Quote of the Day – Martin Luther King Jr.


Today you get two great quotes for the price of one – both are very timely. While we honor the great Martin Luther King Jr., on this holiday, today is a good day to pause and remind ourselves that: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Original link Original author: Thomas Kelleher

Quote Of The Day – Robert Frost


Today’s Quote Of The Day – or rather This Month’s Quote Of The Day as it’s been a while since the last one (sorry) – comes from the one and only Robert Frost, who was an American poet and he knew it, perhaps best known for The Road Not Taken. He was also born in San Francisco, which means he was probably a Giants fan for a couple of years, when they didn’t suck. Anyway, here’s to discovering.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

dogsgiving
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” – William Arthur Ward While this has indeed been a very weird year we all have a lot to be grateful for, and this is a great opportunity to focus on and acknowledge all the positive things in our lives. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with lots of  love, appreciation, gratitude, laughter, a big-ass turkey with all the trimmings, and football (yes, we’ll be watching football as always) with family, friends, pets and loved-ones.

Let’s look at the bigger picture here.


Hey look, some sanity! I encourage you to watch these three minutes from Dallas sportscaster Dale Hansen talking about what Trump doesn’t understand about the national anthem and the right to protest, courtesy of Media Matters for America . Dallas sportscaster Dale Hansen talking about what Trump doesn’t understand about the national anthem and the right to protest. And by the way, just a little reminder: the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag says “…indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” That’s the whole point of Colin Kaepernick’s protest — as a country we’ve lost sight of those values, and we can’t look the other way among wrongdoings against African Americans and minoriti...

Quote Of The Day – G. K. Chesterton


Howdy. It’s been a while. Sorry. Today’s much anticipated and long over due Quote Of The Day comes from Gilbert Keith Chesterton, or G.K. Chesterton, a British journalist, novelist, poet, biographer, and essayist active during 1900-1936 . He is often referred to as the prince of paradox by “making his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories, after first turning them inside out,” as described by Time magazine.  Chesterton is probably best known for his popular series of short stories featuring the fictional priest/detective character Father Brown, weird glasses and bad haircuts.

What’s so funny ’bout peace, love and understanding?


I was reminded over the weekend how much I love living in the Bay Area, and am extremely proud of how San Francisco and its major Ed Lee, residents and our connected community handled the various protests taking place on Saturday. Everything from shutting down the far right extremist group Patriot Prayer rally at Crissy Field by encouraging hundreds of dog owners to come and carpet the field in advance with l ots and lots of dog poo (which they did) to show how welcome they were, to the peaceful counter protests taking part throughout the city, to the “Peace, Love and Understanding” rally downtown that we attended as a family and with friends. The brown carpet treatment at Crissy Field seeme...

Aloha and Aloha


Vacation. Twelve days of it with our annual family “retreat” to Maui. Some days seemed too long, some too short. Ups and downs, highs and lows. Typical family vacation stuff. Fun fact about me: I loath traveling for long periods of time (i.e. the act of physically getting to one place to the other, like airports and being stuck in a crowded, uncomfortable, back achingly, germ-filled airplane with clueless passengers, shitty food and vomit bags at the ready, for example,) but love being in a place that we all find to be so magical. A family vacation, especially when traveling with extended family and kids, can really only be so relaxing. But I think overall we did a pretty good job of  practi...

Quote Of The Day – Jack London

jack-london-2
Today’s first Quote Of The Day of the New Year comes from San Francisco Bay Area native author, journalist, short story write and social activist Jack London, who was one of the first fiction writers to actually earn big bags of cash and obtain worldwide celebrity status from his writing efforts alone. He might be best known for The Call of the Wild, White Fang, To Build a Fire and The Sea Wolf. In 1906 he published an eye-witness report of the San Francisco earthquake in Collier’s magazine titled: “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! SHIIIIIIIIIIIT!” (Okay I made up that last part. The actual headline was The Story Of An Eyewitness, but I think my version was far more engaging and probably more accurate.) He ...
