New kid on the block.
Back when I lived on the East coast, far from the pupuserias and taco trucks that now signal I’m almost to my block, I made a few attempts at home-cooked Mexican food. I propped my Diana Kennedy and Rick Bayless cookbooks open, making haphazard substitutions and best attempts. I’d like to tell you that every meal was a slam-dunk, dear reader, but truth is we ate a lot of bland pinto beans and lame versions of “carnitas.”
1. How was the start of the real estate market at the beginning of this year? What is your outlook for the rest of 2007?
TT: The first quarter of 2007 has been relatively slow due to a lack of inventory. However, now there are a lot of buyers out there. I have buyers who were reluctant to get in the market last year due to media reports of a bubble in the San Francisco real estate market; who now have confidence in the economy and the local market, realizing that the media reports regarding “The Bay Area Market” are not specific to the SF market.

More than 60 historic race cars from five continents and six states took part in the 17th running of the California Mille, a tour commemorating Italy’s Mille Miglia (a thousand mile road race) that took place every year from 1927 to 1957. The Mille kicked off with a preview (a.k.a. car show) including Audis, Alfa Romeos, Ferraris, Porsches and Jaguars at the Fairmont Hotel.
I also like #29, "If you owe someone twenty dollars or less, you may pay them back in beer."
