Using the word "Green" has simply become a marketing word for business and developers to build more high density condos.
We talk out of both sides of our mouths. On a morning commute down 101 count how many cars have just one person.

Living green really means living more simply. Just think about how your grandparents lived.

Salvaging businesses are all over the East Bay.


There are a few good salvage places here, but I get the sense that everything besides fixtures and furniture just sits there for a long time. The EPA one is making it clear that the city wants them closed so we'd then have to go to SF or East Bay.

What happened to the trees in front of the house?


Couldn't they find something "historical" in this Historical Neighborhood of Historical Burlingame?


What is Historical about an Old House?

Local Motion

Some local yokels could be standing in the middle of Gettysburg and not see anything historic. Just tear the whole place down so we can look just like Foster City.


While visiting the Main Library today I saw City crews working on the trees there.
It looks very good. Professional
There is a HUGE differnce between Gettysburg and any house in Burlingame..
But I get your point.
Beauty, or lack thereof, is in the eye of the beholder.

The FACT that the caterpillar fits in the driveway next to its dozer house victim strikes me as curiously ironic because the future PROBABILITY of seeing the family car(s) parked next to the new maxed-out McMansion with its at least 80' driveway is next to nil.
