Welcome to my adventure. This blog started out focused on parenting and school but now that Katie's nearly baked, it's way more about me these days. My experiences, more likely my point of view and good times to share.
Welcome! I'm glad to have you aboard.

What if Alex P Keaton Attended a Nonviolence Workshop in Santa Cruz?

Alex and Katie: Separated at Birth?
Now that Katie's home from her last great adventure (and has clearly slept more than any Koala Down Under), it's time for her to re-engage with humanity in a constructive way.

Tomorrow she starts a week of learning about social justice at a student workshop called Exploring Your Social Justice Community. This is sponsored by the Resource Center for Nonviolence in Santa Cruz. It's just the kind of thing you'd expect from Santa Cruz!

If you aren't familiar with us, we'll we're kind of known for our liberal slant especially when it comes to individual freedom. So I'm expecting Katie will get a fairly biased indoctrination this week.

It's True, I Love Stealing Other People's Children


It was so easy.

All I had to do to lure them away was send them a text. And then they were mine!

Much to Katie's chagrin - she really can't complain, she's off storming the South Pacific with People to People - I swiped her friends and took them to a food fest at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Watsonville.

My glorious partners in crime, Emelia and Eva, are Katie's friends and they are wonderful, fun and appreciative. They accompanied me to the event to learn more about the food bank and the local service organizations and foods we have in Santa Cruz County.
