Spider ID and advice

Over the past week or so we've had an influx of spiders, mostly in the second floor of our house. As near as I can tell, they're comprised of daddy long legs and [ARACHNOPHOBE TRIGGER WARNING] these guys. I was hoping some of the more knowledgeable among you could help me identify this species and advise whether we should seek professional help. I'm also curious if anyone has any tips on how to minimize the spider population indoors (unfortunately, peaceful coexistence is not an option due to the feelings of some members of the household).

Looking for a winery with an outdoor restaurant and an attached hotel

Valentine's Day filter: My girlfriend has a relatively specific request for Valentine's Day: "an outdoor restaurant at a vineyard... that has an attached hotel." A somewhat cheaper version of this would be the idea. Ideally, it'd be $300/night or less and somewhere within ~2 hours drive of Palo Alto, California. Any ideas?

Saving on passport photos?

PassportPhotoFilter: I need 15 passport photos, am not finding inexpensive places (in the San Francisco area) or discounts on more than two so I'm looking at the price for two times eight. Am I missing something to think I can get two, go to FedEx Office and copy them on one of their machines for 49 cents per photo? Definitely wouldn't want to ship these things overseas, learn that they are unacceptable. Thanks for thoughts and any tips on bargain places in the SF area.

Drawing Classes in the Bay Area

Drawing classes in San Francisco: Is there anything like the Art Students League in New York (cheaper, start and stop when you'd like) or 3rd Ward — or is it just CCA, SFAI, and the Berkeley Art Extension? I'd like to take a drawing class that is less expensive and less intensive than some of the semester-long offerings at these schools ($400 for 12 wks is the general setup). Any Bay Area mefites have the scoop?

How do I locate the apartment that is safest in a big earthquake?

Moving to the (north) Bay Area of California: How do I best ensure that I (and my assets) survive The Big One unharmed? Eg. What should I look for in an apartment (and why), in terms of geology, design, construction, location, building codes, corner-cutting, etc. to best handle a massive earthquake? Expert or engineer advice would be great. (I'm more interested in how to find an earthquake-proof building and area, than in how to earthquake-proof my stuff once it's inside a building.)

Moving from SF to Silicon Valley - need advice on cars and housing

So I've lived in beautiful San Francisco, California since 2005, but I've recently started a job down in Sunnyvale. I can take Caltrain down there, but it's an hour's trip plus half an hour on either end to get from home/work to the Caltrain station in question. This is not sustainable, so I'd like to move south. I'm 31, single, and a city boy from way back, so moving to The Suburbs gives me pause. Also, I sold the only car I've ever owned back in '05 shortly after I moved here. So I have two questions: [more inside]
