48 Years Ago Today, Sandor Szabo passed away at the age of 60. Szabo won dozens of titles in various regions, including several versions of the World Heavyweight Title during the 40's and 50's. But here in California, his status as a wrestler was legendary, as he wrestled here in parts of 4 decades. He held virtually every important title in California during that time period at one point or another and he held Northern California's Pacific Coast title more times than anyone.
Update for anyone interested: South dock is now gone. Work on north dock begins today. The vibration drilling process of removing the pilings is literally shaking the marine life to death as evident from photos and video footage shared by Pierce County. Any that do survive the process and make it to the sea floor will have no hard surfaces left to cling to (especially as this is one of the few unusually sandy areas on the Sound) and will most likely die. Based on information from Pierce County, any creatures still remaining on pilings pulled from the water "could be disposed of." The Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium took some specimens from the north dock in June but HUNDREDS of anemones and starfish still remain. This includes the many giant purple and ochre starfish that are disappearing at an alarming rate up and down the entire Pacific Coast (due to the starfish "wasting" epidemic). It is unbelievable that a plan hasn't been put in place for proper removal and relocation of these healthy stars which ar ...

We will remain on the western side of high pressure which is currently centered off the Pacific Coast through Saturday then the ridge begins to move inland Sunday and Monday driving temperatures anywhere from eight to twelve degrees above seasonal averages. Average for this time of year is 54/83. A cooling trend will finally commence on Tuesday as a major shift in the pattern begins. Models continue to trend towards a deep through of low pressure off the Washington Coast by Tuesday. The jet stream will sag in Northern California late Tuesday night and Wednesday. Models continue to indicate most of the activity will be from Fresno north but stay tuned. This is an evolving weather pattern. Temperatures for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 91/55/89/56/90.
Over the eastern North Pacific basin on this Thursday morning, there's an area of low pressure located near the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Gradual development of this system is possible through the weekend while it drifts west-northwestward. Regardless of development, this system will produce locally heavy rains over portions of Central America during the next couple of days.

Fukushima Fallout in California 1000x Greater than Expected: What You can Do A government expert called the Fukushima fallout in California ‘a thousand times greater than we expected’ several days after the Fukushima explosion, but you are likely just now hearing about it. The estimations of fission products (i.e. carcinogenic and radioactive particles) being leaked into the ocean and carried by currents to the Pacific Coast of the U.S. are staggering. From the start of this crisis, understandably, people have wanted to look the other way. It is a huge issue, and it seems there is little we can do about it, but this is not true. The following information is meant to enlighten you on the subject, not scare you. I don’t believe in fear-mongering, but rather, education. For this reason, you can skip to the end of the article if you want for suggestions about how to mitigate the effects of radiation with diet and herbs, but obviously we need to make it clear to governments and the nuclear industry that ...

In the earliest days of America’s participation in the war, panic gripped the country. If the Japanese military could successfully attack Hawaii and inflict damage on the naval fleet and casualties among innocent civilians, many people wondered what was to prevent a similar assault on the U.S. mainland, particularly along the Pacific coast. This fear of attack translated into a ready acceptance by a majority of Americans of the need to sacrifice in order to achieve victory. During the spring of 1942, a rationing program was established that set limits on the amount of gas, food and clothing consumers could purchase. Families were issued ration stamps that were used to buy their allotment of everything from meat, sugar, fat, butter, vegetables and fruit to gas, tires, clothing and fuel oil. The United States Office of War Information released posters in which Americans were urged to “Do with less–so they’ll have enough” (“they” referred to U.S. troops). Meanwhile, individuals and communities ...

