The Teacher Lounge

California is crumbling. The schools are being attacked. How are we going to get out of this mess? I'm a middle school history teacher in San Leandro, California, and a Union activist. I'm fed up with political excuses for creating substandard schools that don't serve the very kids who have the greatest need. Please share your comments with me at mistermorse109@yahoo.com.

Yummy SF

Hi there! My name is Fanny, food writer at YummySF.com. This food blog started in 2007, after my first trip to the Winter Fancy Food Show. YummySF was a way to share my discoveries of healthy, unique, and delicious natural food products as well as favorite recipes and restaurants. In San Francisco, you can find a rich culture of restaurants that cater to vegans and raw foodists as well as almost any ethnic food you can imagine. That’s one of the reasons why San Francisco is a top destination for tourists from around the world. Whether you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or you want to visit our beautiful city, check out YummySF for my latest food adventures.

Rebuilding Oaktown

A blog about the beautification and re-redevelopment of Oaktown from the viewpoint of a downtown resident, dark greenie, new urbanist fan and world traveler. I also run a pedicab in central Oakland. It’s called “Back Seat.” Contact: k150 [at] yahoo

Around Dublin

As proud new home owners who are excited about Dublin’s impressive achievements and vast potential, we started to read the Staff Reports, follow City Council meetings, and consult Dublin’s City Staff to learn more about the many exciting developments throughout this beautiful emerald city of Northern California. Once we realized that other residents would be interested in the information we have collected and digested, we started this website to share what we know, evaluate each project on its own and in the greater context of the city, and provide a forum for interested residents to contribute their perspectives.

Ghost Town Farm

A child of back-to-the-land hippies, I grew up in rural Idaho and Washington State. I went to University of Washington in Seattle where I majored in Biology and English. I’ve had many odd jobs including: assassin bug handler, book editor, media projectionist, hamster oocyte collector, and most recently, free-lance journalist. I studied under Michael Pollan at Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism for two years. My journalistic work reflects my interests–in farming, food, the environment, and culture. In a nutshell, I like to tell stories about people who follow unconventional paths.

The Lemon Lady

I am a Mommy raising our daughter to protect and respect the environment. I wonder, what does it all mean? What can I do (what can we all do) to make our world a better place? There are so many apartments and condos throughout California and beyond that have no curbside recycling programs. Imagine the hundreds of thousands of children who attend school every day, and have no idea what this simple, common idealogy really means?

Tri-Valley Mom

This is not a typical "mommy blog" in that it's NOT "the story of a SAHM struggling with the ups and downs of motherhood" or "and baby makes crafty coupon mom of eight" or any of that noise. No problem with those blogs, but I'd say the market's pretty much saturated when it comes to that type of blog, wouldn't you? Tri-Valley Mom posts events, activities, deals, discounts, and anything else of interest to families in the East Bay's Tri-Valley. If you have anything at all to share with local parents, please post to this blog.

Curbed SF

In San Francisco, it all comes back to our neighborhoods: where we live, where we work, where we eat, and where we play. First launched in 2006, Curbed has been at the center of the virtual city, covering real estate sales, rental prices, and news-making deals. We also track the newest developments in architecture and design while keeping up with the hottest restaurants, via our sister site Eater SF, and the latest neighborhood gossip—it's all on Curbed, because this is where you live. Curbed SF is the third of the Curbed sites, which also include Curbed NY and Curbed LA, and part of the Curbed Network, a collection of neighborhood blogs. Our other sites are the restaurant blog Eater, the retail and fashion blog Racked and, during the summer season, The Beach, which covers the Hamptons.
