New Year fireworks in Bratislava.Image via Wikipedia

New Year’s Eve is always a fun time; people all over the world celebrate December 31. This is a time for people to reflect on the good and the bad of the previous year. Everyone is making New Year resolutions, promising themselves their going to stick to it. My New Years resolution is to help and many people I come in contact with.

There are a lot of parties going on around the Bay Area on New Years Eve here are some Fire Work displays to ring in the New Year. In San Francisco you can see fireworks at Embarcadero-Pier 14, Epic Roasthouse and Waterbar, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, and Hotel Vitale to name a few. In the East Bay the Alameda Port and Hornblower Cruise & Events in Berkeley has fireworks displays. Solano County Vallejo has a fireworks display at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The South bay doesn’t have fireworks, but you can still ring in the New Year at the Agenda Bar and Lounge and the Fahrenheit Ultra Lounge & Restaurant in San Jose.

 I know there is a lot of drinking, if your going to drink don’t drive. I know you don’t want to start the New Year off by or taking a life, yours or someone else’s, so be responsible. If you need Courier Service for you party supplies contact Streetwise Special Delivery Inc. Courier Service.
Have a Happy and safe New Year.

Official presidential portrait of Barack Obama...Image via WikipediaPresident Obama’s tax bill has the Democratic lawmakers feeling that President Obama made needless concessions to Republicans. Now they’re having a tizzy fit, Republicans warning that it better pass or else in other words nobody will get anything. I say they both have a lot of nerve!

 The Democrats and Republican lawmakers I feel are acting like kids. They are not trying to come together for the sake of America. All their worried about is who gets the most from this tax bill. Tuesday or Wednesday  is supposed to be the final vote. Can these two parties come together? I sure hope so, because we the tax payers the ones who put these idiots in office will suffer. I think President Obama is doing his best comprising with both the Democrats and Republicans. President Obama is in my opinion the only one looking out for the people. He signed a Heath Care Reform Bill the first ever. If that’s not looking out for the people, then I don’t know what is. I can’t say that about that Bush joker we had in office for way too long. I feel President Obama is getting a bad rap. He came into to office when everything was messed up. The critics expect him to fix him to fail. I say to all you critics if it were not, for Bush era then maybe we wouldn’t be in the mess that were in.

Protestors exspress their opinions in regard t...Image via Wikipedia

The sentencing of Johannes Mehserle did not surprise me one bit. This
kind of injustice against people of color has been going on for centuries.
Johannes Mehserle gets sentenced to two years and is going to serve only
seventy two days. Really! Taking a mans life is not as important as
killing a dog. Michael Vick had to serve twenty three months for his
crime. What in the heck is wrong with our justice system. Just because
Mehserle was a police officer he got away with taking a life. Police
officers all over this country have been taking lives and getting away
with it. I say that's bull crap! People get sentenced to prison for years
for doing drugs, their not hurting anyone but themselves. Know wonder
people of color in the cities all over America don't like or trust law

What happened at the Bart station in Oakland California happens more
often then people want to believe, I say to those non believers, people
take the blinders off and wake the heck up.This could have happened to
anybody of color, and it will continue to happen as long as we have cops
like Johannes Mehserle on police forces all over this country. People I
know are always getting harassed by the police just because of the color
of their skin. Oscar Grant was face down and was not resisting arrest ,
but yet he's dead. I feel Mehserle meant to shoot Grant he knew darn well
the difference between his gun and his tasser. Johannes Mehserle is lying
and he knows it and God knows it and he will have to face what he did
one. Johannes Mehserle and all police officers who have taking a life
unjustly, know the saying "do on to others as you would have them do
on to you."

Philippine CheckImage via WikipediaYou here in the news all time people committing fraud. Taking  peoples life savings, ruining their credit and possibly getting them charged with fraud just because they were sent a check for thousands of dollars. The check looks real it's from a well known bank. With economic times being so hard, the average person would deposit it in their checking account. The bank more than likely would accept it not thinking twice about it. Then a week or two goes by, the check does not clear. The banks calling  and asking you when, how, where did you get the check and threatening to charge you with fraud.

