Good Evening Friends!
Before we get into the nuts and bolts of the newsletter, we wanted to remind you that we will be off Sunday the 23rd. Patti is taking me away this weekend to celebrate my 65th birthday. See you on Tuesday!
I wanted to thank everyone who read and clapped for my story about Tony Bourdain on Medium. It’s been a year since his death, and the story covered a time long ago when we worked together. If you haven’t read it, check it out now, here.
Over the years, both Patti and I have had friends who attempted suicide as well as ones that succeeded like Tony. Both of us have had our issues with depression and suicide attempts, but there’s always been a friend or loved one who helped.
We want everyone to know that as bad as it gets sometimes, and it will you need to know there are people out there that will help. Whether it’s a friend, a loved one, or some 800 number there is help. Don’t be afraid to talk to someone.
Here is the National Suicide Prevention Hotline for you or someone you know who may need it. 1-800-273-8255
Have you checked out our podcast It’s All Mishegoss
(click the name) lately? Take a minute when you’re driving, the best time to listen and tune in. The show runs between 6-8 minutes, and you can even leave a voice message no matter what platform you use.
Here’s what’s happening:
- Woman Dies While Climbing in Yosemite
- A 10-Year-Old Climb El Capitan
- Juneteenth: Slavery’s impact on ‘soul of America’
- Redondo Beach: Among Best Cities
- A&W Turns 100
That should give you an idea of what’s in store for you in tonight’s edition of California Mishegoss.
Now it’s your turn. Kick off your shoes, grab your favorite drink, & snack, kick back, and enjoy your evening read. See you next Tuesday Friends!
Mark & Patti
