    Here's a better video of the explosion. You get to see it four times in 36 seconds. All's well as long as the Wild Duck was unaffected.....

    There are no food carts anywhere near the Wild Duck I can safely say...

    We do like our beer not to go to waste.....though in those days choices in town were very limited.

    Children on train: "We're tired, cold, hungry, and grumpy. Someone tell us a bedtime story."

    Adult: "Well, once upon a time there was a group of brave pioneers called the Donner Party."

    A few years back I was in an uber-popular restaurant in Berkeley that seated a few hundred and didn't take reservations, so when you got there you signed in and sat in the bar until they called your name over the PA.

    One night the speaker cranked up and the guy said, "Donner, party of 14, party of 13, party of 12, party of 11... oh, never mind!")

    There's an absolutely great old Far Side cartoon about the Donner Party (I sent it earlier to Dr Jay but I can't figure out how to post pictures on this board).

    A group of people are standing around a statue that reads at the base "Donner Party Memorial" - the statue is a sandwich - two pieces of bread with a foot in it.
