Nicole,

Yea, I visited the Sun thang on the day he died. Something profound about that but I don't know what it is. Memphis is currently reeling from a damaging storm that has the local power company struggling to get around 60,000 homes back on the grid. I feel that the locals are somewhat distracted and stunned at the same time. Tornado warnings last night but all is sunny and warm today. Funeral services haven't been announced to the public anyway. The influence on me as a kid by the likes of Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee, Carl Perkins, Elvis, Rufus Thomas, and a host of others is really the basis of my early musical awakening. Phillips drove the black musical bus right to the front door of us silly little white kids homes. I am not of fan of hip hop and the Memphis sound is certainly missing from the airways these days. I have noticed that lots of performers you don't see on the west coast play here, the place still has a magnetic mecca-like draw. I am tired, loaded up my 66 Ford F100 today for the 2100 mile trip back to Santa Cruz starting at dawn. You can still here an amazing variety of music on the radio here, really amazing. Stuff you can't get in the Bay Area.

Steve,

I talked with Barry Lloyd in Paragould, the guy I bought the truck from, about your history. He is an older fellow and his mother still lives here. He wanted to know how old your folks were and I guesstimated about 70. He said that there are lots of Boyds in Paragould. The town population is about 25,000 now. Several factories have moved in here in the last couple decades and jobs are here. The culture retains what you would expect from a bible belt perspective. Very anglo here, not like Memphis at all. I can send you Barry's email if you want it. He is a pretty nice fellow and is definitely part of the culture here. I am turning into Eileen in the morning, burning up some asphalt for the next three or four days. I will check in when I stop for rest. See ya. Gotta sleep.

I hear ya Eileen; I dumped the blade even before reading yer' post. I swapped the tight-assed levis for a pair of kangaroo pocketed cargo pants that roll up in a jif. I dumped the 8oz flask also. (they always seem to attract fire water)...lets see. Oh;..the boots; ya... (lucky or otherwise) they are also history. (part of the fundamental change)... Yep;..leather sandles from here on out. They let the tootsies breath and also jive with the no sock thing and with them on instead of the boots, I wont be pegged as a pervert at the laundra-mat.(more on that later.. you gotta picture it in yer' mind).....anyway,.. Oh...I dumped the pencil and note pad; as I intend to stick to my memory and dont want to cloud any issues with facts. I may pick up a wind breaker, but for now Im' hanging onto the rain coat. (as I will need coverage while sitting wathing my clothes spin in the dryer.) I Will report in often from cyber cafes etc. On with the hunt.

Steve~ditto Jags blessing to you. Keep in mind if you do Gray Hound they may hunt out your knife and anything else they don't understand. Hardly any stations seem to do this but the big towns. Prayers go with you.

Yeah, Rena, I'd like to get a description of those pants as well. They the old style open wrap? PS Always good to check every once in awhile to verify ones reality and choices, ain't it. Yep, travel's not what it used to be. It's enough to try the patients of a saint..or make one of you!

Hi Eric. The entries for July 1- July 26 have disappeared. there's no link.

anyway, back on Maui and grateful to be here. Meeting Steve in NYC was one of the highlights of my trip. along with meeting my new grandson "BeenJammin."

got caught in an NYC bomb scare scenario on Monday, caught in the traffic jam for the councilman shot at city hall last Thursday, , and in the jam over Cecilia Curz (is that her name) funeral on a Tuesday. bio family drove me crazy and i was again reminded why i left home and sought out an alternative community.

Peace to all, r n a

Mark; my dad's dad was Robert (Bob) Boyd. Mom's dad was Charlie Kirkland. Dad's mom's kin were Fosters from Georgia who were connected to the Weatherfords as well as the MacGillivries who had Creek blood early on and Mom's side were tied into the Kentuky branch of the Huckabees who were part Blackfoot. According to my genetic back ground its a wonder that I havent scalped anyone yet. Oh, I just got an e-mail from a great cat that I was busted with at the Die-In. I told him to hit the guest book. He was in S.F. in the mid 70's. Give him a warm welcome.

News Flash from a digger in Memphis! Poindexter is going down over the terrorist futures market plan. He is poised to resign tomorrow. Are the cracks beginning to show in the pot that holds this crap together?

Steve,

I was in Paragould today. Bought the truck I came to see and now waiting out the bad weather here in Memphis to plan my return to the best coast. I forwarded your history in the area tonight to the fellow I bought the truck from and will talk with him about it when I return to pick up the truck tomorrow or the next day. He is an old timer and may well remember some your story. Beale Street sucks almost much as the carnival at Graceland. Elvis Schmelvis. These are the cheesiest tourist scams I have been conned into seeing.

Hammond,

I got your message about the 3rd Page today and I need to do some tuning up on it. I will get it back to you after I get back to Santa Cruz. Thanks again.

Happy Trails Steve! Keep your powder dry and

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Hey...sorry about that MUGU. I scrolled down and saw that you got to that guestbook first; so..I either followed you, or Im' that much further ahead of you. (???!!!). Well folks; It's down to the wire. I gave everything away to street vendors except Nik's bed. Im' ridin' legally Clyde outa' here with nothin' but a rain coat, pair of lucky boots, button fly levis, linen shirt and Greek style sailors cap. As part of a fundamental change: I dumped the I Ching for good this time but kept the inside rice paper leaflet page with chineese writting and inscriptions to wrap around my cold hard cash. The answers I want arent' the written kind. I plan on seeking them in every set of eyes that I see. Heres the break down: I have three pieces of ID wrapped in a waxed papper envelope, a Camillus rigger's marlin spike knife, small pocket flask w/ funnel, a pocket sized mole skin travel journal and a Koh-I-Noor 0.7mm rapidomatic pencil w/ spare leads, a P.O. Box key and Clyde's chain lock key. From here I plan on stream-lining as I go. Hell....who needs a rain coat, Hu Rena??? Ya, screw the rain gear...see; I told ya that I was gonna stream line from here. Speaking of line... hope to see ya all further down the line. Happy Trails. P.S. Dont you kids... Ah fuck it. I want all of you kids at home to try this. (at least once in yer' life). Build some character. I dare ya'.

Eileen and Miranda, where are the both of you. we miss ya'll. we are both here in california and anxious to get together and say hello again. You have both become dear friends to us in fact the only friends we have and truly need you both in our lives. Please write me and let me know you received this note. We miss you so much but we are glad we got out of NM. It's been kind of hard lately, Vermont didn't work out so we are back on the west coast and glad. So a Digger you are? How about that. I want you to know that it's not your past, or who you know, or what you've done in your life; none of that matters to us/me we clicked as friends and a friendship that last is hard to come by. Miranda Neil really misses you too. Thanks for helping back in NM and packing up our stuff for us to. Thank you Miranda for being careful to pack Neils stuff so carefully. We are getting help here in california now we've go to decide where we are going to live and just get there. Please write soon and I hope the both of you are doing ok and have found your place in the screwed up world. Peace and Blessings, friends always and hope to see ya'll soon. I still can't belive your website. WOW!!!

Jed (and all who dare to read!) -

here is the link to Frater Choronzon's presentation to the Golden Dawn Society of Thelemic Magick (1990) see: "Doctor Farquharson's Radio" regarding my late mate and to whom I think you are referring. His madness was unique - until you factor in the likes of Syd Barrett.

"Speculation Blues"

The bulk of DARPA's stock and trade

was exposed in yesterday's papers -

but who wants them?

Homeland (in)Security is risky a speculation.

The terror market might fall-out,

the bottom line might well disappear,

and only the (over)seers of 'schismet'

will have profited from the remains

trading online predictions of terror

guessing in the dark of DARPA that

encourages the future(s) holders

to bet heavily on themselves -

after all, they know the timetables.

How scary to have a government like a bunch of preteens who ate too many donuts and came up with a really bad idea like terrorism futures and then didn't even have the sense to think that was an awful idea lets forget it immediately. They've been standing in the Krispy Kreame line too long.

Hey MUGU; I see that ya' followed me over to the Mourningstar guest book...It's only fitting I imagine;..as I get the distinct feeling that "Your' friends baby; treat you like a guest".....and "In your' head; baby, Im' afraid you dont know where it is"...I stop short at calling you names: in-a-smuch as I dont know your's and dont want to. If its you Sponge, I really think that you need more than help. Your' alter-egos are hiding behind the skirts of your' alter-egos. Ive' heard of being pussy-whipped, cock-whipped but Ego-whipped???...and as far as the above J/A near-quotes; you fill in the rest. How could anyone be that unloved???!!!

My personal Congrats go out to all of the NYC A-7 and M-27 folk who keep walking free due to solidarity, rightiousness and pure balls. (some real tough overies in the mix also)... special thanks to the unsung teen-agers in the group. There is hope yet. Coalition group representatives, leaders and those in for the long-haul will meet Sunday, Aug. 3rd in the back parlor of Washington Square Parish House 133 West 4th Street, NYC. If the crowd swells, we can jump over to the Sanctuary or Day care facility. Free food and drink provided by those mythical beasts: THE DIGGERS.

Hey Jenn; my E-Mail is silentsteveboyd@hotmail.com and snail mail is: Steve Boyd 7 East 8th Street, Suite 369, NY,NY 10003. My Bro is in Boise Idaho at the moment and my jump back to Eurika soon, (where he was). If he does make the move I may hook up with him. He's got a Hep-C jones after sucessfully cutting off a thirty year Alchodelic binge (just before his liver almost turned to jelly.) I was never a good drinker;...but Stan; well,..we was an expert. He' one lucky cat. I sure would like to be there for him at this juncture of the trip. He's one tough bastard but his pride will be the death of him. Once in Eurika, I could reunite with my original 1957 Zen Friend. We've been doing snail mail and he's a state worker turned shut-in who I would love to liberate. Theres so much escapism in our generation. Think I may go on a sojourn to wake a few folks up. As far as the Eurika scene; heats not an issue, as Im' law abidding for the most part. In fact, Ive matured to the point (in the last several hours) that Im' going to contact the IRS and the State of New Hampshire and get a payment program squared away in order to spend my later retirement with no paperwork dig? (my SSI will pay that shit off)...(The Government paying off the Government)...only in America!!!...(dont you kids try this at home)..Hey, Nik; I havent moved your' bed down yet, as another group is crashing for a few days,,,will do it tommarrow in any event. Later all.

Hey Mark; as a Yankee child I spent some fantastic summers around that neck of the woods. In fact I became a crack shot with my favorite (the 22Cal.) during that period. My dad could light stick matches with one. We were Remington folks; but I learned on a Winchester bolt action. My parents both attended Paragould High. The Boyd Farm was in Rector Arkansas. My Granpa Boyd was a very well know hunting guide and famous coon-hunter in those parts. He raised champion coon hounds. As achild I remember lying on a coon skin rug made from a single pelt. Now; granted,..I was small; but even the big folks said that it was the largest ever seen (the rug you fool, the rug)...anyway, He led Bankers, Lawyers and Pro Base ball players from Memphis Tenn. on some wild ass coon hunts for sure. He sold one dog at the heigth of the depression for an amount that was unheard of at the time. He raised and trained mule teams also. In fact he farmed by mule teams until well after WWII (where by keeping several share croppers and farm hands well fed and working.) His prize Mule teams also sold for record amounts of money. It was said that he tamed them to the point that women and kids could lead them. (Well...Boyd Women and Boyd children anyway)...Lots of kin buried down there, Crockett Co. Tenn., Dyer Co. Tenn. and of course Clay Co. Ark. Check out the fire flies at night.

I just heard on MacNeil Leher that the Futures market for terroist activities, lets bet on the next assasination attempt on Yasir Arafat, was brought to us buy none other than the folks at DARPA, via the pentagon, the same folks Hammond had the foresight to out. These are some seriously bent folks.

Hell, I just set up shop here in Memphis. Staying in the less than she-she Graceland district near the airport tonignt. Rain and muggy clouds and heat. Thanks to somebody for airconditioned rooms. Tuned in some pretty funky music on the rental car radio here, I am gonna slide by the Sun Studios tomorrow just because. Fucking airport was dripping with barbeque stands the smell was all over the place. Do you think I can deal with Beale Street and the tourist traps? I have to go up into the north east end of Arkansas to Paragould to check out a vintage Ford soon.

Jed - humm.....I just sent you another e-mail (test run only) to see if it bounces back again. Maybe I copied it incorrectly. Sorry about misnomering you ala "the dud who had the pictures of Emmett" Your comment below adds to the chance of our having perhaps met in London.

"a very strange brit with a strange name" - (laughing to myself) and indeed I did run with a few. I think you are refering to the late and illustrious Robin Farquharson (author of "Drop Out"). Robin was mad of course, as well as a (once) well respected mathmatician - and unquestionably one of the brightest minds I have ever encountered. But then he was as I say - quite mad. When the building burned to the ground - the flames took Robin as well. He was reportedly at the attic windown giving an oration to the crowed below until the building collapsed.

The purple basement you refer to is also rather possible

Howard Marks - indeed I know the name well - yet I tried to stay away from this monied crowd - as well as the fellows well met surrounding Auden but following my reading at London University I avoided the Oxford crowd all together..

So then jed - what were you doing at the time - and now?

Portland has at last joined the civilized world! According to the most news worthy item to hit town in years ever since Sunday morning a crowd of people (over 200) have been waiting in line for the pinnacle of cultural excellence to open its doors. Yes Krispy Kreame has arrived.

I am amazed at how little people have to do or hope for. Too spend two days waiting for a donut? What can be so monumental about a saturated confection of sugar and lard? Portlands provincial mindset is showing which is not all bad, but a freaking donut? Not to mention the local news is treating this as though the Mona Lisa has just arrived for an extended stay.

Shortly after the Loma Prieta earthquake in October 1989, Bill Graham held a benefit in Oakland for the victims of the quake...

Sitting back stage at that event, in a room with about 8 other people including Taj Mahall and Susan Lydon, David Getz and others, Bill walked in with someone. Now, I have never been one to be star struck, but an amazing thing happened when Bill brought this particular gentleman into that room, we all automatically stood up out of respect...for it was the one and only Bob Hope...he was absolutely gracious. warm and friendly. A remarkable human being...He clearly stated that he hated war...but supported the troups, wanting to do what he could to bring some bit of happiness in their horrifying circumstance of war. Bob Hope, Thanks for the memories...

Back from Back East just in time to do some needed cleanup of the page. Will have to tackle the FFR next.

Sorry, Steve, had only one day in NYC, spent the rest of the time with octogenarian parents, including a last minute picnic for the beautiful summer weather on Saturday the day I had planned to come visit you. But I couldn't help thinking it was far better to take the parents to their favorite outdoor natural haunt than to indulge my Manhattan love affair. See you next trip. The one day I did indulge was to follow up Nicole's suggestion of Brighton Beach. All summer I have been longing to lay on a beach somewhere and that one perfect day at BB was my wish come true. Thanks, Nicole. I loved the people on that beach. No hipper than thou, younger than cow crowd. It was a pleasure to share some sand with the Brooklyn neighbors.

Why does Mugu think anyone is interested in his vandalism?

Eric -

Seems like a Muguspamic barrage has taken place. The page downloads - but only to Mugu's moniker. And then of course every thing runs off the page

Hey jed - well this is possible as I did live in London 70-71 off Kensington Hight Street. - I tried your e-mail address but it is a dud

Are you a dud - or are you jed wainright who might have met me in London 70-71?

Hammond I think we met in kensington london crrca 1970-71 if you are the Hammond Guthrie i remember

Hi i remember back in 1970 i was working with David Essex when i first came across a very intense but talented band who had just decided to call themselves Queen.They were sat round discussing personal names for the band members and all agreed that they could use their own exept for Farookh Bulsara(for obvious reasons)he wanted to be named after one of the planets and venus was his preference .Like today first names are subject to fashion and Freddie wasn't very in at the time so Freddie venus was rejected. Brian suggested Roger- after Roger Daltry- and Freddie went for his second choice "Uranus" however thats were I stepped in and said you cant call yourself Roger Uranus, its to long! fortunatly they all agreed and they settled on Freddie Mercury. I have pics on my pc of this meeting just email me and I will send a jpeg

Eileen...another writing suggestion that someone recently gave me and it's so helpful, is in doing yr history...make notes in 5 year increments...it's not so overwhelming then and just jot down the major things that come to yr mind... then memories surrounding stir up...I remember when Sweet William got shot and had amnesia if we told him something that had happened he would then begin to remember the surrounding time...I also put old addresses in Mapquest and when the grid of the block comes...voila, specific memories pop up and clarify...very useful tool...playing music from a specific time crystalizes stuff too...smell as well...

Zooming by folks. Finally sent email to Security (not!) CO to the car place that houses the friendly sexual predator I had to deal with. I'm still a bit rattled from addressing this and need to get outside and get some clear air in my head. But wanted to say hi and thanks for the writing advice. 3 hrs huh. Some folks in my family would call that wasting time. Guess that's why so many authors thank their families for their support and patience..? I would love to write 3 hrs a day! Are you kidding?

