California's finances are in the toilet - and probably already flushed - and state workers cannot even be paid. Now, there has been a massive raid and $1 billion of marijuana has been confiscated. Just a little advice to Gov. Arnold - package it, sell it on the streets, charge sales tax - PAYROLL MET!!
I'm just saying - sooner or later marijuana legalities will be on the ballot, but California is in such dire straits - I'm sure there is a market for this product. Silly me, even if the largest Mexican drug cartels are involved - rather than have a trial, send those back to Mexico and I'm sure their bosses will figure out how to deal with them - saves court time.
I'm sure there are plenty of arguments on this front...so let it be known this is tongue-in-cheek. (**Sort of.)
The NAKED COWBOY from NYC, is a write-in candidate for the Mayor of New York position. His resume' isn't too shabby. He has a degree in political sciences and is the son of a councilman (not sure of locale). I give him credit for even thinking he has a chance against Michael Bloomberg's BILLIONS. I guess "dress code" is one of the platforms he is promoting - go figure! I would imagine he wants more "casual" attire for everything.
The glorious fence as erected this very day!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looking to the back of the fence, going UNDER my huge pine tree.
I received a call from another neighbor this afternoon, asking me "do you own a tape measure?" I'm like, "well, yes." He wanted me to go measure the height of the fence. I told him I thought it was a 6 foot fence, but when the guys were nailing it together - it towered over both of them. Well, guess what?? it is EIGHT feet tall. The zoning ordinance is NO higher than 6 foot.
These people have screwed up from the beginning, by NOT getting a building permit, which is the way to start a project like this. When getting the permit, a plan has to be submitted to the Zoning Board (which I was President of for six years), they would see that all criteria is met, i.e., dimensions. the next stop is to post a Legal Notice in the paper with a deadline for all those in the neighborhood to express agreement or disagreement. Then a Zoning Board hearing would be held to arrive at a final decision. Usually, if there are none disagreeing, the permit is issued immediately.
I do not want these people to lose the huge sum of money they have tied up in this fence....but I don't want the fence more. Hopefully, there will be an amicable solution to this situation soon.
Time to post this, I have been hacking at it for a good deal of the day. My how my mind wanders. Catch ya..............Later............
