Overall, how would you rank the local club scene? What could be improved?

Overall, how would you rank the local club scene? What could be improved?

I'd say it's average. I like a lot of dub step and electronic music. Most of the hip-hop and K-DON and stuff—I really get over those kind of songs. More DJ's and what not would be nice.

What do you love, and what do you hate, about the U.S.?

What do you love, and what do you hate, about the U.S.?

I love my freedom and the natural beauty of the United States. I love that I just spent four magical days at High Sierra Music Festival. I hate that our teachers don't make enough money and that we are closing our schools.

Who is your favorite local politician at the moment?

Who is your favorite local  politician at the moment?

Neal Coonerty because he's sort of a home-grown type guy. I think he's got the best interest at heart for the local people and business, and I certainly hope he is able to persuade some of the other government officials to pay more attention to the problem were having with gangs.

What's the best book you've read recently, why and what did you learn?

What's the best book you've  read recently, why and what did you learn?

“A Perfect Match” by Jodie Picoult. She's a great novelist and I learned compassion and what it must be like to be a parent, and I don’t want to be one.

What’s the most pressing community issue that you would be willing to help solve?

What’s the most pressing  community issue that you  would be willing to help solve?

The most pressing local issue that I would help solve would be increasing our capacity to conserve more water and prepare us in the face of drought. Reducing our current usage from 69 gallons per day to 40 gallons per capita per day.

Good Times Holiday Giving

Giving Where It Helps

 

Giving Thanks: The Thought-Form of Solution

We are in the time and under the influence of Sagittarius, sign of the wanderer, good food, good music, and the joy (Jupiter as ruler) that occurs from giving to others while simultaneously giving thanks from our hearts. Having the Thanksgiving holiday during the month of Sag is not a mistake. No other sign understands joy (an aspect of the Soul) as Sag (except Pisces when not in despair). “Sag is a beam of directed and focused light. The beam reveals a greater light ahead, illuminating the Way to the center of the Light,” emitting the Ray of Joyfulness. Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude; in the form of prayers, thoughts, feelings, wishes, hopes and greetings. Gratitude is something we still need to learn. Gratitude creates goodwill. Together, gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution” for humanity and our world’s problems. Gratitude and goodwill are the prerequisites for the reappearance of the Christ, the Aquarian World Teacher. In Ancient Wisdom texts it is written, “being grateful is the hallmark of one who is enlightened.” Gratitude comes from the Soul—the characteristics of which are love and wisdom (Ray 2). Gratitude is scientifically and occultly (mental, not emotional) a releasing agent. Gratitude liberates us and everything around us. Also a service to others, gratitude is deeply scientific in nature, releasing us from the past and laying open our future path leading to the new culture and civilization, the new laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarian, the Age of Friendship and Equality. The Hierarchy lays much emphasis upon gratitude. Let us be grateful this year and this season together. And so now the days of light illuminating the darkness begin (December’s festivals and feast days). Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I am grateful for all of you, my readers.

Big Basin Vineyards

I was just in the process of purchasing a bottle of Big Basin’s 2012 Homestead in Vinocruz when Matt Ryan walked into the store. Ryan manages the tasting room, sales and the mailing list at Big Basin, and, considering the popularity of their wines, he’s a very busy man.
