The San Andreas fault, which runs north-south, is slipping at a rate of about 2 inches (5 centimeters) per year, causing Los Angeles to move towards San Francisco. Scientists forecast LA will be a suburb of the City by the Bay in about 15 million years.

@dyslexia,
That would be ideal for me, assuming we could retain the splendid land in between. I'll be too corruscatingly wrinkly then to even point to the vineyards.

@Cycloptichorn,
This is routine. I understand you are an immigrant to California, and landed in the zone of sophistication and call the place, cringe, Cali. Do you go to Frisco for vietnamese food?

First start with Island on the Land, and then the madman, Mike Davis.

There's a Pho place right up the street from me here in Berkeley which is outta sight. I go into the city for Sushi, shopping and touristy stuff but that's about it.

I enjoy much of Northern California and am in love with San Diego. But L.A. is a stinking, trafficky pit of a city that we up north

I'll read that book, it looks interesting and funny.

@Cycloptichorn,
Hi, Cyclo, you befuddled person.

I'm so old that................

I remember hearing about one, that is one, vietnamese place in SF, for the first time ever.
To have a pho place up the street, watch me swoon.

@ossobuco,
I see I'm being obnoxious, but I, living six years eighty miles south of the oregon border gets not to travel there? The whole northern cal and oregon against CA (i.e., LA) thing is kind of a joke to me as a kid born in LA in '41 with a Santa Rosa, CA dad.

And that is just barely, as I gather my father's family was earlier from Idaho, possibly for minutes - trouble intersecting family story with nailable data.

I am tired of a seeming life long thing about the bright and the dwight, having the swell be from north. There are political differences, but we are not all aligned in some kind of stamp.

There are about the same number of people from San Antonio who say San Anton as there are people from San Francisco who say Frisco.

@roger,
Honey, no one from san francisco calls it 'frisco', nor have any for many decades.
Others have called it Cali, from North Carolina, and, say Texas .

What I say may change, natch. But I await the time 'cali' is somehow cool. I suppose it will happen, snort.

I'm not a geologist, but I forecast that sprawl will do the job within decades.

You should try the Italian place where I had dinner with Cycloptichorn and Soon-To-Be-Mrs. Cycloptichorn. Delicious!

I generally call the place 'California.' It's a pretty name and I only contract it for convenience every now and then.

I'm sure LA has a lot going for it, but I just can't get over the smog. Nope.

@Cycloptichorn,
Eh, I've watched you call it 'cali' from time to time, cyclo. Shape up!

On smog, it's much better than my time there in my youth. I'm an eco fan so I can't just support smog; much as there is a geographic reason for the harboring of it, smog production is challengeable.

@ossobuco,
Oh, and on cringe-oh-philia...

- I remember my father taking me to walk on the land above Trancas restaurant, basically grassy moors.

- I remember Malibu as the same, grassy, although there was stuff going on in the colony. Also remember my last few trips on PCH, as in "what happened"?
Of course, city board stuff happened.


I may think california should replicate italy, re building (no, not mafia wise), but I suppose it's way too late.
