This week

This week l participated in three days of tours at the wonderful Agriculture Museum in beautiful Santa Paula, California. Thursday night I participated at the wine and food tasting affair at MVC on Main Street in Ventura. I mostly stayed out of the way and learned a lot about food. Everything was grand and tasty, and I think everyone enjoyed an incredible night. Next week; more kids and tours. Come to the Agriculture Museum or the Museum of Ventura County, and bring your children. Help us celebrate agriculture, it's workers, and our shared history by supporting your local museum.

A Trip to Steckel Park in 1964

A Trip to Steckel Park in 1964

This was part of a series of travel information you could buy in the early 1960's. This guy went to all these places, got the pictures and information, and then tried to sell them to people who traveled on vacations. Steckel Park is in Ventura County, California, just north of Santa Paula, California, "The Citrus Capital of the World," and the home to both Union Oil and Sunkist Oranges.

I remember the crow named Sam, and the peacocks being everywhere and screeching like the devil. The park is still there but it is not the same as 1964. Still nice but definitely not the same.
