  • Morro Bay Leather Shop Owner Does Demonstration

  • Wellness: Your back will love this savings plan

    I have a picture of change that I was carrying in my purse. It doesn’t look like much but believe it or not, it weighed 2 pounds! When my purse feels like it is full of rocks, it is good reminder to empty my change purse. Today I decided to weigh the change just out of curiosity and was astonished to see how much it weighed. I kept the quarters (you always need parking money) and put the rest in an old water jug I keep spare change in. Now I make it a regular practice to empty the change out of my purse which is better for my back.

‘Calendar Girls’ Opening 2019 Season

“Calendar Girls” by Tim Firth, tells the true story of a group of somewhat long-in-the-tooth British matrons who pose for a “girly” calendar. Their goal is to raise money for a hospital bench dedicated to Annie’s recently deceased husband. Previous calendar efforts by their women’s group, with photos of churches and bridges, have been poor sellers, so they decide to spice it up a bit, and their hilarious efforts meet with surprising success.

Skateboarding Across America — Part 2

They did it in 1976 and again in 1984 prompted on by Morro Bay Skateboard Museum owner, Jack Smith who just last month, to celebrate his 62nd birthday, staked out 62 good miles and off he went once again — skateboarding the byways of Central California. The 1976 trip across the country was the first and resulted in getting the skateboard Smith used a permanent spot at the Smithsonian Institute, but I get ahead of myself with the story.
