It's hella expensive to be poor in California :-(
Yes it is. - vicster: full-bodied
Word. - Jed
truth. - Lnorigb
You ain't never lied. - Corinne L
Seriously. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Without a doubt. - Steve C
It's expensive to be poor in northern NJ, too. Only slightly lower than California, as long as you are not stupid enough to own a car. (insurance rates are crazy here) - April Russo
Gas is hella high, groceries keep going up, & they're gonna skyrocket as the drought continues. My water bill is nearly $100 a month & I don't have any water-using appliances outside the water heater. I've refused so far to give up all hope and cancel cable & internet, but the way food prices are going...sheesh. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm usually running a fan whatever room I'm in, & J uses a lot of electricity with TV & games & stuff. We do okay remembering to conserve but I know we could lower our usage. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Thank goodness for low income discounted rates - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
& my car insurance is above basic coverage and really cheap. That's lucky. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The high prices on fresh produce saddens me because I know a lot of it has to do with the drought. That's a crazy high water bill - have they come to check for leaks that would cause the high rate? - Corinne L
One of the things that really sucks about poverty is that you end up paying more for electricity. When you can't keep your freezer and fridge packed full, it costs more to run that refrigerator just to keep the few items you do have cold/frozen. The more food prices rise, the less you can afford to put in there, and the more you end up wasting on electricity. I have found that packing... more... - April Russo
I had no idea the fridge being full or empty affected the energy use. Ours is at least 15 years old, that might up the usage too huh? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
& my water bill is pretty average, our usage is within the "water saver" tier. But there's city & state surcharges, a sewer fee, etc. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
My fridge is 18 years old, so we are in similar situations when it comes to the age of our fridge. But yes, how much you do or don't have in it does affect energy usage. The less you have in it to hold the cold, the more frequently the compressor kicks on to cool it. - April Russo
I liken it to the Red Queen's Race: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Steven Perez from Android
If Malia goes to Cal or Stanford, you think the Obamas will move to The Bay in 2017?

For the next 80 mins I'll be watching my TV boyfriend, Endeavour Morse. Don't bug me please, it's the last time I'm seeing him for a while!

My cousin Avram normally lives on a boat in Ashkelon, Israel. I don't know if the marina is occupied during war, or if he's even in the country. I'm positive he's okay, he's been experiencing bombings & shit his whole life. but of course I worry.
He's opposed to so much of Israel's government & policies and has tried living other places but he says Israel is paradise so he keeps going back. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I can't imagine what the contradiction would do to me - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Whoa, autocorrect. His name is Avner. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
In 1957, a Dallas housewife had her recipe for cake made with German's Baking Chocolate published in a local paper. It became wildly popular, and soon people all over the USA were making and enjoying her German's chocolate cake.
Language being what it is, we all know it now as German chocolate cake, and I bet a bunch of y'all thought it came from Germany, huh? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Well, that explains why my grandmother used to grumble about it not being really German. - Jennifer Dittrich
That lady is the reason my childhood sucked. My mother loved that cake so much that she'd ordered it for everyone's birthday. I hate coconut, walnuts/pecans and chocolate cake. - Anika
Oh, yuck. - Jennifer Dittrich
My family went through a phase when we'd frequently purchase the frozen Pepperidge Farm German Chocolate Cake, and I remember having at least one birthday cake that was GCC. I think it's the reason why I'm not a fan of coconut these days (unless it's moist, chewy macaroons). - Corinne L
Pretty much my favorite cake and yeah, it all started for me with the Pepperidge Farm version. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Wonder how many people were initiated into GCC by Pepperidge Farm? :-) - Corinne L
I dunno, but I'm one of em! Moms didn't make cakes but she sure bought a lot of the Pepperidge Farms ones. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
It's funny to me cos she's the sweetest, nicest lady but they just get her really mad.
My El Salvadoran neighbor doesn't like our Mexican neighbors. To the point where she rolls her eyes when she talks about them.

The charges against Shanesha Taylor has been dropped!! Taylor was arrested back in march for leaving her children in the car during a job interview. This morning a deal was reached, the deal will require Taylor to complete parenting and substance abuse classes as well a establishing an education and childcare trust fund for her three kids. With each education trust fund to have $10,000 in. The money will come the fundraisers that was set up on Taylor’s behalf to help with legal fees and other expenses. A total of $144,775 was raised. $144,775 from over four thousand donors.
 
By entering into this agreement and program, Taylor avoided a potential two year probation or a possible eight year sentence. 
 
If Taylor fails to follow the conditions of the agreement, the criminal charges will be reinstated. 
  
so glad her babies have trust funds. activism at work!
