What Have They Done to My Song, Ma

Look what they done to my song ma Look what they done to my song Well, it's the only thing that I could do half right And it's turning out all wrong ma


so I'm reading the Sunday News-Press looking for lies and  rightwing religious propaganda and it didn't take long to spot an ad on page 5 from a group Santa Barbara Women For Trump aka Santa Barbara Pussies For Trump...

now this is the weirdest political ad I've seen yet..the gals call it "an election guide" and it's been approved for use in churches by a constitutional attorney..hopefully one who doesn't cheat on his taxes! haha

what have they done to my brain, ma?

then I see Hillary and Donald whose pictures are being used for "educational purposes" the guide says...and it is paid for by Citizens for Community Values out of Cincinnati, Oh...

in other words, it's a rightwing Christian politacal ad for Donald Trump disguised as an election guide! geez, do they think I is stupid??

then they list a bunch of things Hillary won't do but Donald will do like Appoint Pro-Life Judges, Protect Second Amendment, Defund Planned Parenthood, Protect Biblical Religious Conscience whatever that means, Protect Traditional Marriages (and insane asylums??)
and some more rightwing concerns..

this is not an election guide or educational material, it's propaganda..the same ultra-conservative shit they use to brainwash the kids at the Young Miss America Foundation, Wendy's nonprofit....

then at the bottom of the ad, they use Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again"
which is pretty stupid if they are claiming it is not a political ad!!

which it is

Night Moves

I woke last night to the sound of thunder, how far off I sat and wondered

they say Carpinteria is having crime slashed at night, illegal pot farms, parolees being dumped at Motel 6, methheads running around....and all in my neighborhood!

well I don't know but we do seem to have an uptick in poor white trash around here..perhaps an exodus from Oklahoma is to blame..trailer parks with tattoed fat girls and skinny long-hair white guys with broken teeth and they can barely put a coherent thought together, ie Donald Trump voters!
and all the beer joints don't help..Island Brewery seems to attract these retards and if you've seen the owner, you'd know why...not exactly the picture of health


but I'm not worried about the crime too much because we got the cops on it..and as long as education remains a low priority among white trash and they are allowed to keep breeding, the cops have endless job security...and actually, Carpinteria has always been a kinda wild west show anyway, they used to have the Carson and Barnes Circus on the Bluffs! then the yuppies moved in and complained about animal cruelty...geez, can't anyone have a little fun???


so I see in December that Rancho Monte Alegre will be auctioned off, no reserve but the asking price is around $32 million....I told you about my stay at the ranch in Olive Carey's old pink cottage..the cocktail parties she threw with John Wayne and Robert Mitchum..the ranch cats and wild beautiful nights..and of course the crazy owners...

I really enjoyed my time up there and I looked for a place close-by to buy and did buy by the way...but I went up to the ranch to look around, trespassed a little and it still is gorgeous...the place was sold after I moved out and it's for sale again... Arnold and Maria bought a house up there but Maria didn't like it and Arnold is a big doofus anyway...Arnold is no John Wayne

the present owners changed the entrance but there's still the big yellow foreman's house and lots of lemon and avocado trees as it was a working ranch...

it is an historical ranch...the reason I love Carpinteria...great western ag tradition with huge open spaces that I hope we don't lose...

and the children of the night crying out their songs

Laugh Laugh

I thought I'd die, it seemed so funny to me


today the News-Press and  Wendy's #1 waterboy Scott Steepleton had a front page story on Darryl Genis....I read it and just was so lame and Darryl blames his dead accountant!!!

Darryl Genis in the News-Press: "I pled guilty to not filing the three tax returns, because even though I was advised by my then accountant not to file them-and my gut told me it was wrong-I followed his advice," Mr. Genis told the News-Press. The accountant has since died.

the accountant has since died???

and dead men don't talk....

