Why am I Still Waiting for This Movie??

July 11, 2014

A couple of years ago, I saw a movie trailer for “Oz Great and Powerful” and I was DYING to see it! It looked amazing and the color was unbelievable (in the trailer) and found out that it was coming out 8 MONTHS LATER!!!!! Why must they torture me so? Same with “50 Shades of… read more


Living in a Small Town

July 10, 2014

I just read a story this morning about a dispatcher in Marysville who took a 911 call and realized the caller was her husband and the reason he was calling was that her son had just choked on a metal washer….. scary stuff. He ended up clearing his airway and the boy was fine. Which… read more


The Best of Friends

July 8, 2014

It seems that most of us have someone to take care of us- if we’re lucky- and I am lucky to have two of the best friends ever. It’s been a tumultuous couple of years and if it were not for them, I have no idea how I could have stayed afloat. They love me… read more


How Did It All Go So Fast?

June 3, 2014

People tell you when you have kids, “Don’t blink. They’ll be all grown up before you know it.” While in the throes of the terrible twos as they were throwing themselves on the floor at the store and screaming at the top of their lungs, or telling me that a science project is due while… read more


Europe, Here I Come!

February 7, 2014

I had a conversation with my best friend just after Christmas about our bucket lists. Places we’d like to go, things we’d like to do- and hers was a trip to Europe with me. AND she is paying for a trip for us to go. At first I was hesitant because that is a HUGE… read more


New Year’s Resolutions

December 26, 2013

I am not one for making New Year’s resolutions. It seems like an expectation that is a little difficult to live up to. If it was too hard to make happen all year long, what’s so magical about the begging of the year that is going to make it any easier? I guess it’s all… read more


Eddie T. Elf

December 24, 2013

When my kids were little, we used to take a drive and look at all the Christmas lights lighting up nearby neighborhoods. We would ooh and ahhhh over them all and pick our favorite house. My co-worker Phil was working on a list of all the best places to go and asked if we’ve gone… read more


Merry Christmas Everyone!

December 24, 2013

Christmas is a crazy time of year. All the shopping and wrapping and baking and and and……. It’s easy to lose sight of what it’s all about. I know I’m guilty. That moment of clarity comes about the middle of the day Christmas eve when everything is “almost” done- or done to the best of… read more


School Has Started- Already~!

August 20, 2013

Didn’t school just end?! It’s time again and I think I’m ready. There was lots of fun to be had- but I’m ready to get back to the normalcy that the school year seems to bring with it. Everyone’s home around the same time, there’s homework time and even dinner is more regular (and more… read more


We’ll Miss You, John

August 1, 2013

This week lost an amazing man. His sudden death has sent shock waves through out little community and an outpouring of love and mourning for John Kane, who touched so many lives in the short time he was with us. He came on as an advertiser at KNCO soon after opening his restaurant, instantly making… read more


Busy Weekend!

July 15, 2013

This was the Airfest weekend and as always, it was AMAZING! I’ve been to both the hangar party/dinner/dance and the airshow itself for the last several years, and this year was, by far, the best! The scene for the dinner/dance was beautifully set- complete with an entire orchestra, planes on display and a hot air… read more


We’re Back ON!!

June 28, 2013

    Thanks for bearing with us during all this frustrating transmitter stuff! We are back on and shouldn’t have any more problems (fingers crossed!)


Travel Makes Me Appreciate Where I Live

June 12, 2013

I just went down to San Francisco to take a friend to have a procedure done at UCSF and the whole experience made me appreciate living in a small town. I was lucky enough to get into the city right after rush hour Monday night and drove onto Treasure Island just as the sun was… read more


The End of the School Year….YAY!!!!

May 31, 2013

I love this time of year! It starts to warm up- things start to slow down. For me, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Longer days and warmer nights…. spending the afternoons at the river and the evenings under the stars. Festivals & street fairs and sneaking away to Lake Tahoe for a… read more


Putting Things in Perspective

May 21, 2013

I am here at the radio station part time in the morning and looking for a job to fill the rest of my days and pay the bills. I went to another job interview yesterday and found that they were not planning to start anyone in the position until the end of June and went… read more


How DO They Do it??

May 20, 2013

Checking my facebook page for local birthday announcements, I saw a post from a woman who just opened a new business, she sits on a board or two, has two active kids, is volunteer mom of the year at school AND she clearly works out. I sit in awe at all she does and wonder… read more


Kids and Dating Choices

April 9, 2013

When my daughter first started dating I was REALLY worried about the choices she was making in boys. The first one had no respect for her, or anyone elseĀ for that matter, the second was clingy and needy and so was the third. It’s really hard to teach them the importance of healthy relationships when they’re… read more


Mother of a Licensed Driver……WHAT???

March 21, 2013

I just became the mother of a licensed driver and still, I’m wondering how that happened. It seems like just a few years ago when she was learning to walk! Most moms are freaking out at this point- but not me. My little girl has grown into this responsible little person with a level head… read more


Life is Good! It’s All About Perspective

February 6, 2013

It’s a beautiful, sun-shiny day in Grass Valley and I am thrilled to be alive! Sure, I’ve got this kid that has to be here, that kid that has to be there and dinner to make, a late meeting and a bill I have to get really creative about paying, but who wants to think… read more
