Located in California's East Bay, off Highway 580, is a little known "secret" community. It is called Point Richmond, which is one of the oldest (early 1900's) and famous (World War II, Rosie the Riveter) places in the state and a district of the City of Richmond.

Point Richmond has little to no fog and a temperate climate almost year round. The "Point" as it's called by the residents is filled with colorfully landscaped locations, beautiful old homes as well as...

"BEST KEPT SECRET -- POINT RICHMOND, CA"

Posted 04-30-2012 at 11:48 PM by PassionforLife

Point Richmond has little to no fog and a temperate climate almost year round. The "Point" as it's called by the residents is filled with colorfully landscaped locations, beautiful old homes as well as new luxiurious ones, condos, and lots of affordable rentals. It's a great place to walk being both flat and hilly. One can walk from "historic" downtown to the bay in a matter of minutes. Point Richmond is animal friendly even with chickens and goats seen from time to time....

As it turned out, working full-time and taking classes as I could, it was nineteen...

My Wife went to the varous stores around the area to get paint for the scrap deck, (what else to call it? We made it out of junk lumber-?shelves they ripped out of the store-> from the electrical shop next door, and the owner said it never served a better purpose LOL)...

Wife brought me all the hardware for the new swing she bought from Krogers, and, the bolts are thick enough, I dont have to replace them with stainless steel screws this time. (Last one broke on me a few times,...

An Old Favorite

Posted 04-30-2012 at 10:19 AM by snowduck

Psalm 23:1-3 - 1.The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 2.He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3. he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.The word "Psalms" comes from the Septuagint (the pre-Christian Greek translation of the Old Testament) meaning a poem accompanied by a musical instrument, and the 23rd Psalm has been a favorite with people for many years. I think that even those who don't read the...
