Just 455 days ago, Silicon Valley and much of the world went dark with the first mandatory "shelter in place" order, designed to slow the spread of COVID-19. With curfews, restrictions on gatherings, business closings and requirements for masks, gloves and sanitizers, the world resembled (and sometimes felt like) an apocolyptic horror movie. Now that the Nine-County Bay Area is re-opening on June 15, inquiring minds want answers.Here are links to Frequently Asked Questions and resources to help people make good choices moving forward as of June 15, 2021. While it's reported that more than half of all Californians age 12 and up are reportedly vaccinated, caution is still advised. Employees should be aware that California's Occupational Safety & Health Association will be releasing new wo...

With the lock-down in place order people were trying to stay safe and made adjustment on their life style. While we accept this virtue human interaction life style, this year we went to look at neighborhood chickens instead of egg hunting contest.  Many neighbors raised chickens for eggs and education for their children. Neighbor had green eggs raised by Polish hens. So green eggs and ham are very fresh. You do not find ham in one's backyard, but we did have ham, creamy macaroni, and broccoli for our family gathering on an Easter.________ SOURCE:     Shueh...

He earned $250,000.00 of life time wages and had just $250 saved up.

Asian American Support Goes Viral Often, getting the first words down are the hardest. "Writer's block."  But not this time.  So let me start by condemning the recent incident of gun violence against Asian Americans in Atlanta.  Let me take the opportunity to communicate to all Americans of all races that discrimination, in all forms, is wrong and will not be tolerated.  Not in my business, not in my community, not in the private confines of my home.   Specifically with violence against Asian Americans, statistics show an increase in verbal and physical assaults since the onset of COVID-19. So the next time you get a chance to talk about the pandemic --- anywhere with anyone --- don't call it, or allow it to be called, the China virus or the Wuhan flu.  Not because there isn't a kernel ...

Having just level-1 storm twice since last spring we will take all the rain we can get. What we got was not expected. The Alaska freezing air stirred up with moist cloud formed hail which started in the North...

  HUGE Tech Companies going down the toilet 12/12/2020 With all the Politics, Fake News and controlling from within HUGE Tech Companies have law suits coming in from all over the world. Sure these Tech companies have plenty of money to pay off these law suits, but it doesn't look good for them.I have a FaceBook account and for the last year most everything on there is garbage, except photos from family and a hand few of friends. The only thing FaceBook is good for would be connecting with new photos of family & friends & advertising your business. Other then that FaceBook is a total waste of time. Fake News, Lies and putting garbage in viewers heads and Brain Wash of the worst kind, like watching the News on TV with all the lies.I also have a Twitter account, along with LinkedIn and sev...

What Goes Up Must Come Down ... 2020Well the Real Estate Market surprising inclined during the month of November with the pandemic and election. The low interest rates play a huge factor along with people retiring and either buying a second home or investment homes.Into December now we will start to see a slow down into the first quarter of 2021. I do believe interest rates may rise in 2021 followed by a steady declined of values in the Real Estate Market.The Real Estate Market is way overdue for a crash & or serious decline. But if the government continues to let foreigners come into America to purchase multipal homes with "CASH" it's really hard to say. Foreigners have been coming into America purchasing homes since the last Real Estate crash and either flipping them and or renting th...