Colonial expansion under the crown of Castile was initiated by the Spanish conquistadores and developed by the Monarchy of Spain through its administrators and missionaries. The motivations for colonial expansion were trade and the spread of the Catholic faith through indigenous conversions. Beginning with the 1492 arrival of Christopher Columbus and continuing for over four centuries, the Spanish Empire would expand across most of present day Central America, the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, and much of the rest of North America including the Southwestern, Southern coastal, and California's Pacific Coast regions of the United States. In the early 19th century the revolutionary movements resulted in the independence of most Spanish colonies in the Americas, except for Cuba and Puerto Rico, given up in 1898 following the Spanish-American War, together with Guam and the Philippines in the Pacific. Spain's loss of these last territories politically ended Spanish colonization in the Americas.

We have had some great kitesurfing conditions, seemingly endless winding roads, giant Redwood trees, empty beaches, a delicious dinner at my sister Christine and her husband Giuseppe's incredible restaurant Trabocco in Alameda and a lot of fun and laughs. Last day today riding somewhere in the Bay area before these guys fly out tomorrow and I drive 'The Beast' back up to the Gorge.

Hold onto your butts! Adventurous and intense, you live life on the wild side - Summer Blockbuster style! "Jurassic Park" is a 1993 American science fiction adventure film that incorporates some horror elements as well. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg and is the first installment of the Jurassic Park franchise. It is based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Michael Crichton, with a screenplay written by Crichton and David Koepp. It stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, Ariana Richards, Joseph Mazzello, Martin Ferrero, Wayne Knight, Samuel L. Jackson and Bob Peck. The film centers on the fictional Isla Nublar, an islet located off Costa Rica's Pacific Coast, where a billionaire philanthropist and a small team of genetic scientists have created a wildlife park of cloned dinosaurs." - Wikipedia
Did you know... Beulah Marshall bought the land and built in the early 1920's. Her purpose was to serve dinner in the evenings and teas in the afternoon. It became very famous and patrons came from both Dallas and Fort Worth. The tea room became known for its chicken fried steak that was cooked over a coal burning stove. The property was located on the Bankhead Highway, which is now Division Street. The Bankhead Highway was named after Senator John Hollis Bankhead, who sponsored the Federal Road Aid Act in 1916. It was a transcontinental highway which stretched from Washington, D. C. to the Pacific Coast, a perfect location for a tea room. Because of the spectacular view and 1,000' high elevation of the property, it became known as Top O' Hill Terrace.
Thanks for all the inspiring comments everyone. Yesterday and Tuesday were incredibly tough days and I was too tired to post our progress. Day 4 was from Paso Robles to Santa Maria for a total distance of 97.7 miles. Along the route we stopped at the historic Mission San Miguel built in the 18th century. Again, riding through the mountains, reaching the halfway point to LA, and the Pacific Coast scenery was amazing. This has been an inspiring journey for a very important cause. Thanks everyone for supporting me in the California AIDS/Lifecycle Ride 2014.

Things you don't really need to know about Texas How Big Is It? Since 1959, a number of fine people continue to believe that the Lone Star State is no longer the biggest in the USA. I reckon that some folks still believe in the Tooth Fairy, too. Until global warming melts enough of Alaska, revealing the true size of this northern pretender, we'll have to content ourselves with some generally accepted and verifiable facts. Texas is 266,807 square miles. That's as big as France and England put together, with a few acres left over. Say you want to drive the length of Texas from north to south, from Texline to Boca Chica Beach. That's 1019 miles. It's almost as far driving from east to west, from Anthony to Toledo Village. That's 932 miles. Interstate 10 crosses the entire width of the USA, connecting Santa Monica, California, on the Pacific Coast to Jacksonville, Florida, on the Atlantic. More than one third of this highway lies within Texas borders. Texas has 254 counties, more than any other state. ...

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park is a state park of California, United States, on the Big Sur coast. A main feature of the park is McWay Falls, which drops over a cliff 80 feet into the Pacific Ocean. The park is located on land that was originally called the Saddle Rock Ranch, because of a rock formation in McWay Cove that resembles a saddle. It has two environmental hike-in camping areas, named by Sunset magazine as one of the "four best places to pitch a tent on the Pacific Coast".

