I've attended the artichoke festival twice in the mid to late 80s

I must have missed this. It's gotten a lot crappier and more expensive. The only good thing I can say is that for the past three years, they've had Malo playing in concert over there. Last year, Jorge Santana was also there, and I'm still pissed that I didn't make it back for that.

We won't talk about 2005's artichoke king.....William Hung. 8-P

Ouch!

Person 1: How's your sister doing?

Person 2: She's doing a lot better. Still pretty medicated, but the doctors say that she may be able to use the finger again someday.

Person 3: What happened to her finger?

Person 2: A chimpanzee that she was studying bit it off.

My gosh, there are so many thousands of these wacky sites, but for a simple one, try

http://www.stumbleupon.com

Just enter a username, pw and any ol' email addy and click your interests (or not) and begin a tour of thousands of very interesting sites. You can add your own sites also. Most sites that I enjoy grow tiresome in time, but this opens a cornucopia of addictive sites with each click. If one comes up of little interest, just click the button and a good one will appear...as if the 'net didn't make me neglectful enuf of my chores already, I stumbled upon this one!

"Whatever Happened to ‘Dust to Dust’? You Can Still Find It in Green Burial

By the time Nate Fisher was laid to rest in a woodland grave sans coffin in the final season of Six Feet Under, Americans all across the country were starting to look outside the box when death came calling.

Grave Matters follows a dozen such families who found in “green” burial a more natural, more economic and ultimately more meaningful alternative to the tired and toxic send-off on offer at the local funeral parlor. "
