JOE WOULD LOVE THIS QUOTE.:
"YOU HAD TO UP YOUR GAME WHEN JOE WAS AROUND!!"
OH! HOW FABULOUS IS THAT??
IN THESE DAYS ; (I WON'T EVEN SAY) WHAT A CALL TO "ELEVATE" YOURSELF! BECOME THE BEST ONE CAN BE! DRESS BETTER; BEHAVE BETTER; MAKE A CONTRIBUTION BETTER!
I THINK THOSE THINGS ARE TOTALLY CONNECTED!
PEOPLE WALKING AROUND DRESSED AS SLOBS.....THINK LIKE SLOBS...BEHAVE LIKE SLOBS!!!. !
PEOPLE WHO "DRESS UP"; FOR WHATEVER REASON.....BEHAVE BETTER!
THEY ARE MORE POLITE; THEY FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES; AND THEY SUCCEED MORE!KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

this brave and lovely state senator from Austin......who had been attacked for years....
(a quote......one fellow senator said (she asked if he had heard her)
He said...."I don't think I can hear women's voices" (he actually said that!) I guess he heard hers last night!
OMIGOD! She makes me so proud!
SHE STOOD THERE FOR OVER 11 HOURS. FILIBUSTERING (UNDER TEXAS STATE SENATE LAWS"
GUESS WHAT? SHE IS EVERY AMERICAN WOMAN'S HERO TODAY!!She is my HERO!!!

The very fact that pesticides were sprayed on "active bees' (when bees are endangered ) is "government gone completely insane!!" (in Goleta!!)
I had a wonderful group of "sustainable gardeners" for a meeting at my house and garden (sustainable; no kill,,,,)
And they taught me; and all of the attendees A LOT!
ps if we don't preserve bees......we (Human beings) will be extinct in less than 100 years!!!!
so I am involved for my grandchildren!
Go grandparents! stand up against pesticides; hormones and antibiotics.......(did you know that 80 percent of antibiotics sold int the USA ARE SOLD and given to animals? Factory Farm animals.this is a fact!
My son-in-law almost died.....(at 50) because of this travesty!
We need to rise up and reclaim the right to "safe food"!
Right now; 90% of our food is "NOT SAFE" And look to the "Food Babe"
Thank God for her! She is beautiful; courageous, and she has passion......and a mission!
How proud of that wonderful woman in Austin last night!
We need to give her a HUGE " SHOUT OUT!!!"
I DON'T KNOW HOW!

I would guess that this is the son of the very talented landscape architect: Sam Maphis. this is heartbreaking!
Sam Maphis, Sr. (sorry, it is the only way to tell it!)Is a welcome face at "Ennisbrook Design Review Board"meetings! (I call us the "taste police" in the subdivision of Ennisbrook.
How tragic that this young man has a mental illness; and he either stopped his medication; or was not getting the right medication!
the good news; The victim survived! Thanks to our local paramedics and ER staff!
I hope this young man is hospitalized soon; and not released until he is no longer a threat to others, I admire his uncle for "taking him in"!
I also understand a family "hoping" a child will "get better"!There is a lesson here:
"denial" does not work in cases like this. It is a complete miracle that this victim survived. This young man needs to be behind bars......for his own protection; and the protection of others!

We are lucky enough to have the most well-trained, courageous, strong and (handsome oops! that doesn't count) firefighters , in the whole country!
Bravo! there are many places in this country where the firefighters would not be ABLE to rescue a beloved dog! Time, rules, who knows what would prevent them!Ours are able, willing, and take such care as to insure the dog did not suffocate during the ordeal by supplying oxygen!!!
My deepest appreciation; and my largest kudos to our absolutely wonderful fire department! True heroes; all of you!
ps my admiration of firemen goes way back. in 1982; our house in Pasadena, California (with my husband and me, and our three daughters; burned down to the ground. ) 5 am my husband woke up with the roof starting to catch on fire. It had been building all night! in the attic (you need a smoke alarm in the attic! all of our smoke alarms worked; but smoke goes up! make sure you have one in the attic!)
Firemen saved 95% of the contents.......95% of the structure lost. Everyone alive (two adults, three pre-teens; two cats, two dogs, one pet rat) alive!! AND almost all of our "contents were saved!!!"!
When the fire was out; those firemen carried all of our "contents" out of our house. Never breaking one single thing!Every single thing! It looked like a "yard sale!"
When we rebuilt our house; I invited the firemen to come to the "Phoenix" party! And they did! They so appreciated seeing the "rebuilt house"; they had never been invited to that before!
I wave and throw kisses! Every time I see a fire engine!
(who the heck is that old bat? I am sure they say!)
They are the BEST!!!)How fabulous you got that picture with that dog! Tears streamed down my face at the wonderful story; and the memories it brought back!thank you!!!
BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!!!!!
