Is your friend feeling bad about not having a degree, or just wants to feel like they are becoming better educated? She/he can get an associates if they want to have a degree of some kind. 4 years full time is a long time at 50, part time can go much longer. I would say don't even worry about it except I had a 60 something guy in one of my classes in college, he had to drop out and go fight in WW2 and finally decided to come back and finish, so who knows.

As noted, steel allows for longer spans that wood frame. But you have to cover the steel (if only because it melts). So, its usually more stylistic to use a laminated wood beam that looks cool and be left exposed. So, my armchair guess is that they are spending money, but have little class. [ Reply | More ]

I'm in the Bay Area and sanders is more popular than Hillary just about everywhere except Silicon Valley where she does most of her private fundraising. Sanders isn't canvassing for as much support in that region compared to the rest of the Bay Area. He is definely more popular in sf, east bay, marin etc. I think only finance people and tech lords like Hillary because she has their back behind closed doors. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. California does have many Hippie types who relate more to Bernie than Hillary. It's more casual here...plus not a huge African American population, but we do have tons of illegals and Hispanics. I think the Hispanic vote will be divided between trump and Hillary. Many Hispanics here have their own small businesses, are legal, and tax,payers. They will vote for trump. The welfare recipients and illegals will vote for Hillary. Not sure about Bernie with that crowd. Asians will vote trump. Whites will be split between all 3. [ Reply | More ]

Two of the four most recent polls have Sanders within 2 points of Clinton. To see trajectory, you follow the same pollster over time. The last PPIC poll (in March) had Clinton up by 7. Today's PPIC poll has Clinton up by 2 points (within the margin of error). See what the next Field poll says. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/ca/california_democratic_presidential_primary-5321.html#polls [ Reply | More ]

I can guarantee you this doesn't happen in the suburbs. For one thing, people don't presume that kids are in private, it's the exception, not the norm. Second, most public schools have names you wouldn't recognize anyway. "She goes to Gardner Elementary" means absolutely nothing and could be in any random town. I have almost no idea what the names of the elementary schools are even in the towns that border mine. It's just not something that comes up with most people you meet cold. On the other hand, if you meet a fellow parent through private, they're generally interested in what privates you have chosen for your other children. In our case we have a very good boys private school in the area, with no equivalent for the girls. People always want to know where you are sending your daughters and if you've found something you like. [ Reply | More ]
