We used to drive through San Leandro on are way over to the valley - with the windows rolled up and the doors locked!!! LOL Now it is full of tract houses and business parks.

    gotsomerice - if you ever get tired of that beauty send it off to ME . I have two week spots - anything orange and complex (Bulldog) paphs. (Not to mention dark chocolate, fine red wine. old port, pretty jewellry, etc.....)
