Re: Speaking of PG&E Scam...Analogue Meter Users Heads-Up
From: occihoff     
Posted: April 24, 2017, 1:26 pm
We use propane, and firewood from our forest, so for us PG&E is only for electricity. For many years we have qualified for a 30% low income discount under the CARE program. But recently I spent hours going over our old bills, and discovered that our CARE discount had been applied in an erratic and irregular way. We have two "smart" meters: one for the house, and another for a seldom used old cabin plus the pump that pumps our household water from our adjacent creek. The house uses far more electricity than the pump and cabin, yet the CARE discount was frequently and unpredictably given only for the cabin meter, instead of for both meters together as it should have been.

I contacted PG&E's CARE department, which resulted in a considerable rebate to be taken off future bills. But this bill analysis and telephone time with PG&E took a lot of work and hassle, and the CARE specialist could not explain how such a big and supposedly expert company could be so flaky in their billing process. If they had always low-balled us it would be one thing--they'd clearly be gypping us--but there had been no regular pattern in the ups and downs from month to month. So I'll have to watch my future bills like a hawk now, both for the bill itself and for how the rebate is applied!

The CARE specialist said he could not even see the fluctuations from month to month on his screen the way I can see them on my paper bills. He had to come up with another type of calculation, which fortunately coincided pretty well with my own. He said if I wanted to demand a fuller explanation of what's been going on here I would have to call PG&E again and ask to speak with a "billing specialist." We'll see where that goes. But clearly, given my experience and all the other experiences described in this Wacco thread, what is really needed is pressure put on the PUC to account for all this at best flaky and at worst crooked craziness!

The title of Ava DuVernay's (Selma) extraordinary and galvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States." The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.

NEW Heron Hall Art Exhibit
"FAUNA" Paintings and Mosaics by Stacey Schuett
On display May 5 through August 29, 2017
Heron Hall, Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa
Opening Reception Saturday, May 20, 2017, 3:00-5:00pm
FREE. No RSVP necessary. Light snacks provided.


Artist Statement - “I’ve always been drawn to using animals and insects as subjects, for their form and grace and contrast. I mostly make pieces about local wildlife, creatures in our area or nearby. Living near the diversity of the Laguna de Santa Rosa is especially fortunate for me – endless subject matter! Life here is fully present every moment, much of it hidden and secretive, seen and unseen. It’s easy to be aware of how many of us of different species overlap and occupy the same space.”

“Making my pieces on wooden rigid panels helps with the crackle process, and with the aged, sometimes ancient feel. Building up texture and wearing it away again gives the appearance of roughening that comes with natural aging. I use a number of different materials that often do surprising things, and I find I can’t control everything; chance insists on happening. In the mosaics, I make the tiles myself with some aim of controlling variations of color, but the technique itself is a little awkward, given to flaws and imperfections. I like the flaws. They’re reminders of the beauty of the imperfect, and the fact that all of nature is a work continually in progress. So, being reminded daily, I try to have my pieces reflect a sense of time passing, with a bit of wonder at all the mysteries involved.”

You can also visit a basketry plant garden he created at the Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross, where he and four friends recently wove a basket 13 feet in diameter.

Wanted: Lovely space to park our tiny home

Location:  Sebastopol
Hi Community,
We recently moved to the area from Berkeley! We are so excited to be here and have never felt at home and welcomed in so generously by a community ever before, so thank you.

We, my partner Isaac and I, are seeking out a space to park our tiny home in the West County area, preferably somewhere with land that is equipped with electrical + water hookup - no need for septic. We are currently in Valley Ford but are looking to relocate from the current land we're parked on. We are open to the possibility of a work-trade or a simple payment exchange for rent. If this is you, please contact us. If you know of someone that we'd be a good fit for, please connect us! We're available for coffee anytime.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Thank you for your time.
Contact me, Brea, via email [email protected] or give me a call/text 925.482.4686

Wanted: Rental by June 1st for FAMILY OF 3
From: shootingstar     
Posted: April 24, 2017, 1:14 pm
  $1500
Location:  Sebastopol, Forestville, West County
We are a family of three, husband & wife & our 14 year old son. We have 7+ years experience in Professional Care-taking and Property Maintenance. References are available upon request.

Currently, we are seeking a living situation for at least a year with the possibility of becoming long term tenants. Although, we have experience as Care-Takers, we currently want to do a few hours of maintenance per month to offset the cost of a rental. Therefore, to be clear, we will assist with maintaining your property.

We are asking for a guest space or our own private space w/separate entry and a fenced in yard in exchange for Property Maintenance, and we will pay partial rent in the amount we agree upon. We will agree on a number of hours that need to be completed each month to make the exchange equal (in addition to exchange/trade hours per month, we have posted $1500 as a monthly amount we will pay for Rent).

We are trustworthy, family oriented, and in our integrity to work together to bring more balance to your property. Our intention is to free you up with some of the day to day chores & maintenance, etc. that you may not have time for over the week, the month, or the year. You might have a project around your property you haven't found time for, etc. We have professional carpentry skills, house cleaning (Feng Shui), & organizational guidance to offer as well, and examples of our work are available, too.

We are well aware of maintaining privacy & keeping healthy boundaries. We will make agreements with you about what our exchange entails, and all the specifics to keep a steady & even flow.

