The OB Rag staff is on a “staycation” – we can’t afford a real vacation – so we’re hanging out in town, enjoying local restaurants, bars, bird-sightings, walks around Famosa Slough, bike rides.

IN the meantime … we’re reposting old articles with interesting subjects. Such as the 45th anniversary of the infamous Collier Park Riot of March 28, 1971.

have a good one Frank,

sometimes the negativity of politics & other things gets overwhelming & cause us to lose appreciation for what we love. re-engaging outside of the ‘normal’ day to day – can help revive our appreciation for what we love & are blessed with. enjoy.

We’re bbbbaaaakkkk! Wow, what a relaxing bunch of days – the weather in OB/PL was patchy, with some sun, and some rain out at the Light House on Wed. Saw lots of birds at Famosa Slough and in the River; a Blue Heron, wow – they are rare.

Speaking of birds, wtf with these latest parrot killings.

Trying to get back to normal, whatever that is, back to our regular posting schedule.
