2018 Meadview Octoberfest pictures

Once again, the Meadview Octoberfest ended at 2 pm.    NO typo — I mean it, it ended at 2 in the afternoon.

So SAD.

Why does EVERYTHING have to revolve around money and power?

The only purpose of this ULTRA LAME Octoberfest was for the crafters to sell their stuff.  And they did great!  But that doesn’t do a thing for our COMMUNITY.

I didn’t see a single person from my neighborhood as apparently everybody felt that it wasn’t worth the gas.

  • Why can’t we have a REAL Octoberfest?
  • Why can’t we have just ONE annual event that kicks ass?
  • Why didn’t the Crows Nest participate?

As typical “conservatives”, our business owners don’t work TOGETHER.  It’s all about who is going to own Meadview.

SHAME ON YOU!

I don’t care if the crafters go home at two. I would have loved to take a friend on this beautiful afternoon to enjoy a couple beers, listen to the band, enjoy the sunset and catch up with my friends and neighbors.  I know so many people here, but rarely see them anymore.

Meadview SO SUCKS!

Here are a few pictures taken around 2 pm:

I don’t know what I was thinking when I got these brats at TJ’s, must have been the Bavarian packaging.   I haven’t bought pork in many years and am mostly vegetarian. They’re not my favorite Nuernberger bratwurst and not the Munich weisswurst either, but they actually were quite good — with lots of Grey Poupon and a couple Spaten.


Almost forgot to post the rather short video of the band doing Secret Agent:

This could have been a very fun beautiful afternoon!

Meeting the needs of Dolan Springs 4/28/18

From the DSCC newsletter:

April 28th a group of local citizens (Bob Waldorf and Debbie Bibi of Bibi’s Talent, Frank Geraci of Mohave Rancho Lumber, Jay Tschudy of Grand Canyon West Art Gallery) want to talk about “Meeting the Needs of Dolan Springs”.  What activities and programs should the community consider addressing and resolving? What improvements are needed for the town and its citizens? The public is encouraged to attend.

Frank is one of the few Dolanites who sometimes shows up for the LMRFD board meetings, don’t know the others.   I’ll try to be there.  Don’t live in Dolan, but nobody in Meadview EVER asks what the community wants.  In fact, just stating what I want (a community, not some stuck up morons running their private country club at MY expense) got me banned from the MCA and ads in the Meadview News were refused for YEARS!

In case you’re new here, the people who run Meadview prohibit video recording COM events to ensure that we can’t publicize and document their constant lies.

I just wish it wasn’t such a long drive to Dolan, so much we could do in their community hall!
