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

Post-storm life


We had a couple of big winter storms blow through last week.

But today our neighborhood looks brand new. It almost sparkles.

Grand Slam


On the same day first lady Michelle Obama kicked off her campaign against childhood obesity,

Denny's restaurant chain gave awy Grand Slam breakfasts to one and wll. How ironic is that?

Resident Mountain Lions

I've only seen a mountain lion on our place once. But it was an amazing sight.

Judges for a day


The annual Academic Decathlon gives students a chance to compete intellectually and socially,

and volunteer judges like Sweetheart Al and me a chance to see how really inspiring todays

highschoolers are.

The Sound of Rain


I can hear the rain turning my footpath soft and muddy. There will be ponds in the

lower fields by morning.

Chili cookoff


A day full of tasting backdoor chili, after burner chili, foothill chili, mama's chili, hot brick chili,

Latte chili, Cactus Joe's chili and a dozen more.

Storm leftovers


When winter storms blow through, they leave broken limbs,

downed trees and rushing rivers. They also leave pools and ponds

and fresh meadow-streams.

Venturing out after the storm

Animals -- wild and domestic -- are stretching their legs now that the storm has passed.

Storm Watch: Look out for wandering bovines

Look out for wandering bovines.

What to do when the electricity goes out

A violent winter storm forces us to provide our own heat.
