First glimpse...

Ok, so one recurring theme you are likely to see over the course of the next year is The Big Orange Bridge (aka The Golden Gate Bridge).

When I first moved to San Francisco, I was driving down this major street (I can't spell thoro-fare) that runs through the Sunset and Richmond Districts -- 19th Street. Between Quintara and Pacheco on this street, you get the very first glimpse of the towers of the BOB. The effect can actually be quite staggering -- you are still about 8 miles from the bridge at this point (see this link for a map of where this picture was taken). I think, that day in 2000, I actually fell in love with this city and that bridge.

I haven't said it yet, but I do intend on taking all of these pictures on the day they are posted. Although the pictures speaks to that moment in 2000, it was taken at about 4:50pm PST today, January 31, 2007.

Thomas bought a Z. Thomas' Z is orange. Thomas' Z is fast. Thomas gets to start paying his own insurance now. Thomas is about to wake up...

Sasha got me started...

My lovely, sweet daughter-in-law (yes, I'm going to call her that, ring or no ring) started one of these today. It looks interesting, so I'm going to try one myself.

Now, you'll have to understand -- I'm not often good at sticking to things, but I'm going to try -- try to post a pic a day.

Here is pic #1

We live in California -- land of wine and computers. This computer is one I just got back today after I broke it being an idiot.

Well, day 1 complete!
