THE WEST COAST WU PHOTO GATHERING IS HAPPENING IN JUST A FEW DAYS - COMPLETE DETAILS BELOW!



HERE IS THE FINAL SCHEDULE OF EVENTS - SEE YOU IN A FEW DAYS


Greetings Gold Beachers!
The planning committee of Duane Foss (Renosohill), Kristina Rinell (kristinarinall), Rich Watson (quickeye) and Lori Quillen (SVLover) are pleased to announce the final version of the schedule of events for the first annual West Coast Wunderground Photographers meet up in Gold Beach Oregon.

The gathering at Gold Beach

The gathering will be held the weekend of September 14-15-16 in Gold Beach Oregon. Headquarters for the event will be located at the Gold beach Resort. You can reach the reservations desk at 1-800-541-0947. Check out the web site at Gold Beach Resort! Every room has an ocean view and free WIFI!

Friday

Check in at Gold Beach Resort (after 2:00pm) an activity board will be set up in the hotel lobby to inform you all of when and where to meet throughout the weekend.

Friday Night Casual Pizza - BYOP(izza)

Our first night together to finally get to meet one another in person! We also have two distinguished guests coming from the Wunderground staff! Toby Skinner and Aaron Cowdin and their families will be in attendance and they come bearing gifts! After dinner get ready as we head south for the beautiful Pistol River sunset shoot with its iconic monolithic rocks. This rugged view of the Oregon coast can’t be missed! You can see more of the area at: Pistol River.
Sunset time: 7:28pm.

Saturday Morning
6:30am-10:00am, and included in your stay at the Gold Beach Resort, is a HOT BREAKFAST featuring fresh Scrambled Eggs, Belgium Waffles, Biscuits and Sausage Gravy, Bagels and cream cheese, English Muffins, assorted breads, Oatmeal, various cold cereals, fresh fruits and many other breakfast essentials!

Sunrise photo excursion to the Jetty and beautiful Rogue River Bridge! See Rich’s stunning photos of the beautiful bridge and surrounding area above!
Sunrise time: 6:58am

Saturday Morning continued…

Now get ready…this is where the day really takes off in a BIG way!! Jerry’s Rogue River Jet Boat ride!
Take a 64 mile excursion up the Wild and Scenic Rogue River. Wildlife and gorgeous scenery is abundant! Our goal is to fill the boat with our group so that we have total control on where and when to stop for those perfect photo ops. This trip will also be the tame version – no white water, so people concerned with health issues or potential soggy camera equipment need not worry! Cost for this trip is $40.00 each. We have been collecting money for this trip via members mailing checks to Rich Watson(Quickeye). Due to the short amount of time we have left, if you have not yet mailed your check for the Jet boat trip, you should just plan on bringing it with you to give to Rich on Friday.

Rich lives in Gold Beach and has been instrumental in helping us with photo hotspots, and organizing the jet boat trip, arranging the best Jet Boat pilot, and setting up the restaurant for our Saturday night dinner. Thank you so much, Rich!
A lunch stop will be provided on the boat trip, with ‘order from the menu’ selections. Lunch is not included in the price of the trip. Boat departs at 9:30am. Check out: Jerry's Rogue Jets for more on the boat ride! Don’t miss this one!!



Saturday Afternoon
At approximately 4:30pm a trip to the Chowder House is planned for a family style sit down meal. Chef Rob DeLaura has created a scrumptious menu for us!
• Clam chowder
• Noble green salad with house balsamic dressing
• Roast prime rib of beef , natural jus, horseradish cream
• Roasted fingerling potatoes
• Asparagus spears
• Scampi style prawns with garlic white wine butter sauce
• Bourbon bread pudding with vanilla bean ice cream and banana foster sauce
• Coffee include / open bar
The cost for this delicious meal is $23.00 (gratuity included).


