Once Upon A Brew Pub – North Coast Brewing Co.

I have always found the rugged beauty of the northern California coast both peaceful and awe-inspiring. Once a year I have a job in Manchester, just south of Fort Bragg, CA. Fort Bragg is home to North Coast Brewing Company, which has some absolutely wonderful brews. So of course it is imperative that I stop [...]

Wrinkly in Ashland; Intergalactic Grandparenting

It all came on so suddenly. Sofia lost all her baby incisors at about the same time she graduated to reading chapter books. She traded in her hot pink organdy tutu for a wardrobe of pima jerseys in brooding purples. Her social insouciance gave way to a new anxiety about 3rd grade classroom cliques. Toads [...]

There’s a little bit of Scotland tucked away in Tehama County.