Juke Box Hero

he's a  juke box hero

rain? no there will be no rain...don't be fooled....outhouses will be the next big thing and will save tons, no- make that thousands of acre-feet of water...a gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs

DAY THREE: nothing on the front page of the News-Press about News-Press pal DUI lawyer Darryl Genis and his guilty plea for tax evasion..TAX EVASION! least Darryl didn't kill anyone

but there was a story about Spring Morrissey and her DUI issue..unfortunately, a lady died and Spring was arrested for DUI...such a waste of two lives... but I can assure you, Spring won't be knocking on Darryl's law office door for her DUI representation...

and then the story by Scott Steepleton about the Jesus Bus...GLORY BE!! SCOTT DONE FOUND RELIGION!!

in 2015, Scott rushed to defend pal Darryl on the front page! (and blame the DA)

the Jesus Bus is on tour to stop abortions..especially the ones at Planned Parenthood, a fav target of Christian I got no problem defunding Planned's a nonprofit that should raise its own money, not depend on tax money..and it would probably get all those Christians kooks to go away

but why isn't there a Jesus Bus on tour to stop drunk driving? or a bus tour to stop wars...doesn't Jesus care about that?? well, touring on a bus with a bunch of goofy religious fanatics won't stop abortions....what will stop abortions is sex education and these folks are anti-sex education unless it's abstinence only..but that will never work...people are wired to have sex and ignorance breeds unwanted pregnancies, STDs and so miscarriages are God's abortions so the topic of ABORTION will never be settled....and the GOV"T needs ot stay out of the issue which should be a woman's decision ultimately....

oh and that guy from Lompoc, the armpit of the county, is on trial for sex with children...that's what he's accused of, the old lewd and lascivious charge...this guy was Citizen Of The Year and held some religious sway over Lompocians...I don't know if he's guilty because the court room appears to be a circus..and with Judge Denise de Bellefeuille and Judge Flores presiding, it's kinda like having Judge Brian Hill or Daffy Duck presiding...
the Lompoc guy will get his case dismissed, I bet

Jane, what's next on the juke box? another song to keep me sane

The Cheater

Look out for the cheater,  Make way for the fool hearted clown

it's clear to me that instead of investigating the SBPD, Peter Lance should have been investigating his own lawyer, Darryl Genis!!

so I told you about the IRS sending me a letter...about charitible contributions..they wanted more info from me so I sent them a letter telling them they had enough info and to send me my little they finally sent me my $164 which may not sound like alot but it's groceries, coffee and a paper, a carwash, some fine wine and broasted chicken and the cash should last me a few weeks!
(oh, and a Chinese massage!) 

News-Press pro-DUI campaign

if you are honest and conscientious like me, the IRS has no business fucking with you and you need to stand up to them when they do...however, if you willfully try to cheat the hangman, you will get strung up

now, I've written extensively about DUIs and the system that enables them....the lawyers, newspapers and other scoundrels that encourage drunk driving as a civil right...chief among this group of assholes is Wendy and the News-Press..Wendy is an asshole, you know it and I know it and now she knows it! hahaha..she, Nipper, and Scott Steepleton lent a helping hand to Peter Lance and his DUI lawyer, Darryl Genis in 2011 when Lance got busted for DUI by the awesomely effective Santa Barbara police DUI team....

then Lance, who calls himself an 'investigative journalist' ran to the News-Press and wrote a five-part or seven-part series on his arrest..all in an attempt to get out of his DUI ...his series was a lame attempt to discredit the SB cops who arrested's all in this blog somewhere...and everywhere else

the anti-cop/anti-gov't News-Press was in cahoots with Lance and Genis, printing largely fictional and biased stories against the officer at the time, Kasi Beutel who survived the attempted character assassination....

Darryl and Scott all lovey-dovey

but Lance's case finally got dismissed on a (bogus) civil rights issue so said Judge Brian Hill..the same judge who lets guys off for killing little puppies...

ok so I told you all these guys were creeps and not to be trusted and I read in EDHAT today that DUI lawyer Darryl Genis pled guilty to tax evasion!! willfully failing to pay taxes to the tune of over $600000!! and now Darryl is in deep shit...of his own doing...

