Love from Sausalito

On my way to the ferry and work on this beautiful Monday morning. A snapshot of Princess street leading to the main street Bridgeway of our beloved Sausalito.

Full yellow jacket

Hmm... we've got yellow jackets on our favorite hiking trail. Well I'm not gonna stir them up. But I'm not so sure about all the ball crazy kids and dog walkers...

Welcome to California

We're gonna get fried, literally. Intense heat is building up over us...

Everyday life

Me waiting for the bus after work. Yes, SF is full of everyday blues. Big time.

SF subway ad of the week

ThredUp is endorsing a lifestyle blogger to come up with a statement that is so generic it makes you blush under your toe nails. This is the hometown of ingenuity, originality and pride, dammit!

Happy Father's Day, Rick!

"Simplicity is a virtue", said Richard when we presented our lasagna. And it was magnificent in its simplicity. In short: a success. We had the best Father's Day dinner ever. Perfect on a hot day like this.

Ashbury Heights, San Francisco, CA

The house right across the street from where Jason and Jill live is such a crib!


Human nature

Yes, that's right. I think this is funny. Because it actually strikes a truth for once (about us humans - not the climate!).

Norman's back

Norman and Hideo are back. But is that PT hanging in the umbilical cord *cough*

Got a quarter, bro?

Gotta love these ancient vintage phone booths in the SF subway. Feels like you're still in the 80's.

North Beach Festival

Good 'ol North Beach Festival. The 62nd. A fun mix for everyone in such a great neighborhood.

Taking the Muni 6 to Jake from Ferry Plaza. One thing: Never ride a bus on a hot day. Horrible!

We never get tired of our views. This one is facing north-east over Richardson Bay and Tiburon.

Election Day, folks!

Presidential Primary Election Day is here! Do you know your polling place? Click the picture to find out. Do your duty!


Yet another festival

Union street festival is fun, but my personal favorite is the North Beach Festival. Ever since I first strolled along SF streets back in 2009 I have seriously fallen in love with this neighborhood. It's San Francisco quantified. See you there on Saturday!

Sunday festival stroll

We went to the festival on Sunday only. And it looked the same, the usual... a lot of things to see, hear, smell and taste. That's short for Union Street Festival.

Future proof living

I took the liberty of tagging along Sarah on one of her short working trips to Mexico a few days ago. This is how people live in Puente La Joya, Tijuana. Wonder if there's wifi?


6.01.2016

40th time around

Next weekend is the Union Street Festival. A lot of people, alot of music and a lot of food. Did I forget something, honey? Yes, a lot of San Francisco, of course. Call us all of you who read this and we can meet up!

The City in the summer haze

Through one of our oldest garden trees downtown San Francisco is visible. Awesome.

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day dear friends! We just finished our breakfast and are preparing for a relaxed holiday. Later this evening we are invited to Sarah's dad Richard for a dinner. It's actually catering but when my dear father in law invites us for dinner it's so sweet!!!


5.27.2016

Summer pattern

Memorial weekend coming up and so does the heat. Sarah comes back from Chicago on Sunday and she wants to go to Livermore to get some of her off season stuff, as she calls it. Livermore + heat = no fun...

Work coming up...

After the water leak in our neighbor's garage in early March we have assessed the condition of our own (they are built in a set of three) and found it in need of new pipes. Hmm... guess we'll have ourselves a chance to clean out our extremely cosy garage, honey.

We all leave our hearts in San Francisco

We all know there are big plans for the man made Treasure Island, the biggest yet in San Francisco. But now also George Lucas is chiming in on it. His museum first "went" to Chicago after leaving the Presidio, but there's a law in nature that says what's once been to San Francisco always returns. Go Lucas, go!


5.14.2016

Love you honey

San Francisco is the greatest city on earth. We all know that. But it's also getting better and better for bees (!). Check out the video for yet another example of the sustainable and progressive insights nurtured by this great city.

Blondie's down

Blondie's pizza, the pizza-by-the-slice joint everyone coming to San Francisco at least passes by on Powell has been shut down due to "severe cockroach infestation". Now let me see... what was their best topping...


