Back at the brothel
11/2/05, 4:43pm (Last Edited: 11/2/05, 4:45pm)
You know my tradition. At this time of year (on or near my birthday), I make a day trip out to the desert, usually to Randsburg, Johannesburg and Red Rock Canyon. Last year I went to Vegas instead (but did the Randsburg trip in December, when I also made it to Death Valley). Yesterday afternoon I was getting everything ready to repeat last December's trip, when I figured... Why make it a day trip? So, I called the Motel 6 in Beatty and reserved a room for one night (I wanted to try their free high speed Internet, which as I said in another message, I can't get to work). I stopped off at Randsburg and Johannesburg first, then drove through DV to Beatty where I checked in and told them to make it two nights instead...

As we headed to our room, I realized this was the first time Ashley has ever been in an elevator. In all the motels and hotels I've stayed in, the ones with elevators were always on trips I made without her (usually just Vegas and Reno). She wasn't too sure about it. She's not very fond of small enclosed rooms (just try to get her to walk into a cell in a ghost town's old jail!), but she reluctantly followed me in. When the door started to close, she panicked and wanted to run out. I had to clamp down on the leash. We'll see if she gets used to it...

Of course, one of the first things I had to do was drive by that brothel with the airplane out front again. I found another one near that old abandoned service station I posted pictures of after my last visit to the area. That one doesn't look near as nice. (From the outside, of course. I wouldn't know how the interiors compare.)

I was wondering if our tradition each year was to pay a visit to a brothel.

I have taken K.C. on several trips but I don't think I have ever put him on an elevator. I think we have always used the stairs. He has always been on his P's and Q's in hotels other than an oocaisional bark when someone comes by the door noisily. Generally it is just a low warning growl.

Well, there's also the White Horse Saloon and Floozie House in Randsburg. I've always stopped there to take a picture, too...

Thursday morning in Beatty
11/3/05, 7:33am
Watching the news this morning, I just saw a commercial for a Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas, using a talking chihuahua as the spokes-dog. I wonder how long it will take for the lawsuit to be filed.

I had breakfast this morning at Rita's Cafe in the small, yet surprisingly very nice Stagecoach Casino next door. I ordered the Country Fried Steak, for $7.95. They brought me a platter with half a cow, two eggs, hash browns, and a separate plate piled high with biscuits and gravy. Seriously, this could easily feed two people! There's no way I could finish all that. Also, when I checked in at the Motel 6, they gave me several coupons, two of which get me $1 off at that cafe. Not a bad breakfast for $6.95!

The other coupons for the casino include free drinks, a couple free rolls of nickels, and doubled bets at the table games. Another gets me 5 cents off per gallon at the gas station.

"They" say that those coupon books are THE way to go in Vegas if you don't get suckered into playing more than you want.

Those guys with the dollar hot dog and the dollar shrimp cocktail know THAT game really well!

I've heard that too, but I must be going to the wrong places. The coupon books I've received in Vegas didn't have anything I would call useful. I'll just have to keep trying...

Might be an interesting internet search that you could do before your trip. Maybe you can print some coupons at home and then use em.

On the other hand, I don't think there is a coupon for a buck, foot long hot dog....

Offhand, I'd guess the only major difference is that glaciers are on land while icebergs are in water. Also, my dictionary says icebergs are often pieces of polar glaciers that have broken off and dropped into the ocean.

The icebergs are a Jewish family Distant relatives of the Goldbergs

Carol and Robert correct me if I am wrong....A glacier is a moving sheet of ice. It can be hundreds of feet thick and it only moves a few inches a year. When its end terminates in a body of water, pieces of glacier ice fall off (calve) and float away, these become small ice bergs.

Icebergs, like the one that got the Titanic, are pieces of the Arctic ice flow that have broken off and float away into the North Atlantic.

As far as taste goes, I remember the lyric from a Frank Zappa song: "Look out where the huskies go and don't eat none of that yellow snow."

Can you imagine living somewhere where its that cold all the time? Talk about not understanding some people. I think that would be just miserable.

A Glacier is like a massive river of ice. If you look at my picture of the glacier you can see the mass of it as it comes down the mountain to the sea. It is fed by precipitation and can grow and shrink. It is on land and moves slowly sculpting the land beneath it with the sheer mass and weight of the ice. The glacier does not necessarily have to end in water. Icebergs are much smaller than glaciers and are chunks of ice, some quite large in their own right, floating in the water. Icebergs can be created by glaciers as Larry explained.

Back in the 50's there was an american soldier that walked from South Korea into North Korea. Of course, he was used as propoganda and he lived in North Korea for many years and only recently was allowed to leave. He had a number of interviews since being back, but one of the things that interested me was that, he said that while he was in North Korea..for like 30+ years...he never had HEAT. This would make sense because a great deal of the asian part of our planet has been deforested and fuel is very valuable. In places like North Korea, fuel is strickly for cooking.

