Popular in the Noon Hour

Image or picture of popular place in Silicon Valley

This humble commercial center is the core of Silicon Valley. Yes really. The first Computer Literacy (AKA is here, as well as a sandwich shop, and a Fedex office. What more could you want. I did bring visiting parents to Computer Literacy, and my father was especially impressed. His remark was the books were not as impressive as all the people browsing them, the people clearly understand all that stuff.

New Day Blooming

It is just after dawn. We are along side San Tomas Creek. A neighborhood volunteer group planted some of the plants in the foreground. Wish I could get closer, many are in bloom. Nice to see along busy San Tomas Expressway.

As land in Silicon Valley grows more precious, we see more combination commercial and residential property such as this. Look at this picturecarefully, and the next as well.

If you look carefully between the buildings and over a palm tree, a blimp passes us in the distance. Tried to get a better picture, but the blimp turned and flew in the opposite direction.
