Today at 1 Ridley and I are at Book Passage in Corte Madera; tonight at 7 we're at Copperfields in Petaluma, also known as "The City That Is Fun To Pronounce." Petaluma Petaluma Petaluma.

We believe we are still in California.

Sounds like Pet a llama

Well don't forget where you are or you won't be there any more . . .

How's the attendance at these rallies? Are Middle School kids allowed to vote?

Dave, Does fiction have staying power when it comes to the economy?

Shouldn't the evil empire banks be out strumpeting to win our trust back?

If you have a chance, I would highly recommend picking up a barbecue tri-tip sandwich from Lombardi's, out on Petaluma Blvd. Best eaten with chips, beer and a spare shirt, because things can get a little messy.

Petaluma is where George Lucas filmed American Graffiti. Be on the lookout for a hot blonde in a T-bird.


Hey, it IS fun to pronounce! And to type.

Petaluma is where Charles Schultz drew "Peanuts". Be on the lookout for kites in trees.

"Would you be willing to swear that you're ten years old, standing in a field near Petaluma, California?"

No? Good, then, because that would be like living in a Philip K. Dick novel. Instead, get them to take you to dinner at Duarte's Tavern in Pescadero. Ah, that won't work. It's way more than 8 miles away.

Formerly the chicken capital of the world,Petaluma has fallen on hard times.
Now it's just another place like Oakland. In the Bay Area all surrounding communities are jealous of the city proper,just as most New Yorkers are jealous of Manhattan,or the City as it is called by its residents.

Petaluma is also the birthplace of Winona Ryder, of shoplifting fame. Also the place where a school bus load of kids was captured and held hostage. They couldn't find the bus for days, because they had dug an underground bunker to hide it.
Who knew Central California could be so quirky.

Bilge - the residents of San Francisco and the surrounding areas call San Francisco "the City" as well.

No Telecom, we of the San Jose call it "That Smaller City to the North of Us".
