    The only thing better than beating Belgium would be...

    Last updated 3 years ago

    You may have World Cup glory on your brain but your body is thinking about what you'll do after the game is over.

    Celebrate with a deeply satisfying plunge into a cold river!

    It is officially summer time and triple-digit temperatures abound so it's time to seek a cool place to swim. We've got so many great rivers running down from the Sierra Mountains - with names that trace our history - American, Mokelumne, Tuolumne, Stanislaus, Merced, Kern - get out a map, put your finger down and get out of town!

    You have a couple more weeks of decent flow volumes before the drought really slows things down. Go find a shade tree, rope swing and sandy beach!

    Two last words - be careful!

    Visit a farm this weekend!

    Last updated 3 years ago

    The weather is about to turn HOT and while that may have already happened in your area, it's still a great time to go visit a farm and pick some fruit!

    The central valley and coastal mountain farms are officially in high gear so you can visit this website to find a destination for the fuit you want. There is nothing better than the taste of summer fruit on the day it was picked!

    Our farming economy and ecosystem is healthier when we become consumers who buy directly from the source (at least occasionally). You can grab your kids, fill a picnic basket and take a Saturday drive in search of fresh air, sunshine and something sweet for dessert! You can even take the easy way out and just go to the farm stands - either way you will get some super-fresh fruit. And by the way, the corn is coming in and it is INCREDIBLE!

    Plan your trip with a bonus - look for a state park nearby where you can jump in a lake or river to cool off after lunch. The State of California has award-winning parks where you can relax, picnic and in some cases, jump in the water.

    Sunscreen. Towels. Cold drinks. Picnic basket. Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezie!

    Warm Dry Weather and Wind - Do You Have Your Wildfire Prevention Measures Up To Date?

    Last updated 3 years ago

    It won't be long before we see the summer's first major wildfire. Temperatures are climbing, humidity is low and some areas are expecting winds above 30 mph.

    This is a recipe for a problem that we can all take steps to prevent.

    Make a point to carefully review your fire safety plan this weekend. Clear brush and debris away from your home and any other structures on your property. Make certain that you keep the area around your propane tank free of any combustible materials. Clear any pine needles or leaves off your roof and out of your gutters. Talk to your family and neighbors about what you'll do if a fire threatens your area.

    While you are thinking about fire safety, your local volunteer fire department could probably use a thoughtful donation. A well-trained and fully-equipped VFD is critical in a long, hot and dry summer so drop off a check at the station when you are in the area.

    Only you can prevent wildfires...

    Mourning Our Loss in San Diego

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Tony Gwynn passed away earlier this week and our team in Ramona erected a small memorial in his honor.

    He set many standards for baseball, sports and life in general. We'll never forget his amazing swing, infectious laugh or generosity. He gave everyone who watched him play a great example of how to compete while smiling.

    Springtime Fun in Amador County - It's the Italian Picnic and Parade in Sutter Creek

    Last updated 3 years ago

    The longer and warmer days of June have arrived in the Sierra foothills. We see these days as the beginning of a 100 day stretch of blue skies, high temperatures and summer fun.

    In Sutter Creek, the Italian Benevolent Society marks the first weekend in June with their annual Italian Picnic & Parade. It's a three day celebration of the Italian heritage that brought about the formation of the society 129 years ago in support of the Italian gold miners in the area.

    You might guess that when the Italian community throws a festival it naturally becomes a popular destination for exceptional food. The Sutter Creek area is also well regarded for their production of quality wines and olive oil. Throw in live music, carnival rides and great weather and you have a terrific event! You can learn more about the Italian Benelovent Society by visiting their website here.

    We love parades and we're easily talked into participating in festivals. If you have a great event coming up in your town let us know about it!
