Jan 11th 2013 3:35AM I'm a RV owner. Just a small 20 foot rig. There is one RV park in the San Francisco are. It's right next to Candlestick Park and not far from a scary neighborhood I choose not to stop in. So when I visit S. F. I park in the city each night. Unless one tows a small auto there is no shuttle to and from the city after 9:00 PM also. These people are living a great life that seems to fit. Now if they extended an extension cord to someone's business or residence for electricity or a hose for their water needs then they would be moochers but apparently they don't.
Nov 25th 2012 5:14PM I was bring back some Hawaiian perserves and jam, there was a restriction on items that were made of gel. The TSA agents did not know the difference insisting they were jelly.
Sep 1st 2012 1:38PM It's a pretty typical articulated bus with the middle section added. How the extra wheels (2 axles instead of 1) steer or operate is what is questionable to me. The original articulated's import to the U.S. by MAN proved to be troublesome while making right and left hand turns. Because the back wheels were part of the steering (much like second driver on aerial fire trucks) they were prone to take out bus shelters when pulling from the curb and vehicles to their left when making right hand turns. The current articulated bus here now operate more like a semi truck and trailer. And since the front portion is only 30 feet long generally they are easier to negotiate turns than a typical 40 foot bus. Do the front wheels on the second section stay rigid or do they steer that section with the third section following it as is normal in a regular articulated?
Aug 29th 2012 2:51PM Frank Lloyd Wright was not your run of the mill architect. He not only designed the house to fit it's surroundings but usually the furnisher. Gutting the kitchen for instance would destroy an important element of the house. Retro appliances, not new stainless steel ones, are part of the design and feeling.
Mar 30th 2012 4:14PM I faced just the opposite. My HOA tried to outlaw Christmas lights and decorations. I told them it was freedom of religion and if they insisted they would have to take down their Jewish religious symbols. Guess who won. I love my Christmas lights.
Jan 13th 2012 9:55PM While no one wants to see a pig sty next store to them how many of her complaining neighbors inquired what the problem was or offered help. It was strangers from other neighborhoods who showed up to assist her after she was jailed.
Jan 8th 2012 10:03PM >mechanized< was supposded to be ethanized.
I also have a RV and she loves traveling in it and sleeps right next to me at night.
Jan 8th 2012 9:56PM I'm retired so I take my dog everywhere. This past June we went shopping and then stopped at Outback for dinner as usual. I was gone perhaps 45 minutes. It was about 70 degrees outside and I had left her ice in an old canvas lunch bag that she is well aware of, both front windows partially down and a oscillating fan going. When I came out with her portion of prime rib and mashed potato's she was gone. After contacting the Burbank P. D. I was told animal control had picked her up. I immediately went to their location about two minutes away and was met at the door by this wana be cop. His first remark was; "what took you so long?" This did not register until later. When I first saw her missing I called out her name and could hear her barking. He demanded $25.00 for her release and when I produced it from a large wad of money he became even nastier and said ;"you know I could have her mechanized." He argued about her age, if she was fixed and if she had just had puppy's which she didn't.. In the end I was issued a misdemeanor citation, she had injured her leg when he took her harness off without unbuckling it and when he finally brought her out he kept yanking back on the leach choking her. I became very ill for over a month with several visits to the E. R. When I went to court I was told the City of Burbank prosecutes everyone who leaves their pets unattended in their vehicles. Weekly visits to Outback have ceased as well as other businesses in Burbank that don't allow pets in.
Nov 23rd 2011 7:53PM I would have slammed the arm rest down and when the fat guy complained I would have ignored him. He should have been the guy standing for seven hours not the normal sized person. And it would have been better for him, he might have lsot a few pounds.
Jun 8th 2011 6:25AM What the hell is Delta thinking? I don't care how many pieces of luggage the servicemen have they should not be charged. Fom what the article stated most of the luggage consisted of issued equipment they were transporting as part of their duties. DELTA, refund their money and throw in a free vacation to Hawaii for each of them for their inconvience.
