It is illegal to remove marine life from the reef without a current fishing license.

Also, why is the Mayor wearing a white hat instead of his red one?

I came up to SanO yesterday. There was a surf contest up at trestles.
Before I went up there, I spent some time talking to this guy named Al, a little bit past the first big shack when you drive in. He seemed a nice sort, but kept claiming that he invented the space time continuum or some such. He was hard to understand and was drinking heavily.

A very unusual day at Sano

Speaking for my self. When I post something on this blog, It is mainly for my amusement.
How ever, if it generates a colorful and amusing comment, that is a bonus. If it generates a sadistic or hateful comment, well that is life as they say.
I would like to think more highly of man kind,( how ever foolish that may be) that when the hateful comment is made, it would be reread by that person and they would ask of themselves, could I have made a wiser comment.
But this is not Kansas, is it Dorothy.

A very typical day at Sano

How is dingo urine gathered? Carefully, study says

Tue Jun 27, 10:57 AM ET

Australian researchers say they have discovered a new repellent that can help with everything from rehabilitating old mine sites to reducing the amount of roadkill. It's dingo urine.

Researchers at Curtin University have been startled by the effectiveness of urine from Australia's wild dogs in scaring off kangaroos which chew through areas of new-growth vegetation.

The university's Michael Parsons said the discovery could have important applications in helping to re-establish plant life on old mine sites by repelling kangaroos, unique Australian marsupials which number in the tens of millions.

Researchers looked at the effectiveness of chemicals found in the urine of dingoes and non-native predators like coyotes.

"When we presented tame kangaroos with coyote urine, they became interested in the new smell, but when presented with the dingo urine they were startled and fled," Parsons said.

He told Reuters Tuesday that the effect of urine on wild kangaroos was even more dramatic.

Parsons's team is looking at ways of delivering the repellent effectively at mine sites and how much would be needed, as well as whether it could be used to reduce the number of collisions between kangaroos and vehicles on outback roads.

He said the university was also trying to isolate and synthesize the active chemicals in dingo urine so that it could be made in quantities large enough to be commercially viable.

For now, the university is receiving supplies of the real thing from Australia's Dingo Conservation Society, but he said how it is gathered is a tightly held secret.

"At one stage we fashioned a little urine catcher to walk dingoes and collect it from, but that tended to be risky," Parsons said.

Park Rangers Ban Playing Pool In The Daytime

SAN CLEMENTE (Reuters) - State Park Rangers have banned people from playing pool during the daytime because it encourages crime, local media said Wednesday.

The game is very popular at San Onofre Surfing Beach, especially around the "Old Man's" area, where pool tables sit under canopies outside the shack.

Head Ranger Ephriam said youths often played while drinking illegal spirits and smoking drugs. "They also use this as a meeting place to make plans of robbing people of their property at night," he told the San Clemente Sun newspaper. "We are not banning the sport, but we are stopping people from playing it during the day."

Table owners like pool tables because they earn income but use no electricity. Southern California expects to suffer power cuts in the coming months.

The Summer Solstice

A diagram showing how the Sun moves through the sky on the Summer solstice.
Click on image for full size (57K GIF)
Let's pretend, for the moment, that you're the person standing on the Earth in the picture to the left, living in Topeka, Kansas, around 40° N latitude. The picture on the left shows the view from the solar system (upper panel), and from on the surface of the earth (lower panel). Notice that some of the same features are labelled on each panel.

The upper panel shows that on the summer solstice (which occurs around June 21), the northern half of the Earth is tilted towards the Sun. Notice that the Sun is north of the equator. For you in Topeka, the altitude of the Sun at noon is 73.5°, which is pretty high in the sky. In fact, that is as high as the Sun ever gets at that latitude. It has been getting higher and higher in the sky since the winter solstice and through the vernal equinox. The bottom panel shows how the Sun moves through the sky for someone standing on the ground in Topeka.

So in general, the northern hemisphere is getting more direct sunlight, which heats the Earth most efficiently, than the southern hemisphere. This is summer for people in the northern hemisphere. During the summer, the Sun is also above the horizon longer than it is during the winter. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year.

At this same time, the southern half of the Earth is tilted away from the Sun. If you were living in Neuquen, Argentina (roughly -40° S latitude) you would be bundled up for the winter.

How high the Sun gets in your sky, and how long it is above the horizon during the day, depend not only on the season, but also on your latitude.

Remember Candy Bar?

It was another Payday, and I was tired of being a Mr. Goodbar. So I saw Miss Hershey standing behind the Powerhouse on the corner of Clark and Fifth Avenue, and I whipped out my Whopper and whispered, "Hey Sweetart, how'd you like to Krunch on my Big Hunk for a Million Dollar Bar?" Well, she immediately went down on my Tootsie Roll, and, Uno, it was like pure Almond Joy. I couldn't help but grab her delicious Mounds 'cause it was easy to see that this little Twix had the Red Hots. It was all I could do to hold back a Snicker and a Krackle as my Butterfinger went up her tight little Kit Kat and she started to scream, "Oh Henry, Oh Henry!"

Soon she was fondling my Peter Paul and Zagnuts and I knew it wouldn't be long before I blew my Milkduds clear to Mars and gave her a taste of the old Milky Way. She asked if I was into m&m, but I said, "Hey Chiclet, no kinky stuff." I then said, "Look you little Reece Piece, don't be a Zero, be a Lifesaver. Why don't you just take my Whatchamacallit and slip it up your Bit O' Honey?" (What a piece of Juicyfruit she was, too). She screamed, "Oh, Crackerjack, you're better than the Three Musketeers!" as I rammed my Ding Dong up her Rocky Road and into her Peanut Butter Cup.

Well, I was givin' it too her Good 'n' Plenty, when all of a Starburst.

Yeah, as luck would have it, she started to grow a bit Chunky and complained of a Wrigley in her stomach. Sure enough, nine months later, out popped... a Baby Ruth.

Pillsbury Dough Boy Death A Hoax

San Clemente (UPI) The Pillsbury Dough Boy is alive. He was photographed by an operative of The blog monitor while attempting to flee the photographer this Sunday at San Onofre Surf Beach. There is a rumor that he entered the Federal Witness Protection Program for unknown reasons. Official sources won't comment. It is suspected that an imposter was involved in the faking of his death and quickie funeral.

Greetings to Sheriff Bob from the tourists.

Dingo Arrested. Held Without Bail.

Dingo has been arrested and is being held under armed guard at Camp Pendleton. Rumors at the military base say that the arrest is related to the death of the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Nothing is known as to the charges because the arrest was made under a sealed warrant by Homeland Security, who have since handed Dingo over to the USMC Military Police.

I will be representing him at an emergency after-hours hearing at the Federal Courthouse. The major goal will be to prevent him from being transported to a foreign detention center for questioning, which is what usually happens once someone arrested in this fashion is transferred to a military base. It is impossible to do anything more for him right now and we will not be permitted to learn what the charges are for some time, if we are ever able to learn what the charges are. This is not your grandfather's legal system anymore.
