Somehow the three things in the title of this blog post fit together. I'm just not sure exactly how. Like a perfectly completed jigsaw puzzle? Like a random pile of old car parts in a junkyard? Like pants and a...

We live in strange times. They got a bit stranger for me yesterday, after I wrote a post on my Salem Political Snark blog, "Salem should have another Women's March, not a Womxn's March." Among other things, I talked about...

I just came across a LA Weekly story, "A 1986 Murder Cold Case in the Mojave Desert is Finally Unraveling," about the gruesome killing of two members of an Indian spiritual organization that I used to belong to, Radha Soami...

OK, I get what this guy is saying in "Donald Trump, Accidental Buddhist." Let's just stress the accidental. Have a read on the New York Times site. Or, the piece is short, so I've shared it below. Donald Trump, Accidental...

When he’s not cooking, Chef Bedard is playing outside: foraging, fishing, crabbing and agate hunting. There’s another benefit to living life more simply on the Oregon Coast, especially during the winter, when it’s less crowded. The post

I'm hugely enjoying Kurt Andersen's book about how our country became the world's #1 purveyor of kookiness. "Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire" is filled with right-on observations. Andersen chronicles our nation's love affair with fantasy from 1517 up to the...

This year we decided to cut down our own Christmas tree — it was so much fun — and now it will be an annual tradition. The process was very simple. We purchased a National Forest tree tag for five dollars at Powder House Ski & Snowboard in Bend. My husband, Mitchell, purchased a bow saw to cut the tree, then all