So..how do you live in North Korea..cold climate..without heat? Well..gues what..people do it all the time! A heated home is relatively a new thing. In fact, I have friends in like Sweden that certainly do heat their homes, but not to the level that we do here.

In these days of higher natural gas prices (which, BTW is artificial and comes with no real reasoning other than profit for Bush's buddies..still!) it might make some sense to walk around with sweat shirts or sweaters!

You always manage to bring an interesting aspect to notes here BB. Thanks for that.

Actually I prefer the house below 70 and wear sweats if Im cold.
It seems healthier to me. Cant get away with that when Mr B is around. He and the cats like it a bit warmer.

Bisbee is at about 6,000' in the mountains. The climate there should be very similar to Big Bear. Cold and snowy in the winter, no more than 90 in the summer.

These days I don't even THINK about turning the heat on until it is well below 65 in the house. I like the warm..which is why I live where I live...but I HATE the price of energy and seeing as how I have plenty of sweats and such..I am happier being a cold miser than a warm "mark" for the energy companies.

Our very best friends have just purchased a lovely house in Wisconsin and will be retiring and moving there. She said the 2000 square foot home is heated with a hot water type system. Never heard of that and will get more particulars when they get home.

That is usually "radiant" heat that either comes from radiators (old school) or from tubes that are placed in the floors when they construct the house. Both have hot water going through them.

I HEAR that the under-floor radiators are VERY comfortable.

Hmmm so if your water heater was solar wouldnt that save you a bundle? Interesting concept. Course not in Wisconsin where it snows all winter but why wouldnt it work here?

Well, energy wise, there is no free ride. Using the sun to heat your house is not a bad idea..but that happens anyway, right? And using like, solor panels to "store" energy for use later won't last that long when it comes to home heating. (You would go through a tank of stored heat in a few minutes.)

Actually, there IS a method of storing the sun's heat for use for heat later in the day. They have these glass rooms on the south side of a house, and these rooms have large, concrete floors and sometimes even walls and concrete "furniture". All that concrete will hold and store heat really well so when the night comes, it releases it's heat. I have seen these things on TV and have heard about them for years. (Passive solor heat)

Neat pictures!

Regarding the "Keep Out" signs at Rhyolite, I think they are there more for releasing the property owners, or whomever controls the ghost town, from liability should someone get injured or killed, rather than to actually keep people out. Its known as "Assumption of the Risk". Basically, if I remember correctly, if a person "encounters a known, appreciated risk" and proceeds anyway, the property owner cannot be held liable if the person is injured. Rob could explain this better than I can.

That's what I was assuming, and I think I said something to that effect in the description of one of the pictures there. I just hated to see them though. When I first visited Rhyolite three or four years ago, I mentioned how surprised I was to see the buildings were openly accessible. Most of the old, abandoned buildings I'd seen in California had a tall chain-link fence all around them. One exception is a large stone hulk of a building in Diamond Springs, just south of Placerville. I took a couple pictures of it the first time I saw it. By the next time I went up there, the fence was up. Funny thing though... Last year I got email from El Dorado County asking for permission to use one of those pictures on the county's web site. Apparently nobody at the Chamber of Commerce thought to get a picture of the building before the fence went up and now they couldn't get a clear shot at it.

As far as I know, Rhyolite is either government or state property. The bottle house and the railroad station are the only privately owned buildings there.

Unfortunately people sue for just about anything. Especially if its state property. Then people assume, well, the state has plenty of money.

I imagine, like everything else in the law, just having the signs doesn't completely release them from liability. Rob, what do you think?

Speaking of folks being sue happy...what limits do you all carry on your auto insurance? We upped ours for a minimal amount more. Least it'll take more for them to get our house now.

We just upped ours too. I'd have to look to see what the new limits are.

I'm not sure what you mean. There's one in that gallery. I have about 20 or 30 more, including a couple I posted on his page at Find-A-Grave: http://tinyurl.com/bb8ya

Yes, it's in their gallery of pictures from the county. I can't remember the address for that page, though. I'll have to look for it.

I'd have to check my policy. I don't remember the numbers offhand, but I know it was only a little more than the minimum required. I didn't go very much higher than that.

It looks like the county took their photo gallery page down, but here's what it looked like, courtesy of Google's cache: http://tinyurl.com/89g35

My picture is a little more than halfway down. Just look for my name (Lonnie, not Thomas). There's more than one -- I don't remember giving them that cemetery picture!

Interesting...I wonder why they took that site down. I liked the pics!

We have a good friend of ours that lives in Placerville. Looks like we may have to visit!

For about $20 more a year we tripled our coverage. Might be worth looking into.

That whole area is a great place to visit, and Placerville is so close to Lake Tahoe which is about as close as you can get to heaven while still alive.

I would have expected a bigger increase than that. I'll have to look into it when it's time for me to renew my policy.

You're close. It's called Founder's Day, and they're dressed like the 1850's.