I wonder how Scott Steepleton at the News-Press is going to react....will he write a story on Darryl? or will he praise his pal for fighting the government?? or just take kissy-poo pictures with him

see, this whole crowd of clowns is dishonest and like I said, Karma and Justice walk hand in hand

as the judge's eagle promenades

Run Through The Jungle

don't look back

I like bees and they like me as I've said before...I respect them and give them their space and don't poison them....not the white bees aka honeybees nor the black bees aka Africanized bee...I've heard the Africanized bees are more violent than the normal bees and the Africanized bees have bigger stingers or so the racists would have me believe...

recently I read the SBHS theme for homecoming dance was 'Jungle Fever' and that set off a wave of protest...Jungle Fever is a term racists use to describe a tender white girl's passion for black dudes...this takes us back to the segregation days when blacks were lynched by cheering white crowds, hung from southern poplar trees to swing in the breeze...

the Civil War was fought over slavery and the south lost...all men are created equal, only some they more equal than others..and women had to fight for equality maybe that's why they like black guys..the Kardashian gals have jungle fever except the prettiest one, Kourtney

but anyway I was out hiking and saw a big bee fly around and land on the asphalt, close to where my truck was parked...I looked a little closer and the bee was killing an Oregon Tiger beetle or similar insect... I crept closer again and took a picture then realized it was a Yellow Jacket, not a bee..a wasp I guess it is...I took another pic and it flew up and towards me and chased me up a trail...these guys are much more aggressive than any ordinary bee so you gotta be careful...

eventually he realized I was not a threat and took off...

but he stopped mid-flight, turned around and said "you didn't do anything really, but Katy Did"

Viva Las Vegas

bright light city gonna set my soul, gonna set my soul on fire

last night's debate in Vegas was good and Donald as usual sounded nuts..babbling...Hillary beat him bad...Trump says if he loses the election there will be a pussy riot!

ok so Wendy starts bragging that she made the national news as being the only paper in the USA to endorse Donald'll recall Wendy also endorsed Orly Taitz, the Birther Queen who ran for senate or whatever and lost badly...Donald and Orly are both birthers..

but what Wendy says is not true...the News-Press was not mentioned by national media as being the only paper in the USA to endorse Trump...I looked and searched and couldn't find anything on a major level...the only thing I found was the National Enquirer as being the first MAJOR newspaper to endorse Trump....the Natioanl Enquirer is a gossip rag

Wendy's was a single note endorsement and the first editorial endorsement was from the St Joseph News-Press in Missouri (same company that owns KEYT)

from the web: Well, it only took until 23 days before the election, but we finally have our first American daily newspaper editorial endorsing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the general election. It was published Sunday in the St. Joseph News-Press (circulation 26,000) of northwest Missouri, and brings the unofficial Wikipedia count of endorsements to Hillary Clinton 147, Gary Johnson 6, and Donald Trump 2 (the other being a single note in the iconoclastic Santa Barbara News-Press). Fifteen papers have declined to endorse, and another 9 just urged readers to not vote Trump, so you could plausibly argue that the GOP candidate has -7 daily newspaper endorsements

the headline should be: Two Insignificant Daily Newspapers, Both Named News-Press, Endorse Trump

anyway, I was willing to give Trump a look but as time went on, he became unhinged...conspiracy theories, racism, sexism and just crazy teabagger stuff comes out of his mouth...."lock her up" he tells his flock about what he'll do to Hillary without regard to due process....grab 'em by the pussy he tells others

the News-Press goes on to parrot what Trump says and what Trump says is the sky is green...but it is not green

America does not need a wall at the Mexican border, it needs a history lesson

Wendy says Donald will surround himself with the best people to make America Great Again but if you look at his campaign, it is total chaos so he can't pick a winning team!!

