    San Francisco sounds like a great place to visit, right Fiona honey? I think that’s where Nancy M filmed the opening sequence to ‘The Division” as she sat across from the Golden Griddle Gate Bridge as Jinny thinking about her life as an alcoholic. What a defining moment in one’s career, right? (ha! ha!). Still watch now and then missed episodes of The Division on Youtube. Still a great show, but still have yet to have seen all of the episodes.
