I love it here but it is changing fast and becoming so overdeveloped and expensive.

So, I just got back from taking a meeting behind bars, and it was like a meeting on steroids! It did me as much good as it did those prisoners if not more!!!

To doityourself58: I lived near Flood Park on Hedge Road. I am hoping the park is still there as it was such a great place to gather, swim and have barbeques. My family left Menlo Park in 1962 as my Dad was promoted to a bigger job in Phoenix. I didn't care for the heat there but really liked the desert.

Ok now I have two songs stuck in my head at the same time:

"every chingalingaling that they started to sing so fine
when you come back around after painting the town
some can even make me cry"

over and over in my head.

To DaneK: I found the prisoners to be much more polite and welcoming than I expected. It was a very humbling experience. The food was so bad that I wished I could bring in some food to some of guys. This was in the 80's when things were different. We did have to go thru a clearance to be allowed in. Nice that you brought a meeting to people who really appreciated your input, I'm sure. Congrats!

It's "Almost Over You" by Sheena Easton.

But that's ok, because it's all suddenly been replaced by "some people want to fill the world with silly love songs'

Oh no, Goat - probably the only McCartney song I don't care for.
Mine today has been 'Fame' by Bowie.

Whether or not I like a song has little or no bearing on whether it gets stuck in my head
