My mother of blessed memory left 10 years ago. She had a mortgage loan with RBC Mortgage or some such. They had purchased the loan from Aames Home Loan when they went under.

You can file a Small Claims case online in California Superior Court. You can file for personal injury to get restitution. You know who filed this morning? For the first time since 2008, I slept 6 hours last night because I finally got physical proof that the gang members have been blocking my driveway. Finally got a police report.

It took 17 years to get a correct diagnosis of a family member who was taken to psychologists from childhood. Now that health insurance for poor […]
Elliot Rodger, the young man who shot and killed several people in Isla Vista CA was reported by the news media to have had Asperger’s syndrome (AS). AS is then linked to mental illness because of the irrational acts of Rodger. This is a misapplied link because AS is not a mental illness. It is a neurological difference that affects behavior at different levels of severity. It is not a […]
Every day of last week, I called my health care insurer for assistance and information about obtaining a diagnosis for, what I suspect is, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD; Difference; wow.cad.go/nodded/autism/index.tm).
