Oakland, CA at the Top

SustainLane.us, “the largest community-powered directory of green products and businesses and user reviews,” recently rated Oakland, California, the top city in the US that “provide(s) citizens with the highest percentage of power produced from renewable energy…”

“SustainLane Government determined the percentage of each city’s electricity that comes from renewables such as solar, wind, geothermal, and small-scale hydro energy.”

That’s great positive news for Oakland, my hometown.


The Roses

The day before my birthday we Chris and I went to Oakland to visit Babe and Betty. Babe got off the sofa for a while and sat in his wheel chair and looked not happy.
Back in the kitchen, I took these pictures of the Baxley’s and Madsen’s so I could show it them someday.
