  • Palabras Pintorescas: We had much in common with airline seatmate

    I learned long ago that travel  brings up all sorts of fun encounters with complete strangers. I have always enjoyed starting up a conversation with a complete stranger, and of course this was no different a couple of weeks ago when flying home from Seattle with son Carl.

    He (he has long legs so he sits on the aisle seat in an airplane) and I were joined by a classy lady who sat in the window seat. She and Carl both had work to do with their computers and I read the daily Seattle Times until snacks were served.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Getting out of the ranch and heading to Seattle

    Everybody needs a change of scene, and I’m no exception. So when my favorite grandson  (because I have only one grandson) decided to get married last week, I was both invited and expected to be there.

  • Cleveland Roller Mill focus of this month’s talk

    Submitted to the Optic

    For nearly 100 years the economy of the Mora Valley thrived on farming and milling as the primary source of grain and flour for much of the Western United States.

    The Cleveland Roller Mill, constructed near the turn of the century would become one of the largest and most successful mills built during this period, and would continue to operate until its closing in 1940. Today, the three story adobe flour mill operates as a museum dedicated to the rich past of farming and milling on which this place once thrived.