Wendy and Donald have the same delusions..they claim the economy is in decline because the Treasury keeps printing free money, so that's why we have a 20 trillion dollar debt

the economy is fine, the stock market is up, American companies like AMAZON are making a killing..and so are Apple, and the banks are doing good...the Obama people simply put in some checks and balances so we don't go back to the Bush era..that's where the trouble started with the expensive Iraq invasion, the WALL Street free-fall and the mortgage crisis and on and on....two terms of Obama have corrected some of the mess Bush made, but it will take more time and less involvement in other countries and their civil wars...let them fight their own battles

the DOW stands at 18000 today; when Bush left it was at 8000....of course the DOW is a mirror of the economy

Donald Trump can't handle strong women..he whines, goes on twitter rampages trying to get revenge, can't stand a free press and acts like spoiled brat

Trump has no business being the President Of The United States any more than Wendy has any business owning the News-Press (which she bought with divorce money that she did not work for or earn) and there's more choices for POTUS than Hillary and Donald..

but the question is why do newspapers endorse anybody?

it's the biggest conflict of interest out there!

Throwing It All Away

throwing it all away


Bernie Sanders should keep his mouth shut about stocks..there's many small investors who lost some money when he dissed some drug stocks...a business he knows nothing about..he set off a panic and now we play the waiting game..oh the stock will rise no thanks to Bernie, but he's a stupid old man and a pothead to boot

now I was watching Justin Fareed and Salud Carbajal debate and they both looked a little retarded..seriously...think alpha males...

but to my surprise they both were in favor of Prop 64, legalizing marijuana.. Salud thinks we can regulate it like alcohol and it'll be fine and it won' will make it easier for people to get pot and get high which is a silly way to spend your time

there's not much difference between stoners and drunks..their goal is the same: try to escape reality which is impossible!!

I read the story of a girl named Spring who was arrested for DUI in Santa Maria...another driver was killed and Spring faces a ten year sentence if found guilty...and she's had some behavioral issues in the past...again, the cops become the babysitters with people who get too drunk to function

from public arrest records:
Arrested For DUI Alcohol W/BAC > .08
DUI Alcohol/Drugs With Bodily Injury
Driving While Under Influence W/Prior Specificed Conviction

Previous Arrest History
Resist/Obstruct/Delay Peace Officer
Battery On Peace Officer/Emergency Personnel Lompoc

Spring of course is innocent until a court convicts her...but what a shame...32 year old gal with rocking future throws it away just to get drunk...

but I don't know why people think they can drink and drive..

they will always end up in a ditch, sooner or later

Family Of Man

Prices are rising, the devil's to pay
Moving the mountain that got in the way
Prayer books and meetings to find a plan
Deciding the fate of the family of man

I went into Santa Barbara for an exorcism or to see about an exorcism

well it seems the police are finally getting the respect they deserve...fundraisers at the Sod Farm (the polo fields next to the other polo fields) in Summerland, where the Carpinteria avocado groves and pot farms kiss the polo ponies and the foothills

locally the police are getting some respect so all the pro-DUI/anti-cop stuff from the News-Press Three Amigos, Peter Lance and Darryl Genis and Scott Steepleton, BACKFIRED like an old Toyota!! they tried to disparage some Santa Barbara cops to get Lance out of a DUI trial, but the Three Amigos were proven to be liars and lost all credibility...

did you ever notice cops? their uniforms? they look like priests


now, I was in Santa Barbara yesterday right around the time of the water main break on Milpas..did I cause, you can't blame me for everything..the family of man has decided to bury the water pipes, some 1000 years old and the cops were right there directing traffic and taking care of I got my burger which I'll eat later but first a trip to the dental know when I'm sitting on the chair and she's sticking her fingers in my mouth, leaning in and cleaning up my trashy pie hole and caressing my gums and so on, what do I think about? baseball, the burger, and how far up her pu**y I can stick my thing I know she's done cleaning and I'm totally satisfied and we're all happy

as I walk out the dentist door I see an old cop pal....he was parked by the dentist which is close to the Trinity church and he tells me everything is good and getting better at the SBPD and there's a Lieutenant in the future for another well-known lady cop who struck fear in every drunk driver in Santa Barbara, especially middle-aged drunk white men....

well good! Justice is a funny thing and so is karma..

so I'm talking to this cop who's parked close to the church and dressed in black or real dark blue... and asked him if he could perform an exorcism....

