Yes, you are correct if you said and spelled his name correctly: Oros Vasile and his lovely wife.
Oros resurrected the only remaining hardware/general store in the so-called well-managed City of Menlo Park. Smenlo Park is now showing growing pains not yet seen since the sale of Sun Microsystems land, along an “(un) protected” estuary, to Facebook Corporation.
Yes, Oros Vasile is now the owner of Ace Hardware along once-thriving Santa Cruz Avenue. He now manages a half-block of retail zoned properties on the north side of the boulevard.
I became a “Trumper” (supporter of the man who is President) after spending two weeks with a close friend in Western Colorado. My friend’s reasoning seemed real, convincing, and relevant to me and our country.
Summer of 2019
The Robert Mueller investigation concluded. The President released an all not true redacted version. The claims of Obstruction of Justice and Abuse of the Constitutional Executive Branch powers were true and undeniable.
My opinion of the President dropped less than 20 percent.
Although I respect the Office of the President, I could no longer support his poor behavior. It seemed that the Oval Office was being run by a cartel gang or mafia.
I came to the conclusion if I did nothing, I would be as guilty as President Trump, his Chiefs of Staff, and all the President’s Men.
As a journalist, I cannot remain quiet.
Smear campaigns are unethical.
Denying climate change concerns, lying to the press almost every day, treating people like poop, and discrediting scientific studies are also unethical.
What has been done out of the White House since 2017 is not only impeachable but cause to get Trump out of the Oval Office, asap.
Pope Francis stated that the president is not a Christian. To me, that assessment means more to me than my best friend in Colorado.
If you have comments, even if you are a “Never Trumper” or staunch Republican willing to support evil felons, I wish you would respond to this essay.

This week, the market has been demonstrating “corrections.” It is time to implement ideas from Shark Tank’s Mister Wonderful Dennis O’Leary.
“Never cry when the market goes down, because it’s not crying for you,” he says. “You should never get emotional about the stock market.”
Here are O’Leary’s top three tips to survive the market’s ups and downs:
- Don’t panic
“The truth about markets is that they never go straight up,” O’Leary tells CNBC.
For the last few years, the market has been less volatile, he says, so young people “are not used to major corrections, and so now we’re starting to get them,” he says. “These are normal phenomena.”
You have to think long term.
“You’ll see the markets go up and down,” says O’Leary, “but over a long period of time — and this has been consistent since the beginning of stocks in America — they grow over time because the companies and the economy grows over time.” The S&P 500 index, for example, has earned an annual average return of 9.8 percent over the past 90 years.
“You want a piece of that for your future.”
- Buy for value
If you “buy companies that are profitable and that have good balance sheets that pay
dividends,” says O’Leary, “you can sustain yourself through these massive corrections.”
You can still do this, he says, “even if you only have $50 to invest or $100.”
O’Leary, who owns O’Shares ETFs, recommends exchange traded funds because they are inexpensive and tax efficient. These ETFs are buckets of securities that track an index.
Similarly, other experts, including O’Leary’s fellow Shark Mark Cuban and investor Warren Buffett, recommend index funds, which you can think of as low-risk, low-cost baskets of stocks.
You may also consider using an app that allows you to buy fractional shares, says O’Leary. His app, Beanstox, and others like Stockpile do this.
“You shouldn’t have all of your money invested in stocks — that’s too risky,” says O’Leary. “You also need some fixed-income like bonds.”
And “Keep some cash around,” he says. “You feel much better if you have cash, even though your portfolio may be [temporarily] down 20 percent.”
“Diversification is the only free lunch,” adds O’Leary.
May Day 2018
No not for this author but for my ex- and only wif during my 64+ years.
The irony is I thought that Beatles song would mirror my own life (you know, … Vera, Chuck, and Dave) when I attained this age of mine despite using all kinds of recreational drugs (no H or smack) during my ‘formative years’ – when coincidently I met my wif during college days in the Big Ten Conference – and engaging for pay in some dangerous and unsafe activities (fyi, I became a safety engineer in 1979 – when coincidently I married my wife near Lake Michigan – we did not have issues until we arrived in the ‘land of milk and honey’ Northern California).
You would think I’d be mildly upset that my college honey decided to remarry an atheist, who lived next door between 1995 and 2007 – when coincidently I moved to Sonoma County wine country, alone.
Naw she could not understand how elated I was that she would be able to retire next week and not have to work in a preschool daycare center until she aged to 80 or so. My vows specifically stated ‘until death do y’all part’ and I had still felt responsibility for her health insurance premiums, mortgage payments, property taxes, raising our daughter, and the re-sale value on a $2 to $3,000,000.00 house in beautiful County of San Mateo.
Fortunately, the divorce proceedings she handled her self and but I hired a lawyer only to be shafted after we’d been separated for a year or so.
What I thought was my second love of my life, was lost because Susan was so honorable that we refrained from ‘hanky panky’ until my first divorce was finalized. The time was not right for us and I suffered a broken heart.
Today, I am thinking that I would not have incurred a broken heart if my ex-wif did not drag her feet meddling with the legal paperwork and dirty-dealing with my lawyer and the divorce court judge in his chambers, no less. Dear Susan and I could not wait… I recall breaking up on the Fourth of July, no less.
Like a cat falling, I always have tried to land on my feet after losing a relationship or changing jobs.
Death is a subject which I have researched. Taking a lesson from Kubler-Ross, I should be angry, then go through denial, and now begin to cry. So I am trying to cry today so my subconscious can, as my Mom would say, “David, get over it.”
I should just write it off that my ex-wif decided on “a marriage of convenience.”
Excuse me, I am going to take a nap.

