park, located in San Francisco, California, is a large urban park consisting of 1,017 acres (412 ha) of public grounds. Configured as a rectangle, it is similar in shape but 20 percent larger than Central Park in New York, to which it is often compared. It is over three miles (5 km) long...

Today's notes to self: 1) North Beach has the BEST Italian restaurants in SFO. Just go to Columbus, walk and choose the best smell. 2) Amber gets hit on EVERYWHERE. By waiters, men in restaurants, on the streets, in the hotel, walking along. 3) It's a long way to walk from Golden Gate Park to the Castro district. What looks like only a few blocks on a not-to-scale map... 75 minutes later up and down hill! 4) San Francisco looks just like Wellington. Hilly and full of Victorian villas.
Beyond exhausted. I used I be able to travel, work a 16 hour day and party like a rock star. So can't hang like I used to but have done quite a bit. I walked all around San Francisco last night. Hit up the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf and had dinner at a fancy restaurant at Pier 39 then went for a swim and sat in the Hot Tub. Networked like a Hollywood socialite today and sat in multiple training sessions. Got a lot of positive feedback and interest from my interactions. Gonna take a nap and hit the town later. Overall it's been a nice trip. Totally realized how much I hate to fly and am not looking forward to the flight home but can't wait to snuggle with my Buddy puppies.
We did see the art shows at the deYoung Gallery in Golden Gate Park. There were amazing etchings by Rembrandt, the famous painting by Vermeer of The Girl With The Pearl Earring, and works by many other Dutch painters from the 1600's. Among the other exhibits was a fabulous show of Rudolph Nureyev Ballets, history, costumes, and videos of the master before his death at 54. We were not able to see everything on exhibit but we had a lovely lunch there and went up to the viewing tower for photos and the vista of San Francisco. After crossing the Golden Gate Bridge we went to visit our friend Jeanne and her son Sam who has a T-shirt printing business in Sausalito. Many people I still know in Santa Cruz were part of a spiritual community I was involved in 35 years ago so I'm reconnecting with a few friends on this trip. Our journey then took us up to Santa Rosa to stay with Deborah and then continue on up to Harbin Hot SPrings for a spa day. Harbin is otherworldly. It is a clothing optional retreat space, with ...

Chester Leo "Chet" Helms (August 2, 1942 – June 25, 2005), often called the father of San Francisco's 1967 "Summer of Love", was a music promoter and a cultural figure in San Francisco during its hippie period in the late Sixties.Helms was the founder and manager of Big Brother and the Holding Company and recruited Janis Joplin as its lead singer. He was a producer and organizer, helping to stage free concerts and other cultural events at Golden Gate Park, the backdrop of San Francisco's Summer of Love in 1967, as well as at other venues, including the Avalon Ballroom.He was the first producer of psychedelic light-show concerts at the Fillmore and the Avalon Ballroom and was instrumental in helping to develop bands that had the distinctive San Francisco Sound.[1] Helms died June 25, 2005 of complications from hepatitis C.[2] He was 62. Chester Leo Helms was born in Santa Maria, California, the eldest of three sons. His parents were Chester and Novella Helms. Helms' father, a manager at a local sugarbeet ...

If people like to remember a famous politician, then they can just name a street after him or her. For example, we have named Geary Street in San Francisco after John W. Geary, San Francisco's first mayor. We named Clement Street, maybe a century ago, to recognize Supervisor Clement for his effort to extending Golden Gate Park all the way to the edge of Pacific Ocean. Not only that we named streets after politicians, but we as well named King Street in recent years after Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. In addition, we also named Cesar Chavez Street after national labor leader Cesar Chavez in the recent decade. Do you get it? If you like to remember someone important from San Francisco's past, then just name him or her a street. That's all you need to do. There is really NO need to name an entire international airport simply under one person's name. However, a better solution can be that we establish a Hall Of Remembrance to include all the important and famous people that's from San Francisco, ...
Today is my Auntie Florence Yamauchi Allen's birthday~ one year and one day from my moms birthday.. She had an arranged marriage to a man in The Royal Navy who was her soul mate. Of course, he died in the war, and my aunt and cousin, Richard Yamauchi, was stuck a little southeast of Hiroshima when the bomb hit. She told me stories of the "warm wind" of the bomb, and how lucky she and my cousin was to live through this tragedy. She was considered a "spy" because she would say things like, "Oh, that Tojo must be nuts to try to take on The United States of America"~! And, I understand she was hauled in to the local police station due to her big mouth. Thank goodness, the chief of police happened to be a friend of my aunt, and told her to "shut-up"... Wonder if I get that from her? She was my nanny in Hawaii until she moved to San Francisco, and became the manager of the Japanese Tea Garden at the Golden Gate Park. We eventually moved to Denver where my mother would visit her annually, and they would ...

