Closing California Parks Called Bad Plan

Our legislators have failed to manage State finances for so long now they are hardly likely to do the right thing in this difficult economy we face today.
The fact is, the State budget is completely out of balance with possible or actual income that serious cuts must be made.
Every recipient of State money puts forth a strong argument for NOT cutting their budget.
Simply put, if there was money available they would not be cut.
So, where to cut? Start with bloated administration in virtually every organization. Why haven't the Legislators taken pay cuts? Reduced their expenses dramatically?
Chances are good that they will make minimal cuts in everything but salaries or retirement benefits.

Living with Rattlesnakes

Far too many people are simply terrorized by any snake, poisonous or not, and react by killing any snake they come upon if possible. We live in the country and deal with several rattlesnakes each year around the property. We also see the beautiful Rosy Boa, banded King Snake, and ordinary gopher snake.
All of these snakes, including the rattlesnake, are useful in keeping the rodent population under some semblance of control.
Rattlesnakes are rarely aggressive unless badly aggravated. Give them some room and they will leave you alone. Don't 'play' with them. They have no sense of 'fun'.
