For many years I have been so glad I don’t live in Menlo Park, with its tone deaf government.

Isn't that the place where the gypsy fortune teller had a place of business?

Pearl, yes she foretold the future of Menlo Park and decided to pack her bags and leave town before it was too late.

Hi, Whatever,

Don't know whether you're being facetious or not. Mine was a serious question. I lived in Menlo Park for 50 years, and, if I correctly recall, there was a gypsy family living in that building, one member of the family who made her living telling fortunes. I moved from Menlo Park 25 years ago and have never been back, so I don't know if the family is still there. I thought perhaps someone who knew would reply.

Pearl, Madame Katherine Palm Reader was next door at 135 ECR. Her real name was Katherine Adams and she owned that property. Don't know what happened to her but she would be about 85 now.
