  1. Stay safe down there everyone. We’ve been going through hell up here on the Mendocino Coast with no end in sight.

  2. Barbara, I assume you are talking about my balinese frog princess mask I use as my “avatar.” And the answer is no, I am not going to “retire” it. It has been part of the bigsurkate “brand” so-to-speak for 15 years, and will continue for the next 15, if I am around that long. Ugly to you, but she welcomed customers to my friends shop, Exotica, in the Carmel Crossroads for an equally long time, before Cheryl sold the shop. If that is not what you are talking about, then enlighten us.
