Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror and Deliverance in the City of Love
Wow! This book was a great read! It had me engaged, fear with terror and amazing deliverance!

This city that I love so much, makes me proud where San Franciscans did pull together in the midst of terror, tragedy and triumph! It's not just politics, but it is the people that live here who make SF. The working class, the Pac Heights, the Mission, the diversity is what makes SF amazing! We can't forget the wonderful San Francisco 49ers! They helped San Franciscans to believe change was on it's way after the terror that occurred prior.
It is books like these that fill me with joy, continued optimisim in where we, anyone can make a change and be part of history. History teaches us a lot on how to work together as a city.
Most of you know me where I take pride in this city. I want this city to continue to excel, be part of change and make a difference in my community at large.

I highly encourage you to read this phenomenal book. David Talbot indeed cover his basis and research. Hats off to him considering he was born in Los Angeles. I'll let it slide David Talbott for you calling this city your city. This city belongs to all of us including those that venture out here to make a living and change!

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend

Quarantine Times: Third Weekend These past three weeks I've been diggin' into my movin' groovin' music vault (aka cd's, cassette tapes and do have 1 8-track, LOL). In my late teens and twenties, I listened to lots of different music (I'm blessed that I was open to ALL music as it made me appreciate different genres). Since places, I love to go to such as libraries, events, and museums are closed and my friends quarantining I am finding myself playing music. Like I'm going back to my music. Back then, I used to listen to a cd or cassette tape from beginning to end and got to know the album real good. Here's one that I would play to death. #MikiHoward "Ain't Nobody Like You" is my favorite of all. I hope you enjoy it and dance to it. It's a piece of feel-good music. I will continue to share music with you all. Feel free to share your music favorites with me. :) It will keep us going. ~vanessa ross

Ten years in Dogpatch

It's the first weekend of August and I am feeling pretty blessed. This blog post is dedicated to my neighborhood Dogpatch Historic District. Some of you know I enjoy staying busy with not only with work, (plus invovled in other projects) but am active in my beloved Dogpatch Neighborhood of ten years. I've been a member of the Dogpatch Neighborhood Association since 2004 and in 2009 I was voted in as the Membership Coordinator/Corresponding Secretary. I'm currently still on board as I was voted in again early this year. Thank you neighbors. The growth of Dogpatch has flourished beautifully with the help of local newspapers, NY Times, Travel & Leisure Magazine and more plus social media.  More condos are currently being developed and more yet to hit the ground soon. The Muni T line on 3rd Street has definitely help bring people into the area. In addition, the Dogpatch Saloon is under new management and reopened last Monday. It is more inviting and enliven's the
