San Francisco The manifestation of the Dream

Herve has had a dream of working in one of the Hightech companies in Silicon Valley. We both loved San Francisco when we travelled there in 2015 with the girls. The journey to get here has been a long and challenging one in many ways. The interview proces

United’s Plan to Put New Business Class Seats in 787s Which Fly Their Longest Routes

United made a splash introducing its new business class product two and a half years ago. Boeing 787-9s though operate United's longest haul flights, so it's appalling they have the airline's old business class product — the same old seats running San Franciso – Newark fly San Francisco – Singapore. They were delivered with old seats, and to date United had not even announced a plan to ever put new seats in them. Continue reading United’s Plan to Put New Business Class Seats in 787s Which Fly...

US cities with the most coffee shops

When it comes to a city’s coffee options, more is always better than fewer. Because while you can count on a Starbucks on every corner, you can also count on the worn-out playlist of the same coffee every time. A wide range of options is part of what makes the best coffee cities in the world, well, the best coffee cities. Variety is what keeps our caffeine addiction interesting. While searching for the best places for coffee lovers to live, ApartmentGuide recently took a look at the US cities...

Peace, Love, and Avocado for All

San Francisco is home to the original hippie, the flower child borne of the 1967 Summer of Love, though only faint traces of the counter culture movement remain today. Largely replaced by tech workers with smartphones in their pockets rather than floral ornaments in their hair, it disappoints me to no end that we don’t even have an outpost of Flower Child out in the bay area. Had it not been for a trip out to Austin, TX, I never would have even known of the peaceable chain. During my whirlwind f...

California camping [4]

This will be the last installment of this mini series from October 2002. We left Death Valley and headed even further south, through the Mojave Desert and on to Salton City and Borrego Springs. We had a campsite reserved in the Anza-Borrego State Park. Again, there were very few campers around and we had a great choice of site. The rustic shade shelter and stone picnic table at our site, with the Jeep and Collette, of course. Some of the sites available included beautiful stone shelters with l...

Cassis Home Renovation Project

    If I did not have such a great team to work with I would never agree to step in and project manage such an undertaken of Cassis Home. Plus if Ching and Gary were not good friends of mine and if they weren't one hundred percent behind every decision I make I would never be doing this. But since the "Team" is behind me and creativity is free rein this is one of the best projects, that am lucky and happy to be part of it.  What I mean is that this apartment was good enough, it was livable but ...

Travel: Largest cruise ship ever to be based year-round in Southern California coming to Long Beach

Come December, Southern California cruisers will say “ahoy” to the new 4,000-passenger Carnival Panorama, currently being built at the same Italian shipyard where the ship it’s replacing, the 3,100-passenger Carnival Splendor, was constructed a decade ago. Just months away from a sea test at the Fincantieri shipyard near Venice, Italy, the Panorama is the third vessel in Carnival’s Vista Class, following the 2-year-old Carnival Vista and 9-month-old Carnival Horizon.

California camping [2]

Just a few more shots of our first day out on this trip back in 2002. The car is my 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport. It was a great vehicle. I was commuting in it at first, but after I got the job in the city I used the subway to go back and forth to work. The car became our weekend errand and recreational vehicle. The '92 Jeep with its roof rack and "basket case." I fitted the Jeep with a roof rack for bikes, then I got an attachment for the rack called "the basket case," or something funny like tha...

California camping [1]

Set the WABAC machine to October 2002. Ken and I took a camping trip through eastern California. We left San Francisco and headed up and over the Sierra Nevada mountains to our first destination on the eastern side, a campground near Twin Lakes. At some point, we stopped for lunch. Then, as we climbed up over the Sonora Pass, it started to snow. Not a great beginning, but it wasn't a big storm and we made it through. It started snowing as we drove over the mountains. This is a car on the road ...

The healthiest countries to move to

Being healthier is one of the most popular of New Year’s resolutions. For some, this may include making big life changes — like moving — that make it easier to get and stay healthy. And healthy places aren’t just those with lots of gyms and juice bars. Places to make lifestyle changes are those that share a worldview of health — where physical health is important but so are access to outdoor activities, mental health, low-stress levels, fresh food, quality healthcare, and strong, supportive ...

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S10 February 20 in San Francisco

CES has never been much of a mobile show for Samsung — not with Mobile World Congress a little over a month away. But the company did use its big platform this week to announce the announcement of its next flagship smartphone. Turns out the Samsung’s not unveiling the Galaxy S10 in Barcelona, either. In fact, the handset will actually make its debut a week before Barcelona’s big mobile show at a standalone Unpacked event in San Francisco. So thanks, Samsung, for those extra frequent flier mi...

Throwback Thursday

Ken found some old photos on one of his disk drives the other day. I had forgotten about them. Some were photos that I took while Ken was away from home, using one of his digital cameras. These two were taken in September of 2002. We were still living in California. I drove up to Auburn from San Francisco to see our friend Sue, and our dog Collette came with me, of course. We visited a couple of wineries near Sue's house there. Me and Collette, happy in the grass. She was a great dog! She was ...

US cycling team does Tour du Rwanda

Passion can overcome nearly any obstacle. Coupled with hard work and perseverance, it can even take you around the world.

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

Run an inn on an island in San Fran

If your new year’s resolution is to spend less time online or in front of the TV, taking this job might be the perfect way to do it. The keepers of the East Brother Light Station, on a small island off the coast of San Francisco, are looking for a replacement to run the island’s lighthouse and inn. “As much as we would like to call ourselves lighthouse keepers, that’s definitely not in our duties out here,” said Jillian Meeker, who runs the property with Che Rodgers. “We’re responsible for ru...

Political ‘fixer’ Bradley Tusk seeks $70M for Tusk Ventures’ sophomore fund

Longtime political operative Bradley Tusk got his start in Silicon Valley in 2011, when a little-known founder of a transportation startup requested his help surmounting regulatory barriers. That founder, Travis Kalanick, couldn’t afford Tusk’s $25,000 fee, so Tusk agreed to accept half of his payment in equity. As you can imagine, that deal worked out pretty well for Tusk, whose shares in Uber are now said to be worth $100 million. Tusk (pictured) spent several years advising Uber’s expan...

20 Tips for Traveling Alone for the First Time

Is this the year you will finally take that first solo trip? I was probably like you 12 years ago obsessing on how I was more intimidated than excited about traveling alone for the first time. In 2006 I left my corporate career to take a career break and travel around the world for a year primarily solo. I had never undertaken anything like this before and wasn’t an experienced traveler. The fear of traveling alone for the first time poured out of me in the form of tears. As my sister left me in...

Scenic train rides to ski resorts

Ski vacations truly are the antidote to the post-holiday winter blahs. But sometimes getting to said ski vacations involves inching your way up an icy, two-lane highway, spending more time crammed in your car than speeding down a mountain. Much like traversing cities, trains help people avoid the pain of traffic en route to their ski destinations. Whether day trips near American metros like Denver or week-long excursions through foreign terrain in, say, Switzerland, taking a train to the moun...

Best month for cheap flights

Traditionally, January is the epitome of winter misery. The bright lights and festive music of Christmas have all come down, and all you’re left with are 4:00 PM sunsets and an ice scraper to keep you warm. Tack that on to credit card bills from the holidays that literally make you avoid opening your mailbox, and it’s time for a little escape from reality. You shouldn’t let those astounding holiday bills keep you from it, either. Not that we’re preaching financial irresponsibility, but accord...
