Don't Forget to Vote June 5th, 2018.

Proposition 14 did two things to our Primaries starting in 2011.

One, is getting more well known: The top two vote getters for each office, are the only ones to get on the ballot in the November General Election, regardless of party.
The other, is less understood: ANYONE CAN VOTE FOR ANY CANDIDATE REGARDLESS OF THEIR PARTY REGISTRATION. THEY JUST HAVE TO BE REGISTERED TO VOTE!

What does this mean? REPUBLICANS, INDEPENDENTS, LIBERTARIANS, DEMOCRATS, GREEN PARTY, etc. can all show up ON JUNE 5TH 2018.

I hope this is not an inappropriate link. I think it is important for any one that lives in California to read this, Republican or Democrat.

nocagastax.com This has been on public radio and in several newspapers.

In order to get the initiative on the November 2018 Ballot Travis Allen needs 365,880 valid CA signatures to qualify the Repeal.

Please check out the web site and pass it on. I'm sure you do not want to see your registration fees going up or paying more for gas or diesel. This should have been voted on by the people in the first place. Unfortunately there is no big money backers so we the people need to help.

In this photo you can still see the parking lot to the boat ramp. The emergency spillway was running over the top.

This next photo shows the parking lot under water and the hole that caused the town of Oroville and lower areas around us to be evacuated.

Not sure when the evacuation order is going to be lifted. Most businesses in Oroville are closed as well as all the schools. They evacuated all the prisoners out of the county jail to Alameda County because the jail is in direct line with the river.

Well my 19 year old grandson, Jakob, and 18 year old granddaughter, Bayley, were here at 7 AM this morning to help me work in the pond. We started at 7:30, took a break to eat something at 10:30 and back to work at 11:15. We worked another two hours and this it what it looks like now.

Well this is what I did this morning after riding my recumbent bike, my hooping and morning chores. I started around 8 am and quit at 9:30 am. I took a before photo and an after photo. It may not look like I did much but my body is telling me I did. I think I have about 4 or 5 mores hours of cutting out tules and pulling weeds out of the water before I'm done. I also took a photo showing the dock and tules. I have to cut half of these darn things out before they take over the pond again. Never ending job!!!!

Before

After

Still left to do.

Very beautiful day here today. So glad for the cool down, we are having two cords of wood delivered tomorrow so it will be cooler while stacking it. Can you believe we are already getting ready for winter and summer has just begun. Will be getting my cardio in on the wood stacking!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Thanks for the link. I live in Mendocino County so makes sense for me to start with our water agency.

House color sounds good. Good that it's cooler. Change is so refreshing now and again.

Take care,

Hi Mel,

Check this site out, it is for Butte County but you should be able to get enough information you can find the information for your basin/area.

www.buttecounty.net/waterresourcecon
se
rvation/SustainableGroundwaterManageR>mentAct.aspx


Once you get to the website click on SGMA Brochure.

I know the farmers here in Butte County are pretty upset with this. Anyone with a well really needs to be informed.

I am doing well. Still plugging away at my weeds. We painted our house in May and it went from a colonial blue to an ostridge egg color with bright white trim. I'm still getting used to it but I love it because it looks so nice and clean and actually keeps the house cooler.

My classmates and I went to the "High Hand Nursery" in Loomis for lunch yesterday. Funny, you would not think a Nursery would have a restaurant but they do and you need reservations. We had a nice lunch and my one girlfriend bought me some lantana and verbena to plant for my birthday present. She was also thanking me for doing her family tree for her and helping her research her family.

I did two 5K walks before my back got bad a few years ago. Sometimes it bothers me to walk that long but most of the time I'm okay. I still do the treadmill and elliptical at the gym.

Happy to hear from you,
Gretchen

Long Time No See, Gretchen! I am back to SP after an absence though and participating in a walk/jog challenge. I only have a week to go on this challenge before I do the 5K Walk/Jog race. It feels good to experience this old bod of 75 yrs. beginning to actually jog a few minutes at a time and getting more and more comfortable with it.

I imagine you learned a lot at that meeting. Did they give out any good book titles and/or website urls as resources? I would be VERY interested.