Saturday Night

Not tired yet?? Great! Because it’s now time for the Saturday evening sunset photo op. This time we will be heading north to Otter Point. This location has great views from the bluffs overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean, providing the perfect backdrop for the sunset. Sunset time: 7:26pm.

Sunday Morning

6:30-10:00am Repeat of breakfast if staying at the Gold Beach Resort.

Sunrise photo shoot…this time up the Rogue River with our resident guide, Rich Watson! Rich will share some of his favorite hot spots for shooting those great wildlife shots he is famous for getting! The Rogue River is not to be missed!
Sunrise time 6:59am.



There will be plenty of time to wander the area to find the perfect spots for the type of photography you enjoy most, and to try new and exciting opportunities to stretch your photographic muscles! Rich will be available Friday through Monday to help point you in the right direction for those staying longer.

If anyone has a camera! Haha! Can you just see the lobby of their hotel, as they all gather with their cameras, comparing lenses, tripods, chatting about SD cards, ambient lighting, shutter speeds... BEFORE they even introduce themselves to each other? I love it!

World History According to College Students

"Non Campus Mentis: World History According to College Students."


"History, a record of things left behind by past generations, started in 1815. Thus we should try to view historical times as the behind of the present. This gives incite into the anals of the past."

"Civilization woozed out of the Nile about 300,000 years ago. The Nile was a river that had some water in it. Every year it would flood and irritate the land. This tended to make the people nervous."

"Judyism was the first monolithic religion. It had one big God named 'Yahoo'."

"Noah's ark came to it's end near Mt. Arafat."

"These pre-Socratics lived long before Plato and were not decisively influenced by his work."

"Plato invented reality. He was teacher to Harris Tottle, author of The Republicans."

"Socrates was accused of sophmorism and sentenced to die of hemroyds."

"Cesar inspired his men by stating, 'I came, I saw, I went'. When he was assassinated, he is reported to have said, 'Me too, Brutus!'"

"Eventually Christians started the new religion with sayings like, 'The mice shall inherit the earth.' Later Christians fortunately abandoned this idea."

"Romans persecuted Christians by lionizing them in public stadiums."

"Without the discovery of the flying buttock it would have been an impossible job to build the Gothic cathedral."

(Regarding the Black Plague): "Death rates exceeded 100% in some towns."

"This was a time of stunned growth. The plague also helped the emergence of English as the national language of England, France, and Italy."

"Renaissance merchants were beautiful and almost life like. They enriched themselves by planting wool and selling it for clothing. They increased these profits by paying interest to people who borrowed money from them. This produced even more grits for the mills of change."

"Hitler, who had become depressed for some reason, crawled under Berlin. Here he had his wife Evita put to sleep, and then shot himself in the bonker."

"The Allies landed near Italy's toe and gradually advanced up her leg, where they hoped to find Mussolini."

"Stalin, Rosevelt, Churchill, and Truman were known as the 'Big Three.'"

"Unfortunately the Second World War was not concluded until1957. A whole generation had been wiped out in two world wars,and their forlorne families were left to pick up the peaces."

"The Civil Rights movement in the USA turned around the corner with Martin Luther Junior's famous 'If I Had a Hammer' speech."

"The East and West made amends with each other. The Berlin Mall was removed. Many Eastern Europeans experienced a new form of arousal at this time."

"It is now the age of now. This concept grinds our critical, seething minds to a halt."

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."

She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed.

My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.


I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much.
I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.
I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.
I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous person I admired most.



I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where I am now...

*One day I was walking down the beach with
Some friends when someone shouted.....
'Look at that dead bird!'
Someone looked up at the sky and said...'where?'

They walk among us!

------------------------------------------------- ---------

While looking at a house, my brother asked the
Estate agent which direction was north because
He didn't want the sun waking him up every morning.
She asked, 'Does the sun rise in the north?'
My brother explained that the sun rises in the east
And has for sometime. She shook her head and said,
'Oh, I don't keep up with all that stuff......'

