    It is difficult nowadays to be a matchbook collector.

    Every time I see a cat, I am reminded of Rusty.

    He's an investment banker, so he must be busy making millions, and taking pretty girls out in his yacht.

    This four minutes or so of Disney's "Dumbo" is my fail proof way to wile away dead time on the streets while I'm pedicabbing. Can you imagine how ahead of their times these animators were to make this magical sequence in the early 1940's???

    Dr. Albert Hoffman took the first LSD trip in 1943 on a bicycle ride home from his Sandoz lab in Switzerland. It was an accidental trip due to contact with the drug, which he was testing for other purposes. What happened to his mind on his ride home was quite surprising to him.[​IMG]

    Was Zappa zapped on acid when he wrote: "Billy was a mountain, Ethel was a tree growing on his shoulder."???

    A kind soul left the Weekend Arts section of The New York Times on a bus seat. I completed the crossword puzzle in it on one leg of my commute and only needed one Google hint to break the stymie in one quadrant of the puzzle.

    There's nothing like pen to paper when doing crossword puzzles. I tried it online and it's just not the same.

    Carlos Castaneda relayed in his writings the wretched taste of peyote.

    The "Ray Donovan" episode when his deadbeat dad (Jon Voigt) eats some peyote is quite entertaining.

    shame on BG for predicting just 1.5 more slams after Roger won his last Wimbledon in 2012.

    The San Diego Bageler is inspired by the man and now sees a way to play at Wimbledon.

    I went to a local Indian market today, hoping to buy some of their freshly made samosas, but they were already sold out. This left me very disappointed.

    Sounds like a surreptitious Sewretchian road trip might be behind this suspicious shortage.
