Back when it wasn't "Silicon Valley", the Santa Clara valley was a
big agricultural producer. Santa Clara was known for its Italian
prunes, there were orchards along North First Street, and cherry
blossoms would form small mounds in the roadway during spring in
Sunnyvale. This time of year, the valley would be full of the scent
of marinara sauce as the canneries swung into tomato-canning action.
CDC Sunnyvale ops was situatied in the middle of onion fields along
Moffett Park Drive. When the weather turned cool around November,
hordes of crickets would invade the facility and could be found
everywhere--even in second floor offices, in desk drawers, in coffee
Just one more aspect that I don't miss.
