Certainly Not
Saturday. A drink after work last night devolved into a BART ride to San Francisco and Guinness with a group of ex-patriot Brits who undoubtedly went long into the evening after I bailed about eight, getting home in relatively good shape and ready to wake up without a hangover. Which I did. I think. They say knowledge arrives through experience (drink much beer, have much hangover), but I'm not ready yet to make a judgement. There is a respected school of thought that says you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

So, what to do, what to do? Monday I'll have HereInOakland and ThereInOakland online. I also have, but I'm not sure what to do with it. A friend suggested it would make a nice email address ( for a large category of individuals and it occurred to me it might make a singles site, not unlike a chocolate shop that bills itself a “calories without concern” weight loss emporium, “we're looking for a mate, but we're not looking for a mate cause we're the Grateful Unwed”. But these are idle thoughts. Pay no attention. I have some domain names. Who says I have to do anything with them?

Certainly not anyone here.

Certainly not.

The photograph was taken on Bainbridge Island near Seattle last weekend with a Nikon D2x mounted with a 17-55mm f 2.8 Nikkor lens at 1/125th second at f 4.0 at ISO 100.
