The Missus and I went to the Central Coast this past weekend. Affordable lodging at Vandenberg AFB. We hit Pismo Beach and Oceano Dunes. The Monarch Butterfly Grove was quite interesting. The wind was very strong on the beach though. We did walk it for quite awhile. The wind surfers were out as well as […]
Storm to the East. We got wind and blowing sand and dirt. It sprinkled for a bit and that was all. Live in the Kern County Desert!
We had some good sized storms build to the north yesterday. This is one of those days that makes living in The Kern County Desert worth it.
I built some box planters this past weekend. The materials are 7&5/8″ by 6′ fence planks, 2 by 2s and wood screws. The Frog is back out from the back yard. Yesterday was rough with the wind and blowing sand/dust. The 14 Freeway was closed from just south of Rosamond at Avenue A to Avenue […]

Big, strong and heavy duty! http://airpigz.com/blog/2011/2/5/no-fins-no-pilot-no-problems-x-47b-first-flight-with-video.html
This was on NRO. If one currently lives here, they understand. Unless of course they are completely entranced by the last few years of out and out stupidity. And I include Arnold Schwarzenkennedy in that, also. http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/255320/two-californias-victor-davis-hanson?page=1
A couple of postcards from the era when I went to Boot Camp at RTC, San Diego. These were the barracks for the first four weeks of training. After the 2-4 day, we moved to the mainside. Providing we passed all the stuff. I lived in the closest one on the first deck. For real. […]
From just a few minutes ago. Dear Al Gore, How’s that global warming thing doing for you now!
