I'm trying to trade money for education

I would like to take a graduate level class or two this Fall in San Francisco. I have a job, so I'd like my classes to be in the evenings and on weekends. I don't really care about getting credit or a degree, and I realize I'm far too late for formal Fall admissions. What kind of educational options exist for me? [more inside]

Identify song about "trees on their knees" from a 1990s mixtape

Please help identify a song, or a band that played it - lyrics are below. It was on a now long-dead mixtape made in the mid-90s by a San Francisco resident, so I've always thought it was a San Francisco or Northern CA band, but could be wrong. The singer was female, an alto, IIRC, devoid of vibrato; the band had a pair of violins and a couple of acoustic guitars and employed different tempos within this song. The lyrical focus was ecology.

Where should I get a poster framed in San Francisco?

Can you recommend a framer in San Francisco? I am going out there at the end of May for my aunt's 60th birthday, and the present I'd like to give her is a large poster, framed. I do not wish to travel with the framed poster, nor ship it already framed, so I was thinking I could contact a good framer out there, ship the rolled poster in a mailing tube, and pick it up when I arrive in SF. Does this sound like a good plan, and who would you recommend?

Help me and my new family sign a lease in SF

San Francisco RentFilter: Just had a kid and now me and wifey want to upgrade to a 2 bedroom. I'm worried a little about housing discrimination - it seems there's a financial incentive for landlords to avoid renting to new families. Is it legal for a landlord to ask a prospective tenant about kids? If so, how bad is it if the prospective tenant lied about it? Baby is a couple months old fyi.

Did any company in SF ever sell out and have to share profits with their landlord?