On this day in 1887, Thomas Stevens became the first person to circle the world by bicycle. Born to a grocer in the suburbs of London, Stevens convinced his father to let him sail to America, when at 17 he had already saved enough to cover his passage. Once in the States, he found work as a rancher and, later, in a Colorado mine, where he hatched a plan to make a name for himself by being the first man to ever cross the U.S. by bicycle. Seven others had already tried and failed. Stevens managed to stash away enough of his wages for the trip west to San Francisco where he promptly purchased a 41-pound 50-inch Columbia tall wheeler, called the "Ordinary." He had never before set foot on a bicycle and had no idea how to ride it, but after giving himself a crash course around Golden Gate Park, he soon set off toward Boston with a change of socks, a Smith and Wesson revolver, and a thin coat that he also used as a tent. In 1884, there were no interstate roads or rest stops, and when crossing the Sierra Nevada ...

San FranCISCO HISTORY: Cliff House: The Auto Club of San Francisco • In March 0f 1900, in an attempt to generate buzz around the Cliff House, James M. Wilkins – the building’s lessee at the time – hosted the first local meeting of people interested in starting a club in support of the automobile; there were only a dozen motorcars in The City at the time. His invitation drew twenty-five men, and by the close of the meeting, eleven of them agreed to be charter members of the Auto Club of San Francisco. With exception to Wilkins, none of them were car owners. The organization’s mission included campaigning for better roads, lifting horses-only restrictions in certain areas – including parts of Golden Gate Park – and an end to the requirement that a car’s fuel tank be emptied before being transported via ferry – “The San Francisco Cliff House” (edited and amended by JBD)
Heading to San Francisco today for the American Geophysical Union meeting. I'm hoping to find a little time to go to Golden Gate Park later this week and see what the plants are doing there this time of year!

We now, Liz and I are sitting at the San Francisco airport waiting for our departure on our Virgin American flight home. We have spent the last 5 days enjoying Beautiful weather in San Francisco. It was a treat for both of our birthdays along with a little business for Aili and Tao. We have enjoyed among other things freezing our butts off at the7:30 PM Cal UofO game at Berkley(a blow out in favor of you know who). Ha,ha. We walked the SF wharf, Sausalito, Union Square, Knob Hill, rode the Cable Cars, watched the gorgeous sunsets from the top of the Mark sipping Martinis, ate fabulous food, walked through Golden Gate park, took a Cruise through the San Francisco Harbor to Alcatraz Island and then on to Sausalito to wander throught the awesome art galleries and then to eat a very delicious platter of mussels and Dungeness crab and garlic butter. More later boarding.

Enjoyed a cup of Jasmine tea in the Japanese Tea Garden at Golden Gate Park west of San Francisco.
Had great trip to San Francisco and the East Bay. We rode the BART from SFO to Powell Street and then The cable car to Mason and Vallejo (The Nest). Had lattes at Café Trieste. Took a picture of the space shuttle flying over the Golden Gate Bridge. Had lunch at Molinari’s. Walked Columbus from Montgomery to the Wharf. Watched the ancients doing Tai-Chi in Washington Square Park. Ate from the trucks at Street Food on south 11th Street. Attended the Marzuoli-Swillinger wedding in Mill Valley.

