Happy Valentine's Day:

     CHOCOLATES! My very own 2-pound box of CHOCOLATES. What a glorious day, set aside specially to stuff truffles in my mouth without guilt. Add a funny card, maybe a Mexican meal out, and I'm a deliriously happy camper. What could be easier and more satisfying? No male half of the equation has to work too hard to earn big points and, yes, big scrumptious smiles, etc.

Happy New Year:

Yeah, so it's a little late, but get into the rhythm with me -- it's now 2014 and we're all getting used to writing it. Fact is, I always felt uncomfortable writing 2013, like it was a Friday and bad luck was always lurking around the corner, like ladders lying in wait, maybe one of them evil, or a really evil mirror poised to smash down on your head.

Vol. 66 Number 202

It's not yet the Night Before Christmas, but it'll be here before you know it. Picture yourself putting together a bicycle with  instructions translated from Mongolian, hoping your husband really wears a size 12 running shoe (they're really hot and you got them on sale and no returns), praying your kid won't grow another size since you snagged the last 4 Tall red coat from Pottery Barn Kids (yep, on sale and you can't return it) and knowing to your feet that the clever cat  toys you got for their stockings will bring on cat sneers and disinterest and you'll be putting them out again next Christmas (because cat toys are never on sale) and finally, praying the expensive perfume you got your sister won't turn to vinegar as it spends three days at the bottom of a pile of boxes in a warehouse in South Florida, without air conditioning.

Happy Thanksgiving:

What do you think if we simply have Hallothanksmas? That way we could put all the decorations up at once and leave them there for three months. Picture my vulture Brett next to Pilgrim family, the Jawarskys, all sitting in the Thanksgiving hay wagon, parked in front of a gorgeous Christmas Tree with owls on it. What a wonderful image! Okay, write your congressperson, let's make this happen. Since new legislation takes time, do not despair. I believe there are 3, count them, 3, football games on Thanksgiving day and evening, maybe even a late show, so hmm, what's not to like here? Gotta think about this some more. You may weigh in while chowing down homemade cranberry sauce.

Happy Halloween:

If you're cold blooded, like moi, then you're not particularly happy about the unacceptable temperatures  in San Francisco. It's now been 6 -- count them -- 6 straight weeks of warm gorgeous weather that's keeping everyone, locals and tourists, in shorts, flip flops and big smiles.  Alas, for the cold blooded among us (who are not addicted to blood except maybe on Halloween), I feel strongly this is meteorological discrimination and thus sucketh greatly. After all, this is San Francisco -- usually the land of lovely cold fog billowing through the Golden Gate throughout the summer. But no, this Indian Summer simply won't go away,  so what's a poor cold blooded, non-vampire to do? If you answer, Stop being an idiot, I will not take it under advisement, so be nice and commiserate even though you're probably smirking.

Last month to have crazy vacation fun with your family. School will be starting soon (and all you parents are doubtless very thrilled about this, counting down the days, excited to buy supplies at Target.) About this last fun gasp, though, I recommend you don't go to Paris since for the entire month of August, the French escape the city to go who knows where for their own holiday.
(They probably go to the south of France because everyone in Cannes or Nice are perpetually on vacation.)

Hi Everyone:

Believe it, it's the fricking middle of the sixth month which makes it smack in the middle of the year and nearly the middle of the decade. Phew.

June 2nd - 9th: The Outer Banks, North Caroline (Duck, to be specific) included  38 large and six small, both large and small were well behaved, happy, always hungry, always fed incredibly well, a different family cooking every night, ranging from Brit Yorkshire pudding to Thanksgiving turkey and dressing, to BBQ pork ribs, pulled pork and chicken,  to good old fashioned dogs and burgers to -- well, well, my brain just froze through visualization gluttony.

Hi Everyone:

America's Cup sailboats are strutting their stuff right in front of my house, (well, in the water right in front of my house) getting ready for the big races held throughout the summer and into early September here on San Francisco Bay.
