BBQ at Lost Mine Lake tonight

The Homeowner's Assn is launching their "BBQ at the Lake" tonight. They are encouraging your to bring your potluck item to the lake and mix it up with your neighbors. The coals will be it for your BBQ item, from 6PM till--????.
Sounds like fun. The park is in beautiful condition, in part thanks to the Americorp volunteers that cleaned it on clean up day, and Pam Herrenkohl's great organization skills.
Be sure to check the calendar on the website ( for all the fun activities planned here this year. The new board is trying out some new ideas, and they are doing it for YOU, so hoping you will give things a try. Lost Mine Lake is a great resource. Your $100 dollar membership to CSHA not only provides you with a great discount on propane, it pays the maintenance and insurance costs of the LM Lake. It also allows them to sponsor great events all year, so, please do your part for the community and JOIN!
If you've been watching a big group of Harley Riders go back and forth thru the shores, that the group of Ministers and friends that have an annual outing here in the shores. A residents donates his lake view house to them. Great group of guys.

Rain, rain go away

Still raining here, though the thunderstorms did not materialize. Usually at this time we are frolicking in the lake. Missing those days . .
THIS WEEKEND IS THE GOLD COUNTY SAILING REGATTA AT SCOTTS FLAT, starting 11am Sat, with 3 races, and 2 races on Sunday. Also a BBQ dinner Sat night on Hwy 20 side. Should be beautiful!
Nevada County Shelter on Mc Courtney desperately needs canned cat food. You should see those kitties light up when they get their wet food. If you can't make it out there and you'd like to donate, you can drop food inside my gate (15855 Banner Quaker Hill Rd, at corner of Pasquale by the Big Hill). I'll drop it off for you. Thanks. If you would rather give a check to help feed, I can drop that off too . . .
As I go on walks, I've been seeing new property owners visiting their new homes. Looks like the trend is people buying 2nd homes as vacation/weekenders, so our full time population is dwindling. That's all right, less traffic on the hill. Unfortunately, it means less money spent in town though, tough on the merchants. So, be sure to shop local! The farmers markets are back in swing, even with the rain. My favorite is North Star House. I can spend hours there. It's on Old Auburn Rd. Take a left at gate #3 by fairgrounds on Mc Courtney. The house was designed by Julia Morgan, you know, the one who designed Hearst Castle. It is slowly and lovingly being restored. Their entertainment for this years concert is Aaron Neville. Awesome!
