From An Amtrak Train...

NOTE TO THE LURKERS: Sorry folks, a lot of this isn't gonna make a
whole pile of sense, but the sentiment is sincere and you are included.

I'm on my way to San Diego to ring in the good 'ole Nuevo Año. As is
my way, I'm giving some thoughts to the year ahead (beyond the obvious
peace and prosperity for you and me and all of ours that is).
I would not dare to attempt a "year in review" post (especially on an
iPhone keyboard) and I know that each of our top ten lists would have
a few discrepancies so let's agree that 2007 has had some ups and some
downs. We've lost a friend or two and welcomed a baby or two as well,
and you don't have to be terribly wise to predict that this upcoming
year presents a strong likelihood of "more of the same". Much like
California weather predictions, tomorrow will be a lot like today,
maybe a little warmer, maybe a little cooler, and a slight chance of
precipitation or earthquake.

Okay, maybe I have no idea what my point is here, but I hope that 2008
is a little better than 2007 and not quite as good as 2009, I think
you all deserve that and a bit more.

Living My Life Faster - 8 years of JK's Daily Photo Project from c71123 on Vimeo.

This guy took a picture of himself, everyday, for eight years. As far as I can tell from his site this is an ongoing art project that will last until he dies.

I saw this on a few sites. And yes, I know other people have done the same thing. I've seen lots of different ones. This one just stuck out. I'm not sure why.

It makes me feel like a slacker when I see stuff like this. I was trying to think of something that I have done every day voluntarily for the last eight years. I couldn't even say sleep (I've been known to stay up all night driving or working, or both). Maybe I'll start something today!
Oh wait, I'm kind of busy today. Tomorrow, definitely tomorrow. Or next week? Yeah, after the holidays. Things are gonna change, I can feel it.

Xmas Shopping

I'm a bit behind on my list.
I haven't actually made my list yet.

My folks were the kind that got the wrong one of something, like the
year I wanted a dirtbike (this is when BMX was brand new) and they got
me a ten-speed. I had the last laugh of course by riding the bike like
it was a dirtbike and busting it to pieces in short fashion. Later,
when we were moving, my dad refused to pack the wreckage, deeming it a waste of time and effort. I guess I showed him...

But what about you? Can you recall a mispurchased Christmas gift? Or
the one you never found under the tree, even after asking the mall
Santa that smelled like cigarettes and anger?

Gibson Robot Guitar. I'm perplexed.

"Introducing the Gibson Robot Guitar. All you have to do is play it."

Gibson just introduced a new guitar that tunes itself. I'm not sure if I think this is cool or not. On one hand it seems kind of like the latest "rich guy guitar".
"Dude, check it out. I just got a Gibson guitar. I don't know how to play it, but I do know that it's always in tune!"
On the other hand, it brings together two very cool things. Guitars and robots.

That said, guitars and robots couldn't be more different. Robots repel chicks, and guitars have been know to attract their share of low self esteemed hotties.

Kanye West: Psychic Assassin?

After seeing a recent music video depicting Kanye West as a daredevil stunt man, Evel Knievel sued West and his record label. He claimed that the video damaged Knievel's reputation and image as a wholesome American Hero.

West met with Knievel LAST WEEK in person and the lawsuit was subsequently dropped. No money was exchanged.

Evel Knievel dies less that 48 hours after news of the meeting is reported.

Kanye West has been closely tied to personal trainer Jacob Scnavkol, a Russian national who was involved in several remote viewing and Psi-Ops projects in the former Soviet Union. Scnavkol was once overheard telling West "Here, you read minds. In Russia, minds read YOU"

This may be something floating all around these internets of ours, but this file was e-mailed to me and is a bit of a jaw dropper. It's not grizzly but there is a phrase that is usually deemed as NSFW (although I say it at work every day).

We don't get serious or political here too often but I would just like to tack on that no matter how you feel about the war, the fact is that a war is being fought, in our name, and young men and women are facing unspeakable danger and horrors and wearing our flag when they do so.

This is an update to my October 17th post.
Go here to catch up.

It's been 30 days.
I went to Target today to see if anyone had claimed the $200.
What do you think happened?

Yeah, you're right. Someone claimed the cash. That same night.

