Fido & Me - Dinner Party!

January 25, 2013

 

“Whatcha makin’ up there?” Fido wanted to know.

The Beeg Boy lay underfoot, as is usual when I’m in the kitchen. He’s always interested in what is on the chopping block.

“I’m chopping stuff for tonight’s dinner party.”

“A DINNER PARTY? Hey hey hey hey! I love-love-love dinner parties!”

“Me too, Fido. A great dinner for others is a gift—an act of love. Chef Marc says that, and I totally agree with him.”

Regarding short-term single-family rentals, Sandy Hogan writes, “A detailed inventory of what we have would therefore be the first step...”

Misrepresentation

January 25, 2013

 

I have been very naive in believing that the National Rifle Association represented gun owners of America in protection of the Second Amendment.

The NRA represents the manufacturers of weapons of mass destruction, not only in the United States, but also in the world.

‘One Day in Yosemite’

Filmmaker Bumgardner completes ambitious video

Last June 26 was not a particularly unusual day in Yosemite National Park. It was a bit crowded in the Valley and along the Tioga Road features, but it was not weekend heavy.

January 25, 2013

 

More snow to come, but forecast models can’t seem to agree on how much

The Mammoth area might receive another foot or more of snow over the highest elevations by Monday, according to weather forecasters.

Then again, it might not.
