Yes, I want peace. Yes, I want change.

The message is good. Let the elite give back what they took from all people.

As the rain crept in and out of the Day of Action, January 20th had come. I arrived at the 5 o'clock march, the last march that would lead us into "action".

Say Al--Is that you?

Say Al--is that you?

Someone's sprinklin' water & rose petals
on the baby buddha's birthday
& another millennium has passed
Say Al--is that you?

Elders: Could you use some help with grocery shopping?

Shop Around is a convenient, low cost shuttle that makes it easier to go grocery shopping for seniors over 65 and people with disabilities.  The shuttle takes you and others directly to the store in San Francisco where you like to shop.  You'll have about an hour to shop, and the driver will help carry your groceries on and off the shuttle.  Each one-way trip costs $2.00.  There are certain eligibility requirements.  For more information, call 415-351-7052.