Back in the 70's, we took in a stray German Shepherd, and she turned out to be pg. The puppies were cute and healthy, and soon we had to begin looking for homes. One day a car stopped, and my husband went out to see what was up. He came back after while, laughing, saying he'd seen it all now. It was a Cambodian insurance salesman, who'd heard at one of his stops that we had free puppies. Guess he was inquiring. He told John his little boy had never had a puppy, and since these were so nice, he took two. A week or two later, I read a newspaper article about dogs going missing in Golden Gate park in San Francisco. Cops started watching, and soon they were arresting Laotian and Cambodian immigrants for dognapping their dinner...they were cooking the dogs! We were horrified, wondering if our puppies were part of a feast for somebody. As the years went by, and my dogs misbehave, I now threaten them, if they don't straighten up, I'm giving them to the next Cambodian insurance salesman that comes by. T ...
Getting my San Francisco fix. First morning in the city after a 23-hour travel day door-to- door BCN to SFO: Slow, sunrise jog in Golden Gate Park; short stroll along the beach; a few minutes of dipping my feet into the icy Pacific Ocean, and a meandering walk back through the old neighborhood. Nice to be back... Mediterranean life is wonderful, but there are few things that beat the first glimpse of the Pacific as you pass the north windmill...
So on Tuesday I took a run through a grove of 2,000 year old Giant Sequoias, then headed down to the Yosemite Valley for lunch, where I sat by the Merced River and stared up at climbers on the 3,000 ft. cliff face of El Capitan on a quiet autumn day. The next day I took a hike though the Muir Woods, had a duck breast sandwich at the sonoma square, spent a little time in Napa, then headed back to San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge as the fog rolled in off the ocean. Today I woke up early, crossed the street, went for a run in Golden Gate Park, walked over to Haight St. to buy a few cigars (only Tobacco), packed up the bag, and now i'm heading to Lake Tahoe to hang with friends for the weekend. God I love living in California.

"Skywalker Park was up in San Francisco; it had been called Golden Gate, before..." -Virtual Light by William Gibson (1993)
The two days we spent in San Francisco yielded lots of memories: walking across the Golden Gate Bridge, lunch in Sausalito, 2 dinners in Chinatown, touring Alcatraz, watching a city react to a National League championship, lunch on Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Park, etc. I was fascinated by the way the Cable Cars are operated.
Giants-Tigers World Series - I'll take it! Congratulations to the San Francisco crew - my sister Dana, brother-in-law Kris, and especially my baseball-mad 8-year-old niece Talia! On Sept. 9 I took the three of them to what turned out to be a nationally televised 4-0 victory by the Giants over the LA Dodgers in what the media accurately described as a playoff atmosphere at AT&T Park. And Buster Posey hit a home run - good thing since Talia has a Buster Posey bobblehead in her room! Plus we had spent the morning on a baseball diamond in Golden Gate Park where Talia kept demanding I throw her higher and higher pop-ups. All poetic justice for me - especially since if you want to know the cost of sports tickets in San Francisco, think theater tickets in New York :) Enjoy the Series!

Hey guys San Francisco has been great so far! On monday we went biking to Sausalito. Tuesday I went to the Golden Gate Park with the Flower Conservatory (I'm sorry mom, I did feed the dinosaur) and the Acadamy of Sciences. Yes Robin de Pagter, designed by Renzo Piano!! Wednesday I was strowling China Town and Fishermans Wharf. And today I went biking to Muir Forrest. Although that did not go according to plan. The hills were a bit higher (3 miles long) and the sun a bit hotter. Overall a great week so far!
Jefferson Airplane was an American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1965. A pioneer of the psychedelic rock movement, Jefferson Airplane was the first band from the San Francisco scene to achieve mainstream commercial and critical success. On January 14, alongside Grateful Dead and Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane headlined the now-legendary "Human Be-In", the famous all-day 'happening' staged in Golden Gate Park, one of the key events leading up to the "Summer of Love".
The dawning of day 4in San Francisco... We are going to the Acadamy of Science tonight and Half Moon Bay tomorrow. I have strolled in Golden Gate Park and talked to buffalo while there, tried (but failed) to walk around inside AT&T Park...the Giants were in Cincinnati, so what would have been the harm? Many more adventures and pics to follow. I love this place and I love being with my Cali girl :)
Got back from San Francisco , Wow, great place , great sightseeing. Food? Whoa. Outstanding. Had every event going there. Blue Angels, Americas Cup , Not So Blue Grass at Golden Gate Park. The Giants, A's and 1,000,000 folks with 700 parking spots. We still had a great time. Went to Napa Valley for a couple of days and saw an Auto Zone and O'Rilley's. What's up with that?.
In beautiful San Francisco! Went to the Hardly Strictly Blue Grass Festival at Golden Gate Park on Saturday and were wowed by the Blue Angels over the bay yesterday. Life is good.
I love San Francisco. Today we went sailing, watched the Blue Angels on the bay, were circled by America's Cup race boats as they warmed up, rushed to Golden Gate Park for Chris Robinson Brotherhood with friends, and now heading to catch Big Gigantic at the Regency then Dead Winter Carpenters at Brick and Mortar. What a life.
This day in Rock... 1947 – Bob Weir (Robert Hall) of the Grateful Dead is born in San Francisco, CA. 1964 – The Beatles record 13 takes of “Eight Days a Week.” It’s the first time Lennon and McCartney have gone into the studio with an incomplete song, then finish it during the recording process. 1966 – Big Brother & the Holding Company perform at the Love Pageant Rally in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. 1967 – The UFO Club closes in London. Formerly the Blarney Club, the venue became a favorite of psychedelic bands like Pink Floyd. 1969 – Record buyers are shocked to discover that the latest Beatles single wasn’t written by Lennon and McCartney. Instead, George Harrison’s “Something” is the A-side that lands in record shops today. As well as going to No. 3, it turns out to be one of the best songs ever written. Cheers, George.

