Anyone know Mary Adkins or Patricia Chandler?

I have gotten some strange emails from them and don't know if they are a hoax or not.

Anyone else get emails from them?

Want a nice day? Trash the Ebola OPs today

There is no Ebola outbreak in the U.S.
The Giants are going to the World Series

Ebola on the air = ratings = ad revenue

We don't have an Ebola outbreak
Last week NFL
News not what's trending

Ebola has kicked the stuffings outbid the NFL

Nobody cares about the bad guys of the NFL anymore. Just Ebola Ebola Ebola 24/7

Unless you’re in a setting where you’re a healthcare worker or a family member caring for a person

who is sick, you probably couldn’t get Ebola if you wanted to.”


Do I have this right? There are DUers who

live in areas where there is a tight Senate race and yet they will not be voting because the Dem candidate is not liberal enough or voted for some war resolution or other?

Our training person did not know what the T in LGBT stands for. In an email that went to everyone

working for the county she wrote (names and places are x'ed out to protect the innocent)

LGBT Q&A: xxxx xxxxxx, from xxxxx xxxxx, xxxxx xxxxxx, is generously offering to engage in a dialogue with the audience to discuss the nuances of working with population who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transvestite. The learning objectives of this training will be to enlarge cultural awareness while working with this population as well as acquire practical knowledge about the same.
Date: 10/23/14 9AM-12PM

The correction apology email:

The attached has a description of the upcoming trainings with a new narrative of Mr. xxxx xxxxx LGBT presentation.
This email is a formal apology for my mistake, my blunder really, in the previous description of the presentation.
It shows how much I need to be trained, someone told me today. I agree.
Again, my sincere apologies for my botch of words in how the original description went out and my gratitude for those who came forward and alerted our team of my mistake. Particular thanks to Mr. xxxx for his extreme courtesy towards me. I intend to live up to it.

Shows we still have a lot of work to do.

It is 102 degrees here on the Central Coast of CA

Our local beach, Surf, is closed do to shark sightings.
Strange October for us

I got this email about the 2nd Amendment from a Home Owner Association perspective. I am on a HOA

board of directors.

I am not going to attend this webinar but I find it disturbing that we have to cater to gunners rather than just restrict the presence of guns in our common areas.



The Second Amendment right to bear arms has become a subject of hot debate in recent months. Two attorneys discuss the issues involved in a community association's commitment to residents' safety and the presence of legal firearms in the community.


What liability does the association have to owners with respect to restricting, or failing to restrict, carrying guns in common areas?
What are the Second Amendment protections regarding an individual’s right to bear arms in a community association?
How can associations protect residents against disgruntled owners who may commit violent acts with firearms?

WOW weekend at Cal Poly San Louis Obispo

There is this undeveloped beach near Avila CA on the Central Coast. It is known as Pirates Cove. Just recently the Coastal Commission stopped San Luis Obispo county's attempt to "develop" the beach. We like it the way nature made it and are happy it will stay that way for a while yet.
It is also a clothing optional beach because there is no law in the area prohibiting nudity there. The cops leave it alone.
So that makes it the perfect place for college kids to bring their beer and weed and party.
This weekend was WOW weekend and upper class students brought hundreds of incoming freshmen to the breach to show them were to go to party down.
It was also beach clean up weekend and some students helped in the clean up.
I couldn't help but wonder if getting drunk and stoned on the beach has anything to do with the students prospects for after college. I think at least some if not a lot of them will be up to their ears in debt, unemployed and living with mom and dad in a few years. Party!