ON WENDY!!! hahahaha!

I'm Looking Through You

where did you go?

with the drought entering the sixth year and the advent of Donald Trump, his Russian wife and his Stepford children overtaking the White House, I have come to the conclusion I don't know anything anymore...I thought I knew something, what did I know?

maybe the great American experiment has failed and we should go back to the Mother Country, England...the Brits got more class!

I look to the skies like a fool for rain..a 20% chance of rain this weekend only means an 80% chance it won't rain...

a drop of rain is all I axe instead people are walking around parched and dry...seemingly it is raining everyplace else on earth except here in Southern California

and the sun is hot..been hot for five years..beating down making me sweat, necessitating at least two showers per day, not good in a drought..but the showers I take means that water is lost...down the drain..but what if I had a septic tank? I could use that gray water and keep the lawns fed...but remember, Heal The Ocean and the phony celebs went on a bender and got lots of beach communities at great expense to hook up to the sewer which essentially wastes water...

I look outside and see some light fluffy clouds and blues's warm and sticky and there's some confused elderly folks, stuffed into color-clashing Lance Armstrong-like riding clothes..peddling their bikes to some Peloton graveyard...

what does all this mean?

I don't know

The Raven

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
This it is, and nothing more,'

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
`Sir,' said I, `or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'
Merely this and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
`Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -
'Tis the wind and nothing more!'

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -
Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
With such name as `Nevermore.'

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -
Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'
Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
`Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,
Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster
Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore -
Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore
Of "Never-nevermore."'

But the raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door;
Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking `Nevermore.'

This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o'er,
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
`Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee
Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! -
Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted -
On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore -
Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!
By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore -
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels name Lenore?'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -
`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!

House At Pooh Corner

Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do, got a honey jar stuck on his nose

I'm no bear, but I like honey and I know bees make honey so I like bees..therefore, I like honey bees

I like pussy too-FYI

bees are in trouble with all the stupid thngs that people do to them... from using pesticides, to destroying habitat, to killing bees because they are "feral"....that's what they did on the Channel Islands years ago...killed them..I was watching a public TV show about the Channel Islands recently and the guy most responsible for the thousands of animals killed, Russel Galipeau, was talking about the newest threat: the evils of Asian kelp...Galipeau is obese and a joke but somehow still keeps his job and benefits.. I think he should be in jail for animal abuse, but apparently, I'm the only one..

but here's what they did -verbatim- and I find it unbelieveable that this crap passes for science...they actually introduced mites to help kill the bees!!!



In 1988, we began to remove European honey bee

colonies from Santa Cruz Island, California, in order to restore
native bee populations and pollination systems in the
Channel Islands National Park. Of the five islands in the
Park, only Santa Cruz Island had honey bees, introduced
more than 120 years ago. Initially, we located colonies by
improved beehunt techniques and began to eliminate colonies
on the eastern half of the island at the end of the third
season. We also recorded swarms trapped in decoy hives
and in cavities formerly occupied by colonies, eventually
tallying nearly 300 colonies on the 25,000 hectare island.
Midway in the program, drastic changes in the ecology (e.g.,
cattle removal, spread of exotic weeds, abundant rainfall)
led us to employ a biological control agent to eliminate the
remaining colonies. In December 1993, January 1994, and
February 1994, we loaded a total of 85 mites (Varroa
jacobsoni, parasitic only on bees of the genus Apis) onto
foraging bees at a few sites on the eastern half of the island.
Colony mortality remained unchanged in 1994 and 1995 but
escalated in 1996 and 1997. All 117 of the routinely monitored
feral colonies had perished by January 1998.

Keywords: Feral honey bees, Apis mellifera, native bees,
ecosystem restoration, exotic weeds, biological control,
Varroa jacobsoni, Santa Cruz Island.


