Great article. Good insight for every gardener. This winter I have planted cruciferous vegetables;Read More cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and brussels sprouts. Additionally, I have planted; celery, carrots, lettuce, and beets. Everything is doing well. My family and I enjoy the bounties from our winter garden. I find a winter garden easier to maintain than the summer garden. (less weeds). Fava bean greenery are the best as it provides "green manure" for the spring/summer garden in addition to the improvement to the dirt you mentioned. Keep up the good work. Cliff

Cliff -- Thanks! I completely forgot to plant Brussels sprouts. They're delicious and are best as aRead More winter crop. Good add! Enjoy your garden.

There is no one size fits all in most things and surely in raising a child. As is common sense soRead More uncommon Personality and value system plays with the potential hero event if it should present itself. One might look the other way to one who might do whatever turns out to be a hero. Another point is 'what is a hero' ? Several hero's of mine are not known to be hero's. They are mine because they are my surrogate fathers who made me what I am today. A hero does not have to save lives in the news media sense, but saving/helping or making a difference If you teach your child to go around looking to become a hero (I've come across a few), then they might become one or become a victim themselves to then look foolish Just look to have a good line of communication throughout their lives. Instill a value system/metrics of your own or want him/her to have. Also, teach by example both in the home and out there. DO NOT depend on the school system to raise your child. Their job is only to teach and fine tune on 'specific' topics. Parenting is more than providing a roof, food and company. One key component to my parenting and my own day to day: "....know you will have regrets...manage your regrets NOW whenever a decision is made..." Shallow, superficial, self-centered, narcissistic folks do NOT understand or care about that point of view

Teach them a value for life, and help them to understand honor, courage and committment. I have beenRead More credited by a local government with having saved the lives of 12 people while placing myself in great personal danger, I have also been credited with having saved the life of a drowning child, and as having taken tiff possitions on issues that others disagree with. I do not consider myself a hero but I do consider myself to be a man who understands what it is to do the right thing. As a US Marine serving during the Vietnam war I had the great honor to have served with heros. Unfortunately they are nolonger with us.

I think it is a great idea to teach your kids how to be a hero. They can easily learn other thingsRead More from it like bravery, courage, and just being kind.

So did Council Member Pat Burt's amendments to make the installation of a left-turn arrow onto StRead More Francis, and to keep the driveway in the rear of the Shell gas station to open, as conditions of approval of the project, pass? It's clear that Pat Burt has the utmost concern for the convenience of motorists. Was there any discussion by the council regarding bicycle access to the shopping center? Embarcadero Rd is pretty awful for bicycling, with average vehicle speeds well in excess of the 25 mph speed limit (even though it's a residential street with schools located along it), and contains no bicycle accommodations whatsoever, not even signs, even though it's smooth, flat, and offers the most direct connection between the Edgewood Plaza Shopping Center and downtown Palo Alto, and is used by hundreds of cyclists to get to school or work every day.

My adult sons thank me for being so involved in their lives. They had many friends who they grew upRead More with and never spent time with their busy parents. They loved the fact that I never missed any of their football, baseball or basketball games. It was a nice way to connect with them. We as parents need to be available to our children when they need us.

@donna Well said. One of these days, if I'm lucky enough to become a mom, I'll be faced with theseRead More very decisions. I've put off having kids for a while, knowing that my life would completely change... In retrospect tho, I like to think I made it easier on my mom by being in band and mathletics instead of sports when I was younger.

Thanks for attending Stacie! We hope to get our residents more involved with planning the future ofRead More housing in San Mateo County. Your blog provides great information from today's conference. Just a correction on the HEART loan link - the website is www.heartofsmc.org, and HLC's website is www.hlcsmc.org. Thanks again, and hope to see you at our future events! -Serena Ip, HLC Community Builder

Maybe a redundent pumping system should be used here? Most likely a lot cheaper that having guysRead More working all night on Overtime and that "Over night" shipping must have cost a bundle. Jeff
