More on Music and Skating after I have a good time dancing at the Fest, bring your dancing shoes... Oh, and bid on a ride in a Bi Plane ride over Ramona and all over San Diego and do a 360 loop in the air! using a Joy Stick in an open cockpit!.

I have emailed you twice and posted this information on Facebook! What is the problem? Not trying toRead More be unpleasant, just really was excited about getting to use my gift certificate. Is there a communication gap?

endkaos, I doubt Patrick is doing anything out of line, and why post such a comment here?
endkaos March 30, 2013 at 08:42 pm
Really, because I have spoken with investigators for the SEC about what Patrick has done and theyRead More have agreed to review the case.

Ramona's Plumber, you might want to have your tax records reviewed by an independent tax consultantRead More and if you haven't already done so, I suggest you name an independent person has a trustee and not your 'accountant' on your irrevocable family trust. It's just good business practice.

Great Story! Congratulations Don! I just love reading about your life serving others.

I sure wish I'd been able to go see The Thing! My curiosity is killing me!

Sorry to see Craig go, but retired myself, I hope he enjoys every minute of it. He really did aRead More great job, was always available, worked round the clock, etc. He will be missed and hard to replace!! Best of everything to Craig and his family! Charles Teichert Jr.

Gadzooks! The Chamber is without an executive director! This will no doubt cripple the localRead More economy to the point where it will match the national economy. Of course the National Chamber of Commerce is nothing but a political apparatus anyway with the 'good ole boys' looking out for each other and donating cash to the favorite candidates, so we shouldn't make a comparison with the hard-working local Chamber, or should we? The necessity of a Chamber of Commerce calls into question the dynamic nature of capitalism, a system that is largely held to function very well if only we'd leave it alone. That capitalism needs these many Chambers throughout the nation in order to survive makes it seem a rather fragile system. Was Ayn Rand, goddess of the Conservatives, aware of this vital adjunct to capitalism when she touted the virtue of selfishness and her Objectivism? I'll bet the two ladies who will keep the office running will do a great job of keeping the local Chamber humming at least as well as it needs to, given that Capitalism needs no outside assistance to thrive.
Elaine Lyttleton October 31, 2011 at 12:23 am
Someone asked me if I'd consider applying - No, I replied. I saw how hard Craig worked - a toughRead More act to follow! Sure glad to hear he'll still be around Ramona though. We could use his talents on the Ramona HEART Mural Project!

Hello, Julie! I wanted to let you know that JoJo, whom you were so kind as to list on yourRead More adoptable horses page, is now in his forever home! A wonderful home in Ramona came forward, with grass pastures and just the right amount of riding time and an overflowing amount of love and attention on the ground. We're so happy for both JoJo and his new family. Thank you so much for the service you provide through the Patch to connect horses and homes! All the best, Gretchen Davis, Instructor, Helen Woodward Animal Center Therapeutic Riding Program

Religion hasn't intruded enough into human affairs must it inflict its insanity on lower animals.Read More Do the animals experience euphoria or just go forward and sin no more? Does the clown performing this event really hold a serious countenance as he performs his magic? Is "holy water"used,, if a dog immediately shakes the water off does he remain blessed or must he undergo another immersion? I have a cat who, despite being blessed a number of times, continues to kill everything in sight. Does he need a refresher blessing? The cat does look very pious after the kill, so he may be "possessed by Satan which I suppose would call for a more imposing ritual. The answer might lie in the fact that I personally conducted the ritual and as I recall, lacked the usual robes ( I was in my skivvies) and I used simple tap water, (does it count coming out of a hose) but with a water softener so that should count for something in the ethereal arena of blessings. I have a few visiting rattlers and coyotes, one of which must have killed and eaten a blessed animal because he effects a very serene and composed manner as he roams the area looking for something to kill; I'm sure he's unwittingly benefiting from having ingested one or more of the "blessed" and purer ones, then again, he could simply be so far gone in his satanic ways that he's beyond redemption and has accepted his evil lot and is at peace with his sinful ways. Yes, yes, that could explain his composure.

I've turned over and roto-tiled a lot of dirt and not once did I see god's creation. I got a lot ofRead More veggies however and attributed that to my own efforts and no one else's. Does god take credit for the garden's bounty? Does he also take responsibility if the harvest sucks? My garden connects me to weariness and sweat; haven't spotted any god yet. Since when have churches been in the commercial business of renting property? Does this "business" enjoy tax-free status?
