Warning: Labels


Imagine if we humans came with warning labels. Can you think of anyone who should have one? Would anyone think you should have one?

The Do Tell question of November is: If you had a warning label about you, what would it say?



Jo Anna Battaglia, Kings Beach

Watch out; I’m an artist.


Jeffery Adam Laird, Yuba City (but works in Tahoe often)

Not perpetuating a worthless existence.


Mary Brunk, Carnelian Bay
Photographer, mom, caterer

Warning: Multitasking.


Nicolas Dolan, Tahoe Vista
Graffiti artist

Sometimes I’m too fresh.


Marley “Margnar” Anderson, Tahoe Donner
Mountain biker, ski bum, disappointment to my parents

Explosive: Handle with care.


  • Ted Coakley III

    Lived: OH-TX-OK-CA-NY-CA Visited (work and/or non-work): many states all over the U.S., MX, Canada, Central & South America, Asia & Europe. High on my wish list is Ireland, all over Africa, New Zealand, Russia, Norway, China, Iran, Bhutan, Ecuador, Iceland, Bali, Baja .... well, okay, any/everywhere would be great to visit. Worked: photo, film/video, manual labor, high finance, menial, profound. Someone recently asked me, "You like to talk to people that others don't like to talk to?" I answered that I do like doing that, as much as talking to anyone else, but it's not "a thing" for me that I'm especially into. A day or two later, it struck me why I was asked that - because a lot of people are not like that ... not like me in that way. I'm glad I'm not like others in that way. ¡All for fun and fun for all!
