same as it everwas

  • Christmas Eve

    We were invited to the Central Baptist Church by Betty, our landlord of two months, while we looked for our house. The service was an hour long. We sang a few hymns and had the lyrics conveniently projected onto the screen behind the pulpit, listened to a short sermon, then watched a short film that…

  • Udell on the definition of Blog

    Jon Udell hits the mark again. I should be packing up for our big move up to the city (starting from January 3rd we’ll be at 548 4th Street in San Francisco) but got distracted reading an old InfoWorld column where Jon talks about the definition of blogs. A blog is more than the simplistic…

  • Run, Robot, Run

    Honda made a robot that can run.

  • Hamako Sushi

    Last night Izumi and I went to Sushi Hamako on Carl Street in San Francisco. Run by a husband & wife team out of the ground floor of an old Victorian a few blocks from Haight-Ashbury, they’ve been putting out great sushi for the past 20 years. Open from 6:30pm until, “the rice runs out”…

  • Care Package

    We sent a care package to a friend’s cousin who is on the front lines in Iraq. Ramen noodles, socks, chapstick, note paper and some letters from the kids. We don’t necessarily support the political reasons for the war over there but we do want to show our support in some way and connect with…

  • New TypePad Widget

    Today we launched a new sidebar widget which pulls in your Amazon wishlist and displays thumbnail images from the items into a graphic which you can put into your sidebar.

  • Playing Father Christmas

    Playing Father Christmas

    Tonight I had the rare privilege of keeping the dream alive for some 70 kids who came to our street to visit with Santa. Our street gets totally decked out in lights for the month (we even got covered in the SF Chronicle) and to cap things off, we have a little Santa’s workshop thing…

Who am I?
