You're invited to the Honey Bee Hoedown, The Agricultural History Project's Annual Harvest Dinner to celebrate community, agriculture, and the fall harvest on Saturday, November 9, 5:30pm - 10:00pm at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds outside Watsonville. Tickets are $60 purchased by November 5. "Our theme this year is Honey Bee Hoedown and we're featuring exhibits from the Pacif Crest Apiaries and Wall Bee Hive on the importance of bees in food production - a timely topic! We have a lot of interest in the wonderful prizes in the raffle and the auctions, especially the weekend for 6 at a Pajaro Dunes Beach House and a Ghost Hunt and Dinner at the Tuttle Mansion," said Bridget Smith, co-organizer along with Sharon Feuerborn for the event this year. Bluegrass music by Sage Brush Band will kick off the party at 5:30pm and at 7:00pm Ken Schwan of Monterey Bay Caterers will be serving up a gourmet dinner featuring several entrees with all the trimmings! Festivities include the raffles, a fabulous silent auction, and an exciting live auction featuring the entertaining Terry Medina as auctioneer - you won't want to miss the traditional auction calling mixed with comedy. "This is our most popular event of the year. Everyone always has fun and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxing," said John Kegebein, Director of the Agricultural History Project. Prizes in this year's auction include the weekend for 6 at a Pajaro Dunes Beach House, the Ghost Hunt and DInner at the Tuttle Mansion, a wild game dinner for 8, and a 4-H Team to do your favorite honey-do projects! The Harvest Dinner is an annual fundraising event for the Agricultural History Project.

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
