Don't forget the old guys! If you're not up for the "10-15 year commitment," a senior dog is always grateful for a home, usually very easy to integrate into your household routine. Often they've been someone's companion for many years before circumstances changed and they need a new place... it's sad to know they often won't be with you much longer, but those final years are truly golden.

Kudos to the volunteers!

Agricultural subsidies are critical for keeping farms in our communities. These are the groves and agricultural lands that have helped buffer higher-density residential areas during fires, that feed our families, that keep our county beautiful. Local farms are essential to our food security and environmental health. We would all lose it they were forced out by higher water rates.
To compare doubling a $40 household water bill with doubling a thousands of dollars agricultural bill doesn't, um, hold water. Private residents can reduce water use without reducing their income. Farmers and ranchers can't simply choose to use less water than the crops need without additional consequences.
Golf courses, not so much.

I think part of the point is that there are songs with lyrics that pass for good poetry and that you CAN hear them on the radio. At least for an hour on Monday mornings.
There's not much to like about most commercial radio in town. I'm happy to find a few places of refuge on KCSB.

So, 14noscams is FOR city services like maintenance of our streets and beaches, but AGAINST supporting city employees and unions? Huh.
Kudos to those folks who are willing to put in some sweat equity in their community, in addition to supporting a living wage for city employees.

Lucky italiansurg for being so fortunate in his travels. As for me, I found this app extremely helpful when "bottarga" was listed as an ingredient on a pasta dish. The app explained what it was made of, how it was made, and how it was usually used... very helpful information for a diner without resources to travel to the Mediterranean before selecting a first course.

This is awesome! These awards say something different than "best affordable restaurant"--that's what the "Best Of" awards are for, right? These are fun, delicious, noteworthy.
This is for places that kick butt doing the unexpected.
ALL these winners are doing something worth noting. And lots of others restaurants are too, so unless the world ends in 2012, there will be Foodie awards for many years to come.
