Mendocino 4th of July parade, as seen from the balcony of the Mendocino Inn on Main Street.  Fun little parade-- I captured the whole thing!  Was surprised not to see a marching band in it, but nope.

On the balcony of the Mendocino Hotel & Inn, waiting for the 4th of July parade. Had a somewhat spendy but really excellent breakfast in the Garden Room downstairs. Very quiet n comfy room.

Yesterday rode the Skunk Train from Willits to Northspur round trip, then came out to Mendocino via 20, a really pretty drive thru Jackson Demonstration redwood forest. Had dinner in Ft Bragg and then went hot tubbing at Sweetwater, ice cream dessert at Frankie's. Yay!

I sided 88% with Bernie Sanders and 84% with Hilary Clinton.  Interesting.
I just took the 2016 Presidential election quiz and found that I side the most with Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders. Who do you side with?

+Mike The FordGuy lol, they get away with blatant murder even when caught on video doing it. So was OJ guilty or innocent of murder?
Doesn't mean shit if they get away with murder 99.9% of the time, fact is they fucking did it

Visited Muir Woods for the first time this past long weekend.  It blows away the other redwood forests I've visited, (Big Basin, Henry Cowell, Montgomery Woods).  Really glad we went, also glad we got off the main trail and took one of the hillside loops-- fewer people, even more beautiful scenery.

Passed 10K steps both yesterday and today. New plan of taking bus to work, walking to and from bus stop, is working. Glad my FitBit is keeping track for me.  Now if I could just stop using up all my Weight Watchers points in the first half of the week I'd be all set.  One day at a time.

Not doing a veggie garden this year due to the drought, but my fig tree has set a huge breba crop and an even bigger fall crop. Yum!

Just want to put it out there to my network that I am looking for a BurningMan ticket.  I'm registered in STEP, I will register for the OMG Sale, but those are still long shots.  If you or a friend has a spare ticket, I'd love to hear about it.

Usually I volunteer with the radio dispatch group and work like a dog in exchange for a ticket, but I was starting a new job this year and wasn't sure I could get the time off for the event.

Pioneer has really taken the stress out of owning a rental property. We rely on TJ and his staff to help us keep up on repairs, to manage good relations with the tenants, and to keep an eye on the property. They have always found us good people for tenants! We recommend them highly.
