  • Yes, it was “water, water everywhere, and nary a drop to drink” as we say goodbye to September. Prayers surely were answered here in our mountains and we watched, with lots of other folks, as drops soon and suddenly became inches of rain.

    I love walking through our nearby forest; it is such a thrill to see our stately pines absolutely soaked; their bark is a glowing dark brown now and hopefully the visiting bark beetles will finally meet their match. Yes, if you want to see a very sick and dying forest, just drive down Mountain View Drive.

  • Cinderella The Story of Big Foot was a great success. The actors were very professional and spoke their lines without a hitch and they could be heard very well.  The performance was held Saturday night and again on Sunday afternoon at the Mora Elementary Gymnasium. For both performances there were more than a hundred people in attendance. It was a true comedy that kept the audience laughing as the actors did a great take off of the Cinderella story throwing in the fact that she had big feet.

  • Would you believe after all these years of goofing off and playing around, I am still a tried and true football fan? And, yes, I am in a fantasy football league, and my partner, Kat and I plan to win big time this year. Yes, I have my favorite teams and favorite players, but what and who Kat and I pick and who we end up with are two different programs. So it goes in this fantasy world!
