The Word "Frisco"

I finally found evidence in a book about San Francisco's other word usage - "Frisco". Over the years I attempt to tell my brothers, family, friends and others not to use the word "Frisco". First of all it sounds ridiculous, disrespectful to the city of San Francisco and artless. Today, some still use it and it bothers me. 
I did read someplace else years ago that a certain gentleman in the late 1800's or early 1900's this guy would walk around the city and write up citations to those who used the word "Frisco". Now, as I read David Talbott's "Season's of the Witch", a book about San Francisco in the 60's and 70's mentions my point! 
Unfortunately, Eddie DeBartolo, Jr. from Youngstown, Ohio casually referred to the Niners' hometown as "Frisco" - a violation of local custom!
Some of you maybe most of you know I take pride for this beautiful city!

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
