"Well, good luck to you.  $30--$40 for slacks, sorry, but that train left years ago (At least in the part of the country where I live, even khakis [one step up from jeans khakis] start, off sale, at the high end of your total price range.)"

The Beacon is Lit.

Posted on December 8, 2010 at 1:32am 0 Comments

It's Pearl Harbor Day.

On the evening of December 7, 1941, the aircraft navigation beacon on top of Mt. Diablo, east of San Francisco, CA was not lit for the first time since 1928.

The rotating beacon has a visual range of some 200 miles, well within the flight range of 1941 carrier based bombers, and it was feared that Japanese would use the beacon to bomb the San Francisco area.

The beacon was not relit until December 7, 1964.

It will be lit…

Culmination Day.

Almost unbelievable! Our daughter just "culminated" from elementary school today. Good grief, it seems like only a couple of weeks ago she was a "Campbell's Soup Kid" look-alike of a toddler. Now, she's on the verge of becoming a young lady. Absolutely amazing how quickly time flew by.

One minor note. I laughed at the contrast between her Culmination Ceremony, with speeches, awards, certificates and cake and my successful departure from elementary school, which was on the…

My apologies for not responding on my post, I'm unable to reply to any post via my phone. You are correct however, I misspoke when I said a vast majority, I should have said "a vast majority of people in my local area or lacal hangouts"

If you dare to cross the Bridge/tunnel, try Cable Car Clothiers 2 blocks from my office. I know they have straight razor implements. Even if they don't have what you're looking for, I imagine they'd be able to tell you where to look.

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him
