re: What's The Longest You've Stayed Awake? - Cali-to-Death Valley on 6/21/17 at 12:47 am
Partner and I were on call in 1998. Homicide callout, we'd automatically go on a 36 hours clock. After 36 straight, was on way home to get some sleep. Get another callout, weak arse supervisor refuses to call in another team. After living on Mountain Dew, Salem Lites, and Payday bars with no sleep fo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: How do I know if an old man wearing a WW2 or Korea hat really served? - Cali-to-Death Valley on 5/27/17 at 9:32 am
My father is 91, served towards the end of WWII and again at beginning of Korea. Most folks that age who served are pretty much past the drawing attention to themselves stage in their life. If they are wearing those hats it is for themselves or as bond with those they served with. Especially Korea. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Older black women who treat you like one of their children - Cali-to-Death Valley on 5/8/17 at 12:15 am
The same goes for out here in California. Older Black folks and their families will take you in like you're their own. 35 years ago my work partner who is Black took me home to meet his parents. They instantly took me in as if I had been born into their family. In short time this included his ext...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Which city has the best RESTAURANTS in all of America? - Cali-to-Death Valley on 4/29/17 at 11:28 am
Kind of depends on what you're looking for. Asian food (all regions of China, Thai, Burmese, Korean, Vietnamese, Laotian), it's San Francisco and north San Mateo County hands down. Seattle has a very underrated restaurant scene. N.Y. has the most varied-no other place comes close. But, in my opi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

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: 6-figure salaries considered low income in some Bay Area counties - Cali-to-Death Valley on 4/26/17 at 1:59 am
Was assigned to the City of East Palo Alto in San Mateo County from the 80's through 1999 when it was known as the Killing Fields of the USA. Highest per-capita homicide and violent crime rate in the country. My team and I used to joke that we should have pooled our money and bought some of those $2...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Tell what you know about Bullmastiffs - Cali-to-Death Valley on 3/26/17 at 10:46 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: One of Steve McQueen's "Bullitt" mustangs found in a Mexican junkyard. - Cali-to-Death Valley on 3/19/17 at 4:25 pm
I grew up about a mile from Guadalupe Canyon Road where they filmed the final part of the chase scene, including where the guy dumped the motorcycle and the crash into the gas station. The Sheriff's Office had set up an area for people to watch the chase go by. In the movie, the chase instantly ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Who ducked and covered? - Cali-to-Death Valley on 3/14/17 at 10:10 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