San Francisco until Monday night. Going to walk those streets, run that red bridge, wade in that bay, ride those Cable Cars, do grass angels in Golden Gate Park, find Uncle Jesse in that "Full House" home. San Fran, you've never forsaken me.

We could not figure out how to share this comment but we wanted all our friends to see it: Leslie Coupe about an hour ago · .. Did you know? Ellis Lake was once an unsightly spillway of the Feather River. It wasn't until 1924 that the Women's Improvement Club of Marysville commissioned Robbie McLaren, famed designer of the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, to turn the swamp into a beautiful lake. The project was completed in 1939. The lake, named for Marysville citizen W.T. Ellis, Jr. offers a pleasant walk, picnic areas, and fishing. Work on the lake was completed by unemployed local men during the Great Depression through President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal Plan. Located in Marysville, California, Ellis Lake has been the most memorable centerpiece of the City of Marysville since the 1930s. It is a sparkling man-made lake surrounded by lush greenery and sidewalks with flocks of ducks, geese and a variety of other birds. Feeding the geese has been a recreational activity enjoyed by the Yuba-Sutter A ...

You see, a part of me completely understands the irritation of such an influx of 'political stuff'..really I do. I was just brought up at a time (Vietnam War) in San Francisco where my single mom marched in Golden Gate Park, the Height, etc. believing in a cause...very important cause(s) (The war and Civil Rights)..so you see...it IS important to stand and have a voice for what you believe...incredibly important. Many before us 'believed' and acted...THEY made a difference in all of our lives...so can we... xoxox

