It happened again... We rocked the house! This year we had 4 bands play, a bouncy house, a whole roast pig and more. Aztec Dancers bless our block every year.
Every year we get fantastic views of the Blue Angels when they fly over San Franciso for Fleet Week. The fly right overhead some times. I only got a few good photos this year
We took a flight from Leon Mexico to San Jose to get the covid-19 vaccine, since it was not available for our age group. We stayed at my friend's place in Cow Hollow. We took a few walks to the wharfs, the golden gate park, and few other spots.

Bayview Child Health Center - https://smhcsf.org/
We work to promote health and wellness by addressing your physical, mental and emotional needs. We offer services for patients from birth through 26 years of age and female caregivers ages 26 to 55, including: preventive care and physicals, same day appointments (acute care for illness and injuries), chronic disease management (such as diabetes, asthma and more), referrals to vetted specialists and mental health providers, and management of multi-specialty care plans including mental health. Our mission is to provide the right care, at the right time.
Center for Youth Wellness - https://centerforyouthwellness.org/
The Center for Youth Wellness is part of a national effort to revolutionize pediatric medicine and transform the way society responds to kids exposed to significant adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress.
Founded by Dr. Nadine Burke Harris in 2012, we were created to respond to an urgent public health issue: early adversity harms the developing brains and bodies of children. Now led by Gatanya Arnic, an executive with more than fifteen years of experience in leadership development and healthcare, Dr. Burke Harris’s mission continues through the Center’s current work.
In partnership with Bayview Child Health Center, we screen every young person we see for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) that we know can lead to toxic stress and lifelong problems with health, wellness and learning. We heal children’s brains and bodies by piloting treatments for toxic stress and sharing our findings nationally. We prevent toxic stress by raising awareness among those who can make a difference: from parents and pediatricians to policy makers.
During Covid Lockdown our block found a way to still have some socially distanced fun. We blasted music from speakers in a neighbor's house and stayed at least 6 feet away (in our pods) while masked up and dance'd out our frustrations with neighbors. You didn't have to do it in matching onesies, but it helps.
Ever take a photo and think "That could be an album cover"? Well that happened today for me. The locals (Otto, Lars, and Angel) got together and their inner rock stars emerged
The Mullen Ave Block party is undefeated every year. This year it was HOT so we had to bust out the kiddie pools. There were 3 pools all together. Pictured are Lars and Elliot in their birthday suits
Kenan's Band (playing the bass) plays periodically here. Today some neighborhood kids joined it (Lars and Elliot). You can see Jose Najera here too
Mullen ave throws the BEST block party every year since the 70s. Our resident historian Dores Najara collects pictures each year and manages our montages
Gorgeous golf course with views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Golf was a fun past time in my corporate days. I got to play many top rated courses from Maryland to California. This photo (that's me on the right) was taken circa 2001-2002 with my secret weapon... we won!
Also notable for this property are the many schools, one of which is the ABC preschool:
ABC Preschool is ideally located by Lincoln Park with its green fields and a wonderful view of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.
Sometimes the sound of a foghorn can be heard in the background among the happy voices of children playing under the cherry blossom tree in the courtyard.
In this wonderful environment, we teach the children to appreciate both Japanese and American cultures.
Our motto is “Healthy mind and Healthy body.”