Bloomberg: Canada Finds China Option No Easy Answer to Keystone Snub May 2, 2014 Stephen Harper was in need of a new friend with a big appetite for oil. The Americans just weren’t cutting it. By Edward Greenspon, Andrew Mayeda, Jeremy van Loon and Rebecca Penty It was February 2012, three months since President Barack Obama had phoned the Canadian prime minister to say the Keystone XL pipeline designed to carry vast volumes of Canadian crude to American markets would be delayed. Now Harper found himself thousands of miles from Canada on the banks of the Pearl River promoting Plan B: a pipeline from Alberta’s landlocked oil sands to the Pacific Coast where it could be shipped in tankers to a place that would certainly have it -- China. It was a country to which he had never warmed yet that served his current purposes. Harper stood before a business audience in a luxury hotel banquet hall in Guangzhou, capital of China’s most populous province, putting on his best pro-China face while touting his nati ...

Today is April 15th. On this day in 1947, Jackie Robinson made his major league baseball debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He went hitless. Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born in 1919 to sharecroppers in Cairo, Georgia. His middle name was given to him as a tribute to President Theodore Roosevelt, who died shortly before Jackie was born. Robinson was born into a family with considerable athletic talent. His older brother Mack won a silver medal in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. In the same year, Jackie won the junior boys singles title at the Pacific Coast *** Tennis Tournament. He was also named to the Pomona baseball all-star team, which included future baseball Hall of Famers Ted Williams and Bob Lemon. At Pasadena Junior College, he broke the broad jump record, which was previously held by his brother Mack. After junior college, Jackie went to UCLA, where he became the first athlete to letter in four sports (baseball, basketball, football, track). In 1945, he played professional baseball for the Kansa ...
This former Russian-American Company trading post, built on a shelf of land above the Pacific, 13 miles northwest of the mouth of the Russian River and 80 miles north of San Francisco, represented the farthest penetration south by the Russians. Fort Ross expressed the efforts of the company, a trade monopoly, with headquarters at Sitka, Alaska, to establish during the nineteenth century a base on the California coast for sea otter hunting and the development of agricultural supplies for Alaska. In June 1812, a crew of 95 Russians and 40 Aleuts began to work on a stockaded redwood fort on an elevated coastal plateau overlooking a small harbor 30 miles north of Bodega Bay. The Russians now occupied a permanent trade base at Fort Ross and a harbor at Bodega Bay from which their needs in Alaska could he supplied. The fort was dedicated on August 13, 1812, as Rossiya, derived from the Russian word Rus. In 1821, the Czar issued an ukase closing the Pacific Coast north of San Francisco to all but Russian ships. ...

HISTORY OF AMERICA: History of Hispanic and Latino Americans. A continuous Hispanic/Latino presence in the territory of the United States has existed since the 16th century, earlier than any other group after the Native Americans. Spaniards pioneered the present-day United States. The first confirmed European landing in the continental U.S. was by Juan Ponce de León, who landed in 1513 at a lush shore he christened La Florida. Within three decades of Ponce de León's landing, the Spanish became the first Europeans to reach the Appalachian Mountains, the Mississippi River, the Grand Canyon and the Great Plains. Spanish ships sailed along the East Coast, penetrating to present-day Bangor, Maine, and up the Pacific Coast as far as Oregon. From 1528 to 1536, Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca and three other castaways from a Spanish expedition (including an African named Estevanico) journeyed all the way from Florida to the Gulf of California, 267 years before the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Day 7: A day of rest This morning we got up in time for breakfast at 6:30am. Breakfast was the same as the last few days, cereal, pancakes, eggs, sausage, and hash browns. After breakfast we got on "Marvi" and began our one and a half hour drive to the Pacific Coast. On the way we stopped off at a bridge and walked across to see dozens of crocodiles sun bathing in the river below, we also got to see an iguana. Then we continued our journey to the coast. We arrived at Vista Los Suenos at about 9am to do a canopy tour, that's right zip lining! Katie wasn't able to join us on account of her medical condition, pregnancy. There were 12 lines and you can't turn back when you start so part of our group was pretty nervous at the top. However, once we all started going the nerves settled and we really enjoyed ourselves. On line six some of us, myself included, even went upside down! The 11th line was the longest and fastest as well as the most fun, it was awesome. We then got back on "Marvi" and drove to the Punt ...

