Tropical Storm Helene Heading to The U.K.!
« on: September 16, 2018, 1651 UTC »
   You don't see this very often, a tropical storm that 1st was thought to be a concern to the NE USA / Canada did a complete hook-shot and now threatens Ireland and the UK,    https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at3+shtml/144450.shtml?mltoa34#contents This could make for some interesting monitoring of emergency communications from there. In the meantime, Florence continues to be an extreme slow moving pain in the ass state-side.  https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

The west coast of Ireland has become a surfing mecca in the past couple of decades due to the big waves generated by what's left of the Gulf Stream and prevailing winds. They'll have their boards waxed up and kegs of Guinness on the beach for this one.

I wonder if Dick Dale will play an electric harp for the beach party?
