Yes, farmers use a whole lot of Golden State water. But there's no easy solution to the state's drought woes in turning off their taps.

No, I think something must have happened to change who's considered the go-to people. I'm amazed at the speed of the change given the importance of the library. I wonder if it's the internet that changed things? It looks to me like the writer has dug into a lot of sources and experts, none of whom seem to belong to the Natural Resources Library. This is a wow moment for me at how fast things that seemed permanent changed. Nothing more.

The wife of this couple remembered me from costuming and called out to me
while she was riding the giant trilobite and James and I were up in an
installation of disassembled pianos. Great Maker Faire moments!

I have plenty of bees showing up on my pond to visit the flowers and drink water; if they swarm on my property, it’s good to know who to call to find them a good home.

“Hard to do justice to these with a cell phone camera. They're multicolored lights that look like shrubbery made of clusters of small cubes, each cluster…”

Glad you made it to Maker Faire! We missed this year but I'm proud to have
done most of the previous nine.

System of interlocking shapes for building 3D geometric models. Use it in the classroom to teach math and arts or to create your own mathematical art sculpture.

A friendly sangha, newly established in its own quarters after many years at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Sunnyvale and recently organized into a nonprofit. Tuesday nights always start with sitting meditation at 7:30, walking meditation at 8:10, and Zen service at 8:20; at 8:30 we move to dharma discussion and spend an hour of freewheeling discussion centered around anything from ancient texts to modern Buddhist writings to dharma talks given by sangha members. Every month, there's an all-day retreat up at Jikoji in the hills above Los Gatos. At the moment, the group is quite small (usually less than a dozen showing up on Tuesday nights). They laugh at my jokes and enjoy the perspective I bring from a science background; the convivial atmosphere has kept me coming back for more than two years now.

A nice little hole-in-the-wall place, so small that the delicious cooking smells permeate the whole room.

Good food, a bit loud, but one of the few sources of Chinese food that uses a cooking oil that doesn’t upset my wife’s stomach.

Plenty of tasty choices, good service, and I can still order favorites that are no longer on the menu. And, of course, superb blueberry coffeecake.