 I live in San Jose California,  I received a check while I was on vacation,  when I got back I was going through my mail, I open up this FedEx envelope there was this white envelope inside and nothing else. So I open it up and it is a check for $2,150, automatically I said who would send me a check out of the blue I could not think of anyone. I called the phone number on the FedEx package and left a message for the sender to call me back and let me know why they sent me this check. After a couple of days not hearing from the sender,  I got on the Internet and found the number of the company who supposed to have sent the check The Methodist Hospital Harvey Smith 6565 Fannin St. Houstin TX 77030 called them and they said they don't send checks by FedEx it's fake. I knew that this check was to good to be true. The check was draw on JP Morgan Chase Bank 10430 Highland Manor Dr. 3rd Floor Tampa FL. 336610-0000.

People I know times are hard and money is tight, so if you get receive a check by FedEx, UPS or by regular mail. Do your homework don't take it as a gift from God or who ever. Check it out throughly it could save you a lot of aggravation. Like my mother used to say "all money is not good money".Word to the wise don't be a victim.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - OCTOBER 31:  A young boy p...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeHalloween

Halloween is around the corner and it seems like each year it gets spookier than the last. Many believe that Halloween's origins are found in the Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts, who were located in Ireland, the UK and the northern parts of France, celebrated their New Year on the first of November. Samhain was celebrated the night before the New Year.
On October 31, the night before the New Year, the Celts celebrated Samhain. This day, they believed, was when the ghosts of the deceased returned to earth because the boundaries between the living world and the dead world blurred. Trick or treating comes from during the celebration,
the poor would come out and beg for food from the more wealthy families. When the families gave them pastries called soul cakes, they asked for the poor to pray for their relatives that had passed away.Dressing up in a costume for Halloween began many years ago adults began dressing in elaborate costumes for Halloween parties, also known as Masquerade parties, before it became an annual event for
children. With Hollywood movies appearing as time went by, gave us inspiration to make scary and creepy looking costumes that are extremely popular. Halloween is the one of the greatest and best known party on our  holidays on our calandar. Halloween ranks right behind Christmas in the
amount of money spent on it, for decorations , costumes, candy , scarey movies,and food. I personally love Halloween especially having two children to take trick or treating and also it is a fun way to dress up or go to a haunted house. You have plenty of options on October 31st, and one
thing for sure is you are getting lots of candy and treats. I also work for a courier service Streetwise Special Delivery, which is available for your delivery services 24/7 even on this fun holiday. You can get your treats delivered to you or to anyone anywhere. Check out our website, and we are
ready for a delivery on this spooky night.

Thank You,

Rescued Chilean Minors

Oxygen helmets in mine rescues (LOC)Image by The Library of Congress via Flickr       The Chilean Mine rescue was a very scary story in the beginning. It then turned into this beautiful moment. Thirty three miners were trapped underground in a collapsed copper mine for sixty nine days. Rescue teams lifted the miners to surface one by one in a narrow, missile-like capsule. It took a lot of help and work from everybody to help save the men lives, and I thought it was a really nice chance for everybody to come together and help make this happen.
For this rescue it also cost a very large amount, and that is what is so awesome about the whole story.

      There were Drilling Experts that did every single thing to come together for these strangers. A drilling expert flew from an operation in Afghanistan to lend a hand and help with the drilling. US sunglasses maker Oakley contributed by donating thirty five pairs of sunglasses that usually sell for around $200 each, to protect the miners eyes when they returned to the surface. These men never gave up because they have family's and their children on their mind and tried they're hardest to survive threw this crisis. It shows hope, faith, and love can get you through the hardest moment of your life.

      This opened up my eyes and shows all of us, that good old fashion helping and sticking together goes a very long way. I'm sure this is an unforgettable moment for the men and also to everyone across the world who kept hope and prayers for them to be safe and rescued.
Thanks to everybody coming together, it definitely made a great change in the survivors lives. I am proud to share my thoughts of this very amazing moment.

