    I hit a deer Saturday, out near Vernonia, while doing around 50 MPH.
    The deer didn’t make it. I did.

    I don’t think the bike’s too bad, though the carburetor was knocked clear off. I’ve got a broken wrist, leg and a few other places that are rather painful. Don’t you hate bruised ribs? Man, I hate bruised ribs.

    My jacket, pants and boots are toast. They served me well though, “They only need to work once.”

    I won’t be pitching shoes for a while. Dang it.

    Two more bridges, Longview and Astoria?

    I just watched an AP video about the “Hangers.”

    I guess they’re not in cliff tents. You know what I mean by cliff tent, right? The structures climbers hang out in on the face when the ascent takes an overnighter, or two.

    The stuff hanging off the bridge looks makeshift.

    Man, I hate to go here, butt … do they wait to ‘go’ ’til night?

    Cutting the lines is what they want. I’ll bet you something shiny they are all prepared for a water landing, though I wonder if they drew straws to pick the drowning ‘victim’? After all, nothing will bring more sympathy than a needless death, eh?

    Lowering them onto the deck of a waiting ship/boat would be anticlimactic.

    I’d’a done it by now.

    They’ve got their publicity (nation wide?), now the parties over…

    I haven’t paid much attention, because I think folks getting all up-tight about what fuels their vehicles is a bit hypocritical. I suppose taking exception to where the raw oil is extracted from might have some validity, but still…

    How about instead of blocking a ship, someone comes up with a way to make the ship a relic of old technology?

    Though I’ve no idea of the rigging employed by those “cliff tents” (isn’t that what they are?) I think getting them down would be relatively easy; attach a wench to the line, detach the line and slowly lower the structures onto an awaiting Coast Guard boat.

    I was beginning to wonder myself, nails. I could get to the newspaper website just fine.

    This new forum thing is compartmentalized is all.
    Navigation is a breeze.

    I hit the main page and look at the time stamps. I know I was here ‘N’ hours ago, if I don’t see something posted since then I go back to carpet cleaning, yard work, pitching shoes… If I do, a quick click takes me a little deeper to see what-where.

    Easy-peasy.

    And as far as “much worthwhile” … that hasn’t changed from the old forum, luvey.
    This here would serve as a perfect example. Heh.

    The CB1 and 2’s role in bone formation has been hypothesized for some time now.
    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1550413105001683
    The research is related to osteoporosis.

    I might check out ‘Cloud Atlas,’ jj. I just finished ‘A brief History of Seven Murders’ (Marlon James). The Jamaican patois was a little tough at the beginning, but after a bit I got the hang of it.

    I found it interesting, though the violence was downright horrific. James wrote the thing with each character (basically) being their own chapter.

    Anyway, I just gotta have something going, sitting on the night stand. ‘Bone Clocks,’ mmm, I don’t know… ‘Cloud Atlas,’ sure, why not?

    Adios.
    In a few hours I’ll be rolling out headed to Forest Grove. There, I’ll be living in a tent ’til Sunday hanging out with Gator, Stone and Fred. It’s the annual PNW Crew gather!

    I feel a hangover coming on ;^)

    Beth Hart’s okay.
    I wouldn’t buy her music (I’m into goth metal or whatever they call it), but I do enjoy watching her perform. She’s sorta got the scooter tramp thing going on, and, well, you know… I kinda like that ;^)

    dee, this isn’t about him wetting the bed as a 12-year-old (or the like). This is about something done, like, yesterday.

    Suppose it was some uneducated individual who put the thing together. That in itself raises several questions. Here’s a couple:

    An individual who doesn’t know the difference between an U.S. armed forces uniform and that of ANY foreign country is interesting.

    Something as important as a deal that will be sent out to bunches and bunches of people might, should be scrutinized by the CEO (heh) before release. Dontcha think?

    Now, given the controversy over the rapist and druggies flooding across our borders, could The Wave (Trump) be implying we should just start gassing them?

    Heh.

    That was rude, Roger.
    John! Roger’s posting Blondie videos! Isn’t there something in the rules about that? ;^)

    Even though Pluto is an ice’r, notice how clean the surface is.
    I’ll bet that little tug of war between Goofy, er, I mean Pluto and Charon creates a bit of heat.

    Coolness (yes, a cheap pun, but aren’t they all? ;^)

    Man, I had such a crush on The Slick.
    Who didn’t, eh?
