Hey La Mesa!!

Hey!, La Mesa! Get up. Its a beautiful morning in the singularly most beautiful place in southern California. Opened my door this morning and the puppy scampered out to play. Looked up in the sky and thought, "Well, just another day in Paradise". If you're a football fan, tonight's the night. But you/we still have all day. Get in the car, drive down to the Village, park it and lets go for a stroll up and down the… Continue

David Smyle "If you weren't mad yet, wait until you hear this!"

To all Helix Water District rate payers.  We all just received an 8% rate increase for this year from the HWD which was also approved by the cities who have to vote on it but did you know that for FYE 6/30/2010, the HWD made a net profit of $7 million and have made over $23 million in profits over the last 10 years having only two losing years.  Even more outrageous is that if you work for the HWD whose average  salary per employee is $63,000+ (assumes all are at the bottom end of the pay…

A Gift of Kitchen Towels

Dear Mrs. H,
I don't know if you remember me, but I remember you very well.  In fact, I think about you almost every day because of something you did a long time ago.  You gave me a gift probably without even knowing you did.
Your gift came when I volunteered to work on your hot lunch committee at our children's school.…

"I Blame The Italians"

It was just 30 days ago that, like so many Americans, I announced my resolutions for the year. It was simple. Straightforward. Inspired by a young, thin doctor and test results that suggested a lighter life would lead to a longer life.

Don’t rush into it, my closest friends told me. Just cut out the pasta. Walk more. Cut down on the wine.

I resolved to hit the gym and,… Continue

The quiet breeze of love and civility. Ah, brotherhood.

I just now completed watching a video taken of a recent demonstration held by a group of "champions of the people" wherein they were shouting against the "hate speech" of what they called the "Right Wing Hate Mongers". I sat for a moment in somewhat shock at what I saw but certainly not surprised by any of the content. Held apparently only days ago owing to some of the comments, all the attendees were shouting or…

I am surprised, shocked and dismayed at the almost total LACK of response to the recent blog regarding personal safety and defense posted here and available in our community.  Inspite of "Official" reports of the decline in crime in La Mesa, the opposite is in fact the truth. More women are falling victim of parking lot crimes, bus stop crimes, bank crimes, you name it. I read about the self defense classes offered at…

Per this ruling, all efforts and attempts to initiate this law into actual operation must cease and the law be set aside.  Well ...... scream as they will about everything said and done by any and all Conservatives, the Progressive Socialist Democrats and the…
