Okay, not about Fremont, but it's close enough

If anyone was going to the Roger Waters concert at the HP Pavilion in San Jose tonight, when was it announced that the concert was rescheduled for tomorrow?  More to the point:  where was it announced?  I drove all the way out there and wondered why there was nobody near the Shark Tank, and why parking was so easy.


How are they going to fit two sold out nights worth of people into one show?  Are we going to sit on each other's laps?

Barnes and Noble closing

I went to the B&N store today and saw that they will be closing on December 31, 2010. They already have some stuff on sale at 40%--mostly just their bargain books, calenders, journals and their home & office supplies. Apparently the landlord wants to hike the rent and the store doesn't want to pay. They want to move somewhere else but they don't know where.

I know it's a chain but I'm sorry to see them go since I remember how excited I was as a kid when it opened. And I know Borders is across the street but I have a lot of fond memories of this place.

Local running tracks?

Hi everyone, my roomie and I are looking for a local running track - we want to do sprints as part of our workouts, but to do them safely you pretty much need a nice smooth track. I've checked the websites of some local high schools, but couldn't find any information regarding public usage of their tracks outside of school hours.

I will probably end up contacting the schools individually on Monday to see if I can find out their policies. In the meantime, does anyone have any recommendations they can share? Thank you!

San Bruno fire

It has been a few years since I left fremont. (No regrets). Anyhow, I work heavily with police and fire out here in Arizona these days. I was asked to post a request for the Bay Area to donate blood if you can. Specifically, O negative. The bay Area hospitals are coming up short right now and could really use it. We feel for you in this tragedy and would like to help in any way we can.

BTW, if you ever want a hand in setting up a user friendly forum, please conact me. This is what we have in my neck of the woods these days: http://forum.maricopa360.com/ (Software is free)

And for the many good people I met here during my time in Fremont, this is what I have been up to over the last few years: www.newsofmaricopa.com

Alterations sort of?

Hello, everyone! I bought a pair of shoes that were on sale since they were damaged. The shoes have zippers that go up the heel, but one of them doesn't zip. The material is hard, so I wasn't sure about putting on a new zipper myself.

PicturesCollapse )

Does anyone know where I can get this fixed for cheaper?
I'm not sure if I could just go to a clothing alterations place, since the material is tough.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Stuffed animals to good homes

Hi there.

I'm trying to find some room in my condo, and have several stuffed animals that need good homes.  All are in very good condition and have lived in a smoke free home. 

I'm asking $5 each for the smaller critters (12-14" tall).  The larger animals are $10 each.

Or you can take the lot in the photo for $50.

There is an alligator, black panther, white horse, two lions (one battery operated and roars - needs new batteries), five foot long boa, arctic fox, growling bear with trout (needs batteries), and huge leopard. 

All have been packed in rubbermaid tubs for about five years.

There are also some miscellaneous animals not shown that I can bag up and give to you for free.

This includes two Bug's Life talking characters and a fur real pet (all need fresh batteries).

Contact me at ferrethunter@gmail.com for more info.

Plumber Recommendation?

Can anyone suggest a good plumber that they have used?  I have looked on Yelp and found two possibilities, but I figured I would check here.

(I saw foofers' suggestion for Allstate, but I thought I would check if there were any others.)
