Welcome to the blog for the Richmond District of San Francisco. Managed by several residents of the Richmond District, the blog is designed to be a source for information, events and news about the neighborhood.
Have an event coming up, a new restaurant or business opening, an idea for a story or something else you want to tell us about? Send us a note with all the details.
We hope you enjoy the blog as much as we enjoy our Richmond District neighborhood. :)
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.
Say Hey is a celebration of sports, specifically those dealing with Bay Area teams, including but not limited to the Giants, A’s, Niners, Warriors and Sharks. We’ll post and update often and meticulously, with daily roundups of your favorite teams, interesting video clips and maybe even a “joke” or two mixed in the posts.
I’m excited to share what is happening around Montclair. We live in a place that is a “great escape,” in my humble opinion. It’s wonderful to be surrounded by peace, quiet, trees, deer, cool weather, morning fogs, and European-like vistas. Plus there are a handful of farm animals, squealing here in Oakland.Why am I blogging? Well, the opportunity caught my eye because I’m a typical dotcom executive. Also, I really enjoy the polyglot of humanity in our little neighborhood. It should be fun to share the everyday joys and woes of our community.
When I think of this neighborhood, its mostly filled with people who care about what they are doing but don’t particularly care about appearances and being noticed!
On the other hand, Montclair’s a place where shopkeepers recognize you and you’re easily “part of the community” whether you have kids, are single, retired, etc.
So, expect to read about what really matters, like food, hiking, seeing movies, and saying hello to all the neighborhood dogs. Plus anything I overhear at the coffee shops is fair game.
Cheers and welcome.

I realized recently that I had neglected to post the good news here, that although I narrowly missed being elected delegate to the California Democratic Party, I managed to snag an appointment by representative Sandré Swanson. All of our local state and federal elected officials have a few slots for delegate appointments, so I'm grateful to have had this opportunity to continue my quest.

allvoices is a global community that shares news, videos, images and opinions tied to news events and people. It is the first true people’s media.
It's a place where individuals from all over the world can share what is happening where they are (location) at a particular point in time. allvoices then brings together multiple voices or points of view via news stories, videos, images and blogs from the Internet, to provide context and build momentum. The platform provides the community with the ability to search and navigate a news event by location and category, to share and to have a discussion around it, to emotionally connect with each other’s perspectives and complete the human story.
allvoices is an open and highly relevant social media site "unedited by humans", where anyone can report and add their voice from anywhere.
Walking can be a form of transportation, a means of meditation or exercise, or a great way to explore a community. Writer/photographer Keith Skinner offers intimate glimpses of Berkeley life, in word and image, as well as reflections on the joys and challenges of a modern urban walker.
I love this city. I know that Oakland has problems, but it also has an incredible amount of potential. I hope that we can become the “model city” that Mayor Dellums has promised. Unfortunately, we have a very long way to go, and many of our most politically active residents and elected officials seem to be more interested in feel-good nonsense than real solutions. In this space, I offer my personal commentary on our progress.
I used to blog with dto510 at Future Oakland. You can read some of my older posts in the archives. I also cover local politics and development for the Oakbook.
Marin Mommies was developed and launched by Pamela Fox in January, 2007. A stay-at-home mom of two small children, Pamela grew up in San Rafael, and currently lives in Novato. It is her hope that Marin Mommies will be a place for moms (and dads, too) to come together to learn, advise, discuss, and share tips and resources with other parents in Marin and the San Francisco Bay Area—and anywhere else, for that matter. Much of the content in Marin Mommies is specific to the Bay Area and Marin County, but much will be of interest to parents everywhere!
