Mistress of the Mix: Kool Cars

For the last couple of weeks, this car has been haunting me. It’s a pink and black 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner (I know, because I looked it up), with the most amazing paint job I’ve ever seen. And this thing, it seems, has been following me around town. Maybe you’ve noticed it. I mean, maybe it’s [...]

Just Sayin’: Children! What Good Are They, Anyway?

As I watch the news and just live life day to day, I notice that regardless of the country, ethnicity, social strata or economic development, children are pretty much welcomed into this world with unmitigated joy. Then life happens. What is it about the giving of life to another soul that elicits warmth and joy [...]

Redding Council Gets First Look at Proposed 1,000-foot Slip ‘N Slide Project; Votes to Alter City’s Pot Garden Ordinance; Tips Cap to Bob Blankenship

A 1,000-foot-long slip-and-slide requiring 15,000 gallons of water. On Placer Street between Orange and Chestnut streets. In the middle of July. In the middle of a withering drought. Piece of cake, according to the two young Redding men who pitched the idea to the Redding City Council on Tuesday. Sure, it will raise some eyebrows, [...]

Redding: Your Frog is Cooked

If I had a dollar for every word A News Cafe.com has published about the homeless, transients, street people, and homeless encampment clean-ups, I’d be an extremely wealthy, retired woman living in my Waikiki beach house, sipping sidecars and writing my screenplay.

Free Therapy # 60: There is no Other

On rare occasions in my life, I’ve suffered momentary break-downs when sudden waves of sorrow would sweep over me in a storm of tears that wrenched up out of me in sobbing pleas and prayers; petitions to some unknown force for answers that never came.

Scottish Food-To-Go

There are loads of things I miss about the USA, and near the top of the list are the wonderful restaurants I had practically at my doorstep – and the fast food chains I furtively visited in the dark hours of night, bearing away my prizes, giggling madly while running up my apartment steps for [...]

Matt’s Chats: Meet the Other Grigsby – Brother Brian

Meet Brian Grigsby.  Full disclosure: he’s my much older fraternal twin brother (by 3 minutes).  Brian is a teacher at Shasta High School and the 2014 recipient of the National Space Club Explorer’s Award and has hit me in the head with a rock more than once, although not recently (as far as I know).  [...]

The Valley of Fear – California, Cannabis and Killing the American Dream

Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. –1 John 4:20 I like to listen to the radio when I work in the garage. Where I live the [...]
