  1. I am a casual but regular observer. I have never seen a walnut creek in Walnut Creek. Did anyone explain why they do this? Was there a good walnut harvest this year? Is that a walnut tree at Tiffany & Co in the photo? Well, I guess, a good party requires no explanation! March on. March on.

    • @David – Anyone else remember all those Walnut groves? And that open land? Or are we so old now we’re just getting it confused with California in the 1850s?
