This birb 100% wanted to be my friend and I was ALMOST not afraid to touch him but I chickened out (HAAA) and kept all of my fingers safe. He was lookin at me all cutie pie though. That was probably a trap though...a careful deception... Am I a fool? Not today. Not today. #bird#birb#parrot ? #imscaredofbirds#berkeley#yourbasicbird
We like to personalize the sanitary bags that we hand out to the homeless women by putting in a handwritten card✉. Our hope is that the card makes the women receiving the bag feel seen, human and not alone.🙌

There is so much to love in this picture! One of my new favorite things is upholstering more modern pieces in a classic ticking stripe like this loveseat. Also the art is 👌 and the tables and ottoman are perfectly unexpected. ❤️
Twin brothers Gustavo and Hector have no idea of the twists and turns they will encounter as their lives unfold. From living in an abusive home to being kidnapped and thrown into one hopeless situation to the next, they always have each other and they never give up on their quest to find happiness. For Gustavo, it's in the arms of another man, while Hector finds peace and happiness with a bombshell stripper aptly named Star. As the story unfolds, Gustavo lets the reader into his life a little at a time. He said has guards his thoughts and holds dear to him those he knows love and will never judge him-his brother and his "sister" Angel-a transsexual with a heart big enough to save everyone but herself. This transformation story takes the reader on a trip throught the life of two Mexican-American men who never let go of their childhood dreams even as they live through horrific experiences complete with rape, domestic violence, drug abuse, abandonment, murder and betrayal. Just when it seems that the brothers will finally have their happy endings,tragedy rears its ugly head to again snatch away one brother's chance at true love. The hurt and shame could make many people fall and crumble, but it can also make life that much sweeter for those who champion the obstacles placed before them. From the hoods of gritty Sacramento, California to the slick Atlanta, Georgia streets, Gustavo and Hector stick together in hopes of finding the meaning behind the heartache.
She's talking about the counter protesters at UTR. Now swipe left and see her bio and read. She's in Southern California does a lot of rallies down there. Im sure she makes good money off pushing these narratives trying to infiltrate and confuse. Gaslighting. "What you see and know isn't real. This isn't racist. It can't be. I'm not white. But it's racist to call white people racist. It's racist to call ME racist". Why do you make everything about race. That is actually the theme they are going for atCrisdy Fields. They will come up to whoever looks like an easy target to get upset. They all say the same thing like they are trained. These profiles entertain people online. The entire rally experience is for entertainment. These are the kind of people you will see at Crissy Fields and Berkeley. Super Trump Supporter who never has a problem with anything he does.

And I'll do my best
To make sure you're impressed
While making sure you're no less
Than FULLY blessed
And that's All I have to say
So until then have a great day
I look forward to you coming my way
As I continue to paint...

This ramen is really worth the 40 mins drive from San Jose. The quality is fairly close to the original stores in Japan! (Bottom right was taken at Ippudo in Kyoto for comparison lol) #ippudo#bestramen#berkeley#但是麥茶去哪了

Small batch, handmade, organic crackers made in Berkeley? Yes please!
That’s exactly what Cory (long time employee of Berkeley Natural Grocery) said to Birgitta when she told him about her made-from-scratch crackers crafted from a Swedish friend’s recipe.
Birgitta is a long time (30 + years) shopper at our Berkeley store. For years, she bought the same superfood ingredients from our bulk bins. After chatting and recipe sharing with staff, she brought the team at Berkeley Natural (BNG) samples of her crackers. They were hooked. Birgitta and her partner Dianna credit Cory and the BNG team with inspiring them to start their small business.
The recipe originated with Birgitta’s friend in Sweden whose daughter is a very picky eater. When she finally discovered a winning combination that even her daughter appreciated, she shared it with Birgitta. While Birgitta and Dianna have altered the recipe a bit (most dramatically dropping the olive oil in favor of coconut oil), the Swedish roots are strong.
The flower on the label is a traditional Swedish decoration. Their label and logo designer lives on an island in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland. The heritage (and inspiration) for these crackers points back to the majestic northern lands of the Baltic.
Cracker culture in Sweden is endless, with entire aisles dedicated to the craft. Everybody buys and bakes crackers. People commonly eat crackers with every meal whether paired with pickled herring, caviar, cheese, smoked meat, gravlax or soup.
The key to Birgitta’s leap into full time cracker production happened while selling Swedish ovenware. She was going to product shows and would bring her crackers along for snacks and meals. Everybody wanted the crackers more than the ovenware. With that nudge and the continued encouragement from Cory and the Berkeley Natural Team, Birgitta teamed up with Dianna (who has a culinary degree) to forge what is now Cult Crackers.
