SF events 7.17 TROOPS HOME NOW 5pm Powell Mkt Today!

I am a lucky boy. My mom became a teacher so she could take us camping every summer for a month.
I was able to wander off into the wild, jump in rivers, climb trees, scamper up hills, 
explore caves and mineshafts, look at bugs, find hidden treasures, observe and do.
My mom was a lucky girl. Her parents took her camping every summer all across America in a jeep for 6 weeks.
Camping is the BEST gift you can give kids. Adopt some kids: even if just for a camping trip.
If humans are allowed to enjoy nature, they are more likely to protect it.

Down to a Science: Bees 7/17/07, 7-830 PM
Who: Timothy Burroughs, Berkeley Climate Action Coordinator/Beekeeper 
What: "Sweetness and Light: Bees in the 21st Century"
Where: Cafe Royale, 800 Post St. @ Leavenworth The Deets:
Honeybees are crucial to our agricultural industry, pollinating up to one third of our food crops. In the past few years, bees have been disappearing in large numbers without many answers. Why are the bees disappearing? How will it affect our food supply? How will the role of bees and beekeepers evolve in the 21st Century?
Timothy will highlight the amazing efficiency and organization with which bees sustain themselves and our local flora while answering these questions. 
At "Down to a Science", you don't need a science background. Just bring your curiosity and a desire to have fun!

Free Financial Circles seminar Tuesday in Oakland
Question:  is your inner relationship with money helping or hindering your ability to live your life as a work of pure, heart-inspired art?   My purpose is that it help you. 
   With that in mind I'm excited that we've crafted out some of the juiciest segment of our content to give away for free, and so that you can find out where you're at.  If you're one of the many people who have asked me about this work but said you can't attend a weekend course, I hope you'll be able to make it, next Tuesday in Oakland.
   Guy Sengstock, the founder of Arete, is one of the three course designers so you know it's good stuff!  The flyer is below.
   We're also putting together one "Community Circle" from the dance community, which will be highly discounted, and limited to 8 people total, for the August course.  Let me know if you want details.
   Finally, seeking COACHES and WORKSHOP LEADERS - please tell coaches and workshop leaders in your network: we are still taking applications for Circle Leaders, which is a paid position.    Contact for more details.
   Your Relationship with Money
A Free/Benefit Seminar with Financial Circles
July 17th, 7pm
The Bellevue Club, in Oakland on Lake Merritt
Please  Note that the location is a private country club and has a dress code.   Business casual is perfect (in particular no t-shirts or jeans).
   Money is more than a means of exchange ... it's a place where each of us makes deep subconscious associations, and then make daily decisions based on those associations.  What is your inward experience of money?  What impact is your image of money having on your life?    In this evening seminar, the Financial Circles team will facilitate you through an activity where you will become completely aware about this "hidden relationship", and leave with a transformed relationship with that energy we call "moolah".
   The cost?  FREE.  We request that you make a donation to NFTE, an exciting non-profit which teaches entrepreneurship to at-risk youth in the Bay Area.  (The National Foundation for the Teaching of Entrepreneurship, San Francisco chapter, at )
   About Financial Circles:

By bringing together world-class workshop leaders, Certified Financial Planners, sales & marketing professionals, and other topical experts, we offer a comprehensive, holistic approach that will have you in action and living a life that you truly love.

Roaming Hookerfest: Outdoor Video Projection Roaming the Streets of San Francisco
 The Roaming Hookerfest is a traveling outdoor caravan of sex workers
bringing the films to the street. This first-ever Roaming Hookerfest
was developed by Festival co-director, Erica Berman (AKA Fabulous).
Fabulous wanted the festival to reach out past the usual crowds so
she created this guerilla art event. On Friday night of the festival
we will be driving a movie van with films and safer sex materials to
alleyways throughout San Francisco. We will be showing a half hour of
excerpts and short films highlighting the festival. We will post the
locations and the list of movies at our site at:
 Meet us at 16th and Folsom at 9 PM for an elegant soiree on the
streets. Dress up or dress down! Join our caravan afterwards for a
party at Lipo Lounge, Red Lit Dance Nite with DJ Bent in Chinatown. 
Drink, eat Chinese food and discuss 'sex worker sinema' with sex
workers from around the country.
 The movies we will screen focus on entertainment for sex workers on
the street including The Aphrodite Project by Norene Leddy which
presents magical hooker platforms, designed for the street hookers of
the future,  and Jyanta Meetei's Street Survivor a precious portrait
of a Taiwanese street hooker, her time and the cop who arrested her.
 film screenings free, after party $5 (no one turned away)

Become an Extraordinary Lover - For Men who Love Women
Sunday, July 22, 2007 more on this date 9:30 AM
There is nothing more arousing than watching a woman you are making love to writhe and moan with delight. However, there are very few places to get practical, explicit, and straightforward advice about what turns women on.
In this hands-on, one-day workshop, Danielle and Celeste will teach you everything from the arts of romance and seduction to advanced pleasure techniques. They will teach you to read women's non-verbal cues, to elicit information about her secret sexual desires, and to keep her coming back for more.
You will have the opportunity to practice different kinds of touch on a woman, understand her responses, and receive helpful feedback. The facilitators will cover how to give pleasure during a sexual encounter and explore special oral techniques.
The next workshop will take place on Sunday, July 22nd, 9:30am-5:30pm in San Francisco
Tuition is $395. Bring a friend and get $50 off of the original price!
To register for the workshop go to
 For questions call Celeste at (415) 336-3258.

SEX ON WHEELS:Bike Tour/Street Theater traces Sex-Worker History
San Francisco is home to the most politically active community of sex workers in the world, having given rise to C.O.Y.O.T.E., the Sex Worker's Outreach Project, The St. James Infirmary, and the Lusty Lady Co-op. Sex on Wheels is a bicycle tour that traces the cultural history of this community of gold-diggin', ass-whuppin', shit-startin' sex workers, from the Gold Rush of 1848 to the present day.
This year's tour, co-presented by the Sex Worker's Film and Arts Festival and the SF Bike Coalition, features live, costumed docents representing such characters as Chilean and Chinese prostitutes of the gold rush period, queer street youth activists from the 1960s, a hooker/female supremacist/would-be assassin, and the strippers of today's Lusty Lady. Think Colonial Williamsburg - but with whores!

Patriot act is NULL and VOID
Any law that is repugnant to the US Constitution is NULL and VOID.
-Marburry V. Madison, 1803

Declaration of Independence

Beautiful Sattelite Picture of earth.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect
Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the
common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of
Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this
Constitution for the United States of America."
-- Constitution for the USA
By the Unanimous Order of the States at the Constitutional Convention, September 17, 1787

"The Constitution of the United States is a law
for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace,
and covers with the shield of its protection
all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances.
No doctrine, involving more pernicious consequences,
was ever invented by the wit of man than
that any of its provisions can be suspended
during any of the great exigencies of government.
Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism,
but the theory of necessity on which it is based is false;
for the government, within the Constitution,
has all the powers granted to it,
which are necessary to preserve its existence;
as has been happily proved by the result
of the great effort to throw off its just authority."
-- Justice David Davis
(1815-1886) U.S. Supreme Court Justice 1862-1877
Source: Ex parte Milligan 71 U.S. 2 (1866) DAVIS, J., Opinion of the Court

Outside Independence Hall when
the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, 
Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin,
"Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?"
With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded,
"A republic, if you can keep it."
-- Benjamin Franklin
(1706-1790) US Founding Father
