The red, white and blue tiles installed decades ago are "based on geometric forms that represent the 'Crossroads of the World,'" he added.The decision comes in the wake of the deadly rally over a Robert E.

Monday Mar 13, 2017
“The NoPa achieves a new level of modern sophistication and urban luxury in one of San Francisco’s most coveted neighborhoods,” said Bernie Katzmann of Vanguard Properties, who is co-listing the penthouse at 1811 Turk St. with fellow Vanguard agent Mike Shaw. Dolomite counters and slab backsplashes soften the stainless steel appliances. The robust stone provides visual punch against the sleek, shiny white cabinetry. A 20-inch-deep soaking tub is in the penthouse’s other bathroom, ensuring that guests experience luxurious amenities as well. The listing includes parking and bicycle storage, as well as solar panels and in-unit laundry. Cat-6 wiring supports the security system and audiovisual components, while a gas fire pit calls for company on cold nights — especially when music wafting from the deck’s speakers sets the mood. Natural light provides much of the home’s illumination, though designer fixtures teeming with LEDs await their opportunity to shine. Wide tiles lining the terrace underscore the abundance of private outdoor space. The bustling community of boutiques, commuters, tech workers and plenty of dining spots surrounds the Divisadero Corridor. Features: A wraparound deck awaits on three sides of this two-bedroom penthouse crowning a chic and sunny seven-unit development in NoPa.

- Unearthing the mystical past in misty Wales
By John Flinn - Thursday Aug 10, 2017
[...] they seem quite happy to be out of sync with modern times. Flanked by mysterious hills dotted with druid stones, Celtic crosses and more than a few King Arthur legends, this corner of Pembrokeshire exudes the aura of timelessness and myth for which Wales is renowned. If you come here it will likely be to walk the resplendent Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which, justifiably, has become one of the area’s biggest draws. Walk through the front door of the Dryffryn Arms pub in the village of Pontfaen — known locally as “Bessie’s” — and you’ll feel you’ve instantly stepped back 75 years in time. The pub, sparsely furnished with benches and a quarry-tiled floor, is the front room of the home of proprietor Bessie Davies, 87, who’s been serving thirsty customers here since King George VI sat on the British throne. The only libation here is Bass ale — the flat, room-temperature version — poured from jugs filled directly from the barrel. Above Cwm Gwaun, the brooding Preseli Hills are the setting for many of the ancient Welsh tales collected in a book called the Mabinogion, which calls the region “the Land of Mystery and Magic.” Amid the heath and wild moorland are druid temples, burial chambers — and, at a semicircle of imposing stones called Beddarthur, the purported final resting place of King Arthur himself. Some have been pressed into service as fence posts, others fitted with top pieces to resemble a Spinal Tap-sized Stonehenge. Standing beneath the outcrop of natural pillars of dolerite and rhyolite, it certainly looks the part. [...] it leaves you scratching your head why the ancient builders didn’t just assemble the monument here, rather than dragging the 2-ton slabs more than 150 miles over hill and dale to the Salisbury Plain. Trace your finger along the A40 highway across the peninsula, and you’ll notice that the place names to the north are clearly Welsh (such as Llanddewi Belfry) and those to the south are distinctly English (Redstone Bank, Princes Gate). Oxford scientists tracing DNA in Pembrokeshire recently reported “unexpectedly stark differences” on either side of the line, with those to the north exhibiting classic Celtic markers and those to the south Anglo-Saxon versions.
