The Liver Is Evil and Must Be Punished

Brew Day on the homestead!


Christmas Berries

A native California plant that brightens up the landscape in the winter months.  Also known as Toyon.  You can eat it, too, and it’s supposed to be good in apple pie.

Mmmmm.  Pie.

Dead in Winter

Last year we had a lot of rain in California where I live.  This winter, none that I can recall.  The weeds – here, wild mustard – grew to enormous heights because of all the rain.  We might get rain tonight.  The fact is, these dried weeds are what made the Thomas Fire so fierce – a lot of dead growth left over from a wet winter a year ago.
