Most were happy. Some were very well written and added to the positive aura of the page. What I notice is what so many noticed, that these were shots of people having fun skating. I hope today's kids are having as much fun as safely as these. And notice how many adults are in on the fun too.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/great-gallery-fun-roller-skating-photos-san-francisco" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/great-gallery-fun-roller-skating-photos-san-francisco#comments 1970s 1980s United States of America (USA) California (CA) Golden Gate Park outdoor quad roller skating roadskating roller skating San Francisco CA skating North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1311 Fri, 11 Mar 2011 09:32:58 +0000 roadskater 1311 at http://roadskater.net Fresh Snow, Dreams Deferred, Two Young Friends of Decades Past, President Obama, the United States, and the Inauguration of 2009 http://roadskater.net/fresh-snow-dreams-deferred-two-young-friends-decades-past-president-obama-united-states-and-inauguration-2009 After some days of often solitary study, testing, learning, failures and some successes (think Ubuntu Server, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Nginx, lighttpd, Memcache, Varnish, Squid, Alternative PHP Cache), I drifted to sleep as though it were the night before Christmas. Would there be snow? Would there be joy? So I awoke early on Inauguration Day 2009 with anticipation, and yes, my world had been treated to a fresh forgiveness of snow outside. <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">United States Capitol </span> <span class="locality">Washington</span>, <span class="region">District Of Columbia</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="38.889815">38° 53' 23.334" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-77.009949">77° 0' 35.8164" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=38.889815+-77.009949+%28%2C+Washington%2C+DC%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Washington%2C+DC&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
