This is SO like what happened with the Courthouse Square boondoggle - Public meetings 'to seek input' only after it was a closed-door done (horribly) deal. So many folks spoke against it, to no avail. The result is a sterile, ugly parking lot.

Re: Starbucks Drive-Through Going into McDonald's?
From: rossmen      Posted: July 23, 2017, 5:25 pm
Didn't mean to reply privately. The point is starbucks sucks. If we can't outlaw can we tax? I don't believe in either option, but this is reality...

ok I got it, there is an anti Starbucks cult!

Evidently, however, there are a lot of people who like Starbucks...

Humm... should there be a law prohibiting Starbucks?

Hey Rossman,
Hilarious idea to tax espresso shots.
We already tax weed, booze, cigarettes, gas, sales, property, income, water, electricity, sewage, etc. Why not?

Did you know that West County has the exact same number of capaccino machines as hot tubs.
That's why we stay alert while we relax. (Hey trolls, that was just a joke, maybe)

Does anyone remember when...
There used to be bumperstickers saying,
"Friends don't let friends go to Starbucks"
For supporting the local economy, right?
Multinational corporation vs. small cafe owner.
Anyway, Traffic study requirements probably fall in Mr. Webster's purview again.
What can we do? Did someone say let him go? "It's personal."

Anyway, whats the big rush? 5 more minutes in traffic ruins your life?
Where's your Sebastocool outlook?
Lao Tzu explained, "One who knows how to wait, never has to wait."

The whole concept of drive up windows degrades for multiple reasons.
Maybe we can require a walk up and bicycle up window that gets priority service over the drive up window.

And when is the City, County or state going to require NO IDLING signs?
Ending idling saves gas, cuts down on air pollution and makes the town quieter with other benefits, too.

Amy's wanted to open their groovy fast food facility in Sebtown and couldn't get permission for a drive-thru.
Anyone want to buy or shut down the Burger King for them?
West America or Wells Fargo might be even better.
Oh, well.
Love Always!

Reads bad, don't believe this is the right place for business disputes. In the spirit of the customer is right, my free advice is return the 400 and chalk it up to learning, not easy when starting but essential.

Yeah, this is not the place to work out disputes. But it's actually a great reminder. Don't give yourself away. Don't say yes to things you should say no to. It's hard to start a business and it's common to think that giving deals will bring more work. If you are doing that (and I cartainly have!) it doesn't bring in the energy you want. You want to be respected for the work you do and you want to act with integrity. Giving your work away is not acting with integrity with yourself.

On the flip side, don't assume you know what it really costs to buy a service you don't know anything about. You are hiring someone for their expertise. Looking to see what GoDaddy charges doesn't say anything about hosting and what that might mean. Pay them what they are worth! That brings you good juju, because you are acting with integrity as well.

I've certainly messed up both. Hard lessons to learn, as we are seeing here. I hope that some kind of peace will come for both parties.

Plastic Free July In The Kitchen from Occupy Sonoma County
From: EmeraldMatra     
Posted: July 24, 2017, 1:08 am


Plastic Free in the Kitchen

  • Find your local Farmers Markets. Health Food stores have a bulk section so check these out too!

  • Avoid buying packaged processed food. For a sweet treat, go to a bakery and ask for a paper bag - or bring your own container.

  • Don't use a plastic bag to line your trashcan - use newspaper instead! Or keep it nude and simply rinse between uses.

  • Store fresh veggies and herbs in the fridge wrapped in a damp tea towel rather than plastic bags.
  • Take your own containers to the butcher, and if you'd like to freeze meat, wrap in baking paper and then foil to avoid freezer burn.

  • Go to "Living Plastic-Free" for more great ideas.

  • Go here for a list of recipes including nut milk, yogurt and crackers. For a quick cracker thinly slice a baguette/french stick and bake in the oven with some olive oil. Sometimes it takes longer to make things over buying packaged in plastic, but it often costs less, and is generally more healthy.

  • Store food in reusable plastic and glass containers, glass jars and metal tins. You can even freeze bread in clean pillowcases or cloth bags.

  • Sign up today to join Plastic Free July!

  • Check the Occupy Sonoma County Shopper's Guide for recommended cleaning products. We most highly recommend Dr. Bronner's.

