  On the kids' school's upper balcony, from left: Isaac, Lila, Alejandro, and Millie. Yeah, they're throwing leaves and tree nuts down on the rest of us.

The last Site Council meeting of this year, chaired by Principal Willem Vroegh. He brought grapes, brie, and crackers. Mmmmmmm. Let's take a meeting :-)

Site Council

Last night a gas tanker on The Maze crashed into an abutment on the 580 connector to the Bay Bridge, melting two units of the roadway. You'll understand why I'm sharing this info...

Chronicle shows the meltdown

...once you hear that MUNI and BART switched to free service to lure commuters off the roads. So we had to take advantage of the free time on the rails. After school, after Hapkido, after all the homework was done we headed down into Castro station to start a short trip.

post meltdown free mass transit

We took MUNI downtown, where we switched to BART. Our general rule, when riding the rails for fun (especially when we need to get the kids into bed at some reasonable hour), is that we take whatever train arrives first. So off to the airport we headed, where we had dinner, took the AirTrain all over, and headed back. Rose couldn't stay awake.

Kudos to MUNI for taking advantage of the rollout of the new 'T' line to re-do all the signage. I think they did an excellent job. Now, at a glance, one can see the terminus of each line, the connections between lines, etc. Much better than the old version.

They also add station name signs and pointers to the boarding zones all over the place, which is such a fantastic improvement, especially for visitors to our fair city.

  Mr. Valero was in quite the mood today. Instead of the more canonical techniques we got "things you can't do while sparring." What I remember most is the motion described as "a pitcher throwing a baseball", a way to throw a punch over an opponent's high block. It was exhausting, but fun. Thanks, Mr. V!
