Note from Stacey

Felix, the site looks great now. Thank you for your time and encouragement. Yes, it’s on to 5.10a’s these days. I climbed with Amanda and Cindy yesterday and even tried some steep overhangs. Much to my surprise, I accomplished the routes with just a few rests. Life on other fronts is not going so well. I had a rough morning, throwing up once at 5:15 a.m. and again at 8:30 a.m. So I was too tired to drive down to the hospital for a blood draw this morning. I also found out that I do not qualify for food stamps, even though I receive only a little over the $1000/month income limit from the government. Luckily, I am not hungry due to extra support/loans from friends and family, but I fear for the poor in the Bay Area. $12,000 year is an incredibly low income and I do not see how anyone could live here on that, a place where one room in an apartment costs $650/month. Everyone must cram into apartments and combine their incomes to make it work. The government food stamp program has steep requirements. Stacey, from Belmont