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Families: An Innovative, Nature-Based Approach to Understanding and Transforming Patterns of Behavior and Communication in Families

July 28 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm


This one-day training is for therapists, social workers, judges, attorneys, law enforcement, equine-facilitated therapy practitioners, and other professionals who work with families in transition and crisis, including divorce, domestic violence and other complex cases. The workshop is also open to parents who are dealing with family challenges.

Led by author/psychologist Rebecca Bailey, Ph.D. and author/equine-facilitated learning pioneer Linda Kohanov, Ancient Wisdom for Modern Families introduces an engaging and effective model for helping parents, their spouses, and their children learn how to recognize, reframe and alter unproductive behavior, belief, and communication patterns that inhibit families from leading loving, mutually supportive lives.

As a trauma, abduction, and family reunification specialist, Dr. Bailey helps people recover from abuse, criminal acts, divorce. While she has worked with hundreds of individuals and families in crisis, she is best known as the counselor who helped Jaycee Dugard reunite with her family after Jaycee was rescued in 2009 from a highly publicized 18-year abduction. (All proceeds for the sale of The Ancient Wisdom for Modern Families workbook go to the JAYC Foundation, which Jaycee founded to assist families in crisis.).

“Over the years, I’ve learned that empowered families are crucial to protecting their loved ones to begin with, for helping survivors of extreme experiences heal, and for leading the kind of cultural change that prevents violence,” Dr. Bailey says. “The Ancient Wisdom trainings and interventions provide a unique and often even fun way for people to learn more constructive ways of handling everyday challenges as well as the more difficult situations that families must sometimes deal with.”

The Ancient Wisdom model is based on five styles of power/social influence active in groups of humans and animals that can either work at odds with each other, or enhance the well-being of the entire “herd” or “tribe.”

“Most people prefer to use one or two roles, and ignore or even abdicate the others,” Linda Kohanov observes. “The tendency to overspecialize, however, gives rise to unproductive behaviors. But as my colleagues and I discovered in studies of power dynamics throughout history and across multiple cultures and species, there is another way.”

“Over thousands of years, tribes that cared for large, unrestrained animals developed a multi-faceted, socially intelligent form of leadership combining these five roles,” she explains. “In understanding the differences between the Dominant, Leader, Nurturer/Companion, Sentinel, and Predator roles, herders were able to capture the unique power of each. In the process, they created a fluid vocabulary of interventions that allowed interspecies communities to move across vast landscapes. These people had to deal with predators and changing climates, protecting and nurturing the herd while keeping these massive, gregarious, sometimes aggressive animals together — without the benefit of fences and with very little reliance on restraints.”

Linda summarized the research leading to the creation of this model in her 2013 book The Power of the Herd. “These richly nuanced skills were lost when humanity moved toward a sedentary, city-based lifestyle,” she says. “Even so, when applied to modern situations, these ancient principles can help us harness the talents and creativity of individuals, families, and entire communities.”

Wanted: Quiet Artist seeks work live space.
From: Thatwizard707      Posted: July 24, 2017, 8:16 am
  1200 max with housing vouture
Location:  Anywhere in Sonoma County
Wait Wait...
Before you dismiss a housing vouture...
Its guaranteed rent! ;)
And easy to qualify... If your place is livable.
(Finding home when you're poor and honest,
Sometimes this is the only way)

OK
So... I am a VERY quiet tenant.
I don't watch TV or listen to music.
I listen to books.

I am respectful of those around me.

I don't smoke cigs or drink or do drugs.
I have no pets... No children... No "ex's"
(I like gardening and caring for others pets if you like)

I am single, I have No loud friends or hardly any visitors.
I have excellent personal references.

I live on very modest disabilty income and have the housing vouture... And make a little on my Art.

I will look at spaces others might not.
As long as it has bare amenities.
An outside space to be creative would mean ALOT!

I would love Sebastopol (I'd sure like to be near the Maker Space) but will consider Anywhere in the county.

I welcome your questions

Thank you for reading
(If you made it this far)

Anchorage

Seagulls cackle and cry

into the light of day and night

It's 2:30 am, we hear long sad
piercing screams that cry us to sleep

Like a hundred lost kittens meowing

We are new to Alaska, first timers here
just one day in

On the 8am news we hear that the
largest iceberg to date has broken off
the Antarctic shelf

Out the window we see people walking to work, a stray dog, a UPS truck drives by

Oh, when did we stop listening to the birds

We read that Moose have been seen walking on the streets of downtown Anchorage
