The city wants to move a fire station from Minnesota to our neighborhood. I’m concerned about the noise. There’s a community meeting tomorrow night. We are going.
Should San Jose move Fire Station #6 off of Minnesota/Cherry to Lincoln/Curtner?
Please join the City of San Jose Fire Department for an overview and community discussion regarding a new Fire Station proposed to be located adjacent to the Willows Senior Center.Thursday, March 27, 2008, 6:30 p.m.Willows Senior Center, 2175 Lincoln Ave.
… delivered direct from the coffee roaster, makes not just a good cup of coffee, but a really outstanding cup of coffee.
Would you like to know when it’s ready? I’ll send you an email as they’re being roasted, and you can reply either yes or no. Then 30 minutes later there will be a one pound bag at your door, still warm! You’ll have to let them cool off first, then you can spoil your taste buds forever.
Notice: The above is only conjecture. Sorry.
You can look into your neighbors backyards from Google Earth. It’s not easy to see all the clotheslines, however. Actually, mine might be the only one. Never had a clothes dryer. What for? There’s always time to let the rainy days pass.

Shouldn’t we have these every Spring? (Clean out the garage, make room for more junk!)
The nearby grocery store displays a handful of whole trout on an unpredictable timetable. Because sometimes these Oncorhynchus lie there too long without selling, the grocery store has considering dropping the offering completely.
The problem is that the customers, who are willing to buy it fresh whenever it appears, don’t know exactly when that time is.
How about if one of us, on discovering the new supply, lets the rest of us know?
Yesterday, while riding my bicycle on the street, I was distracted by a kid with a leaf blower. He had it aimed at me, so I was about to move into the middle of the street when a speeding car passed close by me. Usually, I would have heard the car coming up behind me, but, as you know, leaf blowers are deafening. I could have gotten run over!
Leaf blowing is ubiquitous in most communities, and many have banned the use of them.
Spend an afternoon riding around on your bicycle and just see if you don’t get dirt blown into your face. The noise is penetrating, too. If you worked at home, like many people now do, you’d get the noise and dust from all directions, not only from yards on either side but from across the street and sometimes from blocks away. These are not the neighbors per se using these machines, but young boys employed by yard services.
What would I have to do to get the City to consider banning the use of leaf blowers?
P.S. The infernal racket is outside my window as I write this. I’ll stop what I’m doing to shut all the windows, but I don’t think it’s my job to personally confront all of the noise and pollution offenders.
