Is it time for new gun laws in the United States? Why?

Is it time for new gun laws in the United States? Why?

Semi-automatics should be outlawed—period. I'm kind of on the fence on the rest of the gun laws. I wish that we lived in a place that we didn’t have to have gun control, but unfortunately they are available to too many crazy people. So, definitely ban semi-automatics for personal use.

Will you go to D-League Warriors games in Santa Cruz?

Will you go to D-League Warriors games in Santa Cruz?

Yeah, I would. I'm a basketball fan, and we need more things like that, where people can go and have some fun. If they build it and actually use it for what they say they’re going to use it for, yes, I would do that.

Do you think that we as a nation are becoming more polarized? If so, why?

Do you think that we as a nation are becoming more polarized?  If so, why?

I think so. There's many common issues that we’re all facing and we find unity in this economy. Everybody is going through their struggles. I think unity is the best savior.

What do you think should be done to address hunger in Santa Cruz County?

What do you think should be done to address hunger in Santa Cruz County?

I think that it would be great to turn all our ornamental parks into edible parks, and have more food education direct to the public. I think we should decriminalize feeding hungry people and make it completely OK for anyone who feels compelled and compassionate to go direct service and bring out a pot of soup. And I feel like it's about education and access.

What are your thoughts on the Supreme Court upholding Obamacare?

What are your thoughts on the Supreme Court upholding Obamacare?

I'm very much for Obama. I believe he's trying to do the best thing for as many people as he can, and I believe that it would be nice for everybody to have healthcare. We have to pay for auto insurance and home insurance, so why not health insurance?

What changes would you like to see to improve Downtown Santa Cruz?

What changes would you like to see to improve Downtown Santa Cruz?

I'd like to see a more family- and tourist- friendly vibe downtown. And a safe place for people to hang and feel like they can bring their families and relatives from out of town and not get harrased and harangued by various elements down here.

Would you support the use of drones in our skies in the name of security?

Would you support the use of drones in our skies in the name of security?

No, not under any circumstance should drones, without the knowledge of the public, be circulated in our air space.

Is This a Dream?

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.

Fortino Winery’s Intriguing Charbono

At the opening celebration of the new Santa Clara Wine Trail in August, one of the wineries we visited was Fortino. This is where I first tasted their intriguing estate-grown Charbono—a varietal that is one of the rarest in California, with only 80 acres grown statewide.
