Oh fer...it's just east of where Little Lost River joins it, of course. Good fishing in the Big Lost River, too -- lots of dustmouth bass and dun trout and sometime even a sand sturgeon has been hooked (but you can't even pull them from the water, just remove the hook and let 'em go).

Good dry flies for the Big Lost are zebra duns, black gnats, evening duns, sparse gray hackles, and tan adult caddis. I'd suggest a 10-weight rod as a minimum, with appropriate backing, line, and tippet...anything less and you might be left with a broken rod! Them fish are BIG, but you don't usually need anything bigger than a .38 if you don't plan to do catch-and-release.

I use garden worms fer small brooks and a skeeter fly on bigger water and a Green Machine or Brown Bomber on yer rivers, dependin on the salmon mood.

Long (and good) story but here's the Reader's... I was fishin longside a Tom Sellick and Ted Williams at Gray Rapids on the Main Sou'west Miramichi. Wind come up. Them lads was castin like it was calm so I stayed in. Bad move! I was lucky when the line wrapped around my head that the fly didn't pierce the skin on my forehead. Ya know what a Green Machine goin a hundred miles an hour feels like when it hits ya hard enough ta leave a clearly defined mark? I'd hafta go back and find the story I wrote years ago to get the words exactly right but the gist of it is that Ted ended up sayin sommat like... if I did sommat that stupid, I wouldn't call attention to it. I watched (from a lawn chair on the other side of the river) that man fish for hours like I was a baseball fan and the World Series was on the boob tube. True poetry in motion. Sellick was good too. There was an old guide that would fish there sometimes. Only as tall as me but everyone reeled in, gave way and watched him. Didn't take long. Guess he knew when and where and what to throw.

Directly across the river is where I first met Ted. http://www.flickr.com/photos/15565423@N05/8580132474/

6 Kg U235 + 6 Kg U235 (in 0.10 seconds or less) --> E=Mc2.

(NB: figure out the yield yourself, using the speed of light as 299,792,458 meters per second, and use only 10% or so of the total yield as the total effective yield because of the crudeness of the process.)

He could move here and never need lights again at night. The glow from the Idaho National Laboratory's reactors make additional lighting unnecessary.

At the rest stop on Big Lost River outside Arco you can see the remains of twelve (12) nuclear reactors. No one knows how many the Navy has in their bailiwick out there -- security is somewhat tight.

Need a nearly new 500 pound bomb that was only dropped once, 60 years or so ago? We've got that out that way as well! You'll have to go looking for them, but metal detecting is a fun activity AND you'll make new friends when the security helicopters land!

The Arco Desert -- fun for the entire family!

Crowded... hmmmm... maybe not. Read the Papers on Monday after ther radiation study figures are released. Fuckedupshima has gone nasty again and I understand tuna are glowing on the left coast. I suggest that A move to the right coast so he can eat shellfish laced with crude oil rather than radioactive waste. At least that will grease his old joints.

Welcome to Texas. For weeks it has been exceptionally cold and nasty and icy. It was pleasantly warm for about 3 days, but now we're in fire season - warm, dry, very windy. Those pleasant days are few and far between - unlike in San Diego, which may get very very crowded after this U.S. winter.

Hey, A, that brought a frown to my face. I'm not letting you get away with that! Please explain:

How "I've never understood people who pay money to go to places where they are surrounded by snow" is me being judgemental of anyone (other than maybe myself).

This "soggy privilege" of mine.

What "operations" have got to do with my post.

How Rap, or anyone else for that matter, is less fortunate than me.

The "tough Pocatello" lifestyle. Sounds okay here.

Pete.

Well, you live in the very center of a great deal of very soggy privilege, Peter. Don't forget that. Where Rapp lives, in Pocatello, life is more hard-scrabble, which tends to make people have operations at an early age. And escaping to a land of snow and ice which at least has some sort of lighting, even if it's just cosmic, is a welcome change from the grind of the tough Pocatello life style. Don't judge those less fortunate than you are.

When I was young and growing up, we were very poor. At that time I had several discernible flaws, but we sold them to help make ends meet. As the ends we were trying to meet were part of a Mobius strip, we were never able to do so.

