Do you know the way to San Jose?

dsc08134-22-51-38.JPGLast week I attended the annual Popular Culture Association conference in San Francisco. I also visited San Jose to see the Sarah Winchester House, which was built by the widow of the gun manufacturer to appease/confuse the spirits of those killed by Winchester rifles during the Indian and Civil wars. It has 160 rooms and includes a staircase that leads nowhere and doors and windows that open onto blank walls. But the visual highlight of San Jose for me was the 1950s vintage ‘Pure Pork Sausage’ sign near the railway station.