San Francisco GiantsImage via Wikipedia.
It has been 8 years since the San Francisco Giants have been in the National League Championship. Cody Ross it a home run and drove in the go ahead run with a seventh-inning single, leading the San Francisco Giants to a  3 to 2 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Each game was decided by one run and  this made for a great series. If San Francisco can beat the Phillies it will be 21 years since the San Francisco Giants have been in the world series.

The last time was in 1989, it was the third game of that series. The San Francisco Giants were at home. They were warming up and all of a sudden the earth started shaking. It was the Loma Prieta earthquake that shook all of California. San Francisco Giants fans do you believe the San Francisco Giants can make it to the World Series? I don't know. I am not a fan of baseball, but I sure hope they do. Goooooooo Giants!

SACRAMENTO – Today, the California High-Speed Rail Authority was awarded a $194 million grant by the Federal Railroad Administration for preliminary engineering and environmental analysis.

San Bruno, California, panorama, looking towar...Image via WikipediaPEOPLE SCAMMING SAN BRUNO COUNTY

I know times are hard for everyone in the United States of America. The unemployment rate is high, people are wondering how they are going to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. The County of San Bruno is having a tough enough time trying to get people who were affected in the natural gas explosion on September 9, 2010, some kind of aid so they can get back on their feet.

When every there is a disaster you will always have the scammers coming out of the holes they live in trying to get something for nothing.
Praying on the weak and distraught. San Bruno has had its share of these low life bottom feeders. Daniel Stansbury of Los Altos is the fifth person who claimed he was a victim of San Bruno natural gas explosion.

These type of people have the nerve to plead not guilty. They need to be held without bail, because if they would do something like this what’s stopping them from jumping bail. It sure makes me mad when I here stories like this, because everyone is having hard times. For all you scammers out their you will get yours in this world and in the after life.

Singling out Singletary!

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary...Image via Wikipedia
As an avid pro football fan and former television sportscaster, I've followed the career of Mike Singletary with awe and respect....from his playing days as a Hall of Fame middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears, to his recent post as headcoach of the San Francisco 49ers.
His honest, no-nonsense style has added a positive swagger to the team, and in two short years he's reincarnated the 49ers back into playoff form, in my opinion!
However, last week Mike un-characteristically lost his cool during a tense T.V. interview in Santa Clara with KPIX-TV's sports director Dennis O'Donnell, after the head coach was asked about difficulty getting plays called during the team's first game...a blowout loss in Seattle.
For the first time ever, I questioned Singletary's integrity in handling this situation. Yes, it may have been bad timing!  Yes, Singletary looked tired and agitated from the outset! 
Yes, the team was preparing for an intense Monday night game against the defending world champion New Orleans Saints, and this was probably just his "pappa bear" style of watching over his cubs!.
Still,   there was no call for Singletary to snap at O'Donnell following a few reverently asked and fairly phrased questions about his expectations of quarterback Alex Smith regarding play calling and clock management!
"I don't want to talk about any of that", shouted Singletary. "I only want to talk about New Orleans if you want to talk about them. Next Question!"
O'Donnel looked stunned, Singletarly appeared vindicated, and the interview ended abruptly in embarrasing fashion. 
Frankly, I was more embarrased for Singletary, and ironically.... the 49ers ended up losing a heart breaker  to the Saints that night at Candlestick Park.(now called Bill Walsh Field)
The story doesn't end there, however, as O'Donnell was immediately removed as host of this "Coaches Corner" interview segment, and replaced with field reporter Kim Coyle. 
Question!  WHY does the reporter(interviewer) ALWAYS get the short end of the stick?
In this instance,  the show is part of a contract partnership whereas the 49ers have editorial input power,  and spokesman Bob Lange claims the change in hosts was "a joint agreement to give future interviews a better dynamic".
I think it was more the case of Singletary getting ticked off at O'Donnell, and wanting a new interviewer!  Either way, the move sparked many heated comments from fans around the Bay Area such as:
"O'Donnell did nothing wrong. It was Singletarly who acted like an idiot!"
"He's lucky he isn't in a more aggressive media market like Philly, Chicago, or New York....where Singletarly would never make it!'  
"You get your ass handed to you by a team like Seattle with 15 new starters, and THAT is a situation where you have to be smarter. Get this guy out of here!"   
"Singletary is now officially on the NUT LIST.  The reporter just asked him questions that any fan would want to know the answers to....and the coach says the interviewer baited him?  How stupid!"
"We're talking post concussion syndrome here.  If this is how Singletary's handling things, he's un-prepared for the job, and ON the short list for goodbye coach land!"
Ok. Ok! These comments may be a little "over the top",  because what happened to O'Donnell is just the way things often work!  When I was a TV sports reporter I saw the same thing happen to a few colleagues.
While I always played fair, I was also careful to maintain healthy relationships with head coaches.  It was either that or start looking for another job!
Five years ago,  'KNBR' sports radio host Larry Krueger was fired outright in San Francisco  for harsh, questionable, and boarderline racist comments directed at Giants baseball manager Felipe Alou, along with several Central American-born teammates.
This time the coach was dead right to complain and DEMAND that  Krueger be fired!  However, O'Donnell didn't deserve his demotion!
Fortunately, he's still the sports director and lead sports anchor at KPIX, and Singletary did express a little bit of  remorse following the incident.  
"I say things that I feel, and I have to do a better job of not letting the media bait me the way they did in last week's incident.  I have to do a better job at that end, and I have to be smarter in that sort of situation".
After the fact, I'm still pulling for Mike Singletary to succeed, and,  while Kim Coyle should fill in nicely as his new show host, O'Donnell is also still around, and will survive.
Let's just hope for the 49ers, and their fans... that THEY are still around when playoff time arrives!
After all,  this is the year Singletary's team is highley expected  to step up and take part in post season play--or else HE may very well be looking for another coaching job!
Good luck to the 49ers, and, being fonder of their East Bay Area Rival in Oakland....GO RAIDERS!!
Thanks, and stay logged on to
Sincerely, PeteCam4

