Inside Winter Fun in Sonoma County Indoor Recreation in Sonoma County
January 1, 2013

By Aleta Copestakes

This is my first winter back in California in 7 years, and I must admit that I’m really enjoying the sunshine and warm-ish weather (compared to Colorado, where I had been hiding out all that time). Winters are mild here, rainy days are broken up by sunshine and the birds never stop singing, the temperature rarely gets below freezing and plants sprout new life. I’ve only worn my winter coat a handful of times, and I have been stubborn to put away my flip-flops.

My point behind all this is that winter is no reason to stop being active. There are so many activities to enjoy year-round, even when it’s pouring rain outside. And though I would encourage you to continue enjoying our beautiful outdoors, there are tons of indoor activities to try as well.

February 18, 2017
When Greg Jacobs worked in the Sonoma County District Attorney's office, he was on a committee that reviewed all child deaths in the county every month. There were too many drownings in bathtubs, swimming pools, Lake Sonoma and the Russian River. All were preventable.  Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for kids 14 and under, nationally and worldwide. And now pediatricians are recommending swim lessons for one-year-olds.

Love, Chocolate and Parenting Fails Love, Chocolate and Parenting Fails

In my family, the physical embodiment of love is chocolate. I didn’t mean for this to happen. I know all about the psychological damage done when food is used as reward and punishment. There were extenuating circumstances, I swear!

February 1, 2017
by Zoe Tummillo
Watching the evening news (on three channels that I use to average things out and apply filters), suddenly, right in front of my eyes was a self-defined, female “millennial!” At first glance, she seemed the embodiment of everything I, and a large group of now old bags, fought tooth and nail for in the 60’s and 70’s! Self confident, in-your-face motivated, unabashedly outspoken...

(Please. Not again...) It’s like an Off-and-On switch, to my way of thinking, with no handy electrician to modify, moderate or fix. Yet, all the seasonal fuss and clamor and songs and cards and the Salvation Army bell-ringers wishing you a Merry Christmas, etc., kind of forces the concept into your consciousness: Be hopeful! A New Year looms!
