~ Michelle Dragony

This is a short speech I gave recently at my Toast Masters in Foster City. The Best Toast Masters in the world, we meet every Thursday at Mimi's

Cafe in Foster City at 7:30 am. I know what you’re thinking, waaaayyy too early! It’s definitely worth it, if your not laughing you’re crying. You learn something new every time and you’re left with a valuable skill: how to publicly speak.

Let's Talk About Housing Presentation
PRESENTATION. City of HMB is deciding how to spend $2.1 million in housing funds. Many people were surprised at the statistics of the SMCo Home For All survey presentation, held earlier in August.

Save the Tick, Test the Tick
ARTICLE / VIDEO. Ticks are Here on the San Mateo County Coast.  And so is lyme disease (see Robert Buelteman’s video below). San Mateo County reports a low lyme disease case count. But many on the coast have gone through horrifying experiences with undiagnosed lyme disease. I had a friend from Hawaii go to Seton Coastside with a tick hanging on. The doctor removed the tick and threw it out. The low count may be due to the fact that testing is not being done systematically by doctors in San Mateo County.

Bedtime Stories ~
Harold & the Purple Crayon

Create the world you want to see and be the person you would want to be friends with.”  ~ Patty Sherin of Mosaics and Brickz ~ LEGO Ninja Extrordinaire.

Artist and native New Yorker, Patty Sherin has had a passion for colors, patterns and the creativity that comes with using your hands to create beautiful, engaging pieces people of all ages can enjoy.
