Believe These Skills

25th October 2016

Dear (Censored) Institute,

I take interest in your position for a Behavior Therapist as I have a BA in Psychology from (University) and four years of experience working with the homeless of Hollywood. I worked with eighteen to twenty four year olds, many of them drug addicts and violent cases, in a safety and security setting. I was even injured once when a client became violent and broke a clock over my face. I would have to think that children can’t be much more dangerous. 

I developed a reputation for being patient and understanding. It was important to take every case as an individual problem had by a distinct person. There were no once size fits all cures, and the clients I worked with needed to know that I really cared about them.

I believe these skills will translate to your needs,

Richard Leland Neal

Dear Internet Archive,

I take something of an interest in your posting for a book digitizer. I’ll grant you my work in security is out of left field for what you’re looking for, but a Security Officer is professionally patient. I can lift more than 100 pounds and have had a great deal of experience with scanners and digital photography.  I currently use a Canon 60D.

I do have a degree in Psychology and I understand the need to keep my research materials clean and understandable. I have worked jobs were my actions save lives and I imagine that the books aren’t going to come in under the influence of drugs or do anything nasty. Compared to what I do this is an easy job.

You have a safe day,

Richard Leland Neal

1994 Royals Yearbook Review

So, this is my only surviving yearbook from Jr. High School. There is very little I can say about it as there is almost nothing in the way of commentary. This book is just literally pictures with names. 

I have to say this brings back nothing but bad memories. My Jr. High was a hive of nasty and from what I'm told, people who live in the area can now hear the children, eleven to fourteen year old's, cursing as they walk home. 

Who should read this book: Just about no one unless you have one, and you want to look back on things.

Only Your Cats

This is a letter from County of Los Angeles Animal Care and Control. Note that they say there is no evidence the suspect killed my animals. The suspect in this case admitted to killing cats but never admitted to killing my cats.

Dirty Animal Control Officer

Fur fount after the disappearance of one of my animals, a cat named Cheshire, believe to have been torn from her by the suspect.
Friends and Neighbors, this as a review I wrote regarding the Downy Office of County of Los Angeles Animal Care and Control. I posted this both on Yelp and FaceBook but the Yelp review appears to have been taken down.  

The law entitles me to an unbiased investigation. They have yet to conduct such and investigation. Here is my Review:

Officer Armando Ferrufino(Badge number 60) investigated my report of animal abuse. I reported in writing that my neighbor confessed to killing cats with a twenty two caliber rifle and burying them under his rose bushes.

After the investigation Officer Ferrufino had the nerve to ask me for a favor on behalf of my cat killing neighbor. My neighbor wanted some stuff he left on my property back. I have four dead cats and one with over two thousand dollars in medical bills.

Hay, Armando, investigations are supposed to be confidential and you can ask that man to pay for what he did to my cats!

This is swift. I believe her to be the first animal belonging to me that the suspect destroyed. At the time I owned one cat and one dog.  
This is Pork Chop. He was found by a neighbor, and I took him in. The suspect forbid me from having this animal registered and told me that I could not keep him. The suspect was known to feed this animal biscuits that he would not let my other dog eat. Pork Chop died shortly after. As the suspect worked in a hospital for thirty years he would have had access to chemicals that could have killed my dog. 
This is Hyde. The suspect was friendly with this animal and even entered photographs he took of the cat in a contest at the VA Hospital in Long Beach. This was the third of my animals that I believe to have been killed by the suspect. 
This is Shannon but the suspect called her "Mamma Cat". She was  a feral cat, but the suspect stated that he had been feeding this animal. One day I found her an a kitten in my house. The kitten had been wounded with a pellet gun. I believe the suspect to have killed this animal as well as most of a litter of kitten she had been seen with. 

This is Ire she was found in my living room and believed to be the kitten of Shannon. She had a wound through her paw that looked like it had been made by a pellet gun. Months later after I had her registered, chipped, and fixed she was shot a second time in the right eye. I informed the suspects spouse and the next time I saw the suspect he came running up to me stating that my cat had not been shot in the eye. I had never accused him. 
This is Cheshire. The suspect insisted she was killed by coyotes and knew exactly where she had been last I saw her. I believe he killed this animal, who was friendly with him, and tor out her fur to make it look like an animal attack. I've seen coyotes attack cats. For that much fur to be left behind I would have heard the animals fighting. Further, that was no way he could have been that sure she was killed by a coyote unless he had seen it himself.    
This is Bob Denver. The suspect knew he had a broken skull without being told. I consulted a man with three years experience as a detective with law enforcement. After hearing my statement he concluded that the suspect either was responsible or was connected with the party responsible for killing my animal.  
After Officer Ferrufino stated that he had concluded my case and found no evidence he tried to convince me that coyotes had killed my animals. How a coyote could have cracked my cats skull and left him in the street for me to find is beyond me.

I requested a copy of his report and found that Officer Ferrufino had omitted my report from his file, failed to properly record my statements, and made no attempt to learn if the suspect owned the twenty two caliber rifle that he stated he had used to kill cats. 

There is no indication that Officer Ferrufino even asked the suspect if he owned a pellet gun that could have caused Ire's wounds or for that matter asked about any firearm or pellet gun. 

I pay animal registration, and I have a right to a proper investigation.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander Book Review

"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander" is a collectible of the Harry Potter universe and meant to be a reproduction of Harry's textbook from the famed Hogwarts School of Magic and Witchcraft.

There is very little to this textbook having in it very few bits and odds from the Harry Potter world and only few notes written down by Mr. Potter himself. 
I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy reading this book, but I would have enjoyed it more if it had been longer and more in depth with more illustrations and more notes. 

That is to say the worst part of this book is that their is so little of it that you are left unsatisfied. Now again, this book is meant to be sold as a charitable act and proceeds go to a learning foundation. That was why I got a copy of this book.

Who should read this book? The charitable an the Potter fans.

If it isn't on Paper

26th October 2016

My Dear (health related employer),

I have a BA in Psychology from CSU Fullerton and have spend four years of my life working with the homeless population of Hollywood and where as you may think this experience is irrelevant to your work I can assure you that it is very similar. I most often dealt with cannabis but other drugs were common issues at this work.

It was considered very important to document activities and problem behaviors on the part of clients. There were Case Managers at my facility that in a span of ninety days would get notes from no other person than myself. I will admit that I have been accused of over documenting, but that is only because I believe the work is so important.  Further, I believe that if it is not on paper than it did not happen so I write everything that happens down.

I’ve talked clients down from suicide, watched over clients experiencing withdrawal, and called for medical aid in dealing with clients who have overdosed. In addition, I’ve spend my whole life working with a mentally disabled member of my family.    

What you get with me is a man who can stand high pressure situations. People have been entrusting me with their lives for nearly two decades now in the field of security and I never let them down.
