    A new San Francisco neighborhood

    After 10 years in Noe Valley our daughter, son-in-law and grandson found their first home in the West Portal area of the city. So named for the western opening in the tunnel under Twin Peaks through which the famous Muni trains run. This side of a Twin Peaks is famous for more fog, but not today with blue skies and highs in the low 80s. Since the guest bedroom is not ready for usage we are staying downtown and using the 75 senior fare for a short 12 minute Muni ride to within a few blocks of their place. Saturday was a day of introductions during a block party. Nice neighbors and nice well tended homes -- more than a few with AstroTurf yards.

    Love exploring a new area of the city on foot.

    The quality of "Astroturf" today is amazing, isn't it! Some friends with a home on Pte. Milou have it around their place . . . and it feels as natural as it looks.

    Astroturf will become a very viable aspect of grass replacement here in CA if the water problem gets any worse. (I should buy stock now!)

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance !
