Obama Speaking Pidgin

Nut Crackers

I've got to get this on a T-shirt for next Christmas, or maybe a knitted sweater so I can wear it to dinner.

America the beautiful

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has died of a heart attack at the age of 69, state media have announced.

Millions of North Koreans were "engulfed in indescribable sadness", the KCNA state news agency said, as people wept openly in Pyongyang.

KNCA described one of his sons, Kim Jong-un, as the "great successor" whom North Koreans should unite behind.

Pyongyang's neighbours are on alert amid fears of instability in the poor and isolated nuclear-armed nation.

Number One

If you use Google Image to search for "San Onofre Surfing Club," you will get, as the number one image, the Club's new logo, introduced in 2008. Thanks Google! And thanks to Puttzle for the last posting reveiling that Nineplus was using a logo almost certainly copied from the San Onofre Surfing Club logo. It's too late to see it on their webpage, as (according to a Surfer Magazine message board) within moments of the story breaking, the image on their home page was removed. A visit to their home page confirms that images won't load.


I found this on a Surfer Magazine message board and thought I would share it with everyone. It's about some company (Nine Plus???) using an altered SOSC logo as their own. At the bottom of the thread I found this!

"BTW - The club changed their logo in 2008. They used an image of Rick Griffin's character, "Murphy". I wonder if Ida Griffin gave them permission? She owns the rights."

The guy even provided this link to back his claim of the club actually changing their logo!

A/P San Diego:

The crisis at San Onofre deepened yesterday as food and water were found to be poisoned with lethal radiation, raising the threat of mass evacuation. The surrounding sea water was also contaminated.

Crops up to 75 miles from the damaged San Onofre nuclear plant were found to be unsafe to eat, and tap water in South Orange/North San Diego – home to 13 million people – will also been contaminated by fall-out.

Firefighters were still battling to bring leaking nuclear reactors ­under control.

Yesterday a collapse of the earth struck under the crippled power plant, causing further damage and hampering efforts to restore electricity in the hope of restarting the cooling systems which could avert nuclear disaster.

“Just throwing water on to the reactors, when they cannot get inside to see what the situation is, could mean the fuel goes critical again.

“And while the radiation leak so far is only a tenth of that at fukashima, that was in a rural area with a low population. at San Onofre it’s an urban, densely packed area so the potential numbers of deaths and cancers are much higher.”

And Oh yeah... Click on the ads.

Tough Times

Puttzle needs your help.  Please click on the ads.  After over 2 years of having ads on San-O Daze, I am approaching the magic $100 earned mark, which is when they pay out. As I have recently left myself basically homeless, I could use the $$$.  Unfortunately, this is a real situation, not a joke.  All youse gots ta do is click, then exit.

Anybody know of work? Thanks!

UPDATE: Thanks all, today so far I have made $6.68!  Believe me, I am humbled by my predicament and appreciate your efforts.
