The Best Housewarming Gift: Three-hour Gift Certificate



EasterKerry On: A Gift Certificate

Frank M. gave his best friend “Me” as a housewarming present.
Well, he actually he gave her three hours of my time/talent
for packing and preparing before the movers were to arrive.

Moving Experiences

Janet T. was moving from a huge loft South of Market to a much smaller place in Laurel Village.
In preparation to sell her condo she needed to get things wrapped, packed, labeled, and staged and ready to put on the market.
In tandem, we packed up three vast closets and the pantry which was filled with copious cooking utensils – it was like a mini Williams-Sonoma store.

Janet T  promptly saw the advantage of teamwork and my organizing skills and signed up for an additional five hours.

Mission accomplished!

Kerry On:

I’ve shopped, shipped, wrapped, recycled, delivered, deciphered, trained, hired and fired.

My clients request myriad tasks: I’ve picked up laundry, groceries, documents,  meals, organized complicated Expense Reports and researched Car Insurance for a busy Executive.

I’ve delivered documents to City Hall and hired a Property Manger in Chicago.
I’ve arranged, assembled, shred, and sorted. Closets, cupboards, garages and drawers – are all in my repertoire.
I don’t do windows, I don’t do floors – but I know who to hire to do get things done.

Kerry On Daly  – Your Personal Assistant – so you can carry on and have more fun.  What can I do for you?

photo_8735_20081228

You’re busy.

You don’t have time to pick up the groceries, laundry, tickets, prescriptions and mail.

You would love to stock the pantry, cupboards, and refrigerator…
and the linen closet…

You really want to go to the Container Store to buy the necessary items to organize those three closets…

You wish you could return the library books and videos on time, mail the packages to your family and get your shoes repaired. Yesterday.

“Kerry On” – Your Personal Assistant specializing in short-term projects, tasks, jobs, solutions, chores and jobs.

You vowed to eat healthier in the New Year... yet, the ‘grab and go’ meals in the black boxes seem to be the fastest – certainly, not the best solution.

I’ll save you from circling the block looking for that illusive parking place;  liberate you from standing in line at the post office, pharmacy, cleaners, ticket office and at Safeway,  Whole Foods, Costco, Wine Impressions, Target…

Call me: Kerry on – so you can CARRY ON

Time travel to San Francisco 1968 – watch “Bullitt”

SONY DSC

Tonight, watch the famous film, Bullitt -  True Time Travel to San Francisco 1968

So you think you know San Francisco?

The first 12-minutes of the movie include Nob Hill, Union Square, Steve McQueen in green paisley pajamas making coffee -the 1968 way- and the snappy chatter and the patois of a high society tea party – replete with mink stoles, suits and everyone in hats, “Can you grow roses in Sausalito?” “In Orinda we have dry sunshine,” Coffee Cantata, Powell Street phone booths, Enrico’s and doormen at the Mark Hopkins.  It’s a romp and pure time travel.

Play “Name that Street”

How many teen age boys – and men- attempted to replicate the famous San Francisco car chase? SFPD knew a lot of them…Where did the car chase finally end up?

Kids from Class of 1968 – St Rose, Mercy, Burke’s Lowell, SH and SI -think they are pretty smart cookies when it comes to “The City.”  Name the structure being built on California street? Where was Coffee Cantata? Henry Africa’s? Where did Frank Bullitt live? Name the terminal at SFO where Bullitt gets his man?

NOTE: McQueen based the character of Frank Bullitt on famed San Francisco Inspector Dave Toschi, with whom he worked prior to filming. McQueen even copied Toschi’s unique “fast draw” shoulder holster.

Toschi later became famous,  as the lead San Francisco investigators of the Zodiac Killer murders …which stuck fear in the hearts of San Franciscans – and gave us pause with regard to walking around Union Square at night.

“I hope I go to Heaven, and when I do, I’m going to do what every San Franciscan does when he gets there. He looks around and says, ‘It ain’t bad, but it ain’t San Francisco.’   Herb Caen