Gas Explosion, San Bruno, CaliforniaImage by DigitalGlobe-Imagery via FlickrOn Thursday September 9, 2010, a neighborhood in San Bruno was devastated when a natural gas line exploded. People where get home from work, children were getting home from after school activities. Ready to prepare dinner, get started on home work and do thing all of us do after a long day away home. Then all of a sudden everyone was running for their lives, as their neighborhood went up in flames. A lot of people escaped with their lives, but some did not. It is a good thing this happened during the day time instead of at night when people were in their beds asleep. The casualties could have been enormous.

This kind of thing could have happened in any neighborhood in this country. I hope and pray that PG&E move swiftly to find out the cause to this explosion and prevent it from happening again. Streetwise Special Delivery Courier Service sends our prays out to the community in San Bruno California.

A modern Arabic Quran with Persian translation...Image via Wikipedia

First of all burning of any Holy Book, I my opinion is wrong. The Rev.Terry Jones is out of his so called Christian mind, he is supposed to be a Christian but he is a devil in disguise. He is a bigot and is saying every Muslim is no good and their Quran should be burned. His actions on September 11, 2010 would open old wounds that have been trying to kneel since that horrific day nine years ago. The Rev. Terry Jones actions will get a lot of people riled up especially the Muslim community. Who knows what they will do. Over in Afghanistan their already burning the American Flag and saying down with American Christianity. The Quran hasn’t been burned yet.

Rev. Terry Jones wants to burn the Quran because the Islamic community in New York wants to build a Islamic Center near ground zero. I think if the American people don’t want it built then they should protest and make their voices heard. Well The Rev. Terry Jones called off the burning of the Quran. This is a good idea on his part, because of all the violence his actions would have had on our Military and the American people. I think some people take this freedom of speech to serious. They don’t really take into consideration the consequences of what their saying will have on someone.

There are far too many sad stories in the Bay Area these day

A rest in peace sign.Image via WikipediaThere are far too many sad stories in the Bay Area these days that support the case that "only the good die young"! 

