We need to not let the prejudices of the media prejudice us. We need to question everyone, ourRead Moregover nment included. We need to reach out and meet people different than ourselves so we can get to know them. We need to teach our children that they don't have to like anyone, but it should be on the basis of the individual's behavior. I was raised Jewish and I am appalled by something that someone said to me at the gym. It displayed total disregard for the hundreds of people who died in the plane crash because "I only care about Israel". This is tribalism at it's worse, one of the main causes of war right now on this planet. If we don't learn from what has happened in the pass then there is no value in remembering.

Past, oops!

It's nice to care, but in this case, it really isn't going to do any good. The only possibleRead Moresolutio n to this issue would be if a million Israeli's had children with a million Palestinians and those only those families were allowed to live in Gaza. Other than a thorough blending of genetic material, there is no solution to the problem. It would probably be best to find a cause close to your heart and home, for which you can actually effect change. Thank goodness there are still caring people in the world.

How ironic. Someone being 'rewarded' for their excellence by being shipped away forcibly from theRead Morejo b they love. One of the reasons I left teaching. Step up Alameda Community and do what is best for the teacher AND the students who want him to stay at Encinal.

If you pay off your home, then you no longer have mortgage interest to deduct. Therefore youRead Moreprobabl y won't have an enough itemized deductions. Real estate taxes won't be deductible. I know someone that paid off their home early. They got hit with the dreaded alternative minimum tax.

I think it may be a different driver for those missing deliveries.

That does seem a little suspicious. It doesn't hurt to notify UPS. That or buy a security camera.
LBS July 18, 2014 at 02:36 PM
Yes, they've been notified and have opened an investigation.

What a cool thing! I signed up. But, one thing: do you have cats?
Morgan July 17, 2014 at 01:22 PM
I do have a cat :( But I put her in her room and shut the door :) I am also going to have aRead Moreprofessi onal cleaner come by a day before and deep clean. We have wood floors (carpet in the bedrooms only) and leather chairs in the dining room. I'm sorry about that :/
Linda Castellani July 17, 2014 at 01:36 PM
I think that the deep cleaning will probably help, so I want to come anyway! (It's not theRead Morepresence of the cat that's a problem, but all the hair and dander that the cat leaves around, which the cleaning will take care of. Yay!) And the thing is, I like cats, and I always feel bad when I can't give them the skritches they ask for.
