What I Accomplished Yesterday
(From Lake Tahoe)

1) Did research for my book "Bakeries I Have Known and Loved."

2) Learned origin of word/term "moxie.

3) Had my picture taken with large pine cone on my head.

4) Pondered why there aren't any restaurants named after Donner party.

No wonder I was tired last night.

Moxie: name of longest continuously operating soft drink company. They used to advertise their invigorating elixir. You've got moxie!



  1. And now we want to see the picture of you with a large pine cone on your head. Aren't word origins fascinating? Thanks for the "lively" reporting from Lake Tahoe.

  2. Yes please send a picture you moxie thing you!
