Will I have any problems getting in-state tuition in California?

My boyfriend and I are moving to San Francisco for his work. I'm in the middle of a second bachelor's degree in biochemistry/fulfilling premedical requirements. I'd like to enroll at the City College (community college) for a year and then transfer to a university after I've established residency. This will be fine, right? Have I missed anything that might enable a California university to deny me in-state tuition? [more inside]

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

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]

I've seen the Bridge.

500,000 trees on a golf course?! No way.

There's apparently a golf course near San Jose, CA., well it actually may be closer to Milpitas, but it supposedly has half a million trees. I can't seem to find anything about it or if it even exists. This information is coming from my father who played at this course many years ago (maybe 10-20). [more inside]

Bulgarian CDs in SFO.

Where in the San Francisco/Berkeley area can I get a truly good selection of Bulgarian music? (By which I mean a BulgarianCDs.com-style selection, not the usual Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares stuff. HMV/Tower-type places probably don't apply.)
