Re: “Believer in Food as a Catalyst for Change

i started cooking at 7. later on, i lived in a student co-op and we used the small planet cookbooks. after college, i went to france as au au pair. in the late 70s, i could not afford to go in the front door of the gourmet ghetto, so i went in the back door of the inn season, and they let me do a veggie prep internship - very educational.

now, i am looking for the old folks home that cooks only organic from scratch.

Re: “Champion of Richmond Education

i graduated from el cerrito high in 1972. i went back for the farewell open house they had before the demolition and reconstruction.
i talked to the machine shop teacher, and learned they were going to trash all the machines. bad idea.
i wonder what happened to all those wonderful slate blackboards?
later on, i went to the open house for the new building - it was ready for lockdown. disturbing...

Re: “Champion of Richmond Education

I remember Mr. Peritz from the tenth grade, he was an exciting innovator who taught with excitement. He knew how to keep the classroom bourgeoning with energy that kept us wanting to put out more, to learn more.
As a matter of fact, his class was the most energetic (thats not meant negatively)
because he knew how to captivate his audience into learning.
He was the one who introduced us to Shakespeares, Oedipus Rex, Don Quixote, Hamlet.
One thing we knew for sure, his desire was for each of his students to grasp the art of learning.
Thanks Mr. Perizt for the education, you were a great educator.

Re: “Three Oakland Businesses on Creating a New Workplace Culture

remember, whether or not a customer gets flagged as a sexual harasser at this restaurant is largely subjective and depends on how they're perceived by the restaurant staff. a young attractive man will probably be a lot less likely to be flagged than one who is unattractive and old. also totally harmless interactions from a genuinely innocent customer could potentially still be perceived as sexual harassment by the staff, especially considering the prevalence of outrage culture and third wave feminism in society today. This means that men are more likely to be discriminated against at this supposedly all-inclusive restaurant and men who would never dream of sexually harassing anyone could still end up being wrongfully branded as creeps, humiliated and have their reputations soiled. People who are discriminated against at this restaurant as a result of this emotional and illogical policy will receive a lower quality of service and that isn't ok. I don't know why anyone would support a restaurant that actively engages in such discriminatory, emotion-driven practices that aren't rooted in reality. It's one thing to flag a customer who is clearly sexually harassing your staff in violation of existing sexual harassment laws, it's an entirely different story to trust your employee's gut feelings alone and brand anyone they don't like as a creep, whether or not they actually did anything inappropriate.

Re: “Why So Many Bisexual Men are Still in the Closet

Most bi men Ive met and even played with have mostly (95%) been married. In less than 10% of those cases, the wifes knew. How sad. What was even more interesting is that these wives were mostly bi or had experimented with it in the past. Yet, they judged and even questioned their husbands sexuality when he came out and admitted his bi side. The even more interesting part is that almost all of the bi men that have been on my path have all been anti-romantic bi. It was always just physical and sex. Of the 10% where the wives knew about and accepted their husbands bi side, the marriages were quite good and in fact, in 90% of the cases, the wife joined and played too and enjoyed the sexuality that two men brought to the experience in terms of sights, sounds and tastes as well as the fulfillment of enjoying two cocks. The wife could play with women and the husband could play with men. And all would play together. In a couple of cases, the wives wanted nothing to do with the play time that occurred in their beds and elected to let the boys be boys and have their fun. Why? Because she wanted to have her fun with a girlfriend and not have to see her husband play with her girlfriend. Im just an average Joe here. My experiences are based on over 100+ women (purely hetero), 25+ men (purely bi), and 50+ couples (hetero/bi combination). As well, there were also the group experiences. Age groups were 27 to 72. Being bi, couples play was always the best and afforded the best of both worlds since it was the most relaxing and no judging or stereotyping. Marriages are tricky in that the wife wants to know, but seldom does a wife know how to handle the info once garnered. In every case, the woman was or is bi and for some reason it was good for her and not gay, but for her man it was the beginning of a self realization exercise to find the truth about how bi or gay he is. Again, sad. Seen it all. Experienced most, if not all. I doubt it will ever change.

Re: “Best Butcher Shop

If your lucky to be there on the one day a week owner, Jerry Ver Burgge happens to be behind the counter, you're in for a treat. It always put's a smile on your face when he's there. Glad to see the Boss still makes him go to work!

Re: “The Doggie Days of Summer

How could you possibly have missed including Richmond's Point Isabel?!?! It's not only the largest off leash dog park IN THE WORLD, but it's probably the only one with stupendous 3-bridge views. Not to mention a brilliant example of urban green space planning and public/private partnerships that help keep it running. Mud Puppys groomin provides, toys & treats for canines while the Sit N Stay Cafe is a delightful place for a snack whether you bring a dog or not. While I'm at it: East Brother Brewing Company in Richmond welcomes dogs, and Pt. Pinole is another one of Richmond's best kept secrets.

Re: “Best Local Flea Market

Please use caution with knock-off cosmetics. Several reports have come out, including from The Environmental Working Group about dangerous substances being found in some of these cosmetics, including Miranda lead, e-coli and salmonella and others. Most of these are coming out of China.

Re: “Yes, I'm a Dominatrix

The Scene demands that participants educate themselves, especially before engaging a professional, and, are not naive about the nature of most pro-doms. ...highly recommended to avail oneself of educational oportunities at the Citadel in SF, and the many venues to meet people experienced/knowledgable re all aspects of The Scene BEFORE engaging a dom. If one neglects educational opportunites and common sense, a perceived newbie's exploitation is inevitable. E.g, ALWAYS ask for the house rules to be disclosed BEFORE an engagement. Common sense also suggests that one avoid the inarticulate & ill-educated...
