  1. Dear Hornet Fans, This year's Causeway Classic football game between UC Davis and Sacramento State has been relocated to Mackay Stadium, on campus at the University of Nevada, Reno. This change is due to the poor air quality conditions in the Sacramento region related to the Camp Fire. The relocation decision was made to prioritize the health and safety of student-athletes from both schools; the decision to switch venues was made in consultation with officials from Sacramento State and the Big Sky Conference. The Hornet Club is providing a bus for fans who wish to attend the game in Reno. Limited spots are available so please RSVP to Julie Shutler at julie.shutler@csus.edu ASAP. The bus will depart from the Athletic Center at 8:00 AM and will return following the game. Kick-off is at 12:00 PM. There is no charge for admission. A suggested donation of $5 will be accepted at the stadium gates and all donations will be given to the American Red Cross in support of Camp Fire recovery efforts.

    So, I’m a little nervous.

    ..like many people, I had some trouble deciding what I wanted to do for a day job. So in about my third year of college I took enough secondary ed classes to qualify as a substitute in the state of Maryland. (I don't recall the standards for certification, but they were pretty minimal in 1972 or 1973 whenever it was). And while I had a gig driving cab in D.C., which more or less paid the rent and food along with the GI bill money, I thought it would be good for me to get some real classroom experience before I spent a lot more time getting a credential. Thank god I did that. I spent one semester on the Mt Ranier junior high sub list, and by the time that semester had passed, I knew one more thing besides driving for a living I didn't want to do for the rest of my life. I can still remember the one kid in the back of the room with the red eyed look of a congenital stoner, and the look of absolute astonishment he gave me when I suggested that, as a substitute teacher, we might cover some of the material. It kind of woke me up to the situation on the ground, in the public schools of that time in Prince George county. This was nothing like the schools I had attended in parochial education in D.C. And it was very much where the jobs were. One of the things that decided me to leave an MFA program later on was that it appeared I would again be stuck looking for work as a teacher. My hat's off to you guys, because if someone is not inclined to learn what I have to offer, my first impulse is to say, "Fuck it. If you're not interested, go do something else." I'm not real big on inspiring the recalcitrant. Let 'em eat cake.

    How Often Do You Replace Your Non-stick Cookware?

    ...I haven't had a non stick pot or pan in over 40 years.

    Had to up the dosage

    ...sorry, man. Pain is a weird thing. I had some success with the techniques described and practiced by this guy, but YMMV. My own results were far from miraculous, but in my case, I'm convinced it helped me.
  6. ...the obvious answer is, "If it were up your butt, you'd know." But it's north of Sacramento, and contains both foothill forest areas and large swaths of agricultural land. We go up there all the time to visit the extensive chain of bird sanctuaries in the valley sections, which are a major stopping and wintering point on the Pacific flyway. Some epic days birding there. Paradise is on a ridge line, in the higher elevations of Butte. Pretty much only one road in and one road out, Skyway, which is why so many cars got burned up trying to drive out and why there are still so many missing and the death toll continues climbing. Chico, CA is the biggest town in Butte, with Cal State Chico located there. They managed to keep the fire out of Chico, which would have been a disaster of epic scale, but they managed only just barely to do so.

    ...you are missing something great. Exfoliating after a steam is one of life's peak experiences.

    Why do we care about Thanksgiving?

    ...it's less stupid if they taste good. There is a wild turkey gang the size of the Jets in my neighborhood that hangs out and blocks the street from time to time. I would kill and eat them, but they're pretty smart about traps, and my neighborhood is not zoned for hunting.
  9. ..there was an epic NASA photo image I ran across last night of the smoke plumes.

    ...better you than me. As you might already have deduced, I often fail in the nobility department. Neither noble nor ignoble, I continue to struggle in the search for meaning.

    ...you, of all people, ought to appreciate a holiday where we care about turkeys.
