Yesterday around dinnertime, there was a knock at my door. It was one of the neighbor ladies, and she was holding a clipboard. “Hi,” she said. “I’m circulating a petition for a ballot proposition for the City of Healdsburg.” “OK,” says I. “What’s it about?” “It would put water fluoridation in the City up for […]

We live in a farming community. Sure, the main crop around here is wine grapes. But there’s still a fair amount of livestock. Just a few blocks away from home, we’ve got a pasture with a couple of sheep (we’re waiting to see if we get more incredibly cute lambs this year). A bit farther […]

We went out to breakfast at the local coffee shop this morning. While we were there, we were chatting with our waitress, and as part of that mentioned that we wrote about computers and technology, and that we were mainly Mac users. She didn’t know much about computers, and she had heard of Macs, but […]