Patrick..Bo Diddly..what was that about. He played for my Sr Prom ('60), up close and personal. He was so drunk he was laying down flat with the mike, then his guitar, on top of him..and still playing great. I grew up with black blues. We NEVER would have had a white band for anything. What for? I realized yrs later what incrediable music I grew up with that never made it out of the south. Bo and all recorded were the tip of the iceberg and not necessarily the best either! OK they were all great..but there was SO much more.

off to job hunt

I saw the 60 minutes piece and yeah he said just that, irate librarians managed to embarass Harper Collins into publishing "Stupid White Men" after they had pulled the plug on it right after 9/11 seems they wanted a re-write to clean up all the anti Bush rhetoric and Michael refused then he read an excerpt at a library and the librarian was incensed when he explained why it never was published, she got her friends on a librarian chat room/web site to harass Harper Collins and Bam, number one best seller, like they regret publishing it now! I read it last year and it is a great fucking book, Jeb Bush comes off as a bigger A-hole than G.W. if thats possible. Also, a must see, "Bowling For Columbine" an automatic classic.

Personally; I didnt want to bring Bush up. (now or ever)...the fuck never E-Mailed me).. missed some solid advice. Where the hell is that Imperialist pig gonna' get us bogged down next??..hey, big day in the A/M. Gonna represent the Nations Mutes at the M27 Press Conference. Also gotta tell the gang to maybe get Rev. Hooper to open up for em' on the 3rd. I'm goin' to see my natural children and grandson from the 1st to the 13th. Moving Nik's bed to the first floor also. The new Sexton is grabbing my 4th floor room. I will most likely haunt the pews until blast off. I will re-stock the depleated free courned clothes rack with a variety of rags that Ive' pulled from it. What goes around comes around. I heard that Micheal Moore really made a hit on 60 Minutes. Told how his best seller (Stupid White Men) was all but squashed until some heavy web-site to web-site amoung some Irate Librarians turned it all around. Powerful tool this web. Hope they dont ban it as a Home-Land Security foe. Yep...The Zeros are gonna keep that Ol' Flint boy right on top. He's got my vote. The man is sane.

After about three blocks I was cleansed..and not by the rain. Hey Ohio Girl; according to Ol' Omar, here's whats comming down pronto: after the seven year dance of Uranus and Pluto, (ending in 2011)..the world will be in a very different condition politically and socially. Uranus in Pisces should stir up mucho upheaval and innovation..(the birth of Mormonism and Christian fundamentalism is an example of this pairing. Pisces rules the underdog, the enslaved and the disenfranchised (no names please)..whose status was raised in previous Uranus Pisces periods. The last time these two teamed up was in the early 20th century from 1919 to 1927, during the "Roaring Twenties". The mesh signaled the "Jazz Age". The "Lost Generation" of writters began publishing and socially, the down-and-out triumphed. The gals won the right to vote in 1920 and Gandi started fucking with the Brittish in India. The flip side was Boot-legger Wars, the Mafia's secret "Cosa Nostra" and the roots of the IRA. Also: Pluto in Sagitarious (until 2008) should pull all of us away from our quest for aquiring wealth to a journey for the meaning of it all via interconnecting with one another on spirituality (outside of traditional religions), philosophical, and intellectual levels. Saturn in Cancer: We must put in the time in order to get the pay off. Very restrictive vibes..but the reward is maturity. (about time)..so, in clossing; a name for this era or decade??....hows this?...in as much as a zero denotes the absence of quality, quantity and mass,..lets start by calling it the TWOS. OK,..that makes this Two Three,..get it?..or maybe the TWIN decade. (Ahhh Looookkk..."TTWWWIIINNNSSS!!!!!.....hell, I dunno',..knock it around abit. How about you Sponge??..any input???

Seriously it has always bugged me in a small way, concerning people talking about the years 1900 to 1999, there are cool phrases like the twenties, and yeah the James Cagney roaring twenties, the thirties. But you have to say "between 1900 and 1909" or "between 1910 and 1919" the "teens" would sound stupid, and it's even more awkward now that we have 2000, 2001 etc. I'm looking for a neat phrase about this stuff. "The turn of the century" was one way to describe 1900-1920 I guess. The zeros, the roaring zeros......zeros is a blank slate maybe that's a good thing.

The Ohio farms are awesome to look at right now, they are at the peak of green abundance and aliveness (I bet upstate NY is the same). To see an Amish man taking a team of horses into the barn as dusk approaches, really disorients you about time and the zero years of a new millenium. The "government" that is already trying to f... this up seems so theoretical at a moment like that.

And we have to pay for gas to light the stove! They "Burn-Off" the methane from dump fires for years. (thats because they cant put them out).. Up in smoke. Go figure. Hey I watched the Television today and saw a show on the growing bicycle culture in the USA and how they are fighting for their share of streets etc. That may be my next cause.

Hey Ohio Girl; just checked out yer' photo's on the Morningstar site... wow...I mean WOW. The June before last I bussed through Ohio and realized just how long it had been since seeing real family farms. Funny how each generation has the notion that they invented farming and fucking...Oh; there goes my mouth again..I had met a whole bunch of Mennonites here in NYC who were from those parts. I was kicking around between Bellview, McAuleys and the Bowery Mission. Those folks bus in all the time to sing for the local down-trodden. They do a mono-tone voice thing thats very angelic. Hey,..back to the "Ranch" thing; .. you may remember Onanda. It wouldnt take too much research to find the life magazine photo of the crowd scene at Altamont. She showed me the pic back in early 70. She can be clearly seen with her man. Of couse, posting it without her permission could back-lash. (as she very well may be Sister Onanda of Mercy by now)... you know how that goes. Oh,.. as far as the "Roaring Zeros".. there's alot of planetary activity that corresponds with that era. The original Lost Generation of actors, writters, poets, artists, bootleggers, and racket-men spun out of it. Hell; prohibition is even on the re-bound. Here in the city, you knock twice, tell em' that Joe sent ya' and then slip into a "Smoke-Mill"...screw the gin;..ciggarette girls in fish-net stockings working the Isle. Well, gotta go. Hey, you look great. (great folks look great)...but you knew that.

Jenn,

Being "We" is a complicated matter for contemporary society built on psuedo-individualism and "overcoming" nature and "harnessing" its power. What drives humans to need dominance over all things? Sitting in a traffic jam the other day behind a minivan sporting a religious bumper sticker reading "My God is awesome" implying that any other is not, said more than its driver realized. The "we" implied by that bumpersticker is not an inclusive context but one of dominance over others. "We" win, you lose, fuck you. I don't think "we" have moved off the medival plane much. My "WE" and yours are weeds, crickets, wind, beatific mutes, nomadic female bus drivers, gardeners, half-assed comodified Diggers like myself, and anything else that lives or exists in this reality. I feel as much a fellow traveler with the caged elephant at the SF Zoo as the redtailed hawk circling over the bluff near my house. The majority of humans still seem unable to make that step. The only thing that appears to draw "americans" together is violence and consuming. To me it seems so easy, just change your mind, accept being part of it all and get on with it.

Wow, in spite of feeling pretty much like crap I've been listening to Jag's sensational CD, I've been having a grand old time in New York and hearing music in Asheville and eating in a luxurious garden in these pages lately. Don't we got fun! Roaring Zeros now, I like that! There's never been much of a name (in any century) for the years 00 to 19. So now, what to call 11 to 19?? Morningstar......there are 2 pictures of me (Fran) in the scrapbook on the bottom of page IX. Rena I hope you'll be posting baby pictures somewhere!

Writing.....I always wanted to. I always wanted to write nonfiction, philosophy or biography or something. Never really wanted to write fiction, but then a friend got me into trying it and becoming a confessions writer. "Moral porn" one of my kids calls it! Really the stories aren't porn sorry it's not that exciting. Anyways, writing these stories is teaching me a tremendous amount about writing, first of all that I love it, I always wondered why it didn't go smoothly like this, fiction seems to come much easier (to me). Second of all, that maybe now I could write other stuff too. Peace

Namaste, I want to share, because I would give you all a helpiing of this day if it were in my power. I know not everyone is driven by need to grow healthy food, or given the gracious gift, resources or the land, but I must say that the satisfaction of growing ones own meal is beyond words. The gratitude I feel running my fingers through the rich soil, with the birds singing, the dragonflies gliding, bumble bees humming, humming birds chirping and screaming through the air, cats lolling, dogs resting in the shade from chasing EXTREME wildlife through the woods. I wish I could send you each a flower from my gardens, mixed with veggies and vines. I would bestow the world a feast if only it were in my power. Each strawberry, every blueberry, every last succulent huckleberry, thimble berry, himalaya, I would conger you up some jam to spread on your toast in the early dawn. Steve, there is that dawn again, persistant one. The coast is so fertile and abundant, my belly is full, my soul is balmed, I'm off to a deeply earned slumber. We really would benefit by sharing more of the land with those of like mind. The digger dream is that of hope? Is that of sharing? Caring? for the earth? For the tribe? For the humanes? I teeter twixt the sublime graceful pleasure of fresh chard, herbs, carrots and beets...and the despair of the hungry, worn, battered sisters and brothers of this earth. Will we ever get the fucking picture? An Aside: Our town now boastfully recycles any plastic. Yeah for that....? NO! The shredded, bundled bales go directly by ship to China for the processing of the polar fleece the americans are so fond of, and proud to be using "recycled" plastic...the workers of these factories are mostly young girls and women who are disposable, by means of this disgusting unregulated polluting practice. So, to combat this...do not buy any shit you don't really NEED especially in that plastic crap that has a number higher than a TWO.2. night all...

Hey Hammond; I just reviewed alot of the Third Page stuff that you've compiled,..excellent,..great show-case. After I establish a writter's get-a-way up in Calaias;(Ive' given up art).. I could never match the images that folks conger up in thier heads upon digesting the written word.. (although, Henry Miller pulled the water color thing off with-out a hitch)...Hmmm..anyway..after I get grounded and survive my first winter I'm entertaining the Idea of putting together some Digger Yin-Yang take-offs (Boroughs's cut-up style with a touch of Boydism added to the mix) to alot of the like-minded collective soul thats flooding down the pipe-line which in my mind, seems to be begging to be dissected by not just any run-of-the-mill Dr. Frankenstien.

I am not the author of any published writings except here, maybe .. But I know a few literary people .. (and of course, there are all kinds of manuals & advice on how to write, to sell your writings, etc.) .. But what I would mention is a little book called "Finding the Center" by I believe V.S. Naipaul .. the crux is: to tell a story ( any story, including the story of your life ) first thing is to find the center, the turning point, the 'McGuffin' if you will .. & then the rest is easy. Story as meditation .. find this text & tell me I'm wrong.

Eileen - Much like life "it" (your book/story) is a play without a plot and you begin now - heading anywhere you like. What happened inbetween is the story - what happens now is the story and what happens next is the story. Plenty of life actors to include my dear so characters won't be hard to find. Didn't we already find a title of some sort? "Computer Fried Prose" I think. Just go to work girl..... That is how you do it. But you have to keep doing it...... and doing it..... at least 3 hours a day min. until you have a first draft to work with.....Write anytime....

Oh this coming to the library for computer time is starting to drive me nuts! I just scanned this page from the bottom up and I am so frustrated not to be able to jump into the flow the way I so badly wish. As soon as I get a job will get my internet connection. In the meantime..yes Jag, you found me.

 

I just did a liver cleanse and wasn't up to the treck over here yesterday. I can't belive what came out of my body (sorry folks) and how much clearer my head is..so I expect my energy to follow suit. I knew this trip..road food and Motel 6 pet friendly rooms, and housecleaning chemicals would take their tole..yep. I am now starting a worm and parasite (that was kind of ass backwards but I was in a hurry) to take care of the Motel 6 stays, dairy, and meat. Eating any more has become down right dangerous for me. Heck being in a body is dangerous. Ha!

Anyway the library is closed for the wkend..so have a good one yall. Just know I keep an internal dialog with you ALL (am dying to get down with the UFO, crop circle reporter) and am chopping at the bit to jump in deeper.

PS..I was told once again today I should be writing a book. I just don't have a clue where to begin. Any thoughts out there, how to get a clue to even the topic? Can't figure out what to try to wrap my mind around. As all of us have had enough of a life..not to mention simply One Day!..how does one do this? Waht's the story?

Patrick .. hope you check back here today (Fri. 25th July) .. Bo Diddley's playing tonight, 9 PM, not Saturday .. details on the festival in the Mountain Express or Asheville Citizen-Times, both available on the internet .. I might be there, not sure, I don't like being around crowds much anymore .. but they sure know how to throw a party so nevermind my old-man attitude .. great food & a really really great street party .. One tip would be, take the shuttle bus in ($2/roundtrip) either from Asheville Mall or K-Mart on Patton {W. A-ville} .[Parking will not be an option downtown.] Other musical groups I can recommend -- Buncombe Turnpike (4-part harmony on some wonderful old-timey & bluegrass material) .. Ashley Chambliss (piano & vocals, her own original material, a great vocalist .. think Ricki Lee Jones) .. Jimmy Landry .. Ghost Mountain (blues out of Satchmo, channeled thru Memphis, with a little detour thru the Delta) .. wear a hat if you're going, I'll have on a Panama with a black ribbon & I'll look for ya.

Hey Rena,.. I just checked out that hippie museum site and ya!!! Char~* does some good-vibe stuff alright!. Sorry to hear about Allan;..thats the trouble with rapping on this guest (quest) book; everything slides by so fast... anyway;..I Hope that Allen makes it in more ways than one. (and here I was punchin' on my liver the other night)...Ya, right... guys!!..wanna impress the girls??..punch yer' liver a few times. Wham... a few real good stabs! Hey... back to Calais for a minute.. I understand that they have a collage up there where I could maybe sit in for awhile,..maybe learn something. Kinda' start off where I left off in 69. Close the hoop, so to speak. I dont know. Up late...no one to talk to; even if I could. Eileen;.. you up???

Hey Eric;..let me know when you plan on hitting town. As I was telling Rena;.. I dont get out much. Hey, I cant get my mind of of the north country....I just found out that Calais was at one time dubbed Main Street USA on account of US Highway No. 1 starting from there. I knew an old con from Copper Harbor Michigan (upper penninsula) where Old Highway 41 started...but I dunno' what they called that place....he shot his finger off with a 25. automatic while running through the woods one night hand cuffed. He was chased down and tackled by the first female officer in that neck of the woods. I think she was French-Indian. It was very romantic; the moon-light, the trees, the snow,...the way he told it. ...something about her ripping part of her blouse off in order to wrap up his bleeding hand... and the long walk back. I can picture George Clunney starring in that scene. Well,..it's all unfolding at this end;..the end is becomming a begining...and none-to-soon either. Drop me a line. We can do somethin'... maybe roll our pant legs up and walk in the rain.

As I said I will swing up for a short stay at my son's place and see whats cookin'. Must return to NYC by Aug. 14th to cover a shift. Will E-mail and write from up there most likely. Wow,..I never figured out whether stickin' yer' pants up yer' ass like that was an attempt at keeping yer' clothes dry or to get yer'legs wet...but who cares??!!,...the crowd liked it! You were a real tourist attraction. Those legs..wow!!! It was like a Heafty Bag commercial gone 50's. A dancing trash bag. Folks, it was like a 55 gallon condom with a ten quart reservoir tip. She called it a "hooded poncho". (I asy she picked it up in the Valley of the Jolly Green Giant. Man; those legs!!...Nik will back me up on this:..I sank to my knees in the church foyer and kneeded, strocked and patted them. (and that was before greeting her hello)...oh, those legs. On our way up to check my mail, Rena pointed out some Infamous local hang-outs where she used to teeny-bop. Hey Nik; your' hair looked lovely. It shows off your' facial bone structure. Cant wait to settle in up at Calais. Maybe Free the place up a bit. Who knows...maybe they could us a good-will ambassador.

had a great evening with Professor Boyd last night. Look forward to our next conversations. I'm hoping to get by for another visit before heading back to Maui. Will you be around tomorrow afternoon, Steve? I'll be treading through a shopping blitz with my daughter in SoHo and hope to steer the energy over to positively 4th street. I'm hoping to just aim down to the vegetarian restaurant across the street from your digs when we arrive in the city, and stop by your place first. i'm expecting we'll be in the area around noon. Nicole, too bad you had to leave so soon. I wanted to hear you sing and i know we have lots of magical stories and adventures to share.

Steve, thanks again for a memorable night. I enjoyed our walk in the concrete rainforest. next time on maui!

hope to see you before my flight Tuesday. with Aloha, Rena

Nicole,

I thank you for the effort you made as well. Making connections for Ohio Girl and acting on opportunities to further a mutual context lies really at the core of the Digger legacy. A very elegant act. Each one teach one. That is the prevailing response at Planet Drum (PB/JG) to the present shit mess this culture is in. In conversation a week or so ago, PB very eloquently described the power of an individual act and the ripple effect it can have . In a replay of Les Diggers de San Francisco a few days ago I got the whole thing again. Eileen, at the risk of speaking for PB which is always dangerous, I hope that answers your earlier question about what their response to it all is. The song remains the same. I am still only 1% Free but I am working on the other part too.

