Union Point Park


On my way to the Oakland airport Friday, I hit really bad Friday afternoon traffic. I had my handy GPS so I took an alternate non-freeway route. Imagine my delight when I drove by Union Point Park. I only had a few minutes to spare but I snapped up several photos. I put them all in a slide show (hit the picture above to access show.) Don't forget to hit the "i" in the circle to get the comments for each photo. There are comments for each one so if you don't see a comment, hit the left arrow to go back and then the right to go forward again.

I hope you like them. Come on, you want to see the shiny stainless steel toilet, right??



UPDATE: Here is a link to the official site for Union Point Park.

Yardbirds in Dublin


While in Northern CA, I visited some of the Home Depot Yardbirds. It is a smaller hardware store. I just loved it. It is so much cleaner and nice than the typical Home Depot store. Here is a picture of the store in Dublin, CA.

(The picture of the Dublin seal will take you to their official website and the town's history.)

More beautiful pics in Livermore


I put together some of pictures that I took in Livermore. I took some from the hotel room because the colors in the sky and hills were just breathtaking. Clicking on the picture will take you to the slide show. (When you are in the slide show, if you see a circle with an "i" in it, hit it so you can see the comments for each slide.)

Fun times in Livermore, CA


I was in Northern CA on Thursday and Friday. I got to drive all over and see so many pretty towns and sites. Thursday, I spent the night in Livermore. As a joke, I took some pictures of the establishments within walking distance of my hotel and emailed them to my co-works back in LA so they could see the rockin' time I was going to have that evening...

Mimi's





Jessica and I wanted to go somewhere close to home for her last dinner. We went to Mimi's Cafe which is a chain out here on the west coast. They also have three locations in Ohio, one which is in Columbus. Go figure. Jessica and I practiced our French while we ate...Bon App├ętit!

Fred's and Juno



Jessica and I went to one of our favorite HB (Huntington Beach) restaurants, Fred's. However, this time only I had a margarita. After dinner, we saw the movie "Juno" which I loved, loved, loved. I highly recommend it.

Del Amo


After Dim Sum, Jessica and I hit a few malls. This is a picture of the Del Amo mall (which again is very close to my work - who knew??) after dark. I bought more shampoo.

Dim Sum is Yum Yum


On Sunday, Jessica and I went to the Sea Empress to have Dim Sum. I had never realized it was so close to my work. After, we went to visit the Hello Kitty store and check out the new Pacific grocery store. I bought some shampoo (I think) straight from Japan. Click the picture for a slide show of the pictures I took.

Happy Valentine's Day!



Here is a picture of my office right now! The flowers were from the guys in "heavy glass." Sweet, huh?

The Baked Potato


We had lunch in Studio City today across from this restaurant. The sign was so cute that I HAD to take a picture...

Another beautiful day in LA...



We went to measure some new condos in Sherman Oaks today. The weather was beautiful - it was in the high 70's and sunny. I had to take a picture of the blooming tree just to remind myself that it really is February. See how we roll in Southern CA?

Can't we all just get along?


Stormy really wants to cuddle up next to Miska bust she is NOT having it. This is the closest that Stormy has been to Miska. Seconds after this picture was taken, Miska clobbered Stormy on the head...stay tuned.

Stormy is here!





Miska and I welcomed a new kitty to the household, Stormy. Miska "welcomed" Stormy by attacking him. Stormy is 3 - 4 months old, full of energy and really, really affectionate.

Sunnyvale


Last weekend, I helped with a Home Show in Santa Clara. We stayed in a hotel in Sunnyvale (not Buffy's Sunnydale). Unfortunately, it rained all but the last day. These pictures were taken from the window of my hotel room. Pretty even in the rain and wind...
