πŸ₯œπŸž I learned recently that the Walgreens on Webster Street in Alameda used to be the original Skippy Peanut Butter manufacturing plant (1932 -1974) πŸ€“. πŸ₯œπŸž Skippy is one of my favorite commercial jingles EVER! 🎡🎢 "I know my mama loves me.. how do I know? Cuz my Skippy shows me so... She gives me love that I can see... Cuz mom knows SKIPPYYYY's good for me!" πŸ™‚ 🎡🎢 #Ala#AlamedaHistory #Alameda #BayAreaHistory #BayAreaFunFacts #AlamedaFunFacts #BayAreaFacts #Skippy #SkippyPeanutButter #RosefieldPackingCompany

It’s FUN FACT FRRRRIIIIDDDAAAYYYYY I know it sounds like a contradiction but you have to cut your hair in order for it to grow. If you don’t, yoyr split ends just keep going up and up your beautiful locks or they just break off cause they’re depressed πŸ™ Don’t let that happen! If I get a message from the other side because you are in denial, we will have to have a serious talk 😜 #theheadbrowincharge #funfactfriday #instavid #instavideo #bay#bayareafacts #bayarea #instagay #funny #knowledge #ouijaboard #spirits #otherside #deadhair #nobuebo

"Red Triangle". Monterey Bay to Bodega Bay and out to these islands. This is where great whites love to feed. 11% of world wide attacks. Pretty impressive. #k9lifecoachingpresents #greatwhite #redtriangle #bayareafacts #bayareahistory #oceanlife #facts #funfacts #science #stopandthink #marinelife #islands #sanfranciscobayarea

Mount Diablo, located in Contra Costa County, sits at 3,849'. It holds an interesting title of being the second highest peak with which you may view most of the earths surface. Mt. Kilimanjaro holds the number one spot. Since 2005 a gentleman has been petitioning the federal government to change the name citing offense of religious beliefs... To this day, he has been unsuccessful. Finally, due to geologic compression and uplift, the mountains summit features Jurassic and Cretaceous era oceanic rocks that have been exposed to the environment due to weathering and erosion. To this day, Mt. Diablo continues to grow by a few millimeters each year. #funfacts #bayareafunfacts #bayareafacts

Upon Lillian H. Coit's passing in 1929, she left 1/3rd of her estate to the city with a request to beautify the city, "I have always loved." In 1933 the 210' tall Coit tower was erected. Although Lillie was an honorary fire fighter with the Knickerbocker Engine Co. #5, any resemblance the monument has to a fire hose is purely coincidental. This ones for you @candidlycris. #bayareafacts #funfacts #avgeek #theviewfromuphere

Looking east over San Francisco, the Transamerica building casts a long shadow along Columbus Ave. At 853' tall the Transamerica building was the tallest building in San Francisco. By 2017 the new Sales Force building will tower over the Transamerica building by 217'. Upon its completion, the Sales Force building will be the tallest building west of Chicago at 1070'. #bayareafacts #funfacts #avgeek
