Sometimes I've already completed my column days before this and have given it to Mike to insert in the Julian News. I like to finish writing and editing my column as early in the week as possible. This wasn't one of those weeks and now I'm writing a new column at this late hour because I can't find my computer disc with my most recent column on it. I don't remember ever losing my computer disc in the past, however, I just,spent about twenty minutes rearranging the piles on my desk while looking for it. I found old flyers for several Julian Chamber of Commerce mixers (get togethers). 1 found church newsletters, bank statements, bills, catalogs, lots of catalogs, a few em pty envelopes that I saved for the return addresses and a pile of shiny computer discs that I've been saving to.hang in the fruit trees to scare away the birds. But I didn't find my disc. Looking through all of the papers and other items on my desk is always an interesting experience, probably because I don't clear things away often enough. Mike and I are pliers. We aren't dirty people and we aren't as messy as a few people I know. However, we pile things on top of other things, and apparently my computer disc is hiding under one of our piles or under something because it sure isn't visible. I really wish I could find it because it has my nearly finished column that I wanted to turn in tonight. Mike and I had a busy and exhausting weekend. I worked extra hours m my shop and while I was there, I spent a lot of time pricing fabrics and laces that I have no idea how to price, so I can put them out for sale. My sister brought me, literally, a pick up truck load of party and costume fabrics to price and sell. I am now pricing and finding room for lace by the yard, lace yardage, satins, gabardines, old 40s or 50s curtain fabrics and I have boxes full of fabrics I haven't even looked at yet. While I was busy in my shop, Mike worked at the 41st annual Jamboree and Banjo Fiddle Contest. Saturday and Sunday he arrived before any of the musicians and left long after the last musicians drove away. He also worked on the newspaper when he found the time. Sunday nights are a very busy time for The Julian News staff. The staff consists of Mike and I. He gets lots more credit than I do in writing and taking photographs for the paper and he is the one who puts it all together so it will be ready to send to the printer before dawn on Monday morning. Mike calls Sunday night his time to put the puzzle together. He always amazes me when I look at his work and see how well he fits all the puzzle pieces together to make The Julian News each week. He's been doirlg this since the beginning of July, 2004. I help a little bit by writing my weekly column and occasionally editing other people's writings. So where is my disc? I have no idea where it could be hiding. looked all across the top of my desk which is in the shape of a squared off "U". I looked under the desk in case the cats knocked or shoved the disc off and under something. Our cats like to paw at things just enough to knock them off whatever surface they occupy. Looking for my disc again, I found a fabric patch I bought for Cindy Shriver in 1995. I lost track of it where put it for safe keeping in the very back of my desk drawer, until tonight and I'd better get it into the mail before I lose it for another fifteen years. Meantime, I need to find a place where I can find it again easily, yet keep it out of reach of the cats. Keeping things away from our cats isn't always easy. We really like our c.ats and they sure keep us 4~ore aware of where we place things than we would ever be, withoU trying tO figure out how to keep everything safe from all of them. I've written several columns these past seven years about our cats. I even wrote an obituary or two about our cats when the time came for them to pass on. I'm sure I will write many more columns about our cats in the years to come, but right now, I'm still looking for my disc and writing about it. I'm a person who often, though not always uses a thing and then puts it in a logical place. I say that I don't always put it in a logical place because once in awhile I set a thing down n a place that is so foreign to anyone's logic that it seems like I will never ever find it again. I hope this isn't true of my computer disc. This is Sunday night and I am completing my column for this week's newspaper, knowing that somewhere, some time, I will find my missing computer disc and it will already have a mostly finished column on it. I can usually find something positive to say about nearly every situation and I just did. These are my thoughts. New NAPA Auto Parts Opens A new auto parts store has opened in Julian.

If you want to know how prices were a hundred years before that, you can find out from handwritten interviews of California old-timers, preserved at U.C. Berkeley. Good land was worth about .1000 dollars or pesos a league, which works out to 23 cents an acre. Viejas went for less than half that. Dollars and pesos were equivalent, as the new dollar was based on the universal peso Of world trade. You could put some tame mares on the land for $2 a head. Or maybe a choice stallion for $5 -10. Cattle varied from $2 to $5 a Tidbits No. 8 The Costs Of Living In The Back Country by Albert Simonson are still some old-timers who can tell you about low prices the Great Depression.

If you had a saddle, you could always find a horse, but staying on him was another matter. A barrel of brandy set you back $50. People paid mostly in hides and tallow or otter skins to the ships in the port, because pesos were scarce. You could get about $2for a good cowhide or 25 pounds of tallow. Wine was less costly at $16-25 a barrel. These barrels were small wooden ones of 18 gallons. Madera was popular. All of San Bernardino sold for $1,000 and was considered a frontier rancho of Christian civilization. Rancheros like Bandini at Rancho Jamul sold out because of Indian predation. Our own Cockney Bill of Rancho Volcan won the respect of his Indian neighbors and got along well with them. Lassitor at Cuyamaca's Green Valley did well, too. He hired them as a road gang and paid them with clothing and liquor. Think well of them as you drive through. Lassitor was famous for bad spelling and getting murdered in Arizona still today a handgun-infested place. Everlasting life would be a good thing if you could still pick up good deals like San Bernardino and keep it as a long-term investment and not get murdered. But, as the renowned economist Keynes said, in the long term we are all dead, so forget the long term. And, as my mom said, you won't take it with you when you go. Being in politics is like being a football coach,, you have to be smart enough to understand the game and dumb enough to think it's important. --Eugene McCarthy The 3rd Annual 1st Place Winner - BEST ALL AROUND BUCK 2nd Place Winner - WIDEST SPREAD 3rd Place Winner - HUNTER'S CHOICE Bring your horns to the Awards Dinner for voting of Hunter's Choice Entry Fee $25 per hunter for one contest entry Entry Deadline Before the Kill Payment 4:)All ~}aw Cash, Credit or Check made payable to: The Round Up BBQ Grill may Win only one category Awards Dinner Saturday, November 19th @ 5pm ~ Serving Regular Menu & Dinner Special Located across from Lake Henshaw at 26439 Hwy 76 Live Music
