Good News, Everybody! That “$3 Million Farmhouse” at 10th and Balboa Sold for LESS Than Asking Price in 2014

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Oh, wait a sec, maybe that’s BAD news – it depends on who you are.

Anyway, here’s proof that it’s possible to buy a place in Frisco for less than asking price in the Year Of Our Lord 2014:

One of the asking prices was the “lucky” number of $2,888,888.88, IIRC.

Changes are Coming to Sunset Boulevard Monday: “NEW SIGNALS TO BE ACTIVATED 7/28/2014″ – Near Wawona and Yorba

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Here are what these signs look like on Sunset Boulevard way out there in the Parkside / Sunset part of outer San Francisco County:

After the recent deaths in this area, SFGov appears to be highly motivated to make changes.

The signage around here is still a fucking mess, but one assumes that some of the older signals that are there might now be coming down this weekend when the new signals get turned on.

Here’s the tunnel view heading north as it stands now – how many signs and lights and banners has SFGov put up for drivers to look at here? I’m counting about three dozen and, actually, drivers can see even more further to the left and right of this scene, including an SFPD vehicle seemingly permanently parked on Yorba specifically for you bad drivers to see and react to.

IMO, the modified pedestrian-activated HAWK light experiment, signals that would flash yellow but never actually go red to stop traffic, is a massive failure.

IMO, SFGov continues to expect waaaaaay too much from its drivers (particularly elderly drivers, particularly those who shouldn’t be driving anymore) and its pedestrians (particularly elderly pedestrians).

IMO.

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Thusly. Strike a pose, mate: 

Click to expand, Gov’ner. Right!

Of course this shot was from back in the day, from back before the Black Paint Attack of 2013, which damaged the appearance of the famously peaceful heart doctor.

But a genuine 2010 Banksy is a genuine 2010 Banksy, right? So check it out the next time you’re on Eddy Grant Avenue – it’s electric!

Here’s your Map, from all the way back in 2011. Can you spot the Banksy

Sure you can!
