Tomotias Sunnyvale for oven fired pizza


Felt like having oven fired pizza tonight.

The three cheese pizza with anchovies hit the spot.


A buck by the old homeplace


Stop by the Elimena court house just to say hello.

The small trees at the side of the house are now very tall.

There under the power lines was a nice rack on a buck.



Saturday soccer in Fremont


The u19 boys match was fun. My two ars for the match didn’t want to be there.

On the u15 always match I had a great assistant referees. Thx Abbas and Mohammed for the help.

Something funny happened when during the coin toss with the captions. I miss the coin and it fell to the ground. I bent over to pick up the coin. My out of my pocket fell the iPhone 6. The boys all look at it and said hat is an tphone 6. They all knew what it was.


iPhone 6 arrived on opening day


Yep it’s here.

There are no instructions with it. They are all on the phone.

DMK and I got the same silver model.

And wait to use the NFC.

The Never Ending Birthday part 5


This was the Quakes vs Galaxy match. 12 tickets plus me!

It was a noon game on a hot day.

Donovan was serving a yellow card accumulation suspension so we did not get to see him.

There was some tension on the field which made it a good game for us soccer affectionatos.

Keene and Zanie and Gonzales provided lots of entertainment.
