Linda Hubbard Gulker first moved to Menlo Park a really long time ago (long enough that she started kindergarten at Hillview School and graduated there from 8th grade in the days it was a K-8). Following her four years at Menlo-Atherton High School, she went “SoCal” to attend UCLA and stayed too long in the Southland. She moved back to Menlo Park 20 years ago to find some things had changed – and some things remained the same. When she’s not blogging or taking snapshots for InMenlo, she’s jogging the Dish or other nearby hills.
