The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia’s Christmas Island and start a long, laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island’s central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place in November or December (the crabs will only move when it’s raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the arrival of the waning moon.

Sam's Special 5Sam's Special. 3Sam's Special Sam's Special. 2Sam's Special 4

While surfing the internest, I spotted the buck sign and my first impulse was “I want to go there.” Then I found what appeared to be related images, but I wasn’t sure if they were photos of the same place or where it was. On a whim I googled “Sam’s Hamburgers” and everything synched up.

Sam’s is a popular burger joint in San Francisco, the owner’s name is not Sam, and it was established in 1966. I read this review from 2013 and decided to include a visit to Sam’s on my bucket list.

Then I found this. Apparently owner Mike Shawa (nephew of the founder) passed away recently at the age of 70. Damn. That’s still young these days. The place survived the opening of a Carl’s Jr. down the street, so I expect it will survive this setback, too.

And it’s still on my bucket list.

Ham Radio Beer

“Here’s a message from Milwaukee”
This thoughtful wife knows that the moment her husband tunes in on Schlitz the reception is good. For Schlitz has a very special taste that beer-lovers are changing to with ultra high frequency. Taste Schlitz, yourself. You’ll soon know why–

Something’s wrong with that picture. His code key is missing, he should be drinking Hamm’s and he’s leering, but why? Maybe he knows that The 2016 Amateur Radio Relay League Field Day is 25-26 June.

Bigass Farm Crabs

Field Crabs

To raise awareness to the issue of air and environmental pollution, artists created three gigantic straw crabs on Shanghai’s Chongming Island late last month [Dec. 2015].
[…]
Coal is the biggest source of China’s air pollution, but straw burning is also an issue of major concern. Although straw burning is banned, many farmers continue the age-old tradition to turn leftover straw into ash fertilizer. Crop burning also helps farmers save on labor costs and is considered an efficient way to rid farmlands of leftover stalks, which are seen as waste material. The practice is most prevalent in the China North Plain, and winds carry the smoke to nearby regions.

Damn those industrious peasants. They always find ways to get things done cheaper… because they have to.

Oh, and if you were wondering, that’s a Haggis. Only Scots eat them, and it explains and justifies the honorable tradition of wearing kilts.
