Welcome to Onword, mining life's golden moments from California's Mother Lode.

Springtime calves

The eager enthusiasm of spring calves makes me laugh with joy. And today, it has me thinking slightly deeper thoughts.

In honor of Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month and there's a lot of women's history to celebrate and admire. I've listed a few firsts for women and a few facts to ponder. I also included some good websites to learn more about women's many contributions to our culture, our nation and our world.

New Leather Gloves

When winter rains stop, spring cleanup begins. All the brush and undergrowth has to be cleared away to protect against summer wildfires.

Night Visitor

Following a fierce, night-long winter storm, I found a perfect paw print on my office door.

Warning: Don't drive with snow on your roof

Driving with snow on your roof can get you a fat traffic ticket. Be wise, brush it off before you drive.

Not exactly home sweet home

At first glance, the beam outside my office window looks like the perfect nesting place. But  it's really a Twilight Zone nightmare location.

Breakfast Blues

As unemployment rises, the sale of fast-food breakfasts is dropping through the floor.

This Year's Oscars

Obviously, I'm not in tune with the academy. The only winner I chose that agreed with the academy was "Up" for best animated film.

Winter’s grip weakens

Despite winter's chill and the dark insistent rain clouds, signs of spring are all around. We simply have to be patient and wait out another storm or two.

Defining who we are

Although there are many ways to define who we are, we generally choose one or two characteristics to say to others, "This is who I really am."
