My first real job was with a company located on Mora Drive back in 1977-1981, fresh from High School. My mother worked there too, as did several friends.


I wonder where Mtn. View managers expect businesses to locate and jobs for us regular folks to grow when they keep turning sites like these into tiny dense-packed homes and glass office buildings? China? That's one heck of a daily commute.

Would be nice to have maps incorporated with town stories.
