So much going on! I'm really interested in the Berkeley walk on my birthday. :) Too bad I'll be up here, it usually rains that day. POPOS looks really organized and well thought out, those "snippets" and plazas a really vital part of downtown, to break up the monotony of the concrete canyons! What's happening there on Earth Day? I'm looking for something good to do here before our SAGBUTT meeting that day.
