Why would you start a thread that is so obviously a subset of the already existing thread: "The things I remember about Palo Alto while growing up:"? Just keep adding to that thread with this posting would've kept the info all in one place. Look at how many duplicate "Teacher party drinking" threads got started this last week.

By the way, the thread: "The things I remember about Palo Alto while growing up:" is one of the most pleasureable reads in a long time. Let's encourage others to add to it.

This is America, you start any thread that you like. I grew up in Midtown, but I had to ride my bike across Embarcadero to get to my grandma's place at Cowper and Addison as well as Rinconada Park and University Ave.. I always loved the older part of Palo Alto. When I began to drive, that narrow place where Embarcadero goes under the tracks before getting to Town and Country always made me focus hard on driving.
