re: Which city has the best RESTAURANTS in all of America? - Cali-to-Death Valley

re: Post your top stories of ill behaving youth sports parents - Cali-to-Death Valley
Daughter's U-16 soccer team played the first game of the season against a team from the valley. When they took the field, girls on the other team started throwing gang signs at each other.

re: Tell what you know about Bullmastiffs - Cali-to-Death Valley
Never owned a Bull Mastiff, but did own an Old English Mastiff which are larger than the Bull. Our dog, Nimitz (named after the aircraft carrier because that's how big they get) topped out at 216 pounds (he was in good shape). He was an incredibly gentle dog but an intimidating dog and an excellent...

re: Who ducked and covered? - Cali-to-Death Valley
We did duck and cover drills. During those few weeks of the Cuban Missle crisis, it seemed like we did them daily. All the desks had to be aligned parallel to the windows. In reality, there was way more chance of dying when a bunch of 1st and 2nd graders struggled to turn their desks over on their s...
