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

New unemployment figures -- good news or same old jazz?

February's unemployment rate for our rural county dipped by three-tenths of a percent. How's employment in your neighborhood?

Wal-Mart and sex discrimination

Here it is, Women's History Month, and the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing arguments in what could become the largest class action lawsuit in history. How will the Justices rule?

Power's out

Power failures are frequent during winter storms. We had one yesterday that lasted more than six hours.

Winter flexes its muscle

Cold, wind and rain in the foothills and snow up the mountain are keeping Spring at bay. But I'm trying not to complain too loudly.

Japan through tears

The tragedy is too much for mere words, yet words are all I have...

The wonder of wild creatures

Humans are not the only interesting creatures on earth. At our place, the feathered and furry are equally fascinating.

California's promise of spring

The season of gold is upon us.

Abe and Sweetheart Al

Meeting Abe on his 202nd birthday was an unexpected delight . 

Morning magic on the California Delta

About 10 million birds pass through California's Delta every year. Sweetheart Al and I were thrilled by a few thousand one bright morning not long ago.

California living (country style)

Living way out in the sticks like we do means we have few conveniences. No drive-ins nearby, no clothing stores, not even a cell phone connection. But we are surrounded with beauty so exquisite it can steal your breath away or fill your eyes with tears.
