Is that a bear in my trash can?

The leaves have fallen and we are getting ready to change the clocks back. That means the holiday season is upon us but that is not what this post is about. 


Fall brings an increased amount of bear activity. Yes, friends, those pesky bruins are doing their best to fatten up for the winter.

Red October- the new normal in California?

Once again wildland fires are raging in California. While Public Safety Personnel struggle to contain and fight the menace, those affected by the disasters are asking questions.

Why do these terrible conflagrations continue to occur every year? Why do the fires seem to get bigger and cause more destruction?

Why can't we stop them?

The NHL 2019-2020 season has begun and the San Jose Sharks are wishing for a better start.

Okay, so the team has struggled in the first two weeks, only winning one of five games. 


Are we worried? No, not really. Id rather boys in teal have a rough stretch now than later in the season.
