Barbara Kruger’s Contribution

Amazing art mural created by Barbara Kruger, at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. I had a moving experience reading people’s responses to society’s most important questions.

July 2015

You have moved beyond a problem, Moonchild.

It is over. You are safe.
Yet for some reason you may still be dwelling in the place of fear and
frustration that you were in before your problem was solved. By allowing yourself to go over and over negative thoughts, and by worrying about a possible recurrence of a problem, you are giving that problem more power.

There is no need to revisit what you have already conquered.

There is no reason to fear it will happen again.

It won’t.



Happy Birthday, to me.

Fresno-Madera craft beer festival features 100-plus brews

The Fresno Bee

May 7, 2015

Mt. Whitney Xtra Pale Ale from Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company will be one of many beers poured by 45 breweries at the Fresno-Madera Craft Beer Festival.

 It is craft beer festival season in the Valley and the next chance to sample all kinds of beer is Saturday, May 9, at the Fresno-Madera Craft Beer Festival.

This one is at  ApCal Wine Tasting & Events Center at 32749 Avenue 7, Madera, just north of Fresno, from 2-6 p.m.

About 45 breweries will be serving more than 100 craft beers. A full list of breweries participating is online and includes Dust Bowl Brewing, Hangar 24, Clown Shoes Brewing and Lagunitas. At least five Valley breweries will be there, too.

Organizers say one thing that makes this craft beer festival different is the setting. No parking lot or blocked off street here, but a green expanse with a big leafy oak tree that’s surrounded by vineyards.

Bands Night Heat and The Wild Hare will provide live music.

Tickets cost $45 at the gate, $35 in advance online at Designated drivers who will not be drinking cost $10.

“It’s going to be a packed house,” says ApCal owner Darren Schmall. “We’ll actually probably have to cut off ticket sales at the gate.”

Buy tickets online to be sure to get in. The price includes a glass, unlimited samples, soda, juice and water.

Food will be available for purchase from Mattie’s Pizza, The Smoke Joint and the Mediterranean Grill.

Sober driver service will be provided by Uber., (559) 441-6431 or  @BethanyClough on Twitter.

Las Vegas Moth Season


MiLB Food

This season, the competition is fierce. Many Minor League baseball parks are offering deep-fried classics and every ballpark is trying to one-up each other. The result is us getting to enjoy some really good (bad) food like Fried Chicken & Waffles, Deep Fried Nutella and Pretzel Breaded Italian Sausage. IMG_20150418_123236
