What's Up?
Beetle Butt!

A Pinacate Beetle (AKA stink beetle) greets us by our tent door. 

They are noted for their defensive tactic of standing on its head and squirting a noxious spray.  Fortunately this one only postured, and did not squirt!

So that noxious smell I detected wasn't the beetle?!?

Abby Normal

A brainy rock found at Owhere, about the size and color of a human brain. I'm guessing the odd striations might be caused by scrapes made from a glacier, or an ancient scalpel?

Living in a van down by the river!  No it's not Matt Foley/Chris Farley.  It's Tim Johnson, living in a 4-wheel drive motorhome in Alaska.

Hellboy Jr. seems to prefer the Green Tea KitKat over the Strawberry KitKat.

So sad to see this once excellent Little sushi restaurant increase in size and decrease in quality. Portions have gotten smaller and quality of fish (once very good) has gotten poorer. An ominous sign was seeing the owner making the sushi (and not doing a very good job at it). We miss you, Max (former sushi chef here)!

Great service, and always very honest, straight-forward and friendly. I drive 20 miles out of my way to go to Community Honda because of their customer service, even though there is another Honda dealer a few miles from my home. Matt Krugman is an excellent in the service department, promptly and professionally keeping you informed of status, options, and pricing.

Friendly and fast service. Portions are huge and satisfying! Tea and soup a bit weak. Recommended if you are hungry and in a hurry (but you may want to take your time and enjoy the large meals)!
