  • History for Kids – California Gold Rush
    Not long ago we were in San Francisco listening to a presentation on local history. Even though I am a native Californian, I must have slept through the history lessons in class. The discussion prompted me to check out a few books from the library, all of them children’s books. I confess I don’t usually… Continue Reading →
  • Along the Sacramento River
    Sometimes other people’s wit catches us by surprise. My son and I have been walking along the Sacramento River now and again, and this grafitti never fails to amuse me. All the more relevant as there are homeless encampements and lots of dogs in the area. Love and Poop. That’s all we need. Or is… Continue Reading →
  • The Whispered Word – Book Review

  • Don’t Stop. Running.
    Musing on the habit of (not) running.
  • Ready Set Rogue by Manda Collins
    I picked this book up after reading another book by Manda Collins, A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem. I found the plot of that book entertaining, and who doesn’t enjoy a well off widow doing basically whatever she likes, but especially bucking tradition? Ready Set Rogue is one of those romance novels I don’t… Continue Reading →
  • The Secret, Book and Scone Society
    The Secret, Book and Scone Society by Ellery Adams is a well-written book. Here’s an extract from the Amazon blurb: Strangers flock to Miracle Springs hoping the natural hot springs, five-star cuisine, and renowned spa can cure their ills. If none of that works, they often find their way to Miracle Books, where, over a… Continue Reading →
