Dear Ms DeBlasio, I have been reading your post with great interest as well as the replies youRead More received and your subsequent comments. Your knowledge of the Silicon Valley is amazing. Could you be somehow be connected or are you a member of Seasteading Institute? The residents of the "valley" are truly a unique group in terms of their work ethic and being "real folks". Please keep posts like this coming our way.

It is the DNA of the area that makes it what it is. I live within 3 blocks of probably 20 start upsRead More - it is very exciting and viable and interesting. But it is also changing the way some live in a not so positive manner. http://www.thesiliconvalleystory.com/between-the-lotus-and-the-lamborghini-lie-the-homeless/

@AnnBradley Please check my post called "The Forgotten Children". I related one suchRead More story and intend to write more about this tragic situation. http://studiocity.patch.com/groups/irene-deblasios-blog/p/the-forgotten-children In Los Angeles we have about 58,000 people, many with children, living in cars, vans, under bridges, near neighborhoods where they have access to restrooms and cheap food. It's deplorable and making matters worse are the hypocrites to spend one single day at a shelter dishing out Thanksgiving dinners (only when cameras are rolling). We have other people in the media using their editorial space to complain about either side of entitlement spending -- as if that were relevant. The homeless are not using snap, ebt cards, Medicaid or section 8 housing. These entitlements can add up to $39,000. The homeless we're seeing now are not in the system. Sadly, too many politicians and celebrities go out to shelters for one single day -- Thanksgiving -- while the cameras are rolling. On the other side of the coin, many of us work in food banks all year in order to volunteer time, not to simply throw some money at a charitable organization -- many of which are rip offs. Always check out a charity on charitynavigator.org to see how much money is raised and how much is actually spent on the goal (Many administrators have charged a charmed lifestyle with private planes to the charity as fundraising charges). The most difficult job now is outreach. If you find a homeless family, get them to a shelter first. There is help available. I'm grateful for your comment. Many thanks.
Dip and chips.  Please don't hog it all.

Glad I could get things rolling for you, Irene. I'm just so glad that I don't do deli!

@bethhilton Brava!!! I cook at home too. The only deli I do from time to time is for thinly slicedRead More prosciutto. I cook mostly Italian food and I find it refreshing to have prosciutto with sliced melon, watermelon or figs. It makes a wonderful lunch or appetizer for dinner. Keep coming back and many thanks.

@WilliamBauer I needed to back track to find your comment. So glad to hear you agree with most ofRead More the others here. I don't know what ever happened to good sense and manners but they seem to be in short supply nowadays. I appreciate your comment.
