    c'mon dude. you're not that far from some similar places.

    As long as you don't keep Kosher, go to this place for their roasted Dungess crab and garlic noodles. You will thank me.

    I almost took a job in Berkeley a few years ago. Loved it there. Job offer was great but not as much of a bump in salary as I would have needed to enjoy the same standard of living as I have here in NJ now. Friggin real estate there was out-of-control. For the same money I could have gotten for selling my 3,200 Sq foot house here (beautiful yard and pool, etc.) at that time, I would have only been able to buy an inferior flea-bitten shack (by NJ standards) with no yard, no space, no basement in the nicer parts of the East Bay (Walnut Creek and vicinity). I just couldn't justify the downgrade in living accommodations even with a raise. And East Bay isn't even the most expensive parts of the greater SF area. But we did love it there. I just don't get how people can adjust to those tiny homes with no yards and basements... even in the affluent areas.

    We are seriously considering retirement in Napa in another decade or two.

    I don't really get this. I'd much rather live in a TINY place in an area I want to be in, then a big place where I'd rather not be.

    I moved to a home less than half the size of my previous home. I thought it would be a major adjustment, but now I wonder why the hell I thought I ever needed a house that size. And it really wasn't that big.

    You may be right. But when we looked at homes in Walnut Creek and the surrounding area the rooms were tiny and the people selling the houses had put a ton of their furniture in their garages in order to make their houses look more livable. I couldn't fathom how tiny they would have seemed had all that furniture been in the placed where it normally was. Every house we looked at had masses of furniture piled up in the garage.

    A lot of people here would consider my place a shack - literally. My mother almost pooped herself the first time she saw it.

    I've actually become interested in the small house movement and there are a lot of people like me who, once they live in a small place, not only like it better, but want to take it a step further and get rid of all the crap they've amassed over the years. It's liberating. I wouldn't mind unloading 90 percent of our s***. Wife is slowly coming around.

    I say if you really want to move some place - move! Life is too short. I talked about moving for 15 years.

    Even if your worried about kids, show them how 99 percent of the world lives.


    old home 1850 sq ft





    new home 875 sq ft. (although there is a loft not counted)

    I'm trying to google pictures that would capture the WCO and Ruby meeting in SF, but when you search for "passed out at gay bar" or the like, you get really bad stuff even with the safe search on

    Same problem in Marin when I lived out there. A garage in Tiburon or Belvedere would cost you $ 1 Million.

    Good luck with the Napa plans. I'll cook for a room above the garage.
