Rambling on a Thursday.

Here I am again!

I got a little behind on the blog - seems like life's river was moving too fast and I just got swept up in the current. Thankfully I didn't drown, but there was some flailing about. But I am back.

The way I post is being slightly changed - I realize I only have time to just spit out thoughts, quick, real, honest, and unkempt. Are you ready?

I have been sicker than a dog for two months. Sick with a cold, sinus infection, chest crap, and probably most annoying, nausea.

Found out in February that I am pregnant.

Thankfully only one baby.

That one baby is reeking havoc on my tummy.

Joshua has been transplanted. February 22 he received new lungs.

Joshua is still in Stanford, healing the best he can.

The Manteca Bulletin

The Manteca Bulletin has dedicated a lot of coverage lately to the gang shootings and issues we have been having here and in Lathrop. Over the weekend they reported the we intend to shift additional personnel out of investigative units and other special assignments to patrol to boost our response to the gang violence. I am not sure where they got that idea but it is not correct. We are at bare bones in all of these units and cannot afford to shift any additional personnel to patrol short of a significant emergency. This does not mean that we don't need to step up pressure on the gangs. Patrol, Detectives, and Street Crimes have all been doing a good job addressing gang crime are being as proactive as possible. But, we do need to get a handle on the problem before the hot weather gets here and school lets out for summer or we can expect even more violence.

CITRUS! SOME FOR YOU, SOME TO SHARE.

It is citrus season, and I am so excited because my little one year old Meyer lemon tree has four lemons on it!  They will be ready to pick soon.  Our 40-year old orange tree is full and ready to harvest.

San Joaquin County Police Agencies Look to Combat Auto Theft

San Joaquin County Police Agencies Look to Combat Auto Theft

Tracy, Calif. - The Tracy Police Department in collaboration with the Delta Regional Auto Theft Team is hoping to raise awareness and prevent auto theft throughout the City by offering steering wheel locking devices free of charge to city residents on a first-come basis. This is due to a recent increase in auto thefts within the City of Tracy.

In addition to the ongoing suppression efforts, such as arresting thieves, recovering stolen vehicles, and prosecuting auto theft offenders, local police agencies will focus on prevention efforts by giving away free anti-theft steering wheel locking devices to owners of the top nine most stolen cars in San Joaquin County.

Investigators have identified the top nine most stolen vehicles in San Joaquin County as:
1. 1989 to 1997 Honda Accord
2. 1988 to 2000 Honda Civic
3. 1987 to 1996 Toyota Camry
4. 1990 to 1998 Acura Integra
5. 1993 to 1998 Saturn SL
6. 1992 to 1994 Nissan Sentra
