Sheila Sabine - Out and About - Do you want to save the bees?

Plant lavender plants this Memorial Day. If you live in Montclair, check out Thornhill Nursery at 6250 Thornhill Drive. This neighborhood nursery has been at the  same creek side location for over 60 years. They offer a wide variety of plants and shrubs and best of all-everything is 50 per cent off this weekend.

Sheila Sabine - Out and About - Neighborhood Farmer’s Market

While driving home on Mandanda Blvd. in the Crocker Highland’s neighborhood, I noticed a sign on the corner which said Farmer’s Market. Since I was actually headed to the grocery store to buy vegetables for dinner  I decided to follow my instincts. It  directed me to a lovely house with another sign in the front yard saying, “Farmer’s Market Organic.” I went to the front porch and found an abundance of kale, lettuce, broccoli, and strawberries. I chose some wonderful items for dinner and left money in the mail slot.  This is a great idea to support growing our own food. 

Sheila Sabine - Out and About - Andy Warhol at SFMOMA

Latest visiting artist-Andy Warhol-SFMOMA

Take the Jack London Ferry to San Francisco, followed by fast Lyft ride to the world famous SFMOMA. The latest feature is a huge collection on three floors of works by Andy Warhol. This well known New York artist was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works span a variety of media including painting, silkscreening, photography, film and sculpture. 

A few of Andy’s memorable quotes:

“A picture means I know where I was every moment. It’s a visual diary.”

“I think everybody should be nice to everybody.”

“You have to do stuff  that average people don’t understand because those are the only good things.”
