Ride GGT or GGF to Women's March SF on Saturday, Jan. 19

The San Francisco Women's March on Saturday, January 19 is expected to bring many North Bay residents to the city, and Golden Gate Transit and Golden Gate Ferry are ready to get them there.
Golden Gate Ferry will supplement its weekend services with added trips from the Larkspur Ferry Terminal. Added trips will "load and go," meaning that boats will leave as soon as they are full and ready to depart. Boarding will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit our event page for Larkspur Ferry & Sausalito Ferry timetables.
To avoid long lines on event day, ferry riders are strongly encouraged to PURCHASE ROUND TRIP FERRY TICKETS IN ADVANCE from ticket machines located at our Larkspur, San Francisco, and Sausalito terminals. Customers may also use a Clipper card to take advantage of a discounted fare. Clipper cards are available online at, from many Bay Area retail locations (visit Clipper website), from ferry terminal ticket machines, and at our Customer Service Center located at Platform D at the San Rafael Transit Center (hours: weekdays from 7AM to 6PM).
Golden Gate Sausalito Ferry will operate a normal weekend schedule on Saturday, Jan. 19. Golden Gate Tiburon Ferry does not operate on weekends—Blue & Gold Fleet provides weekend service between Tiburon and Pier 41.
Women's March attendees may also ride a Golden Gate Transit bus from Marin and Sonoma counties to San Francisco. Route 30 operates to/from San Rafael via Sausalito; Route 70 operates to/from Novato via San Rafael; and Route 101 operates to/from Santa Rosa via Novato and San Rafael. Combined, these routes operate at least 3 trips every hour to/from the San Francisco Civic Center area, in both directions.
For Golden Gate Transit bus schedules and maps showing bus stop locations, visit our Bus Schedules page. Be sure to click on the "SAT" tab for Saturday timetables, as weekday and Sunday timetables will differ.
Bus fares may be paid on board in cash or by Clipper for a discounted fare and ease of boarding (note: bus riders must tag on and tag off when using Clipper). Clipper cards are available online at, from many Bay Area retail locations (visit Clipper website), from Golden Gate Ferry terminal ticket machines, and at our Customer Service Center located at Platform D at the San Rafael Transit Center (hours: weekdays from 7AM to 6PM).

“Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.” – Clementine Paddleford

And with that advice, I asked my husband to help me learn a classical tune. The recording is available at

We all have to start somewhere. Best place to start is where you are.

Fwd: Campus Project Update

The latest Marin Horizon Head of School has sent an update on the Campus Project.  Despite the fact that I had signed up for updates from the school, I had to send an email to him to ask for the information.

Unfortunately, it was sent as a pdf, and current time, budget and equipment restrictions are limiting our ability to publish the entire letter on this blog.

So, if you would like to read it, I suggest you contact him directly and ask him to send you the letter.

FYI: I first learned of the letter on Nextdoor. I am grateful that at least one neighbor, who sends her children to MHS, is doing what she can to keep us informed.

I will be moving completely out of Homestead soon, so unless you all want to buy our house, and pay me enough to publish this blog between music gigs, it's going to be up to you to keep the lines of communication open. 

Please keep in mind there is no "them," only us. 

Best Regards,
