It's pretty crazy to have 2 kids in 2 different school districts (Claremont and Bonita Unified), but I manage to get it done. They're pretty close by schools, so it is kind of nice. And they are performing well academically, so it's a plus for me. The sports family donations, fundraisers, are a little hectic, but it's a small price to pay... along with their expensive lunches on our limited budget. But still, although times are very tough for us economically, I am still grateful that we are financially quite well above the median (on paper) income around here... even though that doesn't help much as we also have a kid in College at Santa Cruz. We have our health, a roof over our heads and daddy picks great stocks! LOL
I have so many things to rant about lately, that I don't even know where to start. Our country is so screwed, jobs are scarce still and things aren't quiet turning around at all. Don't worry, I'm not that stupid to blame Obama like alot of nitwits, I know the House and Senate are purposely blocking pretty much all his proposals in order to get him to fail... they know the American Sheeple are dumb enough to believe it was Obama's fault. And by achieving this, they can continue the destruction and raping or our country that Bush Jr. got steamrolling. I'm no Democrat either... just can see things realistically, not talking points wise. But enough of that.
On a local level, I am not to happy with the City of Pomona's waste transfer station opening up soon, what a gaff that was. Most certainly not happy with the stupid parking meter situation in the Downtown/Arts Colony of Pomona. I already know people who paid for their space, only to still come find a $58 ticket on their window. It's pretty sad, because Claremont's wonderful free parking has actually led me to to frequent their Downtown more than ever. I am also not happy about the Pomona Library's gutting and destruction by the city. And very close to home literally, also not happy about a pawn shop coming next door to In & Out on Indian Hill. How scary is that? Doesn't Holt Avenue have enough of these? Lately, there's been more of the 'Holt Hoes/Prosties' walking from the little motels in Claremont by the 10 up and down the street
, let's add a pawn shop to the element, why not?
On a good note, a friend in the Montclair Police department has told me there are plans for an 'Americana' style area coming to that big empty lot near Target, you know, Monte Vista and Moreno Avenues. Word is a 'YardHouse' will also be in the development, along with other cool and hip places (How about a HOOTERS?)... and as a beer snob, I am VERY EXCITED. This would be better than the shitty Victoria Gardens in Fontana, what a mess that place is.
Anyways, I'll be back soon and I am still around, that is, for those 2 of you who were curious. Take care and do whatever the hell you do!

My daughter caught this as I was shopping at SEARS in Montclair earlier today. What a deal, don't ya think? Way to go SEARS, you'll save yourself with these great prices!
(and that little panda in the reflection is my daughter... well, holding the panda iPod that is)
