  • Back to School? Pack Andrea’s Healthy Bars

    School is back in session and it’s time to pack kids healthy lunches. Packing a healthy lunch that your kids will eat can be a challenge. I have one kid who refuses to eat at school; he finds eating there ‘gross.’ I think this is his first act of civil disobedience. He will eat a [...]

    Chiffon Revisited

    A few years ago, I wrote an article about hemming chiffon. To date, that article has had thousands of readers so I know people are still trying to learn how to hem chiffon. That article was mostly about marking the hem and I provided one method of actual hemming. Because there are always different ways [...]

    Free Therapy # 43: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

    All that we are is the result of what we have thought; It is founded on our thoughts, It is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, Happiness follows him, Like a shadow that never leaves him. Buddha When I first got into the counseling profession in [...]

    Just Sayin’: What Do I Leave the Kids?

    I’m sure everyone who has ever lived in a home with a garage has faced this dilemma at one time or another. I know there are those of you whose garage always looks your living room, or at least your study. Neat, orderly, put away, arranged just so . . . and even room left [...]

    Flanagan Trail to Chamise Peak – 700 ft. Climb to Unbelievable Vistas

    If you want a grand view of the amazing, vast beauty of Shasta County and beyond, then grab the family, your camera, your dog and hike to the top of Chamise Peak! It will not disappoint! Located north of Redding and east of Keswick Reservoir, this moderate-sometimes-steep hike is only 2.4 miles to the top. [...]

    Parkview Neighborhood Homeowners: ‘We Feel Betrayed’

    Adopted in 2001, The Parkview Plan was abandoned in 2014 — well before the struggling neighborhood regained its balance. Fourteen years ago, as part of a Redevelopment effort, City staff, along with some very smart, well-paid urban planners, put together a comprehensive revitalization plan for Parkview. They used data, surveys, interviews and brainstormed ideas with [...]

    A Response to ‘It is Time to Stop This Madness’

    My letter on the homeless situation in Redding at least brought the problem to the point of discussion, which is good. Obviously there is a problem for which a response is needed for the health of the Redding community and the homeless. The article regarding the Salt Lake solution was good and presented guidelines that [...]

    Menu Please: History, Food and Music at the French Gulch Hotel

    Compiling a list of all the owners and operators of the French Gulch Hotel would take more time and patience than Femme de Joie possesses, though possibly the Shasta Historical Society may have much of that information at their fingertips. The hotel will turn 130 next year and looks remarkably well for someone of its [...]

    Free Therapy # 42: ‘We Cannot Change Our Shadow Until We Accept and Embrace It’

    “There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection. To round itself out life…calls not for perfection but for completeness and for this the ‘thorn in the flesh’ is needed, the suffering of defects without which there is no progress and no ascent.” – Carl Jung My wife and I recently returned [...]
