#SocialCurrentSee® ▶ #Relax* (ROT#1 ▶ @ALTACITIES in @Storify "Rules of Tumb" — Mike Foxworth (@ALTALOMAN) May 30, 2016
One of the ROTs (meaning Rules of Thumb) that I am prone to follow on a consistent basis is to spend time daily compiling, writing, and publishing to my family of blogs, all under the moniker #SocialCurrentSee.  If you don't get it, the personal rule is "creativity stems from passion".

Blogging, for me, is more than a creativity exercise, but it is a personal journal to facilitate storytelling and a wide range of topics. What started about then years ago at the diagnosis (DX) of my cancer (mantle cell lymphoma or MCL) has evolved to include a family of blogs and sites using the synergy of the three URLs captioned under the photo above.

From our oasis of a retirement community, a common interest development (aka HOA or homeowners association) in the Inland Empire of Southern California (Trilogy Glen Ivy), the topic of disaster recovery following an earthquake is the subject of debate and study by a committee made up of condominium homeowners living in the area.

If you have never been to Trilogy, you would not know that the community of 1317 homes includes what is known as a Special Benefit Area (SBA), the Cobblestone Canyon subdivision of 170 condos that are uniquely built as two-unit pods (see inset photo).  That is the homes have upper and lower units, only two homeowners per dwelling.

Word is that this community, finished about ten years ago by Shea Homes, is one of only about six such configurations (designs) in the whole state of Californi…
