With all its money, and all its techies, er … creative entrepreneurs, San Francisco can do better. To avoid the kind economic dystopia that Pope Francis recently warned about, the City of St. Francis can, at the least, make its public transit system something other than a disgrace. Somewhere in these seven by seven miles of densely packed ambition is a solution.

It's that time again to get in some waders and jump in McNab Lake. I hear this year we are going to be sporting new duds so no one will be getting wet (unless someone decides to fall!). Everyone did such a marvelous job in the summer the lake doesn't look half bad. I think we are really going to make a huge dent in the slime/garbage reduction overall this time around.
Thanks to all who braved the green waters in years past. I sure hope you can come back and help us again. Don't forget we need volunteers of all ages. We also tackle the cleanup of the play structure at the same time. This semi annual deep cleaning helps keep the play area clean and fun for all to enjoy and is especially important in the dark and sometimes wet winter months.
Local grocer Fresh & Easy on Silver Ave. is once again sponsoring Help McLaren Park's the "Jump in the Lake and Rake" event at Louis Sutter Park Dec 14th, 9AM - noon.

6:15p, 12/5/13 Community Pop-Up Market, Bayview Opera House
Join us at the 12/5 Community Pop-Up Market, now on Thursdays at the Bayview Opera House, for the second 94124-focused class aimed at giving Bayview residents the tools to make their own healthy, fermented foods. (Yes, yogurt is fermented!) And it is very easy to make using common kitchen equipment. At the market, sponsored by Bayview Underground Food Scene, you can pick up dinner (from ToliverWorks' vegan soup to Antie April's soul food), tomorrow's lunch fixings (Earl's Bread and CFN salads), and desert of course (Feve Artisan Chocolates and Yvonne's pralines)... all locally made!
The class will include a demo on making yogurt using live cultures, a discussion of other fermented dairy products (and a free starter for making dairy kefir for those interested), and you will go home with a pint of homemade yogurt to use as a starter for your first home batch. Come and be a part of the fermenting ferver in the Bayview!
