Beach Boys

Spent the day at Ypao Beach Park in Tumon, working the drink concession stand for the Beach Boys concert that Atkins Kroll put on. It was volunteer work, 50% of our sales go to the American Cancer Society. Unfortunately the beer ran out just as the Beach Boys took the stage. For the next three hours we had to deal with surly crowds bitching about the lack of beer. Seems traffic was so bad getting down into Tumon that the second beer truck couldn’t make it down to the park.

Anyway, it was a fun afternoon listening to the Beach Boys and watching people get progressively drunker and stumble around. If I hadn’t been working, odds are good I would’ve been stumbling around with them. And Guam certainly has no shortage of beautiful women. Seemed like everywhere I looked I saw bikinis today. And that’s a good thing.

I’m pretty tired now. We were supposed to work four hour shifts, but somehow I got corralled into working all day, including set up in the morning and break down after the concert. My dogs are really barking right now. I think I will actually take a nice hot bath tonight before turning in early.

Some Earth Day Related Links

To celebrate Earth Day this year, I posted a few links. First read this article about sustainable lifestyles and ecological footprints. Then take the test. You will be surprised by the results. I know I was.

Here’s a new site I found, the Coral Reef Report, focusing on coral reefs and conservation efforts undertaken to preserve what’s left. It’s good stuff.

Finally, here’s a snippet about how the US Air Force is complying with EPA pollution regulations by replacing the rocket motors on nuclear ICBM’s with more environmentally friendly propellants. However, “EPA regulations do not apply in foreign countries, so no changes are being made to reduce the harmful environmental effects of the nuclear warheads.”
