You must be thinking of what we call crawlies, those little mini crayfish. Crayfish is what we call lobsters.

"Schooool's out for summer!" Sorry, I'll stop.

Yup, that building was once a schoolhouse.

That mountain below is MUCH more colorful in person. I think I took 10 pics of this mountain alone! Somebody use their fancy Photoshop skills to enhance the colors!

Ol' Calico was the main place for silver mining in the late nineteenth century. If you look close enough at this pic you can see the entrance to the mine.

Calico suffered from a couple of large fires. Apparently this was the 1880s version of the fire hydrant.

Back scrub, anyone?

Alright, gotta stop.

I went to Calico Ghost Town. About a two-hour drive from LA. Very nice place.

No, still? Well then, how about this:

"Break on through, to the other side! Break on through, to the other side!" <---Wait, that's The Doors....

And yes, that house has glass bottles inserted into its walls. Nice little thing. Sold nothing but zombie/Walking Dead related stuff.

No? Okay, how about:

"Hell bent, hell bent for leather..."

Thanks, Becks!

Yup, saw her again tonight. Smoker (didn't see that one last night) and really out of shape so you are valid opinion on the matter. I did mention your point about the wreck dives (wonderful - I love 'em) and the lobsters but crayfish? Unless you can catch about a few hundred of those little suckers, I wouldn't think that anyone dives for them. No matter as the woman did a 180 on me and said that she had heard that there is wonderful diving in NZ. Hmmm..... Curious.

Well if she is not a scuba diver her opinion is void on that matter lol. There is good diving, I don't know where not being a scuba diver either, I have a friend whose husband dives for crayfish (lobsters?) down in the South Island, and up North you can dive the wreck of the Rainbow Warrior (greenpeace ship bombed by French intelligence agents in the 80s).

"Pounding the world, like a battering RAMMMMMMM!!!!"

Couldn't resist. Got a bit of a tour going out to a Medieval castle here in Brittany today. Way kewl. As it is Sat, I also spoke with a woman from Amsterdam tonight while sipping on a lovely home-made strawberry rum. Said lady SWORE that there was no good diving in New Zealand. Becks? Any comment? That, I find hard to believe. Woman was admittedly not a scuba diver herself but I really question that one. I need some ammo to back up what I doubt should I ever see this lady again!

Anyhoo, the first thing you see at the castle gates! A battering RAMMMMMM!!

Packing for France! You KNOW you are a JP junkie when you are like the babysitter from "Goodfellas" who won't fly without her lucky hat. Damn, forget packing clothes, where is my travelling JP cross?