More fun facts: The original Los Angeles Angels actually played in Los Angeles. They were a minor league (Pacific Coast) team owned by William Wrigley (the owner of the Cubs) who built for them a stadium he called Wrigley Field (it had ivy in the outfield and everything). In 1957, Walter O'Malley bought the franchise and Wrigley Field from Wrigley's son for $3 million so he could have territorial rights to Los Angeles. The next year, the Dodgers came to town, but never played a game in Wrigley field. While waiting for Dodger Stadium to be finished, they played in the LA Coliseum. In 1961, Gene Autry paid $350,000 to O'Malley for the right to continue the Los Angeles Angels franchise as an expansion American League team. His Angels also played in Los Angeles, first in the old Wrigley Field and then, from '62 to '65, in Dodger Stadium (though they called it "Chavez Ravine" instead). In 1966, the CALIFORNIA Angels moved into the Big A in Anaheim where they play today. Los Angeles only has one baseball team.

This is a Western Pond Turtle (Actinemys marmorata). They are found nowhere other than the Pacific Coast of North America, from Baja California to Puget Sound and just barely into British Columbia. Together with the Western Painted Turtle, they are the only native turtle species in the Pacific Northwest. Large adults only have an 8 inch carapace length, being rather average sized turtles. They live in various types of water bodies, but always prefer quiet, still waters. Ponds match this description and are therefore favored, hence the name. And like other "pond turtles" they are omnivores with a highly varied diet. They feed on fish, tadpoles, and insect larvae as well as various aquatic plants. They are not particularly picky. Now these turtles are rather rarely observed as they actually present a bit of a problem as they are a particularly wary species. I've heard photographers comment on the frustrating level of difficulty in getting photos like the one posted. They have very sharp eyes and ears and wi ...
On this date (March 19) in 1848, Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was born in Monmouth, Warren County, Illinois. Named for his father's good friend and military colleague, Wyatt Berry Stapp, Earp's youth was marked by the upheaval of the American Civil War and his family's frequent relocation between the Midwest and Pacific Coast. Wyatt was married, then a widower, a lawman in Missouri, and jailed for stealing horses in the Indian Territory, all before his twenty-fourth birthday. He served as a lawman in the Kansas cow-towns and did a creditable job in difficult circumstances. In 1879, Earp relocated to Tombstone, Arizona Territory, along with his four brothers, and their families. In not quite two and a half years there, Earp worked as a stage-line operator, a saloon-keeper, and a local, county, and Federal peace officer. In October 1881, Wyatt marched to the O.K. Corral with his brothers Virgil and Morgan and John Henry "Doc" Holliday, killing three members of the "cow-boy" gang of outlaws. This event sparked ret ...

Fukushima's Radioactive Water Could Reach U.S. Pacific Coast by April Water containing radioactive cesium mixed into the Pacific Ocean after the 2011 9.0-magnitude earthquake in Japan, and it's only a matter of time before that tainted water reaches the U.S. West Coast. Now scientists say the radioactive water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant could arrive on California, Oregon and Washington coasts in just a few weeks. Health officials continue to stress that none of the tainted water has reached the California coast to this point, according to a SFGate.com report, and that even when the water crashes on the coast in April, cesium levels are expected to be low. Along the West Coast of Canada, however, researchers said they are beginning to see traces of cesium in water samples offshore, according to a LiveScience.com report. During the annual American Geophysical Union's Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, it was announced that cesium-134 and cesium-137 isotopes have been detected. Scientis ...
Last night on the CBS Evening News Scott Pelley started 'the world's biggest drug kingpin has been captured at a Resort on the Pacific Coast in Mexico'. I asked myself what Hamid Karzai was doing vacationing in Mazatlan and then they said is was some guy named 'Chapo'. I guess they really captured the second biggest drug kingpin. The last time I checked, the biggest was still President of Afghanistan, and being fed by my tax dollars.