For a while I was getting an email digest of Calif. water news and events that I think is thorough but doesn't mean to take positions of its own on anything it reports. The name, if I recall right was MAVEN'S NOTEBOOK-Water News. I finally unsubscribed one day when I was frustrated with so many emails in my inbox. But I may re-subscribe as I think we should all get as informed as possible. We are on a private well but our neighbors recently dug their well down way way deeper and I feel concerned for what that is going to do to our water supply as things get worse.

Hope you've been doing and feeling well,

Mel

I am going to attend a meeting this morning on the "Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA)" that our great Governor Jerry Brown signed into legislature in 2014. This effects rural areas as well as farmers that get their water from wells. From what I understand the State is trying to say they own our water. Guess I will become more informed after this meeting.

Hi Mel,

Well after being sick since the Wednesday before Christmas for almost 4 weeks I am back going to the gym. I have decided to try going every other day, not just Mon, Wed, Fri. The days I don't go to the gym I am doing Go4Life exercises. My muscles are a little sore but that is just temporary.

My massage therapist had to reschedule my yesterday morning appointment because she had two inches of snow at her house and she is at only 2200 feet. It was pretty cold here yesterday.

I'm looking forward to getting out in the yard this coming weekend. I have a lot of trimming to do and want to get a start on my spring weed control.

We have enjoyed the rain and hope we get al least another 10 inches before summer gets here.

Hi to you too, Gretchen. Wonder where all your Nor-Cal Sparker friends are hiding out? lol

I'm on my way out the door for a walk while the sun is brightly shining. Have been walking every day that it isn't raining and lately have been walking an hour and a half whereas I was just walking an hour there for quite a while. Just needed to push myself and also not keep thinking about all I have to do when I get back home.

Loving this sunshine!!!

I have not been to the gym in over a month now. Had this nasty cold and cough and since before Christmas and finally broke down and went to the doctor. He put both me and Alvin on the Z pack and we are starting to feel better. Cough is almost gone.

We have been enjoying the football playoffs even though both of our teams are not in them. Alvin is the 49ers and I am Dallas. I guess you could say we are die hard fans.

Hope everyone is well and staying healthy.

Time has gotten away from me as far as being on SP much in December.

I am still walking as many days as I can though, and sometimes even in the cold drizzle that's been coming down. However, some days it's just too rainy to take my pooch out for even 15 minutes. So... doing the indoor bike more lately but that doesn't help her, poor baby.

Need to recommit to more yoga and other body strengthening exercise.

Merry Christmas to you and yr family. emoticon (assuming you do Christmas?)

Walked from the Ford dealership after dropping off my car to the gym, from the gym to my eye doctor's appointment and from the eye doctor back to pick up my car. 10,371 steps so far today and it is only 12:49PM. emoticon

Everything was great for Thanksgiving but I can't seem to stop eating everything in sight!

What happened to all that good self control I thought I had? lol

I might have to do something drastic for a couple of days to get back on track.

Hope things are well with you.

Hi Mel, Congats on the 5% team challenge. Having to commit to daily posts does take a lot of time. Just trying to keep the Nor-Cal Sparkers and California Natives teams alive is time consuming enough for me. I am team leader for both so I feel guilty if I don't at least post to the team wall and at least one message board.

My holiday is shaping up well. My daughter Gail, her husband Dave and my grandchildren Jakob and Bayley will be here for dinner. I usually do the cooking because they have an hour and half drive to get here. Dave and Gail usually do the clean up. We eat around 12:30/1:00 so they can be on the road home before dark. If the weather is nice we go down to their place in Dixon for Christmas.

Hopefully we will get a little more rain out of the system tomorrow than they are predicting. We have enjoyed what we have received and so has all of our trees.

Well got to go because I have pomegranates to get ready for the freezer.

Have a great Thanksgiving. emoticon

Hi Gretchen, I am finally finished with the 5% team challenge. I was successful and it was fun but seemed time consuming for some reason keeping up with the daily posts. I might not sign up for the next one.

How is your holiday shaping up? Will the daughter and her family come for dinner?

Ours will be at our house but everyone will bring dishes to share so I won't be doing all the cooking myself. We will be about fourteen around the table. Not too hard.

Got our burn piles burned today. Should have had some marshmallows to roast while we were watching the fire.
