Honey Boo-Boo at a KQED pledge drive? I don’t think so. The heating company showed up last Friday. The installer spent seven hours on the project. He did a professional job. The new appliance works just fine. However, when it came time to test the thermostat, a modern, digital version, the annual argument commenced. My beloved spouse and I have never agreed on how hot, or cold, the house ought to be. Needless to say, I believe in an economical thermostat setting, designed to keep those PG&E natural gas costs to a blessed minimum. My life partner, on the other hand, has a decidedly different view.

“Over the last year or two, we talked a lot on the phone,” Lynch said. “I sent her articles from the Saratoga News related to her family. She was very, very, very sweet.”. Of her reported feud with her sister, Lynch said Fontaine never expressed any bitterness toward de Havilland in their conversations. When she did talk about her, it was usually a recollection of their childhood in Saratoga, Lynch said. She recalled Fontaine telling her that she loved her five dogs more than anything. She had described them as “my family” and said, “I’m a very affectionate person, and no man was ever able to satisfy that need for affection as well as my dogs do.”.
