You let us know when you two get the hole big enough. This looks like more fun than ice climbing, even.

Blarney Castle, Cork. The Stone of Eloquence is under the hole in the parapet. Has anybody dared to climb this? It looks killer. They'd probably find a gun somewhere and shoot you, though.

Manteca? The Family City?

Spent part of the day there. Lard have mercy.

Anyone know the Oasis of the Valley? The Jewel of the Valley? Cowboy Capital of the World?

Is there a prize? Is there cat burglars? Do you know the way to Oakdale?
Mommy, what's a Hummer? Daddy said he used to buy them. How deep is the concept of a Whole Earth? Ask this guy.

I can dig it. And I can dig that crazy EE Icon, Ike an' Shari Edie. These former in-laws have been hosting EE Weekends for like thirty years. Mole holy frijole that's a lot of Catholic weddings.

Ike and Shari explain various things about Catholicity and birth controllery to engaged couples. Like what's a "hummer"? Has the Pope got one? Has my bishop ever had one? Who's driving?

Have you anything more to say about "Doggie On the Roof," Mr. Romney? Can we move on to "Rolling Stones" now? It is almost Easter, after all.

"knight takes knight, forking the queen" (from actual 1956 Bobby Fischer "game of the century") and if I recall correctly the Cardinal provided the Pope with a hummer (at least it wasn't some little kid - only a pawn in their game?)

it's all been said before, it's all been written in the book (but now we have the internet and Youtube)

Mouse, if ya wanna crack up Larry/Lavrenty/Pablo salute him the next time you see him with

**"shto novovo, moi stari bzdyokh!"

The phonetic would be: shto noevava, moy starry bzdyokh, with the kh being waay back on the palate.

Trust me, it'll crack him up! And it isn't really anything bad. :-)

Mouse,

I wouldn't be deported. I was born here in the U.S. to a U.S. citizen and... I have too many Good Lawyer friends who will ensure my rights.

Film shot locally by Andy Warhol in 1968 to premiere in La Jolla

I was living in Berkeley then, but maybe I was in town for a visit. Sure hope he got me on film. I'll be there for the opening, hope Mitt makes it too.

Yup, Mouse, that does look like Randy's handwriting (alias Desmond Farquhar) and his sense of humor (alias Normal Nebraska).

I gotta say, young Sergei was a hoot and, as they also say in France and Spain,
simpatichny/sympa/simpatico.

And, yes, I like the chess very much. Would I be bragging to say I was
undefeated in two months in Soviet Union? Is true - but then Karpov was
whole time dodging me so I was never really tested.

And the 'traffic police' have/had it very good. None of this decadent car
chasing with flashing lights. No, just a subtle come hither waggle of
the finger and we're going to have a little talk. Oh, and you will
pull over, if you know what is good for you.

@zbrown. If San Diego Surfer is anything like Chelsea Girls, don't hold your breath. I went to a special screening last summer in NY with all of the "still alive, not dead yet" actors and scenesters.
Lou Reed was in front of me stinking up the theater with a big meatball sandwich. Even he could't take it anymore and left before me.

Would be hairy if I was in it TTR. I once challenged Dylan and Caruso to a breath holding contest, neither showed up.

Public Service Announcement for the Day concerning why hair never 'catches' cancer.

“Hair isn’t made of cells,” says Leona Samson, professor of biology and biological engineering and an affiliate in the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research. “The stuff that makes hair”—a thready protein called keratin that also forms fingernails—“is produced by cells in the hair follicle. You have to have cells to have cancer.” Though rare, tumors do sometimes form in the cells in the hair follicle. These cancer cells have lost their ability to grow in a way that is appropriate for where they are in the body. A liver cell, for example, may become so deranged that it doesn’t act like a liver cell anymore. Then, when it divides (as cells do), it passes its derangement on, replicating its abnormalities and spreading them.

[There are rumours that folks are working on producing all skin via 3D Printer technology and keratin thereby eliminating some of these things like squamous cell carcinoma (my nemesis) and melanoma (Dave Chalmers'). These have not be substaniated and cannot be considered part of the Announcement therefore.]


I spent a lot of time running around like this. Note my aunt following in the Flames tradition of gentle mockery.

History Annoucment of the Day. Right behind me in the photo, during WWII, there was an underwater fence constructed to keep Japanese (and I would assume also German) submarines out of San Diego Bay. This was pre Otis Redding.

Reilly, really? I'm so exhausted from larfing at that. Cheenyus!

Andy Fielding, with regard to your posting of the Cemetery Gates video, The Flames posted it before you, mate; but the Russians are alredy claiming to have posted that video first!

Damn them!