Be that as it may...I have news of some import, at least to myself. On March 19 I shall undergo pain and suffering, as I shall have a partial knee replacement then (a/k/a an unicompartmental artho...never mind). Yes, they are again going to cut into me and this time will replace the material removed with metals and plastics and glues and screws. The removed material will, of course, be flash frozen and flown to the Secret US Genetic Reserve, where The Government is keeping all bodily materials removed from me for use in cloning perfect human specimens should the need to replace the human race ever arise.

If you have MY word you need nothing more!

And speaking of nothing, it was a madhouse at the Legion Hovel last evening. The annual Golden Spite Dinner was held. This event celebrates the Coming Of The Railroads To Idaho, but the original sings were spelled wrong and since they're perfectly fine after 90+ years they're just reused. Anyway, the Sergeant Of The Guard attempted to remove Boulder Ferguson, who was trying to improve the aim of his chewin' terbacky spittin'. Boulder was getting pretty good and didn't take kindly to Samuel Olivia Branson trying to shove a large cork in his mouth. Comments about the "SOB the SOB SOG" were beginning to be made, and a FULL keg of beer was thrown through the wall as I was ducking and weaving out of there.

I expect there will be police reports in the newspaper this morning. There usually are.

Now, we live across the border from a place called Moab (moe-ab)and I think that's what his shirt was promoting, BUT at first glance I wanted to run to hm, shake his hand, and say "Who ARE you? Do you know the Mother of them all on the Mudcat?!!"

    On second glance, I thought...hmmmmm, maybe a few beknighted blighters who have nothing better to do than add to the longest thread in history would like to bid for a MOAB tshirt or two in the Mudcat auction. Easy enough for me to get them, SO...if any of you puir souls are interested, please let me know and we'll get the ball rolling.:-) "

MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Jamie Coots, a snake-handling Kentucky pastor who appeared on the National Geographic television reality show "Snake Salvation," died Saturday after being bitten by a snake.

Coots was handling a rattlesnake during a Saturday night service at his Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name Church in Middlesboro when he was bit, another preacher, Cody Winn, told WBIR-TV

"Jamie went across the floor. He had one of the rattlers in his hand, he came over and he was standing beside me. It was plain view, it just turned its head and bit him in the back of the hand ... within a second," Winn said.


Well, I guess that if you don't know how to handle snakes you shouldn't be handling snakes. Me, I just pick 'em up and throw 'em away. And I do hope that the guy who got bit had clean hands cuz I wouldn't want the snake getting sick or anything.

And I start to go in the house and point to the video camera in the window and say... smile on your way out. I sometimes don't get my asking but I never waste my time.

The price is the price because it's the price. Even Jean know dat la!

I clicked on it yesterday, just didn't get around to turning down what I was listening to so I could listen to your link, gnu. I'll give it a shot later when I come back in from the garden.

I came in to see if there was any email interest in a futon I've listed on Craig's List. Lunatics seem to shop there - they call, say they're coming, then never get here. And even though the price is very low, they still want it lower. NO. You don't need to dicker all of the time, folks, just buy at at the price it is listed or go buy some piece of crap for $10 less. It's your call.

Off my soap box. . .

Ya know. I have pondered, albeit fleetingly, that all of the LHs have been silent for quite some time and I have, at times, wondered why. Which one of youse (us?) pissed off which of the LHs and silenced all of them?

If none of we did... OMG! No! No no no no no! LH found...... I dare not speak such! Oh dear. This is not good... or it might be.

Welcome home to Pocatello,
Weary, travel-tired fellow
Back home where the snow is yellow
And the sun is pale.

Back where lunch is lime-green jello
And where no-one rides a velo
Where the dogs all bark and bellow
When they catch their tails.

Home, where no-one plays the cello
Where the neighbors all say "Hello!"
Home at last in Pocatello!
At least you're not in jail.

Just a heads up in case you don't know, the archives (right hand side) keep each show for between 1 and 2 weeks so you can listen and/or download em (whole shows as well as clips) if ya miss em. With The Debaters, it's clips only but they are well worth listening to.

Yes, a blazing M across the sky -- even the Deity recognizing my greatness!

As for A being the first vowel, that's being changed. Deep in Wales there is a group of historical linguists who have proven conclusively that "A" being the first vowel is the result of centuries of English oppression and it should in the "sometimes" category. The vowels should actually read W, Y, E, I, O, U and sometimes A. Their counterparts in Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall and the Isle of Mann agree and a petition is being sent to the UN for action.
