Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Well, Samhain / Halloween is almost here, so it’s time to check out Yelp-rated Clancy’s Christmas Trees and Pumpkin Patch in the Inner Funset* near Lawton and 7th Avenue.

But don’t be afraid to grab your Christian boy or girl and get on over there, as they’ll be welcome as well.

Who needs the suburbs? Who needs Half Moon Bay? Clancy’s has everything needed to satisfy all your pum’kin patch needs and it looks pretty good on a Dreaded Sunny Day:

Always remember, “Dropping Pumpkins Will Hurt Them.”

All right, Blessed Be and Merry Part.

See you there!

*Never ever joke around about how the Inner Sunset maybe, sometimes, just maybe has a bit of fog sometimes or about how there were six parking spaces a stone’s throw away from Park Chow available at eight-something PM on a cold winter’s night. The IS’ers, they don’t like that kind of talk. NOT ONE BIT!

Absolutely nothing.

This was the scene last night at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park during another busy NightLife program. It’s David Mayer de Rothschild, “British adventurer, environmentalist and head of Adventure Ecology,” giving a talk about ecology and his Plastiki boat as a part of the United Nation’s World Oceans Day.

NightLife Welcomes Plastiki, Thursday, June 4

6:00 – 10:00 pm
NightLife, featuring Plastiki and David de Rothschild »

This week, environmentalist David de Rothschild gives two lectures (at 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm) about his upcoming voyage across the Pacific. What makes it unique? He’s crossing the ocean in a 60-foot vessel constructed entirely of recycled materials, mostly plastic water bottles!

De Rothschild will share details of his itinerary, including his plan to navigate the Eastern Pacific Garbage Patch, a floating landfill and man-made disaster that’s twice the size of Texas.

A Seagull Tries to Eat a Snapple Bottle on San Francisco Bay

Friday, December 12th, 2008

[UPDATE: In other news, a Great Blue Heron in Golden Gate Park thinks a beer can is a fish…]

This hungry gull on San Francisco Bay made quite an effort to take a chunk out of an empty floating Snapple bottle. (Birds get confused when things show up in their environment that their ancestors didn’t evolve with, of course)

The problem with recapping your empty glass bottle and tossing it into the Pacific is that the thing is going to float forever and end up in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch or someplace like that.
