re: What is the OT's take on parents paying for adult children on a family vacation? - Cali-to-Death Valley
We're taking our adult kids, their spouses, and our grandson to Italy next summer for 3 weeks. We asked them to pay for their airfare from SFO to Rome, then we're picking up the tab for everything else, housing, meals, flights to Sardegna and Sicily. Don't see anything trashy about it....

re: Beyond Death: The Science of the Afterlife - Cali-to-Death Valley
I'm a believer, so I try to live my life like one (I fail more than I should), do no harm, be a good person, treat my fellow humans as I would like to be treated and try to leave this the world just a little better than it was before I got here. If my beliefs are true-then I've lived the way I was s...

re: I need to learn to speak Italian - Cali-to-Death Valley
Even though I've spoken Italian my entire life, I found that I could have gotten by fairly easily speaking English in Milan, Rome, Florence. Just be advised the farther south you go, the less the people will make an attempt to speak English. The exception would be Sorrento. Napoli, forget it. Sicil...

re: What's The Longest You've Stayed Awake? - Cali-to-Death Valley
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...

re: How do I know if an old man wearing a WW2 or Korea hat really served? - Cali-to-Death Valley
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. ...

re: Older black women who treat you like one of their children - Cali-to-Death Valley
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...

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

re: 6-figure salaries considered low income in some Bay Area counties - Cali-to-Death Valley
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...