No city does Halloween quite like San Francisco. While many may check out the party scene in the Castro, go trick-or-treating in Noe Valley, or visit the Pet Cemetery in the Presidio, few have the courage to brave Stow Lake at night. The famous ghost story and legend of Stow Lake has been circulating for nearly 100 years, and it goes something like this: Once upon a time at Stow Lake, in Golden Gate Park, there was a lady who was walking her baby in a stroller. After a while, this lady got tired and rested on the bench next to the lake, with the stroller right next to her. While she was sitting, another lady came to sit down next to her and they started talking. While they were conversing, the stroller rolled away unnoticed. The stroller with the baby fell in the lake. After the two women finished talking, the lady noticed her baby was gone and panicked right away. She then walked around Stow Lake and asked people, “Have you seen my baby?” She spent all day and all night asking everyone. When the nigh ...
Had a great day in San Francisco. Shawns birthday went well. We have both always wanted to go to Haight & Ashbury and today we checked it off our bucket list. We also checked out Golden Gate Park and crossed the Golden Gate Bridge. Ate dinner in a little greek restaurant near Sausalito. Travelled back via the Bay Bridge and came home. Ah what a great day!!!
Thank you to all who took a few moments to wish me a Happy Birthday last week. I was in San Francisco for nine days, and got to see Neil Young play in Golden Gate Park on my birthday. Had a great day! Thanks again.
Business Week ranks San Francisco on its America's 50 Best Cities list. Oakland comes in at San Jose is Here is its review of San Francisco: "San Francisco has it all. From culture, such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, to the leafy trees and conservatory of Golden Gate Park to the hippie history of the Haight, the city by the bay is a thriving, soulful city. The extensive restaurants, bars, and corresponding nightlife are the cherry on top."
Highlights, surprises and pictures from Outside Lands at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA from August 10 to 12, featuring Neil Young, Metallica, Big Gigantic and more.
Golden Gate Park was Rocking and Rolling on Saturday with Outside Lands, but Roxanne, Rafe and I decided to experience the "Quake House" at the Academy of Science. Then we walked the Haight. Awesome day to be in San Francisco and to be a San Franciscan!
Mission get into Outside Lands yesterday was a bust, instead ate too much mushroom dust Frollicking about in Golden Gate Park, trying to regain our composure, to get to the bar before dark Needing to get inside, to reduce our exposure A dreary San Francisco day in August, thick foggy sheets of water flying through the air Slight case of wanderlust, such an interesting yet strange affair Laughing in cold, delirious bliss Getting attacked by pigeons and the mutant turkey duck, it doesn't get any weirder than this They wanted our cheeze-it's And of course it's just my luck, so little would hit me so hard All normal thought now a disregard Trying to embrace it and not get stuck, on the focus of past and present, of insecurity and resent In the dimly lit bar bathroom, wash my hands in the sink Trying to focus on my self in the mirror, trying to think a little more clearer Back at the bar, can't stop stirring my drink Paranoid everyone's looking at me Oh what they must think!! Gulp down the liquor, feel the bur ...
Ahhh I took a nice long bike ride from Daly City up the coast of San Francisco to Seal Rocks at Ocean Beach. Stopped for lunch at the zoo. Then I rode through Golden Gate Park across to Civic Center just in time to watch the US women's basketball team take the gold! Saw a few really neat wildlife photo opportunities and such. (My phone is broken, it will be replaced Tuesday.)
My plans for the weekend got screwed. We were going to go to San Francisco to escape the heat, but with the Lands End concert/festival going on in Golden Gate Park, that means parking will be non-existant. I'll try to run some errands instead and will attend the YoLex event on Sunday instead. I should go slave a computer up and have it upload stuff to YouTube for me. Lots to edit!
Jacky just called and he said they're almost there lol. They gonna proceed to Golden Gate Park & watch the band called "Justice" and missed Neil Young coz he's already playing as we speak. Thank you Lord for your guidance and ask to still continue to protect them and be with them throughout the duration of this weekend's music festival in San Francisco. More artists/musicians performing tomorrow or Sunday like Stevie Wonder,Foo Fighters etc. And Lord, as they go also to their resting place Wharf, may you keep them safe and sound. Thank you Lord for your love & mercy amen.
Once again, I must ask myself the annual question: If I am all the way down here by Stern Grove, @ 2 1/2 miles away, and I can hear Outside Lands through my closed window like I'm less than a 100' from the stage, and the bass is vibrating the floor of my room, what in gawd's name must it be like if you actually live next to Golden Gate Park?? --and mind you, I'm a BIG supporter of live entertainment, and San Francisco being home to Great & Amazing Stuff To Do (rather than being a haven for NIMBYs and elitist no-fun'ners.) but still... Wow... this must pretty much suck for a lot of people.
Unless you have tickets to the highly anticipated Outside Lands Festival in Golden Gate Park, you are probably wondering what there is to do in San Francisco th
I am a bit envious of...but mostly happy for...my son, Danny, who is in San Francisco for a three day concert called "Outside Lands"' at Golden Gate Park. WIth over seventy bands, the Headliners include Foo Fighters, Neil Young, Jack White, Stevie Wonder, Metallica, Beck, Norah Jones, Tom Morello etc. I want to hit it next year.
Well, it was 17 years ago this AM. My phone kept ringing and eventually I finally dragged my *** out of bed & listened to the messages..."Bummer about Jerry", "So sorry to hear about Jerry" etc..One of them was even from my Mom...so, I turned on the radio (there was no internet as we know it yet) and many stations were playing Grateful Dead. At that moment I knew..."Jerry has left the auditorium". I was of course totally bummed, but decided to grab my guitar and head down to San Francisco...I went to Golden Gate Park polo field and there was a small group of approximately 35-50 people there...Another dude had a guitar & I asked "wanna play some tunes"? We started jamming and a few more players joined in & before long we had a furious "Grateful Jam" going...The people that were there and very somber turned celebratory & started dancing around...it certainly was a very moving moment...Next thing, the news media folks seemed to pop up out of the bushes with their news cameras & the like...It's like they were ...