Eileen,

In reference to the need to move, I mean just start moving, I am afflicted with or genetically predisposed to the same tendency. I have learned or have been conditioned to temper it but I know that I have to trust my own voice. When that nomadic voice raises to the forefront of my generally chaotic inner conversation I know it's time to get on the highway. Once in 1991 or 2, after suffering a severe case of job burnout in the local trauma center, I drove non-stop from Ben Lomond (Santa Cruz, Ca) to San Antonio, hung a right down to Corpus Christie, out over the bridge to Padre Island and hung a left over to Port Aransas, straight to the shrimp fleet dock, bought bag of freshly caught big ole shrimp, bought a bottle of wine, checked into a campground nearby and cooked killer plate of scampi, drank the wine and went to bed. I had no idea that I would end up there but I had to go.

Nicole,

I saw that story a while ago on CNN's website. Reminds me of the Mayor Moscone/Harvey Milk murder in SF City Hall. BTW, we out here have been without smoking in public places including bars and restaurants for some years now and it is well accepted by the majority. At first there was a backlash but it died down rather quickly. When I still worked at the hospital I sometimes would go outside for some air, and be amazed to find smokers standing in the rain puffing away. Several of them were Respiratory Therapy Techs. My Daughter just returned from NYC and loved it but she said smoking is more prevalent there than in Dallas. In later years when I was working for Ford I noticed about 4 years ago that they were eliminating ashtrays and lighters from some of their new models. Times change. They now offer a "smokers option" if you want it equipped that way.

Nic - Excellence in motion my dear - eh what Ohio Girl? Nic is right on the pulse - the heart beat that somehow surrounds us all,

Ohio Girl - and all who dislike your spamic drudgery - postini.com is very -very good. I have used their filters for 2 years and only on rare occasion do I get a spammed message in my actual mailbox - like one or two a month. All of the defered spam goes to a file at postini (virus possibles are listed sep.). I get around 200 non-virus letters a day from relatives of the Abacha family trust in Nigeria, salespam-verts offering immediate ways to engorge my memer(ship), tips on how make oodles and oodles of money at home and of course all the porn anyone could ever not want! - with postini this is all very easy to dump - or read if I want to - and easy to sep. out any you want to deliver to your mail box at home. Highly reccomended!!!

(Maybe not "we" specifically, but we the group who have never settled in quite right since then, not most of us).

Well; It was the final straw: Yep..Im' a sun-rise boy and she's a sunset girl; I demanded her to get out!...she curled up on the couch and smiled. I suggested that we settle it by sitting back-to-back. No dice. She lulled me with tales of Einstine, whale songs and water babies. Looking rather dapper: in a Village sort of way,.. I hailed a cab on 6th Avenue pointing to Rena all-the-while to keep them from zooooming by. (but thats another story). Theres alot to be said about spending an evening talking to a lady. I never knew what I was missing. You folks gotta try it. On that note, I look forward to sitting down with each and every one of you in this life time... whether up in Calais, here in NYC, or out on the coast. Its a date. You too Sponge.

They are hosting a black tie event and selling tables for between 10,000 and 50,000$ and have sold over 350 tables so far. My friend Julia is married to Willie Nelsons bass player and so of course they will be playing and another patient of Dr. Bacon is Naomi Judd,(she will be performing also)any way they called me to get in touch with Peter to see if he'd be interested in participating (Willies suggestion) I say all that to say this, Julia said that Dr. Bacon is the number one specialist and hep c researcher and that he is wonderful about helping people out who are having a difficult time of it (in terms of healing or financially) She said he is willing to travel also and that as a favor for my helping her on this event, she'd have him call me...but I'm Okay so I'd like to have him call you...you up for that? let me know...Maybe he can help you...let me know

Hey Eileen, in my day (as a rubber bum)..while thumbing mother road; snitch poles (CB antenas) were the dead give-away. But on that note; they were only used to detect the heat. What with 99% of the population in today's snitch-society; the American public (spell that p-u-b-i-c) ARE the heat. Walking, jogging and driving around with a cell phone glued to their ears, its odd, un-natural and un-nerving. It puts a whole new cyber-slant on the hick-term "Yer not from around here..are ya??!!" and/or "You might know where yer' goin'..but I dont think ya' know where ya are!!!" Watch yer back out there kid. I know that I will. Calais is calling. I hope that in our own ways; we can all find our own private Olema.

Hey Hammond; it was me playing Moses. Really, the Money and Prestige thing is motivating and thats about all. It takes more than drive. But think about it;..if it was a ghanga sosiety and we all swapped dope for goods; the elders would be saying: dont chase after the "Almighty Dope" (instead of "Dollar"). Its basic symbolism; or; to an extreme "Idolism". The money is (like all Idols) hollow. I hope that the youngens on site didnt take it wrong. Its the core that counts. Got to get to the root. (OK girls:... The Garden). More than enough TV evangalists already. What was I thinkin'???...Hey: Ive' got some terrific news of a personal nature; but am keeping it personal..(that's a first). Although Calais will be home port, I was just informed via snail-mail that I will always have a snug harbor in the land-locked mid-west. The love involved is also unconditional. Thats a first.

Eric and Mark~Glad you could glean something of use from this journey of mine. I do feel when I move like that I'm on a mission into the heart of more than my own for whomever cares to look at it beyond their own notions of what I'm about. This is a rather sore issue for me (could you guess? ha). There is a poem James Koller/Kohler? wrote that Michael Terria put to music (anyone remember?) that I have always totally identified with. In it he talks about the difference of those bound to the land and those that roam it (it's a very intense poem and I would really love it if a copy could be posted here..Eric?). I also think about the NAvaho that consider roaming and a lot of space between neighbors necessary..and so on. I have always done battle with my friends and family over this need to move. There are those that would consider this normal and could easily relate to my intention and what drives me. But this trip was extremely disturbing..and as I said frightening. This I percieve as having to do with something going on in this country and is not just about me. Thr fact this cut me so deeply to the quick. If there was ever a time to start digging in, I have to say this is it. As I tend to run the front on this one I would suggest we are in deep shit that is going to get deeper. Calif tends to be pretty protected with it's own view of everything..in this case that is both a bad and good thing. It is all too easy to not realize how shakey it's getting out there. The lines always get drawn when folks get uneasy. I'm really curios what folks like the Bergs are seeing out there. A friend pointed out I was not traveling with the protection of "tribe" and sticking out like a sore thumb in my bus..a whole other world when one can pass for "normal". That would not be me.

typing without glasses today. Hope I made it through clearly.

Aloha Nik and Steve. I will be seeing you Tuesday Rain or Rain. going into NYC in th a.m. with my daughter (17), niece (16) and mother (85) to see the Einstein exhibit and the history of chocolate exhibit at the Museum of Natural Hx. Then they will all return to Westchester and I will be heading over to Nik's at 5. I have a place to stay in the city for the night so the evening is open. Wednesday I play doting grannie with my daughter in law and new grandson BeenJammin.

Let's expand, expound, and exude.

Steve, cool about the ASL classes. Osheana and I used to take ASL classes and really enjoyed them. The instructor would always sign off color jokes at the end. It often took his repeating the joke many times till i got it. I've forgotten a lot due to lack of use but i know it will come back in a flash. My dad's going deaf and I've been trying to convince my mom and dad to learn ASL but they are in denial and refuse.

Looking forward to the visit. with love and laughter, R N A

hey,..dont take piss-call supervision lightly...( I know that Travis wont)... Really...It's an awsome responsibility. Iv'e got a good story involving the Whitehall Street, Wine, and several aborted piss-calls; which led to an entire bus load of 60's era draftees getting dumped in the middle of nowhere. It takes organizational skills. Hell, just last March 27th I was pissing in dixie cups in full view of half of the NYPD force down at the old bull pen. (which they opened up on our account). No additional charges came down. The key???.."Authorization". If a chief detective says: "we lost our head count,..I cant authorize you to be escorted to the head,..so..hell with it..piss in some of those dixie cups! Bingo! Home free. The desk personel were amazed. There I was, bare rars on three sides, standin' tall, filling cup after cup while a whole line of freaks were desperatly trying to relay information via a tapped pay-phone to our attornees who were denied access to us. Crazy system. Busted for opposing war, but Scott-free to hang my dick out in front of 200 caged Americans. Go figure. Now where was I,...Oh;..it was a result of being unorganized.

East??..hey Mark;.. I musta' missed that one. Where are you headed? Oh by the way all; the Calais move is still a go; just bumped back abit. I plan (who me?)..to get grounded; maintain a minimum of 4 to 5 folks sleeping in the living room; an on-going-never-ending pot of stew on the back burner, a baby or two doing the crawl and Sign Classes so that I can get involved helping less fortunate and/or under-privileged mutes. My edge is that I can still hear and I talked for about half a century, so I can also gab to lip-readers. I just made a break-through to my three natural children and am on the verge of getting a program going where-by I will routinely visit and vice-versa. If I can establish a solid base, I may do the winter hybernation thing after all. The Tropical gig is Easy-Living. (I dont do Easy)...By the way..speaking of the Hopi, most but not all) that I knew, always got folks wierded out in the late sixties because many of them had the Swastica (left handed version, setting still, not on end) tattooed on the center of thier chests. (also clan tattoo),..but the anti-Nazi shit that idiots threw their way, was way off base. Thier original Swastica (hope I have the right tribe) was laid out as their path of survival,..that is to say that: in the begining, they split into four bands each heading a different direction to pioneer and settle. Nor-West, So-East, So-West, Dig?

Nik; I will spend the better part of the day cleaning up in the Sanctuary, office and kitchen in an effort to be "Around" when you all swing by. Just take a peek-a-boo through the place. Hey Eric; crash here. I think that Rev. Hooper may be a fan of sorts; as he has said from time to time..(when I react wildly to an issue).."Well;.. I guess it's not the Digger Way". Thats great to hear from a Methodist Minister. He must be on to the fact that it's a deeply spiritual, personal orbit that we were all pulled into via the Frisco hot-bed sphere of influence. Now, I dont know how far he may have delved into this web site (if at all). Like I said; Ive' been here for three years and very few are aware that the Digger Thing has been actively generating whithin these sacred walls, as I dont preach it for the most part; but live it. Thats why I have a kinship with the Jews and other tribes: (they live it also)...different "ITS"; to be sure; but "ITS" all the same. When I think about though..(who me??)..It does seem logical that as a Pastor, he may have brushed lightly upon the roots of the original Digger movement as part of his theological studies. (I dont know). In any event, you should meet him. He does Texas proud. We wish each other well. (and thats a good thing).

I can relate to finding a community with even a semblance of Tolerance, diversity, and creative values, seems the ones that aspire to the concept are little more than art house facades that are more tourist oriented than true believers, scratch the surface and you find it is only a thin veneer with a profit margin at its core. Laguna Beach once teemed with the type of souls that all found common ground in opposition to mainstream sentiment, Big and Little Sur as well, I still have hope for Eugene due to its political activism and anarchist movement but I'm not about anarchy per se, you've got to have something ready to replace the society you tear down and they spend little time on that issue. I have'nt done any real traveling since 1988 so I am a little out of the loop on what is and isn't there. Eileen it sounds as tho you must have seen the paucity of what is still around. I feel as if I have to hide in plain sight when surrounded by the mainstream mundanity that I live amongst.

Eileen,

I am with Eric on that deal, it is a great story of seeking a home in a community that fits "our" needs. The places that aspire to these goals are getting far and few between. Tolerance, diversity, and creative communities are getting pushed further into the fringe by the political/religious/economic winds of late. Your story illustrates much of the frustration many feel.

Eileen -- I was the one who mentioned your recent Big Circle Trip to Sienna out of respect for the sheer Karmic nature of the story. It's tales like that which became the Migration Stories of the Hopi People. Please don't take offense.

I will be back East starting tomorrow for a few days visit to family (Mom's 80th birthday). This will be first time to visit during the summer in several decades. Any suggestions of beaches in the New York/New Jersey area? I need a place to collapse and let the rays and breezes do their thing.

Hey man I have seen these fuckers in real life - Hackpen hill is my best sighting

The location of Hackpen Hill, has been a focus for the phenomenon since the early nineties. In 1991 we had a wonderful triple Dumbbell appear below the slopes of the White Horse, and was keenly celebrated by the Crop Circle Community. Its has taken eight years, but the same field has now been visited again by the Circlemakers, but this time by something that surpasses anything that has been seen before below these slopes.

Its appearance close the White Horse, its quite simply majestic! The shock of driving down the road early on Sunday morning was enough to swerve on to the curb, as colourful vocabulary of joy came pouring from myself. This was quite extraordinary, and to make it even more intense was the fact that we had been sitting onto of the hill on a night watch on the very night it appeared!

Only hours before, we had decided to drive out to Hackpen, as its not a generally popular place to night watch. We parked the car in the Car Park above the White Horse at around midnight, and proceeded to walk along the Ridgeway some 200 yards from the Car. After some minutes of discussing a dark patch in a field directly below us, we noticed some lights that had suddenly appeared to our right, some two fields away from our present location.

Four lights came on at once, and then went off, as soon as they had appeared. Then a huge searchlight started to scan the fields, in what seemed to be cottage grounds as we located it on the map the next morning. The light was searching the field for over twenty minutes, and was not moving from its location. We were all very curious, but unusually not one of us decided to investigate further, we were all quite contented to watch it from a distance. The light disappeared not long before we decided to call it a night, but what would have we discovered if we had investigated further? Now! Many of you will be thinking about the work of people but let me put this question to you all. Why would they be attracting attention to themselves with a powerful searchlight? Could this have been farm security, the Police, or perhaps someone who knew a little more then the rest of us? Many questions, but judging by how dark this night in question was, and the enormous size and complexity of this formation, could anyone have created it? Perhaps the report and images will speak for themselves, we leave it up to you, but at the end of the day, this is an exceptional design, with beauty and outstanding geometry and presence!

The design itself is regarded as a vortex, than as a Galaxy, seen on many formations in 1994. However, the pattern is made of interlocking crescents, which seem to criss-cross each other, swirling round into three main arms. The overall diameter is around 390 ft, making it the largest ever design to appear below Hackpen Hill. Its geometry is something, which I have never experienced, purely because of the shear scale of the formation, and the organisation involved creating such a design. It reminded me in many ways of standing in the Windmill Hill formation in 1996, not only because of its diameter, but also its floor construction, which was equally outstanding. We were luckily enough to be the first people to enter, and could literally bounce on the freshly flattened crop.

On first appearance I could not see any evidence of mud on the stems, but there as a wonderful combing effect throughout the crescents, very similar to what Ilyes has been researching with regard to her Bols theory. The crop seems to be laid in three sections of flattened crop with slightly raised portion between in section. But the overall construction had the feeling that it was very lightly flattened, no heavy pressure was involved with the flattening process. Although the plants are very young, they still crackled when force was applied with each step, which indicated that the seed heads and stems were not effected by the actual event. The central part of the formation had a wonderful centre, creating a feeling that the whole process went down together, not in stages. That is an important point to raise, especially with regard to the overall diameter of the formation.

This formation Im sure will be regarded as one of the highlights of the season so far!

Hey ingman get your stick and line out ITS CIRCLE TIME

E.T. Face With Coded Disk Crop Circle Formation

On August 14, 2002, the image of an alien E.T. face with a coded disk appeared in a field of wheat in England. Investigators found the very dry plants undamaged, indicating that the formation was "real," that is, not made by humans.

An LED sighting device was found near the formation, which has caused some researchers to support the hoax theory. However, the device may have been placed near the formation after the fact by hoaxers or others. Some years ago, a witness reported that a helicopter flew over a crop formation and dropped something from the air. Later, researchers found a stick with a string attached to it by the formation, and concluded that the formation was a hoax. People are easily fooled by such tricks.

Dee had a dream about the aliens arriving just prior to learning of the formation. It was somewhat like the film, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

 

 

 

Martin Keitel also had a dream just prior to learning of the formation, that seemed related to the event (see link below).

The mass media often presents the so-called "skeptical" spin on the topics of UFOs/ETs. Sometimes a scientist will explain that visits from ETs are unlikely, because of the vast distances between stars. The speed of light cannot be exceeded, therefore it is silly to think that ETs travel many years just to visit the planet Earth. Case closed.

One "problem" with this media spin is that many serious investigators, such as Jacques Vallee, do not believe that ETs are physical beings from other solar systems. Investigations led to the theory that the phenomenon is probably activity from another dimension. Strange phenomena of many sorts has been with mankind throughout history. The belief systems, including the religions, of various cultures has often been effected by such phenomena; angelic visitations, for example.

