As promised, some photos from my recent photo shoot at The Picture People at Hillsdale Mall. They have locations all over the Bay Area, and you can find them at picturepeople.com. Or just click here to get to their website. The Picture People are compensating me to speak for them. But I'd go back in a heartbeat, and would instantly recommend The Picture People to my friends. Enjoy!

As you may know by now Lisa Daley and I have a friendly wager going on with the Giants/Phillies league championship about to start. She's orange and black all the way. Having grown up in Philadelphia, I'll be wearing red and white. If the Phils win, she owes me a crab sandwich from The Wharf, and I'll buy her a cheesesteak if the Giants emerge victorious. Julie Shannon wisely remains neutral. Problem is, I haven't really found an authentic cheesesteak since moving to the Bay Area more than 25 years ago. An ideas?

Now, THIS  is authentic:

Q: How many Friday the thirteenths are there in 2010?

Then just put her on the dollar coin......

This morning's trivia on KOIT:

Q:  There was supposed to be a fifth face carved into the side of Mt. Rushmore. Who was it supposed to be?

A:  Susan B. Anthony was planned, but they ran out of $$.  Right now there are  (l to r) Washington, Jefferson, T.Roosevelt, and Lincoln.

The backpacks were flying off the shelves yesterday at Sacred Heart Community Service in San Jose. Thousands of them filled with school supplies for kids that don't have the cash for the back to school stuff they need. And the need seems to get greater every year. Each packed backpack costs about40 bucks to put together, and they plan to hand out close to fifteen thousand of them around The Bay by the end of August. Our friends at The Family Giving Tree are doing the heavy lifting again this year, and they could sure use some help.