Black Mexicans see pride in lost history Communities starting to discover roots, fight discrimination By LAURENCE ILIFF / The Dallas Morning News SAN NICOLAS, Mexico – Dark-skinned Mexicans along the southern Pacific Coast have long sensed their roots are distinct from the mixed-race majority dominated by European and Indian blood. But until relatively recently, many had only a sketchy idea why. "A popular story says we came from a stranded African ship," said Jorge Añorve Zapata, 38, a schoolteacher from the Costa Chica, or "small coast," south of Acapulco. "It's a nice story. But as it turns out, the truth isn't so nice because we came in chains as slaves and were the first ones to drown." Now, African-Mexicans along the coast are discovering their roots, countering negative stereotypes, and trying to find their place in Mexican history. Government-issued textbooks describe coastal residents as "festive" dancers who happily raise cattle and corn. Crude drawings depict the physical characteristics of ...

West Coast or Pacific Coast are terms for the westernmost coastal states of the United States, usually California, Oregon, and Washington. More specifically, the term refers to an area defined on the east by the Cascade Range, Sierra Nevada and Mojave Desert and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The U.S. Census groups the five states of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii together as the Pacific States division.

English language has "borrowed" words for centuries. But is it now lending more than it's taking, asks Philip Durkin, deputy chief editor of the Oxford English Dictionary. English speakers may not be famous for being au fait with foreign languages, but all of us use words taken from other languages every day. In that last sentence au fait is an obvious example, but famous, foreign, languages, use, and taken are also borrowed words. Knowledge of what is being borrowed, and from where, provides an invaluable insight into the international relations of the English language. Today English borrows words from other languages with a truly global reach. Some examples that the Oxford English Dictionary suggests entered English during the past 30 years include tarka dal, a creamy Indian lentil dish (1984, from Hindi), quinzhee, a type of snow shelter (1984, from Slave or another language of the Pacific Coast of North America), popiah, a type of Singaporean or Malaysian spring roll (1986, from Malay), izakaya, a typ ...

Thanks Timothy Connor for this post. In case the caption doesn't come up, here is Tim's caption for this frightening photo: For some reason it doesn’t seem that long ago. The frightening rail accident in west Spokane that sent rail cars off the Latah Creek bridge onto the westbound lanes of Interstate-90, barely missing a Greyhound bus as it was heading up the hill. This was the day before Christmas 1991. I remember it because it was about this time that Connie and I were moving from Browne’s Addition (our duplex sat on the current site of the MAC parking garage) into a house in a small neighborhood a mere stone’s throw from where the cars derailed. Con and Devin still live in that house and they are among thousands, for sure, who would have precious little time—if any—to escape a toxic inferno like that which occurred l ...

Between Mountains and Sea: Blanton Museum exhibition highlights art of ancient Andes AUSTIN, TX.- The Blanton Museum of Art, in partnership with the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin, presents a special selection of objects that illuminate the lifestyle, technological achievements, and ideology of pre-Inka cultures among the coastal Andes of South America. Between Mountains and Sea: Arts of the Ancient Andes features 80 extraordinary works drawn primarily from the University’s collections with loans from the Dallas Museum of Art, ranging from intricately woven textiles to painted ceramic vessels and modeled effigies. Through a dynamic presentation that integrates art historical and anthropological contexts, the exhibition traces the artistic development of the ancient Paracas, Nasca, Wari, Moche, Chancay, Sicán, and Chimú cultures from the Early Horizon (900–200 BCE) through the Late Horizon (1470–1532 CE) periods. The exhibition was conceived by the Blanton an ...