It is our view that dreams have been, and continue to be, associated with such phenomena. Joseph Campbell said that we create civilizations out of our myths, and that myths develop from dreams. The ETs, the Watchers, may be attempting to influence a change of beliefs on a global scale. We, humanity, may accept or reject the change. It may not be wise to simply debunk and ignore the input.

So, the selectively "skeptical" argument is lacking - the case is not, by any means, closed. The jury is still out.

Eileen,

I gave your email as msn.com to Vicky, maybe Eric can get her the correct address. I am sending Gristle a copy of Les Diggers de SF.

Jenn,

Yep, being a California native the weather this year is significantly changed. I can remember some long hot summers but not with such a steady spell of heat. Great for the beach and garden but ominous in the global sense. I didn't really think the DA recall in Humboldt would make it to the ballot but it is scary. Missing Redwoods are a fact of life here in the Santa Cruz Mountains, now mostly small clusters on private land being pillaged by a San Jose lumber thug.

Hammond,

I didn't get to see Arthur Lee and I think he is off to Europe now. I had to make do with Southern Culture on The Skids and Reverend Horton Heat last week at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz.

Well; after clogging up the juditial system; like so many human blobs of colesteral, the block of defendants that I was a part of, stayed united and as such, we all walked this mourning with no court costs, no fines, no slave labor and all charges dropped in 60 days of fairly good to half-way decent behavior. Some were let off with "Time Served"and charges dropped. (more time in court than in jail: go figure). It may be announced on the M27 Coalition web site or at the next press conference, I dont know. Enough polotics. Comming back from court,I picked up three small bronze oriental coins in China Town. I had given my small ones away and also my extra set of large ones. The Large ones that I still cast the Oracles with are real clunky and tend to wake the dead at 4 AM. Hey, I was off when I had said that the moon was in Taurus a couple of days ago. Thats what threw me off. But I trusted my gut feelings to spite it; and it ended up paying off. Remember; a wise soul is guided by the stars; a fool is ruled by them. Later. Smile Sam.

Mark, just wanted to let you know, the D.A. recall in Humboldt Co. didn't get enough signatures for the november ballot. The funny thing is, the good ole boy recallers think this guy is too lenient on crime, and too tough on logging industry, i.e. jobs, but he is actually tougher on crime, has more stringent medical herb guidelines, but he is not into big business and wants to stop the raping of the trees by Herowitz. an aside; it is a very serious factor that the trees here are disappearing at an alarming rate. Redwoods, just mowed down. The law is 10 feet from the public access. I saw an arial shot of Eureka from the 1930's and it was solid HUGE trees for 30 miles inland. Now you would be hard pressed to find 10 Old growth trees in town. It's also alarming that it's so warm here. 5th year in a row that it's hit 90 degrees 5 miles as a raven flies from the shore. Warmer ocean water, different sea life, less to mere fog. I fortunately have profuse veggies as a result and a magnificient flower garden. bitter sweet life is. best, jenn

Yeah, MArk, my travels all always up for conversation. I'm not always crazy about that. Makes me feel the Family freak you know? UFO lights? There are 2 lines of thought on that one when it comes to earthquakes and volcanic erruptions. First off there is an electromagnetic thing that goes on around this stuff and it is not unusual to see balls of light flying around. There is also the thought they (UFO's) are somehow cooling out the situation so that things don't get so destructive. Personally I think both is likely the case. There si a great UFO site from this guy I think in uuh WA or OR that has been directy communing with UFO's and aliens for yrs now and has some wonderful stories..yes I totally believe him. Gristle made an appearance??!! Cool. Yes ofcourse I remember him.\ Steve glad to know you're out there and kicking.

Thats the spirit McMac. Hey, Tonight I more or less laid down my standing. I am not an A27 or an A7 cat. I am "THE" Mute for Peace who supports the coalition. (I aint no membership-man)... well, anyway; after some consultation; I wont fire up the Judge with a Blind-Boy-Boyd routine, and as such; may most likely get the charge dropped with out an ATD. No fine, no court-costs, no slave-labor communitee service and no "good-boy for 6 months" paper-work. As with the M27 Frisco branch; most everything is going to hopefully be thrown out, dismissed or dropped. In as much as I will be in town through Aug. I volunteered to host one hell of a crank up rally here at the Peace Church on Aug. 3rd. We plan on charging up the vibe that the coalition originally sparked earlier this year. Its going to be the wildest group of activist this side of God's-Green-Hell. (not another Mute in the whole bunch...go figure)...speaking of mutes;..I may be hung up on this thing. What with living on chocolate milk and having no one to confide in, its almost like a form of sensory deprevation. Dig? Hell; it could be a real loss..(I could have been fluent in six languages)...Me again..It aint about me...(is it?). Hey Eileen; get three men and a small boy to paint yer' room creamy vanilla gloss white. So white that it lights up the evenings. Get plenty of white cotton ruffles going also. Later all.

HEY STEVEN LOOK @ THIS

 

A Black Country UFO research group has had a big increase in reports of unexplained lights in the sky since the start of the hot spell.

Stourbridge-based Uform says it is getting reports every day of sightings of unexplainable lights and objects in the sky.

Group member Yvonne South said there appeared to be increasing activity in the "Himley Triangle" around the epicentre of the Dudley earthquake in September last year. And two unusual events were reported in Dudley on Monday and Brierley Hill on Tuesday night.

"An unexplainable silver spinning ball was seen briefly between Dudley Castle and the Black Country Museum on Monday around 1pm. It remained in the sky for seconds before disappearing.

"On Tuesday night an object was seen in the Brierley Hill area at approximately 11.45pm which travelled in the direction of Pensnett turned very sharply then disappeared instantly.

"These sightings are from credible witnesses who know the difference between, aircraft, balloons, satellites and the rising stars. There are probably even more sightings that we are totally unaware of," she said.

"It is well documented that UFO's are seen before an earthquake occurs and also when volcanos erupt. Uform is watching the skies with an open mind," she added.

The group also has video footage of an unexplainable object which was seen in the Gornal/Himley area at about 1pm on June 29 and also last month had reports of sightings from Stourport, Kidderminster and Worcester.

"One of our own Uform members witnessed an unexplainable orange ball of light on July 8 near Hartlebury Common."

She appealed for anyone with information about the Black Country sightings or other unexplainable objects in the sky to contact Uform on 07941 833842.

Preparing for Contact: Lessons from the Past

 

 

Among scientists involved in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), it's quite common to be focused on the future, ever mindful that it could take years, or even decades, to find a signal from otherworldly intelligence. But if historian Steve Dick has his way, astronomers will also turn their attention toward the past as they search for life beyond Earth.

"I am a firm believer that history should inform our present actions, that we should learn from our past to help us make good decisions for the future," says Dick, author of Life on Other Worlds: The 20th Century Extraterrestrial Life Debate. "You've heard the saying that those ignorant of history are condemned to repeat it; =E2=C7=A6 without prior preparation based in part on history, we could make big mistakes with big consequences."

Getting Physical

Some have suggested that we can anticipate people's reactions to detecting extraterrestrials by recalling the response to the 1938 radio adaptation of H. G. Wells' novel War of the Worlds. Among the listeners who tuned in after the beginning of this radio drama about an invasion of Earth by Martians, some panicked when they believed the play to be a news program about a real event.

Dick cautions against using examples like this to predict reactions to a real SETI detection. Most egregiously, Dick argues, such comparisons use hypothetical face-to-face encounters to predict responses to a SETI detection involving signals sent across interstellar distances. "The Orson Welles War of the Worlds broadcast is the ultimate example of what radio listeners thought was physical culture contact," which Dick argues "is very different from the impact if the extraterrestrials are light years away."

As an alternative, Dick proposes a fundamental principle that should guide "the broader idea that history can and should inform SETI impact studies." According to Dick, we should focus on "analogues based on the transmission of ideas between cultures, rather than on physical culture contact."

"The analogue most often cited is contact between cultures on Earth, which usually led to disaster: Cortez and the Aztecs, Pizarro and the Incas, the Europeans and the American Indians, and many others." For predicting responses to a SETI detection, however, Dick maintains, "these are not good analogues because they involve physical culture contact."

Instead, he proposes analogues based on the dispersion of ideas between cultures. "If a SETI signal is deciphered," Dick suggests, "a tantalizing terrestrial analogue is the transmission of Greek science via the Arabs to the Latin West in the 12th and 13th centuries." In this analogy, "the Greeks are the extraterrestrials," the Islamic scholars serve as the bearers of the message from one culture to another, and "the medieval translators and commentators in Spain and elsewhere are those who bring the new knowledge to the masses."

According to Protocol

Following standard research practices, the first steps that astronomers will take after detecting a signal reflect the normal process of science. After confirming the validity of their discovery, they will share their findings with the world. Even if the research team detecting a signal attempted to keep the discovery quiet, in the process of confirming with astronomers at other observatories, it seems unlikely they would be able to conceal the news for long. In Dick's view, "human nature will not allow that to be kept a secret."

Though there may be frustratingly little to report in the days following signal detection, Dick emphasizes the importance of being as complete as possible from the beginning: "In general people are eager and willing to believe in ETs on the slightest evidence. So, we'd better get the announcement right the first time, as well as any further details. In the absence of information, rumor will fill the void."

There should be no great uncertainty in determining that we have detected intelligence beyond Earth, in Dick's view, because the signals themselves would be unlike anything found in nature: "We are looking for very narrow band signals of the kind that nature does not generate, so the fact that a signal is artificial should be obvious." Instead, Dick expects the ambiguity would come later: "It will be much harder to decipher any message, a problem that I think SETI scientists underestimate. We know from cosmic evolution that civilizations could be billions of years old. Whether we could communicate with such entities is doubtful."

An Apt Comparison

Given the potential value of analogies in SETI, how can we be sure we are making appropriate comparisons? "In order to have a good analogy to contact," says Dick, "one needs very much to specify the scenario." As we have already seen, it is vital to distinguish between scenarios where evidence is transmitted across interstellar distances and scenarios where contact is up close and personal. But even within SETI scenarios involving contact at a distance, we need to consider several other factors.

"Is there just a 'dial tone' signal that indicates general intelligence, or is there a flow of information? Fast flow after immediate translation, or slow flow after perhaps generations of decipherment?" As Dick emphasizes, "These are all very different cases of contact."

In spite of his enthusiasm for using historical analogues, Dick urges vigilance: "I have always been careful to emphasize that historical analogues cannot be used to make predictions. They can only serve as guides to our thinking, as tools that tell us that not all things are possible, nor is just one thing possible." Though analogies can play an important role in preparing for the detection of life beyond Earth, as Dick reminds us, "they are guidelines that must be used with caution."

Let me know when ya'all can swing by and I will do my laundry. Hey, could your' dear-old-Dad use a bike? Im' seriouse. Or maybe your' girl??..hey; speaking of kids; my Man-Child just E-Mailed me and inquired about my plans to swing on up to N.H. He said that he has an extra room. I could visit with the In-Laws and avoid the Out-Laws that way. Im' a happy man. I Hadnt heard from the lad for three years. He sounds good. I may not make it up for awhile; as the body count is rising (which isn't suppose to happen after a "War" ends) so I may get balls deep(er) in some more civil disobedience stuff. (dont you kids try this at home). I may work on the 'Deaf-Dumb-and-Blind" angle. Hope that you have a pleasant flight. Hey everyone!

Hello. I have just returned from Llangollen north wales ,where i visited a 13th century Inn in the village of Rhewl at the foot of the llantisilio mountains.In this pub is the most amazing manuscript I have ever seen . At first it looked like gibberish but on closer inspection the symbals are very much like those contained in the Voynich book.However this parchment dated 1563 shows what looks like crop circles, mentions in latin about "THE MOVEMENT"there are some french and italian phrases that i could not decipher properly ,but both contain the words illuminatum and illuminato .Most amazingly is the signature on the bottom - quite clearly John Dee the other signature was not so clear but looked like C.Maitz or malts. Alan the inn keeper was good enough to let me take some digital pics of this and if any one like to see just email me floyd_paul_yada@lilly.com

I was browsing through this site looking for photos of my mom, Carol Seran (of Carol and Griz), from before I was born and I came across an entry from Eileen and Nicole wanting to contact my mom in Hawaii.

Jag, thank-you!! The CD got here, already. I listened to it once, then let it get all through me and the house once already today. Beautiful music. And what's more, it makes some of the things that have been discussed here come alive, it's music very personal to this guestbook. Wow.

Thanks Eileen and I'm glad you are enjoying! Feels like the house has been smoked with good music today, now it should be smoked with some favorite herbs. The dogs will stare and cock their heads and stare I bet. Gotta keep chasing the medical vibes out of this place! Peace

Hey Ohio Girl! Saging is yes..smoking. Yrs back I met a medicine woman/dreamer with the Pomo tribe. She and the women did a ceremony that surprised me with the manner, and with what they smoked us. Many local fragrant plants in an abalone shell on top of a small wad of scot towel (you know how hard it is to get stuff to smoke right without hot coals when it's just loose stuff? The scot towel worked great)..I can't remember now what all they had..mugwort, local bay and maybe sage and cedar as well. It was quite nice and made me realize (except for the scot towel, ha!) it made perfect sense to use the plants around us. Since then I often do the same where ever I am. Here, adding rosemary as well. It is a plant that loves it here and growns in abundance, being a Medeterian sp? plant. When you start looking around it feels more connected to the area to see what can be used.

And yes you are right about making a house yours. Usually painting a place seems to do that. But in this case I am re-doing the floors and had 3, 16 yr old boys help me clear the place out entirely..the black widows and daddy long legs were a bit taken aback to have them and their mess behind and under everything, be so exposed! icky..but I don't kill them. It seems I have had some significant young man energy around me (remember the Navaho guys that tended my bus in Gallup?) on this journey..humm in 3's. This is very unusual in my life. I think they are helping break up some stuck energy as only a crew of young men can do. Their energy is so wild and fresh and I seem these days to be somewhat less cranky so I can actually enjoy it. Speaking of which, my honey, I tossed out a yr back is back in the picture. Some good male energy around me is making me feel a lot better much to my surprise. In my case I don't know what I'm missed until I have it and then I'm glad for it.

Eileen, I know how so many of our sisters struggle as single moms. Bucky Fuller concluded that there is enough for everyone to have the basics as a Given. If you want a mink coat and a cadallic, get a job. otherwise, food, housing, medical care, etc. are every citizen's right. My friend Huelo has 5 kids and is a single mom. She has just been cut off of welfare (5 years welfare maximum for life, even is she has twins tomorrow) and every day is a struggle. She was a childhood friend of my son's and lived in my home when she was a Senior in highschool becuase her mother had a monkey on her back. She lives in the HUD housing that is next to the homeless shelter that is next to the county jail. It is a very depressing scene. and, no one wants to rent to her, even with HUD, becasue her 5 kids will demolish a place. and, my goddaughter, Angel, a single mom who, having been raised by a welfare mom (and hippie supreme) works 3 jobs to support her kid and buy her NEW clothes, only has no energy left to actully spend quality time with her young daughter. Parenting is such important work. All parents should be supported so they can nurture and educate theit children.

Steve, I'm a tree hugger from Waaay back. I love to interact with trees. in fact, i used to have a "Tree Hugger" bumpa sticker but my daughter was terribly embarrassed by it. That and the one with a picture of the Earth that said "Love Your Mother." Yes, my idea of going to church is expanding euphoria. I believe that is on the agenda for our meeting. I have no idea what my calendar looks like in NY. My grandson is #1 priority, and spending time with my duaghter in law and son. Also, my dad is turning 92! He works out with a personal trainer twice a week! His b'day is the 25th. I'd like to bring 17 year old Osheana by to meet you and Nik. I like exposing my daughter to alternate life styles, revolutionaries and heros.

What's the address of the coolest church in NY (your church)? Positively 4th St??

with aloha, Rena

I got a feeling and it won't go away Just one thing then I'll be ok I need a miracle every day.

Steve I wish that church would stay like it was too. Sounds like lots of people hide out in that church and that's at least one thing churches should be for, our refuge, since trees really are good for prayers.

Eileen I think cleaning up a place like that really makes it yours, it's a neat thing to do. Eileen and Rena what is "saging" a house and how is it done, sounds like smoking, if so I'd like to bay-leaf this place or eucalyptus this place and bring in a little of California!

Jag, I already feel better just thinking about the CD. See I'm energetic enough to be posting messages. We've only got a few of the songs on it, and those are on vinyl records and we're between record players, so it will be a treat!

