I had not heard about the recall of GM cars because I have a faulty ignition.

I have heard that there was a "recall" of an ST thread because of a similar problem here lately, but there are no witnesses besides the few souls who bothered to post (mostly negative).

This is to be construed as a "gentle poke," and not a floor-to-ceiling uppercut.

Damn, I feel like I criticized Paul Ryan.

If someone is gonna delete a thread, shouldn't they delete the derivatives also, or is that too tuff a calculus.

There is a saying about wise men and danger. I will leave that to more wiser men than I. I am not feeling very wise. I am off the line again.

The line being the 'ON' line. "I am just a poor boy"--I keep coming back to The Boxer here lately--and I need to pay up my Comcast debt this week.

I am at the public trough/library.

Let me just say that I deeply regret
That having to pay for the internet
Is a fact of existence in the ether.

I could sit here and waste the rest of my scant time allowed at the public trough by trying to create a workable rhyme to go with that but I can wait and so can you, I'm sure.

My time has not been ill-spent away from the ST. I was reading Bouncing Outside (a candy dish of picaresque entertainment) over the weekend, part of the time, and this morning early I was in the Second Time Around Bookstore chatting-up the lively Alyssa (who cut here ringleted hair and it looks charming and cool). Then into the store walked Mr. Steve Cassady, author of B.O., in the flesh, and there is more than the last time because Steve has not been kayaking all that much, not like he does in the book. I joked about that and he forced a laugh and a "F*#k you" fell out of his mouth, as well.

As long as she had two reading genii in the store, Alyssa had us give her off the tops of our heads our top five favorite novels. Mine had NO FAULKNER in it, while Steve's had no Edward Abbey. I prefer Robert Lewis Taylor's Jamie McPheeters to his Absalom, Absalom. Faulkner's too serious for mice, it seems.

This is no fun. Sitting here listening to kids' noise in the library is one reason I don't come here often any longer. I remember when NO SOUNDS WERE PERMITTED in the place, other than the turning of a page or the quietest of coughs was acceptable. Now it's like a day care. I guess paying is the best way to avoid this, after all.

It rained most of the weekend.

I have written most of what will be the Travels of Moose and Mouse: A Ditty of Rocks.

Moosedrool, I hope you have a good music system in your traveling rig. Sirius would be fun, I imagine--I'd hate to think we were gonna have to listen to cassettes the whole way. There are no deal-breakers here, though, and I hope you are feeling well enough to make the trip.

I mainly wanted to forestall any questions that may arise due to my absence, as happened recently. I will be back online by the third.

My time's almost up. I have to check out Galen Clark: Yosemite Guardian and Winston Churchill by Robert Lewis Taylor. And then look for the Pluto Files by Tyson.

Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked did he believe in UFOs on this Youtube video that Alyssa had me look at earlier today. He simply might have said, "No," but that's not what he's paid to do. When she looked him up, she was claiming he was the new Carl Sagan. She couldn't remember his name, see, and I said just look up the Black Carl Sagan. Guess what?

In the clearing stands a boxer
A fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
of all the blows that struck him
and made him want to cry out
in his anger and his pain
I am leaving, I am leaving
But the fighter still remains.....

Speaking of the Bar With No Name
colloquially known as the No Name Bar

My wife and I used to hang out there when we lived on our sailboat in Sausalito.
All the great SFBay jazz musicians played at one time or another. A very jolly place on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights.

hey there say, mouse... oh my... i know how you feel about the net payments, that why i had net zero for so long... dail up... it was 9.99 a month, and they let me pay in a 'two year payment'... at least i got on line...

now, with family help, i have a payment through my phone that is about what a what a bill would cost with some long distance on it...
every month...

hopes and prayers, that you can get back your payments cycles...
i used to go to the library for years, ours here, ARE kept quiet... but, they are small one... and if you don't get there at good times, you have to wait for a computer... for the one-hour that you may have...


back when i went to the library, though, if was a long stretch, then, as i was in the more country'ish side of town... now the library is closer...
say, if you had more libraries, you could pick a better one, but:
i know where you live, most likely there is just the one local...

let us know how you are... hang in there...
may the new spring, bring new springs to life for you...

god bless, hopes and prayers...

I did not know we had a horse in this race.

Keeping an open mind.

Good horses are where you find them.

Let It All Hang Out

(spoken): "A preachment, dear friends, you are about to receive
on John Barleycorn, nicotine, and the temptations of Eve"
(Bronx cheer)

No parkin' by the sewer sign
Hot dog, my razor's broke
Water drippin' up the spout
But I don't care, let it all hang out

Hangin' from a pine tree by my knees
Sun is shinin' through the shade
Nobody knows what it's all about,
It's too much, man, let it all hang out

Saw a man walkin' upside down
My T.V.'s on the blink
Made Galileo look like a Boy Scout
Sorry 'bout that, let it all hang out

Sleep all day, drive all night
Brain my numb, can't stop now
For sure ain't no doubt
Keep an open mind, let it all hang out

It's rainin' inside a big brown moon
How does that mess you baby up, leg
Eatin' a Reuben sandwich with sauerkraut
Don't stop now, baby, let it all hang out

Let it all hang out (harmonized) [repeat to fade]