18-year old Kendra Fallon of San Francisco decided to spend her summer vacation on the other side of the world, volunteering to help kids at an orphanage in Nepal.

Unfortunately, her efforts were cut short Wednesday when Kendra and 14 others were killed in a plane crash while flying in bad weather outside Katmandu, thus depriving us of another bright star, who spent most of her life helping and inspiring others to make the world a better place!

That same night another tear-jerking tragedy hit in Oakland, California, when 13-year old track star Jimon Clark was shot and killed while walking home alongside his identical twin brother on Bankroft Avenue.

Like Kendra, Jimon was an over-achiever who's good deeds, magnetic personality, and bright future inspired fellow students, friends, family, teachers, and coaches.

He was eager to begin classes at Skyline High school, and set the track and field world on fire with numerous medals, as Kendra had done achieving countless honors at St. Ignatious College Preparatory.

Now, sadly, both Kendra's and Jimon's bright flames of hope and inspiration....have been extinguished.....far too soon!   

I get sick each time I hear about tragedies like these which happen far too often, and I can't help but hope for some kind of silver lining, some kind of inspiration, some kind of good  that can possibly add comfort to survivors?

San Jose football star Pat Tillman gave up a million dollar NFL career to join the US Army Rangers and go to Afghanistan to fight terrorism immediately after 9/11. 

When he was killed in action on April 22nd, 2004, I wept....having watched Pat play for Leland High school in 1993, and then as an Arizona Cardinal when they defeated the Raiders at the Oakland Coliseum in 2001.

It wasn't just how Tillman played football, but the positive way he tackled life, challenging its tough deeds in a quiet, determined way that pumped-up everyone around him!

Why did he have to go so soon....and, why did someone have to senselessly gun down a bright and promising young 22-year old city-councilman from Fairfield named Matt Garcia in September, 2008?

Like Tillman, Garcia was an up and coming star with the rare ability to relate to 12-year olds the same way he did 65-year olds, and who also died ironically, due to a fluke case of mistaken identity!

So did Albert Cobarrubias, an honor graduate of San Jose State University, and the city's first homicide victim of 2010....who was shot and killed while playing pool in a friends garage.

Some drive by, gang-banging "scumbag" miss took Albert for someone else, and may never be caught and punished for his crime!

Fortunately, Matt Garcia's killer was found, and prosecuted, however, that shouldn't be his family's only comfort, nor should it be a concerned society's only consolation!

We need to rise up and remember everything good that came from these fallen hero's, and try to live our lives as they lived theirs, so that our children and youngsters learn too!

I vow to live like and remember Kendra Fallon, Jimon Clark, Matt Garcia, Albert Cobarrubias, and Pat Tillman, as soul's who's many actions replaced words, yet, who's soft spoken way commanded the attention and respect of everyone they came to know!

They, and so many like them....will be missed!

Thanks, and be sure to log on to for more blogs.

eggsImage via WikipediaBILLIONS OF TAINTED EGGS

Egg lovers like my self are you pissed off, about this latest Salmonella outbreak? I know I am. I don’t understand why the FDA has not put stricter rules on farms that mass produce our food supply. This has been happening more often than I care to count.

I think the two Iowa farms Wright County Eggs and Hillandale Farms should be shut down. They knew that their supplier Jack DeCoster has been in news in the 90’s for heath a safety violations. Doing  business with a person like this is bound to have a bad effect on you. DeCoster Egg Farm should have been put out of business along time ago. Jack DeCoster apparently has no regard for human life. He his a man that is all about the money and that’s all. I blame the FDA as well, for dropping the ball when it came to Jack DeCoster. The FDA should have been watching Jack DeCoster with a fine tooth comb.

 People like myself with a weakened immune systems, are at such a high risk to becoming ill or dying from any contaminated food. The only way I know how to prevent myself and my family from getting sick is not to use eggs. I’m making my own food using egg substitute. When I eat out I make sure I know that what I’m eating  and it does not have eggs in it. Egg lovers hopefully this Salmonella outbreak get under control quickly, try to stay well.
