My first column was printed today in the SF Chronicle, under the headline: Pam Peirce; Golden Gate Gardener. It is being fun to write, but the writing of it is taking time from other pursuits. I have been writing answers to enough questions, too, to see me through my trip to see my dad next week. so it feels nonstop at the moment, but it will settle down and leave me time to blog in a week or so. You can find it at wwsfgatew..com. The direct link is http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/05/31/HOGRBJ48RG1.DTL if that works.
