Time to Give Back

We did not have a “best of/worst of” roundup on the Greenopia website, but the oil spill near Ocean Beach would have made the “worst” and the Kill the Spill effort would certainly have been on the “best.” The volunteers who rallied to clean the coastline were definitely an inspiration. Officials who seemed slow to respond and clean the mess had frustrated many Bay Area residents. How great that this civilian crew was able to mobilize with their blog and take charge to get things done.


New Year’s Resolutions: Living Greener



It’s that time of year when we look back, and ahead, and make those New Year’s resolutions. Before the holidays, I asked everyone in the office to share their green resolutions for the New Year, and I expected a few sighs or some eye rolling, but everyone was forthcoming and enthusiastic about their do-good goals. (You can see the list here.)

British-American Christmas Bash



Greetings,

Boy, do Brits know how to throw a Christmas party or what? They’re especially good here on American soil, and this past week British-Americans proved they know how to do it best.

The Westin St. Francis Hotel in downtown San Francisco was the setting on Tuesday for the 44th Annual BABC Christmas Luncheon, and it was Festive with a capital “F.”

North Meets East

December is only half way through and like most monthly magazine editors, I’m already getting close to wrapping up our February issue. Those of you planning a trip to Tahoe will want to check out my fashion piece on cool snow gear. But for those skiing and boarding enthusiasts, who are already heading north for the holidays, stop by The North Face (180 Post St., 415-433-3223) this weekend for its limited edition NSE collection.

Peppermint Pedicure

I’m making a holiday visit to see family in New York and spoke to my six-year-old goddaughter the other day. Mary has already lined up many activities for the visit, from baking cookies to giving me a pedicure. Yes, that’s right. The six-year-old version of a pedicure involves massaging feet with lotion and polishing a topcoat of color on already-polished toes. As with any pedicure, I like the massage part the best, and I’m packing my own products for the job.

Designer Scarves: Wrapped Up in a Cause

The scarf is a staple in my wardrobe, no matter the season. I find that wrapping a vintage silk one around my neck or tying it to the handle of a handbag adds just the right touch (and sometimes makes me feel very French-chic). And, of course, a long, cashmere one adds just the right amount of warmth.

Dewey Cox Rocks The Great American Music Hall

Greetings Chums,

“Everyone loves Cox.” That’s what actor John C. Reilly bellowed from the stage as he performed for one night only as the legendary Dewey Cox.

This was no ordinary rock concert, it was pants down, one of the most rip-roaringly funny and brilliant live performances I have ever witnessed.
