It's about 4/5ths of a mile from Joe Herb Park and the Bradley Overhead which everyone knows leads to nowhere. Any of us want to go there?

Looking through the windows in the roller doors I spied not a single Dalmatian. If the fire guys have one, he wasn't there, either.

That's Donini's dad at Dohini right after the ark landed on Mt. AraRAT in the Middle East.

You got a lot of breaks just like that.

No shoreline, no surfing.

That old dirtbag was Jonesing for some beach-time after "40 days and 40 nights."

Without getting into a heated debate/masturbate about religion and literal meaning versus general symbology, Father John Syneski, a secular priest from Chi-town who drove a splendid Bonny Convertible with the funds his family provided, explained to the sophomore religion class that forty days in scriptures is generally accepted as meaning only "an extended period of time."

He pointed out that anyone will die if they deprive themselves of food and water in the desert.

For that matter, the phrase "in the desert" can be taken to mean "in a state of spiritual dilemma," or "in a dark night of the soul."

It's impossible to surf behind a floating ark, duh.

We must receive new seeds from an old harvest

Old truths out of a time newborn ...

"A Responsory"


In "A Psalm" Merton writes:

The Spirit sings: the bottom drops out of my soul

And from the center of my cellar, Love, louder than thunder

Opens a heaven of naked air.


He wrote the acclaimed book Seven STorey Mountain, as a fling and to impress God with his understanding of how to get crampons out of the way while taking a dump.

There's a tie-in with the San Diego Zoo for you, zBrown.

It must've been a vista chula from the spot where the ark settled, on whichever mountain is its actual landfall location.

Whilst it's easy to understand J. Donini's reputation in the world, I have yet to understand how and why Doheny became immortalized as a surfing spot by cuz Brian. I doubt that there has been a decent surfing wave since Noah built his Ark (in the Otay River Bed, after the damn broke in ... long story).

Otay once had a watch factory. It failed. Not hard to understand. How hard is it to tell when manana is? (bad form, I know, just like the waves at Doo-heny).

Increased Expression of RbAp48 Restores Memory Capacity in Old Mice

This is very interesting, as it suggests that the processes of memory are not greatly inhibited by most of the forms of cellular damage that causes aging, at least in mice, and that this portion of mental decline occurs due to one of the epigenetic responses to that damage.

I hope I remembr to ... uh ... wait a minute

Around 1981 in the lodge overflow parking lot, a blonde hippy chick once came up to a group of us and introduced herself as Ya-Ya da Flamme.

Or was it Ja-Ja da Flamme?

If you posted some video I can't see it. Great firewall of China and all.

Nevertheless, I can say with pretty close to 100% certainty that it didn't happen in 1961. I was all of -2 years old.

Randisi, meet Lee Dorsey (came out in 1961). I doubt that he ever made it to Yosemite, but I'll check and get back.
