Mid May

Change is continous. I haven't posted lately and everthing is new and improved. It is a lot like advertisers and politicians. If we could only get them to tell the whole truth.

It is time to gear up for the Super Bull. A one day super rodeo. Stop by the snack bar and support the Surprise Valley Chamber with their fund raising efforts. Of course the Ft Bidwell BBQ comes first. It is hard to believe that there are so many things to do every week all year long in the valley. Check out the calendar of events page on the website and click the calendar tab.

I bought a cool instrument called the Quantum Resonance Magnetic Analyzer. I am amazed how much it can tell you about the state of your body in about 2 minutes. Magnetic resonance is an amazing science.

The hotel has been as busy as my wife wants it to be. She put the No Vacancy sign up saying we are full enough until the laundry is caught up. I'm testing a new coffee pot. It grinds the coffee, makes it and keeps it hot in a thermo caraf. I think I will have to keep it in the kitchen though as it is too complex to let the guests fool with it. Seems to make excelent coffee though and takes a while to clean.

The official squirrel round up was a great success for the Surprise Valley Chamber of Commerce,, and will help us to keep giving away scholarships as well as promote our local businesses. The weather threatened but only occured at night and wasn't bad anyway so all had a great hunt.

There was an acticle posted on and includes some great photos. Check it out.

The weather here is still unsettled. We had a bit of rain yesterday and last night but the sun has returned to give us another great hunt day.

On our web site,, under calendar are the upcoming events including a change in the Fair date. Also under Weather you can check out what is in store. Just remember to check out the NE corner of the state as the weather here is often different than elsewhere. With the valley sitting between 2 mountain ranges we don't seem to get as much rain & snow as anyone else does.

If you are a Rotarian or interested in being one, come to one of our dinner meetings on Wednesday nights at 7pm. We are raffeling off 7 pistols this year at our fly-in and 2 rifles at the fair, a .22 Golden Boy and a .17 Savage HMR with scope. The barrel is really different with its scrolling design and a pretty rifle. You don't have to be there to win.
