The Terrible Zigûr will keep an “eye” on Mount Sutro, depicted at right, and maybe buy Twitter, who knows.
When asked for comment, Gorthaur the Cruel cryptically bellowed, “Bedrock, baby!”

Why I Favor UCSF Over the Mount Sutro “Cloud” “Forest” NIMBYs: #1 – UCSF Does Stuff, the NIMBYs Don’tMonday, March 4th, 2013

And what does “Para Bellum Verde” mean? Prepare for Green War? I think so.
Anyway, look for the unusual sign with the all-seeing eye and then enjoy.
Another great one from Shorpy.

This decently-sized fish just couldn’t get enough wonderful Rainbow Bread (can you see a slice getting devored on the left?) the other day at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park. Keep a look out for these critters when you rent a boat at Stow, just a stone’s throw away from the de Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences.
