You do the math kids, but that’s something like 30 cents per mile, you know, with sales tax ‘n stuff:
But they feel like they’re already broken in from the get-go, so that’s gotta be worth something…
Is Horrible Noe Valley “Wife Swap” Monster Stephen Fowler Responsible for Attacking Redwood Trees in Mill Valley? PhotoThursday, November 1st, 2012
Remember this guy from a little while back, this Stephen Fowler asshole?
Here’s the notorious video. (Man that planning commish hearing about a certain place in Noe Valley just went on and on, huh? And hey, I wonder who ratted out that long-time Asian American dude* who lost his rental in NV owing to the lack of an Occupancy Permit? Mmmm… Anyway, Mr. Fowler is still reviled in Noe Valley.)
And before that, there was this one. Whew, good times.
And now there’s this, a new allegation that Stephen Fowler had something to do with these Marin County trees getting hacked (to death?) up in Mill Valley.

As always, We Report, You Decide.
I mean, maybe this tale is completely made up, you know, the way people would make up stories about Mussolini having a devil’s tail, you know, sometimes people decide to not like you and then they’ll just start making stuff up.
Here they are, the allegations:
“Just wanted to pass along another example of Wife-Swapping Stephen Fowler’s example of hypocrisy. He purchased a home this spring in Mill Valley, 317 Hillside for $800,000, tore it down and is now building a 3.5 million $$ spec house to flip. When the bank foreclosed on his neighbor at 300 Hillside across the street this spring, Stephen approached the owner, a general contractor at the time, a few days before the bank took the house away and paid the home owner to have a few of his employees illegally climb 10 Heritage Redwood trees, cut 20-30 feet off the tops of them thus freeing up the view of San Francisco for Stephens new house project. For a self proclaimed tree hugger, he has balls. See the photo’s of just a few of the trees…”
Now, didn’t S. Fowler go on the TV to promote environmental awareness? I think so.
And didn’t he have all these kinds of shirts on – who made them, one wonders. Who forced poor Mr. Fowler into doing things he didn’t want to and saying things he didn’t want to say?
Anyway, somebody up Marin way might want to look into these tree allegations.
But remember, S Fowler makes more in one week than you do in one year!
*Robert Hanamura – whatever happened to that guy?
OMG, OMG, Meet Hundreds of Adorable Goats Today at the Presidio! Nature’s Lawnmowers Come to the Golf CourseTuesday, August 7th, 2012
Get on up to the Presidio today at 1:00 PM to see hundreds of goats being delivered to clean up the areas surround our Presidio Golf Course. Deets below.

Oh, here they are:

All the deets:
“NATURE’S LAWNMOWERS” REPORT FOR TOUR OF DUTY AT PRESIDIO GOLF COURSE
Date: Tuesday August 7, 2012
Location: Presidio Golf Course; behind the clubhouse (300 Finley Road, inside the Arguello Gate)
Who: The Presidio Trust and Arnold Palmer Golf welcome a herd of goats to the Presidio Golf Course to tame the overgrown ivy, blackberry and hemlock that have popped up around the links. The goats will arrive at 1:00pm on Tuesday, August 7 and will be corralled at the clubhouse for about an hour when the public can “meet the goats.” After all the goats are unloaded, they will be shepherded by three border collies to a site near the driving range.
What: The 250-300 Boer goats begin their culinary odyssey in an overgrown thicket behind the driving range. The hungry herd’s two-week tour of duty will be spent chomping through weeds and transforming them into natural fertilizer, allowing native grasses to flourish. Once the unwanted vegetation has been eaten back, not only can errant golf balls be retrieved, but serpentine soil will be revealed. The hope is long buried seeds will sprout, enabling native wildflowers and grasses to once again take root and thrive. The goats’ next stop will be a wetland area near the 4TH hole now thick with thistle and hemlock.
The project is part of a broader effort to upgrade the course using sustainable means whenever possible. Improvements are planned for every hole and bunker on the course, including the creation of so-called “fuzzy bunkers” using native plants and grasses. The result will be a course that is both more attractive and more challenging, with a less manicured and wilder look evocative of traditional Scottish links courses.
Originally constructed in 1895, the Presidio Golf Course is the second oldest course west of the Mississippi. Long restricted to members of the military and the exclusive Presidio Golf Club, the course was opened to public play 1995.
The goats are supplied by California Grazing, a holistic land management company that provides brush and weed control through grazing.”
See you there!

Here are your new, three-wheeled Piaggios, you know, dall’Italia.
The first one’s kind of cute but the other one is pure evil – just look at it:

Oh, and the prices? About double what I expected.
Anyway, which would you prefer?

Barack Obama was there, sort of.

And the kids from UCSF Division of Clinical Pharmacology were looking for healthy smokers, something like this: Pharmacogenetics of Nicotine Metabolism in African-Americans. Make $300 by joining the study, why don’t you?
See you next year!
What are you waiting for? Make sure to spring for the automatic option – you’ve got to keep things classy.
Here’s what you’ll see tooling around San Francisco’s Mission District these days – an aging Mercedes Benz 300 SD sedan that’s been converted by Oakland’s Veg Rev to run on vegetable oil in a process called “vehicle fuel reassignment.”
So instead of inky diesel soot covering the back of this OM617 W126, we see vegetable oil. See the conversion process courtesy of this nifty video. (But just ignore a laughable MTV-style intro from the abysmal Current TV network.) The car shown can’t accelerate quickly, but in many ways is superior to (and costs about $115,000 less than) the quick, all-electric Tesla Roadster.
Of course the best way to spread the word about veggie power is to fashion a bumper sticker to make Toyota Prius owners feel bad:
