Like Summer, Like winter
Okay, so we here in Northern California do not have the blizzards and snowfall that we see back East. Maybe some in our mountainous areas, but not here in Healdsburg. But never-the-less this week has been a real mixture of seasons. We do have the dogwood bl...

Happy 87th Day -- Easter !
It is truly a surprise that 23.8% of 2016 has come and gone but it has happened. And it is Easter already. There are 279 more days to go this year and after 225 days we will have elected a new president. Today, in Northern California it is clear, crisp, sun...

It's About Time . . .
I woke up later this morning than I normally do, and it wasn't just about the time change. For some reason I was about one half hour later and so added to the Daylight Savings change I was already behind about and hour and a half . . . not a big deal really...

Leaplings, Lions vs Lambs, Oscars
Okay, so I delayed this post so that I could postmark it 29 February . . . how often do we get that opportunity. About every four years and this is the year. I wanted to report on how many folks in our tree have/had birthdays on this date but, I will have t...

Horse & Carriage (Go together like . . .)
And what could be more appropriate for Valentine's Day than Love & Marriage. This is a big day for most of us and for our loved ones. I remember those Valentine's days growing up and going to school where most of the kids shared cutout valentine cards with ...

Rings of Flowers
This has been a terrifying week for many around the world and specifically for locations found on the so-called "ring of fire".  My family resides in locations found on that ring and that fact is ever in our minds. I choose to think more of flowers than of ...

It's All About Cousin-Mania
Besides the sun and the beautiful skies this week, my world has been filled with cousin talk, cousin connection and the exhilarating feeling of some accomplishment. The topic of cousins seems so easy to grasp and yet -- it can  get complex what with 1st, 2n...

March Springness . . .
Here it is the very first day of spring, 2016 and it is already  still raining. All day so far, light and constant. It is hard to juggle the times for Dino to run outside for his "business trips" so he gets minimal moisture exposure. But the day has brought...

A Bit of Sun, Out in the Back
Actually we had a bit of sun out in the front as well, but not too much. This was a promised week of el nino rain and it has delivered. Today there is a bit of morning sun but the weather report says a 100% chance of rain again today. The floral display & t...

So, How's By You Then, Hey?
Growing up we might have heard that kind of greeting when we were out and about. I did hear something like that the other day and it got me thinking . . . and then my attention went with  the weather this week. It rained heavily for a couple more days (topp...

A DAY in the BAY . . .
It is truly amazing that for the last several weeks the weather has been cool, cold, rainy and some sporadic sunshine.  But today is like the best summer day ever, mid-seventies and sun, lots of it. How did the NFL do it? It's almost like they touched base ...
