Are you potent enough, Mr. Trump?

Hey Mr. Trump, if you wanna make America great again you've got to take care of other pressing matters first.

A Gandalf in need of a beard trimming

Everytime I see the palm tree outside Jason's and Jill's house I think of calling the barbershop. This guy is in serious need of a shave.

Steve's zombie porch lamp

Gotta love the lamp on Steve's porch in the Marina. It's like straight out of a Romero movie.

Natural light

Much of the "midsection" of our house is still intact 1970's. This is where the natural light is most playful and you can read without a lamp most part of the year.

Pay attention to life, folks

Everyone is playing Pokémon Go right now. It's so annoying...



If you're from a country where the letter ä is part of the alphabet the ads from Häagen-Dazs are funny. "Äah!" is supposed to be a universal word for "indulgence" says the ice cream producer. It is actually something that reminds of "yuck" or "eew!" if you're Swedish.

Whales in the Bay

San Francisco is awesome. Even the whales come to tell us they want to join the praise :-)

Late lunch

Usually I don't eat pizza for lunch, but today I'll be working late. So pizza it is!

Ferry catching

During the tourist season every embarking procedure takes forever, especially with all the bikers.

Remember we're all tied together

On my Friday off I went for the 3-mile walk around the reservoir. The Park Ranger had the flag flown at half staff in honor of the victims of the Dallas shooting.

Richmond of San Francisco

San Francisco is a sprawling city. This is a wide shot of Richmond district of San Francisco taken from Jake's drone.


Pho you! I want my joint back!

One of my favorite veggie restaurants in Chinatown closed for good in January. Now there's some Vietnamese eatery at the location. Never checked it out as it's not serving my kind of nourishment.


Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July from the Greatest City on Earth!


Never rush a Sunday dinner

Is she enjoying the food or the conversation? You can never really tell...

Went Indian today

Naan & Curry serves pretty good lunch platters. And to my knowledge they are the only one making Palak Paneer spicy by default.

From iPad



Spicy noodle soup. I break into sweat everytime!

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.

Last community BBQ before the 4th of July holidays

Community bbq today. And half of that stuff is mine. Guess which items?

Hot weather - hot food

Fried jalapeno tofu. Yummi!

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!).


If we want it, it's over

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!

Pay per view

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?


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!!!


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...


One of a kind... kinda

Everyone who can see our house from here please raise your hand!

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!


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...


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.


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:


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.


The Heart of San Francisco

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


Never ending beauty

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!
