You did a great job of describing Breezy's and Brookelyn's room, Debbie, but, I'm still speechless.Read More It's absolutely stunning. I can only imagine how it looks in person. Blue (and all of the varied hues) is my "signature color", so I was particularly taken with the girls' room. Just stunning. And, that ceiling light is absolutely amazing. Wow. Just wow! All I can say is, a certain someone, who shall remain nameless, is going to have to share the paper towel roll after Thanksgiving dinner this year. : ) Soooo very much to be thankful for. SO VERY MUCH. God is good. Stan and Debbie - wishing you and your incredible children continued blessings as this holiday season approaches. It's such a blessing to know you all. And, I'm going to stop typing now before my tears get the better of me. I have a million things to do today, including beating the Costco madness. Only Costco has a full parking lot 3 minutes after the store opens. So, there's no crying during Saturday errands! lol! Incredible job, Special Spaces!!! Great job also on the guitar room and even seeming to create more space in the "bedroom that wasn't".

What w wonderful organization. Breezy I wish you 90 more years of good health. What a strong girlRead More you are.

What blessings abound! The room is glamorous and I think I'll grab a sleeping bag and sleep on theRead More floor one night just to enjoy that neat T,V. with the girls ( and have those soft lights above the dropped crown molding glowing.) Thank you so much all you generous and talented people who made it possible. Brookelyn and Breezy's Memaw

I am so inspired by you... I want to create a way I can do the same thing - honoring people for theRead More difference they are making so they can continue in their journey of goodwill and love!

basic and its prediction opposite. As long as one open said: I think so, then the audience mustRead More conclude that ZhangZhaoZhong may be wrong again, must be opposite conclusion. http://www.louboutinukmidlands.com/

I think that adults tend to disregard teenagers, and the fact is that they are our future, and weRead More definitely need to put time in to understand them and communicate with them. I have a 16 year old, and I find him and his friends to be deep, intellectual, and spiritual. They have a rough road ahead of them, but we can make it smoother by talking to them as peers and developing a mutual respect so that we can share our life experience.
Kirsten Branch June 30, 2012 at 02:54 pm
I agree. We parents like to tell our kids, "LISTEN TO ME," but we could do with a bit ofRead More walking that talk better, don't you think?

Those of us who teach high school could have told you those things about teenagers, but it isRead More wonderful to hear someone else make the statements that you did about the teenagers growing up in the San Ramon Valley. I teach/coordinate two "teenage" internship program at California High School (Careers in Teaching and iQuest). The first thing I do each school year is work to earn the respect of my students, when I do, they in turn work to earn my respect. Teenagers want to have responsibility, want to do good work, want to succeed on their own, want to be silly and look forward to the chapter of their lives called adulthood. I fortunately am able to have a career that puts me right in the middle of their lives; they are funny, silly, responsibility, insightful, intelligent and add to our communities. As adults we owe it to them to work to earn their respect, when we do, they will want to earn ours.

With all the interest in this vampire stuff the REd Cross should have a "Twilight" Drive.Read More Shirtless hunky male vamps for female donors, toothy vampirellas for the guys.
Christina Richards July 4, 2012 at 04:06 am
I would LOVE to donate - used to 4x a year until I lived in Europe for a while. Now the Red CrossRead More doesn't want my blood because they think I might have mad cow disease. It's a shame too - I've got the good old, common stuff that they always run low on. When is the Red Cross going to change their rules requiring people living outside the country for a while?

I wouldn't expect that to happen anytime in the foreseeable future.
Michael Jefferies June 4, 2013 at 08:44 am
<a href="http://www.ustextilesonline.com/hospitality/">Kansas City restaurantRead More supply</a> isn't at all bad in my opinion. I give them two thumbs up!
Eileen March 28, 2012 at 02:31 am
Thanks for the 411 on this local enviro volunteering opportunity. I've signed my whole family, kidsRead More and all, up.
David Mills (Editor) March 28, 2012 at 12:22 pm
Eileen... thanks for signing up. Look forward to seeing you and the family up on the mountain

I would think tearing down all the structures, removing all the paving, and all other traces ofRead More people on Mt. Diablo would make it beautiful again. Glad people are saving the dirt, but there are still kids who go to bed hungry and can't read in OUR county - is there an App for that fatty?
