    You seem to have done a lot of in-depth research.
    There's story behind (no pun intended) the Ram Rod Club in Frisco.

    It was during the mid 80's and a business associate of mine from Texas a real cowboy and I has just landed at SOF and took a cab to our hotel. While driving down the road he sees this sign (Ram Rod Club) and what looks like a club. Most people think of ram rod as a boss on a cattle drive. My friend says, "Hey Rat, they have a country western bar in San Fransisco." It took me a minute to figure it out, that it wasn't a country western bar but I didn't say nothing.

    That night my buddy from Texas want to know if I wanted to check out that country western bar, I said no I'm just going to hang out in the hotel room tonight. I didn't say nothing.

    About two hours later there was a knock on my door. There he stood, red faced and said "You knew didn't you" ? I couldn't keep a straight face and broke out laughing.

    In San Fransisco, ram rodding is buggery.

    That means they stole too much money from the citizenry. So you support stealing.

    With a name like "Ram Rod Club," in San Francisco.... lemme guess
    I've never visited the Winchester House but Huell Howser did a 60 minute special on it. Pretty cool house.

    For anyone who are guessing, yes the same Winchester's as the Winchester rifle.

    Palm Springs is gay as a rainbow. Its a fascinating mix of wealthy old folks, gays, and illegal immigrants working the valley.

    Y'know APACHE, I rarely agree with you on anything.
    However, I must give you credit for your insatiable quest for knowledge.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    McClintock??
    The professional politician?
    Jeez, the guy moves all over the state, from district to district, in an effort to keep his GOVERNMENT job.
    The only guy worse than Tom is Dan Lunngren.
    They're both career bureaucrats.
    Beats working, I guess.

    EDIT: Not really a fan of Arnie's anymore....the guy humiliated his girl...unforgivable.
    Well if you like illegal aliens and being taxed, you're not going to like McClintock.

    He only moved once, from SoCal to NorCal where he would be in a safe district to take his fight against waste and high taxes to Washington D.C.

    It's nice that the gay community found a place to get away from West Hollywood on the weekends and frolic in the frickin heat in Palms Springs.

    Good for Governor Brown and the legislature. I though for sure California would be the first state ever to go bankrupt. My hat off to Governor Jerry Brown.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
