Silicon Valley or "Snoop Valley" and the NSA

Original post made by Pamela Derwent, Crescent Park, on Jun 24, 2013

Friends of mine from Canada told me we now live in "Snoop" Valley.

This is not good for the local community or for our kids to know they are growing up in "snoop valley."

It must be like kids growing up in the oil fields of Texas knowing that their parents jobs were based on a greedy industry with no respect for their future.

We call should call it PATRIOT Valley, after George Bush's USA PATRIOT Act that enabled it all.

It's also known as Silly Valley.

Don't think the kids will worry about any nickname - this is their home and they do OK here.

I think we live in something just short of paradise and are extremely fortunate to live here. Instead of any snarky nicknames I will just call it home and be thankful I get to call it that.

Pamela Derwent--well if your friends in Canada say so then it has to be true!!!
I will contact some CEOs I know in Europe and see if they agree.

Why not just park the pups outside Baume and ask around?
