Outside Idyllwild: Another day, another sunset …

Well here we are again, still stuck in a monsoonal flow of hot, humid (by Southern Californian standards), cloudy, lightning stormy, thunderous and wet weather.   I made the mistake of telling Miss Wyoming that we virtually never get rain in the summertime but Sunday night’s lightning and rain has totally made me into a […]

Lola’s Kitchen: Connie and Charlotte …

Connie was a quiet, serious child, three years younger than I am. Often after teasing her unmercifully, my mother would eventually intervene. She would admonish me and warn, “Just wait until […]

Creature Corner: Sept. 13, 2012

Stormy, the white wolf mix, went for a walk, and ARF’s search team, consisting of one, reunited him in short time. Paws up! Adopted were Pearl, our calico kitten, and Vincent, our gray and white kitten. That leaves Bo Peep and Pepper. New to the cattery, two tux kittens, 10 months old: Sadie and Carly. […]

Opinion: Computer scams 2

I have received many of these calls trying to tell me my computer is infected with a virus or trojan. There is no doubt this is a scam. They want you to buy a program that does maintenance on your computer. Of course, once you install that program they have access to your computer. On […]
