Smoked Salmon Schmear

Say that ten times fast!

Yes, my meals today have all been fully paleo.  If my caveman ancestors lived in a strip mall with a Starbucks, a McDonald's, and a Noah's Bagels, that is. 

I was up early this morning to drive down to Salem to a court proceeding (for our office, not me personally -- I am pure as the driven snow ya know), in the car by 7:30 a.m.  Shut up, it's early for me; I work four minutes from my office and often get up a little after 8:00 to be in the office around 8:30.  Anyhow, I made it all the way to downtown Salem.... at which time I got a call from my boss that our motion to postpone the trial had been granted.  I hung a U-turn and drove all the way back to L.O.  Yippee.

(Kim -- I saw a hot air balloon outside of Keizer and thought of you.  Did you see me waving at you all the way from Salem?)

To get completely random, I've got a question for you all.  Around here, there is much talk about who should foot the bill when search and rescue efforts are sent out for people who get lost or into trouble climbing Mt. Hood.  Usually in the winter and much too often after ignoring weather reports.  Many people think there should be some sort of reimbursement or else mandate GPS tracking devices, etc.  Anyhow, the news about the release of the American hikers jailed in Iran got me wondering if there is a corollary there.  As in, if you hike in or near a place like Iran, do we have to spend tax dollars to get your ass freed?  I mean, I had sympathy for their being imprisoned and all but they couldn't have picked somewhere else to hike?  Really?

Just so you don't think I'm totally heartless, here are some touchy-feeling news stories for you.

Stay in school, yo.  And put sex education back in the curriculum.  With the actual facts.

Snip snip kitty!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!  Or, caveat emptor.

Who was shooting the video for YouTube?

(okay, so those last two weren't all that touchy-feely)

I want to be a police officer in Alaska

And even better, there's an article about the officer who writes the Unalaska police blotter.

Now I must go read the back issues of the Unalaska police blotter.  It's been a long day.

  1. Unalaska police blotter ... the name alone makes me have to go check it out!

  2. There is a great entry in the police blotter about someone being distressed because a family pet was run over. The next entry is about a scuffle at a house where the fight was apparently about a family pet being run over. Classic!!
