reading the signs

while strolling around Berkeley:

-EBMUD water conservation project next to VLSB: half the lawn is watered with underground drip pipes the other uses the regular sprinkler heads

-Cody's Books, large "Now Open" banner on top of the building, with a lengthy detailed apologetic letter on the door saying they are closed for good. Books still on the shelves as if left as a museum piece on Shattuck of the glory days of bookstores.

-Kellogg Building, where Ben & Jerry's is, was the first high school accredited by UC Berkeley, but too far and expensive for most Berkeley citizens who lived along the water in west Berkeley

-A license plate frame, "Yeah, I'm a bitch, I'm just not yours."
