What is your advice, or hope, for the new City of Santa Cruz Water Director Rosemary Menard?

LT allisonI hope that she, when thinking about it, thinks long term.

LT jeniferMy hope is that we can find a way to make sure that clean water is available for everyone, and I would consider a tertiary  water treatment to recycle the water that we use.

LT jenniferPGet people to stop watering their lawns. Don’t flush your toilet when you just pee in it. Be more conscious of how long you take a shower. Reuse your pasta water.

LT hankMaybe we should have two systems of water so we don’t use our drinking water to flush our toilets. And how can we totally recycle our water? How can we reuse it again? Can we do it in a permaculture environment where we bioremediate it? How can we effectively bioremediate our water and reuse it?

LT jessicaI hope she knows how to rain dance.

Best of luck, Rosemary!

I hope that under your leadership we can create more awareness in the community on wasteful water habits around the home. From what I've seen, sharing ideas on how to conserve waters really shows people that conserving water really isn't much of a hard effort. :)

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.
