“The project is currently funded and led by California Barrel Company, with support from Associate Capital and Meg Whitman, the CEO of HP Enterprise. The overall development would introduce up to 2,700 new housing units, 220 hotel rooms, 600,000 square feet of office space and more than 100,000 square feet of retail (including a new grocery store).
All my personal photographs are copyrighted, as is all my text, and, the name “California Barrel Company” which I have plans to use in a product for sale. I can not name this product. It is pure genius!
For two days I have been conducting an arduous search for the founder and owner of the California Barrel Company LLC. Late last night, I found him – I think! The listed owner is Enrique Landa, however, he is being backed by the infamous Meg Whiteman, who spent $140 million dollars to beat Gavin Newsom, who is a partner of my nemesis, Larry Chazen in PlumpJack founded by Gordon Getty. Setting up tax havens for large companies is Chazens specialty. Someone should have googled the CBC. They would have found me. Meg worked with Steven Spielberg. Who knows what kind of Hollywood hocus-pocus business they got going here. Wolfer Skluwer would make a great Bond villain.

Already reeling from a Name Attack by Ed Ray, the President of OSU, I am now launching another defense – by going on the attack by employing my newspaper, Royal Rosamond Press. I made several calles to people involved, and sent e-mails. I got no responce. I gave them a tinkling of my family history. Now, I bring out the BIG GUN. My families tombstones may have been used as a seawall. Some were used to make gutters. In the Portreo Plan there is talk of rising water levels due to global warming. The ancient taboo about screwing with the dead, did not apply to San Francisco real-estate moguls. The A in JANKE fell off in the earthquake of 92.
When I read Ms. Whitman’s resume, and, who she knows, I knew I should be in the middle of them, chatting away, telling my family stories via a wand and big screen T.V.
“These are my kind of people!” thought I. But, tis another illusion, my latest temptation. Knowing how poor and powerless I am, and how much I spend to give My Magic away for free, I know I am a great threat to these Illusion Makers – that love to make money. I just want to make magic. We SF Hippies were like that. This is why I decided to run for President. I am in need of a safe home. I want to promote drug-free Bohemian-Hippie Ideas, before I die. We were ripped and vilified. It’s a tradition that Trump carries on.
“Must beat hippies for Rush and Hannity!”
There does not have to be a Battle of the Bay. When I read Meg was working on putting folks in space, I wondered if she was the benevolent Star Woman that took over the core of the Gideon Computer.
As to the legend Joaquin Miller carried infant my father on his lap when he went with Melba to SF, Miller died in 1913. I suspect it was Alice Broderick who carried Melba, she off to have lunch with her husband, William Broderick, who lived in Oakland, and worked at the CBC office at 1 Drumm Street in the financial district. The Bohemian writers used to meet at the stock exchange on Montgomery Street. Why Joaquin never ran for President, or talked about Spaceships, may be chalked up to his fear people may think he has gone – over the top! His mother had come from Coburg Oregon to live with him.
My science fiction novels are coming true! I worked on Elfine at the same time I worked on ‘The Gideon Computer’. Elfine is about Ivan, a Russian Master Spy, who ends the cold war because his dream was to live in Steinbeck Country and grow Socialist Lettice I found out Ivan is Russian for John, which is our President’s middle name. Many of our master spies are concluding Trump tried to end the latest cold war because he is very chummy with Putin, a master spy. Ivan had a half-breed alien daughter who was sent to live with him on his ranch. Sounds like trouble! Well, my science fiction books – came true!
I was on the bus with Sandy when I decided to run for mayor. I told her I would have a fireside chat and invite special guests. It was then I realized ‘The Authentic Human Being Show’ was about to become a reality. When I found Meg Whitman, I had – arrived!
Contact me, Meg! I own californiabarrelcompany.com Why not back a ‘Sure Loser’? I am kin to Ian Fleming and have been inventing a new way for young people to view movies – too – out of necessity, because the Bond movie folks will never have a Bond woman. They don’t know how! I already picked our star. My blog is a Never-ending Story and can be an ap. I have considered letting World Press put ads on my posts. Make me an offer! You don’t want anything to go wrong in Dogpatch, like the dead in Colma rising from their graves to take back what belongs to them.
In Meg’s Master Plan there is a call for art and murals. The Benton Muralists are in my family tree, thanks to the marriage of my famous sister, Christine Rosamond Benton who was born in Vallejo and grew up in Oakland. Our father was born in San Francisco. William F. Broderick is the third adult from the left. This photo was taken in the Oakland Hills where my grandfathers moved from SF after the Great Quake.
