Do I Have To Have A Baby Shower?

By Marga, published on Jul 10, 2010

A couple of Yogi Berra's teammates on the Yankees ball club swear that one night the stocky catcher was horrified to see a baby toppling off the roof of a cottage across the way from him. Yogi dashed over and made a miraculous catch - but then force of habit proved too much for him. He straightened up and neatly threw the baby to second base.

Baby caught and just fine. Babies are resilient. Since my good friends Jim and Morgan Olson had waited to have children, in honor of his paternal ancestors, Jr, known as Ken Olson, was not getting any circumcision. Circumcision has gotta hurt. Circumcision... (more)

Mrs Olson's Birthday Dance

By Marga, published on Mar 4, 2010

I first met my good friends Jim and Morgan Olson in July 1996. In April 1997 Jim Olson introduced us to his wife’s annual birthday present, Morgan’s Birthday Dance. Each of their Fountainheads had a large dance floor with mirrors, high ceilings, was sound-balanced, and had disco and mood lights so it was held there or occasionally at a larger floor although the attendance was till kept small. Twenty-four people max at Fountainhead or thirty if elsewhere. Jim and Morgan also had the hipist music selection. Selection, not collection, Jim Olson pointed out. Whether it was jazz, classical or here,... (more)

Hey, Can We Really Do That With Fountainhead?

By Marga, published on Feb 7, 2010

I enjoy a nice home. However, they are far and few between. Oh, there are houses. Plenty of houses. Many houses are ticky tacky houses. These houses are ubiquitous houses. These houses are boring and too often not even minimally functional. There’s something very special about a home that is elegant, comfortable, tasteful, textured, unique, charming, dynamic, functional, and organic. Fountainhead is such a home and it is an intense study of a home that is technically sound. You do not judge such a work by technical standards alone though. The emotion and sheer artistry displayed in Fountainhead... (more)

Reno AAA: Where Our Members Don't Come First

By Marga, published on Jul 6, 2009

Recently I went to renew my 37-year membership with AAA. I had not received a renewal notice. I went to the Reno AT&T phone book but was unable to find any listing for AAA. I called the 800 number on my AAA membership card, 800-222-4357. I got a Don, not allowed to give last name or employee number. Don told me that there are two AAA locations in Reno, both in South Reno. 6795 S. Virginia and the other on Damonte Ranch Road. Both very way south. Not at all centrally located. AAA, where all members outside of South Reno don’t come at all at AAA.AAA has only one location in Sparks and that... (more)
