Yay, let's get rid of the "White Latinos" whilst we are at it as well!
Basically, Stoney stay out and Devious Get out!

Yeah Stone, you light skinned Latina. You no welcome here.

Sorry, man. Just idiots we don't need more of, regardless of their attempts to idiotically play a race card where none plays.

No Cali,
No Frisco,
Just hit the streets,
And go!

Contrary to what racists might try to tell you, stupidity is colorblind.

"You no welcome here?"

Tom,
Is this the way you think all latinos speak? Are you stereotyping latinos?
You are calling out racists who are also colorblind idiots in your post.
Irony at it's finest.

I do not think Steve Brooks would have you represent The Magic Café as a
staff member in that manner.

Nope, like the rest of everything anyone, beside you, has posted here, it has nothing to do with your skin or your ethnicity.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Thank you so much for that Senior Tommy.
I had a nice chuckle at that.

I for one welcome you with open arms Senior Stone
when and if ever the time comes, no matter what you talk like.

In spite of what one person may say, millions of Californians
use Cali in place of California...in So-Cal(Southern California) moreso.
We're a bit more casual down here in So-Cal.

Don't forget today is 16 de Septiembre, Mexican Independence Day!
Arriba Mexico!

I was just going to post a "Happy Mexican Independence Day!" thread. I suspect that most Americans who are not of Mexican descent think that May 5 is Mexican Independence Day.

Gotta admit it: I'm homesick. That's the real problem. But that's for another thread, I suppose.

In Mexico it is a holiday, Mexican Independence Day that is. The Spanish finally driven away. It is actually a very big deal in Mexico.

Cinco de Mayo is to Mexico what the Eighth of January is to the United States. The former commemorates the Mexican victory over the French in 1862 in the Battle of Puebla, while the latter marks the 1815 US victory over the British in the Battle of New Orleans. (Commemorated in the old fiddle tune "Eighth of January," later recorded by Johnny Horton as "The Battle of New Orleans.")

Neither is related to their respective independence days.

As I've said, I've considered moving to California. (When I was a Navy Brat, we lived at 3810 S. J Street in Oxnard California. It might be significant that, except for my current address, I can't remember any other address I've lived at. Virginia, New York City, Queens, Newport or Providence, the Oxnard address sticks in my head!

However, I don't really have a foundation that would support me in such a move and we have to keep in mind that California is experience massive wildfires, drout and recession. I don't think I'd do well there.

I did consider asking if there was a Wal Mart in the area that could hire me, but I know for a fact I couldn't live on that.

That is EXACTLY what happened to us. We are not only happy, but freaking out with happiness. So the fantasy began with the question: what would you do if you won the lottery and could do anything. And the answer was that we would live in Sebastopol California,

But we didn't win the lottery.



I'm excited to report that two weeks ago, we had one of the drawn numbers on our lotto ticket. Last week we had two, and this week we had three out of the six. Given that trend, I'm expecting to win in three more weeks...

I worked a year in Silicon Valley. Lived in Los Gatos. On the positive side, best weather I've ever experienced. The house we were renting didn't have a furnace or air conditioning because neither were ever needed. there was never any humidity and it would cool off at night when the sun went down, and it never got cold enough to need a heater. A couple of days we used the wood stove for some extra heat but it was onlty a few days out of the year.

Downside: it was a terrible place for my kids and wife. We were used to the east coast where all the neighborhood kids played together and no one had fences. In California, at least in Los Gatos, no one talked to their neigbors. Every house was fenced off. No one was interested in culture, the way they are in New York. Main topic of conversations were stock options and real estate prices. The traffic was insane. 15 miles could take an hour to travel. Real estate prices were insane. Plus you can't get a decent bagel or pizza.

I'm much happier living on the east coast.

I wouldn't live there. It doesn't sound like a neighborhood, just a bunch of houses.

I lived in the Oxnard/Port Hueme (sp) area. If I moved back, I would try for that area again.

But I still don't think it would be practical.

You'd need a really long subway!

Good thing I don't really care for sports.