Hey; I laid low through the last couple of moons. Picked up an over-sized Ladies Tibetan house coat today (hope it shrinks to fit).. must be made for a Red Chineese. Anyway; I walked in and they imediatly phoned for back up. I had on my Bogart African Queen get-up (complete with 1953 sweat)... They started sniffin' the air. I was pure funk. haddnt' been outa' bed for days. The enforcer flew in w/his cell phone in his hands as the gals where attempting to circle the wagons (or whatever was handy). I surprised the cat by motioning to the frock in question. (50% off). He was reluctant to cow-tow and fetch it (for fear of a karate chop???)...he finally pulled it down with a long wooden dowl that he held like a jowsting staff. After assuring the counter gal that the Ben Franklin was real, he looked at the old Grandma (who refused to acknowledge my existance) and said: "Everything OK now...I go now". Shit. makes me glad that I bailed out of that Tibetan thing. Hey.. "Fuck Tibet; Save America". I swung by, grabbed my mail and took a well deserved shower. Ol' Clyde looks naked not drapped in wet towels. Funny how things look different when viewed ...I ah.. Im' stuck..I cant finnish that line. Well..funny how things look different anyway. Hey, the Robe brings out the ol' Sythian blood. Hey Rena; why dont you gals think about a pajama (optional) party over here at the Peace Church? You too Nik. If it's a maybe, I can give a glowing recomondation to Rev. Hooper. You could even pitch your' Birthing thing to the Locals. Do you represent a Birthing Club or Organization? If not; this Church is fertile ground to start one. Hell; Im' in tight (I wish) with the local "NOW" gals who meet in the back parlor once every couple of weeks or so. ("National Organization Of Women"). As a matter of fact I gave them my NOW! sign. (not connected). Anyway; I know that they would get off on you and your' back-ground. Fuck; I want a miracle! I dont want this Ol' place to fold. It's tearin' my heart out. If I get even a whisper that its possible to save it; Im' in. Funny; but I spend most of my time hiding in this church from a wild world,.. and I rarely prey. (I talk to the trees outside).. does that count?? (I prey that it does). P.S. Hey Travis! How's the real world? (according to you that is)... I cant remember the score...Oh ya; Mutes for Peace; ZIP. MF's: DOUBLE ZIP. P.S. If ya' wanna' know "Which Way the Wind Blows" .. I can hook ya' up. No shit. Later all. Focus on Peace.

SERIOUS VIRUS

If you receive an e-mail entitled "Bedtimes," delete it IMMEDIATELY. Do not open it. Apparently this one is pretty nasty. It will not only erase everything on your hard drive, but it will also delete anything on floppy disks within 20 feet of your computer.

It demagnetizes the strips on all your credit cards. It re-programs your ATM access code, screws up the tracking on your VCR, and uses subspace field harmonics to scratch any CD's you attempt to play. It will program the auto dial on your phone so that you can call only 1-800 numbers. This virus will also mix antifreeze with water in your fish tank.

IT WILL CAUSE YOUR TOILET TO FLUSH WHILE YOU ARE SHOWERING.

It will drink ALL your beer.

FOR GOD'S SAKE, ARE YOU LISTENING??

It will leave dirty underwear on the coffee table when you are exp! ecting company. It will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine. If the "Bedtimes" message is opened in a Windows 95/98 environment, it will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close to a bathtub filled with water.

It will not only remove the forbidden tags from your mattresses and pillows, it will also refill your skim milk with whole milk.

******* WARN AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN. *******

If you don't send this to 5000 people in 20 seconds, you'll fart so hard that your right leg will spasm and shoot straight out in front of you, sending sparks that will ignite the person nearest you.

HAaahAHaahAhaaHAH!!! I needed a laugh today and this gave me one - I'm hoping to spread some laughter onto others.

Yes Rena I actually saged then cedared the house, our car, bus, dogs, ourseves and all and everyones stuff within range. That's always part of our doings on a regular basis. I smoked the heck out of the house! The place on it's on, has a peaceful feeling about it..but it's always good to clear the air and whatever else may come with it. Glad to know we are so much on the same wave..length. Good there is a good and supportive family to hold these children. I regretted my little tirade. Yet I've seen too much suffering in big families (heck any family!) to have let it go by with no comment. No doubt I am not alone in this.

On another note, in todays fishwrap their's an article buried in the back of the metro section announcing that Asscroft is going to be in town tomorrow to meet with the federal prosecuters office. I'm sure its about Oregons medical marijuana law and our right to die statute as well, just like him to sneak in on short notice so as to stem the flood of protests and circumvent the publicity. If I didn't have to drive to the coast tomorrow I'd be their and I hope we have a turn out befitting "Little Beirut"

Joe -- yeah, I agree totally about the Far Right. Ann Coulter sounds like something out of 1930s Nazi Germany. Clearly a case of "the elevator doesn't go to the top". On the other hand, the two Supreme Court decisions the last week of June (sodomy, affirmative action) lend some small hope. At least the Madness Virus has not overtaken everything yet. (I went to the movies first time in months, to see "28 days later" -- if you're up to a horrific vision of the genetically modified future, this is one scary flic.)

Sound & Spirit Welcoming Children Into the World. Eileen, this baby was blessed, born into a loving family able to support and nurture her. They live on 2 acres of gorgous jungle with a small community of people. The father is 100% there for his wife and children. The 3 boys homeschool. The mom is a midwife's apprentice. Soul work. How fortunate our sister is, to birth in such a supportive environs. If single mother's, heck all mothers, didn't have to scrounge or work untold hours for rent, what a blessing each child would be. Parenting is a Noble and Honorable occupation.

Did you sage your new home to clear the energy? highly recommended. it would also probably serve to sage yourself and Miranda. I periodically get saged...

Another UnFair Fair Note - (and yes Eileen) there are so many wonderful memories stored overall. For many many seasons it was the high light of my year.

Anyway - back to blathering for a moment. In the early 90s Victor and I decided that we would treat the crews to a party. Of course we didn't ask anyone for permission as was our habit of doing things. We rented a u-haul and filled it with about $400 worth of fruit, juices, energy bars, cookies, and goodies to eat - + a big school bus full of red carpet fun and games that we set up - all hidden from view in the "alterabled parking lot" two days before any body from the outside world showed up on site. We set up at night - and by morning there were our posters all over the site inviting all crew members to come by our digs for some red carpet treatment - funny games - and food all free free free. Before we could get going with our operation the main camp security at the time came out wanting to know who we asked. "God" we said - and they said we had to tear down our deal - and it was a fantastic deal I might add.... Anyway we had to go before the "council" so to speak and they said "NO! you can' do this without permission...." "Permission to treat the crews? We don't need no stinking permmission!" So in disgust over their lame attitude took all the food to the crew leaders and just dumped it out - packed up our stuff - including a flamingo portapotty - revved up our engines and split. No party was given for the hard working crews by the OCF staff and to this day no real party has ever been given to just the work crews - aside from the gereral after fair picnic.

We went back to the fair - with about 200 (free) laminates on strings that had a picture of Senator Wayne Morse standing next to one of his prized bulls which was pooping OCF peach pits onto the ground and under neath it said "The First Politically Correct Fair" - odd but everyone wanted one............

Ah yes the faire. I was there I don't know when but it was before the sweep got down right serious..when I next was there it was so crowded I got on the tail of a friend who had lived in India who showed me how to navigate the masses. As one might imagine in India it is a fine art..I couldn't kleep up with her. But by that time folks that were part of the "in" crowd were so full of themselves..well ROTR is equally as bad I suppose..just a different flavor. In fact several yrs back at Reggae I was camped next to some officinario types OCF and they couldn't stop talking about how much cooler they were..ego trips el royale abound. Sort of gave me a clue as to the direction things had gotten. But you know I have seen this happen with quite a few fairs to varying degrees. I mean they have become just a different look to business that is at least..what can I say..outside. There are craft fair guide books now for crafters and for the most part has become serious business with the edge of pressure and competition that I avoid. BUT I still take the Oregon fair as a great memory and inspiration of how imaginative and exciting it was and perhaps in some other time and place is creating itself. There's always us loose ends out there with a good idea that's at it's beginning.

Patric you made me laugh.

Today I have to figure out how to get 50 yrs of wax accumilation off cement/flagstone like floors before I can bring all my stuff in. Still finishing packing the last of grandmas stuff.

Rena~I hate to be a total stick in the mud. But I am always agast at folks with so many children. Rarely have I seen them not being able to do more than just struggling to take care of everything and everyone. It does not thrill me to hear families with so many hatchlings. I don't really understand this desire for many children and often seems to be the mans need to show his verility or the woman tangled in religious beliefs that in the end wear her to the bone juggling so many children. Tell me I'm wrong.

Travis - Funny note from you - 'bolted and dolted' in place and time. Haven't seen mouseman or anyone from the Fair since 97 as I never go to Eugene. Reports today from friends with a food booth say that this was a great Fair - but "great" does not fit my old standard of "magical" - Kesey was right about the sweep - but I knew it was really over when they tore down the old Drum Tower (due to late night noise compaints!) - very lame.... Now the "drum tower" is a makeshift temporary bunch of hay bales that closes up shop at 11pm so that non-drum loving oldsters can get to sleep more easily. In so many ways the age of tranformation - is a dull age at OCF. Also filled with so much gossipy rumors and silly rules and bi-rules and triple rules. Booths are no longer made from on-site materials - trucking in redwood for god's sake to build permanent structures - with concrete in the ground! Good grief - again and again with bad grief attached. The musicians are still paid a paltry beggar's sum even though the Fair makes hundreds of thousands of smackers every year. All they want to do is buy more land - that they say they are "stewarding" as ever - but this is something of a misnomer. Using the site for activities other that the Fair - and with all the publicity surrounding - etc etc - the real "magic" on the set is gone. Big publicity, the sweep, and the concrete building permit + now the food booths have to carry liability insurance!

Whatever..........In 95 I and a few other (near outlaws) were asked to speak to the press and law enforcement about the "drug problem" at a press conference - Everything was fine and politically correct until my co-hort Victor and I got up (known at the time as The Stainless Steel Pulse) for our dishwashing Dead duties along with Che Ray during NW tours and our spontaneous OCF activites... Anyway - we told them there wasn't a "drug problem" at all - but an overall "responsibility problem" We said that money from the fair should be sent to help legalize hemp, that the sweep should be swept away, and clearly reminded everyone that 10 years ago "they" were the ones sneaking in to the Fair with their LSD and brownies to get high with everyone else. Needless to say - our little presentation (wearing our uniforms of white overalls and stainless steel work hats) and our banner that read: "When the People Lead - The Leaders Will Follow" did not go over well with the politically correct folks on hand. Nor the cops -

All things just seem to pass....

Wrongo Niclole - I am most certainly the real IMAM(Suspect) - the one and only (back from the sideline) and accept no substitutes! I left the active forum (but not the form) due to someone unduly using my Steve-given moniker for less than admirable purposes. Now that was confusing! McMing (the magnificent) is McMing to you and has never been IMAM(Suspect).

Still readin - but I will refrain for now from spreading idle gossip that might be used against me!

Hey all, Still exiled to pack square public library with rest of the rabble May have my new compute by 18th or 19th. Steve sure was on a binge there for a couple days. He musta crashed. Eileen, I can relate. I guess I've accepted the fact I'm always gonna be a vagabond of sorts. We will probably stay in this cool little town for a couple years max and then move on. I'm registered to vote here. May as well stay long enough to vote that lying little bastard OUT!!!! Well gotta go now.Running out of library decreed time. I wasted most of it sending out threatening letters, downloading porn and buying Illicet chemicals.HAR! HAR! Later, Peace, Patman

I may be developing a case of altheimers (sp?s)but didn't Imam change his name to Mc Mingus after going through several incarnations of same name? because some one was trying to high jack IMAM ? If so , he has not been side line watching, right Mc Ming...if I have it right, you are very active here with us all. If I'm mixed up about this, some one let me know.

a friend gave birth today to her first daughter. She and her husband (or soul mate) have 3 sons. The friend is a midwife's apprentice and was very fortunate to have a labor that was only 1 and a half hours, born at home with a midwife. Wow! What a blessing day!

actually pulled the suitcases out of the basement to prepare for NY where we go to meet my new grandson BeenJammin. Actually his name is Benjamin, but i've always liked creative spelling. The yoga mat is the first item in the bag. then the cell phone charger...

Looking forward to visiting with Nic and Steve. My daughter and I are grooving. Some days are like that. what a blessing.

Love to all. r n a

Eileen - I am somewhat biased - (after being on the Main Stage crew, Main Camp crew and one time assistant site manager over my 13 years) working with OCF - yet rather saddly my report is: "It Just Isn't Fair Anymore" - the very last one that was actually still "Fair" was Kesey's last one (late 80s). He got up on main stage and let everyone know quite clearly what he thought of "the sweep" (mass mustering out the many fun folks who snuck in after 7pm to see the Midnight Show on Sat. night (which now starts at 7pm) - and justifiably echoing my own and others sentiments - saying that with it would come the demise of the Oregon County Fair as it had always been. He never returned to the best of my knowledge and today the sweep is huge and relentless. To preserve the best of my many wonderous memories of the OCF I should have done the same . I finally hung it up in 96 (my only time as Security crew member (walking in the 8 during the Fair among the throng). This was the year following the state narco pests threatening to confiscate the land so anti-drug Security was a big deal. Fine I said - "I will do the 8 during the fair" - I lasted nearly one day - and turned in my spurs - with comments like: "You bloody hypocritics! " After I refused to confiscate and destroy the 200 brownies these two sweet (hippie-like) youngsters were (rather descreetly) selling on the path. Instead I took them (with their mavelous bakery goods) out to their van in the parking lot. When they had the brownies stashed I escorted them back into the Fair and wished them well - (ahem... after consuming two of their proffered wares). The Secuity crewleader (a good friend) got all upset with me - and that was that as they say - Now it much closer to a Knott's Berry Farm event with people patting themselves on the back for still being there - vs. actually "being" there...... Ah well - everyone has their opinion i guess.....

Hammond~Yes I am at least not amidst the trucks wondering which one is going to take me out or which of our vehicles is going to have a heart attack. I've had more than enough living on the edge! House cleaning and job hunting is a lot less fearsome. I am decompressing slowly though as I reconsider familiar territory. I do have a sense of what I'm doing and what I would like to accomplish.

I don't know if I mentioned this. There was our favorite, really large, second hand store closing after 18 yrs, in Taos. Stan let me go through the place and pull out all his denim and fronted it to me. I got a varity of jackets, skirt, and dresses..2 large contractor bags full. I'm going to tie and discharge dye (un-dye and re-dye)and then silk screen them. I have the all time book for Shibori dyeing..Japanese teniques. Will use this clothing to experiment and see if I can find my market. I think this is such a hot idea and thrift stores always have cheap denim clothing, so I'll have a steady access of stuff to work with. I can see also just working with clothing folks already have they want transformed. Anyway just wanted to share the direction I am headed with my art. Ehem..in the meantime today is job hunting day. Hold the good thought for me.

Rena~Thanks for the picture of the ROTR design for this yr. They have had some real loosers for the last few yrs (in our humble opinion) and it is good to see them taking a new leap. That would be pretty exciting to have won that contest. It will mean a lot of exposure for the artist. There's a tiny chance Miranda and I will go this yr. M mentioned just the other day she looks forward to getting the bus painted and set up to take there. She says she had decided a few yrs back she didn't want to go there again without the bus. Camping cheek to cheek having to tote food and supplies in, in the sun and dust and partying, can get to be hard. But we did it for many yrs, plus worked there. It's really an event that is one of the more memorable. And Oregon Country Fair? Any reports from there?

Reggae on the River! A friend here on Maui, Aleshonee, just won the contest for the artwork for the ROTR poster contest. Aleshonee is the little sister of my sonVishnu Gottlieb's childhood best friend, Kai. Aleshonee is also a friend of mine. We are both Labor Assistants and have taken trainings together. I've known her since she was 4. you can check out Aleshonee's winning artwork here: http://www.reggaeontheriver.com/contest/aleshanee/reggae.jpg

while looking at the winners, I found Diev's photos in the look like a star contest. http://www.reggaeontheriver.com/contestentries-winnrlooklike.htm#DIEVHART

Diev Riendo means God's laughter. His younger brother was named Purple Air. Cool names or what!!! Diev Riendo and Purple Air were both MorningStar kids, and later moved to The Farm in Tennessee. Be and Be are their folks. Willie B Hart, an awesome powerful musician, now confined to a wheelchair with MS. Beatrice, is doing fine last I heard. I remember Steve Gaskin had B and B change the kids names to more conventional names. Purple Air became Emmanual. Diev -i think- became Mathew.

Anyone going to ROTR? Let us know how it goes.

He is missing some of the best years of his (and your) life. "A great catch' would be such an understatement I won't bother with it - er......... "fantastic catch" is a little closer..... love to you

Rolls Royce developed a gun for fireing chickens at toughend glas windows on aeroplanes ans high speed trains etc, Amtrac ordered one for tests ans their cheif engineer watched in horror as the chicken shattered the cabin window . The test and the results where sent back to Rolls Royce asking for their help and advice. Rolls Royce sent back a 1 line memmo. It read

Rena..so good to see you back here. Look forward to my own set up at home where I can take some time to catch up with you. Yes Joe..the word is..this is not a good time to be traveling especially if you don't have a home to come back to. It's a Moth'a out there! Steve..believe me my thoughts are with you. Mark you are welcome anytime. Right now we are still digging out grandma's stuff and are finding the place is a deep mess. Do-able but definitely challenging. Once again I am reminded when I can finally come up with the money to buy again I may very well entirely avoid anything but throwing up a yurt or something on a piece of land. Some old houses have their beauty. But not when one starts going beyond appearances. Makes me think a lot about the wisdom of the cultures that have lived in movable stuctures. Look forward to the time I can sit and catch up with you all a bit more deeply.