Just a Thought: A Reflection on Republican History – Avoiding a Constitutional Crisis, Preserving the Republic, and Fostering World Peace
Could the Republican Party do the U.S. and the world a favor?
May we take a lesson from history?
It was done during the 1970’s.
In the name of the party of Abraham Lincoln and by the grace of God, can it happen again?
(1) The Speaker of the House of Representatives changed prior to the mid-term election of 1974, with a presidential election looming in 1976.
(2) The dishonorable Vice President (Spiro Agnew / like Mike Pence) was replaced.
(3) The sitting President (RMN) resigned with some dignity and many accomplishments.
(4) The Vice President (Gerald Ford) seamlessly assumed the Presidency.
(5) A respectable Vice President (former New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller) was selected.
(6) The U. S. House of Representatives democratically elected a new Speaker of the House (who follows the VP as next in-line to succeed the President of the United States of America (POTUS)).
Given the Trade War, military conflicts, resignation of today’s Speaker, and recent alliance of Russia – China – Syria, perhaps Americans should pursue the best options.
So help US God.

St. Dan Louis’ Web-Blog from Estella Vista, West Texas (written by St. Danny in 2009) fyi: DLD passed away on 11-22-2016
My older brother had a thing about numerology, anniversaries (Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, etc.), justice particularly for minors with a real rough childhood, and establishing a safe haven for those that could benefit from “getting away from it (rat races) all” where the southwest Texas desert air and mountains offer a respite that will last an improved lifetime.
If you have never red any of his writings, now is the time to also pray that Dan L. has no more time to spend in purgatory, which he believed was only a Catholic myth. Enjoy his style and messages often hidden within the paragraphs and diagrams:

Reno BigHorns Twelve has an Even Chance to Make a Run for an Upset
Reno, Nevada (Saturday Evening – February 28, 2015) – Reno BigHorns (affiliate farm team of the NBA Kings] Denied Win and Huge Upset at Home in their ReeNo Events Center! – Was it the Sacramento Kings management that “threw in the towel” at halftime with the scoreboard reading 54-38 in favor of the visiting twelve from Oklahoma City.
or alternate headline about alleged credentials to be a local fan . . .
Reno, Nevada (February 28, 2015) — Perhaps the Security Czar had money riding on the favored Oklahoma City Thunder Blues, or else he has a chip on his shoulder, may have needs to demonstrate his mettle and power to the club front office, the Sacramento Kings organization, likes to push around self-employed sports writers with disabilities, and want to prove to the youth in attendance (less than 5,000 paid) what a big-man think he is!?!
Whatever the reasons or excuses, the desired fan base in Reno is dwindling despite the recent hiring of future Hall of Fame Coach George Karl.