Drought got you down? Escape the dry anxiety with an 1895 article from the Los Angeles Herald that proclaimed "Ventura County is one of the best watered counties in Southern California." Surely the effort of local boosters, the Los Angeles Herald article branded Ventura the "Palm City of the Pacific Coast." An 1896 article in the San Francisco Call bragged "the water is pure and sweet and in quantity sufficient to supply a city of 75,000 inhabitants." (Ventura's population was around 107,000 according 2012 census data.) The Ventura River is noted as "a beautiful and rapid-flowing stream, noted as one of the best trout streams on the coast," though not to be outdone by the Santa Clara River, the source for the area's 150-foot deep top soil. So if you get frustrated while replacing your lawn with native scrub, or curse the water pressure in a low-flow shower, take comfort in assurances from 1896: "When Cabrillo dropped anchor in the harbor where Ventura now stands, he counted twenty-five (Chumash) villages ...
On paper, the pairing of LA synth-boogie wizard Dam-Funk and infamous Cali rapper and spliff-huffing, renaissance troublemaker Snoop Dogg seems both baffling and perfectly logical; listening to said collaboration as 7 Days of Funk, it's a wonder that this dynamic duo didn't get together sooner. Dam's bumping, squealing, shimmying keys and Snoop's permastoned vocals are a match made in G-Funk heaven, stripped of pretension and bouncing down the Pacific Coast Highway in a hydraulic Caddy, picking up Steve Arrington, Tha Dogg Pound, and all manner of P-Funk All-Stars along the way.

(NaturalNews) If you've heard about Fukushima radiation spreading to the Pacific Coast of North America but were "corrected" by sources both official and expert that this was based more on rumor than reality, then consider the information presented at the October 2013 North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) annual meeting. Researchers from Fisheries and Oceans Canada confirmed that the radioactive plume from Fukushima is indeed reaching the shores of Canada and the United States - and was detected at least six months ago - carried both in the ocean surface water and the atmosphere on similar but slightly different courses. In a presentation titled "Communicating the forecasts, uncertainty and consequences of ecosystem change," (read here: the Canadian researchers gave evidence that the bulk of radioactivity from Fukushima is shifting almost entirely from the western portion of the North Pacific (Japan) to the eastern portion (North America) over the course of the next five years. As of 2012, it ...

"The coal and other natural resources of Alaska should be opened to development at once. They are owned by the people of the United States, and are safe from monopoly, waste or destruction only while so owned. Thus the benefit of cheap fuel will accrue to the government of the United States and to the people of Alaska and the Pacific Coast; the settlement of extensive agricultural lands will be hastened; the extermination of the salmon will be prevented, and the just and wise development of Alaskan resources will take the place of private extortion or monopoly."

Canucks/Kings Writeup The monday night Pacific Coast battle between the Vancouver Canucks and the Los Angeles Kings will showcase a relatively new and growing rivalry within the division. This will be the third meeting between the two clubs this season. Ever since the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, where the two met in the first round, both teams have appeared to take each other very seriously. There is usually a sense of elevated emotions that set a significant stage for a playoff-like type of vibe. First and foremost I will state the obvious, in which more or less the foundation of this entire write up will be simply based upon. These two teams are about as defensive as they come. Both of them are hovering ataround a 1:2 ratio in terms of overs to unders, respectively. At this point of the season, it is clear that the lopsided tendencies are not a result of mere coincidence, but in fact a reflection of strictly enforced playing styles. Both Head Coaches John Tortorella and Darryl Sutter have proven several ...