Or rather; how many were fuckin' with me?? And why did you stop fuckin' with me?? Im' just (ouch!!) Curious. Hey folks; seriously; if you havent heard of the M27 Coalition; check it out on the web. Dedicated fuckers who dont set home on their asses. (they may set in the street on their asses from time to time).. but thats another story. It's Coast-To-Coast. "Nation-Wide".

Maybe you could mount Clyde on blocks and she could do a pedal physical therapy routine, right there in the living room. Or if you know some poor kid; we could do Christmas in August. Man, I got a glimps of a new Royal Enfield today. A low compression 350 solo. Man, them Britts and their Gadgets. One lung, one carb. Simplicity.

Hey; it's a full moon in Capricorn. hey Joe; an outfit called DeCycles biked through and crashed (slept) here at the Peace Church last year. About 80 in all if I remember right. On route from the mid-west to New England somewhere. I threw out our welcoming sign just the other day. Maybe I can contact them and get some solid tips on cross country routes etc. They all had orange flags and stuff. Maybe I could pull off a mutes.. OK,..OK... "Mute" For Peace run. Hey, I heard about a town in Maryland that has a large deaf mute population and is really into the "Sign" thing. I may just enter some type of class, or school or something. Maybe relocate there and find a hearing-impaired wife. Blind would be good. Really; cutting myself off from society may be the wrong move. I worked with a chalk board with the M27 crowd, but thats bulky. I gave my Magna-Doodle away to a ceribral palsy cat who couldnt talk. Most of the super-humans that I chum with are multi-handy-capped. I feel so guilty at times, I wanna' put on a fake limp. hell; Ive' been on chocolote milk for too long. Hey Mark; maybe Sarah can take some of this stuff off my hands. I still have over 250 pouches of it left. Does she have a camera? maybe she could get some pix of me riding Clyde. Or me laying in the street. Or me practicing carrying Clyde over the Cumberland Gap...Or me at the beach wif' an anky' on me' ead'. (Bonzo Dog Band)... yep;..full moon in Capricorn. Hey; Ive got a terrific wedding gift for her. A quill pen and a brass skull and crossed-bones ink well. Great for poison-pen leters. I will wrap it up. Later.

PETITION TO: The Office of the District Attorney of New York ATTENTION: Assistant D.A. Raymond Castello, Room 836 ATTENTION: Assistant D.A. James Kindler, Room 852A

1 Hogan Place

New York, NY 10013

PHONE (212) 335-9082 FAX: (212) 335-9186

We, the undersigned, urge Assistant District Attorneys Raymond Castello and James Kindler to drop the charges that remain against members of the M27 Coalition, who were arrested on March 27th and April 7th 2003 while engaged in acts of peaceful protest against the U.S. invasion of Iraq. In support of our appeal, we site the following: *These defendants were acting on behalf of justice and international law in their acts of peaceful protest. *There was no damage to property or injury to bystanders or police officers at either of the protests. *Many of these defendants were wrongfully arrested. *Many defendants were held for an unreasonable amount of time in detention, were subjected to excessive use of handcuff restraint and illegal interrogation about political affiliations. * The actions of the DA's office in prosecuting these cases appear to have the intent to intimidate protestors, to chill dissent and to frustrate the exercise of fundamental Constitutional rights. *The unwarranted prosecution of these cases is a waste of valuable city resources in a time of fiscal crisis. The Constitutional right to peacefully protest government policy is fundamental to our democracy. Peaceful protest in the interest of justice is one of the most concrete expressions of the American ideal of liberty and is held as an imperative for people of conscience everywhere. We urge you to drop the charges against these defendants. (especially the old balding mute dude.. he's all fucked up). SIGNATURE. PRINTED NAME. ADDRESS.

Hey, try some older Dylan. It helps me over those tough spots. "I ride the mail train, baby...Can't buy a thrill...etc." Sorry for the multiple posts, I am struggling with Windows XP and new laptop with that ridiculous touchpad mouse.

The new issue of Harper's has an excellent essay that walks right down our road here. The essay is titled "The Middle Mind: Why Americans don't think for themselves" by Curtis White. This is from a book to be published this month (August) by HarpersSanFrancisco. Fucking great!

Hey, my middle daughter flew to NYC today with her main squeeze. She is going to meet his mom for the first time. His mother works in Manhattan and lives on Long Island. They will be in New York for a week and I gave her the address of the peace church and told her to look for you if she is in the area. She has a copy of the photo of you at the demo and has read your stuff here on the list and is quite impressed with the Mutes For Peace movement. Her name is Sarah.

Hey,..the meeting is heating up. The DA mob dont wanna' get any shit smeared on them or the NYC Boys in Blue Gang (for their fuck-ups)...and as such are reluctant to cut deals. (as it might set a precidence). To our advantage though; many 9-11 families have written and called in telling them to leave us the fuck alone. Here's my drift. Later tonight I will post an address and number that you all can hook up to and voice your' outrage ...(for the poor mute bastard anyway)...(so much for solidarity)...hey,.. Im' countin' on ya. Later.

Thanks jag. I plan on giving all of my stuff away and getting Clyde geared up to follow the warm weather. Tool kit etc. I plan on picking up a quality hammook and some good lead lines. The rig can double as a tent w/ light-weight tarps. No layin' on the ground fer' this kid. I need to reasearch the Appalatian bike trails etc. and/or any eastern seaboard route. If I time it right, I can stay ahead of the weather. (not counting rain of course). Fuck the land-lord. I am a lord. Hey, the mob cleared out Sat. Night and as such Im' hosting an M27 meeting in the back parlor in a few minutes. It coensides w/ the Plowshares gig tonight. I will try to get them to blend and give you all the high-lights. I met up w/the Plow Shares folks a while back,\. I can tell ya' that they are the original article. Later.

Thank-you Jag, I bet that would definitely make me feel better! I love all the music discussed in these messages. Another way to put it, anything that's the opposite of Lite Rock probably covers my taste. Is that enough to go on? I think I could use a surprise right now. Thanks!

I haven't felt great but it's an upper to read these messages, to read about the music which always soothes my soul, to see how right things turned out for you and your daughter, Eileen, and Steve you seem to be on a road trip without ever leaving NYC this stuff cheers me us. Yesterday I got my twelfth contract from "True Story" magazine, that cheered me up too. I came home from the farmers' market (with some real food that hopefully will fix me right up), and found a contract for my story "Love Harvest" which is about a woman finding romance at a farmers' market. I know, "Love Harvest" kinda sounds like one of those hippie exploitation books but the title is to get the editor's attention, they almost always change the titles anyways. Well I wonder after this story gets printed, will lonely "True Story" readers start going to farmers' markets trying to get laid? Newest place to meet guys.......?

Working at my desk with music on the tape deck that would take you all home with such a smile on your faces - wishing you could just click here and listen in to The Chalatans (live) playing extended versions of: "Alabama Bound (brief segue into "Mona")," "High Coin (Baby)," "Easy When I'm Dead," "Codeine," ending with a wild and wooly rendtiton of "When the Movies Are Over" - one of my fav songs - especially the instrumentation during the break. I think this is on one of their cds - so enjoy this one if you can. These guys were so ahead of the pack and yet another on of those - "Well, ya just had to be there..." sorta deals.

Ah the music we were all so lucky to hear first and only hand....

Jag's generostity has me plundering my vaults with a renewed musical interest....

So much better to do this than read the daily blather about who in the admin. lied today and how sorry they are for not stopping the war in Iraq. Bush saying in the background "See, it isn't my faught - Now re-elect me so I can get on with my oil cartelium."

Rena I spent a few years in Hawaii I worked on the American Hawaiian Cruise Line for almost a year as well as my brothers garage in Wahiawa on Oahu, I remember all the tented houses and the termites(not to mention the roachs), that tropical clime was a haven for insects but I loved the atmosphere and once I was acclimated socially the locals were the most gracious people. I miss it alot and one of these years I'd like to move back.

Bush's approval rating has dropped ten points in the last 2 weeks over the weapons of mass destruction thing. Tenting for termites here is only for the dry wood termites that come from overseas as far as I know. Dry wood termites live in the wood. They usually put poison into the ground around the house because the common subteranean termites actually live in the ground most of the year. Id stay out for few days either way and wash everything before using it. After reading Eileens odyssey I think Ill stay here for a while.

Aloha Eileen, Here in Hawaii we have major termites. The houses are tented and gassed with Vipane. real bad for the ozone layer but real effective and no residual spray. Is the house being tented? If so, once it airs there is nothing do deal with except the bug and centipede and scorpion corpeses. The critters die from lack of oxygen.

If the house was sprayed... I'd put cotton runners on the carpet. Usually bombs are used for fleas.

here we use salt for fleas. it really works. we use Hawiian salt because it has no sugar in it (check the label on your current brand) It kills the fleas in the carpets, and no residual poison. When our house is tented i stay away 2 days. The tent is removed after 24 house. I give it an extra day to air.

I hope your home is blessed with beacucoup laughter and love. 2 acres is grand! let us know what you plant.

I saw him and his daughter and Lara his squeeze watching two elephants fucking while they sat in an open air vehicle with bench seats and had a front row seat. No shit!

The Good Ship has landed!!!!! We found a home last night and clearly all the prayers and good thoughts pulled a terrific rabbit out of the hat! 2 acres nice size place with the ocean 1/4 mi as the sea gull flies. Bus friendly, dog friendly, people friendly. Family home of greatly loved grandma who passed 2 months ago (no not in that house) with a great deal of her stuff still in there. Furniture kitchen stuff and all the way down to the nick nacks. Looks like we can use and eventually buy the furniture..we came with card board boxes and milk crates and one dresser. Of course there is plenty of gardening room and out buildings and more than I will go into. We will probably help simply box up anything we don't want, as the family has already come together and gathered what they wanted. There must have been a lot in there cause the place is anything but empty..even paintings still on the walls. Landlady is grand daughter..singer, actress, Goddess and is not after our last dollar or our skin or life history and has let us park the bus before she is quite ready for us to move in. Termite spraying today and I want time for it to air out...anyone know the timing on that kind of stuff?Her brother taught at LSU in Shreveport,Louisiana (my home town) and there are Ewing's in the family. There's more but needed to let you all know miracles still do happen.

Me? I'm kind of in shock and holding steady until the $ is exchanged and the agreement signed. But I feel kind of teary today..a lot of mixed feelings. We're in a Cancer Sun at the moment so I will just blame it on that. Really, it's just as well I feel this all now and get it done with rather than have it so tucked away it sneaks up on me. Sad at what I've lost. Happy to have another chance and just blown out at what we have just gone thru. Now we need to get jobs but I think the Universe has given us the Big High Sign, so I think the rest will fall into place.

Change is afoot... there's magic in the air! Something is stirring up the ole tribal spirit, and it seems like those of the hippie persuasion are beginning to want to bring it together and be around others of like ilk. Something is telling us I think, that it's time that we took a united stand against the "machine", or at least start putting the wagons in a circle. Love, and New Beginnings, Char ~* (Canada sounds great! Too bad it's not in California : ) )

Just some positive energy, to much negativity has me in a funk.

Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze Well it's all right, if you live the life you please Well it's all right, doing the best you can Well it's all right, as long as you lend a hand

 

Maybe somewhere down the road aways You'll think of me, wonder where I am these days Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays Purple haze

(Chorus 3) Well it's all right, even when push comes to shove Well it's all right, if you got someone to love Well it's all right, everything'll work out fine Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line

Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive I'm glad to be here, happy to be alive It don't matter if you're by my side I'm satisfied

(Chorus 4) Well it's all right, even if you're old and grey Well it's all right, you still got something to say Well it's all right, remember to live and let live Well it's all right, the best you can do is forgive

(Chorus 5) Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze Well it's all right, if you live the life you please Well it's all right, even if the sun don't shine Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line

Someone told me that since my parents and all my older bros and sisters are Canadian, that I can opt for duel citizenship? even now? There is a state park in eastern canada called Battle of Chrysler Farm State Park, that was my great grandfathers home stead, David Dexter Chrysler...the first time I tried to go they wouldn't let me in, but years later I played gigs in Montreal and I loved it there...

Jobs relating to the forthcoming Summer Olympics might be at hand - but work permits are always a drag.

Check Your Review of The Hippie Dictionary by John Bassett McCleary

Here is your review the way it will appear:

 

John McCleary as Pundit for Flower Power Pinheads

Reviewer: grunhaus@yahoo.com from Walden Pond

This book is extremely "tiring!" It is "padded" to say the least...to the point of making the book inane. C'mon, now...he puts "zip code" in his dictionary, along with a plethora of other irrelevant terms and phrases. The "Yiddish" words (that he barely defines adequately) hardly belong in this book at all...Some Jews would be aghast at these references within the context of such a narrow window in American History...not to mention that (for such a "sexually cognative" pedant) he completely left out the sexual connotation for the word "schmuck," defining it only as "a naive or stupid person." He does the same with "putz." He doesn't seem to have a problem with defining "pussy," however...not surprising!

He mentions Steven Gaskin in his book, but fails to discuss a renegade that left Gaskin's troop (Louie) and settled in Pacific Grove with his devoted disciples (who later sued him for recovery of material assets and compensation for physical abuse at his hand...not very hippie-like, eh?) before fleeing to South America with all the money.

Also, he was much too kind in describing Gloria Steinem's character...McCleary does know how to suck up and stay published! Seriously, I could go on and on for some time about his severe language limitations and his inability to convey anything deep and meaningful about a counter culture that was so ephemeral and insipid. The term "hippie dippie" from a previous review comes to mind when I think about this charlatan. I fear he has set himself up as an "authority" on hippiedom. Well, I "question his authority!" He's more likely a dressed-down "petit bourgeois" in severe need of giving meaning to a very unfilling life/lifestyle.

As for his reference to 9/ll....I'm not sure what he's smoking these days/daze, but I don't have a problem countering his notion that if the government had listened to the hippies, 9/11 would never have happened. On the contrary, John, it would probably have happened sooner! I give this book one star only because Amazon.com won't permit me to post this review without a star rating. If I had my druthers, I would rank it in the negative field...minus a thousand stars! Take some advice, John....stick to what you always did best....panhandling!

Eileen I spent a lot of time in Canada in the 70's and it was a definite respite from the USA. I don't know how much has changed but I know it has to be better than this war machine climate we have. I remember a more civil atmosphere and a Canadian perception that we were up to no good south of their border. They wouldn't get on board the Iraqi express for Bush and that pissed him off. I agree with the concensus here that this country is becoming such an oppressive force at home and abroad that a change of climate would be welcome.

In the library talking to the librarian about "the situation" in this country. She brought up Canada. That's not the first time that has come up as an option on this journey. OK folks, can we talk about this? Anyone have any info or thoughts on this? Any place you know and love? Any tour guidess out there? Right now I'm going to sit tight. Needless to say I'm exhausted..as are my resources. But that will change and I am still less than pleased with the options. I should be on my feet again within a yr. $900+ with a long list of conditions for a hole in the wall is so far what I've seen..and that is generally what it is on the northern west coast. It is not good. Although it does no good to be pissed off I am pissed off. I would like to explore Canada via computer to at least give me something to explore and dream on. Anyone have any useful links or thoughts on this? BTW I have a hotmail account with my samileen.

Saw two handsome beauties at McD's (breakfast you know)yesterday from the crew and they looked pretty hard core. There was a time though....

money money money money..speaking of hard core..these landlords are a hard lot..$ for eyeballs and with N/P N/S, bad tenants, animal horror stories, junk cars and credit reports stuck in their brains as guide to the perfect tentant. oh yeah I'm back in California. I can do this I CAN do this.

Eileen, I'm feelin'ya. I'm feeling all of us...sometimes when I get on this line here and start having conversations with all of you, old friends and new, I get a sensation in my chest...like when I'm falling in love with someone...you know that longing, excited, anticipitory feeling of being completely alive...and that has to mean something besides that I'm just crazy and basically a child at 54...but whatever it is I like it and it makes me feel good and I think it's extremely good for my physical and spiritual health...endorphins rock! Yes,I think all of our communiques are forming a road map that will become more and more visible as we continue our dialog. In the mean time I found a wonderful photo of a small cabin/cottage in Tennessee that looks exactly like the one in my Silva/spot...in my head...the one I've been going to for 30 years...so it's now my wallpaper on the computer so I can double visualize constantly...where intention goes, energy flows...I totally intend to materialize this place...I can create it...I have zero doubt. Sam you are an amazing woman and I know you will perserver...I just thought of that great song...and we'll all go together through the wild moutain thyme...all around the purple heather we will go laddie,go...love, Nik

Steve..will be waiting to hear about Calais.

