The Adventure Continues… Pyramid

Join Huell as he learns about the sometimes-controversial history of this California landmark and gets a very special tour, including a vertigo-inducing trip to the very top of the spire which is set against the San Francisco skyline… This is another one of my favorite episodes — partly because I enjoy watching just about anything to do with San Francisco.  It’s […]

Memory Monday, Week 1

This week I want to see buildings of where we all work.  Big skyscrapers, factories and  huge warehouses that store commercial products or edible foods.
