Do you get LEG CRAMPS or have "Restless Leg Syndrome", especially at

good magnesium supplement

URGENT WARNING to ALL
SADDLEBACK HOMEOWNERS who
have a SOLAR SYSTEM !!
-----------------------------
Reps from PIONEER COMMUNITY ENERGY  made a
presentation at the
Municipal Advisory Council Meeting on
Tuesday, January 9, 2018 and this one important issue
became apparent:

If you have SOLAR SYSTEM, you are NOT supposed to be
automatically transferred to the new Pioneer program starting
in February.  The reason is that the Pioneer has not yet
implemented an equivalent to PG&E's annual NEM "True Up"
program.  As a result, you could LOSE YOUR NEM  $$$
BENEFITS if  you were accidentally enrolled in the program.

Jenine Windeshausen, Pioneer's Executive Director (also
Placer County's Treasurer), was present at the meeting and
stated that solar owners should NOT have received any letters
or flyers about the Pioneer program, essentially meaning that
they would not be automatically included.

HOWEVER, some solar owners DID receive the letters, which
implied that they would automatically be included if they did
not manually op-out.  Just to be safe, I recommend that...

...SOLAR OWNERS SPECIFICALLY
OP-OUT of the PIONEER PROGRAM.
You can do so on-line at THIS LINK,
or by calling:  (844) 937-7466

You will need to provide your PG&E account number, last
name and zip code, so have your PG&E bill available.

Jenine Windeshausen can be reached for questions at
JWINDESH@PLACER.CA.GOV  or by calling her at
(530) 889-4141

Don't Be Crabby -- Go to a Local
CRAB FEED and Be HAPPY!
Put on your best crab face and crabby 'flops'

 Lots of choices in the next two months!

This is a COMPREHENSIVE LIST of all the crab feed events we
could find that occur in our surrounding area; if we missed
any, please send an email with the details.  Some events are
very popular and may already be sold out, so investigate and
book your tickets early.
CRAB  -- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Crabs are decapod crustaceans of the infraorder Brachyura, which typically have a
very short projecting "tail" (abdomen) (Greek: βραχύς, translit. brachys = short, οuρά /
οura = tail), usually entirely hidden under the thorax. They live in all the world's
oceans, in fresh water, and on land, are generally covered with a thick exoskeleton
and have a single pair of claws. Many other animals with similar names – such as
hermit crabs, king crabs, porcelain crabs, horseshoe crabs, and crab lice – are not
true crabs.

Crabs are generally covered with a thick exoskeleton, composed primarily of highly
mineralized chitin, and armed with a single pair of chelae (claws). Crabs are found in
all of the world's oceans, while many crabs live in fresh water and on land, particularly
in tropical regions. Crabs vary in size from the pea crab, a few millimetres wide, to the
Japanese spider crab, with a leg span of up to 4 metres (13 ft).

About 850 species of crab are freshwater, terrestrial or semi-terrestrial species; they
are found throughout the world's tropical and semi-tropical regions. They were
previously thought to be a monophyletic group, but are now believed to represent at
least two distinct lineages, one in the Old World and one in the New World.

The earliest unambiguous crab fossils date from the Jurassic,[9] although
Carboniferous Imocaris, known only from its carapace, may be a primitive crab. The
radiation of crabs in the Cretaceous and afterward may be linked either to the break-
up of Gondwana or to the concurrent radiation of bony fish, crabs' main predators.

Crabs typically walk sideways (a behaviour which gives us the word crabwise),
because of the articulation of the legs which makes a sidelong gait more efficient.
However, some crabs walk forwards or backwards, including raninids, Libinia
emarginata and Mictyris platycheles. Some crabs, notably the Portunidae and
Matutidae, are also capable of swimming, the Portunidae especially so as their last
pair of walking legs is flattened into swimming paddles.

Crabs are mostly active animals with complex behaviour patterns. They can
communicate by drumming or waving their pincers. Crabs tend to be aggressive
towards one another, and males often fight to gain access to females. On rocky
seashores, where nearly all caves and crevices are occupied, crabs may also fight
over hiding holes. Fiddler crabs (genus Uca) dig burrows in sand or mud, which they
use for resting, hiding, and mating, and to defend against intruders.

Crabs are omnivores, feeding primarily on algae, and taking any other food, including
molluscs, worms, other crustaceans, fungi, bacteria and detritus, depending on their
availability and the crab species. For many crabs, a mixed diet of plant and animal
matter results in the fastest growth and greatest fitness. However, some species are
more specialised in their diets. Some eat plankton, some eat primarily shellfish like
clams, and some even catch fish. Crabs are known to work together to provide food
and protection for their family, and during mating season to find a comfortable spot for
the female to release her eggs.

Crabs make up 20% of all marine crustaceans caught, farmed, and consumed
worldwide, amounting to 1.5 million tonnes annually. One species, Portunus
trituberculatus, accounts for one-fifth of that total. Other commercially important taxa
include Portunus pelagicus, several species in the genus Chionoecetes, the blue crab
(Callinectes sapidus), Charybdis spp., Cancer pagurus, the Dungeness crab
(Metacarcinus magister), and Scylla serrata, each of which yields more than 20,000
tonnes annually.
HORSESHOE CRAB BLOOD IS AN
IRREPLACEABLE MEDICAL MARVEL
Biomedical companies are bleeding 500,000 every year.
Their distinctive blue blood is used to detect dangerous Gram-negative
bacteria such as E. coli, in injectable drugs such as insulin, implantable
medical devices such as knee replacements, and other hospital instruments.