Yes, the 7th return. I park the bus in the college parking lot durning the day with my dogs. A big open lot between me and the bushes..where a carnival is setting up. An interesing mix of guys set up the rides. It's hard to believe that something that is such a throwback to my childhood and has the road as home for real actually exists anymore..and in my back yard yet! HA How appropriate. Miranda takes the car and runs our errons (I give up ever learning how to spell that work) and is hanging out with her best friend that has lived in his cart for yrs. He's showing her about using the the little town bus here and getting her to WALK places. He even talked her over the Noyo Harbor bridge twice. I did the dance with the cops last night quite successuflly and got some inside info where I can tuck the bus at night that they won't bother. I don't think there is any state as unfriendly about doing ANYTHING for free, as CA is.

Yes ladies, I do think the tribes are beginning to seek one another out. Or maybe I am and they have been doing it all along. This is a very humbling experience for me. I see where money has made me too isolated and it has taken this experience for me to wake up to a whole other window of life that many more folks share.

Road fever. Really felt like that..but more I felt driven from from behind. This house hunting looks like it may take some time, but now we are just going to sit it out. Please put the prayers out there for us to be in our new home soon.

Having been legally married a few times the "Love it or leave it" concept is neither untested nor unformiliar to me. Maybe they should change the term to read: "Kinda' like it,..or..well..vacation several times a year". (You know, "middle of the road thing").

Word from many planetary pipe-lines has it that: It's not about "Finding" your'self; It's about creating your'self. Big doin's throughout the solar system these days. Well, I just bought two belts for the vacume cleaner. (one extra) and will most likely get the bed down from the top floor by tonight. I had the oddest dream(s) last night... and they continued throughout a mid-morning nap. They Involved a whole family who Ive' never met. (dream family??)..anyway, the dream(s) kept continuing in the same setting and home (back yard style) environment; even though I awoke many times. All in color. It was a long serial of episodes that were all very comforting. I guess that my subconscience is filling in the gaps and I'm being kind to myself. It's a nice gift; both to give and receive. Who needs Television?..hey; they were most likely brought on by my rememberance of the folks who took me in on the 4th of July in Mexico Mo. (Summer of 1970 I think.) I had hooked a ride with collage proffessor named Rev. James E. Thomas from out of Cambridge Mass. His Nik-Name was "JET" When we parted trails and I headed north to Michigan, he laid some African weed on me that had brightened up the colors along the way. You still out their Jet???

Ohio Girl - Char* - Portland is in the same funk with the same lack luster of just about everything collective or conscious - unless you are 19 again or about to retire from your local government job. For myself - I am considering another expatriotic move to Europe or UK as a alternative to localized socio-artistic boredom and homeland frustration over the rise and tide of the Bushistic State - but I will wait until after the election. "Love It or Leave It" is eating at me on a daily basis. Not that things are so grand in Europe or the UK - but things and life struggles will at lease be different!!!

Hey Ohio Girl ~ I was surprised to see my thoughts lately put down so directly in your post! wow! I have been going through exactly the same thing here in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills..... wonderous beauty, slow, easy, like stepping out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Nice smiling people, lovely lakes and cool winding rivers ,,, but no collective consciousness in the least. I'm in the process of finding and moving to a more "hippie compatible" environment myself. I'm really tired of being a round peg in square hole. Hey.. maybe the hippie spirit is reawakening and we are all following some big homing instinct to "come together".........Maybe that's why it's called a movement!

What is home? We live in a wonderful old house with the best front porch in the history of the world, a large, cool porch with brick sides and pillars. How often I have wished this house could be transported elsewhere. This town (Ashland, Ohio) is so bland. That was why I moved here in the first place many years ago, there was no trouble I was remotely tempted to getting into here. Sometimes I can't stand the idea of living in this bland environment. Other times when I really get to know people I think I was wrong, there are so many old hippies coming out of the woodwork, lots of bikers old and young (this is after all Ohio, biker heaven). Then sometimes I know I'm wrong about the "straight" people when you really get to know people that's a bunch of nonsense that doesn't matter. Other times, the old man and I feel basically displaced, wish we lived with more sympathetic souls, or wish we lived back in Southern Ohio in the sympathetic countryside. The "straight" morality heavily predominates around here, it can feel oppressive even though there's a rich other side to life here too. I don't know the answer to this, just rambling........maybe the bottom line we don't live too far from either of our aged Mom's? Peace

Bus up to Portland Maine, then grab one of two daily buses straight to Calais. Hell; I may be down here more than up there. In any event; cant beat the rent up there. It rivals Saipan.

Thanks Mark;...hey Eileen; problwms, problwms!!... check out Saipan! It's the trailor park of the Pacific. From what Ive' seen, they dont use cement or morter for there "Houses". They just stack a bunch of cinder blocks up and throw on some whiffled tin. They make the slums of the Dominican Republic look like the Upper East Side. My advice??...dump anything that has a motor bolted to it. Sam; On a more personal note; I think that you and I (along with half of the remaining tribes) may be somewhat dragged by the same phenomina; that is: We arent in the wrong places; we have just found ourselve's in the wrong century. Then again; what do I know? (anyone else get the same drift). Oh; Sponge: I said "Century"...not "Universe".. got that? Hey Nik; sounds like a Rockwell painting.

Hi Jag..I really wish we could have sat with you and a good meal..road food has gotten worse along with everything else. But Miranda was so blown away by the city there was no turning back. I tried. I'm not sure you and yours were ready for what could have well been a crash landing. I am sorry to have not let you know what was up. The problwm was, I didn't know and was at the point I could hardly talk sense. When we finally pulled over night before last Miranda listed all she had learned..all she wanted to do better in her life. She says, has all this been for the lessons. I'd say that pretty much frames it up. My on the road book..Crashing Thru Karma, or..There's A Lot of Folks and Country I Never Need to See Again, or Place is not Home.

oOOH HERE i AM...BACK IN.........fORT bRAGG. Talk about Road Satorie sp?. Blasted through Portland freeway by skin of our teeth. Did not enjoy that with Miranda on my tail (behind the bus) trying to navigate blind. Let me tell you the free ways suck thru cities when one has hard no good solid sleep hardly at all in 3 months, sun fried and baked too many times over driving a small elephant and the daughter afraid of heights and never done city driving following behind, chanting to keep from hyperventilating. Car died (did I tell you) outside of Security CO..trapped in a car eater vortex, in a town we couldn't leave for days definitely in a bad movie. Guy fixing car like a bad porno phone call..willing to trade for sex and did not let up for hrs until I thought for sure I would be raped. Thrown out of KOA..did I mention in no way does my bus look like anyones vacumn from the world on wheels..let's say the 60' is back in full tilt and the road is dangerous more than I have ever experienced. Apparently I'm not alone in this take. Anyway did the Oregon coast cause Portland was definitely way too much a city for us..yes I could see it could be great if one were in that mode. Nothing felt like home down the whole coast and I could not believe we were still viewed with less than friendliness. Not to mention 4th bumper to bumper. The bus really became the only place that felt right until we crossed the CA boarder. At that point I had a panic attack and pulled off for the night. After coming full circle for the 2nd time felt we had both had enough reality check for a lifetime (yeah right..one can dream)..and realized I had left this place like loosing a lover. Had to face it and deal. We begin again. We can do it. Library closing now. Back later.

Woke up a little twisted today, not like yesterday. I'd been dreamin' about my old digs down on Leroy Street for some reason, the rumble of the number 9 train down under the street, a lady's full hips. I thought of ol' Phil Ochs, he used to live at 57 Leroy, so I hear. Down on the bottom floor. Gone before I got there, moved my bag into those rooms on the top, where I could see. I was dreamin' a beat, you see. buh bop bop buh bop bop ... that's that train under the street. It's those hips. It's ol' Phil down on the ground floor drunk on despair tappin' into the pulse of life.

That beat's everywhere....Santana Live at the Filmore '68...Jingo. Man, is it ever there. It's just that beat of life, everywhere.

So anyway, I wake up with that on my mind, that & Phil...and this is waiting when I fire up my machine this morning...

JAG - the voice of Waits is indeed an original (and I love his lyrics) yet sometimes it is a near reproduction of Capt. Beefheart's voice - I can't tell the difference on some of his songs. Great stuff......

The "thank you for your web site, here's a link to mine"-type message is just spam. Normally, I eventually delete all such comments. No need to take them seriously, folks. This is typical spammer tricks to get people to visit their sites. The Planet Drum guestbook was so inundated I had to set up a filtering email to prevent all the "Tyrolean Hotel Tourist" messages, etc.

Nik I first heard Waits in the late 70's and I dug him immediately, he is an original and very few people can do his music and no one his voice, that 2 carton a day with a fifth of jack gravel growl is totally unique.I can burn two CD's as easily as one if you'd like one, I owe ya for the video any how, let me know.

Hi all just got back from Amsterdam wow wow wow and i didnt get stopped at customs.

Gladiolus hello there. quite a remarkable post- now lets talk turkey. I think it would be a very good money spinner if you would market me.

ie Dr Sponge T shirts - Dr Sponge bathroom accesories - Hows this "The DS" hair cut

yes you too could impress all the right people with a DS cut

Dr Sponge tampon. Girls its that time of month again but keep your confidece with the new Dr Sponge panie towel with wings.

Dr Sponge cigarettes- just suck on a Sponge!

Hell who needs you Gladiolus I got this whole thing worke out just fine - look out wall st theres a new boy in town.

Back to what I wanted to say---Hammond when was you last in Amsterdam. I go 1 or 2 times a year for the last 20 yrs and to be honest the feel of the place has changed dramaticaly. Last night I wittnesed a kinife fight but there was no blood spilt and it went on for too long without any real violence. It almost looked like a performance and led me to wonder if it was staged by the tourist board a life imitating art scenario just to keep up a seedy appearance. dunno but the place does seem to have lost its edge.

Amsterdam is still worth a visit regardless of my post

Morning all, ah let's see...Italy with Emmett? could be but I recognize the name as being the guy trying to push the bio tech tabacco...so right away I don't believe him...figures if we thought he traveled with EG, we'd go to his site...not too bright

anyway, my week end went like this...bus up Thursday evening (2hr trip normally but 3hrs now due to holiday traffic)...and arrive in Saugerties to a BBQ with an after dinner motor up the Esopus at dusk. (the out board given to them by the original owner who bought it in 1948!)we got back just as the crescent moon was rising over the tree tops of the opposite bank...early the next morning I walked down to the river and jumped in (it was already 80 at 6:30am)...afterwards we walked into town to watch the little Saugerties 4 of July Parade...it was beautiful to see all the small town folks with their lawn chairs set up in the yards...I loved it...afterward I kayaked a bit and swam at the town beach...then we walked up to our friend Mary Anns for her annual BBQ and played some music and just at dusk, two baird owls let themselves be known first by sound and then they sort of floated down and perched on the fence above us...it was such a gift. and after that we, and everyone from town, walked to Cantine Field and watched the very unsophisticated fire works(it was wonderful) and home to bed...next day... morning swim and then into Woodstock to the flea market...later out to dinner for Kit and Susans 23 aniversary...and yesterday I was in the water one way or another all day...from 8 am untill 6pm when we had another BBQ with salad from the garden organic free range chicken and venison burgers...and of course great friends good wine and raucus singing...then I had to get back on the bus and come home...but even that was easy...I got on, fell asleep and the next thing I know we were at Port Authority...then home to bed...I hope everyone had as nice a time as I did...

ps has anyone heard from Eileen?

Hey; I just got back into a Saipan web site and it's very appealing. Real McHale's Navy type of vibe. I guess it's really what you make of it. My wayward Brother has a wife somewhere in that area. He bought some land somewhere in the Philapeans. Shit, he was heading out and got as far as the airport bar. He ended up in prison and a German Photographer got a lead on his connection with the National Deserter's Committy Connections in Stockholm back the 60's and did an interview etc. Well My bro. bitched about the stinkin' conditions and showed the dude his foot (which was near gange green) and the German threatened to break the story; so the head politico told Stan to get the fuck out of Dodge. State side; they wanted to amputate two of his toes and he said (being a Boyd) "If anyone cuts em' off it will be me". I gotta get his address. He use to send me wierd Buddist post cards to cheer me up and help w/ my recovery; but would never include his address. I know that he's In Boise Idaho. Thats all I know. I think that his wife and her family are livin' on his land. He had a sceme where we could all live deep into Mexico and cross North every three months to collect; but I dont do Mexico. Plus the family situation doesnt appeal to me. Im' ready for the twilight; the lawn chair,..the beach and ahh..hell,...I wanna' live in a beer commercial.

Hey, I just watched part of an airing of a thing labeled "Institute For Policy Studies". The speaker was Phyllis Bennis. If you get a chance to tap into it or run down what she has to say through other sources, it's well worth your' while. She really nails it dead nuts. very informitive. Well, Im' getting most everything squared away at this end. Im' tearing down Nik's bed in the A/M and will muscle it down to the front parlor. Will scoot out of here on Thursday, July the 10th at the latest. Will swing back by around the 20th to pull off my Stevie Wonder act. Hey, as I said; I got my hands on several cases on G.I. powdered chocolate drink a couple of months ago and have been surviving on the stuff. Its amazing that a human can live on chocolate milk. It's every kid's fantasy. I just wonder sometimes thow; if it's effecting my logic and rational. In any event Im' real carful what I consult the I Ching about these days. Wow, Buckley was one bruised and battered dude at Sunday service. He had taken another header after suffering a seizure. I got to read some medical material that he had on the subject. (his condition is brought on by screwey electrical impulses in his brain). I guess a crash helmet wouldnt be practical; what in this weather and all. Hey; Miz Nancy gave me a very touching card and confided in me that she's now recieving the psychiatric therapy that she needed. Im' curious (watch it!).. as to what environment I will plunge into next. What with all of the heavy Methodist influence and my somewhat sheltered three years here at the Parrish House and all; hell;..I may suffer cultural shock. Or;..or... culture may suffer the shock.

Hey Ohio Girl. I thought about getting a tee-shirt printed up that says" "HOWS MY CONDUCT???" CALL 1-800 DISORDERLY". No shit, I most likely will make a mountain out of a mole-hill,.. but Im' fresh out of causes. Everything seems to crumble and fall away. (or does that happen to everyone?)...anyway; I could have walked twice but like I said; my gig is a solidarity move. I realy feel for the poor bastards who are facing multiple charges that were trumped up and tacked on hours after they busted. Also the ones who were just walking by. By the way; the reason that I took off my shirt was to show them my gimp arm and chopped up chest. They had gotten real charged up because I was giving them finger in a round about way and not responding to their questions. It worked out fine and as such I didnt get my face mashed into the pavement or left laying out like a side of beef like the majority. They were fairly wierded out due to the shear volume at the Die-In. But all-in all fairly good sports and were tickled by the fact that after I was searched a third time, word got out that I was sockless and had no underwear on; coupled with the fact that my sole possession was a single NY ID benifit card. (no money,..no keys..etc)..It sped the proceess along anyway. But here the bottom line; and this cant be underscored; five days earlier about a million fucking americans filled Broadway, from Union Square to Times Square in one hell of an anti-war demonstration and didnt get shit for media coverage while the next day under 2000 flag wavers "FILLED" Times Square which led to COVER STORYS. Fuck. I havent begun to fight.

Glad --

That suggestion has got to be one of the all-time best nominations for "Unclear on the Concept Award". The Diggers may be gray-haired today, but they're not suffering from dementia.

Doncha remember the benefit the Beat Poets held in early 1967 for the Diggers? Allen Ginsberg and Gary Snyder passed a hat and gave the collection to the Diggers, who promptly "announced that there was a mistake. 'The only type of benefit that could be thrown for the Diggers is one where everything is free!' Then, they gave the hat to the bartender and told him to count the money out on the bar in front of everybody, and to continue buying rounds for the crowd for as long as the bread held out. 'That's a Digger benefit!' ... and everyone applauded." [Ringolevio, p. 278]

Hey, cool site. However, you're missing out on the real thing. You've obviously got a lot of web traffic. (Most of the search engines list the Diggers Archive high up).

Here's my suggestion: market your site. You could pull in some big Bucks. How about a nice T-shirt with that funny "1% Free" logo printed on the front. Some commemorative Digger Memorabilia, reprints of your famous manifestos, but with present-day prices. "The Digger Papers" for $21.95. None of this "Free" stuff. That's just silly anyway, something from bygone days. What about some of those famous Digger photos, but autographed by famous Diggers? You could probably get $500 for a Peter Coyote autograph.

At the least, you should have a secure shopping cart set up for visitors to give you $5 donations to help keep this site going.

Think about it.

