Naim R.I.P.

Wednesday - 15 December 2010

My friend just died. We were tight in the 80’s in Fairfax. We worked together at The Good Earth Natural Food Store when it was on Bolinas Road. We ate together at Wildwood Cafe. We watched Purple Rain a dozen times! He ‘turned me on’ to some fun dance disco music (Pointer Sisters) when dancing […]


Wednesday - 1 December 2010

We bought a new to us Toyota Tundra. I have been looking online, Craig’s List, from Oregon south to the bay area for a month or more, every day. Seems like if you have a Toyota truck, especially a Tundra, you don’t sell them. They don’t lose value and there are few to find, especially […]

Thanksgiving Day

Friday - 26 November 2010

We spent the day at Charlie’s house, just up the road from us. His grand-daughter Bailey was with us for a little while, it’s always a joy to see her and watch her grow up. A very relaxed day of cooking and eating, with Penny & Charlie, and Tim arriving with a delish apple pie. […]

Time Keeps on Slippin’

Friday - 29 October 2010

I missed spring, summer and most of the fall. It is now winter, with rain and gray days, running the generator way too much as there isn’t enough solar to keep our small system going. I haven’t been off the land to town in over 44 days now! Thank the goddess for internet as it […]

End of Summer Colds

Thursday - 23 September 2010

Russel started working back at the schools on last week, by Wednesday (Sept 13) he came home with fever and chills which launched into a full on sinus & head cold. I managed to keep feeling good until Sunday, the 18th, when a cough started and by Monday I was full on into a head […]

Ter is Visiting!

Tuesday - 10 August 2010

I have an E-friend, Terry, who I met through my old friend from the Boulder days, TR, who now lives in Florida, he connected us years ago, (they are a couple) and we have been emailing and now Facebooking for almost 10 years! She was in Washington state, heading south, so I encouraged a visit. […]
