Looking for Little Free Libraries

We were in Rogue River, Oregon (a small town between Medford and Grants Pass) on Memorial Day weekend. This little Free Library and home were well decorated. Do you have a little free library near you? The following was originally,  posted in November 2015 In my travels and in walking around town, I have found…

Need a Sunny Movie?

If your days are full of rain, maybe you could use a “Sunny” movie. Any surfing movie or a National Lampoon Vacation movie could work. I thought I had watched all surfer movies – fiction and non-fiction, but SurferToday has a list with movies I haven’t seen. Some of them do look like the darker…
