The Salton Sea is a Mix of Joy and Sadness

Before yesterday, I had never visited the Salton Sea in southern California, although I felt like I knew much about it. My late husband used to talk about the Salton Sea. Apparently he knew people who had bought homes in the desert under the high pressure sales that happened in the 1950s and 1960s in the area. He deemed it the worst real estate investment ever.

He was not an environmentalist nor did he much care for environmental issues and I shudder to think what he would have thought about climate change. Well he probably would have found a way to monetize it, LOL.We were pretty much opposites.

I tend to lean more toward supporting environmental issues than most people. You can read more about the sad fate of the Salton Sea in my personal blog today at this link: A Visit to the Salton Sea.

Who Goes Out for a Good Steak Anymore?

Except for the steak dinner a friend invited me to in Kona a while back, I have not readily thought of going out for a steak. It used to be a craving but I have lessened my intake of red meat for years. Not on purpose, it just sort of happened. For… more

How Will Climate Change Affect Your Children?

Honestly, I know a lot of people who don't give a hoot about climate change because they a) won't be around when the world is destroyed, and b) they don't really understand it. They think oh, it's three degrees hotter, I can live with that. But… more
Great Place to Walk 2 Level Miles in Kona

We spotted a couple of guys running along the Maka'eo Walking Path in Kona but at the time of day we were there (mid-afternoon), it was pretty quiet. Not a soul gardening. Not a soul relaxing under the Australian Fire Tree to read a book. Nobody… more
