The Wrack Line and Oregon Beaches

Wrack Line Blog "about" and "AD policy" can be found below the picture.       What's a "Wrack Line"

Check out Jimmie's pan-fried biscuits, in the "Tasty Breakfast Ideas" Category.

New Category: "Quick Nutritious Lunches". Check out "Jimmies Quick Saute" in that page.

What's NEW in the Wrackline blog?

NEW Addition: "The Standard Superhero Plot"! It's a spoof on Superhero movies, since every superhero movie has essentially the SAME plot! Look in "Essays".

NEW Addition: "Entries from Jimmie's Journal." The home page will feature a quote from my journals, which span from 1975 to the present. It is hoped that these little quotes may lead to a little extra depth of feeling for you, and that some of them might even lead to a greater understanding of our relationship to the Universal Consciousness. There's also a new "Categories" link for past entries.

Current journal entry:

3/8/2005: Imagined conversation: “Well, why are we here?”
 My imagined response:
 “I suppose that the older I get, the less an answer I have for that one. There is no theory that can supply a satisfactory explanation of life.
 Behaviorism is not it.
 How about Freud or Jung’s ideas? Nope.
 Any philosophy? Not found here either.
 Maybe the closest anybody has come to an “answer” is the Budda, who said “I don't have any answers. You do. Don’t be listening to any authority or religion, including me.”
 My own journal entry, written after some years of searching for the "cure" for "mental problems" was: There are no answers and it is asking questions that is the problem.
 Perhaps it would be well to go out by the lake in the morning with the mist floating over the stainless steel waters and the clouds airbrushed to a bright orange iridescence, and just listen to the great universal ‘DUH’.”

Wrackline "about":

The Wracklineblog started with the "Hwy 101 Beaches" links. These lead to individual pages covering more than 70 beaches from Astoria, Oregon down to Brookings, Oregon. Each page has beach/park information, usually a picture of the entrance sign, and one or more scenic pictures taken by the author.        Here's an illustrated sample

 However, the Wracklineblog has expanded, and now has photography tips, an exhaustive list of the most moving ambient music, and a growing health/nutrition section, with vegetarian recipes and nutrition information, and various essays, including the newly-added "excerpts from Jimmie's Journals". Some "HTML coding" references and a cool HTML color tool have also been added.

Wrackline "AD Policy":

NO ads! NOTHING that moves! Period.
 However some of the sections have links that will allow you to purchase books and/or other items. For example, the Photography Tips section offers links to purchase the cameras/lenses that were used to create all the pictures in the blog. If you have an interest for any of these books or items, purchasing them by way of these links will provide a little extra income for the author, who is retired.
