Good Morning! It’s Sunday, July 8th and time for more California Mishegoss.
We’re still working on getting this new newsletter all about California just right. It takes time and to be honest it’s tough to find stories without hate, politics, racism, and so much more we don’t want to cover to post.
We’ll keep working at it and we hope you’ll hang in there with us as we make this newsletter better? If you would like to get involved in what we’re building just send us some links to stories you find interesting about California. Thanks! 
Inside this issue:
Old Hollywood Lives
Almond Harvest
Food & Wine in Healdsburg
Food Allergies
and more…
Have a great week and see you on Tuesday evening!
Be Well,
Mark & Patti