An earlier contribution in this series (Wenner and

Thorp 1994) provided comprehensive coverage of the rationale,
goals, scope, and progress to date in our long-term
feral honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) removal project on Santa
Cruz Island. The question addressed at that time: Will removing
an introduced insect species change habitat quality
for native plants and pollinators and also restore and/or increase
species diversity and abundance?
That earlier report placed the study into ecological
perspective, reviewed foraging behavior and the role of

honey bees in ecosystems, outlined the seasonal sequence
for nectar and pollen production by native and introduced
plants, and summarized the distribution, abundance, and
mortality of feral honey bee colonies as of that time. That
report also contained a summary of results from studies of

plant visitation by insects; honey bee removal on the east
half of Santa Cruz Island had altered the relative insect representation
on plant species under study in favor of native
forms (Figures 2 and 3 in Wenner and Thorp 1994).
By the end of the first five years of this project, several
events forced a change in approach. In particular, after
removal of most sheep and cattle, exotic weeds (a primary
food resource for the exotic honey bees) dramatically increased
in island coverage. In addition, the long-term series
of drought years had ended. Those two factors combined
provided a vastly increased food supply for honey bee colonies,
enhancing colony replication via swarming.
Unexpectedly, and a factor in line with our goals, another
development impinged on our project, as outlined
briefly in the Wenner and Thorp (1994) report. Some honey
bee colonies in Florida and Wisconsin had perished due to a
parasitic mite (Varroa jacobsoni; Oudemans 1904) infestation
the very month (October, 1987) that we received approval
to initiate this project.

licorice and honey...yummy!!


That voracious, blood-sucking mite had crossed over
from parasitization of the Asian honey bee (Apis cerana F.)
to the European honey bee (A. mellifera) three decades earlier
in central Asia (e.g., Mobus and de Bruyn 1993) and
became rapidly and unwittingly transported around the world
by beekeepers and bee researchers. Within only a decade
after first discovery in the United States, varroa mites occurred
in all of the mainland states and Alaska (Wenner and
Bushing 1996). Colony mortality was recorded in Ventura
County, California as early as October 1989.
We recognized the inevitability of invasion of Santa
Cruz Island by varroa mites and pre-empted that eventuality
with a deliberate use of those mites as a biological control
agent against the European honey bee, in line with our...


what can I do about all these crazy biologists killing honeybees and everything they percieve a non-native threat...what can I do to get them to stop?

grab 'em by the pussy, I guess

Eminence Front

it's a put-on

so I'm watching the Brides of Fu Manchu and it's a bunch of scantily-clad women running around with knives, stabbing people; Fu Manchu standing around like a breadstick; his pretty daughter casting spells...and some beheadings.... and oh, a snake pit! it was pretty bad and way cheesy

I couldn't help but wonder though as I watched the 2nd debate, if Donald Trump was under Fu's daughter's spell...he lumbered around the stage like a big fat zombie as if in a trance and looked like he wanted to stab Hillary in the pussy with his steely knives!

but there's two things Donald must do to get back on track: drop the email and Benghazi already knows everything about us Americans and Benghazi was a witchhunt...the commission was headed by goofy Trey Gowdy from South Carolina who can't even keep people in his own state safe from murderous racists... in church no less!... so how is Hillary supposed to stop violence in Libya? the contracted security squad failed miserably to protect the diplomats and when the rubber hit the road, they all blamed Hillary....why didn't they blame Reagan when 200 American troops got killed in Beirut after their barracks were raided??

and then there was Melania, who always looks like she's in a trance or ready to suck your blood, wearing a red dress...with a "pussy bow"

a pussy bow!! this is one damn sexy political season

come and join the party dressed to kill

the man with the Midas Touch

ok..I see this gal on the beach and go up and grab her pussy and kiss her because the next POTUS, Donald Trump says it's ok...

well not really but look, guys talk stupid, ( I bet girls do, too) try to outdo each other in private...if all my conversations were recorded, I would be in jail as I've said some things that would shock you

now, the election is getting interesting by degrees and I won't sit this one out...Salud and Justin Fareed are getting funny with Justin defending his honor in the News-Press from Salud's attack ads....the News-Press, a most dishonorable publication is the wrong place to defend one's honor

Justin has no experience and still works for his mom and dad..still tied to mommy's apron strings..he's their little Justin before you can change the culture in Washington, you need to move out of your parents' house!

and Andy Caldwell, Wendy's Guest Editorial writer says that Kamala Harris, who is running for U.S. Senate, is an evil woman... and Andy works for Wendy!! hahaha!

