    Flintstone House on the market

    Several local news stations asked the neighbors if they had a problem with the new "lawn ornaments" and not one had a problem with it. In California most cities have complaint driven code enforcement and Hillsborough is not different, so all it takes is one complaint.

    Addiction is not a funy at all

    You're one of the one's who got better! With deafness most go through the five stages of grief, but most eventually get to acceptance. Depression like addiction is a disease. Some go into remission and they get better, some relapse and some don't make it.
