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

Loving California

The first time I visited California, I knew I'd found Paradise.

I hate being called a "consumer"

When did the word "consumer" come to mean anyone who spends money on anything?

Sweetheart Al buys a bicycle

Not only have I changed with the years, so have bicycles. I just bought my first new bike in more than half a century and, wow, what a difference from the bicycles of my childhood.

We live in a zoo

Some days you almost need to say "excuse me" to all the wild creatures crowding close.

Improve your life: Indulge in simple pleasures.

Simple pleasures surround us. By paying attention to them, we can find happiness even in a bum economy.

Sweltering in the foothills

Summer temperatures in the Gold Rush foothills of California do more than merely scorch the landscape.

When music turns torturous

Have you ever had a song in your head that will not stop? I did a little research to see if there's any proven method of stopping the broken-record in the brain syndrome (my name. Other's call the problem: earworms).

E-mail, it's magic!

More than surfing, more than research, more than social networking. What I love most about the Internet is e-mail! How about you?

Happy Birthday U.S.A.

A new poll reveals that one in four U.S. residents does not know who the colonists fought to achieve independence. Maybe we should all spend part of today boning up on American history, so we can know why we celebrate.

What's really on the barbecue?

You might want to think twice about those burgers and steaks. The FDA says meat is filled with antibiotics that are breeding drug-resistant bacteria.