I don't think Kamala's evil but in the sack she be pretty wicked I bet...but Andy says in San Francisco, a sanctuary city, illegals are gunning down people in the street...well, every city with a church is a sanctuary city so what's the big deal??


and then there's Planned Parenthood that Kamala supports..did you know PP sells aborted fetuses and body parts...well the Christian terrorists are trying to pin that on Planned Parenthood just in time for Halloween....Andy is a big Halloweenie and is no different than an Islamic terrorist....

in America, the Constitution rules, not the bible....

I don't know what will become of Trump, but he's starting to look more and more like Goldfinger

you know, the Pussy Galore guy

Do You Believe In Magic

in a young girl's heart


hey man, local growers, brewers and kennels come out of hiding!!

REMEMBER: today is always the best day!!!

Lately the moon has seared her image in my brain, like a tatoo...the wandering path of the October moon..the way it lingers and just seemingly appears...the moon image at night in that dark sky is very sweet and slightly far, this October has been epic

and I hear John Sebastian is coming to SOHO! darn, I hate that place...bad acoustics, bad seats and the ever-present restaurant buzz is annoying..please John, do the Carp Theater or the Lobero...and I found out at the Who concert, John and Pete are good friends!


but today, the Carp Avocado Fest continues...oh they changed the name to the California Avocado Fest years ago, but they should change it's Carpinteria's festival and everyone is welcome but give credit where credit is chicks, pricey but tasty fish tacos, cold lemonade with hot chick....and good vibes...good music at main stage with guitar gal Xenia I think her name is...she's pretty and good...pretty good!! gave me a big smile and a boner to boot!

now, the moon..I've seen the blood moon, the red moon, the blue moon, the buck moon, the harvest moon, the supermoon, even the black moon which especially interested me

...and I think we have a new moon..the Avocado Moon this weekend for the Avocado's fitting that the avocado is a big money's healthy and yummy and requires patience to eat..

you need to wait for an avocado to get ripe before you enjoy it, like a girl

do you believe like I believe??

Who Are You

who who who who...

so it's Oct 6 -Thursday and I get to the Who concert at the Bowl around 4:45 PM and score a parking spot on Milpas close to the Bowl..they let us in at 5:00 PM, at least up to the bottom of the steps...we hang around the Jerry Garcia glen, then a half hr later we get to go upstairs to our was hot dry October day....the evening cooled down pretty nice and comfortable.. I got a gorgeous view of the ocean with the crescent moon peering over my right shoulder

at 6:30 PM the opening act Tal Wilkenfeld and her band started playing some techno rock...pretty good...Tal is on bass and singing lead..then she switched to acoustic guitar and started banging away...two real good songs...I mean real good...the crowd is coming in slowly so Tal warmed up our eardrums...

then at about 7:15 PM the crew got things ready for the the time they came on stage, the Bowl was full... some drunks behind me yelling stupid stuff..the good thing about drunks is the alcohol gets to them early, so they disappear early... but most everyone was cool..and NO SMOKING was allowed due to Daltrey's asthma...

halfway thru the show some dufus hippie next to me lights up a joint and I tell him to put it out or I'll bust his head, and he does...geez.. I don't want to get high from second-hand pot smoke from some dumbass hippie

the stage was set up with a giant screen and we saw some Who history..and throughout the set, the screen was used very effectively for close-ups and even some politics and a cool light show...and it was never a distraction

then the Who Show started...Pete Townshend, tall and lanky, bounded on stage with guitar in hand and Roger Daltrey took the mic...the crowd was in a delirium as the Who played all the great songs...Pete doing his trademark windmill guitar strum...Roger's voice was strong as ever and if you make an argument he's the best rock singer ever, I won't disagree...but he is human and took tumble after tripping over a rubber block that wasn't supposed to be on the stage...fell on his ass!!

