Thoughts About Politics - 08/30/08 08:29 AM
Do away with ‘career’ politicians. That will solve the majority of our problems. There is no way politicians would make the laws they do if they had to live by them after a few years in office. Put the original political process in place. People are elected to serve a term and then go back to their ‘real’ life and live with what they’ve done just like we live with it. Politicians live by a different set of rules. They do not suffer the consequences of the rules they require us to live by. Make serving public office voluntary, with little (64 comments)
Back in the 90’s, during an election year, discussions about who to vote for took place on a regular basis.
Nothing new, right?
My niece had, since she was three years old, stated that she was going to be the first woman president of The United States. She was very serious about this and she discussed it on a regular basis for many years. It never crossed our minds that this would not be the case.
Her mother and I were on our way down the road and (32 comments)
Here's something I found out recently… California Pizza Kitchen has take out food. Not a new idea? Well, they have something even better than take out food. They have what I would call, take it out to you, food. California Pizza Kitchen has Curbside Service. How does that work? Call the California Pizza Kitchen near you and ask if they have the service and then place your take out order. Hop in your vehicle and drive over to that location… park in one of the designated parking spaces, give them a call and let them know (11 comments)
Water. Something we take for granted almost every day.
Please consider donating water to the Mesa Hydration Donation Campaign.
The City of Mesa is collecting water donations. The water is distributed to valley shelters and agencies for the homeless, who must survive the extreme heat out doors. Water is essential for survival. We can not live without it. Please do what you are able to help with this project. Go here for more information, and to contact the City of Mesa Human Services Program Coordinator.

Tempe is a bicycle friendly community. We have bike lanes on many of our streets and they are normally very easily defined. I had to be out and about at around 4 AM this morning and had a bit of a scare. Due to recent resurfacing on a major road here in Tempe, some of the lane lines are still missing. A large portion of this street was replaced recently and while the auto lane traffic lines have been repainted, the bicycle lane lines are not yet in place. I was (6 comments)
I’ve been eating at Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen for years! I ate there when I lived in Tucson and have been doing the same since I moved to the Valley of The Sun in 1983. For years, when I worked in Phoenix, we made Macayo a lunch stop on a regular basis. We have our very own Macayo, AKA Depot Cantina, in the heart of downtown Tempe. Don’t fret if you can’t get there from here. If you live in east Tempe, you have the option of visiting the Macayo in west Mesa. Or if you (3 comments)
ARIZONA REAL ESTATE TRANSFER TAX (RETT) - ONE MORE BURDEN ON TAX PAYERS
A few months ago, members of the Arizona Association of REALTORS® (AAR) received an informational mailing titled Support the No New Home Tax Ballot Measure. Did you read it? Since this has come up in the past, AAR wants to stop the RETT, for good this time, by adding it to the November 2008 ballot. For those who are not familiar with this type of taxation, following is some information from the AAR flyer. Just what is a Real Estate Transfer Tax? A state (12 comments)
