Sign seen on Industrial Place just off Sunny Dunes, a gay strip in Palm Springs. Pope’s joint here seems to be a het titty bar. Who knew his holiness dabbled in such ventures? Interesting times.

Sight seen outside a storage facility in Ukiah, in Mendocino County in Northern California. Back in the day, the NorCal economy was based on logging, plus fishing on the coast, some fruit and nut farming and some sheep and cattle ranching. Now, it’s vineyards in Marin, Sonoma and South Mendocino. Further north, Mendocino, Humboldt and Trinity counties comprise “the Emerald Triangle” – world-famous as a center of 420 culture, and prosperous due to an economy based on Marijuana cultivation.
What does THAT have to do with THIS photo? Let us translate. In the local jargon “This facility is used frequently as a training ground for law enforcement K-9 units” means “Don’t store your inventory here.” Word to the wise, no shit Sherlock and Duh! Enjoy your day and don’t let the doggies getcha!

Groovy! I think he is going to say yes. The Phelps don’t like it, though. Poor things. Photo via cool vintage gay singer/songwriter Blackberri and the Son of Baldwin blog – the literary, socio-political, sexual, pop culture blog live from Bedford-Stuyvesant.

One of several penis wines intended to increase potency. Dog and deer are also popular, as is the special three-penis combination. Do the PETA people know? Or are they still too busy throwing water balloons at bikers? Gung Hay Fat Choy! 2013 is the Chinese Lunar Year of the Snake.
