Pocatello, the soul of Creation
The home of the plink and the plod,
Where the natives speak only to Bookman
And Bookman pretends to be Gawd!

We did join the USA. Just ask our President Stephen Harper before he loses the next election. That will be shortly after he sells off what he hasn't sold to America, China, Malaysia, etcetera, yet.

BTB... I note that a huge tarsands development project has just been halted because of the nixing of pipelines in the US caused by the protests (mainly by our First Nations). BRAVO! and thanks to those who stood up for Mother Earth, including Neil Young, Tutu and the guy in the funny hat.

I'm in Charleston, SC. We lost our main mast, our mizzen head, the poop deck and the foreskincastle but the Coast Guard found us drifting and towed us to port. They tracked us by the trail of, ah, waste the cap'n left in the water when he found the poop deck gone.

If Canada had joined the US like God intended the Canucks would have been able to celebrate on both July 1 and July 4.

For the 'mericans on this thread it's a really really good day to leave the computer alone (it's just a bunch of knee-jerk ultra-patriotic jabber today). Unless you have it set so you can occasionally see if Rap has posted any photos of his trip. And was there supposed to be a hurricane as part of the entertainment for the cruise, or is that a bonus?

Now, this is very dark but I laughed out loud. Stanfest has been cancelled and that is a plain shame. It's very sad news. Just now when I heard the radio news while waiting for The Vinyl Café (it's good; CBC Radio 1) and the folk community has rallied in an attempt to pay homage to one of the good ones, Stan Rogers! This Saturday's concert with whoever at whatever church is billed as a Cat 5 Céilidh. Arthur won't be a Cat 5 hurricane but he sure as hell might screw up the concert. Made ME laugh, anyway.

Hmmm... is that a little bit ironic or just unfortunate? Unfortunate. Yeah. Not ironic at all, is it? I am minded of an Irish comic (David Byrne?) who said sommat like... if you were a city planner stuck in traffic enroute to a meeting where you were giving a talk about managing traffic, that would be ironic but rain on your wedding day is just unfortunate, adding that Alanis Morisette (spg?) is a 'silly cow'.

2:45 AM ADT Thursday 03 July 2014
Tropical cyclone information statement for:

NEW BRUNSWICK
NEWFOUNDLAND
NOVA SCOTIA
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND

For tropical storm Arthur.

The next statement will be issued by 9:00 AM ADT.

Tropical storm Arthur to merge with a cold front late this week while moving toward Atlantic Canada. Arthur will likely affect the weather to parts of Atlantic Canada on Saturday.

1. Summary of basic information at 3.00 AM ADT.

Location: 30.9 north 79.1 west.

About 250 kilometres east of Jacksonville.

Maximum sustained winds: 110 km/hour.

Present movement: north near 13 km/h.

Minimum central pressure: 988 MB.

2. Public weather impacts and warnings summary.

The tropical storm is expected to intensify to hurricane strength later this morning as it moves slowly northeastward not far off the U.S. East Coast. A trough of low pressure will be moving eastward from the Great Lakes, guiding Arthur toward Atlantic Canada. The nature of the trough approaching from the Great Lakes will make all the difference in Arthur's intensity, track and structure as it moves toward our region.

As usual, the track map forecast implies detailed location and storm intensity however there is still considerable uncertainty. The forecast track has been adjusted slightly to the west since the track model guidance this morning indicates a track slightly farther west.

A. Wind.

Significant wind is possible for portions of Atlantic Canada this weekend especially for regions to the south and east of the storm track. However, due to uncertainty in the storm track, it is too early to confidently say where in Atlantic Canada the strongest winds will be.

B. Rainfall.

Significant rainfall amounts are likely for parts of Atlantic Canada on the weekend. Details in the nature of the interaction of the cold front with Arthur as well as the exact track of Arthur will determine where the highest rainfall amounts will occur.

C. Surge/waves.

Significant storm surge and waves is possible with Arthur especially for regions south and east of the storm track. Details as to the exact location of where the biggest impact from surge and waves will occur will become clearer in the next two days.

3. Marine weather impacts and warnings summary.

Mariners (Rap) should remain on alert and stay tuned for forecast updates.

Why did they stay in a summer fly infested and winter Nor'easter snow infested part of the world? Fuck. Ya'd a think that after a few years they would have said "What the fuck?" Of course, back then, they didn't have internUt and didn't know about Calleeforneeahhh or Texas or New Mexico or wherever.

