    Solar-powered Canals – Are They the Future in California?

    Governor Brown’s recently announced plan to have California derive 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020 has opened the door for bold ideas to help achieve this. Carl Weidert, a retired, self-employed biologist who lives in Shingletown, has spent years garnering interest in his idea of utilizing California’s canals as solar arrays [...]

    Tea Party Tent Show – Notes on the State of Jefferson

    I’m a sucker for lost causes and the State of Jefferson is more lost than most. The quixotic notion that a half-million citizens in northern California and southern Oregon’s rural counties, frustrated with lack of representation at the state level, should band together, break away and form their own 51st state is not without merit. [...]

    The Kindness of Highlanders

    Two traits I’ve noticed about Highlanders are that they look out for each other, and they know everything about each other. The first is a consequence of remoteness – so far away from “civilization,” people have drawn together and helped each other out for generations. The second thing can go either way – there are [...]

    Free Therapy # 56: The Meaning of My Pain

    I am in pain.  I am not the only one. I feel like a self-absorbed baby even writing about it.  It is not “manly” to admit I hurt.  I know better of course.  I am well-acquainted with the heavy burden men carry in our culture to be tough.  Or at least to appear tough and [...]

But, it wasn’t always like [...]

    Matt’s Chats with Mike Cullen: Neighbor to the North

    Meet my friend Mike Cullen, a neighbor to the north in Ottawa Canada.  He’s a multi-talented go-getter with drive and pluck and a rather astonishing ability to write a new novel every year.  Seriously, every year.  If I wrote a book a year, you can believe they would be about five pages long and the [...]

    Mistress of the Mix: DOUCHE CANOE

    Imma just gonna come right out and say it. Kanye West is a straight up douche canoe. Some of you may take offense with my choice of words, comparing one of our country’s lamest excuses for celebrity status to a product that cleans lady parts and a vessel used to navigate calm waters, both useful [...]

    Just Sayin’: The Fine Art of Procrastination

    Ah, the fine art of procrastination. It is an art, you know. And there are rules; very important ones. Admittedly, the rules and the art are usually only known to the perpetrator. How do I know all this? Because I, for one, have been a practicing member of this club from very early in my [...]
