    Both my sons have visited there and they enjoyed themselves so much. The older one has been back a couple of times and took his son there a couple of years ago.

    I guess we can all sing: "I left my heart in San Francisco......

    I was around 19--21 yrs old when my sister lived there.....oh, did I have some fun times running around "The City" (what we Californians call it)

    OK, so much for the ol' California Dreamin days

    Now, I enjoy riding around the city with Mr. Vonna.....it's so much fun having a native San Franciscan at the wheel, cause I personally hate driving downtown----it's funny, I can drive downtown L.A....no problem.....

    I am just bubbling over thinking about the possiblity of both boys living up there... (Vonna's happy dance)

    the oldest son is checking out Daly City, San Mateo, Pacifica (?), etc for housing possibilities..... If he gets the job, he doesn't want to be too far away from the city....he hates his hourly one way commute he now has to endure in San Diego--which by the way, I love San Diego too....

    Good news - I have a follow-up appointment with the pulmonary specialist who tried to get me to take Advair tomorrow. He doesn't know I never started. I'll be handing him the Time magazine article that says 4,000 of the 5,000 deaths from asthma last year were a result of the drug combination in Advair. I haven't used my inhaler since the end of October, so I still think he was way off the mark.
    Count your blessings!

    Good luck with that doctor's appointment, Gutmutter. Sometimes I think the patient really does know better than the doctor!

    We hired the BEST tour guide EVER while there. He took us places that the "regular" tourists don't really see much of. We, of course, went to China town, but he took us into the 'other" one that is mostly the chinese and not the touristy one. It was amazing. Much cooler than the touristy one. We also went to a Buddhist temple. SIMPLY BREATHTAKING AMAZING and unless you knew where to go, you'd never find it.
    He took us out to the Cliff House to see the Pacific and then over to the Marin headlands. We ate in Sausalito. OMG, it was good. We did a LOT with him and he was worth EVERY penny. He knew so much about the city and its history (he had been a history teacher). We saw where Coppolla ate while writing the screenplay for the Godfather. His pictures were on the wall with him hard at work on the script.
    We saw Robin Williams Mansion and Danielle Steele's. WOW!!!
    We went to some great little "pocket parks" that were beautiful.

    If anyone wants his name, pm me and I'll give it to you. He was slightly expensive, but for what we got, it was well worth it and I'd pay it again he was THAT good.

    I love San Diego, too. I even don't mind L.A., though I wouldn't want to live there (I don't think). But San Francisco and San Diego, I would move to in a heartbeat (if I had that kind of money).

    Gut, hope your appt. goes well today!!

    Myrosiedog sounds like you had a great time. I totally agree, a good tour guide is worth the money. Did you eat at the Cliff House? I haven't, I usually opted to eat at the coffee shop down the road ..lol. If you look below on the beach, you can see what's left of the old public swimming pool. Can't remember what it's called, but that is a beautiful area.

    When we're in the area, we usually hit some of the tourist spots....Golden Gate park, Japanese Tea Garden, De Young museum, ride the street cars, drive by Mr. Vonna's high school, the house he grew up in, get a super burrito at El Torro's, etc.....never gets old to me.

    My husband's father was a well known German Chef in San Francisco at Schroders. He passed away in the mid 1960's but Schroders is still open for business to this day. Wish Mr. Vonna's father would have passed down his cooking skills.. It didn't take long after we were married to realize he didn't have any cooking skills
