Hello!  I must say I believe I just had the MOST busiest weekends of my life! 

First of all, a big THANK YOU to those that showed up this past Friday at TONIC BAR to help me raise funds towards Team Challenge Crohn's & Colitis of America! It was my first time to ever work at a real SF Bar. So privileged to pour drinks to hard working people in the city! Thank you to Dave, Erica, & Kyle who manages the Tonic Bar! I wore open toe platforms for 4 hours +! Yay! 

THEN, next morning at 8:30am ran 7 miles in Golden Gate Park. It was truly THE PERFECT run that morning! Absolutely beautiful!

And THEN, later that afternoon, I volunteered at The Neon Run at Candlestick Park from 5-11pm! Yup! Greeted the NEON RUNNERS at the main entrance! It was fun to see families, kids, adults, seniors and spectators come support their loved ones. I tell ya, this event was fantastic! Everyone was so polite, fun, positive and energetic group of folks! I did wear sneakers so my feet were fine yet tired. My time at the Neon Run was worth it because I earned some funds towards my fundraising goal!

4 weeks remain for me to finish raising funds towards Crohn's & Colitis. Please help me reach my goal. Below is my fundrasing page:

Thank you in advance for your support.

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

Proud to be a Native San Franciscan

The past six months (or should I say years living in Dogpatch District) I've been blessed with amazing experiences I had not expected. As some of you know me well enough, I stay active in Dogpatch community since I moved here almost 14 years ago.  I believe the universe wanted me to live on this side of town in San Francisco before anything was really here.  I thought (and still do) volunteering every year for almost 13 years, is something great to do for the community and the neighborhood I live in. I've seen it grow and grow, almost like a child like where you want to protect it, defend it and let it grow to something so wonderful. Really, it's not me, it's the community that I fed off of over the years because of their passion, drive and determination in protecting this area - Dogpatch Historic District. Summer 2009, I was elected to be on board of Dogpatch Neighborhood Association as Member Coordinator/Corresponding Secretary. Re-elected last October 2015 f
