Toaster Oven

Had lunch today with a frined at Toaster Oven. Vintage toasters are mounted on the brick walls and, yes, the sandwiches are toasted. Reminds me of the time I was at Muffin Treat near Vacaville. My friend asked the waitress if he could get toast instead of a muffin to which she replied, "If you wanted toast you should have gone to Toast Treat." The attached bar of the aforesaid restaurant was called the Moon Room Lounge. Tell us your horror/delight stories about restaurants betw S.F. and Sacramento or anywhere "On the Road."

Origin of the Giant Sundial Society

Here's what someone posted on Yelp! about San Francisco's Giant Sundial: "sundial is actuallly pretty cool because it is acurate in telling the time=) we had a picnic on the benches today with our pb&j sandwiches. And with the sun shining on our backs, it became a perfect day!

A certain heart-melting space whistle

Now, the after logo certain reminds us of our favorite two-person one-man band that sound like a "heart-melting space whistle." I think it would make wonderful music for a silent film. Fun, yes, fun.

It's been so long since I visited Pere-Lachaise cemetery I was glad that it can be done virtually on line. I've added a link to P-L from this site and probably some directions are in order because you wouldn't want directions to be out of order. First type the name you want in the search box. Par example, Piaf. Next you have to click on the name "Piaf" because there might be more than one little sparrow in the cemetery (yeah, right). But don't forget this step. A little cross will flash on the map. Click on the cross and voila! You can also just move your mouse over the map to get a mouseover as to who is buried there.
