Sri Rathayatra Festival, the One with the Huge Chariots, Goes Down in Golden Gate Park

Monday, August 9th, 2010

The 44th Annual Festival of the Chariots went down over the weekend down over in Golden Gate Park.  

As you might expect, the Richmond District Blog has all the deets with colorful photos

The Krishnas came out in force…

…from all over:

And everyone was invited to the “FREE FEAST,” of sorts:

This was the race course:

And here are all the deets:

See you next year!

This Giant C5 Galaxy is the Plane that Just Delivered Obama’s Limo to SFO

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

I was headed on down to SiliValley on bidness yesterday and what did I see but this huge C5 Galaxyheading north out of San Francisco International. At first I thought it was an old C141 Starlifter, but no, upon further review, it appears to be a C5 of some sort. Now, I’ve seen military aircraft at Honolulu International HNL (in Hawaii of course, where you can’t drive to the Costco without getting intermixed with active duty military humvees), but never at SFO.

Anyway, you can’t have an Air Force One without a cargo plane or two to come with, right?

Here’s the outside of the flying presidential garage, just after takeoff. It’s a living:

The T-tail is your clue that this isn’t a regular old Boeing or Airbus jumbo. Click to expand

And this is what it looks like from the inside.

Look for photos of Obama’s visit on SFist.com – they’ll be sure to have some shots and reports posted in a timely fashion.

Bauer’s Limosuine: How Am I Driving? Not So Hot, Actually

Friday, July 10th, 2009

In a move redolent of Michael Schumacher’s opening lap at the 2002 Malaysian Grand Prix, this Bauer’s Worldwide Intelligent Transportation Executive Shuttle managed to cross three lanes of traffic on the 101 to cut off this poor San Francisco taxi driver.  

Perhaps Bauers’ drivers get paid by the mile?

And are these slogans really their intellektual propertah?

“Saving the Earth 1 mile at a time”

“Be Clean, Go Green”

Oh dear. Be sure to check out their cheesy website, complete with polar bears, Emperor penguins, and, of course,  Hummer H2 stretch limos.

And Bauer, try to use your signals when you’re changing three lanes at a time, when you’re speeding. You don’t want to give the NIMBYs any more ammo, right?
