Family photos: Mother's day at Brennan's


Here's my great new recipe for surviving Mother's Day --
take your family to Brennan's and keep feeding them corned beef sandwiches and Irish coffees. Works every time.

Remember Brennan's Irish Pub and Hofbrau? In West Berkeley, down by the train station? We all used to go there back in the 1970s. We'd spend our mornings at the Med and our evenings at Brennan's, down by the railroad tracks in West Berkeley. We were so young and cool back then. And now we bring our grandchildren to Brennan's for Mothers Day.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

And my sweet hippie baby who grew up experiencing a whole rainbow of wonders that was Berkeley back in the day? She rebelled and became a Yuppie. How heart-breaking is that!

Want something good to read? Buy my book! "Bring Your Own Flak Jacket: Helpful Tips for Touring Today's Middle East," available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. http://www.amazon.com/Bring-Your-Own-Flak-Jacket/dp/0978615719/ref=cm_pdp_rev_itm_title_1. It's like if Jack Kerouac, Mark Twain and/or Janet Evanovich went to war.

I also wrote a book about going on Hajj (also included as a chapter in "Bring Your Own Flak Jacket," but this book is cheaper -- but it's worth buying them both!) My book on the Hajj is so outstanding that I bet even Christian fundamentalists will love it! Please buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Mecca-Hajj-Lessons-Islamic-School/dp/0978615700/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1238806637&sr=1-2
