Re: Bay Area meetup

For me, a Saturday afternoon meetup would also be acceptable. Say, 2 p.m.? Wunderground says of future Berkeley weather:

Thursday Night through Saturday Night Mostly clear. Lows near 50. Highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

Sounds like good beer-under-the-sun weather to me.

What if you toured a dairy and learned how milk is produced and prepared for delivery? Or you could get together And make a series of window displays on home safety!

Oh, can I make the "don't do it this way" displays? At last a use for all my rusty metal!

Well, I did watch a pig get butchered last Saturday afternoon. A couple Saturdays before that I toured a farm where cattle were being fed grass.

I wish I had watched a pig get butchered last Saturday afternoon.

I did make a gallon of extremely gelatinous pork stock yesterday, but it's not the same.

A tin roof cannot be rusted.

Because tin roofs are actually coated steel.

Of course a tin roof can be rusted. Were that not the case, Mr. Nosflow would be accusing the B-52s of being a no-good, dead-beat cadre of liars. And surely he knows they are anything but.

Maybe he's made just such an observation to friends or acquaintances, but never made the equivalent of a public statement. And so here we are, waiting, watching, and wondering just what his real views on the matter could be.

I apparently still have about 20 minutes left on this laptop battery, so I can say I should be able to make it on Saturday. Hopefully I'll have my power cord by then and be able to check in without having to resort to, gasp, a public library or something like that for the internet.