Meet the 2014 Holstein judge Mark Rueth from Oxford, Wisconsin Mark grew up on a 35-cow grade dairy farm in Jefferson County, Wisconsin. He started his dairy career showing in the grade classes at the county fair and soon advanced his interest with the purchase of a registered calf. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, Rueth began working with some of the leading dairy herds in Wisconsin and the Pacific Northwest. While on the Pacific Coast, he purchased Westlynn Tom Dee with a group of partners. That cow went on to become a four-time World Dairy Expo Grand Champion and also earned Reserve Supreme Champion honours at the show. Tom Dee was just the first of four cows to win Supreme or Reserve Supreme Champion honours for Rueth. Stookey-Elm Park Blackrose (EX-96), a two-time All-American cow, was one of the next cows Mark Rueth developed. Over 50 percent of the present milking herd descends from her.

3 more WSU Virtual Motor City (Detroit News) photos of the Detroit Cougars. Written History on the official site of the Detroit Red Wings: "The roots of the Red Wings go all the way back to the old Western Hockey League, where the Victoria (British Columbia) Cougars were members until their roster was sold to a group from Detroit on September 25, 1926. The Detroit group had been awarded an NHL franchise on May 15, 1926. The team began to play as the Detroit Cougars in the fall of 1926 while playing its home games in Windsor, Ontario. Despite the fact that the Victoria Cougars had won the Stanley Cup in 1925 and were Cup finalists in 1926, the Detroit Cougars finished 12-28-4; the NHL's worst record for the 1926-27 season. Not only did the team struggle on the ice, but it performed poorly on the ledger sheet as well where the Cougars were more than $80,000 in debt. Help came, the following season, in the form of Jack Adams as the team's coach and general manager. Adams had played in the old Pacific Coast l ...

The first boat is already under construction in the line's Maryland shipyard, as is a new paddlewheeler, scheduled to launch spring 2015. Both will carry between 150 and 200 passengers, according to the line. The line will begin construction on a second paddlewheeler later this year or next. The boat currently under construction will operate solely along the Columbia and Snake rivers from the Pacific Coast to the Idaho border. Decor will be Pacific Northwest in style with historic accents and artwork that highlights the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the Native American tribes who helped them. Every cabin will have private balconies and panoramic views. The boat will be the first new river boat on the Columbia and Snake Rivers in 10 years. MICDAN.COM CRUISEPL

addition, radioactive debris is starting to wash up on the Pacific Coast. And because the Japanese are burning radioactive materials instead of disposing of them, radioactive rain-outs will continue for some time … even on the Pacific Coast. Of course, the government is doing everything it can to help citizens cover up what’s occurring. We pointed out in January: Instead of doing much to try to protect their citizens from Fukushima, Japan, the U.S. and the EU all just raised the radiation levels they deem “safe”. Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says that high-level friends in the State Department told him that Hillary Clinton signed a pact with her counterpart in Japan agreeing that the U.S. will continue buying seafood from Japan, despite that food not being tested for radioactive materials [see this]. And the Department of Energy is trying to replace the scientifically accepted model of the dangers of low dose radiation based on voodoo science. Specifically, DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley Labs use ...

I HAVE A RANT !!! Many of you may be familiar with the recording artist Sarah McLachlan (and she's more than that woman on the animal abuse commerical, so suck your own on that one.) Well.in 1997 Sarah released her album "Surfacing" which included a song entitled "Angel".and here begins the rant. I first heard this song played publicly, via television broadcast, during a memorial ceremony for those lost in the crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 on January 31, 2000 of the Pacific Coast. I was living in Los Angeles at the time. I soon realized that no one could have possibly been familiar with the songs inspiration or another song might have been chosen. Since then the song "Angel" has been used repeatedly to memorialize any mournful teardrop that's found it's way down some "cray" teenagers angst ridden cheekbone just to fall down and wet a page from their hatred filled Justin Bieber covered diary while being held tight against their chest during the 250th installment of "Oh, my life *** somebody call L .. ...

