What is Thanksgiving actually a celebration of?

What is Thanksgiving actually  a celebration of?

Thanksgiving in the United States should be a celebration of our abundance and gratitude for all that we have, and our relationships, the beautiful land, plenty of food, water and air—especially if we can figure out ways to distribute all of it to everybody. Everybody should get something.

How far should government go to regulate fast food for kids?

How far should government go to regulate fast food for kids?

I think it's the fast food industry that needs to take responsibility for the effects of
their products, and I don’t know that the government needs to get involved.

What are your thoughts on the recent election?

What are your thoughts on the recent election?


I'm happy that California stood firm and supported some progressive people, but I'm dismayed about the Republicans taking over the House and getting strength in the Senate.

What’s the best thing Obama can be doing for the country right now?

What’s the best thing Obama can be doing for the country right now?


Resign. Probably the worst president we've had to date, he's taking us in a direction the founding fathers never intended us to be. He's a great believer in big government, which is just the opposite of where we need to be heading. So I'm hoping that there is a huge reversal of leadership as a result of the election on Tuesday.

What’s the most scared you've ever been?

What’s the most scared  you've ever been?

When I was little my uncle used to go outside of our bedroom window when we were going to sleep and he would start to scratch on the window. We'd think that somebody was trying to get in. I literally connot remember being more scared, it was petrifying. And then after a while we realized it was him.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
