…Has It All

The stuff we sell is just the best
Passing all consumer test
Days of heaven nights of sin
Voodoo stick and sharks fin
When all around you seems like hell
Just one sip will make you well
Multipurpose in a jar
If you ain’t ill it’ll fix your car
In days of yore for all bad feelings
Washing socks and stripping ceilings
Nowadays its used medicinally
For all known human malady

It was really vile weather
When we got to tarred and feathered
You could hear the six guns sound
As they chased us out of town

Guaranteed don’t you know
Money back?
You’ll get a no!
It’s the one and only medicine show

Tower Cranes, Post Street – Or, How to Address a Group of Developers at a Political Fundraiser

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Oh, did I say “political fundraiser?” What I meant to say was event, or better yet, soiree. Never call a fundraiser a fundraiser – that’s the rule.

Anywho, what you do is start off by saying that the official bird of Frisco is no longer the California Quail, it’s the crane. The construction crane! (‘Cause you don’t know to call it a tower crane.) And then you laugh at your own “joke.” And then you blow a few dog whistles, you know, scary names like CHRIS DALY or AARON PESKIN afore you remind one and all how critical their “support” is to you and how, basically, all of us in this room are on the same team.

That’s how it works.

An Experiment in “Traffic Calming?” – Main Entrance of Japantown Parking Garage on Post Closed – “USE GEARY ENTRANCE”

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

This is how the Post Street side of our old-school, earthquake-unsafe Japan Center Garage looked the other day:

Not that I care, cause I don’t use this garage, but this will certainly affect traffic in the area, for better or worse.

And I’ll tell you, that sign looks professionally made, so I assume that this entrance will be shut in the future as well, perhaps on weekends or busy times? Just guessing here…

Lane-Splitting on the Wrong Side of the Yellow Line: How to Travel West on Eastbound Post Street – One Simple Trick!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Does this woman know what she’s doing? I can’t tell. Anyway, she was making her way to the intersection of Post and Webster by using a wrong-way lane. I’ve never seen this:

So, as a bike rider would feel free to pass cars queued up for a red light on the right side of the lane, she did so on the left side, except the left side in this case was eastbound Post. You can’t do that, Man!

If a car driver did this, s/he inevitably get stuck, but I guess with a scooter you can always nose your way back to where you belong with a quickness, is that the idea?

A dangerous game, IMO…

Now That It’s March, You Can Assume That the Blooming Cherry Trees You See Are Not Actually Plum – Oh, Here’s One

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

The fake cherry trees of January are now a deep purple, ’cause they’re plum trees.

That means that the cherry trees you see these days are real cherry.

Cherry Trees Bloomed in April When You Were Young, But Now You See Blooms All Over Frisco In January – Global Warming? NOPE!

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

Here’s your view, here’s what you can reliably see all over Frisco these days, typically starting in late January each and every year:

The problem with comparing these trees to the cherry trees of your youth is that you’re comparing apples to oranges, or IRL, ornamental plums (Prunus cerasifera, you know known and grown for it’s very early flowering) to cherries.

Thank you, drive through.
