Native Son replied to Pale Horse's discussion Study Shows Men With Inhuman Eating Habits Have Trouble Making More Humans in the group The Great Debate
"No argument JB.  Just note I said that adult humans don't absolutely need bovine butterfat to survive and thrive.   Point being that  the only mammal that absolutely needs bovine butterfat to survive is a bovine calf."

Native Son commented on Jamie Fellrath's group Velo Men
"Regular Joe, it appears the bicycling community in Ottawa is a bit different from the bicycling community in the San Francisco, CA area.  Down here, we have a noticeable subset of cyclists who think riding only something with a fixed, i.e., no…"

Native Son replied to Pale Horse's discussion Study Shows Men With Inhuman Eating Habits Have Trouble Making More Humans in the group The Great Debate
"Because, calves, like every other infant mammal, require lots of fat in their diet to survive.  OTOH, adult human mammals don't absolutely need bovine butter fat to survive. And on the OTOOH, I fondly recall the local dairy milk where I…"

Native Son replied to Daniel Offenbacher's discussion How to begin a regimen? in the group Exercise
"I know this will sound either dumb or just overly obvious. One thing I found, especially for the slightly "over-organized", is that you need to not only set a time for your regimen, but you need to figure on something between 30-45 minutes…"

The Beacon is Lit.

Posted on December 8, 2010 at 1:32am 0 Comments

It's Pearl Harbor Day.

On the evening of December 7, 1941, the aircraft navigation beacon on top of Mt. Diablo, east of San Francisco, CA was not lit for the first time since 1928.

The rotating beacon has a visual range of some 200 miles, well within the flight range of 1941 carrier based bombers, and it was feared that Japanese would use the beacon to bomb the San Francisco area.

The beacon was not relit until December 7, 1964.

It will be lit…

Culmination Day.

Posted on June 11, 2010 at 12:26am 0 Comments

Almost unbelievable! Our daughter just "culminated" from elementary school today. Good grief, it seems like only a couple of weeks ago she was a "Campbell's Soup Kid" look-alike of a toddler. Now, she's on the verge of becoming a young lady. Absolutely amazing how quickly time flew by.

One minor note. I laughed at the contrast between her Culmination Ceremony, with speeches, awards, certificates and cake and my successful departure from elementary school, which was on the…

My apologies for not responding on my post, I'm unable to reply to any post via my phone. You are correct however, I misspoke when I said a vast majority, I should have said "a vast majority of people in my local area or lacal hangouts"

If you dare to cross the Bridge/tunnel, try Cable Car Clothiers 2 blocks from my office. I know they have straight razor implements. Even if they don't have what you're looking for, I imagine they'd be able to tell you where to look.