Now on one hand that could mean the person who lost the cash raced backed to Target after noticing a gaping hole in their jeans and realized they were missing two crisp $100 bills. They got to the store just as the night manager was locking up the front doors. After explaining the situation the manager reluctantly let this person in so they could check with Customer Service. Upon entry they were stunned to find out someone had actually turned in the cash. Gratefully reunited with their $200 they went home and decided to write a letter to the the good people who turned in the money to Lost-and-Found. They wrote a 3 page letter on how thankful they were for people like my wife and I. How without that $200 they wouldn't have been able to buy the medicine for their son Benji's medical condition. How it had restored their faith in humanity, and gave them hope for a better tomorrow.

But then the letter got lost in the mail because they wrote our address down wrong.

On the other hand it could mean Supervisor Girl had a really good time at the Halloween party.

Image above is not Ms. Cuenca. Or is it?

From the Central Valley Business Times.

Floribel Hernandez Cuenca, 29, and Manuel Martin Sanchez Garrido, 44, of Montclair, were arrested for selling a variety of unlicensed cheeses to the public. Ms. Cuenca was also arrested on felony cheese making charges.

The 375 pounds of seized illegal cheese included panela, queso fresco and queso oxaca varieties, the CDFA says. It was a significant find, the department says.

“Illegally produced is cheese is serious threat to public health,” says CDFA Secretary A.G. Kawamura.

Fire Story

It would be pointless to pretend that, as location independant as the internet is, The Smart Patrol has no geographic center.

Because it does.

The Smart Patrol is based in Orange County California (yes, the OC) and at the moment we are experiencing some prety intense fires. That photo was taken not 5 minutes away from Mr. Kamikaze's place.

This video is news story from San Diego, the fires are particularly bad there right now, and although they don't physically touch each other, we will all refer to their fires and our fires as "the fires" when we remember them.

So I'll admit, I watched this for some grizzly titilation. Then the reporter drops in, almost as an aside, that his family lived in the house for about 25 years. I haven't lived anywhere anything like that long, so I can only imagine that if you stay in a house for 25 years, raise your kids in that house, even try to defend the house with a garden hose, well then I'd guess that it's something you'd miss if it was gone. So it wasn't quite as entertaining as I had expected. Mr. Himmel, I'm sorry for your and your family's loss.

Our sympathies go out to all our friends, our neighbors and our perfect strangers who are affected by these fires.

My ethics don't pay very well.

How to find, and lose, $200.Last night me, my wife, and kids went to Target to get a couple of 99¢ pumpkin shaped candy buckets and a witch hat. As we're pushing our cart down one of the unpopulated Halloween isles, passing girls costumes that look too racy for an 18 year old even though they are meant for a 5 year old, I step on something sticky. I look to the floor to see what I stepped in, but my attention is immediately diverted. Two crisp $100 dollar bills folded neatly in half are right next to my foot.

I pick them up as fast as I can and show my wife.
"Check it out, we just won $200 for shopping at Target!".
My wife smiles from ear to ear (which if you knew her, is something quite rare).
But then our happiness quickly turns to dread.
My wife and I, almost in unison, ask each other, "What should we do?".
We ask each other this, but we both know what we will do.
We will turn it in.

We continue shopping. I'm dreading the moment when we go to the customer service counter and relinquish our new found fortune. I secretly hope that by the time we finish shopping we will have forgotten about the money burning an imprint in my wife's purse. If we forget, then we'll probably keep it, right? I mean, taking it back to the store would be a hassle, and things are very tight for us, and we could really use the money, and...

Of course neither of us forget. When we head over to customer service we're both hoping to see some archetype of integrity manning the counter. But no, a girl about 19 is standing there ready to help. She doesn't look shifty or anything like that, but I remember how I was at 19 and... C'mon, I was 19! My wife asks a few questions about how their lost-and-found works. Maybe she'll tell us they don't have a lost-and-found and there is no protocol at Target for reuniting people with lost items (a moral loop hole?). No, they have a great big book with names, dates and what was lost and/or found. The book appears very official. My wife asks about lost cash. The girl glances around uncomfortably. Maybe this is it! The loop hole! We can't turn it in! Then another girl (she must have been the supervisor because she looks 19 and a half) from 20 feet away says, "Just have her fill out the form and put the cash in the drawer". Awesome. I can already picture 'supervisor girl' taking the money and getting her older brother to buy a couple of kegs for the big Halloween party next week.

