"I like your idea Richard it reminds me of the 3 rail system that was used there back in the day. I suspect, however, we would sooner see Corte Madera demand to be the terminus of a BART extension from Richmond.  Ha ha... ;-)"

"Corte Madera is adjacent to Larkspur; where were you thinking for the concept?  The shopping center perhaps? I guess if Corte Madera wanted it they'd have to sort it out.  It would sure be a hoot if they did... :-)"

Yes, my second time to Afghanistan, once to Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, & Bahrain. I have been mobilized since Mar2003. Each of the before mentioned deployments were one year each. The other five years, I was at Fort Lewis training Soldiers to deploy around the world.

I hope I can start and enjoy my hobby now.... ;)

Thanks Jennifer,

I am back! I am back in the US. I just completed my last overseas tour. I cannot believe how tired I am. I keep breathing a huge sigh of relief.

Wow! You live in Sunnyvale, CA. I used to live in Cupertino, CA. Sunnyvale used to be one of my old stomping grounds.

Hello Jennifer!