Disney like to say that Walt Disney World is the size of San Francisco, but... you can almost fit all 4 theme parks in Golden Gate Park!
All Good is a wrap!...great seeing everyone at the new site and big thanks to everyone in the Cerberus crew for doing another great job. Spags and I could not do it without you guys. Next up.Outside Lands in San Francisco and Golden Gate Park for 2 weeks!
Alright, so: By chance, I'm headed to San Francisco next Friday. Wondering what things there are to do for cheap that are fun, crazy, and will definitely give me my first taste of the city. I've looked around and found a few things, and obviously I'm walking, walking, walking and hitting up City Lights, Vesuvio, Telegraph Hill Stairs, Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies, Haight-Ashbury, the Castro, Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, walking the Golden Gate Bridge... What am I missing, people?! This is my first ever time, and I don't think I'm going to like the super-touristy things like the Embarcadero or Fisherman's Wharf or Coit Tower or even (though I probably will) the Cable Cars. This is a broke *** spur-of-the-moment, tagalong adventure for a weekend, and I want to take in as much as I can. I want to explode. I know a lot of you SFers are going to be at the Men's Gathering, but if anyone's staying in town, I could use a guide or two. Thank you! I can't wait...
A big thanks to everyone for your support in our fundraising efforts. Because of your generosity - Mario and I were able to raise just over $5K to support the AIDS Legal Referral Panel ("ALRP") at the AIDS Walk last week - we actually exceeded our fundraising goal by $1K! This put us in the top 25 fundraisers for this event in San Francisco. We were blown away by everyone's generosity. Thank you thank you thank you. Our "Legal Eagles" team raised a total of just over $23K and will be receiving a grant from the AIDS Walk for an additional $10K, making this the most successful AIDS Walk ever for the ALRP. On top of that, we had a total ball Sunday during the walk in Golden Gate Park. For those of you who have been traveling or unable to register your donation - there's still time! Please use the below link sometime during the next week. Our fundraising efforts this month have been a significant gain to ALRP as it faces potential budget cuts in federal and local grants. special shout out to our younges ...
Spent the day in San Francisco, did a Segway tour of Golden Gate Park, went to Twin Peaks, did the Golden Gate overlook, hot fudge sundaes at Ghiardelli Square, and a walk around Fisherman's Wharf. All in all a good day!

Hey Josef Montreaux, Your Saturday night San Francisco ticket came in the mail yesterday. It is big and beautiful. It tells tales of hi-jinx that lay in wait. It promises of rich Italian food in North Beach. It whispers of late-nites in fancy bars. It beckons to party in strange hotel rooms. It teases of soccer drills in Golden Gate Park. And finally, when the lights get low, it dances the "Downton Abbey."
Day 2: Took the city bus. Walked the Golden Gate Bridge and back. Went to Golden Gate Park, The California Academy of Science. Walked up and down Lomarde Street (the crookedest street in San Francisco). Cable car ride. Checked out Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower (incredible view), Pier 39 and had homemade icecream for supper. Another full day.