In the last 7+ years we have taken care of 4 uniquely different properties. Here are some of the details on what our Care-taking & Property Maintenance ventures looked like:

1.) Vacation Rental Property in Sonoma County. Care-taking & property maintenance, gardening & landscaping, fence building, house cleaning, de-cluttering, and organization & execution of larger projects, wood splitting, road maintenance, pool, spa, and sauna maintenance, dog care, all details to keep the rental in tip top shape.

2.) Old off grid cabin in the woods that was neglected. It needed to be deep cleaned, renovated, painted, garden prepped & planted, and large quantities of garbage were hauled to the dump. The overall objective was to have a place to live in exchange for creating an environment where the cabin is more of an asset to the land.

3.) Off grid on 40 acres located in Northern California @ 2300 feet. Cleaned two living spaces (many hours of cleaning), took care of gardens, built a deck w/ a workshop area, built and prepped new gardens & beds. Also, an addition was built on this property part-time after we moved.

4.) 80 Acre Ranch in the high desert Reno, NV @ 6400 feet. Taking care of gardens, maintenance, animal care, house cleaning & organizing, built floating dock w/ walkway for lake, tree-trimming, fixed many little things around the property, fixed fences, helped w/ care of animals, made a larger round pin for horses, gates & fences built for new animals, and stained many wooden surface areas/including large decks. On this off grid property we installed & upgraded a high end power system w/ Solar Panels & batteries, and a new Wind Generator System.

Our intention and goal is to cut back on our overhead expenses by paying less rent so that we save up money to build our own unique tiny home.

We live sustainable & with a low footprint.

We are choosing this route to support our long term goals as a family.

We see this as a potential win-win situation with excellent communication in place!

We are available to begin moving now with a move-in date of June 1st, 2017.

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you!


P.S. Email first w/ your inquiry, and include a number and the best time to reach you.

Two bedroom one bath to share with garage you would get the bigger bedroom (12 x 13 feet) with large closet. New paint, new windows, and beautiful refinished hardwood floors.

I am a female in the health profession working full-time I am clean and tidy I occasionally have friends over in like to go out but I also like to have time at home exercising cooking listening to music and watching TV, reading. I am a healthy eater and would share my Vitamix blender with you! Igrew up in West County and am very tolerant of all lifestyles. I have stuff that is described as hippie chic/Santa Fe classy. I can move furniture out and you move some in ( we share!) I collect rocks and have a colorful aesthetic. I am looking for a preferably female housemate who works full-time outside the home is glad to share the chores such as housecleaning and yardwork and takes good care of the home. I hope to share the home with someone who is clean easy-going trustworthy liberal funny and reliable and wants to stay put for a while! If you're into gardening that's a plus. I really want a cool person and found my last roommate on Wacco-she was GREAT!

Plenty of privacy
It is a good deal knowing what you can get out there. I have great landlords I know and trust. They wont raise the rent every year and aren't selling for many years.

Re: The Meaning of Life

I'm afraid I found Thompson's essay excessively verbose and not all that incisive. For me the term "meaning" of life is meaningless. "Meaning" is something we look for in the world of human intentions and verbal understandings. It's a basically intellectual thing. But life is beyond that. What does it "mean" that you suddenly came out of nothing into this amazing world of body and consciousness when you were born?

For me the most important thing is a passionate feeling of wonder and amazement--the feeling you would get on suddenly beholding a miracle. For what is our coming into being out of nothing when we were born but a colossal miracle? And the world of color and sound and scent and touch and thought and feeling and existence in human form that we were born into and are reborn into every morning is a miracle! In comparison to that fundamental miracle the conscious and unconscious decisions we make each moment and every day about what is important to us--the meaning of our actions--is important but secondary.

Sadly, it is our lot as we gradually grow up out of childhood and struggle with the everyday challenges of life to become jaded and take it all for granted. The feeling of wonder and delight that should be at the core of our experience of life becomes dimmer and hard to rekindle. Psychedelics can help, but that expansive energy and spiritual vision is up against a lot of emotional clogging.

This is why for me body psychotherapy has become for decades now the core of my personal yoga or spiritual opening practice. It's a matter of doing the best I can to soften the physical and emotional armor laid down in me from childhood on, so that I can feel life more fully. It's hard work and there's plenty of resistance. But the more I soften the armor and release the layers of anger, grief, and fear, the more I can feel the wonder and magic of this world.

What provides meaning for me is the spiritual experience of the sweat lodge. Years ago when I first entered the sacred space of the lodge, I experienced a feeling of "home" for the first time in my life. After 26 years of sweating with other medicine men and leading lodges myself, I continue to be amazed and enlightened and transformed by the sacred experience of union with Mystery that happens for me in the lodge. Emerging from the lodge this Sunday morning after sweating Saturday evening for four rounds and four more on Sunday I realized that all my defenses -- perceptual, experiential, psychological -- all were sweated out and washed away. I could see every leaf on every tree, I could see an appreciate the hawks and owls and crows and hummingbirds and woodpeckers who visited us. This is the meaning of life for this man, to fully experience and join in the Mystery of each moment.

Education?

To define a child by A to Z
Refines the art of mockery;
Such pretense of intellect
Harbors collective disrespect;
Uniform charts on every wall
Imitate Apollo perfectly apall.
Yes this urgency to order
Pretends the goddess of disorder
Is not a worthy Nemesis,
And that her cousin Dionysius
Has forsworn wine: his bride Psyche
Become a bridesmaid of Nike.

- Brian McSweeney
