We thought we'd spice things up for the season by changing colors on our site, (yes, because we can easily do so!) to reflect the season a little bit with just some Halloween overtones.
What are some of the BEST areas to go trick-or-treating in San Francisco? Our traditional spots (we've been raising kids in The City for almost 10 years now) are: The Seacliff area has a suburbian feel to it, albeit a very upscale one akin to Beverly Hills or the like. The other is Lake Street corridor. The decorations and numbers of smaller kids in both areas before sundown are pretty good, meaning: it's relatively safe. Once it's dark, watch out as to not get run over by the big kids! -And what I mean by big kids is: High-Schoolers! Yeah, they didn't get the memo that Halloween is pretty much over at 12-14. Especially high-School age! That's our only pet-peeve with the day, or should we say night!
So if there are any "big-kids" out there running around, go slow for the little kids. It's more for them anyway.
I don't remember this picture, but if the caption is true, then this makes for an interesting conversation. Notice the "Sarah, wife of Lot" who looked back type of gesture by the woman in the picture. Is this because married women in particular, have a tendency to do so? "I still remember the time you _____!!!" is a typical phrase, -right guys? I am blessed to have a wife who is more forgiving and more forgetting of such things. (Or she's not letting on! -I don't know which!) I do like the fact that they are both leaving some bad experience behind, -together! Even though a black cat is at their heels! Sometimes it's best to just start over, TOGETHER. Man without Woman and Woman without Man is not the best way to go about life, and scientific studies have proven the fact that those married are healthier, too.
We'll try to come up with a theme for the Holidays next, but will not implement until after Black Friday! Any earlier plays TOO much into the corporate "shop-now" mentality, missing the true meaning of each of the Holidays we celebrate.
Have a safe, fun Halloween!
