The stars have aligned and I am looking to purchase a new car in the Bay Area.

We have a 1969 VW camper van. We love her. Unfortunately, the previous owners redid the locks horribly and now we have a problem: the back window hatch lock doesn't work, we don't have a key to it that works, and we can't fix it. [more inside]

When I get off BART at the Dublin/Pleasanton station, I often see quite a few people (as many as ten) getting off my train, walking across the platform, and boarding the train that goes the other direction. Dublin/Pleasanton is the end of the line, and there is only one line that goes there. What are these people doing? [more inside]

I'm headed to San Francisco for a week at the end of the month. Work will reimburse up to $190 per night for a hotel. I really want to stay downtown for easier access to restaurants, bars and nightlife. I'm fine with driving to and from the worksite. Which hotel(s) would you recommend?

A friend's mother is coming to town and we're trying to brain storm some beautiful places to take her. The thing is she has limited mobility and tends to get around in a wheel chair. When I think of places to take people it usually involves a hike to something like the Sutro Baths or China Beach, etc, etc. Would love to hear some thoughts!
