We’re FInally making that overdue trip to Half Moon Bay–our home away. Unfortunately, it’s not because we have the time or brain room to arrange such a getaway. No, it’s because the Saeco certified repair center is in Burlingame, and there’s no time to deal with the post office shipping it there and back. THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!
If you’ve been paying attention, we’re on our second espresso machine. Our two-year old Aroma’s power switch fritzed recently. On a Sunday morning! I’m sure it’s just a quick fix, but there are no certified Saeco repair shops locally. So yeah, we really need a vacation, but it wouldn’t be happening if a beloved member-of-the-family didn’t need a doctor.
So, this morning, I thought I’d check out the up-to-the-minute progress of the Bay Bridge re-re?-repair so we won’t get stuck in Bay Area traffic enroute. And I stumbled across this video explaining the seismic safety innovations. It’s pretty cool. That’s all. I just wanted to share.
