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

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
