Rape and Sex Offenses
The other two rape cases involved 15 year olds and 9 year olds. It took the Wicomico County Sheriff's office a month to arrest the 15 year old. The 9 year old however has gone 6 months before he was arrested and was allowed to turn himself in. What is wrong with the Seaford Police Department on that one?

Blogs that make you feel guilty
9am grapefruit, coffee (with stevia and chocolate soymilk)
10:30 slice of rye bread toast with margarine and vegan parmesan (nutritional yeast blended with soaked almonds and sea salt)
1pm: yummy lunch: Portobello mushroom marinated in roasted garlic and balsamic vinegar, roasted and topped with a bit of ketchup, lettuce and tomato. Salad with lettuce, cherry tomato, broccoli, cauliflower, sprouted sunflower seeds and lemon juice.,
40min walk in the woods
3pm apple slices some with almond butter some with PB, and hemp seeds, glass of chocolate soymilk
7pm: This is the best Quinoa I have ever made. I cooked the quinoa in leftover seitan simmering broth (veggie broth, teriyaki sauce, onion flakes, peppercorns and bay leaf) topped with sautéed veggies (olive oil, onion, garlic, broccoli, red bell pepper, mushrooms, carrots, herbamare seasoning and pepper, fresh basil); 1 small baked sweet potato
Dessert: cappuccino cup with carob fudge sauce
Quinoa is a complete protein and loaded with magnesium here is an interesting fact World’s Healthiest Foods website, “Most commonly considered a grain, quinoa is actually a relative of leafy green vegetables like spinach and Swiss chard.” To read more about this “grain” click on the title above.
A sampling from "Transitioning to Raw Food":
I made it to bed before 9:30 last night. Twinkle woke me up rousting about at 5 something so I hollered at her and went back to sleep. I got up who knows when but it was in time to get ready for Sabbath School and church.
The weather had other ideas. When I looked outside it seemed okay but as soon as I put my foot on the step, I knew it wasn't. It was a solid sheet of ice. Not the kind you can walk on. I waited until a more reasonable hour and called one of the other organists. She wasn't sure she was going to be at church, either, so I called the pastor. He said for me to stay safe and make the best decision so I elected to stay at home.
Breakfast was OJ and some pineapple and then a banana/blueberry/spinach smoothie. Later on, I had a pear and after that, it was an organic orange the size of a small grapefruit.
I got out my spiral slicer and made some turnip "pasta". I have it soaking in lemon water even as I write. I need to have another fruit meal before I have my veggie meal so I'm going to fix a banana/kale smoothie. I may have some tomatoes, too.
I'll be checking back in later. This isn't it for the day yet.
Well that should make everyone else guilty too.

Delmar Manor Curbing
The handicap curbing/sidewalk is on Jones Terrace. Jones Terrace is the street where the Mayor lives and has recently been repaved. The street has no sidewalks, nor do any of the streets in Delmar Manor have sidewalks. So why would you have a handicap corner sidewalk that does not connect to any other sidewalk? I can't imagine a person in a wheelchair rolling across some one's yard so they can come off the handicap corner into the street. They usually roll down the street if there is no sidewalks. More taxpayer money spent oddly.
This brings to my mind the whole issue of sidewalks in Delmar. The "old" section of Delmar for the most part have sidewalks yet in the annexed areas, as Delmar manor, they have no sidewalks. There should be a requirement that all streets have sidewalks. It would be discrimintory if it is any other way. The residents in the 'Old" section of Delmar had to pay for sidewalks, so why shouldn't all the new housing developments be required to have sidewalks.
Delmar Manor was an interesting annexation. It was a housing development built as I recall in the 1950's. It was annexed into town at that time. The Mayor and Council and the builder of Delmar Manor had a disagreement. The Mayor told them Delmar manor would not be considered part of Delmar. For a 20 to 30 year period Delmar Manor houses were never taxed as being part of Delmar. This continued until the 1980's when there was another offical annexation of Delmar Manor into Delmar.