Hell, I cant sleep. Ya know,.. Its bugging me....the Court deputy accused me of talking;..my Lawyer lied to one Judge and said that I could lip read; and another fuckin' Judge snapped his fingers to prove that I could hold a beat. Its my turn now. Im' gonna pick up a cheap cane, spray paint it white, wrap red tape around the end of it and wear my black surplus goggles to court on the 21st. (I may graduate for an M27ite to an Anarchist yet). Im' sorry that I pissed the NY-A's off in the first place. I like those folks. Now,..here's the beauty of it. Ive gone up against different Judges and Deputies each time around; but it's been the same prosecutor each time; but in as much as she originally showed her ass in court by objecting to my not guilty plea on the grownds that I was deaf; she may stand down on this issue. Hopefully I wont get any repeats,...but if thats the case...and if any of them ask if Ive' just recently lost my eye-sight; fuck;.. I can just pretend not to hear them. It's perfect. What are they gonna do? I mean who's gonna' fuck with a deaf-dumb-and-blind man? Then again, this is New York City. Any input?

Ya Rena; maybe you could make the trial. Ive' been up against three very fair Judges so far. The scene is usually a real hoot. At least a couple of M27 folk get expelled from the court room during each circle-jerk. Hell,..during the preliminary one I was real close to getting my ass booted out for talking!!...no shit. When the NY anarchists raised hell about it and started yelling: "He cant talk: He's a Mute for Christ's sake!!" the up-tight Court Deputy glared at me and, and she said: "Moving your' lips constitutes talking". With that, I lip synched "I Love You" (which she naturally took as: "Fuck You",.. and I got on her bad side. Man,.. she was really charged up. Since the end of March, nearly everyone including myself has altered their appearance in an attempt not to get matched up to some of the antics caught on tape,... but,..well,.. short of a fuckin' wig,.. Im' pretty well sunk. There are several shots of me taking off my shirt in the middle of the entersection. One cop said: Easy there Iggy. It was a real compliment.

Thanks Hammond. Hey, that Capricorn and Taurus put me to work in the basement, stocking canned food. Man it's muggy in NYC today. I may hang in for a few extra days in order to clean up the three year mess that Ive' made and to help supervize a visiting youth group of about thirty young folks. Thats usually a real charge. The vibes are so electrified. Well, gotta get back to the basement. Later.

Hey, I turned fifty-one years old today. I sat out the fourth; and as such, Im' still unexploded. I feel one-five not five-one:, no shit; thats most likely why I keep comming up with all of these crazy life-style angles. (Evil thoughts lead to evil deeds type thing;) But with a twist: YOUTHFUL THOUGHTS LEAD TO YOUTHFUL DEEDS! As far as heading north, south, east, or west; Ive' decided to go further in. And as far as finding a safe haven. It dawned on me that if I can just find that safe place within myself (like the old days),...then hell; Im' HOME FREE... Later all. Maybe see ya in the Homeskin root celler where the little man pees out of the furnace motor window. Happy Birth Day America. REVOLUTION!!!!!

This is tripping me out..... I was thinking for some reason whether I should spend time on the museum today , or do other things that might make me $$. I finally came home, after walking the dogs at the duck pond and began to add E Pluribus Unum to the Museum on Happenings ( http://www.hippiemuseum.org/happenings.html ) .... and then I added the Howard Zinn Democracy Now Link... wishing I had faster internet so that I might listen... when lo and behold it came on the radio!!!!!!! It's on KVMR.org right now!!!!! Now, in my hippie vision synchronistic heart I am celebrating the magic of Spirit's way of letting us know we are all connected, and that yes indeed our dissedent voices are flowing together to work to bring Peace and Freedom to this crippled nation.

E Pluribus Unum Out of Many, One

JAG -I would love if you cut me a cd - IZ (Rainbow and other hits) - and as for filler and since you ask - and as you might just have some of this stuff - guess my wish list would include songs in the vein of: "Sip Your Cup" by Ras Michael (akite drums)- Bunny doing "Dancing Shoes" esp[ecially with the early-early Wailers, anything by Count zzie and the Mystic Nights of Rastafari, or maybe some Big Youth classics, anything by the original U Roy and lastly say - how about Burning Spear's "Garvey's Ghost" album (dub side only please) - you know, stuff like that - other wise - just filler up! thanks!

Right on Hammond, I've been into Marley since 76 when I read an article describing him and the Rastafarian religion, I was intrigued by his smoking a LOT of ganja as a sacrament and after listening to No Woman No Cry I was hooked on Regae. Toots and the Maytals, Bunny, Peter Tosh , Jimmy Cliff (Many Rivers to Cross) and all.

I have the complete version if IZ doing somewhere over the rainbow on my hard drive, I could burn you a CD with that and a hell of lot more if you tell me what you like, I can find it.

Copping skills, now that's truly funny. Back in the 70s in Athens, Ohio, my neighbor got busted for DUI once again, he wrecked the car or something, he and his wife borrowed my old car to go to a compulsory group therapy about drunken driving, over at Ohio University. This sounds like a sitcom but it really happened, actually I've seen a story like this on a sitcom. They come home very late, for one thing my car got towed away and they had to use up their very meager money bailing out my car. What's worse, the group they went to was strange. It made less and less sense but they patiently kept trying to get with the program. Then as this hilbilly kid confided to me red-faced, he and his wife found out they were attending a gay students' support group. Well that was one of the many programs that failed to help him stop drinking....................for awhile he lived in jail and they'd let him out to sleep with his wife a few time a week and everyone was happy.

JAG - Great stuff! IZ is another great example of the connection between contemporary Hawaiian Island music and Jamacian Regae - particularly the music of Bunny Wailer. Check out Bunny's (and others) rendition of nursery rhymes if you can find the CD = very similar to IZ - I want to hear his complete "Over the Rainbow" do you have it?

Has any one heard this guys rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"? He's a 500 lb Samoan who sings this tune in an achingly sad and sweet falsetto, it segues into "What a Wonderful World" Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong version and it is truly a beautiful piece. All done with only a ukulele accompaniment. I have been listening to this for a couple of years but just recently heard he had died shortly after recording this.

Right on Ohio Girl. Happy independence Day.

Last night I was doing a group focusing on Substance abuse and recovery. About 10 folks in the group. We are talking about coping skills. Contending with life situations without having to resort to any self destructive behavior. I had written COPING SKILLS on the greenboard and listed some of the things the group came up with. Such as: Call a friend. Get some rest. Hit a meeting. Hit a punching bag. Hug your dog., Etc.Etc New client comes in real late, first session, referred by the court. He takes a seat way,way in the back. MMakes brief eye contact with me,sizes me,up squints to see the board. Doe'snt appear to be enthused with either and proceeds to glare at his boots probably wonderin' what all this bullshits about. As we finish up group I ask him if he wants to add aanything and he looks up at the board again and says " Yea, If you gonna be coppin' insteada sellin' you shure ass hell better have some cash, Know where to find the best shit and have some bitch with ya to hold the dope as most you motherfuckers in here are on the mans hit list,besides being on some type of parole." "Hit a punchin' bag my ass" "You better be ready to slap some sonofbitch silly if he fucks wit your money"

There was about 5 seconds of total silence before the whole group erupted and started laughing and pointing out that it was about coping skills not COPPING SKILLS.

Definately my kind of guy. I gave him credit for group even though he was only there for about 10 minutes. peace and freedom, Patrick

Yeah Jag, I value being clearheaded now and remembering the things I do, it's a good way of life. It's not that I want to be a straight person, and when I mentioned that to one of the kids he said, "Don't worry Mom there's no danger of that!" So I agree this is a way of life that works. Peace

I didn't prefer speedballs, what a purist, I liked methedrine hydrochloride all by itself lots of it, better yet junk when there was no speed in your system, junk won out. I had all these subtle preferences for certain varieties, like it was all something important. Strange days for sure. Who knew these were "gateway drugs" to interferon, good grief! Today (and for many years before finding out I better not indulge due to my health) my taste definitely runs to being substance-free so I'm there to appreciate the world that my senses interpret. It can be a very cool world on it's own merits. Long strange trip indeed!

The cat says $300.00 and before John can pay the cat, the dude pulls out $300.00 and hands it to John and says: when can ya get it all out of here?.

There was this religious lady that wanted me and dishinnest John to paint her house. Well, back the 8o bucks was 8o bucks. We started speedin' and listened to Joni Mitchell's "You turn me on I'm a radio" (hundreds of times consecutively). Well, the neighbors were amazed; as they had never seen any ladder work like that. We scraped, wire brushed, sanded and gave her two coats of white with jet black trim. First and last time we ever painted by flash light. (I think)......

Those two would double shoot each other up in the bedroom - crystal meth in one arm and china white herion in the other - like two freight trains (or is that fright trains?) runnin into each other. Of course all their teeth and hair fell out all over the house - but nobody seemed to care. Give me the whillies just to think back sometimes....So glad - yet in fact so surprised to be alive......

I'm heading up state now, I'll check in with y'all later on...

ps. the first book I ever read with out pictures when I was a kid and the one that got me interested in reading and learning was called "Follow My Leader" about a kid who was blinded while playing with firecrackers on the 4th of July and the resulting relationship he forms with his guide dog. I'd love to find it again...I was probably about 8 or 9.

Hey Mark; sharing Bush's astrological sign: I must admit that Im' rather contrary and side-step more than just the issues. (If I head West, I cut back East..after saying that Im' heading South..etc). Well, my true (undisclosed) plan was to fly over to to Saipan. I trashed that one,..and heres what gets me: I could have really tanned and fattened up on Saipan (spelling??).. It's in the North Pacific,..and is in the U.S.'s back pocket. I could and can legally recieve my SSI checks over there w/ no hastle..(as opposed to getting cut off for "Leaving" the Country)... but what whith the world-wide anti-American sentiment Im' afraid of getting lynched.

You make a very good point about Bush selling the "kickass" persona. The next election is going to say quite a lot about the future of this country. I see a complete disregard for clear thinking and responsibility in a large portion of the society that seems just fine with operating on the level of the World Wrestling Federation which is a goddam entertainment industry. The Terminator is going to run for office in California, and he will probably win!

Its a thrill. I had forgotten what a ball-surge it is comming that close to running human beings down. Am I back on the road to being normal? (remember that road?)...In an effort to emerse myself in main-stream society after getting over the cultural shock of hiding out in a church for three years I may infiltrate a group of like minded bicyclists..or...well..

Greetings

Very good web site. I loved it. Found invaluable information. Just what I was looking for :-)

But I have a question for the webmaster / owner. Is it OK for me / others to leave our web site details like this;

<a href="http://www.phentermine-phentermine-phentermine.com/">Diet Pills</a>?

I hope you say it is not a problem. The reason I ask is that, if I find a good web site like this, I naturally recommend it to my friends. Which is good yes? Well, yesterday I got an email from one of them, whom I had recommended another site. Seems the site owner was angry they posted their web information on the guestbook, and was sending them rude messages.

Can you believe it? I mean, why have a guest book if you do not want people to use it correct?

Anyway, if it is a problem. Just let me know and I will not recommend the site to anyone.

Regards and best wishes Hector hector@phentermine-phentermine-phentermine.com

Fuck Bush. lets talk bikes. hey; I scewed up. My short-term memory is just that: Namely SHORT. The bike is put out by TREK and it's Named "CLYDE" ...not Ralph. (I was close). No doubt about it now. Im' renaming it "Bonnie". Now back to the War. Ya,.. I saw him on screen at a swearing-in of some armed services folks. He really rubbed it on out nuts, as to how it's an all volunteer force now. Lets see now;...OK,..alot of sand. Unbearable heat. No available pussy (at any price)...Au.. no booze,.. uptight camel-fucking Baptist Style Moslems who wipe their asses with sand. Ah...hey, maybe some recruting posters are in order here. A snappy tune...Ya,...How did it go??.."Be all that you can be""...ah fuck it. Im' gonna go out and lay in the street.

- George Dubya Bushisms -

Screw the country, screw the planet, and screw the English language.

"There's a lot of people in the Middle East who are desirous to get into the Mitchell process. And.. but first things first. The.. these terrorist acts and, you know, the responses, have got to end in order for us to get the framework.. the groundwork.. not framework, the groundwork to discuss a framework for peace, to lay the.. all right." - 8/13/01

"The ground grounds me." - 8/13/01

"My administration has been calling upon all the leaders in thein the Middle East to do everything they can to stop the violence, to tell the different parties involved that peace will never happen." - 8/13/01

It is white. (when asked what the White House is like by a student at Morningside Primary School in East London ) - 7/23/01

''I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe.. I believe what I believe is right." - 7/22/01

"The true greatness of America are the people." - 7/2/01

(When asked what Independance Day meant to him on a visit to the Jefferson memorial): "It means what these words say, for starters. The great inalienable rights of our country. We're blessed with such values in America. And I it's I'm a proud man to be the nation based upon such wonderful values." - 7/2/01

"The best of America occurs when people walk up and say, Mr. President, I'm praying for you." - 6/21/01

"I want to thank you for coming to the White House to give me an opportunity to urge you to work with these five senators and three congressmen, to work hard to get this trade promotion authority moving. The power that be, well most of the power that be, sits right here." - 6/18/01

Cool,..Hey Nik; If this is my second child-hood; where do I sign up for thirds???. Its like the Pee wee Herman saga: "A Boy and his Bike". Im' modifying it into a beach-sickle and plan to ditch all of my winter gear..(as I vowed (remember what those were?) to never again spend another winter in the North. Im' bobbing the rear fender to run just under a pack rack which I plan on picking up with a pair of small surplus Swiss saddle bags. The spring-loaded girder forks and seat give her plenty of bounce and she's set up with a rear drum style seven speed. Not one of those spider from hell derailers. She's got coaster brakes and is one classic ride. She's put out by an Indiana outfit; and is flat black w/ silver pin stipes. Actually; I shouldnt refer to it as "Her" in as much as "It's" name is painted on. The Company named the bike "Ralph". Hey,.. I could alter it to read: "Ralphetta"...or "Ralpheen"... or "Ralphaminna"...or how about "A Girl named Ralph"... Oh Hell; how about "Momma Ralph". Any input??

Yes DARPA is exploring Deep Do-do that has been quasi-secretly building itself at the Pentagoon think tank for about a year now - getting out the bugs so to speak. It is tied to other DARPA systems such as Carnivore - Mobius - and other 1984 like ideas for insertion into previous realms of PERSONAL PRIVACY - just visit their web site if you want to be even more confused and concerned.

Hey,..are you driving up??..I could hang in here untill the Friday..and snag along. Hey,.. yesterday on a whim, (remember those?)..I bought a bycycle and had the thrill of a life-time riding through Manhattan traffic. Wow. Ah,.. as far as the week end up north; I would pass on the water activity. I just stay near the edge these days and wade..what with breathing through this hole in my neck, I would drownd real fast if I took the plunge. Off course, I could always snorkle with a length of garden hose and some duct tape. Real "Red Green" style. Hmmm.. Stoma Snorkeling..what a consept. Well, hey,..I gotta get ready for the Super Human Crew... in as much as they are so involved with helping me feed the poor;... I may start calling them the "Supper Human Crew". Think About it. By the way; the Church Folk gave me a real nice funeral of sorts. I will miss all of the responsibility; self-imposed and other-wise. Hey, every freak, mad-man and mental-defective in town is out for my soon-to-be-vacated job here at WSUMC. Im' being border-line stalked. Its spooky. One Iron-Curtain refugee thinks that its in my power to just give it to him. He's a scary one. Talk to ya soon Nik.

Jenn; may your' Gods bless you. (all of them). I know what Im' talkin' about. (take it from a boy whose truest friend was an apple tree). Anway, heres my latest plan; In as much as Iv'e got to be back in NYC for court at the end of the month, Im' opting to hit two of the Great Lakes and work my way back on the New york State Barge Canal. See, the cards, stars and coins say to avoid my kid's Mother, and in-as-much as they are a tight Clan, with six I get Egg-Roll. close contact is unavoidable. The EX (a LEO)..will demand to be involved. So, my solution is: dont hit Maine yet, as it would cause hard feelings as to why I didnt stop in on my way up...or on my way down. I will instead pack my winter gear in the Ol'sea bag. (Pea Coat, wool blanket, shaving kit, wool trousers, watchmans cap, scarf, hooded club pull over, rain gear, flash light, rigger's knife and mess kit, and ride the dog to Western New York. Hit Buffalo harbor and check Erie. Then head up the Niagra River to Youngstown and on north to Lake Ontario. Then south to Lewiston, Niagra...OK Dr. Sponge...OK..."Viagra Falls". Then hit Tonawanda and blow back East along the old Erie Canal. Next stop: central NY. Cut around Lake Oneida and hit Rome, then Ilion and Herkimer. Catch my breath; or some-one elses and scoot along the Mohawk River to the Capital area of NY. Hit Amsterdam, Schenectady, Troy; (hang south along the Hudson River and stop-over in Albany.) Follow me so far??..OK.. Now I do the Mid Hudson area. Head south to Kingston, Poughkeepsie, Newburgh and take a breather at Stony Point. Then on to Ossining and lay up until my trial. later
