Comment on chocolate ice cream sandwiches by JP

Oh, boy, is anything better than an ice cream sandwich? Even a bad ice cream sandwich is a good ice cream sandwich, and the best part may be licking the cookie off your fingers at the very end. I will definitely be making these. Today is the hottest day of the year, so far, in the Bay Area. These will really come in handy. I love all your frozen treats!! Thanks!

Mapped: How California home price jumped $26 every hour

Just how crazy is California’s homebuying market? Well, my trusty spreadsheet’s analysis of California Association of Realtors’ sales data for May shows the median selling price of an existing single-family home at $818,260 median, up $230,190 in a year. That translates to an increase equal to $26.28 every hour over the past 12 months. Cheap mortgage rates have fueled the buying frenzy out of a pandemic-chilled economy. Last month’s statewide homebuying pace was up 87% from May 2020’s depressed...

Brazil Dating Sites

She’s also joined a health club to its very first time in history, also plays tennis at a women’s league. Low selfesteem and inadequate self-image will naturally make you doubt your own worthiness. Named after the famed Buffalo Bill, Cody is where the cowboy and cowgirl culture still thrives. Additionally, resist driving sex and also let physical intimacy happen naturally.

How Alloparents Can Help You Raise a Family

Before I had children, I read With A Daughter’s Eye, Mary Catherine Bateson’s memoir about growing up with famous anthropologist parents, Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson. Mead, the “grandmother of anthropology,” was a pioneer in the study of family life in worldwide cultures, and she used her understanding of varied family patterns to shape her own. “She set out to create a community for me to grow up in,” Bateson writes. “I did not grow up in a nuclear family or as an only child, but as a m...

I flew on Set Jet, where flights on private jets cost the same as typical airlines' first class, and saw why it's one of aviation's best kept secrets

Flying on private jet firm Set Jet. Thomas Pallini/Insider Set Jet is a membership-based private jet firm offering seats on private aircraft on set routes across the American West.

Despite news stories of mass migration during the pandemic, census data show rather typical trendlines.

Bassitt Wins 7th Straight, Olson 2 HRs, A’s Beat Royals 6-3

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland’s slugging Matts have a running joke about how one is usually hot when the other’s not. Lately, both are driving the ball — and they combined for three home runs Sunday.

Weekend Reading 6.12.21

I spent a few hours hiking in Muir Woods on Friday, that was such a cool experience. There’s something about walking dirt paths and being surrounded by 1,000+ year old redwood trees that feels grounding and makes the little things we worry about seem…so little. I recommend the visit if you’re ever in the Bay Area, it’s about 30 minutes north from the Golden Gate Bridge. I bought a few more green plants for my studio (can’t stop, won’t stop) so I needed two new planters and decided to make them. ...

Nearly $1 Billion in Funding Restored for California Bullet Train

Back in 2009, then-governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger requested $4.7 billion in federal stimulus money to help build an 800-mile bullet train system from San Diego to San Francisco. "We're traveling on our trains at the same speed as 100 years ago," the governor said. "That is inexcusable. America must catch up." Nearly 12 years later, "a $929-million federal grant for the California bullet train project was restored Thursday," reports the Los Angeles Times, "reversing a decision by ...

Why LA County’s rebound is a must for California’s economy

California needs its biggest job market to catch up to the rest of the state as it thaws from a coronavirus-chilled economy. Los Angeles County has been a huge drag on the state’s overall recovery that has, by several measures, been well behind the national pace. Consider: L.A.’s unemployment rate was 11% in April compared with 4.7% in February 2020, just before the pandemic hammered life and business. That’s a stomach-churning 6.3 percentage-point increase — even after 2021’s economic uptick. N...
