Friends of the Michael White Adobe

Well, Folks, I just want to take a few moments to thank all of you who pitched in to help save the Miguel Blanco Adobe.  At least, for now, it isn't going under the 'dozer.  I had a meeting with San Marino's beloved (13 years) ex-mayor, Eugene Dryden a couple days ago.  He's a great guy who's committed to the cause and is someone who makes things happen. Tonight I attended a meeting of the "Friends of the Michael White Adobe" committee to figure out how to proceed.  We talked about motivating students to participate in the process. This is a favorite cause of mine because I figure if you can get kids interested in the textbook known as the past, y'all can keep 'em interested in making the future a place we might all wanna live in.  This idea was brought to the table by Dr. Gary Woods, Superintendant of San Marino City School District.  A big shout out for that.  Any guy who has a nine foot bear in his office is okay by me.  No, he didn't shoot it, he received it as a gift and spruced it up so kids could see how big a grizzly really is.  More on that later.  Dr. Woods thinks 'kid's first' and 'How can the kids use this to learn?' with everything he comes in contact with and that, folks, is a good thing.  In fact everyone (almost) that I've had a chance to palaver with from San Marino seems to be very pro-active where it comes to educating and enriching the experiences of the kids.  Awesome!  Now I know that getting the adobe polished up is gonna take time and, well, money.  Here's the deal, soon, there's gonna be a way that anyone that wants to put up a couple bucks to help save a California landmark and teach kids a little bit more about our rich California history at the same time, can do so.  I'll keep you posted.  Also, you may have noticed that there is a counter we put in to find out how many people are checkin' up on me. . .  Believe me, the more the merrier.  Anyhow, Thanks so much for your support.  Video is coming.  C  U  soon.   Jake
