Changing neighborhoods within neighborhoods: San Diego, Calif.

Retired socal dood.
This picture was taken earlier this year. Not exactly in the North Park area, but near it, in San Diego.

Have you reconnected with many people from your grade school recently?

He thougt I'd enjoy how connected the internet can be building nets and bridging gaps from grade school to the present (via facebook, blogs, etc.) Here is an excerpt of the story:

What have you done in your community lately to make a difference? Are you involved in neighborhood activities? Do you say hello to your neighbors, or do you know the corner store workes, owners? - Do share :D

  1. I say hello to my neighbors, walk across the street and have conversations, etc.

    The only corner stores in which I know people by name are the liquor store and Dairy Queen. That probably says something about me...
