Oakland Museum of California, 10th and Oak Streets, Oakland
In the San Francisco Bay Area, when the first rains tease up the chanterelles and porcini, fungus lovers head to the Fungus Fair: A Celebration of Wild Mushrooms at the Oakland Museum of California. The Fair, hosted by the museum and the Mycological Society of San Francisco, provides information on the uses and abuses of fungi, with displays and exhibits on ecology, toxicology, and cultivation. Arrays of identification tables display locally collected mushrooms. Campsite gourmands learn how to serve up the safe and scrumptious species through identification tutorials, cooking demonstrations, and sales of recipe books, soups, snacks, and fresh edibles. Watch renowned Bay Area chefs prepare dishes like matsutakes & roasted cauliflower in coriander cream or sautéed caramel candy cap pears and dentelles.
The Oakland Museum of California, 10 & Oak Streets in Oakland, is block from the Lake Merritt BART and a few blocks from Highway 880. Admission to the Fungus Fair is $8 general/$5 seniors and students with ID/members and kids under 5 free, and includes museum-wide access.

Aspartame Toxicity Center,

Please foster Kittens for you local SPCA.
Help raise kittens until they are 8 weeks old or 2 lbs and can be put up for adoption.
It is important that they have humans for socialization and play! (lucky you)
this is the sweetest and most fun way to bring extra love into your life,
and into the kittens' lives. This program is FREE:
You attend their kitten foster program so you know how...
And then when they have a litter of kittens for you,
they send you home with kittens and all the cat food you need.

Beautiful Sattelite Picture of earth.

"If the aborigine drafted an IQ test,
all of Western civilization would presumably flunk it."
-- Stanley Garn

"It is time to admit that public education operates like a planned
economy. It's a bureaucratic system where everybody's role is spelled
out in advance, and there are few incentives for innovation and
productivity. It's not a surprise when a school system doesn't improve.
It more resembles a Communist economy than our own market economy."
-- Albert Shanker
(1928-1997) former president of the American Federation of Teachers

"Can we truly expect
those who aim to exploit us
to be trusted to educate us?"
