The advantage of having my own blog is that I can write about whatever pleases me.
Two things have pleased me in the last few weeks:
1) The Reptile Room on “A” Street. Last month I spent some time with my friend’s 8-year old and was delighted to bring her to this wonder in downtown Hayward. They have all kinds of exotic little creatures! (Amazing…and also cheap entertainment if you need something to do one afternoon!)
2) Mom’s cooking!
One bit of irony I’ve faced while serving on the Hayward City Council is the fact that we have:
1) a Climate Action Plan
2) a Green Building Ordinance
…yet City of Hayward employees are still manually writing their time on timesheets!
Though I’ve protested often about such nonsense, imagine my surprise when last week a City of Hayward committee considered an ordinance that could require energy efficiency audits and retrofits when a home is sold!
Are we out of our minds? As if local real estate isn’t already suffering from too much regulation…