Amos, I've gone to that park a number of times and enjoyed it greatly. What I especially like is that the meadows are large enough that the animals act naturally. I remember watching a Sable chasing around fending off another male from his harem while trying to herd a female to his own domain.

I especially like that animals that are no threat to each other and are compatible in their habits share the same compounds, so you'll see the dik diks, giraffes, sables, and other herbivores in plain view of each other. Kind of like a mini Serengeti.

I also like that visitors flank the rim of the wilderness world so that the animals can - and do - ignore our presence.

I was down there - in the early 90's - when a wildfire raged through part of the park. From my family's back yard we could see smoke and the occasional leaping flames. I don't think there were any casualties.

Of course, youse know this is a ruse eh? I would never smack the livin shit out of a rat with a bushy tail with a hockey stick just because I wanna make sure it doesn't get into my attic and stink the place up and fuck up the insulation and chew wires and whatever. That would be cruel.

I heard it skitter up the pine next to me and it sat squirrel-like at shoulder level in the perfect spot. That's when I heard small children next door. I named my new pet "Yer some fuckin lucky rat."

On 1000 acres of scrubland in the north of San Diego County is a huge wilderness that was once called Wild Animal Park and is now called Safari Park. It is peopled with elephants, dik-diks, zebras, Bengal tigers, wild desert asses, antelopes and hundreds of other kinds of birds and animals. It does breeding for endangered species and research into obscure zoological questions, and makes money by showing the wild animals to the public, much like a zoo. But instead of cages the tigers and the lions and the giraffes and the elephants all roam their own wilderness areas, while the people stroll on protected pathways and tramways. It's a wonderful place, and yesterday we spent the night there in a set of fine study tents set up for paying customers, took long tours of the wilderness by flashlight, and watched the animals come out at night, watched elephants cavort in their water ponds at sunset, as carefree as any wild beast with a full belly could be, watched the prowling Bengals and listened to the mumble of elephants and exostic birds through the small hours of the morning. It was a wonderful night. We were up at five watching the phunks and the lions strolling in the predawn light. Dinner and breakfast was laid on, and they offered drinks and snacks. A lovely way to spend 24 hours, and it felt like a four day vacation. We were delighted by the whole expedition and came home tired by full of fine rsare memories.

That looks like fun, Rap. On the Alaska ferries, most staterooms have bunk beds rather than the more accessible twins. No one spends much time in the rooms but a little comfort doesn't come amiss.

And with fewer than 100 people you'll be riding in style- on one ferry ride I took, there were only 24 people aboard. I felt like a person with my own yacht.

In Juneau, we have small excursion ships that don't have the crowds that people every corner- and they visit islands and coves and shorelines. I have never heard any bad things about them.

I have sometimes said that one day I will purchase a big luxury liner, park it at someplace like San Diego, California and after everyone is aboard, disengage from the ramps and draw the blinds. I will set the sea in gentle motion to give each 'passenger' the authentic experience of ocean travel.

Then I will entertain them royally with glorious food and marvelous service, gambling, live music, magicians, strip shows and whatever else is in current vogue.

At the end of seven (7) days I will give the order to bring up the ramps, open the blinds and the doors and watch the satisfied, satiated clientele troop on shore, smiling with great achievement at the close of another successful adventure.

Entrepreneurs are welcome to incorporate my ideas into their own ventures but remember this is a franchise and thus requires annual royalties. To me.

Tomorrow I go to Salt Lake City. Sunday I fly to Jacksonville, FL, where I shall board an assault craft for a Secret Destination somewhere on the East Coast (I'm not at liberty to tell you what country). I can tell you that at one point I shall be at the Naval Facility near Hampton Roads, VA. I'll be doing this without weapons, except perhaps a pocket knife.

I'm taking on this desperate and dangerous mission for MOAB. I know that the rest of you can't take a fifteen day cruise up the East Coast, visiting Savannah, Charleston, St. Simon's Island, Baltimore, New York, and other places so out of the immense generosity I have been given as part of my makeup I am doing it for you. I hope to let you know at least daily how much or how little you're enjoying yourselves.

And NO! I am not playing Dempsey! He gets the ball far too often and he's a quick bugger and I cannot swig like a young man anymore.

Of course, since I play Schweinsteiger!!! by myself, I only have to compete against the Limey announcer so I needn't take but a sip when he beats me to it. He seldom does.
