  Isaac and Eugenia play basketball on their school playground. Lots of enthusiasm all around. It's amazing what a well-stocked school sports program can do!

  I've been spending a lot of time at Le Bon Port Café in the Castro. Here's a panorama, looking out from the back towards Castro Street. They were having issues with their Wi-Fi, mostly due from 2wire and AT&T being unable to figure out a way of getting the latest drivers to customers. What, you say, most places happily provide their drivers freely on the Internet? Yep, but not these two titans of stupidity.

  At the Golden Gate Model Railroad Club, at the Randall Museum, Lila and Rose are busily working on scenery, bringing it into character for faux cities in California's central valley.

  It's everyone's first look at the result of this semester's Beautification Day; the heavy yellow-orange stripe around the school with the rainbow is new, and much more that doesn't appear in this photo.

  It's Purim at the kids' Hebrew School. Here the audience, at right, watches the tradition remembrance play, at left, put on by the older kids.


With a little work by Isaac and me, the video is running, and everyone stops to watch some appropriate stuff on the big screen.


Lila is dressed up as a little princess; Isaac is just super(kid).

Purim: kids dressed up

The kids some games. Here Lila is playing a toss game; the kids at the back are doing some bowling game.

We had down the peninsula to see European 'HO' trains at the Heller Aviation Museum, in San Mateo. Here are some Swiss trolleys, complete with working pantograph. Some of the trains have interior lighting and people; very, very cool!

Here's Isaac checking out the European train layout while Dieter goes off to fix a problem. They're only at the Heller for a few weekends this year and surely we'll be back when they return.

John, of the GGMRC, has invited us over to his place to check out his train layout. Isaac loves it! We wind up buying those trains that he's playing with, the Daylighter.

  We're here at the GGMRC, looking at a train's eye-view of the track.

It turns out that it's Isaac driving that train; the controller is in his hand.

It's a full moon over San Francisco. It looked better in person.

  Can you see the sparkles in Isaac's brand-new retainer? The cool neon-green plastic is pretty cool.

  Pamela and Alan have come to visit from Roswell, NM, and we celebrate! Pamela did most of the catering, picking the cake and a bunch of cookies. The kids intently watch the cutting...

  We celebrate Dziadziu's birthday at the Taipei Restaurant, on Ocean Avenue. (The crispy duck is a favorite.) You can see cousin Ziggy at left, and Isaac holding new cousin Analie. That's Felicia with the ponytail.

Dziadziu's birthday

Dziadziu shows off one of his gifts, a frame with all four grand-kids pictured. Felica rules! It's Lila's turn with Analie while the boys compare Pokemon cards.

The restaurant staff sings Happy Birthday to Dziadziu (in English; I was hoping for Cantonese).

Lila practices her outside axe kick. Fearsome. It won't be long until we're taking the red-black belt test.