Adam Lambert paid tribute to the late Donna Summer rather beautifully at a recent show. While playing a set in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, Adam
I just went for a bike ride around Lake Merced and ended up riding down to Ocean Beach. Where I walked for a hour by the Pacific. I got back on my bike rode up threw Golden Gate Park. By the way they are done renovating the old windmills (beautiful) Made my way home a sweaty mess where I am drinking my good friends wine a decent red. A product of Spain, Piedemonte Gamma 2008. I love San Francisco the most beautiful city in America.
Was in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco seeing Adam Lambert in concert today with Alex Mulholland.
Boy oh Girl what a day in San Francisco :party: Pride Celebration this morning at the Civic Center, San Francisco Giant's just beat the Oakland A's, all day party at Golden Gate Park and Delores Park and Fun fun & more fun in the Castro right now :party:
We used to feed the Flower Children in 1967 (and there were thousand of them), on what we grew in our backyards and little peninsula farms south of San Francisco. I was 11 years old, but I grew tomatoes and potatoes like my grandfather, turned over the lawn in the back yard in Palo Alto. My Mom would take me to Los Altos to a meditation group with a Zen priest from Japan, named Shunryu Suzuki. I went with some teenage neighbor girls to Monterey Pop. But mostly we just grew beans on the fence,and took them and the potatoes and tomatoes North of San Francisco, and in the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park. That's how you made Digger Bean Soup. The people fed the people.
I am lying here reading while Jax finishes up his nap. Sam is sleeping in the other room, still getting over his cold. I do not mean to resort to sexist generalities, but in my experience, here is the difference between men and women. When women get a headcold, they complain a bit, and take daytime cold medicine, and maybe go a little easy on themselves. Men start to act as if they are in final stage pancreatic cancer. They stagger around, like Snaggletooth playing Shakespeare. They struggle to speak, and then they ALWAYS say, "I'm sick as a dog." The worst news is that Armistead Maupin is moving from San Francisco. I do not remember the committee authorizing this. It's crazy, as if the gladiolas at the Golden Gate Park arboretum decided to pack up and leave. I know it has something to do with Armistead's cute young husband, Chris. He's at the root of this--I HOPE YOU'RE PLEASED WITH YOUR LITTLE PRINCESS SELF, CHRISTOPHER. If the two of them do not come crawling back within a few years, I will ...
Spent yesterday in San Francisco, Golden Gate Park-Japanese Tea Garden & park area, Pier 39-dinner at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co.-great food, finished the evening at Ghirardelli Square with coffee & chocolate. Fog rolled in before we could get across the Golden Gate Bridge for a city night picture.
Donna and I got home at 2 a.m. this morning after an awesome trip to San Francisco. Our 4th trip out there, and man we covered lots of ground this time. Gonna post some pics after we get 'em downloaded from the camera/phones. We watched Matt Cain pitch the first perfect game in SF Giants history on Wed., saw the opening rd. of the US Open on Thur. w/ my cousin Chris and his dad (uncle Bill) and bro-in-law (John), then I played for our niece's wedding on Sat. - congrats Jenny and Oliver! it was a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Golden Gate Park! Before flying home yesterday we had an incredible lunch with Chris and his wife Lily at their house. We feasted on king crab, bbq ribs, shrimp, awesome local wines, and lots of side dishes. Wow, what a meal! Lily you are an incredible cook! For a nice capper to the trip, I got free drinks on the plane - the really cool stewardess we met said the cc machine wasn't working, so the drinks I ordered were free. Very cool; can't beat that. Outstanding trip, but a ...

Getting the word out since I know folks in the Bay Area and some who might have been at the race. The victim in an assault that occurred on May 20, 2012 in Sharon Meadows in Golden Gate Park has died from his injury. Stephen Martin, 31, of Santa Clara, died on Friday, June 8 at San Francisco General Hospital. Martin had attended the May 20 Bay to Breakers Race with a group of friends, all in troll costumes. At approximately 5:00 P.M., there was a confrontation between Martin’s group and another group consisting of about 12 males and females. The males in the group were wearing 49’er white and red jerseys. Some of the females in the group were wearing purple clothing and one was wearing an orange tutu.

I heard today on NPR that Doc Watson died today -while I was driving home. I want to set down finally what happened between him and I in October, 2008. I have been meaning to do this for four years -but now is THE time. I want to set it down before the sun sets here in San Francisco -especially while his flying picking still resounds in my ears. When he gets going -I mean really gets going- I think he can lose anyone -who is trying to follow his playing. I'm convinced that is his game. It leaves you smiling -overwhelmed by his skill. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass October 7, 2008. Golden Gate Park. I found my old teacher and college adviser John Cohen of the New Lost City Ramblers over at Porch Stage where I had guessed he would be: listening to his good friends Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin. His band, NLCR had played the day before on Saturday but it had looked like Woodstock. There was no way I could get near him on that day to say hi. Today he looked at me fairly shocked (It had been 37 years, and 25 since ...
Does the West still want to free Tibet? By Joshua Keating: Adam Yauch, who passed away last week at the age of 47, will of course be remembered primarily as MCA from the Beastie Boys. But his role as the music industry's primary advocate for Tibetan independence may be a close second: In addition to his career with the Beastie Boys, Yauch was heavily involved in the movement to free Tibet. A founder of the Milarepa Fund, Yauch was instrumental in the first Tibetan Freedom Concert in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park 1996, which drew 100,000 people – the largest U.S. benefit concert since 1985's Live Aid. As Slate's David Weigel recalls, the concerts "became punchlines, eventually, but they started as expressly political events intended to sign up new recruits to a human rights cause that the government (then the glorious Clinton-Gingrich cohabitation) didn't want to touch." Yauch, a practicing Buddhist whose wife was Tibetan, was uniquely committed to that cause. But with his passing, it's hard not to be ...
Spent the entire day exploring San Francisco from Golden Gate Park to Alcatraz Island and points between.
Today in 1977...Jefferson Airplane are barred from giving a free concert at Golden Gate Park when San Francisco authorities pass a resolution banning electronic instruments. The group later wrote "We Built this City" about the ban. ps Happy Birthday to Joan Crawford n Joan Collins..
Jonas was always talking about going on the road, I suppose he got it from reading Jack Kerouac, I thought it was exciting, the carefree craziness of not knowing where you might end up, who you might hook up with - the adventure of it all. One time he went on the road with a girl named Barb, the day they left, several of us gave blood for money, lots of people did back then, it was an easy way to get some cash. Somethng to help with "traveling" expenses. After picking apples in Washington, they spent some time in San Francisco, Jonas had an old friend there, who let them crash in her house by Golden Gate Park. After a month or so, he got sick of Barb and came back to Des Moines, I was waiting for him at So's Your Mother, it was a happy reunion as I recall. The only time that the two of us went on the road was when we hitchhiked to White Bear Lake in Minnesota, where his parents lived, they were out of town so we spent a few days hanging out with his brother, Patrick, he was still in high school and wanted ...
On Thursday, May 24th, San Francisco's Planning Commission and Recreation and Park Commission could approve turning seven acres of Golden Gate Park into an artificially turfed sports complex.

