The Lone Ranger was called that because he was the sole survivor of a patrol of Texas Rangers sent out to capture the Cavendish Gang. He was found by Tonto, an Apache he'd befriended as a child. Tonto nursed him back to health in an old silver mine, from which the LR got the metal for his famous silver bullets. A number of years later, Tonto found out what his name meant in English and shot his Faithful White Man Companion, sold the big white stallion to a circus, mined out the silver mine and sold it after salting it, and retired to Malibu where he spent the rest of his days harassing surfers and other non-intelligent sea life.

I posted this in a thread above the line, but I know MOM never goes up there, so I'm posting it here so she'll see it. 3-year-old conducts 4th mvt, Beethoven's Fifth.

Isn't this just a delight? This little guy doesn't just know this music, he loves it! (And don't you wish the conductor would roll around at the end of the piece?)

I sent that URL to the conductor of the local symphony -- Eiseley knows who I mean.

I must say, I've rarely seen a conductor wipe his nose on his sleeve during a performance.

I find his timing a tad off and it's a tribute to the horns that they continued execution even when he directed percussion to play through their triumph.

It's hard to get good help these days.

Of course, it's priceless... wonderful... thanks for posting it. It made me smile a lot.

I love the genuine pleasure this little boy had in not only standing on his little lectern and conducting, but in anticipating what was coming next. I found my self conducting along with him.

A favorite joke of my aunt's was musical in nature: a highway patrol officer pulls a vehicle over. The big cop lumbers up to the driver's window and announces "You forgot to cue in the woodwinds. Keep both hands on the wheel."

She said it happened to a friend of hers. Now it is a thing of urban legend. :)

Hi, Mom!! That boy was fun.

I had a long day Saturday--I drove down to the border and walked into TJ for a dental checkup and back again. Drove home. Got dressed up and went to the Epicoplian Church and got the sound set up for the funeral and the slideshow of pictures from the intense and colordul life of Peter Niiler. During the ceremony I was a reader. I read Ecclesiastes 1 to 13 (For every thing there is a season...) and it was good.

At the reception afterwards I sang the Parting Glass. They loved that. I did it a capella al fresca al dente di tutti capi.

How DARE you leave the USA and get dental treatment in Mexico!!! Shocking! Are you some kind of traitor or subversive??? Don't you believe in supporting the American medical system...the (Ha!) "best in the world" (rolling my eyes...). By God, if Sawzaw finds out that you are going to Mexico to get dental treatment, he will probably report you to Homeland Security, you damned socialist swine!

Heh! Heh! Heh! Just joking. Say "Hola" to the senoritas for me, okay?

Hola, senorita. Como mucho por la noche?

I once used that to say hello to a young lady, just like my youngest brother (the linguist, and a cunning one at that) taught me to do.

She slapped me, and then her hermanos stomped me. I don't think it mean "Hello, miss. How are you?" like he told me it does. I'm pretty sure that I can't trust my own brothers all of the time.

I also don't think "puta" means "happy", like he said it does.

LOL!!! Boy, is that ever lousy Spanish...but the meaning is still quite clear.

I think what you should have said, though, was something more like, "Hola, senorita. Yo necesito una puta muy pronto. Cuanto cuesta una noche contigo? Yo tengo cojones como un gran caballo."

Her hermanos would have REALLY stomped you! ;-D

For those who can never get enough of looking at everyone else's corner of the world, a clever tip from my son via Facebook: drop inurl:/view/index.shtml into a Google search bar and have hours of viewing cams (or dead links) around the world.

I've been sad ever since the BLM in Fairbanks stopped pointing a camera at the river across a parking lot behind their office. It was interesting to see how deep the snow, if any critters came through, what the river was doing, etc. I'd love to find one for another spot like that.

Actually, my class was in a town south of SLC at a university that shall remain nameless---one that I cheer against, whoever is playing.

SLC ain't bad. I went out to an exquisite Chinese restaurant on Friday night. It reminded me that this town, though I'm here by choice, is a bit of a backwater.

Been to the Thai Palace? Or Nepalese restaurant? Or the Cuban one? And there's that new sushi place that's going to open where Bullion Soup used to be. Now, if you want a culinary backwater try Idaho Falls....

But more importantly:

NASA RELEASES PHOTO OF LUNAR MONOLITH!!!

Here is a photo very recently released by NASA of the lunar south pole site where they crashed a probe last year to determine how much water might be up there. The colors in the photo indicate the amount of hydrogen detected, blue being the most and red the least. The area with the "X" is where the probe impacted.

BUT...in the lower right quadrant you can CLEARLY see a white cylindrical monolith, obviously left there to announce our space-faring presence a la "2001".

Are we ready? The Idaho Legion is in the midst of a Cosmic Galactic Disaster Drill as I report this, saddling and unsaddling horses, trying to find the ammunition and whiskey, and so on. THEY will be ready -- are YOU?

It's not that big. I went out and the girls told me that it hasn't changed much at all lately. We have a cloudy haze over it here in Edgecliff Village. The dogs have been more interested in the trees and squirrels than the moon, but at times I think they do acknowledge the moon with their dog/wolf/dog howls.

"The location of the Moon's South Pole is also digitally marked on the image. How deep beneath the surface the ice crystals permeate is still unknown, as well as how difficult it would be to mine the crystals and purify them into drinking water. "

Well, since I am the modest and self-effacing sort who never blows his own horn or hastens to point out his obvious brilliance and that sort of thing...yes, because I am the height of perfection and humility, I am going to resist the temptation to grandstand here and draw needless attention to myself by making the 39,000th post.

Modesty and self-effacement
Are two of the qualities of gentlefolk;
Others there are, as we all know
Who find such things to be a joke.
Take Bobert, that bluesman grand
He'd like to cop a hundred
But he will not leap on a sitting duck
That's done by a dunderhead.
Or gnu, or Eiseley, or even Stilly
Gentlefolks all, letting others go first
They know their manner, as do I --
They ingested such as they were nursed.
But there are others much more crude
Who belch at table, blow their nose
In the damask napkins or even worse --
On THEM the social doors will close!\
