Apparently, Marissa Mayer has yet to see the movie Poltergeist. Before we know it, Facebook and Yahoo will both own Palo Alto and Mountain View properties, making it more difficult for small businesses, as well as buyers and renters. Why not renovate the current standings buildings and help the less fortunate / low income renters. Now, there's an idea. Oh, I forgot, that would take time, commitment and a heart.

That's one way to get rid of underperforming employees

If she has a 5600 sq ft property on .3 of an acre, how much house will be placed on 1+ acres?

She doesn't want to live right next to other people and so doesn't want that new development to come up. Rich people prefer exclusive neighborhoods with other rich people close by. But not too close by. They need their acreage. The view is important.

A mortuary is sold in Palo Alto and that's headline news in Mountain View?

What else is new? I read an article few days back that said Mark zuckerbeg is buying the neighborhood properties so that there won't be any more strangers living in his whole neighborhood block and Marissa is doing the same thing that no one other then can live right next to them. with the kind of money these folks are making, they will own cities/towns in the near future, will have their onwn hand picked people as city council members/mayors, police,etc.. you get the talks very loudly here. arrogance is the name of the game. ANd don't forget this..Mark and marissa want millions more immigrants in this country but they don't want anyone in their neighborhood.

I was at this funeral home about 11 years ago for a memorial service for a bible study member who died way before her time. I guess no one wants to use this funeral home anymore!!!???
