Gas Prices

Yamadaog, We live in a capitalist country and these companies are service/product and ultimately profit driven like most public and private companies. Gas prices are going up for a host of reasons, most of which most people do not understand. Growing demand, limited supply, limited refining capacity, and fast growing middle class in Asia are all contributing to the higher gas prices. $2 gas is history and we better get used to it. Go ask a big oil company that earned $1bn last year to only earn $500mm this year. It isn't going to happen. Alternative energy sources are not the answer either because all that does is reduce the supply of gasoline and cause further inflation. Just like ethanol is doing right now to food prices. I don't know what the answer is, but boycotting isn't going to get it done.

Gas Prices

Copy And Pass Along...
Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.

If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do! Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!

I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us s end it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) .. and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)...and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers.
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!

If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all!

(If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am . so trust me on this one.

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!!

I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you!
Acting together we can make a difference.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

Keep it going

RIP Dr. Albert Hoffman

Dr. Albert Hofmann - January 11 1906 - April 29 2008

It saddens us to confirm that Dr. Albert Hofmann passed away at his home in Burg outside of Basel, Switzerland today, April 29 2008 at the age of 102 years. Dr. Hofmann was at his home with two of his caretakers, he passed away at 9am local time.

Dr Hofmann follows his late wife Anita, who passed away this past December. We do not have much more information at the moment but we will update this note once more becomes available.

We send out condolences to his family and friends and as you all to join us in celebrating the life of one of the most important scientists of the last 102 years. Dr Hofmann's discoveries have touched countless people and brought tremendous change to the world in more ways than can be counted. We are very glad that Dr Hofmann could still witness the early stages of new studies with LSD that will start in Switzerland in the near future. This matter was very important to him, we are grateful to all that were involved in getting approval for this study.

We thank you for all you have done dear Dr Hofmann, may your ways be blessed and peaceful. We will keep your spirit alive and will continue with our work.

The Albert Hofmann Foundation

Happy birthday to all who

Happy birthday to all who have shared their love and magic with the world. All who have are "famous" in their own right, and by their own right. This is the thread that binds us all. Thank you.

Re-gifter

Me And Tiger Lilly

Busted out of Barcelona riding on a train
Feeling nearly faded as her dress
Tiger Lilly ate some paella just before the rain
Farted all the way to Fi-guer-es

Well I took my old cassette from my dirty sack
Playin' slow while Lilly sang the blues
Stinky farts keeping time
Holding Lilly's spirit in mine
We finallly sang near every song that we knew

The Board's just another place to think about The Scene
The Board can cheer you up -- if you know what I mean
The internet is easy Lord, when there ain't no tour
The Board is good enough for me
Good enough for me and Tiger Lilly

With the kind, grateful folks; rapin' here is fun
Lilly shared the secrets of my soul
Standing right beside me Lord in everything I done
Lilly's spirit kept me from the cold
Nowhere never on this Board, I'll let her slip her away
Looking for memories I hope we'll find
And I'll trade all my straight friends for a single head
To be sharing Lilly's spirit, oh so KIND

The Board's just another place to think about The Scene
The Board can cheer you up -- if you know what I mean
The Internet is easy Lord, when there ain't no tour
The Board is good enough for me
Good enough for me and Tiger Lilly

yeah, I'm a re-gifter!

Happy Birthday Tiger Lilly!!

Hi i have a few new tunes

...sounds good (re the post above)...of course personally I'm up North snowed in so I won't be making an appearance....

....but, i have a few new tunes and remixes of the older ones on my page now.

The tunes are all tributes to the Dead except for On the Road which is more of a breeze through the beat scene etc (brief and not in depth but I think catchy) and Memphis Hideaway is more inspired by the Dead scene that a tribute to the band.

I hope you enjoy them.

Merry Christmas all!
