How many watering holes does Sebastopol need?
From: jerichsalud     
Posted: February 18, 2019, 7:37 pm
Walking around the Barlow today and saw signs for a new cidery across from the Crooked Goat, just down from the way from Seismic Brewing, next to a couple tasting rooms, and around the corner from the new Fern Bar down the ways from the distillery. Along with the Star, Hopmonk, and Main Street Saloon, sure looks like there are plenty of places to find a drink in Sebastopol. Maybe too many?

If they're successful, then the customers don't think there are too many, even though we might not agree.

I have been trying to follow this thread..but I do think that the need of walkable downtown mixed age affordable housing is something so important to the growth of Sebastopol that I don't know if I could put a $ sign on it. The hospital is very valuable. I t does not need to be demo'd just re-purposed. ..Why not sell flats like in Europe? The resident puts all kitchen.appliances,flooring in and when they leave they take it all! Folks use some imagination and start thinking just a little outside the box.. Has anyone put a pencil to cash flow to having the units rented or purchased? I say keep it and create..If you sell you will be sorry because it gives nothing back to the community., Our community needs housing! Less cars and more walkability

Dear Sister~

Do you need any male slaves to help out... take out the trash, move furniture, car jockeys, stuff like that? I know of one or two.

luscious way to spend the day
July 21st, 2014

“Osmosis Spa is a pleasure to explore, get pampered, relax in, and just be. The atmosphere inside is gracious, simply luxurious, and aromatic. The cedar enzyme baths turn your muscles to butter. The gardens are meditative, artistic and soothing. Lose yourself in this lovely world of pleasure and healing.”

Ivy Hawthorne Therapeutic Bodywork and Tantra Yoga
West Sonoma County


I love connecting with people. I especially love deeply connecting, nurturing, and helping you to heal on all levels. From a tired, sore body full of aches and pains; to a weary heart full of arrows and old, sad stories that have caused your spirit to close. I want to be there for you, bear witness to your darkened places, and warm them with love and care.

I offer my heart and all the skills that I have mastered over the years. Experiencing a Healing Session with me, what you will receive combines dozens of Bodywork styles and Spiritual and Emotional Healing traditions tailored to exactly what you need in that moment. To uplift you and maximize your healing is my deepest desire. You are that important to me.

Wanted: Seeking Housing ASAP -  500-1000
From: ericspi10      Posted: February 18, 2019, 2:09 pm
hello all,

i am an intern at the dhyana center, studying ayurveda and other health modalities, and soon will be signing up for massage school in the bay area. im also learning the cello and tai chi - so, really a full-time adult student, currently. for fun i seek out opportunities to sing and dance with other people, and i spend significant time in the kitchen preparing food. so sometimes im not hardly home and sometimes i'll be around a full day or two to replenish. in the previous several years i have focused on land-based activities, such as natural building, permaculture, ancestral/"primitive" skills, farming and otherwise. im a 31 year old male praying for the ancient ways to be a human in love with life and mother earth.

i have lived in bodega for the past 7 months but my landlord wants to give the house to their daughter. i have until april 1st to move out, so my ideal move-in elsewhere is anytime before then, with sooner being better. i seek, ideally, a home with ample sunlight to grow food and herbs in a garden space (and to deter west county mold growth), and is out away from town where i'm more likely to hear birds and frogs than a neighbor's lawnmower. wood-fired heat is a huge bonus, so is a body of water to dip in - while i'm envisioning! my budget is flexible, as stated, really depending on what the offering is, from a room in a home to a stand-alone unit. and while i can't commit to leading major projects on the land while my schedule is still settling, i certainly would like to participate in them and can offer my experience, as applicable.

*i'm also open to heading/participating in the rental of a multi-room home and finding other lovely roommates*

if you have or know of something that's *similar* to what i'm looking for, let's open a conversation in email. thank you for reading!

in gratitude,

Thanks to GaiaSophia, I've realized that I didn't make it clear that
Maybe even got a few saplings lined up to plant...

Go for it!

Some things to consider: Searches don't plant trees, only ad clicks do. Personally, I rarely click on ads. How about you?

Here are a couple of reviews from Quora members:

Jurjen van der Laan, studied at Wageningen University
Answered Jun 26, 2018

"Ecosia is owned by Microsoft. With Ecosia you’re using the search engine of Bing. This search engine is not entirely powered by green energy. Google is powered entirely by green energy. Besides that, Google is far more efficient, you have to search less times on Google than on Ecosia, which reduces the use of energy. Therefore, with Ecosia you still have a big impact on the environment, which can’t be compensated with planting trees. With using Google, you won’t have the same emissions.

So the best thing you could do is just using Google, and giving some money to a tree planting organization.

Saurabh Tilakraj Jain, studied at Thakur College of Engineering and Technology
Updated Jan 26
My personal recommendation:

If you want to donate to WWF, without using Ecosia and using your mobile, simply download charity miles and select WWF as your choice in return of miles walked/travelled on vehicle.

Although there's a fixed pool currently in above app currently but donation distribution is affected because of app usage, your cause gets higher support for sure.

Answer to this question: Companies like Amazon pay ‘Ecosia’ startup per click (it’s how nearly all online advertising works). No clicks, no revenue

‘‘just using Ecosia does nothing to help anyone (only genuine clicks on ads does – but not buying stuff would arguably help even more)”.

As we zig zag the
US and Canada border
from Maine to Seattle
and into Alaska

We travel through Native lands
families and friends separated
long lines of cars and trucks
on land and bridges
close communities

Passports to be shown
sunglasses off
those with a DUI
cannot cross over
even as passengers
or ever again
I heard it said

Sometimes it’s a long trek
other times not
Reservations and Reserves
two separate lands
on one border
or another

Veteran Elders come
to participate
at Eagle Staff gatherings
some well into their 90’s

Regalia and bundles
inside the car
the border patrol
depending who you get
know better now
to not go through them

Officers with good training
have learned to respect
the ways and traditions
different from theirs

Indigenous men
women and children
come to participate
in a pow wow
a celebration
a sacred circle
on the other side

First Nations go south
Native Americans go north
First Alaskans go east
Northern First Nations go west

To participate and celebrate
to give thanks for each other
the earth
the land and waters
animals and trees
stories from another time

Everything done in a circle
intricately sewn regalia
headdresses, jingle dresses
made with feathers, beads
and the hide of buffalo
caribou, deer, and seal

Songs and traditions
from long ago
to say we are one
in a circle

with no borders
