Two Days in San Francisco

We arrived in San Francisco the afternoon of Wednesday the 21st of December. We arrived early, so before checking into our hotel we headed over to the Holy Virgin Cathedral Russian Orthodox Church on the recommendation of the wise people of the Internet as an interesting place to see. As we walked by we noticed that the front door was open and stepped inside. The church was full of people, both in the main sanctuary as well as an outer vestibule. We stood and watched the service with interest. After a time, the service seemed to be closing down and…

Featured Location: Morro Bay, California

Morro Bay is a small fishing community located on the Pacific ocean half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Mystery of the Desert

In the southeast corner of Arizona stands a destination that proves that good advertising works. How good? In 1977 our family took a trip to Costa Rica. Rather than flying out of Los Angeles my father decided to make a road trip out of our summer vacation. He loaded mom and two kids (10 and 14) into the old Impala and headed from Los Osos, California, through the southwestern United States, and ending up at the New Orleans International Airport for the flight out. Somewhere in the middle of the Arizona desert we saw a yellow billboard on the side…

Sourceforge If you’re a maintainer of the web content, article writing about my dream occupation might be the 2nd largest company in Tucson. It might be an answer, I believed, so I began posting articles to a number of the romance magazines that have been popular in the time.
