New posts at Noah's Motoring Garage.
We have had a busy weekend here in Red Bluff- or at least Philip had. He started building a chicken house in the backyard for the chickens we hope to get in the new year.

Then he made homemade pasta with the new pasta maker. It turned out really well despite a few initial speed bumps!
This morning when I woke up there were sticky buns going into the oven for breakfast (this was a birthday special!).

After our spectacular breakfast of sticky buns and coffee we explored a small wilderness area in the southwest corner of Shasta County called the Chanchelulla Wilderness. It was very scenic although quite cold and windy at the peak. -Rachel
Happy birthday to Rachel!

There is a gallery of photos on . They are from 10-18-11. Albany- Saratoga speedway now under the command of Howie Commander having new clay put down over the new asphalt. There will be dirt racing again in Malta in 2012.

After a squirrel battle that couldn't be beat... well Jon beat it, to death. We did the Christmas drawing as we have reached the maximum members present between now and that thing.

If anyone has any issues with that then you are well on your way to ruining another Christmas. Cyndy and I will be eating Christmas meat at our house, if you are listed above you and your family can come to that unless otherwise noted.

Philip and I went to the "first crush" at our local olive orchard this past weekend. There was a big party complete with hay rides, tritip sandwiches, wine tasting, and a live band that I though was karaoke at first. Turns out they are professionals. We didn't last long because it was cold and windy, but we did see all of their fancy Italian olive crushing machinery. -Rachel
