Cedarford Speaks...

  1. Tippi Hedren was very hot in her era - and at the risk of sounding like a pervert, she's still very attractive when you consider her age. I know her son, Scott and he is a handsome guy. Her daughter Melanie is likewise attractive.

    Pack up all my care and woe,
    Here I go,
    Singing low,
    Bye bye blackbird

  2. Cedarford is wrong about crows. They have the largest brain to body ratio of any animal (humans included). Crows have very long memories, can plan attacks and take defensive action immediately (as anyone who has tried to shoot one can tell you).

    Okay, I am being geeky now.

    LL's comments on Tippi Hendren are actually more interesting.

  3. EBL, I've experienced the uber Crow...Ravens, in Alaska. They are smart, work as teams, and mean as hell.

  4. I thought this was an allegory about Muzzies.

  5. Crows are smarter than muzzies.

    I have been to Bodega Bay many times, never heard anyone speak as the "locals" do in that clip.

  6. They were!

    What's funny is that the school house where the children were attacked is 6 or 7 miles away in the town of Bodega. In the movie they all run, turn a corner, and bam - there they are in the town of Bodega Bay, whereas in real life you have to drive, get on highway 1 then drive a bit more, then you arrive in BB.

    What are time and distance to the land of make believe, am I right?

  7. I've been to Bodega Bay too, Sixty and noticed the same thing about the spatial compression. The schoolhouse does seem to be well preserved which tends to happen in private hands.

  8. I was last there in the late '80s and I think it was an antique store or something. When I was there I did scan the trees looking for crows, however, as that movie made a big impression on me. There were none, we were good.

  9. Have you ever been out to the Mitch Daniels house out around the Bay?

  10. Not yet.

    The biggest shame is that I missed going to Point Reyes National Seashore - more's the pity.

  12. Ol' Troop bein' Troop!

    The history of Point Reyes that I like is that the land was once in the LA area and it has traveled north along the San Andreas fault. I may be misremembering that, but clearly the fault line runs right though there.
