Before the year 1998 two decades ago we were wondering what is the dome-like new building is for. Soon we figure it out the old ‘Tech Museum’ shifted in the new building.
They open the doors on mango and azure building to inspire innovators.
It is been 20 years now. The ‘Tech Museum’ is growing every day. We use the membership to learn new Bay area technology:)

California is drought-free now

According to the National Drought Mitigation Center,”California is drought-free. Storms continued to pile on snowpack and fill California’s water reservoirs over the past week, pulling even more of the state out of drought”.

We have seen hail in the year 1997. After 22 years again in 2019, hail was reported in San Jose, California. I barely remember, I guess in the month of June 1997(Don’t remember the month).
I am not exactly sure. We were talking with our friends about weather in the Cupertino. That the thing I remember.

Two or three more times we had hail storm in between 1997 and 2019.

The Flintstone House

According to Stark Insider and CBS local ,” The Flintstone House, an iconic fantasy land located just HILLSBOROUGH, south of San Francisco.

Owner Florence Fang chats with Loni Stark about re-visiting her youth and the joy of the famed Flintstones television series, the 5 massive dinosaurs towering over the backyard, and why there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to the mushroom”.
There’s trouble in Bedrock. The infamous “Flintstone house” in Hillsborough has gone through some visible changes over the last year and a half, but some neighbors and city officials are not happy with the new additions.

“I don’t like the way she did the back yard, this is Hillsborough, not an amusement park,” said area resident Kathy Park, who lives down the street.

We used to go for the pumpkin patch or Christmas tree lot.
It was the huge empty parking lot with the side street had a sign “Silicon Valley”.
When construction people started building something. Everybody was guessing what it will be.
We knew what it will be but, exactly what kind of office, hotel, cinema.
The scientists and engineers who worked at 391 San Antonio Road in Mountain View, California, laid the technological and cultural foundations for today’s Silicon Valley.
