I believe it was the day after we picked up Miley, the new kitten, that I looked outside and noticed a mama cat with her babies.  *sigh*  Of course, have to take action (waiting on a surgery date for mama, have caught 3 of the 5 babies so far). Rhiannon has a gift with animals.  She had the job of taming our two (now giant) cats when we first got them.  She has these 3 purring and playing and generally tearing up her room like kittens should.  Miley is happy because when she jumps on one of our giant cats, they just keep walking and ignore her.  Now she has someone to play with! Do you think we're in trouble? I was talking to one of the dads at school waiting for Rhiannon and he mentioned that he was looking for a cat.  Hello, sir!  I can help you out! So for an update:  We have fleas, ...

There was a crowd of people October 19th at the Black Diamond Chevron Ethanol station right at the intersection of Willow Pass and Evora Road which just opened in Concord, Califorinia. The county of Contra Costa is mandated to use alternative fuels but until now there was no place to get it.  Chevron has opened the station here, the only public station in the Bay area, but it is one of 1802 such alternative fueling stations nationwide.  The number of ethanol stations grew 28 percent  in 2008.  And per the state of California there are approximately 500,000 flexible fuel stations in California.    At this point all cars are not able to use the corn- based ethanol, to see if a car can utilize the fuel go to www.e85fuel.com/index.php  The prediction is that by the end of 2009 there will be...

I recently stood up at an office meeting and said that banks were putting out "dirty titles". Others didn't haven't had the same experience. I defended my perspective a bit and recounted my experience with the auction people and the their terms. No big deal. Non-confrontational, just a great meeting where people were sharing experiences and information.   Well, I just got stung big-time, and it's a big deal (to me). MLS listing. We bid over asking price. Came into position 1. Listing agent sent me the following addendum. The last paragraph on page 1 states "PROPERTY WILL BE CONVEYED BY GRANT, SPECIAL, LIMITED, QUIT CLAIM, OR A BARGAIN AND SALE DEED." I am the buyer. I had to respond that I would accept only a warranty deed with ALTA title. Listing agent did not respond to e-mail, voice ...

Dear Friends, The RCC's Contra Dance for No on 8 is this Saturday night. Our opponents in Contra Costa County are outspending and out organizing the LGBTQ Community (today a caller reported that our opponents have started door to door canvassing leaving their campaign materials at every home they visit). I need your help promoting this event and mobilizing our community. Please take a moment and forward this e-mail to someone who would be interested in attending Saturday's event or who might make a donation to help RCC purchase more No on 8 Materials.

"Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to self-reliance for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melting away." - Mahatma Gandhi These are my babies, my daughter and nephews.   I cannot imagine having to look into any of these faces and say, "I'm sorry, baby, we don't have anything for dinner tonight."  "I'm sorry baby, we don't have any apples left for snack." "I'm sorry baby, we just don't have anything for your empty tummy." "I'm sorry baby..." I have tears in my eyes even thinking of it.  I cannot...
