It is sooo Good to have Orien home and to have had Thanksgiving together with a lovely sweet crowd of people. My favorite part was the "friends grace" that brought out what many were most grateful for.
Michael's been working on our roof. He said to explain that the little veggie vw didn't have a fuel clog but it was really an air leak in the fuel filter. So there.
Michael took this photo of us first generation Riparians saying hi to one of the former foster children who is now a mom herself and living in Iowa.
I just did a radio show with my dear Laurel Avalon on KZFR about the Breast Cancer and Early Exposures Conference I went to last week. There was so much important information that I started to stumble all over the topic. For now I'd say, keep your children lean, stay away from manufactured items that you don't know the ingredients of, have an excellent vacuum cleaner and fight like hell to get rid of the "chemicals of concern" while we still can, to bring back the health of wildlife, water, air and the earth. There is a 2012 looming that won't have such special effects... just a loss of health and lots of cancer and diseases. Keep Obama honest with your voice though... he will listen to science so this is THE time.
This is an orchard in Concow. The humans are still reeling from the forest fire that took out so many homes a year and a half ago but this little place, with bear piles of apple poop dotting the orchard... what a wonderful place after a rain!
Amy Goodman came to Chico last week. Here she is with wonderful body worker and friend, Weezie, in the lobby of the El Rey. If you look at the wealth of human capital, this tiny woman is a giant and jewell among us. Her integrity and hard work has allowed a venue for honest, in-depth reporting that exists nowhere else in the U.S. She is forging the way to getting the truth out and the niche she created is being widened by other alternative media. She came to fundraise for community radio KZFR and took nothing for herself but some book sales. Her new book is Breaking the Sound Barrier. Check it out!
I am happy to be in full Thanksgiving mode. Thank filled and still appreciating being able to put my photos and thoughts up here on the google blog. Thanks googlelandia.
