Happy Super Bowl, Again, Bay Area

It's been 31 years since the Super Bowl was played here in the Bay Area. It was Super Bowl 19, Dolphin's vs 49ers, at Stanford Stadium and I was there. I paid face value, $60, for my ticket. When the game was over, and I got back to my car, the battery was dead. I had left my headlights on (traffic control wanted lights on in the daylight). Anyway, I was sitting in my car, thinking about my options, when a 1969 AHS classmate, Joe Nunez, walks right in front of my car! How lucky was that? I got a jump in about two seconds and I was back on the road savoring a 38-16 Niner win. That was a good day.

Sports Room @ Pittsburg Museum

This is a room that honors Pittsburg's rich sports history at the museum on Railroad Ave. It's open Wednesday's and Saturday's. Most of it is Pittsburg High School, but professional sports and a variety of vintage boxing posters are on display as well. As I get older I appreciate history more and more. I enjoy visiting museums, especially the local ones. They show me how our communities got started. Volunteers open and close these places. If you have a few hours a month and want to help in your community this is a good thing to consider doing and they can use your help.

I Am On A Mission To Find A Great Cup Of Joe...

For years I've been drinking ordinary coffee. Whatever is on sale. I thought it was all about the same. Now I've seen all the Todd Carmichael DANGEROUS GROUNDS episodes. He gets so excited. I always wondered "what's this guy drinking?" I've seen PULP FICTION. Remember this scene? Now I'm on a mission. Can I taste the difference between ordinary and gourmet? I'll spend the extra money for good bourbon, but I won't on wine. Now I'm going to look into coffee. I've received some good suggestions on FACEBOOK. I will be visiting BIG HOUSE BEANS. I'm going to get me some Pete's Major Dickason and some Winco Java Rocket & Black Satin beans. I hope I find something that knocks my socks off. Do you consider yourself a bit of a coffee connoisseur? What do you recommend I try?

Next Week the SPOTLIGHT will be delivered on Thursday 2/11/2016
