I have been to many places in the wilderness that have experienced wildfires before and, in some areas, like Yellowstone National Park, for example, fires are sometimes necessary to restore balance and produce seeds to grow more trees. That is not really the case in Anderson, California, where I ...

Some people have this skewed impression of me, like Eva Gabor in Green Acres, when I stay at places out of my element, but you know what? I have hiking shoes. I dress appropriately, mostly. It's a real treat to live like somebody else and not myself. I live with myself and my ways of doing things...

Remember Casey Kasem, geez who named that guy, and his Top 40 list? When I was a kid, I would take the bus from south Minneapolis to downtown, 7th and Nicollet, and go to Dayton's to buy the top 45 record of the week.
