    Good to "see" you here again Len! Happy New Year to you and the Mrs! :razz:

    P.S. Just heard that Double Punch in North Beach closed it's doors :cry:

    Another toy store and gallery venue that's evaporated in SF. They had a great window wall with a mural by Mr. Bwana

    Many fun and interesting shows were put on in the upstairs gallery, sadly no more... :cry: Sign of the times of higher rents in the City :(

    Happy New Year to you, too.

    That's too bad about Double Punch. I went to a bunch of great shows there.

    Oh wow, that is truly sad news. It wasn't too long ago that I popped in for a visit and there was no indication that they were going to close shop. I wouldn't be surprised if it was indeed a case of ye olde San Francisco greedy landlord syndrome. North Beach just got a little more boring.

    It's been a long time since I've seen any of the BASK crew in person but just wanted to pop in here to say "howdy!" 8)

    :| Aw, what a bummer. Last time I was there was during an Uglydoll exhibition.

    Looking for something to do over the long upcoming weekend?
    If you have not seen the Coit Tower murals, the news is, the Tower has been rennovated, art work restored, and it's now open to the public again (after being closed for 6 months). Well worth a gander... :shock:

    The little Aquatic House on the Wharf is also a little jewel! Small, yet filled with treasures, and the murals there are quite nice.

    Whoops! Sorry Bryce :oops: :oops: :oops: No we never had time to meet up to go see the secret toy cave :x :razz: . Brian was very kind to extend the invitation, so maybe one day we can beg for another invite?

    Ok, I thought I was dreaming, I heard what I thought were coyote howls in McLaren Park (one of the best kept "secret" parks in SF), and I DEFINITELY did see a gray fox dash in front of me, driving in the park neighborhood at 2am. Boy I was shocked at that one! Pretty cool, and I wonder if the drought is making them range further to find their food sources...

    *Stay out of the park at night, it's not safe...

    Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! It's frigidly cold tonight in the East Bay--too cold to stay late and work. Hovering just above freezing outside, so I better get home to feed the kittees and avoid black ice. My heating bills are going to be expensive this month! Ok, stay warm everyone :)

    The only good part of DST in Spring is that my cat Rokit wakes me up at 6:30 now in stead of 5:30.


    "good"

    Man! It's brutal. The inside temp of the house got up to 98 degrees F today, well over 107 F, outside in the afternoon. Its 93F inside the house right now, with all windows wide open, and all fans set to high :x Poor kittees are so hot! Hoping it will cool down soon. Those who are not from SF, FYI, most houses do not have air conditioning.

    And I see ya with a Disco queen, flashing disco ball, and men in blue for backup ;)

    It is cooler today, although the kittees are still snuggled up against cold bottles of carbonated water (they don't like ice bags :oops:)

    The other night was kinda weird. The fog rolled in but it was still warm.
