Ah, the Notorious “GreenCarCo” of Washington State – It Used to Advertise on Bay Area Craigslist? – Hey, What’s Up with TDI Motors?Friday, October 24th, 2014
Well, this here’s a scene from Masonic in the 94117:
And I’m thinking, gee, what makes this VW “green?” Its diesel engine? Mmmm…
And what’s up with “TDI Motors?” What’s its relationship with Green Car Co of Washington State? Is this old wine in new bottles? IDK, but mmmm… And what’s the relationship with Volkswagen? And hey, isn’t TDI a trade name or a trademark or a service mark or something like that, you know, owned by the VW Group, or someplace like that?
1. TDI does not equal green.
2. If somebody calls me from out of state to do a car deal in craigslist SFBay territory, I don’t think the conversation is going to last long, JMO.
LONDON CALLING! 4/20 Day 2014 Coming This Easter Sunday – Haight-Ashbury Supervisor London Breed Wants a CrackdownWednesday, April 16th, 2014
Here’s what Annual 420 Day looks like, not too far from the Haight Street McDonalds on Stanyan.
That’s not fog, that’s a cloud of exhaled Mary Jane:
All right, Happy 420 Day 2014!
And now, let’s hear from London Breed:
“April 16, 2014
Sunday, April 20th Activities in Golden Gate Park and the Haight-Ashbury
This Sunday, April 20th, will see not only Easter celebrations throughout the City, but the likely return of an informal and unpermitted “4/20” gathering in Golden Gate Park and the Haight, which has caused significant problems in the community over the years and was particularly problematic last year.
Crowds strained police, Muni, and park resources, overwhelmed residential streets, and in several instances, damaged public and private property. Traffic came to a standstill as cars swarmed thearea. Garbage overflowed from curbside cans that proved unequal to the occasion. And on Sunday, 4/21, staff and volunteers with the Recreation and Parks Department had to laboriously collect over 10,000 pounds of litter left in the parks, not to mention the trash collected by the Department of Public Works from the upper Haight to Hayes Valley.
I am determined not to allow these impacts again this year. Over the past months, I have worked closely with the Police and Parks Departments, Mayor Lee’s office, and the MTA on a comprehensive city approach to this event. There is no sponsor for 4/20, no organizer to hold to account. But I want the community to know that their Supervisor and their government are doing everything possible to ensure a safe, peaceful April 20th for both visitors and residents.
San Francisco, as always, welcomes celebrants with open arms, but this Sunday there will be boundaries to keep the community safe, and there will be no tolerance for anyone using 4/20 as an excuse to harm our parks or neighborhoods.
There will be increased law enforcement presence both uniform and plainclothes—including Juvenile Probation Officers—in the Park, upper and lower Haight, and surrounding neighborhoods with a strict enforcement approach to all code violations.
Parking is very limited in the area, and there will be Parking Control Officers (PCOs) ticketing and/or towing vehicles parked illegally in any way, e.g. on lawns or in neighbors’ driveways. PCOs will also be deployed at busy intersections to keep traffic and transit moving.
Unpermitted booths and concessions in the Parks will not be allowed. Such enterprises will be immediately cited and removed.
Traffic control officers, SFPD, and Muni will be on hand in the afternoon to help move visitors out of the neighborhoods quickly and safely. Muni will reroute buses off Haight Street between Stanyan and Masonic to avoid delays.
If our neighborhoods and parks are expected to continue hosting a large gathering, without an organizer or any resources beyond those provided by the taxpayer, we must all be vigilant in ensuring the event is safe, clean, and responsible.

$3200 Crib Set Rendered Unsellable by the Feds – Can You Sell Drop Side Cribs on Craigslist Anymore? No, Hell NoFriday, April 26th, 2013
Here you go, here’s an expensive crib set what includes a crib with a drop side (which means it slides up and down) which you can’t sell in the United States anymore.
But can you sell it used on Craigslist? No. Hell no.
Loophole alert: Are you allowed to sell this crib not as a crib but as a convertible child’s bed?
Loophole alert: Are you allowed to throw away the drop side and sell the crib as a daybed, thusly?
“Beautiful, high quality solid wood Morigeau-Lepine crib converted to toddler day bed. Originally purchased for 850.00. Attached picture is of original drop-side crib which is now banned in the U.S. Drop side piece is not included in this sale to avoid possible danger.”
I don’t know. Maybe.
But what I do know is that you can’t sell drop side cribs no mo, even on Craigslist.
And yet people try to do that on Craigslist each and every day.
Just saying, ma’am.
What should you buy instead? How about a Sniglar* from IKEA? It costs just $69 (and it certainly looks like it costs just $69.)
And it will not impress any rich ladies in Russian Hill or anywhere else.
But, the Sniglar, she is legal, and that’s the thing.
Sorry for the hassle. Thank you, drive through.

Where Will YOU Be on 420 Day? In Golden Gate Park or at 420 Day Street in Noe Valley? Plus, an Awesome Vapor Cloud PhotoFriday, April 19th, 2013
Golden Gate Park be getting all crowded these days on annual 420 Day, so why not head on down to Noe Valley and light up at 4:20 PM at 420 Day Street instead?
The neighbors will welcome you interloping potheads with open arms. I’m sure!
Actually, Noe Valley is the locus of NIMBY – it’s filled with asshole millionaire homeowners and concomitant neighbor feuding.
Here it is, 420 Day, or close enough. Check out the comically large Planning Commission NOTICE OF HEARING notice on the front gate and the comically small recycling bin out front. (No black garbage can? A point of pride, I’m sure)
