My front porch in Old Town Eureka is known as The Sunny Side. Southern exposure, protected from the wind, it is an ideal place to sit and play old timey tunes and watch the parade go by.

The Delta Nationals And Gator Beat

At the Eureka Municipal Auditorium. Gator Beat is a wonderful Zydeco band from San Francisco, followed by Humboldt's own Delta Nationals it was a great line up. As you can see Ross Rowley was especially brilliant on bass.

Joseph Mellett, CPA

Joe has my vote for Humboldt County Auditor-Controller. I've known him about ten years and know him to be a great guy and a dedicated Deputy Auditor-Controller.

Google's Broken Promises

My Google Pages are gone. I no longer have web sites hosted by Pages in my Google Apps accounts. Note that the log in page says "Don't worry about hosting, we'll host your site for you". Yeah, right.

Old Plymouth

A friend in high school had a blue car like this. My old '58 Mercedes 220 S reminded me of an old Plymouth.
