A beautiful sight for a self-admitted Space geek.  Space Shuttle Endeavor circled the Bay twice this morning.  Once over the East Bay, then again closer to San Francisco.  I'm glad I made the trek down to the Embarcadero to see it.  I'm a bit sad to think that there will be no more shuttle flights for the foreseeable future.
Loving life in SF!
Self admitted geek and Apple fan boy living in San Francisco.  Things I love:
  • good design be it a physical product or a user interface
  • good food and drinks
  • travel
  • photography
  • and most of all good friends!
