Longtime readers will recall my friend Bob passed away a while back, and now his family needs to sell his race car. With all the car folks in town for Kool April Nites, I figure it would be good to post this again. Please share widely, and to anyone you know who might be interested. $80K into it, offered at $60K. When Bob tried to describe what it was like to drive it, words failed. Must be amazing! For Sale! Click to enlarge image above
This 1966 Pontiac GTO bodied Drag car represents a very good example of a modern drag race car custom build. Currently located in Redding California.

We had a strong wind last night. I saw some damaged trees around town. This big oak on Benton Drive still stands. We have some big trees in the Redding area. A while back, the wind took one of my favorite big beautiful oaks down. It was located on Deschutes Road. I thought I had a photo of that tree, but sadly I can’t find it. I will try to post more trees. ReallyRedding is a tree city, and there are many standouts.
My friend Joe Friedman let me shoot some of his calorie burning break dance moves in Anderson at California Dance Company studio the other day. I put it to music at YouTube.
Thanks, Joe. Your hard work and practice is evident. Below, his audition reel completed:
You can hardly get more central Dunsmuirian than the Cornerstone. A delightful cafe and bakery next to the California on the main street through town. The interior evokes memories of historic eateries infused with modern hipster vibe. Great colors, and very Dunsmuiresque art pieces on the walls.
Seen below, a trout fisherman seems ready to hook one of their excellent bakery items. The delightful Karry opted for the Cuban Pork Sandwich, slices of pork loin, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and mojo on a french roll. Not sure what mojo is, but it tasted great. I had a salad and the soup of the day, which was a terrific Clam Chowder, along with a Shasta IPA from one of several taps available.
Being a bakery, they have a selection of fresh desert items on display. I couldn’t find a website for them, but I did find the Cornerstone Bakery and Cafe menu online. It all looks very tasty, and I know we’ll be back to try more of it. Looks like we’re hooked! Open for breakfast and lunch, but not every day, so check ahead. 5759 Dunsmuir Ave, Dunsmuir, CA 96025 530-235-4677 .
I discovered this by accident. Recently, redding.com switched using Facebook to host their reader comments. For a while, I saw no comments on any article. It was a revelation. I really don’t care that much what a random group of strangers thinks about everything written at redding.com. It was nice.
But then I saw others commenting on Facebook about the comments at redding.com (negative comments, of course). So I began to wonder if it was just me who couldn’t see the comments. Sure enough, it was just me.
I use Chrome. I had previously installed a privacy plug-in named https://disconnect.me/ It was not letting Facebook requests into my browser, effectively shutting off the comments.
I like this plug-in. The free version lets you see who is tracking you and making requests at various websites, and you can turn them on or off with a software switch. So the default setting turns off the comments at redding.com. And several other things as well. The plug-in counts 66 things at redding.com at my browser:
Obviously you can leave the comments available, and choose not to read them for the same refreshing experience. But just like the ever popular car-wreck-rubbernecker analogy, I just always looked. And doing so, I was nearly always disappointed. The rare insight gained was not nearly valuable enough to offset the barrage of negativity I could not un-see.
So now they are simply switched off.
I suppose I’d forgotten just how pleasant it can be to simply read an article, and move on. No rubbernecking the wreckage. As revelations go, this one wasn’t earth shattering. But it’s been a change for the better.
While looking for images of the farmers market in Valencia for my last post, I realized I had some interesting (at least to me) images of churches and religious imagery from some Mediterranean cities that might make an appropriate post for Easter Sunday.
I had been randomly cataloging Redding Church buildings here at Really Redding over the years. I should start that again. In contrast to Europe, Redding churches tend to be utilitarian in design. Perhaps that’s our denomination then, we are mostly Utilitarians here.
I love taking photos and writing about Redding and our beautiful Shasta region. And my daughter and I earn our living helping people buy and sell real estate here. Who do you know that is buying or selling? Please let them know about us, and our family brokerage, The Address Realty. Thanks!!
