Our family LOVES the one on Mission! We go at all hours to get treats! Like my Mom always said..."a little bit of something good is better than a lot os something mediocre."***MIne is a small "Tart- Gizzeh-no-lid"***I can still ask for it that way and get a small mountain of cream white goodness!Peaberry gives you a teeny tiny dollup in the center of the cup?Huh? And then serves it to you like a tibetan monk,two hands cupped...too weird for me.I love the guy on MIssion too. They are always hoppin. The energy is good. Havin a sucky day? This is the place!

I am the mother of Freshman at SBHS and we are so excited to have John at the High School. I do not know why an editor did not catch the errors in the article above. It kind of makes the paper look stupid...ya know? John will do a great job. Mark did a great job. John was the BEST at the Junior High and the High School is in need of change. But I cannot blame Mark for any of it.
As a "helicopter" parent I can tell you that the "city" that is SBHS presents so many issues on a daily basis. If I were John I would expand his principles from the Junior High to the High School. The High School NEEDS a dress code..flat out.They need more eyes on the students before and after school and all the time in-between. I don't care what anyone says, as long as these kids ages end in "teen" they need supervision.
There was a horrible accident on the SBHS campus this week and I believe if one person had simple said "enough" and taken control, it may not have happened.
Words like "no" and "enough" have to stand for something.These "kids" are KIDS...not adults...not even close.I hear and see so much desperation,confusion,girl on girl bullying, boy on boy bullying...a general lack of self esteem in many cases. And I KNOW the teachers and admin are "under it"...under-funded,over works,large class sizes...they are way under it.I don't think Mark did anything wrong.I think he was perhaps buried.
I think John has an eye for the specific issues at the high school.Fresh eyes.He knows what he sees and he SEES A LOT.
When we first met I was soooo blown away by this guy.Cool as a cucumber. He could easily be doing something else for way more money. But he has a gift for this.He had me at hello!I wrote about him 2 years ago...and I still see in John what I saw the first time we met...A Sensei, a Master...a Mensche..a good man!
He has ideas about classrooms and teaching that sing to this mothers heart.So now that I am "in" the high school ...for the next 7 years. I am glad we have a new captain.A very "Zen" Captain!

So when tourists go swimming in the slough what do you do? Do you tell them and risk being told..F*** You or do you try to explain to them that in a few hours their kids and dogs will have pink eye or an ear infection.
There has been a group not only are kids and dogs playing in the the slough, but literally going under the water. The Hammonds slough ***looks*** like a creek flowing into the ocean and instead we know the powerful bacteria,pesticides and fertilizers flush out to sea. Why not put a sign that suggests not getting in the water at the Hammonds or Hendrey's or any beach where water is flowing into the sea.I just don't know how well educated and clearly these people had money, could not know about the slough.They were jerks as well...just rude and took over at the beach I like. No sense of proportion or control in their group. Just thoughtless. But I feel bad for the kids and dogs that were in the ***still and slimey water***.

We lost Gil Robbins and Mary Robbins this month. Gil was an original member of the ORIGINAL "Highwaymen".."Michael Row Your Boat..." was #1. Gil ran a coffee house in Greenwich.Gil and Mary died less than two weeks apart this month. In that way that folks who often love each other so deeply do.
Their son,Tim Robbins,just released his first album in the fall...this business of "folk music" is ALL about legacies and love...all kinds of love...love of the land, of people, justice,peace and equality. It is humanity poetically depicted in music.Slange.

There is a "Lo-Jack" type device for people with dimentia and other disorders that cause memory loss. It has a GPS locator that is worn by the patient, a second device is at the persons home and a third is with local emergency agencies.Should be standard issue for all who are diagnosed with any of the many diseases,TBI's and disorders that cause temporary or permanant memory loss.

Malibumom and Malibudad is this a "Catfish".This is getting weirder by the minute. You guys comment from either side of the aisle.Are you a couple?
I heard about this guy at dinner last weekend. He is working within the recover community as well.How freaking scary. No one is safe from crazy.I hope Mr Kunes gets locked up for a good long time.Help? Well I am note sure. You have to be willing to get help.He sure has burned all his bridges on this coast I would say.He really tried to mess with really well liked people too.Real sociopathic behavior.