So as we're leaving the store I'm bummed. I didn't even get that, 'I did the right thing' good feeling. I just feel like a chump. But at least I have that gum on my shoe to remind me what a good person I am. Sweet.

In truth, even if there were no lost-and-found at Target we probably would have gone to the police station so they could have looked at us like we're idiots when we turned in the money. Why you ask? Why not keep it? Even though I know that most likely someone at the store will pilfer the cash?

This is how my brain works;
$200 dollars is a lot of money to me, and I imagine it was a lot of money to the person who lost it too. If there is ANY chance of the rightful owner retrieving THEIR money, money that THEY earned, or was given to THEM as a gift, I should try to give them that chance of getting it back.

If I don't care, why should I expect anyone else to care either?

Crowd swipes dying man's groceries

MESA, Ariz., Oct. 3 (UPI) -- The sight of an old man being hit by a truck in Arizona touched off a feeding frenzy among witnesses who allegedly stole the dying victim's groceries.

No one is going to argue that this isn't f'ed up.  Unfortunately no one is going to think that these scavengers will be tracked down and I'll agree that there are more serious crimes in the Mesa/Phoenix sweatplex than stealing groceries.  

However the people of Arizona should be ashamed of their citizenry and up in arms about this.  Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano needs to public denounce this atrocious behavior and publicly apologize that this could even happen in her state.  It is certainly not her fault (nor an opportunity for political hay-making) but her responsibility as the voice os Arizona.

Otherwise we'll have to assume that Arizona is as wretched a place as Florida.

Sorry about the rant, this is something I feel strongly about.

Cheese Friday™ : "Oh, the Humanity!"

Cheese-bearing train derails
From the Visalia Times-Delta

Railroad tracks warped, officials said, by heat caused a two-car freight train bearing mozzarella cheese to derail Wednesday north of Farmersville.

The San Joaquin Valley Railroad train was carrying cheese from the Leprino cheese plant in Hanford to Fresno when it derailed near Avenue 315 and Charter Oak Drive.

Bob Jones, crew chief of contractors hired to clean up the derailment site, said workers are trying to rescue the cheese.

Jones said 100-plus degree temperatures in the area had weakened and warped the tracks when the train passed over them at 5:15 p.m.

Cheese Friday™ : How many ways can you fry Cheese?

The 2007 Orange County Fair came to a close last weekend, but fair officials are already getting ready for next year's fair. The recently announced theme of the 2008 O.C. Fair is, "Say Cheese".

From the OC Register:
The foam Cheesehead in Steve Beazley's office says more than you'd think about the future of the Orange County Fair.
The cheddar-orange cap is a prototype souvenir for next year's fair, themed "Say Cheese!" The motif was devised earlier than ever this year, reflecting a nascent effort to plan the fair at least 18 months in advance, a departure from the normal yearlong cycle.

18 months of planning for new and improved ways of serving Cheese.

Cheese Friday™ : It's blowing up!

By now you have probably heard, the TSA has started it's all out attack against Cheese.

The TSA circulated a 13-paragraph security advisory internally. A statement posted late Tuesday by the TSA on its Web site confirms that "a routine TSA intelligence bulletin relating to suspicious incidents at U.S. airports" had leaked out to news organizations.

The bulletin says a joint FBI-Homeland Security Department assessment found that terrorists have conducted probes, dry runs and dress rehearsals in advance of previous attacks.

Possible examples of these "dry runs":

Milwaukee, June 4. A U.S. person's carry-on baggage contained wire coil wrapped around a possible initiator, an electrical switch, batteries, three tubes and two blocks of cheese. The bulletin said block cheese has a consistency similar to some explosives.

Baltimore, Sept. 16, 2006. A couple's checked baggage contained a plastic bag with a block of processed cheese taped to another plastic bag holding a cellular phone charger.
I wonder if the above mentioned cheese "tasted like radio".

I guess that's why my block of Cheddar from the UK hasn't arrived yet.
