A short while ago, I wrote about the lack of cultural sensitivity from a local retailer. It’s happened again. Rather, it’s been happening, this time at a local Great Clips franchise.
Serving on the DCC has been a wonderful experience. I have met many terrific people and made some life-long friendships. But I need to put my needs, and those of my family, first. Thank you for the opportunity to have served this community.
Cultural sensitivity is important. The lack of it takes on many forms and can be found in many places. My most recent encounter occurred at my local BevMo! I’m a little mad, but feel I should share this story.
We were at the veterinarian office on Monday to get her stitches removed. There, I confronted the ghost of Xaviar Cugat.
My brother Mando
My brother Jorge Armando “Mando” Vera passed away today from blood clots related to COVID19. He was a much loved person and led a very complicated, interesting life.
I visited the Fresno’s Chaffee Zoo earlier this week. What a pleasant surprise! The Zoo has become a testament to the good that can happen when taxes are used for the benefit of the community.

I need a vacation. It’s been over a year that I’ve been working from home. You might think that a Work From Home situation would be just like a vacation. But you’d be wrong.
Tinnitus really sucks. Medical professionals say, it doesn’t really exist. But I can hear it now, as I sit on my deck on a Sunday afternoon. It really does suck.
