Largish boxes in The Sand Waste,
Largish boxes made of ticky tacky,
Largish boxes on the sand dunes,
Largish boxes all the same.
There’s a yellow one and a pink one
And a white one and a green one,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

Forty-Six Wild Cherry-Masked Conure Parakeet Parrot Birds Commuting Home to the Northeast

September 28th, 2015

For some reason dese boids live in Frisco’s northeast but then commute southwest for feeding on a daily basis.

So in the morning, you see them over the Western Addition going southwest and then in the evening, you see them heading back northwest, as here over the Golden Gate Park Panhandle:

I haven’t ever seen this many in one flight outside of the Coit Tower / FInancial District area.

I went looking for them about a decade ago – this was the view from the Filbert Steps:

Anywho, just recently, I saw about ten crows chasing four red-green conures over the Panhandle – I’ve never seen that before either.

Look to the Skies for Signs and Wonders.

The Horrible Pedestrians of San Francisco, Airbnb Edition, Western Addition

September 28th, 2015

Here’s an interesting contrast. The local is jaywalking on the far side of the intersection, and he’s made it most of the way across, and plus he’s running.

Compare that with the Airbnb-type tourists, who, in this case, were on the near side of the intersection, and had not made it most of the way across when their light turned red and, of course, were not running:

The News of the Day:

“Audi said 2.1 million cars worldwide were fitted with the software that allowed parent Volkswagen to cheat U.S. emission tests.¬†Some 1.42 million Audi vehicles with so-called EU5 engines are affected in Western Europe, with 577,000 in Germany and almost 13,000 in the United States, a spokesman for Ingolstadt-based Audi said on Monday.¬†Affected model lines include the A1, A3, A4, A5, A6, TT, Q3 and Q5…”

Oh, and here’s the story of how things came to light.

Now this ride espied in Frisco the other day is too large to be powered by a two litre engine, but even so…