Monday, September 23, 2013, the 266th day of the year. On This Date in History: 1779: John Paul Jones, the Father of the American Navy wins his famous sea battle off the East Coast of England aboard his ship, the "Bonhomme Richard" named for Ben Franklin's "Poor Richard's Almanac" against the British ships "Serapis" and "Scarborough". When asked to surrender his sinking ship, Jones gave the famous remark "I have not yet began to fight" in response to the Serapis's Captain whose ship he boarded and took three hours later as his ship sank. The Scot had killed a man during a mutiny in the British Navy and fled to the Colonies. Lucky for us. 1806: Lewis and Clark and their Expedition returned to St. Louis completing their mission from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Coast and back in a little over two years. Everyone assumed they were all dead. 1846: The 8th Planet, Neptune, is discovered. 1862: "War and Peace" author Leo Tolstoy, 34, marries an 18 year old girl. The marriage last for 48 years u ...
Weather Outlook for Sunday Sun, 22 Sep 2013 08:30:00 EDT A wave of low pressure on a stalled cold front over the northern Gulf will help to focus moisture near this front and result in numerous showers and storms from southern Louisiana to the Florida peninsula. Farther to the north from the Carolinas to New England, the cold front is forecast to progress well offshore and allow for the arrival of a fresh and high quality airmass for Sunday and into the beginning of the work week. A broad upper level trough over the Western U.S. is forecast to intensify while moving through the Four Corners region, aiding in widespread precipitation over the Central Rockies by Sunday afternoon. There may even be some snow for the highest elevations above treeline in the Central Rockies. Onshore flow over the northern Pacific Coast is expected to continue aiding in orographically driven rainfall for the Pacific Northwest.

Come with me on the trip...either physically, prayerfully, or financially. But come...and share this adventure with all your friends!

Took 3rd place in my nameless age group in the Pacific Coast Tri this weekend. First race since starting to run again 3 wks. ago took its toll on my endurance, as well as the heat, cold water, 1/2 mile ocean swim that was almost a mile of choppy water, and my half healed knee...lets see any more excuses?.Oh yeah, I coached the kids while I biked the course, hoping not to have them pass me and really be embarrassed:)
So, first weekend back from Burning Man, a little random act of violence. Someone apparently felt compelled to slash my car tire in the parking lot of Grocery Outlet in San Leandro for no reason. My tire guy confirms that it was a deliberate act of vandalism. Still, in the afterglow of the Burn, and an amazing weekend along the Pacific coast with my lovely family, I refuse to let it bring me down and choose instead to double down on random acts of kindness to offset the bad vibes. Take that vandals!!
In less then 24 hours I will be en route to the Pacific coast with my sweetheart Grace McCollum!!! Look out San Juan island
Yoga in Mexico with Andrea in 2014? Could be a go if she gets enough people to give a verbal commitment by the end of this week! Quick particulars: March 15-22 in Yelapa on the Pacific coast (fly into Puerto Vallarta), approximately $1600 per person double occupancy plus airfare and a couple of other small expenses. It's a fantastically gorgeous location - mountains, beach, jungle, waterfalls all surrounding a small coastal village. If you can say yes or want more information, contact Andrea by the end of the day on Friday (andrea715-231-9000) or send a FB message to Yoga in Menomonie!

A Portrait of Random Hacker General Appearance Intelligent. Scruffy. Intense. Abstracted. Surprisingly for a sedentary profession, more hackers run to skinny than fat; both extremes are more common than elsewhere. Tans are rare. Dress Casual, vaguely post-hippie; T-shirts, jeans, running shoes, Birk-enstocks (or bare feet). Long hair, beards, and moustaches are common. Hackers dress for comfort, function, and minimal maintenance hassles rather than for appearance.They have a very low tolerance of suits and other ‘business’ attire; in fact, it is not uncommon for hackers to quit a job rather than conform to a dress code. Female hackers almost never wear visible makeup, and many use none at all. Some hobbies are widely shared and recognized as going with the culture: science fiction, music, religion, chess, magic, backgammon, wargames, and intellectual games of all kinds. Education Nearly all hackers past their teens are either college-degreed or self-educated to an equivalent level. The self-taught hac ...
