and had a movement.
At least the handicap parking spaces are open for their real use now.
It’s the last Saturday in July 2021 and not a hint of anything Feast Of Lanterns on the streets. They say the were not sure if there was going to be a feast so no one got a permit.
And it would cost $2,5000 to put up banners or lanterns. But we got banners to celebrate internal combustion powered personal motor cars. How substainable can that be?
I’d say that the people put in charge are working to cleanse the FOL of all it’s perceived racist cultural misappropriation and sterilize the celebration. No corny stories, no jewel tinted gowns. No Torii gates. No belly dancers. No showing of affection between man and woman. No dragon. No Chinese fonts. No fun. Just a lecture telling you to be ashamed using a collection of folk tales for selfish entertainment.
Stick a fork in it, the Feast Of Lanterns is done and gone forever it seems.
Saw these two back in April, same old same old. Cant teach people to close the lid to quit attracting gulls, raccoons and rats
This one I saw someone from the do-no-wrong Grove Market emptying garbage and walked away leaving it open.
And down the street at P.G. Juice N Java – yep. A gull’s buffet.
What can we do? Let’s build the kids a playhouse to hide the trash in. What do they do? Yep, leave it open.
Visitors like Ben Harvey and police chief Cathy Madalone now can better understand where they are in the city they are in charge of.
Got two signs at the rec trail (where the chief said there were none)
This huge Lovers Point sign at the beach.
Another smaller sign at Otter Point
Then it gets weird. Over at Point Pinos it says Asilomar
One turnout is named Crespi Pond
Then in a weirder twist, a turn out named after a non existent fog horn.
So, what ARE sidewalks for anyway
The Pine Avenue work has been discussed at P.G. traffic commission and city council meetings for more than five years.
But the four-way stop will be something that drivers will have to get used to.
“We are going to have to make sure that the public now knows there is a four-way stop at Congress,” Gho said.
Good luck with that. People don’t stop on Congress where stop signs have been for decades.
The anti Measure M people that think turning neighborhoods into transient businesses is “vibrant”.
And a picture of the drive in from a PGHS yearbook.
And sidewalk. Thanks shop owner. Should have confronted him but I really didn’t want to get too close and breath in dirt, pollen and seagull poop.
