Returning from a week long engagement vacation in San Francisco, I could not help myself not to write about San Francisco. The city where I used to live, and the city I’ve visited many times after, and over and over.

There are less traditional forms of gift baskets available, for example the Time Capsule Gift Basket. This is sure to make for some jealous party guests at the shower with it’s unique music download twist on a normal wrapped present for baby the Mommy-to-be is sure to remember this gift forever.

Decorating the nursery room can be a lot of fun and also educational for your baby. Choose colors or wallpapers with primary colors or soft pastels. You can choose colors that will stimulate your baby or soothe them if it’s a room you plan on using for sleep only. Also, there are certain pieces of furniture that are essential in a nursery. You will need a crib that is safe, sturdy, and reliable. A diaper changing table or a designated area for changing is critical because you will be changing diapers so often. Your baby will also have a lot of toys, blankets, and clothes so organizational pieces such as a dresser or shelves will be very helpful.

I can’t tell you how many “Unknown Artists” I have in my collection or how many “Track 01, Track 02” tunes slog along the paths of my djmaza mp3 collection. Of course, the artists are not unknown.

I have seen plenty of artists make the walk from their bus 2 blocks down Colfax to the venue. Billy Bob Thorton walked right in the front door of the Bluebird and up to the stage. The crowd was surprisingly mellow and respectful and it was an awesome moment. Chris Isaak also came to watch one of his favorite bands at the Bird, and just hung out in the audience and talked to some fans.
