No turn yet. Out of desperation I have turned to yard work while listening to the "Doors Channel" on Pandora. Slowly, insidiously Steely Dan and Cream and the Kinks are taking over the Doors Channel. I think the Pandora AI begins to panic when they start to run out of good Doors songs.*

Many people erroneously assume the term "acid rock" applies to the chemical modification of the listener.

Pink Floyd dropped at the start of acid rock, in more ways than one.

Just think, there is a fungus on rye that tends to grow better in wetter years. While it grows on all grains, it is much less noticeable on rye. They used to have communal bakeries in the medieval villages and they would mix grains like wheat and rye. The yeast was from the local brewery until the mid 1800s, but I digress on that part. But back then you had to have beer to have the bread. Getting back to that fungus, it has an active ingredient of lysergic acid diethylamide. So the bread for the entire village was laced with lysergic acid diethylamide.

What happens when they get to The End?

Jim Morrison's father was the admiral commanding US ships off Vietnam (may have been mentioned already).

Somehow, my brother-in-law managed to get poison oak on his balls.

Everyone teased him about his predicament. A good time was had by all.

Well, I am sure that he could ask a lovely lady to put ointment on. After agreement, then he could tell her where . . .

Once upon a time I was preparing a meal that involved using hot peppers -the little red ones - that I had to cut up for the sauce. By the time I finished my work I needed to take a bathroom break so I quickly washed my hands, including a brief application of soap.
A few minutes subsequent to my bathroom break I felt a burning sensation in my pants that quickly got really painful. Yup, the pepper oils got on me right where I handled the equipment! The skin puffed up like a balloon and it was quite difficult to wash off the oils. Had to use vegetable oil to dilute the pepper oil first.
My (then newfound) lady friend thought it was hilarious and delights in telling the story a parties!

Well, he advanced the theory that he got it bathing the dog who ran through the poison oak. This is possible but we advised him the dog bather usually does not disrobe for the bathing.

The funny thing is the 3 squadrons of planes that were craned onto the level 1 beach at Dobo, thus causing their wings to fall off, were essentially all repaired in 2 days..BUT...they can't fly off because there is no airstrip (Catch 22)..so we had to take the wings off again and crate them up.

At least you saved the planes.

As far as hot things go, a friend was telling about how his grandfather grabbed the Bengay ointment instead of the Kentucky (KY) Jelly. He said, "Talk about some hot . . . "

Rubbing your eye after handling hot peppers is no fun either. Putting a slit in a hot dog, filling the slit up with hot sauce and covering it up with chili is fun. So is hot pepper sauce in beer, it goes to the bottom and they get it when they finish their beer . . .

I fixed it. I had to send a couple of $1000 prepaid Visa cards to the office in Equitorial Guinea. I thought it was odd since I don't get Social Security but I was happy to see they were on it.

This is what happens when you attack a level 9 Allied AF with perhaps 80 dedicated AA guns over 37 mm. Somehow we managed NOT to have any heavy AA at Darwin. I blame the staff.
