New Year in Another City

After flying up, grabbing BART, walking to the downtown hotel my wife booked, and eating room service, I can finally post this. The family and I are here in San Francisco. I'm here for work (Macworld Conference and Expo, which starts on the 5th), but my wife wanted us to come up early and greet the new year in the city by the bay.

It's nice to come back up to this NoCal area. They are talking about rain tomorrow here, but the rest of weekend looks good, weather-wise (though really cool). The family will stay with me until Monday, then I'm on my own with the conference. Anyway, it's nice being here and into a new year--really looking forward to January 20th. I really want to see the end of the Bush-Cheney era and the start of Obama's presidency.

Here's wishing everyone a Happy New Year.


  1. I am envious. I've wanted to visit San Francisco ever since seeing an episode of Remington Steele that was shot there.

  2. Yes, Baghdad by the Bay is a great city to visit. Lots of sites to see and things to do. But, it's cool temps are not preferred (by me anyway). Even though Twain really didn't say it, The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco quote is quite true. First time I ever visited this city was decades ago in August--and I didn't bring enough layers!

  3. I have heard that about SF, that it's always colder than you think it will be. As long as it isn't snow and ice though, I'm good with it.
