Some towns have their Cheers Bar where everyone knows their name, but in Fair Oaks, we have our own old fashioned hardware store - Oaks Hardware.  It's definately the local hangout, and the only place to go to find that hard-to-find tool or screw-ball sized screw. Owner Dave Hill took over from h...

The Phoenix Field neighborhood of Fair Oaks is one of Fair Oak's finest. With nearly 500 homes, it's big enough to have it's own distinct personality, but small enough for neighbors to know each other.

Pigs have just flown, it froze in Hell, and the bear just pooped in the woods (oopps, wrong saying... sorry).  Anyway my life has been turned upside down, in a good way, by some hocus pokus stuff.

I turned 18 the summer of '69... the summer of Woodstock and the Moon Landing.  And I got to see both.  Sort of. I worked as a maid that summer at the Spring Lake Hotel, up in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York, in Parksville. Being a long blonde-haired California girl at a Jewish resort ...

Termite... dry rot... leaks... fungus... earth-to-wood contact.  Yuk.  Who wants to talk about this stuff?  Don't all hold your hands up at once.
