‎Last week Vladimir Funk‎ posted this question to  our Facebook page and the responses were interesting. It seems our foggy cold weather didn’t go unnoticed, but neither did our hard working industrious home grown roots! Please feel free to add yours too!

    An old proverb says, “The other man’s grass is always greener on the other side..” To me, our wonderful City of South San Francisco IS “..the other side..” The best of everything can be found in South San Francisco! So that’s my three word description of our City: “The other side!”