“In late 2018, Meg Whitman announced that she was to be the first employee and CEO of Jeffrey Katzenberg‘s new video streaming platform Quibi. . The platform will specialize in original, short-form content designed for smartphones. Katzenberg and Whitman have sold the idea as a mobile-based Netflix. Their investors include Disney, NBCUniversal, Sony, Viacom, and AT&T’s newly-rebranded WarnerMedia.
Here is my historic CBC worksheet.
During the 1860’s a literary movement of considerable force and originality flourished in that boisterous, gaudy, nouveau riche metropolis of the frontier, San Francisco. Gathered here were Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Ambrose Bierce, Henry George, and a number of lesser lights, such as the flamboyant Joaquin Miller. Their activities produced one of the most exciting of American provincial rebellions.
Margaret Cushing Whitman (born August 4, 1956) is an American business executive, political activist, and philanthropist. Whitman served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Whitman was a senior member of Mitt Romney‘s presidential campaigns in both 2008 and 2012 and ran for governor of California as a Republican but supported Hillary Clinton in 2016.
A native of Cold Spring Harbor, a hamlet of Huntington, New York, Whitman is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Business School. Whitman served as an executive in The Walt Disney Company, where she was Vice President of Strategic Planning throughout the 1980s. In the 1990s, she served as an executive for DreamWorks, Procter & Gamble, and Hasbro.
Whitman served as President and Chief Executive Officer of eBay, from 1998 to 2008. During Whitman’s 10 years with the company, she oversaw its expansion from 30 employees and $4 million in annual revenue, to more than 15,000 employees and $8 billion in annual revenue. In 2014, Whitman was named 20th in Forbes List of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World.
In 2008, Whitman was cited by The New York Times as among the women most likely to become the first female President of the United States. In February 2009, Whitman announced her candidacy for Governor of California, becoming the third woman in a 20-year period to run for the office. Whitman won the Republican primary in June 2010. The fifth-wealthiest woman in California with a net worth of $1.3 billion in 2010, she spent more of her own money on the race than any other political candidate spent on a single election in American history, spending $144 million of her own fortune and $178.5 million in total, including money from donors. Whitman was defeated by Democratic former Governor Jerry Brown in the 2010 California gubernatorial election by 54% to 41%.
The last Portals described how, starting in 1854, four cemeteries were installed in the then-desolate Lone Mountain area of the Inner Richmond District. Neighborhood boosters began a campaign at the turn of the century to clear this 320-acre city of the dead.
The vast majority of bodies were moved to mass gravesites, and anyone wanting to have decedents privately reburied had to pay for it themselves. Laurel Hill’s site is located in Cypress Lawn Cemetery, and called Laurel Hill Mound. Anyone who wanted to preserve a loved one’s tombstone had to pay for it themselves, and those left more than 90 days after the relocation were turned over to the Department of Public Works. They were repurposed for sea wall construction at Aquatic Park, creation of a breakwater in the Marina, lining for rain gutters in Buena Vista Park, and erosion control at Ocean Beach.
A curator for the Oakland Museum called me yesterday and asked me to e-mail him the photograph of my kinfolk having a picnic in the Oakland Hills. I had just returned from Dot Dotsons in Eugene where Jo framed a enlargement of this historic event in a antique frame I purchased. She did a splendid job!Thanks to the Trust my uncle Vincent Rice left me, I have more funds to investigate and record my lost family history. Being poor I have had to endure hardship in order to visit my newfound daughter and newborn grandson in California. Tyler’s father was not there for his son, so when I went to see him for the first time I made a point to ground him in the history of my father’s people whom I and my cousin had just discovered were in a tomb at Cypress Lawn in Colma.
We three were the first kin to enter this tomb in many years. Tyler took an early lunch when Heather breast-fed her son on a marble bench facing the Tiffany window. Afterwards we went atop a hill and had a picnic next to these beautiful angels. Heather told me Tyler remembers being there. I was amazed when I saw his eyes follow a plane in the sky, and then smile.
My friend, Joy, had given me a special AA coin with the image of an angel on it for my late sister, Christine Rosamond, that I slipped into a crack made by an earthquake.
When we drove through San Francisco on our way home, I told Heather this was her and Tyler’s town now, for the Stuttmeisters are listed as a pioneer family, and made the Blue Book. In some respects, this was a Baptism.
