The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here March 26th.

 

 

This is the fifth video which I guess is becoming a series about how politicians are destroying our beautiful country..

 

In past blogs I’ve centered on California, but I stumbled across this one just yesterday and it was dated March 14, 2019. When main stream media elects to identify this kind of a situation It must really be bad. KOMO is a long-time TV station in Seattle…

 

Watch for yourself and draw your own conclusions. If you cannot spare a whole hour, after the first few minutes you will get the drift. Early in this video it is identified that second only to San Francisco, Seattle leads the nation in crime.

 

Someone once said… “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Today’s politicians either do not get it or just do not care. You choose. If political outlooks remain the same as the last few years… things will only get worse as the United States continues on it’s downhill journey…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you agree with this message, I encourage you to share it with your friends.

 

Despite the disparaging message…

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the video.

Forecast for today is sunny and 73 degrees.

 

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

ALAMEDA COUNTY SHERIFF’S ARCHIVE

From Mary’s desk:

The Alameda County Sheriffs Archive is run by volunteers. Last Tuesday, we had Vic Agapalo, an expert on Police Olympics, Donna Boyer, who knows EVERYONE in the department and can identify people in pictures for us. Al Ianarelli, a published writer, who organizes career books for us, Jim Knudsen, also a master book maker and historian, Gary Lindsey jails expert and archive coordinator, and myself. A talented crew. In our workroom above, we have the old neon sign that once hung at Eden Township Substation in Hayward that Bud Harlan, who was absent Tuesday, had refurbished for us.

Donna was NOT identifying the above gents who were once incarcerated at San Quentin. In the 1920’s and 1930’s most men wore hats. Thus someone decided that every man should have his mug shot taken wearing a hat. Those that didn’t have a hat were given one, whether it fit properly or not. His crime and sentence were handwritten on the front of his picture.

While crime was mostly the enterprise of men, a few women were active such as this fancy dame whose specialty was GUN MOLL.

And this SHORT CHANGE ARTIST.
In the books, an occasional woman was arrested mostly for killing her husband (who probably mistreated her) or for prostitution, which was one of the only jobs open to her that paid decent money. The jail history reflected society then,  just as it does today.Its an interesting place.

Working Deputy, Bill Rhodes, stopped by to make sure we all knew about the ACSO/DSA 2010 Reunion he has planned for many months to be held at he Nugget Hotel/Casino in Sparks, Nevada Friday Oct. 8th through Sunday, Oct. 10. Many pictures and artifacts from the archive will be on display at this event. Reservations can be made online at http://www.acsodsa.org and clicking on the Nugget Hotel Casino link.
