Winter's Coming by mary elizabeth

It’s beginning to look a lot like winter.  First of all, we have quite a storm system blowing through Fort Bragg right now.  It’s very wet and although we have sunny skies in between storms, the down pours and winds themselves are quite impressive.  If you’re headed our way, be sure and check the roads [...]

To Be Organic by kristin

Listening to the recent controversy surrounding an NPR story about organics, I was amazed that the "scientific findings" in this particular study seemed to refute the idea that buying organic produce makes a difference to health.  And this in spite of a nationwide movement of people who are increasingly choosing farmer's markets and locally grown [...]

Good Day Sunshine by kristin

We had some unusually chilly weather here for the first few days of September, but today the sun came out and it is warm and mild, with nary a wind (other than a gentle breeze from the ocean). More like it! Fall is always just gorgeous here on the Mendocino coast - by far the [...]

New You by kristin

I was in a local shop today and the proprietor asked me how things were going at Living Light. "Busy, Busy" I said, and she said "That's good - keeps you off the streets." Never truer than this weekend, which is not only the umpteenth annual Paul Bunyan Days celebration here in Fort Bragg, but [...]
