It's Fall . . . Really?
It is supposed to be 100° here in our town today -- that hardly says "fall". And speaking of that particular "f" word, we are reluctant to use it too often around here due to the current state of being. There are things falling around here just not us at th...

If Only . . . A Bad Dream . . .
As all the news is reporting -- it is "hard to believe that it has been fifteen years" but that is the way I feel as well. It was like yesterday that early (on the west coast) we turned on the TV to watch in disbelief. Supposedly it was a beautiful day in N...

Back to School
It hardly seems possible, but yet it is -- time for the youngsters to be back to school. When we were in  elementary (grade) school, it never started 'til after Labor Day. Things change. I feel sorry for the poor little guys -- not. Boy do I remember those ...

OUR WEEK, OUR WAY . . .
We have our ways . . . that is, most of the weeks lately have been similar. The weather changes our week some, and other circumstances change our week some, but for the most part we have our routine. I don't know how we ever squeezed in a "40 hour work week...

♪ Ninety-Nine and Counting ♪
The two convention events are finally over -- we can get back to recording regular TV -- just kidding.  But it is nice to be through with those two events which are supposedly designed to give voters the information they need to make a decision come Novembe...

Made in the Shade . . . 10° of Separation
Okay, so it was hot -- what else is new for Healdsburg in July? A lot I suppose, but we did have two or three days of 100° weather and NOW for the last two days it has been at least 10° cooler. Actually as I write this post and sit by the opened window ther...

Full Moon -- Full Sun . . .
September, one of my favorite months of the year and to have a full "harvest" moon is captivating. We go out each night and peer up through the lattice over the deck and spot the orangish sphere shining brightly. The other reality for September -- this week...

Respite from Labor . . .
Or so they say . . . even though we are retired and have been for several years, we'd welcome a respite from our everyday labor. But for us the everyday tasks still go on, maybe there should be a "Retired Persons Holiday".  Still "Labor Day" has a good ring...

Mil Gracias Rio !
And we mean it! The games of the 31st Olympiad have meant a lot to us. One thing it has meant is that we have something to watch instead of the status of the political campaigning. Just kidding, but not entirely. When we started watching we were wondering h...

RIO -- Really . . . Golden
Like many other folks we are enjoying the Olympics. We have set the DVR to record most of the four-hour segments that appear on NBC. The opening ceremonies were fun to watch especially seeing the entries from the 200 or so countries. We find it inspiring to...

Twenty Winks, And Then Some . . .
It's been that kind of week -- hot, air-conditioned and more of the same. Even the nights required some cooling. But each day this week was interesting from the standpoint of what the TV brought. We programmed several channels to the events in Cleveland and...

Dealing With A/C or Not . . .
It's almost embarrassing that amidst the heat of the week, we actually used the heat from the furnace a few times this week -- in the early morning hours that is. For some reason the weather was so strange this week that we went from one extreme to another ...
