Still probably my favorite bumper sticker: "What if the Hokey Pokey is what it's all about?"

I forgot how brilliant Bob Dylan's 115th Dream is. Until it came up when I accidentally set my portable CD player to "Random." How perfect is that?

Got an item into Slashdot.

Yesterday I had a walk around the Cannery, and stepped into Jack's bar. Did you know the wood panelling on the walls and molding on the ceiling dates to 1603, England, and was brought over by Hearst for San Simeon, but never used there? Then rescued from a New York warehouse in the 1960s, and used for this totally charming bar, complete with fireplace. Shame that many of us have never been in, because it is at the Wharf. Upstairs, Gary Danko's office space has two rooms with the gorgeous wood, including a fireplace, because it used to be the upstairs of the bar.