On the news tonight... just a few hours ago the city of San Francisco renamed a road in Golden Gate Park after Nancy Pelosi. Seriously? I guess you have to drive on the far far left, maybe even drive off the road on the left..

can't believe this footage is on YouTube! Me, my brother and my friends were at this actual concert. At the Polo Fields in Golden Gate Park, here in San Francisco, May 1996. I was very impressed with the Beastie Boys' - especially Adam Yauch's - commitment to Tibetan causes.

Count your Blessings! From Debbie's Aunt Dorothy in an email today: FYI: In case you have forgotten, at 5:00 am 106 years ago today, April 18, 1906, Honey, age 3, my sister Margaret, age 7 and my grandparents were staying in the Palace Hotel on Market Street in San Francisco. They had come down from Elko Nevada, where they lived, to hear Caruso sing the night before at the Opera House. The earthquake hit and Honey remembers being led down the dark stairway, holding his mother's hand. She had on a dressing gown and her hair was undone and down her back. They rode in the back of a wagon and spent the next day in Golden Gate Park (with Janette McDonald singing "San Francisco). The city was burning. They made their way eventually down to the water and my grandfather put Grandmother Smith and the children on a boat headed for Seattle. He gave her some money and said to get back to Elko however she could. He stayed in SF to help fight the fire. Poor Grandmother Smith. From that day on she never went ...
FILM FACT: The 1936 musical-drama "San Francisco" is based on the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The film, which was the top grossing movie of that year, stars Clark Gable, Jeanette MacDonald, & Spencer Tracy. The then very popular singing of MacDonald helped make this film a hit. W. D. Griffith helped direct the famous earthquake sequence. The plot concerns a Barbary Coast saloonkeeper 'Blackie Norton' (Gable), who hires a promising but impoverished classically-trained singer named 'Mary Blake' (MacDonald). Meanwhile, the 'Blackie's' childhood friend, Roman Catholic Father 'Tim Mullen' (Tracy), keeps trying to reform him. Then, at 5:13 a.m. April 18, 1906, the earthquake hits. As the US Army troops from the Presidio prepare to blow up mansions as firebreaks. Father Tim takes Blackie to Golden Gate Park, where he sinks to his knees & finds God upon discovering that Mary survived. The surrounding people (a surprisingly multi-racial group, given the era of the film) march from Golden Gate Park, arm-in-arm, ...

I recently bought a copy of "Gimme Shelter" and rewatched it. For those who don't know what "Gimme Shelter" is about is the recording of the free music concert The Stones gave (along with Airplane, Dead, etc.) in 1969 four months after Woodstock at the Altamont Freeway. If you catch 280 from the central valley of CA. to San Francisco you drive right over it. One would think cool, Woodstock and Gimme Shelter all in four months ! The problem was no less than five people were killed at Altamont. How could something like this happen ? Picture this; the location was changed from Golden Gate Park, to Sears Point (Raceway), finally to Altamont Speedway. Approx. 150,000 people started out to Golden Gate Park, and ended up at Altamont, picking up another 150,000 people along the way. Guess who was hired for security ? *** Jagger made a deal with the Major local chapters of the *** Angels (S.F. and L.a.) and their payment was 500.00 worth of beer for providing security per chapter. They were told to sit .. ...
