Q: How many women have given birth in BART stations through the years?
And the third was was born just this last Friday morning at the San Leandro BARTstation . Jessica Bennett of Hayward gave birth to a 6-pound-2-ounce girl named Jayda.
Ever wonder about those little laser lights the kids carry around these days? I knew they'd be trouble when they became cheap enough for the corner store to carry. Geez, they've gotten to the point of being party favors. But over the last three years, pilots flying over the South Bay have reported someone shining a laser in their eyes. Serious stuff, this. It can cause temporary blindness and long-term eye damage. It happened just last week to a sherrif's chopper. Well, they finally got the guy! The sherrif's office, working with San Jose cops, were able to pinpoint the origin of the laser beam near a shopping center close to the suspect's home. It wasn't a kid after all. 39-year-old Michael Weeker of Campbell was busted at his home last Monday, and could get eight years in the pokey on ten counts of shining a laser at an aircraft.
This past weekend I embarked on phase one (of three) of putting up our Christmas lights. I know it's early. I don't know if I'll have a chance to do it this weekend, so I thought I'd get a jump on it. I'll wrap up the other two phases this week, but won't throw the switch until after Thanksgiving. And when I do, you'll be able to see it from space. I'm a sucker for this stuff!
