Sonoma & Napa Fire Pets Rescue & Reunification team of volunteers.

Over 600 cats were posted on Facebook, lost during the Tubbs Fire. This group of volunteers has rescued over 270 cats from fire areas. There have been many successful & teary reunions between the cats & their humans. However, there are many rescued cats & other fire animals, still waiting in shelters to be reunited with their families. Many of the cats are not chipped or phone numbers are disconnected. The information is all over Facebook, but many people do not do social media. There is a kiosk in Coffey Park, at the cross street of coffee Lane & Dogwood, where there are pictures of found fire cats & a pet reunification tree with pictures. Fire victims need to come forth & see if their cats are rescued. If the victims cannot care for the cats any longer, the cats need to at least be identified so that adoptions can take place. Shelters are prolonging the adoption process to allow fire victims to get to their cats. Many victims think their babies are gone so why bother looking. But, miracles are happening daily! The shelters are full & these animals need to be reunited with their families.

New Exhibition - 50 Years of Franklin - Schulz Museum

Charles Schulz introduced topical issues using humor as a vehicle for serious subjects. In 1968, shortly after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a LA Schoolteacher, Harriet Glickman, wrote to Schulz regarding the integration of Peanuts.

The Book of Moron - San Rafael

2/24, 8pm, & 2/25, 4pm & 8pm.
A fast-paced, hilarious production that combines satire & theater into what is being described by critics as: “Razor-sharp!” “Laugh Out Loud!” “Provocative!” “Thought Provoking!” “Brilliant!” and “A Thinking Man’s One Man Show!” Garry Shandling called it, “The funniest show you’ll ever think at!” & Dana Carvey from SNL declares, “If funny were a religion, Bob is nothing short of a miracle!”

So if you are tired of adolescent comedies generated by the mediocrity of television & are yearning for some satire that cuts with a clever intelligent edge; then buckle up for a hilarious joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy with Robert Dubac’s satirical bulls-eye, THE BOOK OF MORON!
It’s comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it?
