Plum tasty

I bought a box of plums from someone at work who has a small orchard out in Palisade. She didn’t know what kind of plums they are, but brought in a box for people to sample. They seemed to get sweeter the longer they sat and they were pretty tasty, so I figured it would be fun to try … more

What's in a Word

Surfers’ paradise

For a while in the '80s I lived in Hermosa Beach, California, just 31 miles away from Malibu. I enjoyed Hermosa Beach so much that I never spent any time in Malibu; now, of course, I wish I had. Linguists think that the name for this hip seaside town, which is highly popular with … more

Green Rush

All of a sudden spring has finally arrived here in the mountains. Unlike years past where it seeped in a tepid and steady trickle, it fairly exploded on the scene. A super intense, bright, neon, fresh green is saturating the earth. Now snow lies only above … more
