Sure Deb, one week on the playa and it will look likes it's been on the road for 35 years. Just think how people look after being in the dust for a week. :shock:

the first car I got to drive on my own was a 64 bus. It looked a lot like that. It was stolen from an airport parking lot in 1977... I admit I was hoping it would be the one when I saw the headline. dang.

Even when that car was young, it was never a reliable vehicle for long roadtrips that involved climbing any mountains. Spent memorable days in Willits (Skunk motel) and Dunsmuir (best tasting water in the world) as a child waiting for VW parts and repairs, while on the way to Washington for summer vacations.

Easy to make a reliable van.
Just put a porsche or any other engine in one.
I hear subaru is good.
And there are others.

Exactly. I hear that there are brine shrimp/sea monkeys there. I get a little tired of the old "nothing lives out there" thing, because it's not true.

The irony in that being that if we lived forever we'd no longer have the kind of world in which extremophiles evolve.

[quote="littleflower"]i was thinking of dressing up as bad debt for halloween ... but the wall street lemmings idea is excellent...! instead of a cliff, they could look for a skyscraper to jump out of.[/quote]Irony is the essence of life. I love it and try to embrace it. Sad to say the lemming effect is a quote we can apply to human behavior...not the little critters themselves. Apparently its an urban myth. Animals are not stupid, just brave. Check it out. Google it, wikipedia it...go and watch a colony full of lemmings for a season. Its not the blind leading the blind. They migrate in mass quantities. And some die in the process. Give the lemmings the credit they deserve. "nuff said.
Oh yeah...sorry to say...to any san franciscan out there....the coit tower is not a replica of a fire nozzle. I know...I know... But it looks like one! I know!

The population cycle of the lemmings is, I recall, a four- or five-year one, so "a season" may not be long enough.

And the walls fell.

This is the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.
And the start of the velvet revolutions.

This song was the soundtrack for those events.

-
Subject: Your phone number goes public this month...!!!

REMEMBER:
Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month.

REMINDER.....
all cell phone numbers are being released
to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls.

.... YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS

To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone:

1-888-382-1222 .


It is the National DO NOT CALL list.
It will only take a minute of your time.
It blocks your number for five (5) years.

You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked....
You cannot call from a different phone number.

HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON ..
It takes about 20 seconds
I don't post things because I believe that they are the absolute truth. I post them because I believe that they should be considered.

When you call the number, "they" identify themselves as the Ca attorney general. Regardless of the current situation there has been a program by the A.G to keep telemarketers from calling people who want to be off the lists.
