I would say the entire Shopping center needs night time video surveillance cameras, just a matter of time before the salon is hit again to steal the NEW computers. Or, better yet get computers you can take home at night.

Gordon I love how you assume "manicurists" can't afford nice computers. Computers are a necessity in the salon industry. Having the latest and greatest is the "thing" and they actually make great money... Maybe not "ruby hills" money but enough to have a shop in pleasanton! Insert snobby upturned nose here

I am always amazed, disgusted and embarrassed by the comments on these boards. They stole their own computers??? Does that mean that it should be suspected that the burglaries in Ruby are committed by the homeowners to get the insurance, too? I mean, after all Gordon, you have extensive security so it must be an inside job to get new diamonds and keep the old ones, too! Give me a break. I love this town but so often can't stand a lot of the people who live here.

Lavandu is a day spa, not a salon and we do not provide hair or nail services. The business is owned by Pleasanton residents and we worked very hard to be able to open the business and offer something to the community. We have a nice reputable establishment and offer advanced skin care and massage therapy catering to women who appreciate quality and attention to detail. It is truly unfortunate that something like this happens. My hope is that this news would alert other businesses to be vigilant of people who patronize their offices/store/business as they could be scoping out valuables with the intent to return during non-operating hours and help themselves to your hard-earned assets. Suggestions that are productive and offer value are appreciated, even kind words, but insensitive and ignorant comments are dismissed. My best to the readers and may you and your family be well and stay safe.

Whenever there is news of any stealing anywhere in or around Ruby Hill, I fire all my cooks, butlers, nannies, and yardworkers. I assume the servants are linked to other servants and that the inside jobs always indicate the potential for spreading crime throughout the community. It's unfortunate that working class people cannot be trusted around money. That's why we have time clocks and foremen, after all.

Unfortunately for you, you don't have the intelligence to know that having a lot of money has nothing to do with having class. Yes, most in the true upper class do have a lot of money, but never flaunt it, and never have the need to TELL people how intelligent and classy they are. No one on here has you confused with those people. And, again unfortunately for you, you will never buy your way in. I do think you at least have enough intelligence to know that. It is probably that insecurity that spurs post trying to validate how smart, rich and "classy" you are. In the future it would behoove you to know that isn't something that a member of the upper class would EVER do.

To Logical Thinker:
Gordon probably can't deduct charitable donations because it sounds to me like he's probably between 15-17 years old. I'm sure he has a big allowance from mommy and daddy, but doesn't pay taxes yet.
I could certainly see him living in Ruby Hill based on his pretentious comments. But the writing style just reeks of a bored and spoiled teenager who is just trolling around for a cheap thrill - must mean he can't get a date or he wouldn't be wasting his time here! :-)
