Pad Thai in Sunnyvale – no lines here


A Sunday night out for dinner.

I tried the special weekend salad. It was kinda like kimchi and spicy.

It was good I could share with CMD’s chicken dish to cool things off.

Not sure this was good enough to go back.


First PSL match help at Morgan Hill on the grass


This was a challenging amatuer match but managable.

Victor B was the center and although he me almost all the right calls, the Portigues coach had a lot to say about his call.

Both goals were scored in front of me. Beautiful goals.

Victor B and Glenn O were the referee team.

High school varsity boys at logan


A relatively easy match for Michael L. With Bill B and I assisting. The first caution 5 min into the match left the players off guard with an official they did not know.

They behaved after that. Irvington was trounced by Logan.
