If you're looking for the Wild West, you could do no better than to go to a place that was once the home of Mark Twain and even memorialized in one of his short stories. Lucky for California residents, Calaveras County is a reasonable drive from both north and south and puts a lot of Gold Rush history all within a few square miles. Students of Mark Twain will remember the "Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," a short story that was actually Twain's first published work and what eventually made him famous.

If Kermit the Frog were Methodist, he’d have a friend in La Cañada United Methodist Church Pastor Sunny Pak. When Pak was 6, she became severely ill and was hospitalized for two years. She was so ill, she prepared herself to die, noting that the medical system in Korea was not good enough to diagnose her sickness. It was then that her mother took her to a prayer mountain, known in the Western world as a retreat. On the mountain, little Sunny could hear the sound of frogs croaking as they sat in their ponds all around her. Sunny recovered, and came to adopt the frog as her symbol — her mascot, as Pak puts it — for relying on God, which she believes allowed her to be cured.

Some of California's most beautiful and least developed countryside can be found in Pluma County, about an hour's drive west from Reno — which happens to be where we found a real-life version of the movie "City Slickers" at Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch. Sometimes you just know when you've come home. Within about 30 minutes of our arrival at Greenhorn, we were chowing down on their Friday night barbecue of scrumptious, fall-off-the-bone ribs with all the fixings. The owners of the ranch, Trish and Ralph Wilburn, were strumming their guitars and singing western songs by the campfire.

Slow traffic, ?Not a problem.? Rude customer, ?That?s all right.? These are some of the positive attitudes that members of La Crescenta Church of Religious Science Center for Spiritual Living are attaining as a part of their Complaint-Free Zone program. ?I think that this is such a profound reminder of what a waste of time complaining really is,? said church member Sherry Robb.
