  • Blog Post: Notes from a hole in the ground...

    South of Market Street. Actually three holes. North, South and West Halls. That's the Moscone Center here in San Francisco. In previous years, the North and South Halls were stuffed to the rafters with all kinds of opportunities to explore every thing Mac. However, with the bust of the dot com boom,...
  • Blog Post: Greetings from north of Cupertino

    If you're reading this, odds are you're using a Windows PC. Unless that is you're on a Mac. Short for Macintosh. Apple that is. And if you're on a Mac, odds are you may have heard of this little event called the Macworld Expo. It is everything Apple and then some. This is the place to see all of the...
  • Blog Post: Meanwhile, back at the ranch ...

    This week, we all have moments we probably recall fondly. Or maybe they're those ones you don't ever want to discuss again? Perhaps they may be the legends of family history? Perhaps a tale about trees and pets or that gift that kept getting passed on from one generation to another... Somewhere buried...
  • Blog Post: Building "Character"

    Small towns across the country have welcomed their citizens to festivals of all kinds. Harvest festivals tend to be among the most popular type. Many had their early days back in the Victorian era. One such small town was Walnut Creek, California. With roots back to the Gold Rush era, this typical small...
  • Blog Post: The price of freedom is ... ?

    Ever heard this phrase? "Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom." Sadly, it came to mind on a recent afternoon at Disneyland. I had the pleasure of enjoying a rare visit to the Park with my mother. No other family members or friends. After a long drive down from the San Francisco Bay Area, we had...
  • Blog Post: Hail the Tiki!

    If you haven't seen a Tiki lounge somewhere along the way, you've probably been living under a rock for the last 60 years. The Polynesian theme invaded taverns across the country back before World War II. Places like Don the Beachcomber's or Trader Vic's made fruity rum drinks all the rage. But don't...
  • Blog Post: Cranky Pants and you!

    I know, I know. Some of you are cranky because you dropped by today, expecting to find a new "Why For" up on JimHillMedia.com. Still others of you are cranky because -- after all that eating you did yesterday -- you're having trouble just fitting into your pants today. Either way, we could all use a...
  • Blog Post: Not the usual suspects...

    Recently, I had to travel from the San Francisco Bay Area down to Southern California. (And, yes, it did include a visit to Disneyland.) There were a variety of choices available on how to make the trip. The usual is a long drive down Interstate 5. From Livermore to the Park usually takes about six to...
  • Blog Post: Set the "Way Back" machine...

    What ever it was that made is special for you; it is something to be recalled fondly. If you can still enjoy that classic experience today, that's fine as well. But what if you tend to be like me and have seen much of those "classic moments" fade away? Well, you could be like a group of older gentleman...
  • Blog Post: The Private Railroad Car Experience

    Travel by train has always held a fascination for many people. There was a golden age before the Second World War when deluxe service aboard the train attracted not only the rich and famous, but the average traveler as well. In many places, the train was the only way to get there from anywhere. The parlor...
