Something tells me folks wouldn't be lining up to be your neighbors, Holly.
I find this a much more attractive design than are found in many local tract homes. Lots of light, a clean bright design, and I'm guessing MUCH less construction noise than would come with a built-on-site house.

Dustin Hoffman did a lot of his character research at Devereaux. I've heard some good stories about that.

Botany, you claimed earlier that public sector employees were paid more. Your own chosen source shows this to be false for most categories. Sorry.

Um, Botany? That higher "compensation" includes the benefits. The wages are clearly NOT higher for those with a college degree.

Botany, private sector salaries are still higher than public sector salaries.
If you have sources that suggest otherwise, can you provide them?

Strong schools, especially the University of California, are what made this state a hub of innovation. Prop 30 supports the UC and State Universities and community colleges, and will cost you ONE QUARTER for every hundred dollars you spend (unless your household makes over $350,000 a year, then you'll have some additional tax). ALMOST NOTHING.
This is a TINY increase, with an ENORMOUS downside if it fails. If Prop 30 is not passed, UC alone will lose over $350 million in funding, and this is after facing deep cuts for years. The UC is already pared to the bone, with students facing huge tuition increases. Our schools are what made our state great, and over and over education has been shown to be the best investment we can make in terms of keeping crime rates down and the quality of life up.
Prop 30 is a foolish place to decide to "send a message to the union." A no vote will hurt us all, especially in a city with a UC, a community college, and lots of families. Your neighbors are teachers, school staff, and tuition-paying parents and students. If Prop 30 fails, it's a very bad day for the future of Santa Barbara.

The food is merely good. Meh. The beer selection is FANTASTIC, but the servers, while kind, clearly don't know beer.It's also a major problem that you are not informed how much beer you'll be getting. A $7 beer may be a pint, a half-pint, a snifter...or it may be a lot bigger and cost a lot more. I've gotten beers from 4 oz to 22 oz there, and it was a surprise every time. Just this weekend, my husband and I sat on the patio and ordered the "special bottle" the waitress described and were surprised when two large bombers were delivered. We would have chosen to share one had we known the serving size. Maybe it was explained on the chalkboard inside, but we were on the patio. Phoo.Many pubs that offer specialty beers vary the serving size--that is not uncommon, HOWEVER, they make it clear in advance what you will be getting, rather than explaining after the fact that the pint of the night isn't actually a pint.Inform your staff, inform your customers. And stop putting cheese on tempura. That's just bad.
