Opening Day - IV

12 comments:
My lunch mates were very impressive. We were of course seated with David (current president of Recreational Boaters Of California (RBOC). and Vice Commodore Linda Breninger, along with Linda Bendsen. Linda Bendsen was our driver into the city that morning. She is also Vice President (North) of RBOC.  Dr. Bendsen has been a wonderful friend for a very long time and is also a great mentor to me in everything boating. She took me under her wing long ago and showed me how to be successful in the yachting world. So far she's been right on the money. Her husband Dr. Vern Bendsen is president elect of the International Order of the Blue Gavel (IOBG).

This is a great big thank you for last weeks advertisers. For those that I honor each week/month I'm well aware of the dedication you show. In order to stay in the top of the heap you're dropping EC every single day. Many of you have more than one blog and that's 300 drops per day per blog.

Opening Day III

13 comments:
Finally the parade began and there were over 100 participants this year. A fine showing indeed. We had ringside seats because we were on the port side of the vessel. All the parade participants passed on the port side of the committee boat. We had a great time figuring out what boats we thought should win. There were some great entries. This years theme was 'Building Bridges' and it was interesting to see the different takes on this theme.

Opening Day II

12 comments:
We were up, showered, dressed, packed and ready to check out of our hotel by 7:15am. We moved our vehicle to the Encinal Yacht Club parking lot and waited for our driver to appear so we could head into the city. Soon we were on the San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge and heading into San Francisco.

Bridezilla

6 comments:
Tiffany was planning her wedding and everyone in her wedding party was calling her Bridezilla. She decided she would seek revenge by buying them each a gift they would never forget. Each of her bridesmaids would receive a locket. The beauty of the pendant would catch their eye, it's secret power would catch their minds. Except for Brittany, an obviously brainless bimbo. But AHHHH she had other plans for HER! Brittany would get a special "hair treatment" at the salon. Color purple would look really good on her.

Opening Day I

20 comments:
In February hubby and I attended the Pacific Inter-Club Yacht Association (PICYA) leadership conference at Benicia Yacht Club. These conferences are very important for those folks that are going through the chairs in their yacht clubs. During this conference hubby and I decided we would be silver sponsors for the PICYA Opening Day on the Bay boat parade. We wrote a check for $500 and never thought much about it after that. We had already sent in our RSVPs for seating on the committee boat for this years parade. This was our first year to participate in opening day.

Ageing (British English) or aging (American English) is the accumulation of changes in a person over time. Ageing in humans refers to a multidimensional process of physical, psychological, and social change. Some dimensions of ageing grow and expand over time, while others decline. Reaction time, for example, may slow with age, while knowledge of world events and wisdom may expand.  Source: Wikipedia

Female Style

22 comments:
An old man and woman were married for many years, even though they hated each other. When they had a confrontation, screaming and yelling could be heard deep into the night.

The old man would shout, 'When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave, and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!'

The Virgin

22 comments:
In a tiny village on the Irish coast lived an old lady, virgin and very proud of it. Sensing that her final days were rapidly approaching, and desiring to make sure everything was in proper order when she dies, she went to the town's undertaker (who also happened to be the local postal clerk) to make proper 'final' arrangements.

Comment Game

28 comments:
It's time to play the comment game again. We are at the boat for the weekend (what else is new). Now play nice okay, and have a terrific weekend.

Here's how it goes: I'll start the game off at the bottom of this post by choosing two words or phrases, like coffee or tea, and which ever one you prefer you choose. You can also explain why. When you have done that you do two new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun. If someone derails the game will one of you put it back on track? Thanks.

Bat Tutorial

28 comments:
Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera (/kˈrɒptərə/; from the Greek χείρ - cheir, "hand" and πτερόν - pteron, "wing" whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight. By contrast, other mammals said to fly, such as flying squirrels, gliding possums, and colugos, can only glide for short distances. Bats do not flap their entire forelimbs, as birds do, but instead flap their spread-out digits, which are very long and covered with a thin membrane or patagium. Source: Wikipedia

Deforestation

18 comments:
The term deforestation is often misused to describe any activity where all trees in an area are removed. However in temperate climates, the removal of all trees in an area—in conformance with sustainable forestry practices—is correctly described as regeneration harvest. In temperate mesic climates, natural regeneration of forest stands often will not occur in the absence of disturbance, whether natural or anthropogenic. Furthermore, biodiversity after regeneration harvest often mimics that found after natural disturbance, including biodiversity loss after naturally occurring rainforest destruction.

Advice from Thieves

28 comments:
Thieves are everywhere...well they are in our area. Our neighbors are wonderful and we take care of each other. We are away quite a bit, but our property is not left unguarded. We have an alarm system that is always turned on when we leave. We don't answer the door to folks we don't know.  When we have repair people in our home we lock everything of value up prior to their arrival and then they are in our sight the entire time they are here.
