Le Sacre du Printemps
It is springtime and it is in evidence all around us. I think back to my "Music Appreciation" class in college and remember very well learning about "Le Sacre du Printemps" performed by Igor Stravinsky -- I still enjoy that piece and am thankful for being e...

PI in the Sky
The days this week have been mostly warm & sunny. Today is a little cloudy but that is okay for a change. It did rain ever-so-slightly the other day and it feels a little humid now as well. The week has been a mixture of scrambling for tax-related documents...

Indoor/Outdoor Sun
It has been a nondescript weather week here. We see on the news that weather in the Midwest, East, and Southern areas of the country has been anything but. After two full weeks the indoor plants are thriving. All 7 have visible growth though some are much f...

A Very Warm Valentine Day Greeting
The sun is working overtime this week in Northern California. The days are warm and sunny -- it does not do much for the drought, but it is very pleasant. This week has been filled with sessions -- sessions from the world's largest genealogy event held in S...

West Coast -- East Coast
There is a BIG difference in the geographic coasts in terms of current weather. We here in Northern California will again be in the 70s this weekend. Not so in the East. It is fair to say that the respective roads look similar to the above. I have lived wit...

Rain . . . and Then Some
It's true, we did get some rain this week. Not a lot but some. The grass and other plants appreciate it. The forecast does not look good though for much more rain in the near future. We still are living in the shadow of a big drought. There's something comf...

SPRING MOON MADNESS
This has been a full week -- so what does that mean -- all weeks are full to some extent. But I mean that my week has been filled with a variety of things. And a lot seems to be happening. It actually has finally reached springtime: First of all the dogwood...

EL NINO & NOR'EASTER
Okay so the sounds of the day today would depend on what part of the country you are in . . . as I write this post I can hear the sounds of aluminum striking a solid round object (baseball) while I can only imagine the sounds of aluminum striking solid or f...

Siberian Pineapples
The weather this week alternated between warm, fairly warm, cool, fairly cool and somewhere in between. Not of course to the coastal extremes that we see on the news. Eight feet of snow in some cities back East while very little snow pack here in the West: ...

Pineapple Express -- Umbrella Down
All week we were being warned of the pending storm to hit Northern California. After many days of "nothing" to speak of in terms of weather -- it arrived on Friday: Apparently this weather has a definite channel right from Hawaii to us here in California. A...

It's Just Grand . . .
We did not get any rain this week, but we did get some sunshine -- enough that I think some of the plants thought it to be springtime. The roses are already starting to look grand. I hope that they don't pay the price as we are still getting some cold weath...
