Feast Of The Woke

It’s the last Saturday in July 2021 and not a hint of anything Feast Of Lanterns on the streets. They say the were not sure if there was going to be a feast so no one got a permit.

FOL 1 2021

And it would cost $2,5000 to put up banners or lanterns. But we got banners to celebrate internal combustion powered personal motor cars. How substainable can that be?

FOL 2 2021

I’d say that the people put in charge are working to cleanse the FOL of all it’s perceived racist cultural misappropriation and sterilize the celebration. No corny stories, no jewel tinted gowns. No Torii gates. No belly dancers. No showing of affection between man and woman. No dragon. No Chinese fonts. No fun. Just a lecture telling you to be ashamed using a collection of folk tales for selfish entertainment.

Stick a fork in it, the Feast Of Lanterns is done and gone forever it seems.

Dumpster Update: They Built A Covered Shed To Keep Animals Out

Saw these two back in April, same old same old. Cant teach people to close the lid to quit attracting gulls, raccoons and rats

This one I saw someone from the do-no-wrong Grove Market emptying garbage and walked away leaving it open.

And down the street at P.G. Juice N Java – yep. A gull’s buffet.

What can we do? Let’s build the kids a playhouse to hide the trash in. What do they do? Yep, leave it open.

Signs Posted For Visitors

Visitors like Ben Harvey and police chief Cathy Madalone now can better understand where they are in the city they are in charge of.

Got two signs at the rec trail (where the chief said there were none)
Welcome Trail Signs

This huge Lovers Point sign at the beach.

Another smaller sign at Otter Point

Then it gets weird. Over at Point Pinos it says Asilomar

One turnout is named Crespi Pond

Then in a weirder twist, a turn out named after a non existent fog horn.

Four Way Stop Coming To Pine & Congress

The Pine Avenue work has been discussed at P.G. traffic commission and city council meetings for more than five years.
But the four-way stop will be something that drivers will have to get used to.
“We are going to have to make sure that the public now knows there is a four-way stop at Congress,” Gho said.

Good luck with that. People don’t stop on Congress where stop signs have been for decades.
