Of course, some people have great luck with farming, but I don’t believe anyone will tell you it’s an easy life. Every child in my mother’s family did farm chores. The youngest at age three fed the chickens and hunted for eggs. The oldest helped their father feed the cows and do the daily milking. My mother recalls a year they planted eight sacks of potatoes and only grew eight sacks of potatoes! That was a hunger year. My grandmother Alice Baker worked as a sharecropper at the age of 12 with her four siblings. When her children were small on the Homestead, she taught them not to greedily fill their stomachs. She led them in saying grace and leaving food so that the whole family would get enough to eat. In other words, eat to live not live to eat. So, I congratulate Cotati for their vision and follow-through on Veronda-Falletti Ranch.

Go to any Sonoma County Library Reception Desk to request an updated California Driver Handbook. English as a second language learners will find tutors and a free monthly news bulletin with current events. Minus the fake news. Last but not least, I love the used book sales our Friends of the Libraries run. Cotati and Rohnert Park book hounds haunt the bookshop resale shop. Guilty of buying books I already have, in order to gift them to my writer and reading pals.
