    I've always wondered about Chinook Salmon [Oncorhynchus tshawytscha], are they Alaskan or Siberian? And yet they from the Pacific since they are all anadromous? It really makes me wonder.

    For a long time back in the 90's Pacific string was sourced from the same Taiwanese factory as other much lowered priced synthetics. The only differences were the packaging, the imprint on the string and the plastic coil clasp.

    Steve McQueen flew across the Pacific and lived in Taiwan with his wife, Neile, and kids while filming "The Sand Pebbles." He liked to ride his motorcycle and shoot fireworks from his rooftop in an American neighborhood. Steve and Neile spent time at the Officer's Club, and befriended CIA personnel.

    Like Raymond Shaw was programmed to become an assassin whenever he saw the Queen of Diamonds, I will play solitaire until the biotch comes up and then I am compelled to poast @DreddyTennis45 's treatment of the Technicolor Pachydermal Ballet:

    Jim Morrison's "Queen of the Highway" was Pamela Courson. She once lived in Laurel Canyon in L.A.; he preferred the Alta Cienaga Motel, where he rarely played solitaire.

    Morrison had a thing for wrecking his custom Shelby GT500 that he dubbed "The Blue Lady". What a shame...that car was beautiful!

    It's like Swan lake, Beethoven's fifth, Mona Lisa and rigoletto all rolled into one. Indescribable.

    "When The Music's Over" by Morrison could be the theme for Beethoven's Ninth or Robin Haase's demand before resuming play.

    The San Poobiego Bageler is thinking of relocating to Las Vegas for a life full of tennis, AYCE buffet raids, toplesss pool adventures and camaraderie with private entrepreneur dgold. @DreddyTennis45 will cover this "activity" in an opus entitled "Fear And Loafing in Las Vegas".

    Day turns to night and it's the last burrito at Roberto's in Solana Beach. The conversation turns to the tennis career that could have been on the drive home...

    With 30-40 on hiatus, Sewretch and LeeDF are contending to take over the top poast count. @Sentinel is trying to make it a three-horse race, less than 300 behind the San Poobiego Bageler for third place. Like a Sentipeed, he may catch our heavy hare.:p:D

    In West San Poobiego born and raised
    In Dunkin Donuts where I spent most of my days
    Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
    Hiting balls on the tennis court after school
    When a couple of guys who were up to no good
    Started making trouble in my neighborhood
    I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
    But realised who I was and knew they got spared.

    Radek would have to be the wingman bcoz Sewretch would break any wing he stood on. He would then try to eat the broken wing after adding Buffalo sauce and asking for bleu cheese and celery.

    "Rabbit Redux" was the second of a four-part series of novels by John Updike about a character named Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom, a former high school basketball player facing mid-life crises in middle America in the late 60's/early 70's.

    "Sureshs-Tennis Legend" is @DreddyTennis45 's original opus about an amateur tennis player facing mid-life crises in 21st century San Poobiego. I can't wait for "Sureshs Redux".

    Sandoz Labs in Switzerland were the granddaddies of pharmaceutical LSD way back in the 1950's when Albert Hoffman first formulated the hallucinogen.

    Albert Hofmann's bicycle ride home after first self-testing LSD at Sandoz was said to be quite a trip.

    CIA thought it might have Cold War applications and bought out the Sandoz supply.

    "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" by Tom Wolfe detailed an almost never ending cross country bus trip for Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Pranksters on a very groovy painted school bus named Further. The trip is often cited as the beginning of the 60's Flower Power generation.

    Hunter S. Thompson is said to have introduced the Hells Angels to the hippie movement at a Ken Kesey party in San Mateo. The Hells Angels are often cited as playing a role in ending the "Flower Power" movement by flooding the Haight-Ashbery scene with hard drugs like heroin and speed, and being the instigators to the darkness of the Altamont night that set upon the Woodstock summer...
