Well it's not Camelot. The cast of characters in there now have nothing better to do than operate illegal board meetings since they are in violation of SB61, and plan schemes to buy marina property while they are involved a lawsuit. Ridiculous! At least the last board were dynastic in nature and unleashed widespread havoc of epic proportion. A real honest-to-goodness dictatorship run by a volunteer board. That's true dedication, the likes of which we'll probably never see again.

I'm walk-in here. It's a racket. Sell the golf course, close the market and the Riviera's will wisp off like a ghost spirit at hospice.

The only thing most people want, which should be obvious by the turnout at the monthly HOA meetings, is to be left alone. Who gave them the right to harass and fine people? Not the CC&R's or By-laws. If keeping homeowners from trashing their properties, which affects the housing values, is your concern, go after them for allowing substandard living conditions. One has only to walk or ride their bike around the neighborhood to see many rental properties that look scandalous. Otherwise, people who wish to improve their properties, invest in beautifying the neighborhood, should be encouraged, instead of treated as criminals for not asking the permission of the HOA to make their properties better. I can only believe they want to make money off people, not uphold some notion of the CC&R's which were never officially amended by a 51% of the homeowner membership, and are selectively applied. Stirling-Davis BTW, was created for condominium communities, it really doesn't fit this type of large-scale development, as the concept of uniformity goes right out of the window here.

Your right. It's a racket.
I knew a family from Tomales Bay and they purchased a two story cabin in the Riv's. They're dairy ranchers and the laberos amigos are the victim of choice. The ranch is a fly invested pile of dung and not uncommon. The ranch hand cabin had soiled diapers piled out side the front door and the dog was running around with one in it's mouth. The ranch owners don't even care, that they don't care, they just milk the cows.
The ranch owners went to their home cabin at the Riv's for a week and partied in the same clothes the whole time. They even took in a nice show at Konocti Harbor. When they talked, it was about cows. Why they bought a two story cabin there is, because it is there.

What i'm getting at is, you just don't know what you've really really got until you've been had. You know like the economy. But the Republican rancher type will keep on keepin on. Until the community gets tired of being milked like a bovine, that's the kind of people that will gravitate there. What I mean...You Know what you really really got... Your friend.

There is nothing you can say about substandard living conditions that would shock me. I have been in the social services field since the mid 1980's and have seen urban and rural poverty up close and personal. I lived in a tenement building in Manhatten in a small room off a kitchen for two years. It was $60.00 a month. The size of the cockroaches in the place were 2 inches long and waterbugs the size of small birds. They were the norm, not the exception. But while I was in NYC, I experienced fabulous art, music and culture that were worth any sort of hardship I may have endured. The sad part of the social and environmental situations people find themselves in, is not being able to apply some perspective. The folks who only know poverty, have not had opportunities to experience culture, cannot savor the differences and similarities that exist between people and are missing the key element of change, which is tolerance. Your friend too.

In that case we must assume the roaches "by example" do well in those conditions. The steam from the underworld must permeate the structures then incubate some kind of fungus as a food source. I heard that NY makes its own gravy when it rains, maybe there's something to that myth... A vary interesting approach was applied to finding Bin Ladin via Google SAT and endangered animal patterns of relocation. I wonder if we maybe able to use the same technique to examine the Republican cockroach as it relocates.

It took a Holocaust survivor to reveal to me how bad some of the local dairy products are. She said it taste like the wax remains of carrion in white wash. She also said she had eaten telephone pole that had more flavor then some of the cheese coming from the local ranches. Lord I had some bread from the farmers market that kept me coiled up on the couch with a stomach ache for three day's. I buried it with an upside down Joseph and poured Steele vintage on it.

Yes as is, that may be. But I like to think I am a survivor too, much like the cockroachs in NYC, if an analogy can be made. If students at UCLA can track the whereabouts of Bin Laden and the Washington Un-Intelligensia cannot, that means we are being disinformed and lead astray by our own government on purpose! It's shocking, like having a weenie roast and forgeting the franks!

Had I not experienced you firsthand, your creative, hilarious commentary may have confused me as it does others. I'm sure if you read some of my first postings over a year ago, they affected me in the same way. We sheeple only use a small portion of our brains you know. Thanks for the laughs today, your friend.

The HOA is just about defunct. Johnny D has brought the illegal board, both past and present, to their knees. All the "rogue" operating standards are coming into the light. You don't need an association; HOAs are cottage businesses that line the pockets of dishonest board/office staff and greedy attorneys. It is a known fact most of the HOA managers are on the take. The whole concept of fining people because of infractions of arbitrary "rules" is disgusting. Support "WE THE PEOPLE"! Thank you John and Darrell for all your hard work and being faithful to the needs of the community.

I think i've been here early on. There was an article about some grave robbers in Lower Lake looking for Indian beads. That's close to the first Topix post arriving on the net R-Bee.

You have a point there. Was it on the Anasazi Indians, or local dentist gone mad shooting wife in face? Both seem relevant for this area.

I think they were toothless with rucksacks and flashlights. Somebody caught them on a mission near a graveyard in Lower Lake. Doctors are not prosecuted apparently. Who would sew up the officer if you got on their bad side. Even hospice is overlooked as i understand it. Just what the doctor ordered... There's old gold, gems, guns and antiques it's cash and carry, pot growers sell pot and carry guns. Do you recall, the county abatement officer incident? It may sound harsh but not for profits write their own pay check first so be careful. Kind of like look who works where, "the relationship" those are the inroads Gandhi warned of. It's kind of like the scene from Star Wars when the guy pulled off the helmet and revealed a worm. That's why I can't help but laugh when I see these characreaters, for real. It's like some kind of old Twilight Zone crossed with a martian in the state capitol Total Recall flick.

What about dentists though? Do you remember the character Zell De Weise Angel, the Nazi dentist, in the movie Marathon Man? He wanted to know if it was safe. I've been scared of dentists ever since. What was the county abatement officer incident? Were they paid off in blood and buffalo meat?

I don't think i've seen that movie. It was the article headlined in the Bee
"County employee charged with possession of marijuana"...
I believe it said he had 126 pounds of marijuana in the vehicle and he was driving radically at 3am in the morning in Lucerne with a loaded hand gun along for the ride.

I told him to come back right away. He said he needed a mint or some gum, and was looking for a store that was open after 9:00pm, but couldn't find one. The gun in question was loaded... with Gatoraid. The weed was a gift from a good friend. Typical tabloid reporting again from the Bumble Bee. Lake County - a scandal waiting to happen!

I suggest they follow me to Alaska so we can put on the old bear skin at the potlatch. We're packin up the beetle and we've got room for one more spring break idiot. Mexico's out of the picture but who cares, when you can go to Alaska. Come with us, bring your snow board spark an owl and surf a Glacier will roast a LAKE County toad for luck, before we head out...

I think I would be more inclined to head south rather than north, but it's hard to change plans at the last minute. Have fun wherever you go.
