I've never served on a jury but someday I hope to. I may have more of an appreciation for how it all goes down but for now I just don't get it. Both Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson seemed so clearly guilty.
The Oakland fire department just received their new contract. It's kinda shitty the percentage of paycut these guys and girls are going to be taking. They put themselves in such great danger, I just don't think that fire, police, military, or teachers should ever get pay cuts. It's offensive, in fact. It's kinda shitty for their families, too. I realized today that it's kinda shitty for Starbucks as well because OFD's paycut means less business for them from me which means they, too, will be receiving the equivalent percentage less than they were. See? Shitty all. the. way. around.
We had such an awesome 4th of July party, our annual block party with a band and great friends. I'll blog more of that when I get a chance but for now I'd like to say THANK YOU to all who came, all who brought such fabulous food to share, and for loving our kids and our family as if we were part of your own. LOVE our friends.
