Today, we came home to find a vendor of Happy Valley blocking our driveway. 100 feet of roadway in front of their own facility was free (as well an an open space in the driveway) and they decide to (1) park in front of a neighbor's house and (2) block... Continue reading

Not only do the vans honk to get the attention of the house-staff, they also honk at other vans. https://video.nest.com/clip/631eba7db5dd4029bfd5b62c13dc872b.mp4 Continue reading

This time it was an employee who pulled up to the house a 8AM and instead of getting out of the car thought honking would be a good idea to get the attention of the staff inside. https://video.nest.com/clip/b5ec298a354546af982b1f625f6046c1.mp4 Continue reading

The interesting thing here is how hard it was to track down the van company's information.. go on: try it (Keolis Martinez CA) https://video.nest.com/clip/91c366ec6654416f952058fcbb361c15.mp4 Continue reading

Today, while about to leave, a van blocked my car. I leaned out to ask them not to block traffic (and me) — instead, they pulled 10 feet forward blocking traffic and endangering clients/patients and neighbors alike. I hung back to see how it would all unfold. Fortunately, too, a... Continue reading

Happy Valley ICF generates a lot of garbage in the form of soiled adult diapers and other health-type-waste. Far too often, they let their cans overflow — leaving bags of urine and feces to swelter in the sun. This is not only gross, it's unsanitary and a health hazard. For... Continue reading

Instead of pulling up 20 feet to the curb, the drivers generally block a lane of traffic endangering clients/patients and neighbors alike. (This is also the same honking van from the day before) https://video.nest.com/clip/11a71182cb6b4f70bb43c326ede4d44a.mp4 Continue reading

Not uncommon... A van pulls up and honks I ask "Please don't honk — it's disruptive and it's actually against the law" The driver gets rude ... Today was no different. https://video.nest.com/clip/dfc5c8fc0cb74aa79187aacfddf8f363.mp4 Continue reading

Jesus! This is a van full of clients/patients on a pick-up run. Also note: The van is unlabelled and the only markings save the license place is a tiny sticker below the back window that is impossible to make out... it might be a "How's my driving?" sticker, but it's... Continue reading

Happy Valley ICF is a business operating in a residential neighborhood. They have three shifts of employees per day (2 per shift — each in a vehicle) and 6 vans doing a pick-up and a drop-off per day (12 visits)... plus ancillary staff from the state, etc. ... And they... Continue reading

Today, the city-funded pickup van (County Connection) performed an awkward multi-point turn and proceeded to back up 1000 feet (from 4166 to 4106) down Phoenix St. ... a stupid and dangerous maneuver that put the clients/patients in the van — as well as neighbors — at risk. https://video.nest.com/clip/bb92313209104d6fb466cc0ee4887380.mp4 https://video.nest.com/clip/9bafcdd326c1465eaadc38f3e8c22f9a.mp4 (listen...

Today, Happy Valley decided to have their vendors use my property as a drop-off point. https://video.nest.com/clip/d04eac5fcf0946448e053be53be3c5eb.mp4 [Realistically, yes, it was a mistake, but (1) it came with no apology or acknowledgement of wrongdoing, (2) the owners of Happy Valley ICF are profiting from running a car facility that drops off...

On a stormy June night in 1983, the world got to know U2 in a way that no one could have planned. “Had it been another 78 degree day, it would have been just another concert. Instead it was an amazing concert” (– Barry Fey). [U2's "New Year's Day" recorded... Continue reading

When you’re looking for a soul — or crafting the mission statement — of a brand, keep a few things top of mind: there are things that you can’t say — and there are some things that are simply expected. My old creative director Paul Bennett used to say: “You... Continue reading

I was reading a review of the upcoming movie “It” (Stephen King) which contained the following line: Muschietti (the film’s director) understands the Spielberg-ian rule that creating a recognizable and convincing backdrop makes the payoff moments of coulrophobic terror and supernatural awe feel tangible and believable. — Peter Hartlaub It’s...

Terry contacted me in the hopes to bring some life back to — and fix a botched repair — on one of her dining chairs. [After... not a bad "refresh"] We had exchanged photos of it previously and I had assumed it was a just a shock-mount-replacement. When we got... Continue reading
