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 ...

Diamond Jubilee -- Redaction Reaction
A Diamond Jubilee was celebrated in our home this week! A "quiet, down-home" celebration unlike some of the ones that we have seen publicly. We're into that time when simpler events are meaningful and rewarding. And that is just what we had for Gail: What i...

Grads -- Circumstances & Pomp
"Our town" had another high school graduation a couple of nights ago. We are fortunate to be the beneficiaries of some of the pomp but not a great deal of the circumstances. The pomp comes in the form of the sounds carried over the speaker system that we ca...

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...

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...

Fourth & 10 . . .
After 70 some "4ths" this is pretty much a favorite holiday -- ranks up there with Thanksgiving in that as Jimmy Kimmel put it " I don't have to wrap anything".  I agree. It is just a day to reflect and enjoy. Usually we enjoy BBQ'd eats and a terrific fire...

Last Day of Spring -- Paternal Recognition
It is that day that -- before the addition of cell phones -- amounted to the largest day of collect calls across the U.S.  Some may not remember collect calling, but while Mother's Day generated one of the largest calling days of the year, Father's Day gene...

School Is Out . . . Now What?
Sure, it is easy for some, but even though it has been 50 ? some years since school has been out for some of us, that question still lingers in the memory base -- "what to do during summer vacation?" Our house borders with an elementary school and all week ...