They Walk Among Us!
--------------------------------------------

My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard an admin girl talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the beach.
She drove down in a convertible, but said
she 'didn't think she'd get sunburned
because the car was moving'.

They Walk Among Us!
------------------------------------

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car
which is designed to cut through a seat belt
if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk
-------------------------------------------------
I was going out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain.
My friend said, 'Ouch! The chain must rip
out every time she turns her head!"
I had to explain that a person's nose and ear
remain the same distance apart no
matter which way the head is turned...

They Walk Among Us !
-------------------------------
I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area and went to the lost luggage office and reported the loss.
The woman there smiled and told me not to worry
because she was a trained professional and
said I was in good hands. 'Now,' she asked me,
'Has your plane arrived yet?'...
(I work with professionals like this.)

They Walk Among Us!
------------------------------------------------
While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man
ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut
into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time
then said 'Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.

They Walk Among Us!



Dumb as a box of Rocks
TRUE STORY:

A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Rick Perry happened to appear. Gov. Perry took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.

'Would you mind telling me, Doctor,' he asked, 'how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?'

'Nothing is easier,' he replied. 'You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track..'

'What sort of question?' asked Perry.

Well, you might ask, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?''

Perry thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, 'You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history.'
Sadly, they walk among us!

Traffic Camera

A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding... Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area again, but the traffic camera again flashed. He tried a fourth time with the same result. He did this a fifth time and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this time at a snail's pace... Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt..

You can't fix stupid.

What is a "free" gift? Aren't all gifts free?

I very quietly confided to my best friend that I was having an affair. She turned to meand asked, 'Are you having it catered'?

And that, my friend, is the definition of 'OLD'!

Garden Snakes also known as Garter Snakes(Thamnophissirtalis) can be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes. Here's why.

A couple in Sweetwater , Texas , had a lot of potted plants. During a recent cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze.

It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of the plants. When it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go under the sofa.

She let out a very loud scream.

The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to see what the problem was. She told him there was a snake under the sofa.

He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind. He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor.

His wife thought he had had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to lie still and called an ambulance.

The attendants rushed in, would not listen to his protests, loaded him on the stretcher, and started carrying him out.

About that time, the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency Medical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher. That's when the man broke his leg and why he is still in the hospital.

The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on a neighbor who volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch.. Soon he decided it was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief.

But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she felt the snake wriggling around. She screamed and fainted, the snake rushed back under the sofa.

The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to revive her.

The neighbor's wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery store, saw her husband's mouth on the woman's mouth and slammed her husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and cutting his scalp to a point where it needed stitches.

The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that the snake had bitten him. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man's throat.

By now, the police had arrived.
Breathe here...

They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the women tried to explain how it all happened over a little garden snake!

The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his sobbing wife.

Now, the little snake again crawled out from under the sofa and one of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it. He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over, the lamp on it shattered and, as the bulb broke, it started a fire in the drapes.

The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and smashed into the parked police car.

Meanwhile, neighbors saw the burning drapes and called in the fire department. The firemen had started raising the fire ladder when they were halfway down the street. The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires, put out the power, and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city block area (but they did get the house fire out).

Time passed! Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car and all was right with their world.

A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold snap for that night. The wife asked her husband if he thought they should bring in their plants for the night.

And that's when he shot her.

Differences between men and women:

NICKNAMES
· If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
· If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wild Man .

EATING OUT
· When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
· When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

MONEY
· A man will pay $20 for a $10 item he needs.
· A woman will pay $10 for a $20 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

BATHROOMS
· A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
· The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 10 of these items.

ARGUMENTS
· A woman has the last word in any argument.
· Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

FUTURE
· A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
· A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.


MARRIAGE
· A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
· A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

DRESSING UP
· A woman will dress up to: go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
· A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

NATURAL
· Men wake up looking the same as when they went to bed.
· Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

OFFSPRING
· Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
· A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!