but he got up and laughed it off...crowd just cheered

when they did - Love, Reign O'er Me..from QUADROPHENIA, Daltrey hit a note that made me irrationally emotional and almost was beautiful and powerful..."rain on me Only love can bring the rain"

Pete Townshend was upbeat telling jokes about old people like Joe Walsh and Bruce Sprinsteen ...he played these very expensive guitars, Gibson and Fender, and uses them as orchestral instruments...the guy is a musical genius

the band was so tight and good I thought they were piping in recorded music for a minute...but no, it was all live...Zak Starkey is one hell of a drummer!!

the crowd was up and singing all the choruses and it sounded really beautiful....Behind Blue Eyes was an epiphany!! TEENAGE WASTELAND..IT'S ONLY TEENAGE WASTELAND!!! I Can See For Miles and Miles and Miles!! Talking 'Bout My G-G-G-Generation...oh yeah, I was singing too

beautiful young girls and some foxy older gals filled the seats with equal appeal for young bucks and older dudes...

but it's nearly impossible to explain what I witnessed last night...the Who, icons of the British Invasion way back in the 1960s, gave the best concert I've ever had to be there

and I'm glad I was

I Kissed A Girl

and I liked it...

I see Cat Cora's name on the SB court calendar alot...end of marriage kinda deal...Cat is a celeb chef and lives in Santa Barbara I guess and became infamous for a drunk driving episode where she bumped into some car ahead of her on State St and started cussing the driver out for was Cat's fault for drinking and driving, not the other driver

but anyway she made amends and promised no more DUI and did some charity cookoffs...

then I see that Cat and Real Housewife Brandi Glanville may have had a fling but Brandi called it off after two weeks.. both these chicks may have had some plastic surgery to erase time from their faces but both are not bad looking...and that's always presented a problem with me: pretty lesbians

ugly lesbians I got no problem with because who cares..but the pretty gals I can just see them licking and sucking naked...what's better than two tits? four tits!! I condone it but I don't understand it

I'm not sure if the fling broke up Cat's marriage to her wife but seemed to be going on during the divorce

web: Brandi Glanville 'had lesbian fling with Cat Cora amidst the celebrity chef's bitter divorce battle while the two filmed new reality show'

Brandi was married to the guy who left her for LeAnn well is the best revenge and revenge is a dish best served cold...

but if I ever find myself coming between two pretty lesbians, I'll let ya know

I dwelt alone, In a world of moan,
And my soul was a stagnant tide,
Till the fair and gentle Eulalie became my blushing bride —
Till the yellow-haired young Eulalie became my smiling bride

this morning I got up and stumbled around...I couldn't speak, I could only moan... not unlike Frankenstein

now, how am I supposed to find a black moon in a black sky?'s a question I posited or a postulate I questioned many times over the last week...I know the black moon is there, sailing low across the's there but I can't see it..perhaps a metaphor for having eyes but not using them enough...I saw the black moon rise in the morning a few days ago, just a slight silver shadow over the mountains, then today it set over the ocean in the early evening..the moon rising in the morning confused the fuck outta me

it looked simply odd and wonderful, that of which I could see...but a good way to start off October

I watched Young Frankenstein and laughed alot.. a fitting tribute to Gene Wilder...then I saw The Son Of Frankenstein...horror movies I've loved since I was a kid...The Son Of Frankenstein was the film Young Frankenstein lovingly spoofed...

so watching these two films side by side is a kick because they are funny and spooky...a cool old house with big shadows at night and a rainstorm with thunderous lightning: Dr Frankestein played by Basil Rathbone assures us through his wife: nothing in nature is horrifying when one understands it

the wife and kid turned it into a romantic-comedy-horror masterpiece...the Inspector with the wooden arm tells the kid the arm is not his and the little kid asks "well, whose is it?"

the Moon in a purple sky
