    I have always had my own utensils, reusable coffee mug, water tumbler and try my best to bring home cooked lunch, fresh fruits and veggies. Though this takes a lot of preparation at night, it helps me get out of the house early to catch the train going to work. I believe I am helping the environment in my own little ways =))

      Hmmm....not sure if what I took from Castro Valley to Civic Center is a New Bart car...it looked the same, except the seat covers did change...so glad we have the Bart system...with the Friday downpour, it would have been a challenge to drive there....but downtown SFO was fabulous last Friday...as soon as we got off the Bart, there was no rain, no wind and just perfect for walking....praised God for that!!!
