DSC01229 Golden Gate Bridge vista point


Working through some IT problems. Hope to be back soon.

***
In the mean time, please enjoy Tony Bennett's signature song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco", who first sang the song in the Venetian Room of the Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill in December 1961 and recorded it the next month. CBS released it as the B-side of the single "Once Upon A Time". DJ's all but ignored the A-side and chose to flip over the record bringing "...San Francisco" to the top of the pop charts. Bennett received the Grammy for Best Male Solo Vocal Performance and the song received Record of the Year. 

I have always adored this song, but now have a Pavlovian response of glee because it is played over the public address system at AT&T Park after every San Francisco Giants home game victory.

My heart goes out to you, DB. We have had a time getting my laptop back together again....biggest loss were two months of photographs. I guess that I have learned my lesson.

Miss you, friend. I do.

Sorry about the IT problems, DB, but...in the meantime, this is enough to satisfy!

Gorgeous photo of the bridge. Hope your IT issues get resolved. Finally my IT issues have been resolved. No fun, is it!

Ginnie and I have a nephew in Sydney who just helped our brother get his IT issues resolved, over the phone. Maybe he can help. :-)

But seriously, hurry back!

This is a view of the bridge I haven't seen often! Had to chuckle about your Pavlovian response. I wonder if your readers caught that one? Hope for you things will turn to normal soon!
