Helvetica "Foofers" Bold


Seeking referral for a family law attorney

So I have bookmarks for several Fremont-area firms specializing in family law. My needs aren’t complex or anything, but I’d be more comfortable going on someone’s recommendation than just calling a firm at random. Hoping maybe someone here has had similar needs, or knows a colleague or family member familiar with this stuff.

Elaborating on my specific needs…Collapse )

Any teenagers or anyone else desperate for a car?

We have a functional 1997 Mazda Protégé in the the garage, which we need to be rid of rather soon.

The good:

  • Runs perfectly well and will start, stop, and go on command.
  • Engine and brakes and transaxle check out well.
  • Has been well-maintained for its whole life.
  • Suspension is healthy relatively quiet and it's a smooth ride
  • Tires in good condition.
  • Fuel economy on par with a small car of that sort. I could tease 25-30 MPG out of it.
  • Interior creature comforts like power windows and locks, seat adjustments and the like are all working well.

The bad:

  • The air conditioner has gone entirely dead, due to a seized compressor.
  • The seized compressor then destroyed the belt which also fed the power steering.
  • There is therefore no power steering. This isn't catastrophic but it's darned inconvenient.

The ugly:

  • Some slightly damaged, faded, and repainted fascia on the bumpers, and a missing control cover here and there.

Future fixes:

  • If you're desperate for AC, it will at the very least be a new compressor. These are pricy as heck at the retail level, but I didn't look into them on the used market.
  • If you're not, then getting a belt from the central pulley over to the power steering pump appears to be a trivial matter. Power steering should be recoverable for <$200.
  • It's been sitting in the garage for weeks and appears to have no leaks to the ground.

    We'll take any sane offer that beats the benefits of donating it and taking a tax deduction.

Best Sushi Ever

Sushi Yoshi, if you aren't aware, is the best sushi place in the East Bay.  Yoshi makes an incredible array of piscean awesomeness on and off rice.

I'm posting this as a public service announcement.  Don't let yet another great restaurant die in Fremont, only to be replaced with yet another boring chain eatery.  Yoshi's got some great food, and will treat you like a friend.  Ever since Nummi closed, he hasn't seen as much business as before, and I'd hate to see this wonderful place be closed down for lack of business.

It's behind Newpark Mall in the same shopping center as the Lion Market. . .just on the opposite side and tucked in a corner near the hobby shop.

If sushi isn't your thing, he's got the best Japanese food this side of Tokyo, including CURRY!

Go there.  You won't be disappointed.

Hello everyone! I'm starting college in the fall. I'm looking for LOCAL scholarships to apply to.

I've been able to find a lot of national scholarships with scholarship search websites, but I'm betting there are a lot of local scholarships that don't get publicized all that much.

If you know of any good scholarships (from your credit unions, area of worship, company, non-profit foundation, etc. etc.), please share!

If I want a thrift store in the east bay with basic jeans and other pants that *fit*, with a good selection in the 16-18 size range for women, where should I look? One of the biggest issues is that my rheumatoid arthritis is flaring, so I can't just run from store to store and wander aisles, I need to be able to go to a rack and try on at least a couple of pairs, if possible.
