Are there public murals where you live?

Smileycreek, I and the SFKossacks had a meet-up this past weekend. I must tell you the truth. This was the best meet-up we've ever experienced other than Netroots Nation Conventions because it was a total blast the entire time. It started with the party at DailyKos Headquarters on Friday, then continued Saturday afternoon with Kim O'Conner in the Mission District. Later on Saturday afternoon we met up with a bunch of the SFKossack boys at the Twin Peaks Bar for drinks in the Castro then went to Lefty O'Doul's in Union Square that night for more drinks and dinner.

I could name drop who, what and where...but you know who you are, and you look marvelous! One thing I did was bring some money. By some force of nature, I came home with scant bits of it. Did we have fun? Well, is a frog's ass watertight? That's should answer that question.

In the Mission District Kim was an amazing tour guide. If you ever have the chance, you simply must get yourself to Kim's place...sit in her amazing garden...then have her tour you around. Smileycreek and I both ---> want to go to there...again. Here are some pics I took of murals in the Mission. San Francisco is and has always been one of the funnest places I've ever been. Growing up in Denver, once I got my drivers license, I drove straight to San Francisco, which takes 24 hours. I did that over and over. Then I moved to Santa Cruz and could get to SF in 90 minutes. Now it takes 3 hours to drive there. And we love it, every time.

Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share part of the evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, and interesting videos, as well as links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate.

Finally, readers may notice that most who post diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but newcomers should not feel excluded. We welcome guests at our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
