WILL YOU SUPPORT ME BY MAKING A DONATION TODAY? In 1988, I attended the first tour of the AIDS Quilt at the Castle in Boston. Anyone with even a shred of humanity couldn't leave the Castle's hall without feeling helpless and lost at what they had witnessed. Being in that... Continue reading

Txomin must be having a good laugh. He wrote telling me that I looked like and Olsen on the 16th. Jane asks me to tell you all what I ate for lunch at the White Turkey Drive-In in Conneaut, OH: Large Marge Hot Turkey Sandwich with bacon and Cheese Root Beer Float Chili cheese fries Onion Rings Then I noticed that they had black raspberry frappes... so I downed one of those too. e.g. I am on the wasting disease diet.

George! Actually, it's Cow HAMPSTER. And, yes, I don't have the low-down on any San Francisco nicknames used by locals - clue us in! But, you're right, SFO was entirely appropriate given our push-off point. =)
