Lemonade lessons from the desert

Its a cool morning in the desert, at the M.O.R.E. Mojave Off-Road Racing Breast Cancer Race, Barstow. I’m in my bright red and white racing suit, helmet on, slipping into our A-Arm car Class 1300, air is coming in to my helmet, someone is strapping me in, so many buckles. My oldest daughter calmly and […]

Weekly Note; Life aboard and 2+ Million Customers

Hello LOL Believers Life aboard a boat It’s Monday evening, another foggy evening on the water with the sea lion beasts across the channel barking incessantly. I am typing from my ipad at the nav station on the boat, AirPods in and some random music that I collected over the years.  I do my best […]

It’s a lazy Sunday on the water…

I am sitting on the stern of our cruising sail boat watching the world go by this morning. Tom and I got out early on the kayaks before the harbor became full of the  inlanders trying to escape the heat. We were met with dolphins at the harbor entrance playing among the mixed up sea. […]

Surviving the doldrums

12/15/22 10:16 pm Thursday It’s late, and the temperature is dropping, but tonight I don’t feel that chill, nor the boat rocking back and forth, I don’t hear the clanging of the halyards or feel the bubbles from the sea lions under my sailboat. Tonight I won’t be going to sleep in a down sleeping […]

Lemonade and Winter

11/15/22 With the weather getting colder it is getting quieter around the LOL headquarters. We had a few big orders go out last week and with the record breaking month we had last month, it was bound to slow up a bit. We’ve got another fresh batch of Lavender, Strawberry and our Original, “Classic” lemonades […]

Lemonade Life last week…

We had a little mishap with the LOL cube last week- I lost power on a busy Ventura roadway, turns out the radiator blew and the car shut it self down… All is well, that is after I pay the mechanic a lot of money to fix it… Looks like there is no slowing down […]

Celebrating 11 Years…

Its been a whirlwind of a week, setting up for the Jordanos Food Show, our valued distributor in Santa Barbara, tracking the supplies for the bottling this week, piloting our 41′ Sailboat in and out of the dock (for the first time!), and taking the 3rd Power Squadron boat handling class… Oh and somewhere along […]
