    I grew up in Fremont, but now live in the Santa Barbara area. I miss the north sometimes, most especially San Francisco!

    Hey that is an authentic B&W photo from 1955. Having a mask and a set of flippers were cool.

    Forgive me for reviving an old thread, I'll try not to make a habit of it. ;)

    I was born in Los Altos Hills, the year Alan Shepherd made his first space flight, lived there until I was nine and spent my summers at our little cabin in Alderpoint in Humboldt County. We moved to Hawaii when Dad retired, and I fisrt came to southern Cal to attend Northrop University in Inglewood in 1978, and bounced back and forth from Hawaii to California, spending time in Long Beach and Garden Grove.

    I've been in Tarzana in the San Fernando Valley for nearly five years now, and I work at Glendale Studios in Glendale, just across the street from Forest Lawn.

    Hello-

    I grew up in Sacramento and went to school at UCLA. I moved to the Bay Area immediately after graduation. I've had a house in San Carlos for the past 14 years.

    Same. Birth on.

    I went to the same high school GREASE was filmed at. Not Ridell High. Venice High. It is, however, quite the differenty demographic from Grease, as Rundquist insinuated. 60-70% latino or so. So, yah, holms.
