As for Woodstock 99, old hippies would have been okay, probably, it was the nouveau hippies that were the problem, people who weren't even born in 1969 and wouldn't know a peace protest from a crowd waiting for tickets to the Superbowl. I'm not saying Woodstock the First was altogether pleasant, but the one here was rather violent, a few murders, rapes, and lots of arson (setting a bunch of tractor trailers on fire at the end). They also leveled 3 acres of virgin timber so they could put tents, wiping out a legally set aside bird sanctuary with lots of rarish birds living there. (They actually paid friends and family to chop them down and sell the wood on top of it. Many people in the area would have harvested the trees for nothing and made their money selling the timber, but then friends and family wouldn't have been able to turn a dishonest buck, now would they?) The whole shebang was run by the biggest criminals in the area, and they managed to funnel all the profits to New Jersey. The only good thing was that it cost them a fortune to clean up the trash, an operation that took literally months. As for noise, I live about 6 miles from the runway as the crow flies. Very loud at 3 in the morning and deafening right next to it on the golf course. But like you say, it was a one time disaster. You do have my sympathies having to cope with it every year!
    That's all you had to say Jim.
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    And the temp on the runway had to be running around 120*. Gosh, how much fun can you possibly have, with water at a $5 a bottle, beer at $10? And no toilet facilities. They were worried about cholera and dysentery for a while.

    I can only tink of two words --- disgusting and criminal. Horrific also comes to mind.

    OK. That is bad.

    The festivals and rallies I used to go to were, in general, good natured, non violent and non destructive. Even at the Bulldog Bash, run by "The England" - our local Angel Chapter - there was rarely trouble. The hippy festivals, until commercialised, were simply a bit disorganised. I've only got good memories of those times (Turning up at Stonehenge in 1980, I think, to find that the girl who had "organised" our tent had neglected to bring any poles for it. I thought it packed on the bike rather too easily. A few nights spent in a canvas bag...)

    @freestoke ; Jim... I do NOT!, hold you responsible. I'm sure you were disappointed at those "unruly hippies" and just wondering how it all went wrong .

    Ready for the first inning with cubed Tambo wielding an E. Nording straight billiard poised for the Stockton roll cake rub and P&C's rest of the best to load up the bases.

    Same old comfortable rut - Royal Yacht in the meer. Really tired of the incessant rain and gloom - you'd think after 18 years in the Pacific Northwest I'd be used to it, but the South Texan in me is craving some sun and heat.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    Human nature always looks else where. Think of those poor souls drenched insweat looking for a bit of that cool shade to rest in? Plus you don't have bugs there. Just snails LOL

    From When Alfred Dunhill opened his shop on Duke Street in 1907 it was not a pipe shop, to be sure a scattering of pipes were offer :

    ...a few years later, in 1912, bespoke blending took a back seat again as Alfred Dunhill introduced his first pre-packaged ‘name’ blends: “Royal Yacht”, “Cuba” and “Durbar”. And priced not at the “My Mixture” 10/8 but at the very considerable premium of 16/- per lb for “Durbar” and 21/- per lb for “Royal Yacht” and “Cuba”.


    "Royal Yacht" was first produced in 1912, exactly 101 years before the discovery of the Higgs Boson. Coincidence?

    Royal Yacht makes you smarter. Think I'll boost my IQ a few points right now.
