Posted by: thepinetree on 03/01/2024 12:45 PM
Arnold, CA…(The storm has scrambled the weekend activities enough that an accurate update was impossible.) Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings. The premise for the show is that the USDA ranked all 3,142 counties or county equivalents in the USA on a livability or desirability scale based on factors such as climate, scenic beauty, bodies of water for recreation, humidity and much more. All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent. So in the ups and downs of daily life remember you don’t have to be a Gates, Buffett or Bezos to live like the one percent. Just live here!

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/29/2024 08:21 PM
Beverly Hills, CA...Dinah Shore, February 29, 1916 – February 24, 1994.



"The best money advice ever given me was from my father. When I was a little girl, he told me, 'Don't spend anything unless you have to."

"Trouble is part of your life - if you don't share it, you don't give the person who loves you a chance to love you enough."

"Why should unmarried women be discriminated against - unmarried men are not."

A Bit of Wisdom from Linus Pauling

Posted by: thepinetree on 02/28/2024 02:17 PM
Big Sur, CA...Linus Carl Pauling February 28, 1901 – August 19, 1994.



"By the proper intakes of vitamins and other nutrients and by following a few other healthful practices from youth or middle age on, you can, I believe, extend your life and years of well-being by twenty-five or even thirty-five years."

"Do not let either the medical authorities or the politicians mislead you. Find out what the facts are, and make your own decisions about how to live a happy life and how to work for a better world."

"Science is the search for truth, that is the effort to understand the world: it involves the rejection of bias, of dogma, of revelation, but not the rejection of morality."

"You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency."

"The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas."