5.07.2016

What has "an irresponsible amount of performance"?

The new Nvidia GTX 1080. It's faster than two 980 in SLI and a beast of a card. Maxwell is thus being outdated and Pascal is the new King. No third party benchmarks have been done yet so stay tuned. The GTX 1080 will be out on May 27th. And it will break the bank. Big time.


5.04.2016

How good is it? [update: It's really good!]

Today, May 5th at 12:01 am PT/03:01 ET the Uncharted 4 embargo is being lifted. So expect reviews to pop up out there.

[update] And here are a few of them:


4.28.2016

No way

Maxing out GTA V in 4K with 3 (!) Nvidia 980 cards sounds promising, right? Unfortunately the vram doesn't stack so you'll be sitting in front of your monitor with an average framerate of 6.2. Yep, so much for your expensive powerhorse. Check out some other framerate guzzlers HERE.


4.24.2016

The Heart of San Francisco

Sarah's friend Brooke works at The San Francisco SPCA. Check out this cute video.

4.21.2016

Never ending beauty

Sunset over San Francisco. One of the many great pics taken from Jake's drone.

6 million reasons to live in the Bay Area - or not?

Guess how much moolah you need to be considered "wealthy" in the Bay Area? Put down you coffee cup first. $6 million. Yep. And $1 million to be considered "comfortable". You've got the figures right HERE if you want to know more. Craazee!

Ash & Embers

The most brilliant game series of all time unveils it's 3rd installment today. Say goodbye to work, family and sleep. Or simply don't touch the game at all. Because you WILL be caught in its grip if you press that button: DARK SOULS III. Whatever your decision, do watch the beautiful launch trailer below:

4.08.2016

I agree...

I can't help it. I have to post this. It's hilarious. Period.

4.07.2016

Now get on with the tracks as well

The new BART railcars were showcased last Wednesday in Hayward. They're sleekier and have more doors and the system map will be shown on a monitor instead of a poster. The old cars have more or less looked the same since 1972 so it's about time the Bay Area commuters get to ride in a more future proof train set. Let's hope the agency will step up the cleaning as well. How many of us have been able to look out the windows without paying sad attention to the dirty dirty panes? Never have I seen clean windows on a BART car. Ever.


4.05.2016

Strong finish

With a metascore of 90 the last installment (as of now) of the highly praised Dark Souls series makes a strong finish. Check out some of the reviews below.

You never grow up in San Francisco

An Easter Sunday tradition in San Francisco is the Bring Your Own Big Wheel Race. It started in 2001 on Lombard street ("the crookedest street in the world") but moved to Potrero Hill and Vermont street.

Only in San Francisco...

... where reality and fantasy come together can you see something like this. Enjoy!

Happy Easter

A very Happy Easter to all our friends in the US, France, Sweden, Japan, Germany, China, UK, Holland, Hungary, Spain, Mexico, Canada, India, Egypt, Italy and... did I leave anyone out, Sarah?

Pic of love

Jake keeps on chucking me awesome drone pics. This is my current favorite: Sunset over the Marin Headlands. Being struck by awe is an understatement.

Let's have a look at the menu, shall we?

Sarah took this cool pic downtown SF today. This is sooo San Francisco!

This is something new folks

OK guys. Ever wondered how a First Person Action Movie would look like? That is, a movie shot like an FPS video game. Well Hardcore Henry is exactly that. Take a look at the trailer below. You better brace yourself for this will probably be the ride of your life!

3.05.2016

A Robotic Rights Act, anyone?

In 2009 I saw a video from Boston Dynamics with BigDog, a robot walking through snow and slippery icy roads. This is their more humanesque version of it - Atlas. And yes, it's still just as hilarious when it almost falls over because of cyberbullying or obstacles!


3.04.2016

Feeling lost in The Sky?

So, what are you gonna be doing in No Man's Sky? There are 18,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets in the game. How is it meant to be played? Gamespot has some answers.
