Kodak

“You press the button, we do the rest.” is the Kodak company’s slogan in the early 1900. They claimed that they invented the roll film , therefore photographing became common activity. But later on some former partner suited them for infringement act and won, Kodak had to pay millions of dollars, but they already were successful company by then, that’s just an expense of running the company to them. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/theymadeamerica/whomade/eastman_hi.html

Dog

We went to the little park today. We see dogs there all the time. This time we saw one dog there, it seems friendly to me so I allow my daughters go ahead play with it. They chased each other all over the place. And the owner was a nice lady, she said that dog was 9 years old, it even kissed Fanny on the cheek.

Why Sally Hawkins did not win Oscars?

I wanted to watch the Oscar ceremony last night, but I had to give it up because of my children had to do homework. I only saw the beginning and the best screenplay award which go to the film that was not my favorite. My favorite one was Happy-Go-Lucky, it was starring by Sally Hawkins. She already won several awards from around the world last year. She is one of the best actresses that I love. Her stunning performance in Fingersmith and Persuasion which caught my attention is unforgettable. I think she is brilliant. Her eyes and even eyebrows could talk when she was in the passionate scenes. Someday must win Oscars.

Sunbathing

We are fortunate enough to be the Californians. I can not complain too much about the rain of the last week anymore. Compare to the weather in the back East, we are in heaven. So when the sun came out yesterday, we went out to the park to sit around and built sand castles. If the time frozen device is exist in this world. I will choose to freeze this moment.

Winter storm

It was raining on and off in the past week. The rainy days in North California seems too cold to me, as an immigrant who came from subtropical zone, I used to go out in the rain just by carrying an umbrella, it won’t bother me even I got wet, but if you got wet in the rain here, I can tell you that you will get freeze in a very short time. That’s why we put on gear when we go out in the rain. No one wants to get the pneumonia.

Spring is near

What a wonderful day here today. The neighbor’s tree is full of pink blossom. We went to the little park for sun bathing. Look at what she has found, it’s an earthworm, I took the opportunity to teach her science. I even let her hold the worm in her hands, but accident happen, that poor thing came apart easy. It turned into four pieces. Oh well, it’s still good for the garden.

Two sisters

They seem having fun here. This park is located right outside the police station of Richmond District San Francisco. We call it dog toilet that’s because people bring their dogs here for…you know. Fortunately, most of the people will pick up what their dogs left behind.

Traffic safety

As you know that motorists have to yield the right of way to the pedestrians, but there is a law that allow motorists make a right turn when it’s red light, it gives most of the drivers a mistaken idea that they can go ahead make a right turn even when it’s time for the pedestrians cross the street. I’ve ran into this kind of situation before. Every time when I come to the intersection. I have to stare into the drivers’ eyes, make sure he or she will stop before I cross the street. Yield to pedestrian, please! Here is a nice driver letting John cross the street.
